    Here are my two beautiful, perfectly pieced Log Cabin blocks from Terriamn. They are simply wonderful - so square and lay flat.

    If you are lucky enough to get her for a partner, you are getting perfection! The back of her work is as beautiful and perfect as the front.

    Can I keep her for as long I want? ~jk~. I was taught to share all my good fortunes :-)

    A huge 'Thank you, Terriamn!"

    best,

    Thanks for the compliments Whigrose, loved making your blocks and the ones you made for me look gorgeous, can't wait to see them in person. They will compliment the great blocks I already have.

    Scrapper and I have exchanged blocks for January. She sent me a beautiful " Log Cabin Block" for my up-coming Civil War Quilt. I sent her a "Hole in the Barn Door" in Red and White, and she loved it.
    We are "good to go" for February!

    TamMoo, I love the blue used in this block. I can't wait to see your blocks all together. I think turquoise and brown is fabulous together.

    Ssnare, I love how rich the purple (?) and yellow look together.

    Whigrose, your log cabins are gorgeous. I've never done a true log cabin yet. I will have to try one. It is on my "to do" list.

    So far Robert I am loving the pink and black blocks, I only have four so far but I think once I get enough for a quilt with theses I might do black and white with a splash of color, someone else posted pics of that and I thought that was beautiful, But I love pink so I am loving how the blocks are coming in and how the different material then what we have here.

    So how many blocks does everyone use before they make there quilt, do you do the swap for 12 month then make your quilt and start with a new theme and color the following year or what does everyone make and how long do you go before you change up your theme?

    That's exactly what I do....unless I get more people to trade w/me before 12 months is up and I get them all sooner. I have a purple and white theme going on now and I too, want/will do a black and white w/a splash of color next theme.

    If you do a lot of side swaps, you can finish your quilt faster. Check the list to see who is offering extra swaps.

    Here's what I do.......

    I start with my block that I want to make a quilt of. I have done Applique roosters, Grandmas fan, I did black and white with a little red, etc. Then I post that i will do extra swaps and have them PM me. It's a really good thing to do for you and the other swapper cause you get to do your quilt sooner.
    give it a try and see what happens.
    All the best
    Roberto

    Yes, Judith1005, I received it and its beautiful. I can't post pictures for some reason, wish I could so I could let every one see it. I now have enough for a quilt with flowers and am anxious to get started. Thanks to all over the year for the blocks. Can't wait for February to choose a new theme.
