    Mariposa, no actual photo yet, just my brain picture!Kind of like an "Around the world" but with mini blocks. Say a 12 square block has lights running from corner to corner at an angle and darks on the opposite corners. Then reverse for the next block. Not sure how to explain. I'll find a photo or draw something one day.

    Love the quilts to be finished.. Right now I am planning a postage stamp quilt with random square picking.. After this one, will probably create a pattern..
    I love having the little squares around.
    Since my mom was in the hospital for a couple of days, I have been hand stitching little squares while hanging out with her.. I am so glad she is out of the hospital, and I am back to using the machine.. I don't know how they did it when machines were not available.. I guess they didn't all have ADD.. I will have to wait to sew the squares until I finish two projects I am in the middle of..

    Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers. I'm feeling a little better, but still sleeping alot. DH toted me to the PO yesterday. The little stamps are on their flying to the sorting station. LOL They said they would be there Monday.
    Hope everyone is doing okay and as excited about this swap as I am.
    I do want everyone to know I am NOT contagious, so don't be afraid of my little PSs!

    Glad you are feeling better.

    Anyone afraid of contagion? I've got a remedy. Send your squares this way and I'll nurse them back to health. It may take years for them to get better and they may get lost in the stash, but hey...I'm just trying to protect ya'll.

    Djmat, your quilt is amazing. I hope you don't mind I posted a link to here in my 2.5" Candy swap thread. I love showing my swappers the sewing possibilities!

    Sher, I don't mind you showing the 2.5" group.
    I swapped 1200 2"ers in a recent swap so that should be enough to finish the outside. Will post in the picture forum when I get it sandwiched and again with the final results.
    In a quandry of how to QTQ, any suggestions, bare in mind I'm new at QTQ & cannot really afford a longarmer right now with fall tuition planning for DD. SITD is an option, but that's a lot of little charms, ugh!

    Yup.. I am getting way excited to think that I will have more squares, and no time to work on them.. I have to give you, and Sheri a lot of credit for taking on these tasks.. Imagine if life didn't get in the way of our quilting..

    Whoopee! Am just finishing the binding on my latest quilt, so those little squares will arrive just in time. I'll sort them out while I think of what project to work on next.

    Yup my squishy was suished into my mail box when I got home. I didn't expect it today. I nearly had to take a scissor to rescue it.. Mail boxes in apartment buildings aren't meant to handle suishies. Ughh.. I was more than thrilled to get the packages. The fabrics were beautiful.. I can't wait to play with them..

    This is my first charm swap on QB. No hurry, mine are for a future project, but is a month past deadline the normal time to receive a swap on QB, just curious?
