    Nice Dotty! I certainly have lots of selvages saved.

    Nancia- I think I read that you're going to TX. We were there Feb and March....first Galveston, then Padre Island...people are very friendly. Also, we went to San Antonio 9 years ago for youngest sons graduation (Air Force).
    Anyway, have a good trip and lots of fun.

    The swap requires you to make and ship a wall hanging to your partner.

    cherrio you make great blocks as i have seen your work in the boomerang swaps. it's similar in concept but you will be making it sewing themed this time. i remember in one of the boom swaps one person sent out sewing themed fabric and wanted sewing themed, embellished blocks back. i'm not sure if you were in my group then. so come play with us. stretch or increase your quilting skill set in a fun atmosphere.
