    Jaba, you've been a busy girl! Cute, cute blocks! I have your name down as our 3rd person with a set of blocks...okay, so you did...six...LOL! It's good to be back home and I have a lot of threads to catch up on...I'm thinking I may need to do a bit of Christmas/Winter fabric shopping to figure out all my sets of blocks to make...we'll see...it's tough of course to buy fabric, but I try and brave the ordeal...

    I am just checking to make sure I have the rules correct, can I send the blocks to you now Rhonda? I am done and want to send them off before the get buried in my mess!

    I am so tired, time to shut the machine down, don't want to make any mistakes! If it is ok to send they will be in the mail tomorrow.
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Ronda - I'm very new to the Quilting Board and am "finding my way" around, and just found your "Winter/Holidays, Holidays Block Swap". Sure would like to join in the fun! I feel I can do 2 sets of 5 blocks. Thanks.

    Here are the fives sets I am working on, still needs some triming, and the two sets of applique blocks need the stitching around. I intend to do six sets before I am done, but wanted to say I was in, and show my progress so far. They will all be 9 1/2 by 9 1/2. Not sure about that last set... size or design... I'm still thinking...

    And I have a question, it says to lable you blocks with your name, does that mean to write on the blocks, or to lable the baggie we put them in? I'm not fond of writing on blocks. So, I thought I'd ask. Thanks.

    Nice job Kensington! Yes, labels are important, but not permanent labels. I've pm'd you. Welcome!

    One more question... I believe the rule is that if you have "add ons" to your blocks, ie: Buttons, bows, bells, etc... you don't sew them them on, you pin them or put them in a baggie?

    I attach a mailing label to the back of the block. Usually I make special ones for swaps, but had so many address labels I used up a lot of them in the boom swap so I made new labels for this one. The reason I like using address labels is so I can keep track of who made what block for my quilt, I usually leave them on until I am ready to do the layering and quilting. And the good thing about the address labels is they are easy to move around. One quilt I made for my Niece I put a label on the back if there was not one on it I just wrote the name of the Quilter and the location: Example Marybeth Crestline CA, because my niece was more interested in where they came from than who made it, but I wanted to know who made it so I could send thanks, or keep accurate records.

    I hope this helps. btw I get my labels at the 99 cent store, I can usually find them in packs of ten pages with 30 on each page for 99 cents.

    Rhonda, I did not get my package together in time for mail run but it is ready now so going out tomorrow. I will post the last set picture as soon as I get camera back from hubby! he is taking pictures for Craig's list! LOL, that man is a bargaining addict~ And he loves the free pages on Craig's list!

    This is my last block to be appliqued. That will make my 6 sets. I'm having a hard time deciding if it looks like an ornament or not... the pattern is. LOL. It has a ribbon tie with it. 6 1/2 X 9 1/2. I need to go pick up some thread for applique.

    Oh you know what would be cute?? My ornament block made me think of it... since I think it kinda looks like a jar with ornaments in it. LOL... That block I've seen that is a jar, using candy cane, ornament, or fabric like that! I should have thought of that sooner. Oh... yeah... NOW the ideas come. ROTFLOL

    I love your block, but I love the idea too, like the jars you see in a candy store at Christmas time.

    Well, I recently made one canned chicken jar block for our recent chicken block swap. Does that count?

    I haven't seen anyone post that block yet. If I hadn't already done all six of my sets, I'd do it. Whoa's me... Maybe you will do them???
