So I was going to just pick my spot (here is good) And then as I get squares, snap photos and put them all in this post. Is that okay so we don't have 300000 pages of squares and a possibility of loosing track?

First one is in for me from (of course!) Kittymom

Beeeeeeeeautiful. Purple is my favorite color Smiley

Got some more beautiful (and funny) squares today!!

Funny from MissingWillow- (I love the chicken/egg/cow square literally made me laugh out loud)

From Muzikalcheezegal- I love the numbers fabric and the gray background/swirly color one. Beautiful squares Smiley

From PrincessPimp81- I got half a skeleton! I know you guys are jealous Smiley

Please let me know if I mixed up who sent what. I'm worried that I may have  Huh THANKS YOU GUYS!

The rest of the stack... minus one set not yet arrived!
From Rockcavemom (botton two)(I think...) and redstar13 (top 2)

From top- Southern flower (I think may have gotten switched with Rockcavemom) bottom-cxcaitly

From: top- kwiltykate bottom- Disco Queen Highness

And from: left- Tynwia and right- Melmakespretty!!

Last I have the ones from Lissablair... I think... I think maybe rock cave mom, southern flower, and Lissa's may have gotten mixed around. I'm very sorry ladies. I couldn't help mixing them up!!!

Thank you guys a bunch. I am loving every single square. Sorry it took so long for photos!

My spot! I received two envelopes today, I'll be posting later Grin

Sorry I'm so late to post, I've been really busy and my schedule hasn't allowed me to be available to take pictures in daylight  Undecided

The first set is from our lovely organizer Kittymom13:

Love them! And thank you for the extras Smiley

Next we have two pairs from A2K and Meganlorraine:

I especially love the inverse fabrics used in the top left one  Grin

Thank you so much, hopefully I'll be ready to ship mine out soon!


I swear I'm still around! I've been following the pages, but haven't had time to post until now because of my new job (yay!), but I'm here to set things right!

I sent mine out on the 20th, so those who haven't received should receive soon!

In no particular order, here are the blocks I've received so far:

Top: Tynwia (Thank you!)
Bottom: Missing Willow (Thanks for the extra strips!)

Top: Southern Flower (Thanks for the extra strips!)
Bottom: Princesspimp81 (No backing square - Impressive technique!)

Top: Lissablair (Thank you!)
Bottom: Rock Cave Mom (Thanks for the extra strips!)

I received these today:

Top: Redstar13 (Do I see dinosaurs? Love it!)
Bottom: Discoqueenhighness (I love the middle strip on the right one!)

Thank you so much everyone for an amazing swap! I can't wait to get the rest so I can start getting it all put together  Grin
