    Beautiful doll blanket and block. Love them both. I never had a doll blanket either.. Then again I don't have any friends that do anything for me sick or well. People just use me for my talents or see what they can get free. All my friends live from one side of the coast to the other. Here on the board . Here everyone wants to help someone or another and that is so awesome and kind. Big hugs everyone.

    Moonrise, I received your blocks last night. They are terrific! And a big "thank you" to you as well. Here are my last two sets of blocks for this swap. The angel blocks are 9 1/2" and the eight point stars blocks are 6 1/2". I hope you guys like them. Now I can just relax and see what all the rest of these blocks will look like that you all are making. I love seeing variety!

    I agree, Ronda, your blocks are the cutest! And you have inspired all of us.

    OK! I am not sure I have 'officially' committed to this swap, so I want to do so. I am not sure how many sets but for SURE I am know I am making gingerbread and snowmen of some style. I will PM you RW.

    Sew here is a silly question, maybe. I am new to raw edge applique. I notice RW that you sew yours a little away from the edge of your applique. Since I have never made a quilt with raw edge applique, my question is: is the idea that when it is washed it frays the edges a little? Hope that is not too dumb

    Urgodschild2, those sound like fun blocks!

    Welcome SewExtremeSeams! Glad to have you join us! I really don't know a great answer to your question...I think if you're really wanting the raggy look, that you might want to clip and leave more of a seam allowance on the outside?

    I think so, it will fray a tiny bit after washings. But, should not come unraveled. HTH.

    Thanks Ronda! The problem is I am a perfectionist (only in my sewing~~meaning I am not satisfied and will rip and rip to get there...) so my whole being is pulling towards wanting the edges to be smooth and finished.
    Have to laugh at myself because I know I am defeating the purpose and quickness of raw edge applique.

    You do whatever floats your boat! I have done all types of applique, from raw edge, to satin stitch, blanket stitch by hand and machine, to painstaking hand applique.

    Oh my goodness, you girls have been busy. I haven't been on for a few days and I sure did miss a lot! The ideas seem to be flowing and they are all great! I love the hot choco idea. Can't wait to see those blocks. I'm almost done with another set and will post a pic soon. Ronda, I'm so glad you do these swaps! Makes me feel like I am part of a sewing group. None of my friends like to sew so I am a lone stitcher! Thanks for being such a great group.

    Here's my next set of blocks. They are 12 1/2". I thought I would make a simple pieced block while I am working on hand stitching the snowflakes. So glad to hear we are adding more players to the swap!

    Here it is. The camera does not show the chocolate brown very well. I have vertigo today and one of my blocks looks very wonky so I will take it apart and start all over. I guess in my tilting head I thought it was straight. LOL

    Well here it is. The brown does not show up as well here. I have vertigo today and so one of my blocks is very wonky. I will have to take it out and start again. I guess it wasn't the room that was tilting but my head. lol.

    Ugh... I had vertigo once, caused by an inner ear infection. I couldn't even sit on the toilet without falling off. I had to sit down to take a shower and crawl along the LEFT wall in my house to answer the door. I tossed my cookies a bunch on the way to the ER too. It was Halloween, I was so thankful I had made the boys costumes the day before it hit. I spent the night in bed, my daughter drove home from College to dress the boys and grampa came and took them out and about for treating.
