It's fine with me Jess, if you recruit new members and other folk to this block exchange.  The more the merrier!

Cherie, I'll make a 7th block as well.  Harmony Home deserves another quilt!

May I make a suggestion? If we have 2 groups that we give Guoup A a name Like Scrappy Head and Group B Nimble Thread so we know which people are in each group.  Or give each group their own thread to communicate better. When we did birthday swaps years ago it made it much easier to find your group to keep updated. And if anyone is interested I could run a birthday swap for next year.

p.s. count me in too.

 I choose the Deprssion Block from Quilters Cache in scrappy colors.

Woohoo!! Thanks for joining Kim and Nanci Just need 2 more!!! Come on girls, play with us.

I will give each group a name. Let me know your suggestions!!

So, we will all make 7 blocks, with the 7th block being made into a quilt/quilts by me for Harmony House. I am so glad that we are doing this. It really is a worthy cause.

I will update the first post and then off to work I go.

I am feeling sew tempted to join in here ...

Am I reading correctly that we will have all the patterns and color choices for our group at the start of the exchange and will not have to wait until each month to find out what we need to send that month?   The holidays are always so busy that I would definately need to make those months ahead of time.  I did this with the string blocks on BC and had them all in envelopes ready to send each month and that worked well for me.

Hmmmmmmmmmm ...   Pat

Hi Everyone,

I hope all is well with everyone's life and having a good summer. As we close for summer and prepare for fall, the block swap is a great idea.

I, too participated in the same block exchange as Cherie. I was sent some wonderful blocks with great colors. It's really a lot of fun !!! You get 6 blocks that work into a really fast top that works well for any charity or gift. It's fun to see the color waves everyone picks and the blocks you receive. When Cherie and I would get the packages in the mail, we would try to get together to see our treasures we received. It was so exciting !!!

I used my blocks for a charity event for a friend who had cancer. I wrote just the first name of the person who made the block on the corner of each block on the top so they could get credit for making the block. Even though no one knew any of theses ladies, I still wanted them to get credit for their beautiful work. Then I took several fabric markers with me and everyone at the event wrote a special message on the back to him.

I received a letter from his family with pictures of the front of the quilt and then several of the back with all the special messages written by his family and friends He used the quilt in the hospital and he told his family he felt truly loved by all the messages written.

Those blocks made in our swap and the messages wrote touched his life and his family forever. While he did loose his battle. His family has that quilt that will always remind them of their loved one, made by very special people. We call them "Quilter's".

I will pick my block and colors and PM you Cherie. I too, will made 7 to donate for the charity quilt

Gina

P.S. If you need help I'm right next door LOL!!

Cherie

I would love to be part of this if you will all have me.  I too like the idea of knowing whats ahead so that I can get things made way in advance.  I have just recently bought a lot of christmas fabrics ready to start making those chrissie pressies in plenty of time so will probably be sewing several nights a week now - would you believe Costco over here have all their Christmas decorations and gifts in already!!!!  I just want to know what's happened to Summer this years let alone start Christmas - lol

I have updated the first post. We now have 12 players!!!! Woohoo

I know everyone is anxious to get started so here is a suggestion. Get started on making the block you have chosen in the colors you picked. This way you will be ahead!!!!!

I will be posting the groups and block colors on the 20th. I know I can't wait, that for sure!

Sign-ups are open til Sept. 15th so, come on girls, we can get one more group of six. You know you want to play with us

Cherie
