I received some great squares.  Um, maybe I'm just a dork, but I'm not sure who they're from. The colors are exactly what I wanted.  My cute little card is signed Vanessa, AKA Kittymom13, our fearless leader.

Great squares from A2K and meganlorraine.  

Next up are squares and strips from Missing Willow.

Now some great squares from muzikalcheezegal.

Here are the ones I found waiting for me in my Saturday mail, from princesspimp81.

Now, I'm guessing that some of you may have wondered at my color choices.  Here are some possible layouts with the squares I've got so far...

X's or squares, depending on how you look at it.

and zig zags

Well, yeah, I did get mailing info in a PM.  And, I suppose if I'd been brainiac enough to think of cross referencing I could have figured it out.  Notice, in my post, I did say I was a dork Cheesy  I wasn't too worried, I figured the mystery would be solved in the end.  Anyway, the blocks are great! I can't wait to get more so I can see the quilt start to take shape.

I started sewing a couple blocks.  I need to go back and write down who wanted what colors, then I'm going full steam ahead with these little puppies.

I'd love to do a personal swap for this knit Death Flake hat
