Golo,
I think your pedstals need to be over the globes. Very Happy

LOL you are just a helpful crew aren't you?? Golo.. you liked your globes so much they rolled off the pedistals...LOL

If you look at snow globes they have the town where they came from or the song that they are playing the signatures will not take over the block and if everyone will splurge a little and get a pigma pen it will help with the nice fine signature... this way the signature does not wash off and it is acid free..
I am suggesting that you put your signatures on but still label your block on the back this way everyone knows who got their block from who...now (jokingly saying) we all know which ones would have been Golo's if it weren't for Luv's eye to detail..LOL

I love those globes and the pedistals are perfect for them to sit on...

I couldn't believe I had done that... luckily I tried a new adhesive # 606 and it allowed me still to move them or I would have been doing 24 new blocks... I like this stuff it leaves the fabric soft.... doh

Maybe fusible companies are now thinking of the quilters and that softer textures are needed... I am working on my Asian blocks first then my snow globes.. I am on a roll for picking fabric for them...

I have the best background fabric I found in my stash..it is a light beige fabric but it is reindeer and swirls of winter and Christmas trees lightly on it it is very cool...I was also looking at this other one but it is a little darker beige with evergreens everywhere and thought it might be a little to dark...

Suggestion do see if you can get fabric that has a slight design (beige off white) for the background this way if you set them like attic windows it will look like they are sitting on a shelf with a wallpaper in the background...try not to use just muslin...remember quilters cotton is essential as with all our swaps unless otherwise indicated...

I hope everyone is having fun picking out their fabrics that has signed up already..don't be afraid to post what you have selected for your globes or pedistals....I will as soon as I get my own computer back...

Is anyone else tempted?? are you enticed as yet.. these are wonderfully big enough that you can even start thinking of the quilting motifs to put inside the globes...if you you go to a LAQ imagine how much fun she will have customizing this wonderful Christmas treasure you will have ready for christmas as a gift or for your own display...I only have one other christmas quilt that I had done as a mystery so it would be nice if I can display another...LOL

Don't worry Breezy at the end of the month everything will be clear as spring mud..LOL

We will have it all in order and you are always allowed to ask questions..maybe someone else has the same question...

I have been working on my Asian blocks they are almost done and next will be the globes.. I must say the globe is the easiest part it is the pedistal fabric to pic!!

but I have a little time for that...

Golo & Deb - your globes are awesome - this is going to be such a fun swap with all the different fabrics. So Deb, you're saying our BG doesn't need to be pure white but could be cream or beige on white to get the wintry feeling to stand out?

Sure IBM... as long as it I am pretty sure I put on the front it could be off white/biege and could have a winter theme to it...I will double check that I emphasis that

It was so easy for me to do these blocks while watching a great movie...pick a good movie and they will be done in no time... I used Laurel Birch fabric for my globes..partridge in a pear tree and all that jazz..

I know I know it is to early to be thinking this but I have just found the perfect swap pattern and we need to get it now before it is not posted anymore.. "Snow globes"

We are currently doing a swap with Asian girls were we are just fusing the patterns on...well why not with these snow globes and then the recipient can sew the colors the way they want.. as long as it is Christmas fabric...there are only 2 pieces plus your background (off white try to use winter background)

I will be the organizer for this swap if anyone is interested.. I would like the signup to end by March 31 but your blocks don't have to be done until July 31 since it will be Christmas in July..

So I know once you see the pattern it is only 2 pieces you won't be able to resist so I am hoping we get 30 swappers these are 8 1/2in blocks so this is very very simple, CUT BLOCKS 9 INCHES


Thanks to all those that love snow globes this is going to be an excellent quilt..

simple run down

100 percent quilters cotton, prewashed, Christmas themed globe and off white winter based if possible background. If you have not cut your back grounds already please cut to 9inches rather then the 8 1/2inches so that they can be squared up.

1. No Sewing
2. Light fusable web
3. Christmas themed globe
4. Winter (off white) background can have slight design as long as it is winter.
5. Sign in deadline March 31st
6. Deadline for mailing July 31st
7. Mailing will be decided by how many sign up whether to have as individual or send to me and I divide them...I will set a poll on the majority
8. Use pigma pen for signatures on blocks it is acid free and does not run..will wash well too.

I guess you want to veiw the link... okay get ready.. you are not going to want to resist this!!!!

I pulled it forward and want everyone to look at it and make sure everything is right... That everyone is accounted for and if the siggies ... no siggies are marked right....

I would also like to have everyone put their state/country with sigs... so many times I look at the blocks I get in these swaps and can't remember what state they came from, so it would be really nice if everyone could do that for me too. Very Happy
