I'm trying to post photos but so far it won't let me. I think tomorrow I will see if the file is too big and if so make them smaller.

Laura, I was in a hurry trying to meet the dealing. Lol. Your proper block should be there any day! Think it was mailed out Tuesday morning

(Karen) Traverse Cit, MI(Zone 5a)

Many of mine will be turned into placemats for Meals on Wheels. Thanks to Mittsy for the wonderful idea.

Even though I moved, I will still be taking them to the craft club in the senior park where I used to live, and I still visit often.

(Pat) Kennewick, WA(Zone 5b)

That's nice Karen. I hope to combine all of mine from several different Christmas swaps and make a throw for my sister, one for me and 2 or more lap tops for the nursing home where I see some of my clients. I'm sorting hem according to color and then making more blocks to fill in. The first 3 cut block I made I used Christmas fabrics. I bought a white background Christmas yesterday so there is NO excuse for me not gettng with the program and getting some finished projects turned out!

Lowell, IN(Zone 5b)

Great blocks all. Having trouble trying to post even text notes on DG lately.

(Pat) Kennewick, WA(Zone 5b)

Well that is frustrating Stuart!

I'm playing catch-up today. We were given some blueberries, and we ordered 2 boxes of peaches. We need to get them frozen/ canned and the house cleaned before I go crazy (VERY short trip).

(Karen) Traverse Cit, MI(Zone 5a)

Found this Oh-So cute winter block in my mailbox today. From Syrumani/Nichole, thank you very much. I love how the snowflakes, igloos and footprints go together so well.
Did the princess pieces work for you?

thunder, thanks sweetie..

I'm glad you guys like them. I know that looks like a fairly basic block, but when you start putting like blocks together, you get two different color + signs . . . really cool.

Karen - I still have plans for some of the princesses, but my daughter has seen them, and so it's "mommy can you make this" or "mommy can you make that". I think a few of them may still be used for what I originally intended . . . did you find the postage $ in your block?

FLStu - I know those are not technically civil war materials, but I did look online, and from what I could see, these materials I already had, and were fairly close to civil war-ish . . . and since you said "scrappy" . . . well, those are my scraps, etc.

ichole... they're perfect for my New Vintage quilt. Exactly what I had requested. Scrappy in the spirit of Civil War fabrics.

Longboat Key, FL(Zone 9b)

You know, I was in such a hurry to get them out, I forgot to take any pix! Maybe one of the others that got a red/white/green block will post a pic. All the blocks are in the same pattern, just with different colors . . .

Cocoa Beach, FL(Zone 10a)

This is the block i received from Nicole (Syrumani). Thank you Nicole. I love it. Worth waiting for.

in going through my blocks and chruning butter about them what to do with them...

I did find a possibility on P&B Textiles "Toomuchery" quilt but I didn't want the christmas quilt too big. Any Ideas other than placemats or runners.....

(Karen) Traverse Cit, MI(Zone 5a)

Helene, how about my favorite, a tree skirt?

(Barb) Manchester, NH(Zone 5a)

And there are always pillows!!!!

(Karen) Traverse Cit, MI(Zone 5a)

I'm making a skirt right now called a speedy spiral,free pattern from Sulky. It's for next grandson getting married in March. Tree skirt is shower gift. Will do quilt for wedding gift. Plus making brides gown.

Longboat Key, FL(Zone 9b)

here we go "brides gowns" that is soo much fun. This quilting separates the men from boys, I mean rip rip and rip, then you have it together it's up side down, then you think you have a pattern and it stinks in reality was nice in my head. Separates woman from girls....

What pattern will you use for wedding gift.? HD

I'm thinking I am going to frame some of my blocks to use as wall decor, as well as placemats, pillows, etc . . .

(Karen) Traverse Cit, MI(Zone 5a)

Haven't decided on pattern for wedding quilt yet. I have 2 quilts to make, promised one to newest granddaughter too(grandson's wife). Will go to TN for month of Feb. to do wedding sewing as I will also be making for great grand daughter as flower girl, and probably for another granddaughter as brides maid. If I don't sew hers I know I'll be doing alterations.
I have so many pretty 5" squares in blues & yellows I will do one of the quilts in D9P with those. Maybe use that 3 cut block for the other. Nothing to complicated at this point.

(Karen) Traverse Cit, MI(Zone 5a)

The thing I do love about living up here is the awesome quilt shop in town. I downloaded a coupon from their web site for 20% off "in stock" rulers. Wouldn't you know the one I needed had to be ordered? Guess what? They gave me the discount anyhow. They also want me to bring in the pattern so they can see what I'm doing, when I come to get my ruler tomorrow. I remember when I spent a winter up here a few years ago, they were so much help with a project I had going then.

(Pat) Kennewick, WA(Zone 5b)

Nicole, got the block, THANKS! I especially like the blue background candy cane fabric.

What a wonderful surprise to see you post Cheryl. We have missed you and I know I speak for all us when I say "Welcome Back".. How are you feeling now? Oh I'm just so glad to see you post!!!!!

(Cheryl) Wilmington, MA

I am feeling much better thank you. It has been crazy since April. I had to have some surgery so they did a chest xray and saw something spent my birthday getting a CT scan, It was fine I had my surgery, I lost one of my beloved dogs, and a new challenge with my Dad, who will be going through some intense treatments beginning Wed of this week. He had a bone marrow biopsy and they found he has multiple myeloma very tough. So on that note I am glad to be back and it has been so wonderfully cool here in New England and the best time to sew sew sew.
Cher
