    Here is the quilt I am making

    It is Kona black with batik stars and a narrow purple border. The back and binding will be purple too and the batting is warm and natural. It is not basted yet but I stacked all the layers together for the picture. I will not have it quilted till end June as one of my daughters is getting married.

    I love Hawaiian prints! That is so sweet of Cindy. Does she like my top?

    "I have a quilt top done and ready to be quilted. I will be able to do this the first week in June. I have house guests right now... Feel free to post the photo of my quilt to the group so that the gal who is missing a quilt knows that she will receive one. My top is made from my Hawaiian fabric stash."

    What do you think AnnaQuilts? Want it?

    Beautiful quilts...each one is so unique and I know how much caring went into making each one. Quilter momma is right..it is a joy to share part of yourself with someone else who really appreciates the quilt.

    Hello all, just reading the posts and have been busy with the lap quilt for my partner. I sent a PM to my partner yesterday telling her the next thing on her lap quilt is putting it on my LA and getting that finished. Then the binding will be ready to finish it off. I can hardly wait to see all the gorgeous quilts.

    my partner has been MIA as well. I did PM her about my concerns, as I am having foot surgery and with all the pain of trying to sit and sew, I am afraid her quilt is not getting far either! I have however convinced my DH that he can help IF my partner still wants to play.

    I wish I would of kept up with this forum! My partner and I agreed to keep our quilts a surprise. I just redid her border the first one I did was just to much for the quilt, because the quilt itself is pretty 'active'. I wish I could post a photograph but I don't want to spoil the surprise for her. I hope it is what she wants, I have worked really hard on this. I just have to now start getting it sandwiched and then quilted. I am not good at machine quilt and even worse with the handquilting because of my hands. But unfortunately I cannot afford a professional longarm quilter. and I do honestly believe my partner will love it because I made it just for her. If not she can lie to me HEHEHE . anyways I have truly enjoyed looking at everyone's photographs and wow! This was definitely an awesome idea, and I am glad to see that no quilter will be left behind in this swap. Now I am going to say I am so excited to get a quilt that is made just for me, I have ALWAYS wanted someone to make me a quilt. I have some doll quilts, which are wicked cute, but this I am so incredibly excited about!!! OK enough rambling..

    I am just finishing up the quilting on the borders of vanogay's quilt. I might post a sneak peak so she knows it's almost finished. I too have enjoyed making a 'special' quilt for another quilter - this has been a really good swap to be a part of. Thanks jillaine.

I would love the quilt to go to some one that loves the quilt. I am very open to finnishing a little later too so you can have a break and I will have extra time to finnish the quilting if need be. Jillaine just let me know what you want me to do. It also sounds like some one else might need another partner, Jacquie.

    Lynnie that quilting and quilt look wonderful! Great job.
    Hand quilted quilts have a special soft drapey feel. I am sure your swap partner will appreciate.

    Would it be possible to post all the pictures at the end. I love this thread. Love the pictures. How nice of you to make quilts to exchange. I could not participate as I have never finished a quilt for myself.

    Jacquie,

    I heard from your partner on 29 April at which point she told me she was about to sandwich and quilt. So don't give up on her just yet. There are a number of people who signed up for the swap, but who have not been as active on the board since the switch to the new system or because they've got issues going on at home, but who have communicated to me that they're still working on their partner's quilt. That said, if anyone else feels like their partner is MIA, let me know.

    -- Jillaine
    p.s. I heard from Gwyn/Mamasani: Sunbonnet Sue arrived safe and sound, she loves it and the quilt now has a place of prominence on her living room rocking chair. I'm hoping to receive a photo of it and Gwyn.

    I love the depth of it. If ok with Jillian's I am up for it. Your quilt will be done on time. It fits in with my agenda just fine. Whigrose and Tammoos will bedone this week. Including binding have to make labels yet.

    Sneak Preview

    Oooh, Lynnie25, that's looking pretty wonderful. I know just the place for it. As a matter of fact, I just took another quilt down from the hanging rack I'm thinking of and I will FOR SURE reserve that place for my new one. I'm going to put yours into the mail on Tuesday some time, so will be posting a picture for the world - however, if you choose to ignore that post, it'll be okay!!! Do let me know when it arrives. I think the last time we posted something it took about 10 days. Speaking of those quilt tops, they are sandwiched and ready to quilt, but with my surgery, I haven't been able to stand and get that done. I do need to work on them though - with pictures of them, as well to follow. To everyone on the board, have a wonderful Memorial Day and to other veterans out there - thanks.

    I am beside myself with giddiness for being almost done-done on QuilterMomma's quilt. She and I were just discussing bindings, labels and hanging sleeves. I have two of three under control and the label will be last.

    When dh picked the quilt up from the LA, I was mulling over 'What did you learn from this experience deb?" I realized several things and it got me to wondering if maybe we should have a 'lessons learned and how we grew from this swap' exchange. Anyone interested?

    best,
    d (who is going back to finish the hanging sleeve now so she can get the rest of the binding attached)

    Oh my!!!! QuilterMomma just sent me a sneak peek of the quilt she is doing for me and it is so gorgeous!!! It won't be long now folks - there is going to be another completed swap.

    I was telling her only today did I realize the new bed quilt and pillow shams I picked up for the summer are stark white. The quilt she is doing for me is a 30's print Log Cabin. What a match!

    Anyone getting a quilt from her is one very lucky person. Her quilting is magnificent!

    Doing the happy dance. Doing the happy dance. Ooooeee, so excited.

    I have the bindig on her quilt 50+% completed. Finish that, sew down the hanging sleeve and create a label. Then I'll stand back for a day or two to admire the &^%$ out of it then ship it out to her (after I take a gazillion photos).

    Pretty soon you'll hear squealing from both coast lines.

    best,

    Lindy-2,

    Nurse Bonnie reported on 4/27 that she is 90% complete with your quilt. I will PM you her email address so you can contact her directly.

    Vicky_K is definitely MIA. She has not responded to my efforts to reach her-- either via PM or email.

    Whew, I am relieved, from the sounds of my quilt coming, I may have met the same. I love how it looks. If I had used a solid fabric on back, would see a wholecloth quilt for sure. Have to do that binding and label and ready to mail. Hey maybe this Friday we can mail so we can tap foot by mailboxes.

    Decided to add some extra work on Tammoos, so it is going to take me a couple more days to finish that top, but looking good. Excited to see it come together.

    Then I get to do one for Annaquilts. Love that star quilt. Now, which one for sure. I have a good idea of which one will work best, now to get on it. That will be Monday for sure. Have to look at it for a couple of days to decide then away I will go. Having so much fun here. Sold my second machine so no more sewing at office, just the hand work. Now that hand is healing, I have to behave not to overdo it yet. Good thing these quilts were cut up already.

    We are making plans for mailing to each other for later this week. How exciting is that?
