I have been TERRIBLE with the block swap lately. . .I have been trying to keep up with my sending, but I am not doing as well as I should!!

I have two blocks (that are adorable!) but I don't know who made them!!! Would you let me know if these are yours?

Thank you!!

(PS - have you sent out your December blocks yet? - I will be sending out January emails on late the 25th or the 26th)

December Swap

Hello Everyone, I am sorry for the confusion earlier, I believe someone else posted here, thinking that it was their shared blog. 

I am sorry that things have been so slow coming this fall, especially this month.  With Thanksgiving I completely forgot.

I understand December is a busy month, especially for those of us that are crafty, so if you need some more time to ship your block just shoot your partner an email!

I am also going to be redo-ing the blog look soon.  We have had a lot of people leave, and their information is still listed.

If you would tell your friends about this we could get some new blood for 2014!!

Hope you all have a great holiday season!

November blocks for Rebeckah

Rebeckah asked for "Borrow and Lend" quilt block in "forest" colours.
I hope these 2 blocks will suit your project. The rust in the second block
is not as bright as the photo. Happy stitching, Kerry

October Swap For Sandi

Any block in burgundy, mauve and green was requested.  The colors didn't really come out right in the picture; the green looks gray and the mauve looks very pink.  Hopefully, the real thing will be more exciting ;)

Sept. Block for Beverly in OK

Beverly in OK was my September partner. She requested a Dresden plate or something else.
As my 82 year old mother in law and I will be doing my first Dresden plate together next year I choose to do something else.  I hope she likes it.

August and September Blocks

I finally got my August block done this weekend.  I got into my "Katie Jump Rope" stash and pulled some orange fabric.

I also got my September block done at the same time.  She requested a cactus pot.  I used some polka dot fabric I had in my stash.

Getting caught up

I just returned home from 4 months working in Yellowstone National Park. While I was there, I received 4 different blocks - and figured I'd better get them posted!

Eccentric Star - May block from Teresa

June block from Janet

April block from Debra

July block from Linda

I also received this block but failed to write down who it was from. Is this my August block from Agnes or is it from another swap?  Sorry!

Late August Swap

I am very sorry that I was late in sending out swap partners this month!  I am a teacher, and so during the summer my schedule is not quite as set in stone, it's very fluid, we've gone to a lake house, Nashville, been to a wedding and now I have two girls with me (that aren't mine, they are family friends) so we haven't been sitting still much!  It doesn't help that I have no clue what day it is most days!

School starts in August, so hopefully next month we won't have any issues.

Also if you have any friends that would like to join the swap please send them over! Our numbers are starting to get a little smaller :/

Happy Quilting!!

Remember when you post your blocks put August 2013 as the label!

May Block Swap from Julianne

I have been trying to post these photos all week and finally was able to confiscate my hubby's computer for a few minutes.  I received these lovely blocks from Julianne for the May block swap.  They are my first spool blocks and I just love the fabric she chose.  Thanks for swapping with me Julianne!

June swap

Hello everyone, I got the June swaps sent out! Again I am sorry for the lateness!

I just have a few house keeping items. 

1. Please do not use muslin as a neutral. Generally it is not the same quality as calicoes. 

2. I was wondering if I could have your help. I would like to see labels used more often, but what happens is one person might use the tag 2013 - may another person might use may13, and so on. So I was hoping we could have some continuity, I would like to add something to the top that when clicked would show all the labels for a specific month. So from now on, when you post if you would add the (full) month and the year, so any posts for June would have the tag June 2013. Thank you!

3. If you have any friends that would like to join please have them email me at new members are ALWAYS welcome!

4. Please make sure you are communicating with your partner, I haven't talked to anyone that isn't understanding of a busy life or other things going on. 

5. Don't forget to share pictures! And if you don't have a blog, then you can email me your pictures and I can post them for you. 

Have a good night!

June swaps

Hello everyone! It is the 26th and I didn't get swap partners sent out. I am VERY sorry about this. My husband decided to surprise me with a weekend away this weekend!

We are on our way home now, so expect the partners with in a few hours (I have to finish up some of the emails). 

I am sorry!!! 

Saturday, May 25, 2013


Pat, here is your block.
  I hope you like it!
It will go in the mail on Monday the 26th!

I am taking a break from the swap for the summer as I have way to much on my plate at the moment, but I will definitely be back!

 I luv the Block Swap Adventure! 

I will be checking in regularly to see what you are all up to over the next few months!

Bye from CathyC in Australia

Hi everyone, this is my last post for this group :(

Some of you may know that I am currently studying and I have had to make a decision to step back for the time being.

I have loved being part of this group - I have some lovely blocks to show for it too - and will send a photo to  Melissa when I have made up my next 'Friendship Quilt'.

Bye for now, and happy swapping!
