    Dodie you can choose a quilt block from one of my links above and then you need to check out my "Block" directions. these are a short cut method I created to make units I call "Blocks" for want of a better name LOL

    AlaskaAlice, I see we are partners again!! What colors are you wanting this month? Any special requests?

    I am still collecting mine to make a couch quilt. This month I would love to see bright (but not neon or "hot" colors).

    Wow! have I had a challenge finding this swap!!! I was sure I had signed up but have spent days trying to find it..Hope I find out how to do it better soon!(find it on the board)
    I have been working on wing blocks but have unsewen this block several times. so I will probably start over.. I am not sure what bright means..can you give me more info..the small blocks I have have been working on are turquoise and spring green. I would love to have a little more input of what would work for your project.
    I really have not decided what to make with mine yet. one of the blocks I got is going to finish probably 11 1/2 or 11 1/4 so I am not sure how to get them to fit together. I saw a reference by Ricky Tims about putting together swap blocks that turned out different sizes but I can not find it
    I have some friendship blocks that were made for my mother about 65-70 years ago and I get them out to look at them thinking about putting them together but they have the same problem. I guess I should post a question and get suggestions on the "board". Hope to hear from you soon!

    Just got dark here so I had to turn on a light love our long spring and summer days..We got lots of snow this week end and Monday and Tuesday so the snowplow just went by our house.

    Turquoise and spring green is perfect!! Will certainly blend with what I have already collected.

    I bet your mother's friendship blocks are beautiful. I love finding those treasures. A few days ago I found a block that my grandmother had done. In the center she had signed her name and embroidered it. Think I will make a pillow from it.

    Here is the link to Rhonda's block that I chose for you. Decided against curves. They still scare me!

    Those are great pieces! Wish I could get pictures posted!!
    I looked at some cameras today at Costco..One of them was nearly 3 thousand dollars. Yikes. There was some for less than $200. but..I just bought food items..I can use the photo booth on the laptop but the pictures are not very good.

    I sent you a block that was HST's and Boston blocks.
    I have been trying to make the wing blocks..sure have a challenge with getting them to match seams, but finally have one that is ok. Ronda's look so nice! I made HST's by an old method of marking lines of sq's and sewing 1/4" on each side of diagonal lines. cutting on the diagonal and sq lines. the bias edges stay more straight when I sew them the old way. When I make wing blocks I am still challenged to get them all the same size and making corners match and the points all look the same. made some little tiny ones and some bigger ones..now I have more blocks and even more scraps. I joined the Doll Quilt Swap and the table mat and runner swap to use up some of the sample blocks and left over blocks.
    I decided to buy a Accuquilt cutter..Hope it will help get pieces cut more accurate and make them quicker to make.
