I just up sign for this swap. I was in the first two swaps and took some time off from quilting and the board when I had my baby girl. I made a few baby quilts for friends and knitted a few scarfs since then. I have missed quilting and catching up with quilting friends. I look forward to this swap and getting back to quilting.

I'm going to check if I have enough different fabrics than last year before I sign up for this year. I didn't buy much new fabric last year. I loved the comradery of the group for a whole year!

Hi ahwu! Welcome back!

NZQuilter, it does take quite a bit of fabrics to make 50 new each year. Hope you find them! I had tons of scraps and 2.5" strips that I am cutting up. Don't know if I could do this every year, tho.

Since you have been in previous swaps, PM your info to me.

WMUTeach, I sent a PM.

Hi sewbizgirl! I remember your Arkansas Crossroads quilt from a few swaps back. Such a beautiful example of what can be made with these little squares!

I haven't swapped, sewed, quilted, anything for about a year. Trying to get back to it all and very happy to be in this swap. I'll start cutting squares later today.

Thank you! My husband's uncle has that quilt now. He wanted one of my quilts, and I let him choose from what I had. Isn't it funny that a man would choose such a bright quilt? https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images/smilies/tongue.png

As of this afternoon we have ten members in the new swap that starts in March 2021. Plenty of room for more and plenty of time to make a decision. https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images/smilies/wink.png

I have been so crazy I didn't even see this get posted! I am signing up again. Not sure where I will be this year for my birthday, but I always bring my prepared cards so can send wherever I am.
Thanks for keeping this going - the work you do is appreciated.
