    Thanks for the ideas, shnn. I don't mind setting up a participant/theme list as a "discussion" in the Group section. I have editing priviledges there so I could make any theme changes that I am informed of. I really like your "*" suggestion.
    Thank you!

    Thanks for posting my block. I still hve to learn how to do that and the forum has nothing to do with it. I couldn't do it with the last set up. Will work at it.

    Can you correct my ignorance on this? How are sunflowers associated with ALS? My grandfather had that. Thanks.

    Depression block

    Molly,
    I finshed up your first block and working on the second. it will be done tonight. Haven't done a pieced block in a while so it took me a little longer. Here are a couple of pics.
    All the best

    Thanks, It's been a long time since I did a pieced block. I do so much embroidery blocks, but i need to get back to piecing to keep up my skill.
    Thanks again

    Reporting Chrickett's block because I deleted the source code by accident



    Also, fox flower asked why sunflowers have anything to do with ALS. The logo of the ALS sunflower is a stylized sunflower. It looks like this.



    So I'm making quilts for each member of my family who has had or has ALS. Five in all.

    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    That is not greedy. I know how hard you work on other peoples blocks, like the pink poodles you did for my wifes Paris quilt for her breast cancer. They were spectacular and the hand blanket stitching was just perfect.
    I finally had some spare time (lol). So I found this panel of a geshia dancer (lived in the orient and south seas for many years) so i made this quilt for me with pieced fans and latners around the panel and it turned out great. I machine free motion on my home machine and it was awesome. One of my quilting friends came over and she wanted to know what I was working on so I showed her my Gesiha quilt and she just loved it and by the way she looked at it I knew she REALLY Loved. So I put it away in the closet and forgot about it for a month or so. My wife and I are talking one morning before chemo and she asked who tom and Loretta were ( Loretta my quilting friend). That's all it took. I told Cathy that I was feeling like god was asking me if I would be willing to give up my geshia quilt to Loretta. so when we got home, I wrapped it up and we took a drive over to Tom and Lorettas and gave her the package. You would have thought we gave her a million dollars......She went crazy. To make a long story shorter, I learned not to hold on to things to tightly. But the joy I got from seeing her really happy was the best reward.
    I still have one I made for me, the Oliva's puzzle quilt. and I love it.
    All the best

    It is ok to keep a few for yourself, it is what makes us make for others more desireable. Sometimes I cuddle under them for awhile and then I give them away. I know it sounds silly, but I just want to enjoy the comfort of them and I know I can always make me another. now to get busy and make those others.

    Agreed

    You are so right. Sometimes we put 5 or 6 quilts on our bed and open the windows in winter and I can't describe the feeling of cuddling under the quilts and hearing a storm out side with a good movie on.....LOL

    I would probably go with a light cream and any color. The cream background could unify a delicious selection of scrappy blocks. I am starting back on my "Scrappy Trails" top and the unifying fabric is the cream background tone on tone.

    The question is, do you enjoy the swap? If so, continue on, maybe opt out if yu feel overwhelmed. I am just now getting back into this after life happened. I too managed to get behind and have sent blocks to those assigned me that I hadn't sent on time. I hope they will let me know when they recieve the blocks I sent. If not, oh well, I have fulfilled my end. I am stockpiling a variety of blocks just for those partners I may get who haven't a specific theme or color. That way, if my assigned partner doesn't have time to contact me with specifics, I can send his/her block as best it happens. WilliP

    February block swap

    Reminder: I will be posting the list of February partners sometime tonight in the GROUP section. I will also be adding a February discussion line for participants to post notes that are specifically related to the Feb. swap (when blocks are sent, received, comments, etc).
    I will also be working on a list of participants and their block themes and if they would like to do extra swaps. Please let me know by PM if you would like to do extra swaps.
    Thanks for your participation and cooperation.

    Sorry I haven't been on much, I havent been feeling to well, but I'm starting to get back into things. I've already sent the top in I used yellow and purple with applique fish. So thanks for the offer, wish I would of seen it sooner.

    I like this swap and the others, I want to continue swapping, just know that sometimes my back gives me fits, and sometimes hard to get out of bed so I don't except to go to the bathroom. But I haven't let any one down getting there blocks to them, I don't think I've been late on this swap yet...And can't wait to get started on Feburary ...

    The blocks being sent around are awesome great job!

    I have posted the February list of parters in the Group section.
    Sorry - it's not how I wanted it to look but maybe someday I will figure out how to make tables there. If someone can help me figure it out, I would be most appreciative.
    Enjoy the February swap!!
