    Are you floating around in a sea of red, white and blue? Has everyone got their blocks in to you yet?

    Are they there yet....HUH?? HUH?? HUH??? (You know, it's not like I'm anxious to see them or anything like that.)
    I've decided to use mine for a raffle quilt for my local ECA (Extention Community Association) Club. We're a non-profit charity club (what used to be called Home Extention). I just know this is going to be a gorgeous quilt. And after all of our national catastrophies of late, I think patriotic will work perfectly for a raffle. SO....ladies, get off the pot and get all those beautiful blocks sent in!!! Your country is calling to you!

    Hahahahaha Libster. Hold your horses. They will come. By the way mine are in. The worst that can happen is if they come when I am on vacation and I will not see them till I come home. I might need to get my adult DD to take pictures and send them to me. She said she was doing some quilting when at the house. Maybe I will have a completed top when I get back,. Now wouldn't that be nice?

    Best wishes with your raffle quilt.

    That would be a dream come true!! When that quilt fairy godmother finishes at your house, pul-leez send her on my way. I would be forever in your debt. (I can dream big, can't I?)

    Just curious what is the status of the blocks being sent out? Haven't heard anything in awhile.

    I know it is not an easy task and appreciate all you do Mariposa.

    Oh, Ladies!!! My blocks came today. I am so excited! I humbly bow before each lady and/or gentleman who participated in this swap. I love every single block that I got back. Never doubt just how talented you all are. This quilt is going to raise lots of money for charity. Each of you did such an outstanding job on your blocks. I love all of them, but I think my favorite is the "found fabric" appliqued USA. But then, there's the Uncle Sam and the..... Just wait until you get your packages, you'll see what I mean! The USA will be the centerpiece for my quilt. Thank all of you so much for swapping with me.
    Mariposa, you are the perfect hostess. Thank you so much for the thought, inspiration and the time you've put into this swap. You absolutely made it happen!! I can't wait to see what you have for us next.

    Do be watching your mail boxes! All packages were mailed, and on their way! Hopefully, no one got a duplicate block.
    Such a great variety of blocks too~

    Thanks to all 19 who played!

    Got home from a rough day at work to a beautiful package of blocks. Thank you ladies who made them. I look forward to putting them in a quilt for my nephew who is serving right now in Afghanstan.

    Thank you for hosting Mariposa.
