woo hoo, more funsters!!!! So glad you are all joining, this will be fun!

Mamu, here are some answers

"You are given a block design to do (applique or pieced) yes , you make 10 of them and send them off to be distributed to the participants.The number you make will depend on how many people join the swap Then you get 10 blocks back, each from a different participant in the swap Thats pretty much right, a couple of the blocks in the design can be divided/shared between participants, it will depend on how many swappers we get. And no one is to know what block design you are doing Thats right, its a secret, you can talk about making your block fabric choices colours etc, just dont tell what your block is!. So you really don't know what the blocks will look like or what the quilt might look like, till you get all the blocks. Thats right, its a mystery and a leap of fun
And it is Summer themed.... do I have this right?? Yup are we suppose to sign the blocks so everyone knows who did them and where they came from? I think that would be a good idea, we can see what others want but i personally love mine signed and where they came from on them

Marian, Id forgotten your layout, your quilt is beautiful and it was a fun swap wasnt it! Thanks for posting your pic Very Happy

There were 20 of us swapped back then, I remember making pumpkin blocks for everyone, it was fun.



So long ago and Shemoo just recently quilted my winter one, its hanging on my wall and Im loving having it finished after all this time. I promise not to leave the summer themed quilt we will be doing sitting for so long!!

Ladies even tho I am not participating I am enjoying / anticipating the outcome. It's a good experience for me to watch and learn. 15 months from now I plan on retiring and hope to be a part of a swap. I can be very firm with myself when necessary, and not take part just yet. Meanwhile I am going to lurk in this thread.

Don't just lurk Sewn, be sure to jump in the conversations too. Sewing, talking, swapping is always more fun the more folks that participate. You can be a cheerleader like me. Just check out my picture on pg 1, I look JUST LIKE THAT. lmao lmao lmao lmao lmao lmao

Looking forward to the day you retire and have time to join in with us.

I told him not to share that pic. It was for his eyes only. Scandalous old Duffer! At least he sent the one that doesn't show my shoe orthotics.

Is there still room? If so, I'm in. It will be a good project to initialize my sewing room. Provided I get the small room ready this weekend.
