    Remember ladies, we have a couple of months before due. I am sure we could whip up something right?

    It is true... Look at the dates everyone. THis one has a long time before the blocks have to be made and here to me.

    Just let me know quiltpd... we would love to have you join in the fun.

    I have never done anything like this before. So, I guess I will make a block and see if it's up to par. I'm kinda nervous about my blocks not being as nice as everyone else's. And I have to think about something girlie. No ideas are popping in my head. I do applique quite well. So if I fused my applique and sewed around it, would that be okay?

    jcrow, we love all kinds of blocks. Let us see your wonderful appliuque work. Hey, there are no purses yet, I know my mil has several, depends on the coat she wears and where she is going. That is an idea.

    You know Red, I am just going to have to say yes, I watch this everyday and just can't help myself. I have a little time to get them done so count me in. I know what I want to do, a sewing machine for sure, then I have that beautiful floral fabric left over from a backing on a quilt that I will make into a pieced block, then still trying to decide on the other thoughts, the tub sounds cool, 3 hours to stitch it out though. I may make different ones just to mix it up. I have at least three different designs of the tubs and then add some coordinating fabric to border them. Yeah, will do four sets. This will be an adorable quilt to hang at the office. Finally, something feminine. The wilderness blocks swap hangs in the office right now.

    It is a great animal print tub! I am so glad you joined in quilermomma! I have you down for the four sets. Whoo Hoo!!

    I had some great red rooster fabrics left from my last atavar quilt pic, so I thought a "Best Girlfriend's" block was in order for this swap. These are 61/2 x 6 1/2. I hope you all like it. There was just enough to make the seven blocks.

    I have two more of the love blocks to satin stitch up, but this one called to me to make today! LOL....

    I did a bad thing last night. I had to go and get a new bobbin case for my sewing machine, been using the same one for seven years now new one was in order, but then I just had to paruse the fabric selection and found this "hunky man" fabric which reminded me of my husband so I bought it to share. Do you mind terribly if I made some blocks with it? You know the men in our life are our favorite thing, at least in my house he is because he is the only one besides the dog. We have five daughters and no boys so he is spoiled. Let me know if that is ok. They are construction men. yes, they are in jeans, did not buy the one wher ethey were in their shorts. And they are wearing construction hats, just no shirts. If to much flesh, let me know, I will make a pillow case for my daughter otherwise with it. I just thought would be the "funky" for this swap. Id di also buy some dear ladiy fabric that I will piece a border around that will be cute as well. Just had to look didn't I.

    I love florals. I saw that design. I was considering putting it on my Mother's Day Cards, but didn't know how it would stitch on vellum. Love it here!!!!!!

    What about the green fabric?
    Should I change it?
