    There is no time limit. You just need to have a wall hanging made with at least 4 quilt blocks ready by the mailing deadline.

    Well the crowd of participants is turning out to be good. I bet if I look in my UFOs, I got a wall hanging out there that would be great to use for this swap. yes, you will get one of my UFOs since I want to participate. Now, don't everyone step back, they have been nice just go check out the UFO challenge thread which i believe a couple of names visit there. So put me on the list. Love getting two birds with one stone and a reason to finish another UFO.

    Hmmm...still trying to decide what wall hanging I want to make...Just so you'll know Rhonda, that I haven't totally spaced out on this swap!! With ds wedding coming up in 3 weeks, and my lqs "Shop Hop" is 2 weeks after the wedding, I have "volunteered" myself to do so much for both occasions...what was I thinking??!!...LOL...At least it is happy and fun stress!!..said as I am being led off in the straight jacket to the tune of that old song "They're coming to take me away...to the funny farm!!..."
    Regards all,

    There is no time limit. You just need to have a wall hanging made with at least 4 quilt blocks ready by the mailing deadline. You can add anything you like to the 4 quilt blocks. There are no limits other than keeping it wall hanging size and not quilt size.

    My block, it is called California, from the quilters Cache. Only I made it a little different, I appliqued the black squares on. I am going to do a few more embellishments to it when I do the other blocks. This block is 12.5 inches.

    I will pick one out tonight while the embroidery machine is working on daughter's UFO that needs finished before she has my hide. Then I will photo and post for you. Hmmmmm, which one. Since it has to be four blocks, then can't use one that is a full wall hanging pattern so that eliminates the John Flynn one I have cut out and ready. I have several cut out and ready to sew. OCD on cutting out fabric, but I am getting under control.

    Here are some choices that came to mind on what I have to get done. Chose not to do the pineapple block because I just can't get to it mentally. So lets see which one of these I am motivated to do. Have had the cow wallhanging cut up for oh 8 or 9 years, the wedding ring one about the same, the drunkard path about 3 years, and the ladies about 8 or 9 again. Not sure what happened. I just got excited about doing things and then left them.

    Put the name of each one of the quilt idea onto a piece of paper. Then fold the paper up and put it in a bowl.
    Then shake the bowl to mix them up and draw a name. Then this is the quilt you will make. I do this when I cannot
    decide on which quilt or project to do.

    I have my wall hanging designed and the fabric picked out that I am going to use. I will take some pictures of the fabric that I am using today. I have not started yet because I have had my grandkids every weekend. However, I do plan on at least getting my fabric pieces cut out today after the grandkids go home, so that I can sew them together this week.

    I have narrowed it down to two of them. have not worked on them yet, I have five quilts to get quilted, my modern swap quilt and two DQs to quilt and do binding on. So with those first this week to hit my 10 UFOs, will put this on back burner. I will do either the ladies shopping buddy quilt or the cow wall hanging. The other two just seem to be screaming table runners to me instead. I know I have enough cut up for the cow wall hanging and I have enough plaids to finish it up with no worries and I have some warm fun fabric for the ladies in my stash. I just have to embroidery them. So I think I will work on those two in July for my finishes. So off and running we gooooooooooooooooooooo.....................

    Thanks for the suggestion I may have to do this because I am getting down to projects I really don't want to work on.

    They both look like they will make wonderful wall hangings! Can't wait to see which one you end up doing.

    I have ideas running around in my head but haven't really decided yet. I like to do applique but I also like my miniatures. So not sure. I love hearts and I like to applique them. I also have several fabrics for Dresden Kaleidoscopes and I was playing with that the other day. Just not sure yet. I do need to get a focus going so I can start on it tho

    I only saw a couple of your dresden kaleidoscope quilts. That one sounds like it could be interesting. The DQs I made this month had the stack n whack kaleidoscope are the dresden much different?
