    The newb has forged on, despite two days of migraine. Here are my latest. 6pm deadline for the mail pickup so will scream in by the seat of my pants.

    Please do not believe any one who says a snowball block is the easiest block every... May be if you only do the 6 1/2". My 12 1/2" blocks took me 7 hours to finish. Argh, that was not part of the schedule!!

    And a bit of blue for those ladies...

    Hope you like.

    I love the fussy cut snowflake! Then again, I'm partial to blue.
    I'm a newbie on this board and the way you do swaps, but I really like this method of making sets of 5 or 6 blocks instead of all the same one for 20 or so people.

    I love that Snowball block. You did good on them all. Welcome to the swap!

    Don't sweat it! My first swap was a Patriotic star block swap. I had made a few strip pieced quilts, but had never even made a 1/2 squared triangle or dealt with points. I made 2 sets of ten blocks and mailed them off! That is still one of my favorite quilts to this day.

    I love the ones you made. The red christmas material is awesome and the snowballs are fine. I like the snowflake too.

    If you don't like snowmen (women), look away.

    For those that like 'em plain, the first 2 sets are bluework and redwork. If you like a little fancier, next is "snowballs" - love this block. And then there's blustery 9 patches, then half frames, and finally 9 patch stars...all 6s and 12s. Hope you like.

    Oh, and can you tell that I have a "blue" quilt in mind??? He he

    Let the swapping begin! On my way Ronda.

    Ok... I had suspected signing up for this might kill me and it was close. Despite the best efforts of an Italian intern wandering around my house for days in barely more than his bikini underwear.

    Here is my last block. Can't wait to get them back. I may actually get it put together for Christmas!!

    I will apologize now if my points do not all match. I trimmed minimally so as not to change size, the seasoned ladies know far better how to make adjustments than I do. And if you get one of my blocks, please feel free to PM me with suggestions or ideas, I surely can use any help I can get.

    I will take them only if that Italian Intern is in his bikini undies and has the body to match that bravery. (Don't worry, I am happily married and would not train another one, just had to notice the comment)

    Who said we would be sleeping? We will be tormenting her on the door step, and watch that Italian walk around the neighborhood harrasing the neighbors.

    You girls are gonna look interesting outside the boardroom from DH's work, which he's graciously reserved just for me for all day Saturday to swap these guys! LOL! Sleeping bags, Italian streakers...not to mention anxious quilter girls? It would certainly liven things up...he's in Home Healthcare and Hospice. I got quite a chuckle this morning!

    I have received packages from Pink Lady, Dottie Dodge, Let's Quilt & Pink Lotus! Thank you's to everyone and an extra one for Pink Lotus! The sewing room is getting really, really full now! I'm allowing a couple more days for packages to trickle in since I'm not swapping til Saturday, and because of Veteran's Day. I think we're almost there girlfriends!

    Here are Dotie Dodge's blocks. She asked if I would post pictures for her. They are extremely well made! Perfect size and points...heavenly for sure!

    Those sure are some pretty blocks. The candy jar was is really neat. We sure are going to have a very beautiful quilt when finished with all these wonderful blocks.
