    island wiz~ each packet is individual. You can use your scraps, etc. So, no they do not have to be the same!

    I've been doing some mindless sewing while I contemplate finishing the quilting on a birthday quilt and now have 85 PS blocks, enough for a good size lap quilt. But, I think I'll continue making blocks for a larger quilt. Or maybe just keep on collecting stamps because they are so cute!

    Mariposa, how many have signed up so far? September seems so far away!

    Sounds like we have a good group. Your name isn't on the list, but I assume you're playing? What happens if we don't get 30 swappers?

    I wonder how we can advertise, or have more people read about our swap..
    I just was looking at the table showing how many squares you need for what size quilt.. Thanks Havplenty.. You made my day, or not... I still have a ton more to go.. but having a lot of fun.. For those that got my baggies in the last swap, I hope they were okay.. For those that are getting my baggies in this one, they will be different from my last.. Hit a garage sale with scraps..

    I received from you in the last swap - no worries - great stuff! I have tried not to duplicate anything I used in the spring swap for the summer swap, so if you swapped with me in the spring, you should not have to worry about getting the same stuff in the summer swap.

    I, for one, don't care if I do get duplicates. My blocks have two, three, four of a kind (sometimes times two) and they still look good! Bring 'em on, ladies. I like them all!

    Got my 30 sets cut and placed into baggies (placed a couple extra squares in each one just in case ) labels printed and placed on baggies. Now only if the postman would bring me those darn padded envelopes! My post office does not carry them so ordered them for free to be delivered to the house said it takes 7 days so hopefully early this week sometime

    Sue.. Welcome.. I think you will really enjoy this group, and get hooked.. It's very addicting, but it has a great bunch of people.. If only I would get off the computer, and finish bagging my squares..
