11  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Quilt Block Swap Round 7 (Sign Ups CLOSED; Sendouts August 31) on: June 29, 2015 08:28:14 AM
All right - we had a few more sign ups this weekend!  So I have enough to close it out now if I were to participate in 3 groups.  On the one hand, that is a lot more sewing than I was planning on & might get dicey with two little ones...on the other hand, that is more quilt blocks for me.  Maybe I will torment you all with that Celtic quilt block idea I had.  Wink  lol  

Before I close sign ups, is anyone interested in signing up that is quietly lurking out there?  Or is anyone interested in participating in more than 1 or 2 groups?  I think I'll give it until EOD & then I plan to close sign ups first thing in the morning here in the Texas time zone.  I'm closing.   Smiley

I put you & kbrison as "interested" so I'd remember to wait to close it out.   Wink

Well I PM-ed some people from the last few rounds...4 days before sign ups officially close?  lol!  I expect it will be light because of summer though.

You know, I've been meaning to PM all the prior participants from last round. I normally do  -  I just haven't gotten around to it yet.  Undecided

Unfortunately, I am by the flooding - I live near Lake Grapevine.  Our neighborhood is totally fine, but the main route out of town is shut down from flooding, as is my "back road" for getting home.  Add in the construction in the area, and it's kind of the perfect storm of commuting nightmares.   Tongue  Luckily, my boss has graciously agreed to let me work from home until 2499 reopens.  And at least it's just inconvenience - it would be worse to live in the flooded areas for sure.  Although why they let people build in floodplains around here, I'll never understand.  

sloth - my first gut reaction to the Icky Thump block was "cool!"  My next thought was "oh crap - paper piecing!"  lol

I added everyone's block selections to page 1.

I could have sworn I hit "notify" on this thread and there are a bunch of new messages.  Doh!  Well I got sign ups from quaggy and Homerof2 but I think a couple of you are procrastinating. Wink

I was thinking 1.5" squares, which would be 12x12 and come out to 12.5" squares.   Grin

Right - a real scrap buster, so it seemed perfect for this swap...although you guys might hate me at the end for all the little pieces.   Cheesy

 I'm considering a block like this for this round:

I try to match people by experience levels and block choices.  But as long as you can sew a 1/4" seam, measure, press, and follow instructions  Smiley , I'd encourage you to give it a go.  It is a fun way to get some more experience and try blocks you might otherwise not try, and the regulars are a friendly, non-intimidating group of ladies. Most of the blocks people pick are fairly easy.
