I love reading about your traditions, melladh!

We sort of have a similar thing at our office:  we all usually have yogurt at 10 am and then at 3 pm, we have some sort of snack before going home...fruit, crackers, tea, or even left overs from our lunch.  Our office definitely believes in food breaks! Grin

Greetings Everyone,

It looks like all the blocks are shipped on. Some are waiting on them to come, but all have been sent out.

If you have received blocks and I do not have them checked off on the list please let me know.

Once everyone is checked off I will start doing feed back.

well and wonderment

Mine looks good, Carol!  My international packages have to get there and I am waiting on just one from international!  I hope they get here before Thanksgiving...I could use the time to put the blocks together! Grin

Homerof2, we've swapped enough times that you should know I'd never intentionally be mean.  Angry   Grin I haven't posted photos of your blocks for several reasons: 1) Haven't been able to get decent photos due to lighting issues, 2)My mouse died and my laptop doesn't like manual manipulations (it keeps deleting my reply posts - -aargh!), and 3) your blocks are some of the worst I've done, so I'm more than a little embarassed to post them. But since you're making such a fuss (LOL), I'll go post them now or at least I'll try. BTW I was tempted to just send you the extra fabric and let you make your own because I was so frustrated by the blocks. Can't tell you how many times I ripped out the seams.
Posted and they don't look bad, but a lot of corners are going to get chopped off when you try to join them to other blocks.

Good Morning,

I started to feed back for those that have sent and partners have received the blocks. If all four were done in your group then I went ahead and did your feedback.

So please if I have made a mistake in the tally of who has received please do let me know

well and wonderment

kbrison--don't feel bad...I was not 100% pleased with those same blocks...I did not notice until I took pictures that some of the points will be chopped off when joined as well...grrrrr....I wonder now if the measurements were a bit off since we both had the same issue...

You know, with that said, I will say that when I started joining this swap, I knew that with so many different levels of experience, that I would receive some blocks that would not be done the way I do it...and vice versa....but I have learned to adapt and seeing how well everyone else's mish-mashed quilts turned out really inspired me...

I love all the blocks with all of the little "quirks"...they are my favorite types of quilts...made with love and fun!

aw geez---I just looked at your blocks, kbrison...and they look darn good! Grin  I wish I had thought to mix the colors up more! geez--I am so uncreative!  I made all of mine the same! you guys really rock!

kbrison, if those are some of the worst you've done, I'm impressed how bad you are  Tongue   Cheesy   Grin  They look great!

Lesson learned - never, ever, ever pick this block again in this swap!  Sorry everyone!

I'll use the ones I'm receiving for a small quilt and find something different for upcoming rounds.

homerof2--I thought it was a lovely block!  I think when we get things off the internet, it is a crap shoot!  I like to try new things but sometimes you don't know how it will turn out!  I make notes on the patterns to adjust for next time...I think you can make a lovely quilt with those blocks!

I noticed that they look good against the Halloween blocks that cursive_queen is getting...so maybe you can combine blocks as well?

I know for myself, I am not skilled at triangle making...I need more practice doing the diagonal stitching, so I would go at that block again if you picked it! Grin

I think kbrison is brave for picking stars...lol...I bet you will have many with cut off points! Grin

I've made this block for myself and really liked it, that's why I chose it but I don't like being the one that you'll all talk about the next round..... remember that horrible block Homerof2 chose last round  Cry       Cheesy
