    I'm signing up for this swap too. Sheri, let me know what you are using for candy. I really like that idea! Thanks Kensington for the idea. All the blocks that have been posted are so great. Love them all!

    SheriR, I prefer candy with caramel please. The jar needs to be really fat and chocked full of course.

    Carmel.... I'd eat it all. I saw the most fun print of ribbon candy. I wish I had bought it. I'll never remember where I saw it. Dottie use anything you want.

    Welcome to KLT Quilts and Dottie Dodge! Happy to have you join in the fun!

    QuilterMomma, you might as well throw in the towel and join up...you know you want to... You'd make #20...good number there...

    Carmels and fudge are my downfall speaking of candy...and that season is coming quickly is it not????

    Rhonda~ I made a great big booboo, I sent my blocks to you, then when I was cleaning my sewing room, ok it was not me! I have to confess the girl next door comes over once every other week to clean my sewing room, in exchange for cool stuff I sew for her and lessons! I love her to pieces... Oh yeah where was I??? While we were cleaning she lifts up this baggie full of cool stuff and said "Where do you want this?" Well I want it in the mail going along with all the other cute Squshies I just sent out!

    So, the short of it is I am sending you 2 Envelopes, one big one stuffed full of goodies and one small one with the extra goodies! So hope you enjoy!

    btw promised picture of my final set!

    oh brother, boy did I mess up on that red and white block! How come you never notice what you did wrong until after it is in the mail? I will make a new one!

    I went to Hancock today to pick up some Batiks for the back of my sons quilt, and I found some "Christmas Cookies" fabric that would make a great "Jar Block". I bought a bit just in case... LOL. I've already made all six of my sets, so I'll just keep it in case I need to "fill in" once the blocks are swapped and I start putting my top together. They had peppermint candy fabric, candy cane fabric, another cookie fabric... Good luck to anyone who decides to make those for the swap... and who wants to send me one just cuz it was my idea. (hint, hint).

    LOL
    I found some cute Gingerbreadmen in my stash! I can't believe I didn't find them in time to make a block. But you just never know where they might turn up!

    I just now found out about a "Hobby Lobby" close to where I live... OK it is slightly less than an hour away, but heck everything is about a half hour away! Any way does any one know about this store? does it have cool Quilting stuff? If I am going to drive an hour it better be worth my while!

    Maryt you won't care, just go and enjoy the drive, if they have cool stuff that's a bonus, besides you know you're going to. Yesterday I bit the bullet, just because of you....Went to threadart and ordered stabilizer, 'cause it was on sale buy 1 get 1 - 1/2 price so I'm going to have 200 yards of it. Then no thread so ordered the 180 rolls, every color I'll ever need probably. Now the kicker, if I can't figure it out and get it done I'm putting in a request right now. I'll send you stuff and you and your little machine can just hum along and make it all for me. How does that sound?? Or the other option is I'm going to have alot of stuff to fill those SP boxes with for those that know how to use their embroidery machines.

    We have hobby Lobby... I've bought fabric there. They have some good stuff, but not a lot. It depends on what you are looking for. Try it.

    So good to hear of all the new sign ups!! All the blocks are just so cool, aren't they. The jar idea is AWESOME and I sure wish I would have thought of it! Quick question for everyone.....is anyone making any 3.5" squares? I'm working on my third set. They are red work snow flakes but with blue thread instead of red. I'll post a pic when I get the first one done. Have a great Sunday everyone!! Robin

    OH, Robin I can't wait to see your blocks. I made some Orange work into black work for halloween. I can't understand why the design called for orange when the black just Popped!

    But I change the color a lot that to me is part of the fun. But I really do love Red work. I am making a Redwork table cover for my sister for christmas and it is turning out so cute.

    I think I am going to put a border of PS blocks around the edge, so I don't forget I am a quilter first! LOL.

    Okay, I went shopping Friday, three quilt shops and no candy fabric. Would you believe I did not buy any fabric? Anyway, I found some chocolate candies at Over The Rainbow that I ordered for my jar of candy. I ordered enough QuilterMomma that the jars will be fat and chock full! They claim they can get 11 yards in a flat rate envelope for 5.95 so I had to take advantage of that. So much for "no buy" unless I use right away. Oh well, I managed to not buy for 9 months. It's pretty bad when they ask if they had done something to offend you because you haven't been in for so long. I also saw a quilt pattern for ornament blocks by Thimble Blossoms that I'm going to recreate for this swap. The pattern has 12 different blocks, 4 of which I really really liked. Can I make 4 different ornament blocks (total 20) or do you think they would be too much alike? I have other ideas for blocks too so it will not be a big deal. Sue

    Exactly right Ronda, we were typing at the same time. Thanks glad that they arrived and are at your house . Has Quiltermomma officially signed up yet? All her candy ideas she better or I'll have to start twisting that arm of hers again.

    Sue, Glad you found something you can use. I was thinking hard rock ribbon candy, it brings back fun child memories.... but I don't remember what store I saw it in and did NOT buy it....I should have listened to that quilty voice in my head saying "buy it buy it."

    Be careful what you wish for, or be very specific. Wish for one or two inches at most!

    Hey there girls... I just finished my applique. All of my blocks are done and ready to go. Not sure when I will ship, but probably the end of this week or the first of next. I have quilts that have to be shipped first. But... I'm getting there!
