    Raise the bar high, why don'tcha, ladies! LOL Can you say "intimidation"? HA - I can say, "determination", OK?
    I will be learning things. (A bit nervous about making the blocks exact size: I think I can, I think I can!)

    I looooove the blocks pictured. Red, I love the starfish, Judith, your blocks are amazing, & djmat, nice, I'm going to start too.

    Great job djmat. You have a great variety going on. They are looking great!!

    I am still working on what my last set will be and what fabrics to use. I need to buckle down and get them done.

    K-roll, simple blocks work great also. Like 9 patches, 4 patches, snowballs.....

    Happy New Year everyone. I hope that now that the new year is here, maybe we will have a few more people join us. This is looking like it will be a fun quilt to make.

    Great fun blocks djmat!

    Thanks kroll, I try and have fun with it. I usually make mine a little on the large side by an eighth and square/trim them up to the size I am making. That way I know they are right on.

    I have a simple fourth of july fabric set finished and am working on the last fishy set now. I hope everyone had a safe and nice New Years Eve. Mine was at home with hubby asleep early this year. We were both tired and ready to just settle in.

    Happy New Year everyone.

    Yay! I did it! The fourth is a 12 1/2" square and the other fishy is a 9 1/2".

    Thank you djmat! Your so sweet. I am hoping more swappers come in and show and tell their blocks with us. Maybe we could invite some of our buddies to join in the fun.

    Hi owlvamp. Joining the swap?

    I have been out with a miserable cold. Hubby brought it home and I took care of him until I got it myself and had to go to bed. Don't worry, I finished the blocks before I got this yucky thing. I will spray inside the locked envelope some lysol just in case though girls.

    I put mine away due to a cold coming on, plenty of time to finish later. Wishing all good health. We expect ice later in the week with possible power outages, could use some prayers.

    I am truly sorry to hear it, dj. I hope you don't have what we do. It sure is miserable.

    Hi, I love this! I think I would add a plain border surrounded by a 'piano key' border of a mixture of colours to compliment the inner blocks followed by a favourite darker coloured border... Great selection! Hugs!! xxx

    I'm kind of flustered that it is still not completely finished. It needs a border and I still haven't quite figured that out.

    Jacquie, thanks for the suggestions. I still have not worked on finishing that quilt yet. But, I will. I just love the blocks everyone sent in.

    Red, I love your R*W*B blocks and the whale blocks. They are awesome!!

    I hope everyone is starting to feel better.

    I thankfully, have not been sick. But, I have had to do more and more paperwork for my husbands business. You know how it is getting ready for tax time....So, not the most fun thing to do. But, it's almost finished and then it will be off to the accountants office, and then filed. And will not have to look at it again for another year.

    I have had the cold/flu for a third time now. Definitely tired of that.
    My embroidery machine is having its issues again so not getting to making my blocks yet.
    Love the quilt Judith, that is really nice. I have a few of those blocks as well. Makes me want to take them out and see how many more I need to get it finished. That way I can swap just the amount needed to finish.

    It is still cold, but at least the sun is shining today.

    That is right! We are looking forward to seeing all of the great blocks you will trade with us lovngrandma! Join in the fun!

    I am sorry you are still sick Quiltermomma. I am almost over it. What a horrible cold it has been. As soon as the sun goes down you are really symptomatic. Fever, cough and no energy to fight it.

    We have had your weather the next day. Rain, snow ... Rain snow. Tomorrow it is supposed to really slam us with a snow storm. I guess I am sewing and staying in, for sure!
