cool! glad you like your block, gordongirl! I really liked working with your pretty fabrics!

John, your block for Poerava is really really cool! I can totally see the basket of tulips and it's beautiful! perfect piecing!

Thanks, but I purposely cropped it so that you couldn't see my crazy-a** edges ... they need some trimming, but I'll be sure to do it before I return the block!  Those little tulips were small, and I'm not great with small pieces.  But I felt like it was a great match for the fabrics.

I added a picture of the block I made for Klum78.

I know that Glittergirl is making a friendship star block, and normally I wouldn't duplicate a pattern, but I started cutting out the block I had planned to make ~ only to discover I was about a 1/4" short of the fabric needed.  But by that time I had already started cutting your fabrics.  So I had to figure out what I could make with the pieces cut and with the remaining fabrics.

I hope you aren't too disappointed!!   Cry  I also ended up with some bonus 3.5" half square triangles with your fabrics though, if you can use them let me know.  I'll send them along with your block and leftover fabrics!

Gordongirl ~ your block for klum is very pretty! her fabrics are so beautiful like that with the pretty flower in the middle.

LibbyK ~ I love your house block for Ashley!! it's very cute and her fabrics are gorgeous! I would love to make house blocks too! what pattern did you use or did you make up the pattern?

I lied... I had time to make a block for KRB last night! thanks for sending so much fabric! I'm sending a lot of it back too.

For the house block I just drafted the pattern on graph paper and followed that.  The parts with the door and windows are both 6" square, to give you a sense of the proportion.

A long while ago someone asked what kind of iron I use and I never responded...  I have a Proctor and Silex iron that I bought a Big Lots for under $10 about six years ago.  I cannot believe it has lasted so long and served me so well.


If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.

ahhhhh libbyk! That block for me is so adorable. I wanna live in a house that looks like that Cheesy

and I meant to but forgot to say thank you to whoodedoo_5 for my lovely block aswell! and to the boyfriend for liking my fabrics Tongue SOmehow you always manage to use all the fabric without making it look all disjointed..yay!

and thatbluesea, I love your fabrics! That is my favorite color combination and what I wanted to use for this swap, but couldn't find enough fabric I liked. I can't wait to see all your blocks together!

There are tons more blocks that I oohed and ahhed over in the gallery, but they slipped my mind at the moment. I'll have to open up 2 browser windows so I can properly comment later Tongue

I'm working on getting my blog up, check it out! Smiley

Libby, I too love your house block!  SOO-OO cool!  Kinda makes me want to do a full house quilt -- see how every person interprets a house differently and make a funky little village.  Hmmmm ... ... ... maybe for LQS5 ... ??    Wink
