Great pics! My blocks are more bold in color and print. It will be interesting to see them in a quilt. I may end up making the quilt myself.

Dear Host Quiltingbee12,

I pm'd you for a mailing address for the blocks. I hope to hear from you soon. I am more than half way done with my blocks.

I signed up but don't see that the note was read yet. Just sent it on the 11th.

I'm thinking about this one! I'm going to do some practice blocks first to be sure I can do them correctly. I have plenty of scraps!

I made my blocks 1/8" larger than the required 6.5" block so that they can be cut to size by the recipient. Originally they were coming up a little short when assembling my 2.5" strips. So cutting a bit larger was my compromise.

I am using a new sewing machine (electronic Brother which I am not in love with) and the seam marks are really weird on this machine plus I can not use my quilting seam guide on this one. The thread tension when haywire on my beloved Baby Lock & I could not get in back in order so it is on it's way back to the repair shop.

Please join us, the more the merrier. Hopefully our host will check in with us soon.

I'm in (9 sets). If I understand correctly, we cannot "sign up" until our blocks are completed?

I get it that a set is 4 units (unsewn 6 1/2 x 6 1/2) rail.
minimum is 3 sets of 4 units, max 9 sets of 4 units.

the 3 (up to 9 sets) sets do NOT have to be same fabrics.

packaging question.

pin the 4 sets together..label...write on the bag, or pin a pce of paper.
each set (4 units) bagged separately? or 3 sets (4 pinned units) in SAME bag?

I am new to this & want to play by the rules! :P

I would like to try this but I"m going to watch for a little bit to see how it goes while I work on making my blocks.

I am hoping to have my blocks done so that I can participate in this swap - my first.

I thought I should make my interest known.

Well I was almost done with my swap blocks and then I starting having so much fun making the blocks, I started a whole new stack.

Here are pics of some of my blocks.
