I hate it when I have to sew seams shut that have come open, but I do it and have done it in all of the swaps.  For regular blocks, I find that doing a tighter stitch along the edges helps.  Also, I try not to trim too close to the edge...I would rather snip threads later than to double stitch...

I think for this swap, the undoing of seams is not going to be fun if the stitches are too tight...not sure what the solution is.  Now that I know how to press the seams, I will press to one side as I do think it will help with the seams opening.  good point, craftylittlemonkey!

Averia, we made 12 1/2" blocks for donniesgirl that each contained 100 same-color squares. Making a shades of blue block for you would be no problem.

Need to get my questionnaire filled out before life gets crazy again.

Hmm I might have to think about this one.... Bonnie Hunter was actually at my guild a year ago and this is pretty appealing to me.....

Do I just use scraps I have or am I to stick within a preference of a partner?

I really appreciate that folks are willing to accommodate my blue obsession. Unfortunately I may be waiting till the last minute to sign up because I have fallen way way way behind in my Christmas crafting and December starts tomorrow... seriously, it is December tomorrow.

"Yes, but Christmas is Dec. 25th so that still gives you 22 days to sew after Christmas. Sign up! You know you want to," said the evil quilter with a grin.
