    I am "lurking" here. I know I have lots of patterns for this swap on hand and not to mention lots of scraps as well. Will keep 'subscribing' to this thread.

    I'm going to try & do this. I just started paper piecing in early Dec, but have been visiting my DD & DSIL in Maryland since 12/19 & couldn't bring much with me. I've been reading a lot of tutorials online & purchased several books on paper piecing. I've located a number of blocks that will definitely work for the miniature block swap. I'll be going home to Texas on 1/26 so can get back to sewing & complete the blocks before the deadline. How do we sign up once my blocks are completed?

    It will be hard to leave the new granddaughter, Cora Faye. She is adorable! I look forward to making her a new quilt every year too.

    So glad to have you join in the fun! When you're ready to sign up officially, just pm me, but I'll keep an eye on this thread as well. Congratulations on your new granddaughter! Babies are so precious aren't they?

    Okay, here is my first offical set of blocks to swap. They are 3 1/2" and the pattern is "Churn Dash". An appropriate pattern I thought for Home Sweet Home...who doesn't like the oldies but goodies patterns? Hope you like them.

    I am a PPing junky....and would LOVE to join as I also LOVE mini's...but in PPing, especially this small, you really need to leave the paper on to keep it all secure! I used to own a miniature paper piecing group and one time we swapped with maker's choice and it was a nightmare! The blocks don't travel well and they easily pull apart when trying to put them together into anything. Even with stay stitching the outer edge. They really need to have the paper left on!

    another site for free patterns is paperpanache, but they are pretty complicated!

    Jacquie, welcome, welcome!!! I believe you and I were in the Farmer's Wife Swap together? I paper pieced all those blocks and could also be termed a "PPing junky"! I think most of us will naturally send blocks with paper on as it's easier! I haven't had a bad experience with papers off as you have had. I've made a note by your name in case I get any blocks without papers on and others can read your post and have some good information. Thank you for sharing!

    By the way, does anyone have pictures of what you might be working on? Just curious...not trying to push!

    Okay, here is set #2 for me. I chose to make scrappy 3 1/2" Pineapple blocks. There are 29 different fabrics in each block (okay, perhaps I am a little obbsesive compulsive). My remaining sets will be much calmer for sure. LOL! For some reason, the colors show a bit duller than they really are. Hmmm.
