    Wow! I've been missing posts! I know I'm subscribed, but haven't been online here for a while due to trying to get quilts done for other people. I'll be glad to get this done so I can start my quilt partner's quilt. The creative wheels are a turnin'! Hope you all have fun creating your quilts!

    WOW! All these folks getting started, and one quilt top DONE? (Actually, make that two, the top of the quilt I'm making my partner is, I think, done as well.)

    As for those of you not yet started: don't panic. We scheduled this swap specifically so that people could wrap up their holiday project work first. Some of us are just over-achievers.

    I can't wait for pictures to start getting posted...

    I'm usually quick with my swaps, but I definitely need to finish some other things first....I'm nashing at the teeth to get started on this though!

    Hi foxflower, I'm here snooping around and here you are. I'm working on my block swap and my partners lap quilt at the same time. Just could not wait to get started. My 1 block is going great and it will be done tomorrow I hope then I will start her second one. Pretty skinny on the fabrics she sent so it's tight. At least this first one is 9" and is coming out very pretty and the second one maybe 6" I hope. Then on to more of the lap quilt, such a pretty little thing. I know I cannot get attached to it and I'm trying hard.
    Well it's late and have to get going here now so I will say good night to all.
    HUGS!! everyone.

    We have a Canadian who'd like to join the swap and is seeking another Canadian with whom to partner. All current Canadian participants are partnered. So I'm putting out a call for another Canadian to join the swap. If any of you know a quilter north of the border who might like to participate, please send them in this direction. Thanks! -- Jillaine

    Lindy,
    Thanks! That's incredibly generous of you. I've let her know; I'm awaiting her "application."

    Hello again FF, I finished DH quilt today.Binding it all on the sewing machine. I rounded off the corners and had it finished in no time at all. No biased corners this time. Really fast. Of coarse it's already on the bed. He loved it.
    Sure makes you feel great to get something finished. The size ended up being 90X108 I'll post pics on Flickr later on.
    Looks really nice with the rounded corners.

    Hello Jillaine, how do I post pictures on the new board? I'm still struggling finding the "how to" here. I don't venture out from the emailed pages sent me every day because it takes too long and I don't find what I'm looking for. At first I spent hours trying to figure it out, but too frustrating to me after awhile so I just read what comes up from my emails. I think there are a more members like me here.
    Thanks for any information you send me and I will try the pic. thing once again.
    PS on the old board I posted many, many pics.and read all threads and tutorials, it was fun. Today I still have not read any tutorials, oh I find the tuts. page of the tuts. but have never been able to open them to enjoy them once again.

    Change the biased corners to Mitered instead. I knew there was something wrong with "Biased" My head was playing tricks on me

    Question for you gals, do you know of a good setting block that will help make my swap blocks fit together. The swap blocks were from the Boom 5 swap. They are lovely blocks, used one main color, but they do not work well together. They just yell at one another. I want them to play nice so thought maybe if I put in a block the same inbetween all of them, they would work well. I know I can put a solid in, but wanted it to have more movement than that. It is for my BIL.

    Snowballs work well for alternate blocks and provide nice lattice/on-point like movement. It really depends on what type of block the other one is. A pic would help!

    Okay folks. One more week to go before this swap closes, and I'm calling out for your assistance in finding at least ONE more person. We have an "odd girl out" situation-- i.e., an odd number of participants. I'm hoping to find a partner for a woman who'd love to have made for her a modern quilt design, especially if the fabric has cats on it! ;-)
    In exchange she'll make for her swap partner pretty much any type of quilt design (except applique) from her very varied stash (and she's even willing to purchase fabric!). So please reach out to your quilting buddies and see if you can help us find one more person.

    The swap remains open to any newcomers until December 15th. I just hope we always maintain an even number!

    Enjoy!

    Another update:

    This new board software has something called Groups. They're starting to be used for swaps. Expect an invitation in your PM inbox. We'll be guinea pigs together! Thanks. -- Jillaine

    Jillaine, if no one is found, I can do another swap with her. I do not mind. I have done some nice modern quilts. Let me know.

    Also, thanks for pairing me up with Jillnjo. She is a great gal and I am going to have doing hers. Funny, I have it all figured out already, just have to finish a couple others before Christmas and then will get hers done. I am excited.

    That is my wee dogs' name. He was found abandoned on the freeway at 8 weeks old. I work at a dogs home and took him in to foster him...and 6 years later he is still here..:-) He is the lovely wee thing in my avatar..

    Cheer,
