BTW, your trees are really cute. Love the snow on top!
    Sure you can. I'm just trying to get an estimate, so it's fine if you change the count you actually send in. Thanks regards the trees...I do like them as well.

    Welcome Cuppy!
    Hi, You can put me down for 2 sets and I will add to it if I can. I seem to want to do everything and they run out of time. Love the trees.

    OK I have a question, I think I got it but want to make sure. If I do 6 sets of 5 each all the blocks in each set are alike, but all 6 sets are different? So I can make one set of snowmen, one of raindeer, santa... etc I might use different fabric but pretty much each set would be the same?

    If I am correct I would love to do 6 sets, I will be doing 3 sets of Embroidery and 3 sets of applique. I love doing swaps, it keeps me on a schedule and I am amazed how many quilts I get finished.

    Thanks Marybeth

    Right on Marybeth! The only other stipulation is that if a set measures 3 1/2" square then you must make 10 of those. I just started learning redwork so I am going to do at least two sets of that. I love swaps too! I don't have an embroidery machine so I love when people send in those kind of blocks. And everybody has different creative ideas so the quilts are always so interesting!

    Cool, thanks I don't like doing the 3.5, they are to easy to lose in my messy messy sewing room! I told hubby I think I left the window open and a tornado must have hit! He just does not believe me!

    I think most of my sets will be 6.6 and 9.5 I have been getting some really cool embroidery patterns, and my thread got here last week, I am keeping both machines going! All my sets will be pretty much Christmasy. I will send a pm to Rhonda to let her know I am in!

    Welcome Marybeth! I got your pm and you are on the list! (and not the naughty or nice list either, LOL). I am assuming that when you said 6.6, you meant 6.5"? It will be fun to see what you come up with!

    Thank you Craft for explaining and answering Marybeth's questions. I love you guys! You're awesome!!!

    Welcome snownannie! May I assume by your user name and where you live that your name is more figurative than literal? LOL!

    Okay ladies, just to keep this fun and encourage you gals to not only get started on these blocks, but also give a little added incentive...
    I'm going to give a small giftie to the first 3 people (besides me) who make and post a set of blocks for this swap...keeping in mind quality over quantiy always? Beside, you'll be getting one back, so...don't be in such a hurry to finish as to sacrifice quality, but we're not quilt police either...LOL! Only one prize for the first 3 people, NOT sets of blocks. I know it's more usual that participants may send little hostess goodies, but heh! I want to share too and it's ridiculous to send to myself! You will have to wait to get your gifties til I swap your blocks back however. I'm ready to mark names down. Anyone????

    A wonderful friend sent me a box of samples. I made them into 12 1/2" pinwheels. Would these work?

    Mary, I like all of them, however, I agree with Lynnie that they show up better with the light blue background. What size are they?

    You can post a picture and we can take a peek see? A 12 1/2" pinwheel block is rather large for that type, but if it's made nicely and with pretty Winter/Holiday fabrics it may work?

    My first set, they are 6.5 I may re-do the dark blue, but I really like that fabric, but might find something else that does stand out better. I think I will do some angels, or reindeer, humm so many choices!

    Here's my first set of blocks! Sorry the pictures aren't so good. I'm not sure why they kept coming out so dark. The gift fabric has gold accents and the ribbon is metallic gold.

    Not Fall...Winter/ Christmas/ Kwanza/ Hanukkah are the holidays I am meaning. PM me if you want to play and let me know how many sets you're planning on making? Thanks for the good question.

    I am making bells today with Embroidery machine, need to take break headache Again! will post after a nap. blocks are 6.5.

    I am thinking of doing all embroidery instead of half Applique. It is easier for me (the machine does most of the work) and I have so many Christmas designs.

    Would that be ok?

    Hope I have the time for another project. Would like to join this one. If I get the chance to join how does everyone feel about Santa. I love him and collect him. Have been collecting Santas since I was about 15 and would love to have a quilt with Santa on it. Of course any xmas is better than no xmas.LOL
