    I would hope not. Many of those blocks are harder and the smaller size doesn't make it easier. I would think it an even swap because of that. Watching to see what others say.

    Hi all,
    I posted a photo of my block for Shnnn. My inspiraton for her block was easy. She is an outdoor enthusiast with many hobbies.

    The pattern for her block was from Quilterscache.com. It is titlted 'State of Maine'. The state flower for Maine is the pine cone and tassle which is how I describe 'my location'. In my stash I happened to have fabric that has pine cone and tassle and some that resembles birch bark, a tree native to the State of Maine.

    Shnnn, hope you like it.

    best,
    d
    My best is the least I can do.

    I would like to know why a lot aren't responding - do they not check the board as often as we do? I sent a msg. to last month's swappee, and one the other day to my current swappee and haven't heard from either.

    Speaking for myself, it's because life throws us curveballs and we sometimes find it hard to deal with all that is going on. I have been less active on the board than I would like. and have been very slack at responding to pms. For this I would apologise to all, also my swap prtners who have yet to receive their blocks. They will all be honored, but I am having a hard time catching up.
    Robert, thank you so much for the beautiful purple blocks you sent. The pics on here just do not do them justice. I am in the midst of your fan blocks. Hope to send them on Tuesday next week.

    I never heard from my last month's partner either. PM MadeinMaine so that she can delete some people off the list. I think maybe we lost several with the changeover in format....

    Lindyline, Take a deep breath. We all get those times in our lives. I coming out of one with Cathy's Breast cancer treatment, now that it's over and the Doc's said things look real good. I can breath now.
    Glad you liked your blocks.

    I wish people would respond. I have heard from my swap partner once, but I have questions for her, and she has not responded to me. I am confused as what I need to do.

    Now I have another question. My partner said she is new at this, and so she doesn't have a lot of theme to work with. One of my favorite blocks is the Ohio Star. I thought since she was from Ohio that would work great. My question is colors, she doesn't have anything specific. So, I am asking you to help me decide on colors. What would you go with?

    I would go with a neutral color, a blue and white or a brown and off white. Then she can decide from there.

    What about using the colors of the ohio flag, which is red, white and blue and the state flower is the scarlett carnation. Maybe that would be a good start.
    Welcome aboard,
    All the best

    cjr -- recieved the block. Thank you so much. It's going to fit right in. LOVE the moon! I think the sunflowers will be appropriate and the stars too. Improvisation can be fun. Hope you enjoyed the process. Here's a pic....

    A friend & I went to the Oklahoma City Winter Quilt Show today and I met Jaciqltznok. It was a nice day all in all. I met 2 other ladies that I'm friends with on Facebook, both from Oklahoma. It's always nice to put a face with the computer image. ;o) I even got to find things I had on my list, and yes, these are 'needful' purchases..lolo It was a really nice day, inside - VERY cold out tho..

    I agree with Jean, unless your good in math and can figure out how to change the size to make a 12 1/2" block unfinished

    Reminds me of my aunts jeans and plaid shirts quilt. All nice and heavy with wool blanket for batting and Pendleton wool shirts used for the back/lining. All lovingly tied and used for outings and cold Idaho winters and as far as I know still in use by her great grands and great great grands!

    cjr,

    I love these blocks. I especially like Ragedy Ann and Andy. I also like the one with the trucks. I will have to show these to my daughter. We are working on baby quilts for her and her sister-in-law hopefully this weekend. She will just love them.
