Sendouts December 15

This is not a traditional gallery, we will be posting pics of what we make, not of what we receive.  Please claim a spot.

Everyone please make one post that will be your personal gallery post that you will keep adding your pics to as you make blocks for your partners.  After everyone has a gallery, then we can start chatting about what is posted, just so we have all of the galleries at the beginning, k? I'll let you know when all the galleries are ready.   Chat away~

Here is the list for me to check off of who has created their gallery post:

Left with unfinished edges, as per her request, but each side is at least 12.5".

sloth003: Every time I turned around my cat was trying to nap on these... so the photo is a bit messy. I did re-iron them. NOTE: There are 2 more blue blocks... I trimmed 1 green too small so I sent an extra set.


Updated 12/20: Waggonswest: still working on yours. Finished!!!! Finally.... I can't believe how much un-stitching and re-sewing I had to do on all of these blocks. Not to mention the one I had to completely re-do because of cutting through the middle while trimming.  Hope you love them!!

Reserved for post of blocks as I get them done. Am so excited!


Okay It was looking far to messy for me, Will fix and add the pics back in some kind of order
Okay Will just add the pics of those that I am sending to the Persons. And then perhaps thumbnails to those that didnt turn out very well, as soon as I figure out the table settings to format them at the bottom or something, was just too mixed up

MAREMARE

The two That didn't turn out right, Wrong size, and one was off center to boot.lol





First Pinwheel, I did go ahead and trim the 1/4 that it was over all the way around, if you do not want this one let me know and I will gladly do another to replace it, my husband had suggested I trim it and give you the option of taking it or not.




The Second of the Pinwheels I managed to get to turn out right. The only trimming was a slight squaring up.



Third Pinwheel: again I trimmed slightly to square it up.



By far the easiest of the pinwheels to do, I changed the way I was doing and it was a joy to make!!


ECLETIC DREAMER

The one came out just slightly under size, not sure why, one of two things come to mind. The ruler slide ever so slightly, or I was off just slightly on the seam somewhere


The first of the Logcabin to finish, I do hope it is "boyish"



Second, if you look at the baby image in the center, the child is "signing" I fall in love with this little guy, I wish the shop had, had more of it.



Block#3
I hope you like it, It was just kinda scrappy using what I had in the bin LOL


SLOTH003

First one done!
Please let me know if the colors are okay?
Another first time block for me
I enjoyed doing this block, It came together quickly and playing around with the colors was fun


Block 2



Block3



WAGGONSWEST

First try at making anything Wonkey LOL:
Am not sure I am getting this Wonky thing, but I am trying. I am also trying to do you accent block, am sure you are going to get tons of houses.

Please do let me know if they are okay



Block 2
Just in case no one but me can tell, its dragons on a swingset LOL


Block3
Well I ended up doing a House, I could not for the life of me think of anything else to do.

HOMEROF2--DONE-AND MAILED/RECEIVED!

This was my trial run of one of Homerof2's Card Trick Block.  I love it!
I am going to have to figure out why it is not 12.5 inches, so out with my calculator...I already did a scant 1/4 inch seam with my computerized sewing machine, so it has to be in the cutting...look for try #2 soon! Cheesy

Cheesy

OK--this first block turned out a tad (maybe 1/8 inch) too small...figured out that it was my ruler so I made a slight adjustment!  Homerof2--I will send it to you anyway, so if you use it, you will have to make a slightly smaller seam or maybe you can use it for a pillow! Cheesy

Anyway, here are the three that turned out!  All fabrics are from stash, so this made me happy!




I decided to use the scraps to make a scrappy log cabin for my own quilt.  I think I am going to do one using the fabrics for each partner...what a nice memory they will be! Cheesy


donniesgirl--DONE and mailed

Here are the holiday blocks I made for donniesgirl.  Six and one test.(which I forgot to take a picture of... ) BEFORE cutting up (these are super easy and give such big impact!)


Loved playing around to see what they will look like mixed up..LOVE IT! Cheesy


Sloth003--DONE AND MAILED/RECEIVED!

These were fun but challenging...Hope the colors are alright...I used what I had on hand..

Here they are all in a pile!

Block 1:

Block 2:

Block 3:

Block I made for my own scrappy quilt out of the fabrics I used:


More for sloth!



And, the block I made for myself using the fabrics in sloth's blocks! Cheesy


MAREMARE DONE AND MAILED

Pinwheels !!  Thanks to carolmb for the fabulous tutorial!!
Blues:

Lime greens:

My favorite--and thanks to Maremare for sending me some lovely oranges! Cheesy (I did buy one of them for her other blocks... Cheesy)


I love this block so much I am using for another project!  It is perfect...

Wonky blocks for Mare...most of the orange is what Mare sent me since I did not have a lot of orange...it is now a big favorite!






PEARLIEPIE
I love this block...it is tough but so much fun!  I am going to use it in the next round! Cheesy

Before I squared them up. I love them so much that I want to keep them! I think I have enough fabric to make my own though.

I don't have any real holiday fabric, so I hope these work!

And a shot of one of the squares after I cut them up and played with them

The points on one don't exactly line up, which annoys me, but it's an extra anyway Smiley
