    I'm changing my theme to "Our Birthstones". That means blender-type fabrics in ruby red, sapphire blue, peridot green
    (a light yellow green) and turquoise. Think of me when you look at your scraps. A good block is Planned Patchhood,
    but many will work. And I will side swap w you! Dotty

    So does that mean you can got to planned patchhood and get contraceptives for the Quilt Fabric.......LOL
    As soon as I get caught up on the Pass the blocks I will do side swaps.....
    For your birthstone blocks, what about a pieced block of gem with the colors you need, like a pear cut, an empress cut etc.......

    I really enjoy seeing blocks when they are posted and I hope people start doing more posting. There are a lot of swappers in this group, but so few seem to post pictures since the new version.

    CJR my birthday is also July 1st.

    Dotcom your birthstones are almost identical to mine, Ruby, sapphire, peridot
    aqua marine and garnet instead of turquouise.

    Robert I also have a block on the way to you and Cathy.

    Terriamn,
    Thank you so much for thinking of us. We were married on St. Patricks Day ...... LOL
    We didn't even think about that it was St. Patricks day. We just picked a date that all of the family could be there. Isn't that a hoot.

    Have you all noticed that our friend Paintmejudy has started a Mystery quilt? Look under BOM. You add something every 2 weeks. Sounds like fun!! Makes a small piece!

    I'm thinking about it. My main focus in the next few weeks is to finish a few quilts that need finishing. Also do BOM. I just did placemat swap, that was fun. Also making quilted favors and table toppers for 50th Anniversary party in June.

    I love the basket block but the teal star block would go perfectly with my blocks. As I make a block for each of my Monthly Quilting Bee Swap partners I also make one for me using the same pattern but in the aqua/turquoise color family. The turquois block is from Shnnn and the two aqua blocks are replicas of the blocks I sent to Amber2009 for Feb.

    If you look closely under the blocks you can see I have the pattern drawn out for a pp block. That is the pattern I used for Shnnn, my Jan. swap partner. (Pattern from QuiltersCache-State of Maine block.)

    The phd on the table is the quilt top I am doing for the Quilt for Quilters swap. It'll be going to QuilterMomma in the next couple of months.

    Then there is the log cabin I am working on using one of my treadle machines. And then there is .... :-)

    best,

    I do the same thing, as I make a block for swap, I make one for myself. That way I have practice and can send the nicer one to swapper. There are a couple i did not do this with and wish I had. Quite a variety of colors and themes.

    I have read about how up-set some of your are. For my part I am sorry I got so far behind on my blocks. Like /corry I had things happening and it felt like one bad thing after another. However I too did get my blocks to you all. But not everyone got thier block to me and they never said anything. Not even when my block got to them. Did I find out they recieved they're block. tisk tisk.

    Sorry you are upset wannabquilter, We are like a family, after 40 years with my wife sometimes we just don't get the things done we said we would do. but we have learned when that happens either she will do my part or I will do hers. It's about being a family and YOU are part of our family. If you ever need help with your blocks and can't get them done, YOU have my permisoon to PM me and ask me for help. I'd love to do it for you. I have done it for others that had got sick or just couldn't do it. No worries you are appreciated and we love having you.

    Robert, I would so love to meet you and your wife. You have such a wonder spirit about you. I was venting back, because after this last year I know that LIFE happens and we don't have control, God does. I have no right to be up-set. I did take too long.
