    Sorry ladies each of us will end up with less blocks. Some ladies failed to to come through. I do not have enough time to make every missing block. Hope everyone understands :D :D

    Why on earth would we expect YOU to make up for the missing blocks??? I certainly wouldn't ...it is enough that you were kind enough to organize the swap and follow through with it for this long. Thanks for that Bebe! I'll be very happy with whatever I get....afterall, it was lots of fun and I learned quite a bit!! :D

    I agree - just return the unclaimed blocks in our package. It is the risk one takes with any swap. I'll just be happy, happy, happy with the blocks I do get. It was fun making them & will be sooooooooooo much fun getting them!!!! :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

    We wouldn't rxpect you to make up the extra blocks Bebe. I have your extra one done and will post a pix soon. Going to try and do 3 in college's today.

    Having computer problems though - keeps turning off on me. Hope it isn't going to crash.

    BeBe:

    You will be getting my blocks as well as some extra to full fill one of the ladies that couldn't finish the swap.

    I will be happy with what ever blocks come to me. I can't wait to see them altogether.

    I was greatful that all the different types of blocks got me out of my comfort zone and now I feel confident to expand to different type of quilts.

    There is an extra one in the package for you BeBe. I was a 1" off on all the blocks when I cut them so you now have a baby block! :lol:

    Bebe,
    Thanks for organizing this swap for us - I certainly understand that life happens.... so each person gets one less block - and our group gets the Hunter's Star returned - I have always wanted to make a Hunter's Star quilt, anyway, and now I know how to make the block. Maybe I will use mine for the center of a new quilt, and I'll just add a bunch of borders to it.

    Or maybe.... just thinking here - maybe those remaining in our group would like to use the block as the center of a Round Robin Exchange... I send my center block to someone who adds a border to it. Then she sends it to someone else for a second border, and finally to someone else for the third and final border. Then you ship it back to the original owner. We have done this in our guild for the past few years.

    We could establish some rules such as: Borders not more than 5" wide, and you can use a small (up to 1") stop border before adding your next border. Then we would have rules for each border:
    Border 1: Triangles
    Border 2: Applique'
    Border 3: Squares/Rectangles

    Before we begin, we would be sorted into groups of four. Everyone interested would send me a pm with their addresses so that the instructions to you would include the address of where you send your next Round Robin. The original person would send the block, and any instructions/personal preferences along with three mailing labels in a large manila padded envelope. Just re-use the same envelope each time you send it along. You pay for postage each time. You will have one month to get each border done and ship to the next person on the 1st of the month.

    When you get your block back, it will have three borders added to it; the right size for a cute table topper or wall hanging.
    Here are some examples on our guild website:
    http://www.hebervalleyquilters.iwarp.com/photo.html

    This would be a kind of design challenge. Is anyone interested? Send me a pm to let me know and I would be happy to facilitate this new Swap. If Bebe mails out our blocks by the 31st of March, we could begin on May 1st. I would need responses as soon as possible, and would form the groups and send your instructions by April 15th, giving you time to mail your center block to the next person on your list. you would not necessarily need to use the extra block you get returned from Bebe, but we would add the rule that the center block be no larger than 12-1/2", as most of our blocks are in this swap. Does this sound fun to you? Let me know, and we will continue our fun!

    That does sound like a great idea but I'm already involved in 2 RR groups right now...so I'll have to sit this one out and watch. Its a great idea for the extra block though!

    So, I take it that both groups had people who dropped out???

    I am all for a round robin with my x-tra blocks or even better, donating them for a good cause.

    thanks again to Bebe for organzing this. I had a great time making all the blocks and picking out all the fabrics.

    All of you are so nice about this and I understand that some people have their problems, but I will not join another swap after what happened on this one. I did enjoy making all the blocks and it was a real learning experience for me, making some things that I wouldn't have done on my own, but it is very dissapointing that the results didn't pan out as planned.

    Expect the unexpected in swaps. People in the beginning want to do well but by the end they forget their commitment and do not take it seriously. They think they can just leave and let others down. Very common in swaps. So sad but true!!!! :( :(

    Ladies that finished their obligation thank you!!!! :D :D :D :D
