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)

Just posted photos of the last blocks I did for Carol and FoxyMama. I've enjoyed making almost all the blocks this round, although FoxyMama's gave me the most grief.  Undecided They were so-o-o easy . . . until I tried to add the white border to all those bias edges. Then I felt like I was making dresses for little girls . . . ruffles everywhere! Had to remove all the borders and start that part over, but I'm happy with the finished result.

I think I'm going to have to stop doing this swap. I'm never satisfied with just admiring everyone else's blocks; I always try out several of the blocks that someone else has requested. At this rate I'm going to have a zillion more unfinished quilt tops!  Grin Seriously though, I love the inspiration and challenge of this swap and hope to participate until I'm too old and blind to see!!!

I'm a late sender... but should be able to send tomorrow --  finally!  Our building's outgoing mail was apparently picked up by a moving company accidentally last week (we thought it was stolen) but it came back!  I' had started remaking blocks so I'll have a bonus block to throw in...but am pretty stoked that I'm not going to have to start from scratch!

I've received from everyone... so lovely!  I'm working on laying out this round's blocks with the last round's blocks... so much beautiful work ladies!!!

kbrison--I am so glad I was not the only one that hated those bias cuts! I read a tip on how to keep the edges from ruffling but could not find it, of course, when I needed it...they were lovely and some of my favorites to look at, but not to sew...

I really hated the stars and the pinwheels...I learned that I am not a precise cutter or sewer...but the challenge was excellent and I do hope to keep on improving my skills...

I have to hold up swapping here for a while as well since I have so many quilts to put together...last count was way over 20... Grin
