I just PM'd Pookie, since she was the only other one who had expressed interest in the swap. Is there anyone else I have forgotten?

Okay, start thinking of what you wish to see in your mailbox. mailbox (Winning lottery tickets won't show up there, sorry. You will have to go to your local gas station or grocery store for that! HEHE lol! ) The decisions will need to be finalized on Dec. 31st. (I won't be on here until the first though, so you can sneak in at that point. LOL!) If you already know, you can speak out and let everyone else know, too. The decision of theme or color and then your preferred size (I am not talking dresses, either!) Have fun, it is a hard choice but an enjoyable one, IMHO.

WOOHOO!!! I am glad you've decided to play. It is really not a taxing swap, I promise! And May is a good month! I was only 1 hr and 37 minutes too lated. OH SO CLOSE! I could have had the lovely emerald for my birth stone! GRR! (Was born at 1:36 am June 1. Go figure!)

Well, I am going to take a stab in the dark and say that buzzysma likes butterflies. What do you think?

Oh I did see in several different magazines patterns for butterflies. That will be an easy choice for everyone, I think. You could do PP if you want, you could do regular piecing, or applique! (Of course you could cheat and just send a lovely piece of butterfly fabric. Just kidding! Though I would probably do that too, just so buzzysma has a choice of using the block I made or the piece of fabric, or both! LOL! lol! )

I have a February bday. It's the 20th. I would like 10" (finished) basket blocks.

Stacy - I am still waiting to finish your bday block. My machine was in the hospital AGAIN. It is going to get replaced, but had to wait until a new one got ordered. My new machine is on it's way, then your block will be on it's way to you. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The preliminary rules are as follows:

*100% cotton, best quality you can find, or have on hand. (Jo-Ann's is carrying a quilter's line now so you can use that.)
*Pre-wash, please. Some of these quilts are likely to be washed, so pre-shrinking will save heartache for the receiver.
*Sign with your name, your QLR's screen name, your location. (i.e. Dayton, OH USA)
*All blocks are to be sent to me by the last week of the month prior to the birthday month. (i.e. I need Feb blocks by the end of Jan, March blocks by the end of Feb, etc.)
*Send your first block(s) with a SASE (self addressed stamped envelope). That way, when your birthday month comes around, you can get your lovelies very quickly!

These are just the preliminary rules. They are the same as last time, for those who played in the 2008 swap. It is the same as most swaps, I think.

Any questions?

Q-brain -
No inconvenience at all on my end, but I'm so sorry your machine is in the hospital, again.

WOOHOO!! :yahoo:

I am glad you are in, Marynel!

Now comes the tough part... choosing your theme and block size, or your color(s) and block size. I am swaying in the breeze still...

OH yes, I just thought of something. Please forgive all of these posts by me, I am really new at this!
Anyhow, IF someone wants crazy quilt blocks, you need to stipulate if you want only 100% cotton, or if you want a more traditional look with fabrics that might be satin, silk, polyester and so on. I will stipulate that if they are put onto a foundation that it is a square, though. Diamonds are hard for some people (ME!!!!) so we need to keep it simple for them (ME!!!!), okay?

Quiltbrain,
I have Questions?
1. Do you have a color choice, basket color or background?
2. Do you want 10" finished or unfinished
Theme is baskets, I got that one! :lol:
I've never done a basket either, this will be fun!
