    Hi Everyone, So far I have packages from Sewnclog, Macybaby, and Jordan, QB's package is on the way. One more to go before the swapping starts.


    I see that there is a Double Irish Chain quiltalong in process.. I may be joining as I have a lot of 2.5" pieces waiting to be a part of a quilt. I did start a single Irish chain from one of the previous swaps.. I think I have 3 nine block sections done on that one.

    Hope to see some of you in the future or as part of another group.

    QB, Great job on your pretty quilts..I especially love the many different blocks in the one quilt.

    Have a good day all. H.

    Thanks honchey. I had extra blocks from previous quilts and I had started a crumb quilt. I decided to put it all together to get rid of blocks laying around.

    Yes, Honchey, I am watching the Double Irish Chain quiltalong and enjoying it so much. I have to just be a lurker right now until I finish a few other projects but want to do this pattern too. So many projects and so little time!!

    Anxious to get my swap blocks. I enjoy seeing all the fabrics in the blocks from across the country. Thank you again for hosting. It was fun

    Hi Swappers, After a very hectic several days the baggies will be on their way today. Sorry it has taken this long. I was called into work for 3 days this week, Had a flood in the bathroom from the storm that passed over us from a fan vent. Couldn't find the 3 sets of blocks I made. I think they will show up in NC where I probably left them.. If not I think my cat ate them.


    I'll be following the Irish chain sewalong… I really enjoy sewing 9 patch blocks. I'm still sewing the 2 color 9 patch blocks that Sewbiz hosted and will probably put together a "Niners" top.. My friend in NC told me that I was the first person that made quilt "tops".

    Have a good day all. H.

    The baggies are on their way to their respective homes.. I'm going to pm the tracking..

    Some of you got doubles because It couldn't be done any other way.. I don't believe any were of your own.

    I want to thank all of you for participating and for the lovely hostess gifts. They are appreciated.

    Please feel free to post any progress and pics of that progress.. It's so nice to see what everyone is doing.


    Have a good one all of you! H.

    I received my baggies yesterday. Lovely blocks ladies. I will be posting feedback here shortly. I already started assembling my blocks. I am making checkered board type quilt. Last night I got a 36.5" x 36.5" piece done. Thanks again for the lovely blocks

    I received my blocks last night. Haven't had a chance to open them as I have all 5 grandchildren here with me for a week and we are keeping pretty busy. Hope to look at them soon. It should be fun. Thanks again Honchey for this great swap.

    Today I put to use some of my 'scrappy and white' 9P blocks from a couple of swaps back. I made up some 6.5" rail fence blocks to alternate with them and set all on point. Hope some of you can find you blocks!

    SWB I actually made it bigger. It's 72"x76". I got it sandwiched, quilted and bound tonight. I wanted to do a checkered board quilt. Now it's off my bucket list of quilts to make. Here's the picture of it.Name:  100_0781.JPG

    Love both of them! I am looking forward to completing what I've got on my plate so I can start playing again. Have a family reunion in July and need to finish up three quilts and then bind them along with about 10 that are quilted and waiting to be bound.
