I have been looking at xmas fabric all evening... is there ever some nice stuff out there... Gimpy are you in???

Sure, why not Very Happy I will do it with Laura, she can help choose fabrics and help fuse blocks, she loves snow globes so I know she will be keen to be involved :-)

Stella reminded me, laura and I would like siggys and full state/country too please, we want to always know where our snow globes came from :-)

wow 11 signups already awesome.. remember March 31st is the deadline and this pattern is just too adorable...I don't know why I didn't think of it!! it only makes sense to have snowglobes...don't forget to think of your pedistals...

You know you can make all of your globes the from the same fabric cause they are all going to different people...there is no stress in these little globes.. i know i some of that cardinal fabric too.. that would looks super just for the boarder.. is anyone thinkin' how they are going to lay them out!!

I am so excited. I have a "Santa's elf" helping me with this swap and I really do appreciate it.. it is Golo...she has seen me run swaps before and knows that I need help.. see how wonderful everyone is one this site? if you have an idea for a swap there is always someone there to help you out, it is always a joint effort...Hugs to you Golo!!

I am going to put a little plug in here I am not sure if you all read the headline for our Asian swap and not sure if you looked at the pattern.. don't get intimitated.. remember it is a no sew as well and some of the swappers are giving them away as gifts to others that like the Asian theme so it would be a great way to get an Asian quilt made for a friend or loved one.. but I am being selfish and want it for me..LOL just click on the "Join" word to take a look they are not due till July..so loads of time another project you can do with your family...Golo has some made and posted a picture and believe me they are gorgeous

Same with these cute Snowballs... I am so Glad that Laura is going to participate this would be the perfect project for her.. Golo what about your granddaughter?... these little gems would be a great project for those that have children to help make..they will lovingly cut out the patterns for you...this could be a group project...

As for the signage of the blocks do we want them in a specific area?? I will set a poll I think one for mailing individually or not and one for where the siggie should be...

thanks to all those that have signed up already and for those that will visit our Orient of the East swap and decide if they would like to get involved with that one too..

Great post Deb, who said you arent organised?? LOL. Vote is a great idea, I chose siggies under pedestal (had to think hard to choose but I couldnt ask laura as she is in bed) and I chose posting to the hostess, its so much easier for me to send to one person than to goodness knows how many from here. Laura is excited about it, she talked about it while hiking today. Good plug for the asian swap too, I will add this one to the banner tommorow so everyone knows. Sign up march 31st right?

I went to Cock a Doodle Quilts today (one of many quilt stores in our area) and got Soft to Fuse boy this stuff is really really nice. DH and I are going to watch a movie and I am doing my asian cutouts and my snow globes..(globs) so I won't be long getting these done.. and my perty asian kids. then I can go downstairs play with my fabric and get the blocks all done...

Golo... I know you will have them all done today...I am going to get some done so that I can post pictures too.. some of the Asian and some of the globes that should really lure some quilters in...

Anyone looking for information about this swap will find it all here.. I have deleted the post in CTTQ, if you know someone that would be interested direct them to this link...

Ok I voted! Siggies under pedestral and to mail to hostess. It would cost me a small fortune if I had to mail individually to all the swapees.

Hmm.....I'd better check my xmas fabric stash...it's pretty small stash so I may have to stock up!

you rock Sheemow!! Look's like Santa's elf has you in there!! is it siggies or no siggies for you??

Love the list growing and growing.. it is like the naughty and nice list but we have no naughties here do we??? LOL

We are all sweet sweet angels :tumble: thanks so much for those that have entered their name!! awesome.. so Glad Laura has her's in there too.. this is perfect for kids her age...

Please check back from time to time on the front page to the first post for what is required.. the pattern says to cut background to 8 1/2 inches I would rather you did 9 inches so the blocks can be squared up...

I can't wait to get all the blocks and divide them up they are going to be awesome I think I will have to put them all on the design wall first and take a picture..

I already let my DH know that we will probably be getting lots of packages in the mail in July..LOL..

Siggies under pedastool is fine with me and mailing to the hostess is fine with me as well. Going to talk to Gwennie about her daughter joining in as well. i know she'll love it. She loves anything that has to do with sewing anyway!

LQS mailed out $25 gift cards and a note saying if you use it by March 28, you get an additional 20% off fabrics.

Bet there's some Christmas fabric in clearance that would work great with this pattern.
