That is a lot for your family. Praying for healing and peace.

Yosemitasa hope all goes well with mom, you and your family are in my prayers. No sewing for the next two days, have to make a few things I"ve committed to, Kissing Canes for St. Pat's and a Bridal set for my BFF's grand daughters wedding.
I may get a block in tomorrow, but this one block is driving me nuts, I've had to rip one seam 3x's to get it straight.

Thanks everyone. Once we got the last updates, I knew it was time to fill y'all in, so if I go MIA for a bit, you understand why! :)

Cindy we will all keep you and your family in our prayers. It is so hard to handle all that let alone a quilt swap also. I am so sorry that your going through this and pray that all goes well for everyone. My hopes is that it you will find the strength to be there for everyone which is tough because I know, all you want to do is sit back and cry too. Its a very hard road your facing ahead of you.

I am done with my top, ok four inches left and then done and will send it to the quilters on the 1st (pay day) and then it should be back and ready to go! yippee!

Hang in there Yosa, you will make it. God's strength to you.

If you have not sent me a status update (I have heard from 15 and still have 15 to hear from) I need to hear from you ASAP!!! This is a requirement for the swap. ***Please don't make me have to keep sending messages every month.***

By the 15th of each month, each person sends me a PM letting me know how far along they are with their quilt for their partner. I suggest that you put a reminder in your calendar with the following text in it, which is what I need to hear from you:

o 100% complete and ready to be shipped!
o 90%: need to finish quilting and binding, then she’s ready for lift-off!
o 75%: sandwiched and about to quilt
o 50%: nearing completion of the top; about to sandwich
o 25%: fabric cut and piecing in progress
o 5-10%: know the design; have most of the fabric; dragging my feet getting started, but I WILL complete and be ready to ship THIS QUILT BY August 1, 2014!

Ok ladies and gents...I need to throw another friendly reminder out there...Make sure you are communicating with your partner. Already starting to hear about partners not communicating. This is not a suggestion, this is a requirement for this swap. If you are not happy with your partner, you need to let me know NOW. DO NOT wait until June, July or August to tell me you have a problem. Go back to the inital post and read all of the requirements.

* I am required to insist that participants send me a monthly PM or email to verify that they are still active in this swap and are working on their promised project. Also, participants must have weekly contact with their partner to verify that they are still active in this swap and are working on each other’s promised project.

These are the guidelines each of you agreed to when you signed up for the swap. Please follow through with your commitments.

Dabbler here is a hint for you on your red and white top and some choices for your backing...red, white on white, red and white or silver and white. Do you have a preference for the backing??

jaba...is that "scrolls" I'm seeing (the red & white)? If so I didn't know it comes in red *squeal*!!! I'm using scrolls in blue for my partner's quilt.
