    ok Maybe on WEd I will have time to just play and read the manual on how to do the embroidery machine. I also have the stuff you put on the back for backing ....I think that is what it is called. I guess I am not that bad after all. I got mine in 2006. My BFF gave her embroidery machine to a friend out here in CA before she moved back to NH. The friend was suppose to pay her for it and she never did. My friend still has all the cards that go into a card reader. Have no clue about that as mine has a disc drive. One more set of winter blocks to do and then I can play.

    We are going to have some pretty quilts with these blocks. Getting excited. Need to finish trimming up mine today and will get in mail tomorrow but no later than Friday, just in case I can't get it done right away. I know, you want photos, I am behind on that also. Will get there.

    No worries QuilterMomma...you have plenty of time. Breathe and do them as you can...we'll look forward to seeing more pictures. I agree about the blocks...I'm bummed that I can't have one of everything...but then also happy, because no matter what blocks I end up with, I will love, because I haven't seen yet a block I don't want.

    I trimmed up these three sets. Trimmed up my bells, but they need a border because the design did not fit neatly in the required package I had in mind. So need to add to them to get them squared up.

    Do you think they need bordered? They do fill up most of the space on the white. If so, let me know and I will border them. Will have to go and dig awhile in fabric to find something. Off to do some more later.

    The backing fabric is snowflakes which just adds to the motifs. Will post the others when I get a chance, they are in a tin now until I get home. They were bad because they did not "measure" up correctly.

    You probably know more about it then I do, but when I did my applique blocks, I cut my background fabric 1/2 inch too large purposely, That way if they pulled and came out smaller I could still trim them to the size I wanted. Does that make sense? Leave them larger until after your pattern is embroidered on and then cut? HTH.

    That is what I did, but they design did not lend itself to the 9.5" size so I need to add borders to fill the block up and make it look nicer. It will look more complete. If I get the two quilts quitled tonight, then will work on them and post a photo for you.

    Yes, this swap is officially now closed. And yes, I am excited to have all the blocks mailed to me and swapped out and everyone getting their blocks back home again. It will be fun!

    Tracibug, cute cowboy block!

    Really stunning blocks and I don't think they need bordering. Personally, I'd rather receive them plain and if they need to be larger for my design, would prefer bordering them myself.

    Tracibug -- wonderful happy Cowboy Christmas block!

    I will leave these as is then and get the one set bordered. RW will we be getting these back before Thanksgiving? Just wondering because if I don't get to go to Montana for the weekend, would love to work on this quilt that weekend while putting up Christmas decorations and such. Would just pull in the holiday spirit and my daughter has already been asking about it, she is more excited than I am. When you get that response from a receipient, you can't help but get to work on a quilt.

    The last date to wait for blocks to arrive is Nov. 12. My plan is to have the blocks swapped out by Saturday the 17th and heading home by Mon. the 19th. But please don't hold my feet to the fire and burn me if something happens and I have to make minor adjustments? I will definately have them in the mail before Thanksgiving, but some may not receive them that quickly...just depends upon how quickly and accurately I can swap these puppies out and if everyone sends the blocks sooner than the 12th, I can begin swapping a bit earlier.

    Glad I live near you because if you put in mail on the 21st, I will have by 23rd then. That would be cool. If, I am not going to Montana. Won't know until they tell daughter if she gets her vacation time for then and DH may have to work. I did not mean to put pressure on you RW, just palnning my world of UFOs that are to be done if I need to occupy my time that weekend. I am using the Christmas tree for the Craft show so it will be set up anyway. That will really put us in the mood for the holiday. LOL You are such a dear Ronda.
