    You have to be able to learn new ways or you just sit there while others go around you and have fun. I am so happy I can now use my photobucket pictures now.

    I know which blocks I am going to do and have a list of all the supplies I need, and the time schedule needed to do the blocks. Think I will go out in a little bit and get the fabric I need. Can you tell I am a little excited.

    Have a great weekend.

    Are we all here now? I've reduced the contents of my message boxes, so i should be able to receive PMs now.
    Sewnmom, welcome. I'm out of town right now (the very week they make the change to the new board software!) but I'll resume making matches in a few days when I'm home.

    Wow.. I have not been on for awhile and it is so exciting to see so many new quilters wanting to join this swap
    What a brilliant idea Jillaine had............and thank you for taking this and all of us on
    Jillaine be sure to update the map, sounds like alot of new sign ups. Hopefully by the time the "finish" deadline comes around I will be able to post pictures. I for one would love to see what everyone gets !!!.
    I have chatted a little with my partner and looking forward to exchanging more info with her in the future. Happy quilting everyone

    I really like the map. I hope by the time everyone signs up you can update it. This is lots of fun. I can't wait to see all the quilts posted. A long time to go but I love having time to plan and complete the quilt for my partner.

    I'm really glad to be part of this swap! I can't wait to find out who my partner is & get to know her through here. I'm really glad the quilts don't have to be done until July! Gives me time to get my holiday stuff done before I focus on something new. I hope you all have a fabulously wonderful time creating your treasures! Won't it be fun to receive a quilt made just for you?

    Yes, i will update the map. I was out of town for over a week and am still catching up. IMPORTANT: The swap remains open to new participants until 15 December 2011. You have until 1 July 2012 to complete the quilt for your partner. For those of you who have not been "matched" yet, please be patient. I have some catching up to do. ALSO: If you are participating, please "subscribe" to this thread as it will be the primary way for me to communicate with all participants.

    oh one more thing: we are now up to 41 (that's FORTY-ONE!) participants. So we need at least one more. (We always need an even number.) Can you believe it?!! FORTY ONE QUILTS FOR QUILTERS. I'm so excited!!!

    Folks, I've posted conflicting information about the due date. The correct date is as recorded in the opening topic. Completed quilts are due to your partners by the FIRST of July 2012. Apologies for any confusion. -- Jillaine

    Wow! 40+ swappers! Exciting!
    I wanted to make a few suggestions..Once the sign up date is here, a list of those participating should be posted,on a new thread maybe? Updates from swappers mandatory also. Shipping confirmation numbers are a must!
    I found the pattern i am going to use a few days ago..now thinking on fabrics! yippee!
    There are soooo many patterns and ideas on line that are free...!

    Kim,

    Yes, once 15 December has passed and all participants are partnered, I will post a list. (Normally this would be on the Swap Project page, but that functionality does not appear to have transferred over to the new site.) In the meantime, we will continue to use THIS topic for updates, including sharing our work. I hesitate to create a new topic because, well, it's just not so easy to find topics on this new site. So again, please "subscribe" to this topic if you're participating.

    I will also update the map on December 15.

    I still have a few more people to match (from the current sign-ups), and we're still at an odd number, so we need at least one more. If you know someone who might be interested, please send them this way!

    I wonder who the first person will be to post a photo of their quilt4quilter project! ;-)
    (Don't do it if your partner wants to be surprised!!!)

    Received my partner's name this morning. I sent her a private message so we could get to know each other and talk about what we would like in our quilts. I think I already have the pattern figured out, just want to see if she has any color preferences. This is so exciting!

    How do you subscribe to a topic?
    I know one of those dumb questions but I do not see where to click or anything.

    You are probably already subscribed since you replied to the thread. However, to subsribe to a post (or to bookmark it) head on up to the top of the page. Click on Thread Tools and choose subscribe to thread. It will pull up a new window. Choose how often you want your notifications and whether you want to be subscribed to the thread or just bookmark it. Click the save changes or whatever-it-called save button at the bottom of that window. You can check your subscriptions, change them, etc. by going to Settings at the top right of the page next to the greeting. Find the subjects on the left of the page choose subscriptions if that's what you want to manage or general settings. Most of what you'll want to do on the board in terms of your personal account is going to managed through the Settings tab. Explore it, you may be amazed at what you find.
