    GracefulAnn they all look great and I can't wait to see them in person, all the blocks are so much more beautiful in person.

    I am hoping to get one of those mugs with the checked background. I just love that one. I agree, it would be fun to see them all in person. How fun!

    Graceful Ann, hope you kept a snowflake for yourself! Great blocks. I also loved the posted Log Cabins, have never done that type of block. All great thoughts for the future.
    My blocks were mailed yesterday & receipt says delivery by tomorrow, fingers crossed!
    Armylady sent you my tracking number by pm.

    redgarnet I thought you'd hosted swaps before? No? I wish I had more of that checked fabric. It's not homespun and it's a bright cherry red color.

    Great blocks ladies! I'd love a snowflake too GracefulAnn. K-roll I love your star & I miss your snowy owl! I was secretly hoping to get one.

    Yes you are right, I hosted many, many of them here on the board. But, I still like to see them in person. It really does make a big difference. Right?

    I went out looking for just red and striped fabric on line the other day and it was all I could do to find some. I suppose time marches on and tastes change. I love the check too. I have a little left from a while back, but I think it would be pretty easy to find now. That has been in style since last fall. Checks and plaid shirts you see them everywhere in the stores.

    Happy sewing everyone. I can hardly believe that the holidays are soon upon us.

    K-Roll I received your blocks today, what a speedy trip.

    Ladies I am waiting on one more package and then I will begin swapping and get them mailed out as soon as possible. As soon as everyone receives their blocks then I will draw for the extra blocks and get them mailed and then I will post the new swap as soon as I get approval.

    I am thinking of doing a Churn Dash or Spring swap but if I do the churn Dash then I am thinking of adding something else to it not for sure if floral or a color mixture. What do you ladies think?

    I would love a 12 1/2" Churn Dash of one color family in any shades of that color. Any print would suit me, florals, plaids, geometrics, even mixed, as long as they remain in that color family.
    I like doing the sets of 4 blocks.
    Come on, Ladies, what ideas do you have?
    ArmyLady, whatever you decide will be fun!

    Here is a great tutorial for the Churn Dash block, if you decide to go that way - https://www.quiltingboard.com/tutori...al-t73577.html

    Then, a red, white and blue star would be fun.........and then, and then.........you are going to be really busy ArmyLady! LOL

    One day, when I am frayed and strained and drizzle at the end, please someone cut a square and put me in a quilt that I might keep a child comforted.

    OH, it will be so tempting to join if it's a churn dash swap!! My very first quilt block I ever made was a red churn dash, so I have a "soft spot" in my heart for churn dashes!

    Hi ladies bad news the birthday party had to be canceled due to my grandson being sick all night we will do something for him at school on Monday. I have taken pictures of all the blocks so you all can see them all now that I have them I will see how many I can post in one message so I may have to make a few different post. So let get started and all you ladies take care of your eyes while looking at all the beautiful blocks.
