Denise - thanks for the help on odd-sized blocks. I never thought of tipping them!! The blocks I was working with was the churn dash and I had 3 twelve inch and 3 twelve 1/2 inch. I just cut the 3 twelve 1/2 in down to 12 inches. Needless to say, those three lost their points!!!!!

Girls, I have updated my first posting with the sign-ups and blocks. Sandy, Sue & Sherry please pm your block choice to me.

I am really excited about this block exchange I hope every one else is too. Come on everyone. Join in.

Cherie

Sue, I think if you mail by the 25th instead of the 30th, it should be fine.

I haven't seen any problems with mail from your country. I know that Milica has a devil of a time, tho.

Please, join us. We will just play it by ear.

Cherie


Cherie- I would love to join (Am I the 'Sue' on the list already? )

Like everybody else, as Christmas looms on the horizon everything gets hectic but I'm pretty sure I'll get the blocks done, so long as everyone is aware and okay with possible postal delays in the run-up to Christmas. 

I'm really looking forward to this 

Sue x

I'm thinking, I'm thinking... So many blocks, it's hard to choose.  Will it matter if the block I choose is similar to or the same as what the others have chosen?  Most of the blocks I make are usually simple and uncomplicated...does that matter to anyone?   

PM coming your way...

sandy, at the moment, cherie is the only one who knows what blocks have been selected!  mine was fairly simple (i'll give you a hint - we made the block once for one of the snug uniblocks  ) so i can certainly say that i'm all for simple & uncomplicated blocks   i would think the only problem would come if you happened to choose a block that someone else has chosen, but really with all the many block choices out there, what are the chances? you could always choose Option B as a backup while you're choosing Option A

Hey Girls!!! I will be posting the blocks that have been chosen. So far, there have not been any duplicate choices. I will update on the first post. I haven't listed the colors yet as we don't know who will be in which group!!!!

Right now we have 7 sign-ups. We just need 5 more to have two groups. Come on, girls, you know you want to play with us!!!!

Cherie

This looks like you gals are going to have so much fun! Do you want me to mention it in the newsletter, blog, facebook, etc. areas for Q&N and see if we can get some new members to participate? I know that sometimes new members are awesome, and other times they make folks nervous, so I won't do it unless you ladies want me to.

Have fun!

Jess, yes, that would be great. I did mention it on the "quiltin" page on facebook but so far, no takers.

Prairiegal, I answered your pm and hope you will join up. Trust me, it will be fun.

I had a thought, and will let you all decide. What would you think about making a 7th block that I will keep and make into quilts to send Harmony House. It's just a thought and I will abide by the general consensus.
