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!!!

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!

My very late April blocks for Jody

Here are the two "Wonky" blocks that I made for Jody.  I find Wonky blocks to be very challenging, I sure hope she likes these, they are in the mail!

Sneak Peak for Cyndi

Cyndi said she liked stars so I have made her a star block.  The exact pattern and the colours will be a surprise.  One she likes I hope.

Update from CathyC

I have just come across some photos of blocks sent and received in the last few months that I have failed to blog about :(
BSA-swap for Pat
Sent to Pat for BSA

Received from Pat

Finished top

These are 11 of the blocks I have received in the swap (1 I made myself) that I put into a top.  I sent it to a friend who loves purple and kitties as much as me. 

It was kind of hard for me to give up those kitties.  I have loved getting them every month!

She also likes pink panther, I know it's kind of hard to tell in the picture.  Thank you so much everyone!!!

I would also love to see what some of you are doing with yours! even just sharing ALL the blocks you have received so far.

May block from Cyndi

Not just one block

but a second as well.

These are lovely and one will be set aside for my Cacti quilt, which is coming along nicely, while the other will become a cushion cover.

I'm so pleased to receive these two blocks.  The colours are lovely and will fit in perfectly with all the other blocks I have received so far.

2 blocks from Susan!

 Look at this! Not one but TWO blocks from Susan! Susan made the Scrap Bagger as well as the Goose Creek block for me.  Thank you Susan!

Susan had asked for a star block so I sent her the Winged 4 patch Star Below.

and here are all my blocks so far!  I think they are going to make a magnificent Scrappy Quilt!
