Hi all ~ I'm busy putting together my top for this round.  I've added sashing to all the blocks I've received so far, but I haven't stitched them all together yet so I can move them around still as those last few stragglers come in!

I really think I'll get the quilt done before the sisters deadline!  I still have to finish the label yet, I'm paranoid about misspelling a name or two so I've put that off for last! But I'm going to piece the label into the back (which will get quilted over slightly but not enough to disrupt the names) that means that the label will be good and stuck!

If you want to see my latest progress check it out on my blog (I would load a picture, but my camera stayed on vacation) so it's a crummy camera phone pic, but it will give you an idea of how amazing all your work is!!

I can't wait to show you finished pics of it hanging at Sisters!!  Yahoo!

Now, I just have to finish it! Grin

Yes definatly no hand stitching from me! Geez...that many of the same block....must have been a popular one Grin

With three woven ribbons blocks it works out great!  I'm going to make one more and use them as the four corner stones to my quilt!  I think it will frame this sample quilt quite nicely!

UPDATE

Well, I'm back from my roadtrip (6am this morning!).  Tired from the trip home but it was worth it.  I should have updated everyone before I left.  But it was a mad rush for me to get my blocks to the post and pack for a family of five and out the door on time.

I mailed everything before I left.  One item was returned (Sorry, I didn't know until I returned from my trip) So everyone should have received their blocks from me except Glitter Girl, and those two blocks will go out tomorrow.

I had a lot of fun on this swap.  I also learned a lot about swap etiquette in a swap like this.
  • providing a return address is particularly helpful!  (the sticky ones were really nice) I'll do this next time.
  • email everyone concerned with updates about blocks mailed and blocks received.
  • reserve my spot in the gallery early so I'm not the renegade on page three that everyone forgets about!  :-)

Thanks everyone, this was a blast!  I hope to have this one done and quilted in time for the Sisters Outdoor Quilt show.  I'll keep you all updated!
Cheers,
Dionne

Some one made me a beautiful block by hand!  Completely by hand!

(this is me astounded and amazed because I DON'T do hand stitching)

Unfortunately I'm not sure if it's Poerava or ChinaRockFish.  You see I got three identical blocks (woven Ribbons) and I marked them as received but didn't take a close look until last night when I went to sew the sashing on (Have to be ready for the Sisters Quilt show doncha know)

That's when I realized that one of the blocks was completely stitched by hand!  I know that it wasn't Glittergirl because she hasn't mailed off her block yet, so that only leaves Poerava or ChinaRockFish! 

All I can say is WOW!  Hats off to you!

Cheers,
Dionne

Yes I do have that fabric!  I will try to get it in the mail today or this evening.  The block looks great so far.

Yahoo!  I'm so glad you have the fabric!  (and that you like the block so far!)

I have 2 blocks to finish for Glittergirl (oh those solids!)  Wink
One block to finish for 1b1g1k

And one pending for LibbyK  (will post a pic of the fabric as soon as I get home from work)

All the rest have either found their way home, or are patiently waiting to be posted!
Cheers,
Dionne

PS - This was lots of fun!
