The scotty was the one I was MOST worried about but it wasn't bad at all! 

I'm happy to say I'M DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  All packages mailed out about half an hour ago   Grin

I have done more new techiques and patterns in this swap than I ever would have thought possible.  My blocks aren't perfect, but I'm really proud of them and happy wth how they turned out.  I'm uploading pictures now to finish my gallery.  Whew!  What a ride  Cheesy

I am starting to lay out my quilt design for my blocks...I think the auction is in the week before Thanksgiving so I don't want to wait too long...I think I might have enough blocks and filler blocks to do two quilts!  I would love to see what you guys do with all your blocks! Grin

All photos are now in the gallery!  103 different fabrics plus solid white - only one duplicate and that's because I goofed and used the same yellow in two of kbrison's blocks.  My OCD wanted to redo the starflower to get back to NO duplicates but I resisted  Wink

This has been such a great swap with such beautiful blocks.  I've definitely been inspired to try some of the blocks others swappers chose!  I'm with you always, I'd love to see the blocks all together and what the tops will look like. 

I have some project ideas in the works - a party hats oopsie is going to go with the two solid modern strings from carolmb and become a runner, two scotty blocks are going to bookend a runner with the Christmas scotty fabric I have and I'm going to start a green garden fence quilt like Enginerdlisa's with the four oopsie blocks to get it started! 

This was a great swap to get me back into the quilting grrove - thanks to all my partners foor swapping!  I had a blast and I'll definitely be on the lookout for the next round  Grin

Sent (just under the wire).  I was working on my last block yesterday and thought I would have plenty of time to get everything together and write little notes to everyone about how much I have enjoyed this swap.  Then, in rather stupid moment I lined up my ruler to trim up a perfect 12.5 square and sliced down the wrong side to made an 11.5 inch block  Tongue ) (Admittedly that was the second time I have done this during this swap).  So I ended up having to redo the block and, while I did still get everything together, I got too tired to write notes.  
So, since I did not get a chance to say it, I had a great time creating these blocks and am really inspired by all of your guy's quilting skills.

Anyway, I posted the last two blocks in my gallery.  I am pretty proud of the last one for carolmb (after I redid it Roll Eyes) because it uses 8 different colors.

There are some fabulous blocks showing up in the gallery in mass!

Fontiua, I think I missed the blocks you made for me before, but the fabrics are lovely and the fabric on the blocks you made for sparkledust look like sherbert, I just want to eat them up.

jungrrl, I love how well the blocks you made for Melladhs capture that deep ocean feeling.

kbrison, the "state" stars you created are awsome!

Foxymama, your tone on tone red pinwheel and yellow star make me want to request tone on tone quilt blocks (maybe next time)

My gallery is completely updated!

This swap has let me know firmly that I am not as great a quilter as I thought.  Tongue I never thought I was great but I thought I did ok until now. I hope my blocks are alright!

Also, I know I'm normally pretty quiet in swap threads, but I feel like I've been much more so during this swap and today I was finally able to post part of the reason why. I've been going through the whole application and interview process for this and trying to figure out transition plans for all my stuff here, as well as finishing up my derby season. So yea, not an excuse, but an explanation of where I'm coming from!  Smiley
