    Woohoo! I just finished putting this together and it is sooo pretty! Thanks to all the Christmas DJ swappers :lol: Now...If only I knew how to bind an inside corner...I didn't quite think that far ahead. :oops:

    I love it though and I'm so happy with the way its turned out so far. I'm planning to quilt in the ditch...starting maybe tomorrow.

    Oh yes, I do have 3 beauties left over that I will use to make hot pads/trivets. They will look great with the table runner. :lol:

    Beautiful!!! I love all of your blocks, what a treasure!!! :D:D:D

    I am thinking this tute might help, only in the dips you would kinda reverse the technique...I am at loss for words to describe what I mean...

    Ok...I'm a little slow tonight. I followed the link, makes sense but at first I couldn't wrap my little pea brain around it!

    It's beautiful - and I'm so pleased to see my 2 blocks in it! Yours is the 1st finished one that I've seen. You must have finished your Christmas shopping and wrapping early!

    Your sashing looks great! What a great idea. This will look so pretty on a table, I'm still debating what I should do with mine. I think a small throw quilt.

    I am still new to the terms used! When you do a swap do you make a block for each person in the swap? Is that block the same for each person? How do you know what block to use.
    Thanks and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you wonderful quilters. I so enjoy this site (I probably stay on it toooo much) and have learned so much. Let's hope 2010 will find all of us smiling and quilting!

    The blocks on here usually involve you making so many of one block. For the DJ exchange we each made 18 blocks all the same. You send them to a certain person with a return envelope and then you get back 18 differetn blocks, one of which is the one you did. Clear as mud? You can do multiple sets and get more blocks, so you might do 18 of one block and then 18 of a different one. The larger blocks usually involve doing 12 blocks. There is actually a chocolate Raspberry exchange that's still open for sign ups.

    That turned out beautifully, Patti! I'm doing a table runner with mine as well, on a white-on-white background to make the blocks really stand out (though it occurs to me - belatedly - that white isn't the best colour for a table runner. Hmmm. Maybe a wall hanging instead?)

    I hope to see other people's creations with the Chistmas DJ blocks!
