I've recieved 7 so far, but I get so excited to put them all out I've been tossing the envelope as soon as I get inside! I just bought a book from the TP called Charm Quilt and I think it's all about this type of thing and the quilts that have been made. You might look for it online or at the bookstore. Adine I know I got yours yesterday, and a couple more that I forgot.

i think that this has been a fantastic way of getting to quilting after a quiet spell... it's also been a great way to get a diverse personality sampling of fabrics.

i'd be up for another fabric exchange, but maybe in a couple/few weeks? i'll be out of town all next week, starting this friday, so count me in if anything happens. i'm not a big fan of pink, though I have a ton of pink scraps from a quilt i made my g'ma. i'd love a blue exchange... i wonder if we could get enough people involved?

What if it was red and then you could go the lighter shade of the spectrum pink ) if you wanted? I shouldn't sign on to another project as this one might take me a while, I don't know. But I would join too if there was another one.

So, has anyone recieved the last two? I still have only recieved eight, and would like to get started. Did anyone keep track of who already sent theirs so we can contact the last two?

I shipped to everyone on the original list--there were 10 names on it and so far have also only received 8. Nothing in the mail today. I am only missing from one.

I'm missing from one mama on the first list, and the second add-on. I know their names but not their usernames... but they're in Rio Rico, AZ & Cowpens, SC...

motherkins.... which one are you still waiting for?

I honestly don't know who I'm missing--I didn't keep track. I know that I got them from Celeste, Adina, Kerrie, and Shalena--those addresses stuck with me. I just don't know who I could be missing.

pixie-n-hertwoboys~ thanks for giving us your status... I know things can come up... just so we know to expect some from you still. And keep us posted. I know it might seem like a big job but all in all it only took me 30 min to cut & divide.

Is April out there?

Did you receive from her, motherkins?

I really want to get started on this! It'll be my first quilt, I've only done patchwork blocks to sew onto other things, like bags, etc. Does anyone plan to cut their blocks to make anything else? I remember earlier mention of a pinwheel quilt. I was thinking of adding borders to make it larger but with the variety of fabrics it would be hard to come up w/something to match. I really want to lay them all out & decide from there. What are you going to do?

Pixie and Rainbowmoon- Thanks for letting us know. My MIL is coming next weekend to help me figure out the quilt top since it's my first real quilt project, so if it would be possible to get those by then that would be great!

rainbowmoon~ did you send yours out on the 14th?

pixie-n-hertwoboys.... how about you? have you sent yours out?
please post here & tell us what's going on.

I know things can come up, but it's been more than a month so it seems fitting that we come up w/a deadline! get this show on the road, y'know?

I'm anxious!! Am I the only one?

I've been spending a lot of time over on the trading post & this definitely counts as a swap, let's do feedback!!

I've got itchy fingers too!

I'm still waiting on yours rainbowmoon. Hopefully it will be here either today or tomorrow.

We should definitely do feedback, as this is the first time that I've done anything like this.

Has anyone thought about what they are going to do, pattern wise, for the quilt yet? This is going to be my first quilt of this size.

i agree! i know we all deal with life stuff, and i think we've all been waiting around for all of the fabric to come in. it's only fair that people who sign up make good on their agreement to the group.

it's my first swap too, so i dont know anything about feedback, but it sounds like the right thing to do!

Pixie~ I think since you signed up after we started, we all had the option to send to the 11th person, which would be you, I think. Any one who did should have contacted you for you addy. I know I did!

So would the originator of the swap have all the usernames so we could do feedback now? I think I only have physical names and addresses.
