    What a thoughtful DQ from Debbyg. They are all little gems. Such unique styles and creative people here. I look forward to looking every night and seeing what came in each day!

    wall hanging for June

    1 of my partners hasn't posted what I sent her but delivery confirmation says it was delivered. I'd love all of you to see it so this is what I sent to argentium for the red, white and blue. I hope she liked it, I haven't received mine yet but hopefully she will mail soon.Name:  DSCF1409.JPG

    Jaba, that is outstanding. I love the liberty bell center. I'm so sorry you haven't heard from your partner. I sent her a PM and see that she is logging onto the board so chalk another one up to incredible rudeness.

    Jaba, your quilt is wonderful! Thanks for sharing. I had Argentium as a partner in May...she is very busy with school, etc. and was a little late but sent an exquisite quilt to me so I have no doubt you will receive the same.

    Perhaps, but deadlines are deadlines. When we don't think we can fulfill our obligations, sometimes it's best not to sign up.

    The Hostess gives you your deadline before you sign up. I totally agree that if you know your schedule is going to be busier than normal don't sign up. And if something unexpected happens, notify the hostess and your partner letting them know what is going on.

    I will be making a trip to the quilt store tomorrow for the background fabric for this months quilt. What I have is just a little too dark for what I need. And the one I have that is light enough is not big enough. UGH.

    Ok I am one who sent out late so shoot me. I have been doing this swaqp for 18 months and this is the first time I have ever been late. yes life does get in the way sometimes and my granddaughter is why I was late she will be having surgery Tuesday and in Aug we will find out if it was a success when she lets us know she can hear us for the first time. with that said I will sign off and most likely not do the swap anymore!

    Jaba...sweet quilt! The bell and the loyalty, duty, honor fabric are great together.

    Mooretil, I think everyone understands that occasionally--and once in 18 months is occasionally--life intervenes and certainly family comes first. I think that communication is the key when this happens. A PM to the swap partner letting her know you are unexpectedly overwhelmed and the DQ will be a bit late is the key. Making sure to acknowledge the DQ you receive when you get it is also key. If you communicate with your partner you will get a lot of support from the people on this exchange. I'll be praying for a wonderful outcome for your granddaughter.

    I received my lovely quilt from dabber312 yesterday. It's a beauty. I'll have pictures posted before the day is out. (Battery charging) I really admire the binding. I have a time doing bindings. In fact I have several unfinished projects that just need bindings but I dislike binding so much they remain unfinished. Dabber312's binding ability is perfect. The binding is even, stitches aren't showing and it's straight. Sorry I didn't post yesterday. I've just been looking at the quilt and admiring her skills.

    Debbie, it wasn't you. You have been here and plodding along through thick and thin. And if someone sends you a PM, you always answer right away. There is another person who has sent out late consistently and does not respond to PMs although she is on the board regularly.

    I've tried posting a picture three different times now. I don't know what's happening with this blanket-blank computer today! I WILL keep trying - Sistahdebbra sent me a wonderful RWB quilt for june called "Sweet Liberty" and it has lots of hand work on it which I love. Goodies came with it to keep me humble, haha. (She knows I need help in the small even stitching area so she sent me some tiger tape amont other stuff, a flag, a Jean-a-ma-Jig for hemming DH's pants up to 26.5" inseam, and some needle pullers to save my fingernails). I'll post this first so I don't forget and I will try again to post a picture.

    BertieD, I use the Jean-a-ma-Jig to lift my machine foot up and over humps to avoid jagged stitching lines. I don't hem pants for me or hubby - lol. And I'm glad you like it, I enjoyed doing it. My BIL tried to steal it so I'm making something similar for him for next year.

    Here's the beautiful quilt dabber312 sent. Look at that binding! I can only hope one day I'll be able to do it half as good.

    Dabler, really cute quilt. While I love all things Americana, I really enjoy the muted R/W/Bs more. Have really enjoyed seeing all the wonderful versions this month!

    I received my quilt from Cognito and it is gorgeous! She even added buttons for my initials- DO! She also included some goodies: scissors with a beautiful fob and case she made herself, fabric and machine needles. She also sent me a card and a letter. I hope she receives my quilt soon-you can never tell with international mail!

    Thanks again Cognito! You did an amazing job!

    So happy you like it Gaijin! It was my first time ever, believe it or not, to make a string quilt....I have decided I like that process so may do it again some day! Later when I am at my big pooter, I will post pics of the back/label since I know some (like me) love to see those too. I am really excited to receive yours...since we mailed the same day, it will be SOON!
