This is the first one I was in when Fons and Porter had their Quilters Talk Forum there were 28 swappers which was a good sign up!! the theme was fall...earlier this year I also had done a swap of nine patches through a group that still exists that I have on my side bar....Quilters Last Resort. The nine patches are a wonderful memory of support that I needed at the time there were 30 swappers...I am starting to piece this quilt together with the 2 swap blocks...It is coming along pretting good.. I have nine patches as the corner stones for the sashing and I have the perfect boarder to go in all the fabric I am using is just from my stash...I will be done the top by the end of the week to post (not quilted mind you..I am not a super quilter!!)
The next one is a quilt a long I had done with the same group we were lucky to have a chance to find each other after the site went down to finish our quiltalong..I had never heard of this term before cyberworld was introduced to me. We picked blocks from a site Quilterscache and that would be a block we all worked and shared techniques on..
this other one below was done through a Yahoo group that closed as well and they we all went to Quilters Last Resort..This one is my favorite..I have finally found a layout that I can use for these wonderful blocks...I am hoping by the end of the summer I will have a few swaps done.
I will warn you this is not all of them but these are the ones that I am going to get together this is my goal for the summer plus the other BOM I am doing with Stitch in Heaven
I hope you have a chance to do a block swap on line. as you can see quilters are concious of their workmanship and try to make the blocks to size. The swap I am working on is going together like butter cause all the blocks are to size the nine patches and the blocks
I have just finished another set of 12 blocks for a canadian yahoo group that are cats but I am not allowed to show them till after Sept...some of the members view my blog..so I can't cheat.
next blog I will post the pics of my wonderful mini quilt I got and who it was from I have to download the pics...
Till later...thanks for visiting.. love your comments love your blogs..
