Great blocks..omg we should have a bet to. See who makes their quilt first...

(Pat) Kennewick, WA(Zone 5b)

Helene, I thought the block was a lot better looking in person than it was in the photo!! I had to enlarge it to see if it really was my block the colors were so distored! LOL

YES, I think "Mystery" should step up too but I will always honor her request. I'm sure she is grinning from ear to ear reading all your praise for her beautiful blocks!

Longboat Key, FL(Zone 9b)

Pat! No ? the block is beautiful will post a pic with all the others - it fits right in.
Today A bit busy with DD here.....

Re mystery: checked the size of your stitches - a bit different the mystery block. Then one other comes to mind but she always uses grey thread....so still mystery????

Cocoa Beach, FL(Zone 10a)

My sister, Patty got me connected to the internet and I was able to get my camera driver downloaded so I am gradually getting back to my computing. Haven't solved the email problem yet but working on it. It is a pain to have to go to the library to get your mail. I did buy a new Sony Vaio computer, sent it home with my grandson. He had brought his two year old HP with Windows XP. I just couldn't get used to the Windows 7 and have a low frustration level for all things electronic, so with his dad's blessing, we swapped. Our son, Rob has taken my old computer home to KY to recover my files and photos. I should get it back in November when we get together for Thanksgiving. I have purchased two 4 G flash drives and with back up my photos and files on them so this doesn't happen again. I wanted to share my pictures of the blocks that I have received since the computer crashed.
This is my block from Pat. Thank you Pat. It will be sewn into a row this week. Going to add sashing of white tone on tone. I want to thank everyone for that added bit of bling. My granddaughter Taylor is going to love this quilt. She turns 16 in August. Pat also included my block from the "Mystery" quilter, gotta love this group!

I received this one with charm squares from Bev (SewSassie). She embellished it with gold metallic thread. Very nice, thanks so much.

From Laura (House301) I received this crisp traditional block. Thank you. It will really pop when framed with sashing.

I've also received some blocks from the "Different" swap, and I'll photograph them and try to get them posted, too. I also "found" the fabric for Stu that I got at Keepsake. Can you belioeve it I actually had put it in a safe place, suitcase pocket, knowing my suitcase would be going to Florida. I'm taking no chances, going to mail it out while I have it in sight.

I got blocks from Pat, Barb, and Laura plus the mystery one. I had totally forgotten about this swap and was so glad to be reminded. Unfortunately I haven't been keeping track the way I usually so with a swap so I have NO IDEA who I have sent to nor who I have received from. Can't you all help me out?
I thought I was done with all of my commitments but want to be sure.

(thunder)Wildwood, FL(Zone 9a)

I got yours Janice ^_^

I have not sent any of these out yet...all are cut out and I am sewing them, today and tomorrow, and maybe one more day will be needed. then I will be mailing next pay check...I will send charms, with the ones in both swaps....

I got a bit concerned when you only listed the three above. I'm so glad you have it....

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Just trying to post as I receive them. I got yours on the 15th, and posted your block. They are all going to be so pretty when put together!

Lowell, IN(Zone 5b)

Taters. Had to look back to see what I had sent you. LOL. I think that with my next block received, I'm going to do a grouping of the blocks to this point as well as some of you have shared.
