    Armylady, I pm'd you with the tracking #. For some reason, it is showing it's delayed. I will go to the Post Office and put in an official inquiry. I sent it, flat rate, 2 day delivery expected May 8th. I will let you know what I find out.

    Okay ladies, what do you think of the blocks with the sashing. I alternated a white on white with a light beige muslin. It is definitely going to be big enough for a couch quilt. I'm going to do each block as a quilt-as-you-go. (a first for me) I know one of the blocks isn't sashed yet. I'm thinking of adding a banner and some applique trees to it. I wasn't sure if I needed to add anything into the seam lines, so I decided to wait until I was completely decide.



    Thank you so much for coming on this crazy summer trip with me. I enjoyed it tremendously and it was definitely a learning experience. Hopefully, the next one will go smoother.

    P.S. I LOVE all the blocks I received!!

    Wow, Judith! I LOVE it!!! It looks very fresh with the sashing between and no so busy. You made each block shine on its own.

    Judith the off white sashing really pulls the whole thing together with a calming influence. Absolutely looking great.

    I finished sashing my last block. Graceful Ann, thank you again for sending me one of your camper blocks as a hostess gift. I saw so many blocks on Pinterest decorated with trees that I just had to give your camper a forest setting. I had so much fun decorating it. It is the final piece of my Summertime quilt.

    I wish I could give you the link for the forest setting. But, when I went back to find it for myself, I had no idea if I saved it or where to find it. So, I just sort of sketched things out for myself. I did have the general idea of what I remembered. I loved taking the trees into the borders. I sometimes do that. How about yall? Do you take any of your extras into the borders?

    Thanks GracefulAnn, It is actual a Postcard. The Snails Trail block is one of my favorites. I miss cut my Summer Swap Block that was the "Art Deco Shells". So, I had to give it different setting triangles. My inspiration was my Avatar. In the opposite side of the triangle (swap block), I'm going to embroider a small turtle. The corner opposite the Palm Tree.

    Woohoo! I received a package in the mail today. I am most surprised at how quickly it has traveled across the ocean to me. What a beautiful bundle of blocks I have received. It is evening now so I will take a pic tomorrow to show you all.

    I have taken a pic of my blocks received. They are just laid out on my bed and not arranged as I need to add my set in with them also.

    I want to thank everyone for their contribution - I love them all - and extra thanks to Judith for helping me to arrange international postage.

    My husband went nuts for the flamingo and the fish on the bottom was a ufo from a few years ago. My youngest suggested the surf boards.
