    Thanks. I didn't realise how much gold I used until I put the blocks side by side. I can switch the second block to a green center (same as what is on the pinwheel), if you think it might tone it down some? I've already made up the pieced corner blocks but haven't finished cutting out the others yet.

    OH, I love this one, where did you get the pattern? I think this would make an awesome wall hanging.

    Belfry, I like it with Gold and red! it is cute just the way you posted it. And I think your blocks are awesome. I really think the best part of doing the swaps is the variety. All the different styles are really great!

    Well I will try to whip out two more sets tomorrow so that I can send 6 sets. All the blocks are so adorable that I want one of each one. LOL. Well you could send me one of each one, I won't complain. What a cute quilt we will all have.

    All of you doing the embroidery blocks........ok...I am hangin gmy head in shame.....I have owned a very expensive Bernina embroidery machine for about 6 years now and I have never used it. When I come back from down under I am going to play with that baby. You all have inspired me.

    Keep going with what you have. They will be plenty mixed up in all of our quilts.

    Ahem...purchased mine in 2004 and didn't open the embroidery box until July! Yes 3 months ago!!!! SheriR shamed me into it and I haven't turned back since. So shame on you...and let's get playing with that thing. We'll provide all the hand holding that you need.

    I have a Viking Designer I that uses floppy disks. Does anyone even know what floppy disks are anymore? I found an external floppy drive for less than $20. I also picked up a used Designer II last year that uses a card reader. Both the card reader and external floppy drive connect via USB to my computer.

    I said all that to say...the technology is older but you can find them for great deals. They use the same designs that are found everywhere and stitch beautifully in my opinion. And that's the story that I tell myself as a reminder that I do not need to upgrade! He he.

    If I've counted correctly we have 37 swappers currently, which should give us tons of fun blocks to exchange! I just hope that everyone that's signed up will follow through...haven't heard some several who's pm'd me, but hopefully many are busily working away in their sewing rooms.

    Oh my, all the gorgeous blocks added since I've last checked in! All so cute!
    Belfy, your blocks are a great addition and don't look as simple as you are claiming!!! All that fussy cutting of those beautiful flowers! I actually vote for the border on the last one half red and half gold just like you have it! It looks so pretty like that!
    Welcome to all the new one who joined in the last couple of days!

    Well I am done with five sets and that was going to be all I sent in but......now I'm thinking I will draw up another hand stitching block. It will give me something to do if (when) the power goes out! We are all hunkered down here and ready for the old girl! Luckily we have a gas stove and not electric so we will be able to eat. AND, I have plenty of wine to get me through!!!!!hehehe I am really not taking the storm lightly, just trying to stay positive and not get myself worked up with worry! Have a good week everyone!
