    Alright need to decide. I finished first set of blocks and not sure about swapping them. I like them but not sure if anyone else will. I think the color choices I made may be an issue for some. Was hoping to get a few opinions. Swap them or make them in different colors.

    Hmmm... I don't know mdall. The batiks are fabulous, but I kinda think for a flower like this it gets a little muddy. I will leave it up to the other swappers. What do you all think?

    So instead of a blonde ssnare, I should make it a red head or a brunette? I haven't decided if I am going to do that one, but shopping is apparently a woman thing.

    No, I replied to the wrong post. Sorry, I meant to reply to the batik flower block. Keep the blonde.

    I love this idea, and hope I can join in... I broke my leg almost 2 months ago and am still not able to put any weight on it or walk for another 3 weeks, per the doctor. I am going to watch this one and when I can stand/walk enough to shop/iron/cut and sew some blocks I will let you all know if I am able to join. Absolutely love all that I have seen so far.

    ....and QuilterMama I love the block and keep it a blond..... I too looked like that before I had my son, and I love walking (before the broken leg) down Rodeo Drive to kill time before my Doctor appointments in that area. I hope I am able to join the swap just to get one of those.

    I hope you can join in too katvert. I always love your blocks. Please get well soon and be a good patient, ok? You will be thankful when you get older if you are.I too injured my knee (leg) in january and was unable to stand or walk on it. It is still giving me some trouble, but healing. Thank God. It sure was scarey there for a while.

    We are hoping this swap has tons of fun swappers with cute blocks. The subject is so cool and something that could be so creatively inspiring!

    I was working on my LOVE blocks today. I have the letters all adhered to the individual block backings. Now just to edge stitch them on. I think everyone will like these. They are very cute to me.

    Ok Sandy, I'm jumping in. I "love" your blocks no pun intended. Your last set talked me into it. Sending pm. I have a few things to finish and then I will get started on my blocks!

    Oh yea!! Welcome to the swap judith! Thank you for the compliment too. They are just hand guided satin stitched but the best I can do. (So far) I should get some good practice in on these blocks. LOL...

    Now Judith is in the fun, ah, I am so close to saying yes I can hardly stand it. If I sell the extra sewing machine tomorrow, I will just have to join in the fun, if it sells. Pray it does.

    I am like quiltermama, I am trying to hold tight, even though I have gone through my stash and have picked out fabric, I am not finished with my other projects. I am watching this thread though.

    We are watching it like a hawk. I have a couple of designs that will be fabulous on this swap and I know of some fabric, flowers of course because I love those, that will be just perfect to embelish the blocks with. But to focus on task at hand first. Then fun later.
