    I don't have anything right either but would also be willing to help somewhere along in the process....fabric or blocks.

    that is so kind of you to offer. The quilt sounds like it might be a good fit. I like the description of it. Very pretty. Let me know if Jillaine decides to go this way. I'll send a couple dollars and maybe others could too to make this happen.

    Lindy-2, if this works out and you could send me the quilt top unfinished, I'd be willing to get the batting and back on it - then if someone else wants to help with the rest of it, it would be a true guild group project. Let me know.

    I will also donate money to the backing and quilting. It is heartbreaking to know that someone in this group made and sent her quilt and did not receive hers in return. I just don't understand how someone could do this. Hopefully knowing that her quilt will truly be a group effort and out of love, will make the quilt really special to her.

    As for why we lose people in swaps, life happens. It's been my experience with this swap that sometimes life has gotten in the way. What I really don't like, though, is when people don't communicate. I'd MUCH rather see "Hey, life's getting in the way; I can't meet my commitment" than to see thin air.

    AND having said all that, I am AMAZED that despite what life has thrown several participants in this swap, including bypass surgery and family emergencies, they STILL managed to finish a quilt for a stranger.

    AND... if there is anyone else who completed a quilt and her partner disappeared, please let me know. I know there are a couple of you who are in communication with each other about the delays facing you, and that's fine. But if I missed someone... please, let me know. Clearly, as a mini community here, we'll be able to come up with a solution. Thanks again, everyone.

    And I have to post a 4th message, because, isn't my kitty Clio just SO sweet? I love seeing her on the Kaleidoscope king size quilt I'm making for my sibling-in-laws. ;-)

    Here's a link to her FULL size self:

    Lindy-2 is finishing up one of her quilts for our abandoned swapper. I'm going to test out her ability to receive funds thru PayPal and once we've done that I will put out a call for donations to support the effort. Actually I don't know if I'm allowed to do the last part here. I will pm those of you who offered to help. thanks everyone.

    i was thinking that everyone who helps out with the funds or just whans to say hi for the quilt for the swapper with the missing partner might like to send her a short note to say hi and we care. if you whant to send your best wishes to me in a pm and i will compile them all and put it in with the quilt when i send it. so then its more personal from all of us. let me know if thats a good idea.

    Went back and checked on the messages and this is the one I responded to - to you with a note to send along with the quilt wherever it goes on it's next stop. I think we are all confused now!! Oh, well, if you can use it, you have my original message to include with the quilt.

    Well, my understanding was that Lindy-2 was finishing her quilt and sending it on. Since I couldn't help with the finishing, I posted a check to her to day to help with postage.
