Here is the new thread for people who were on dial up. That way we can start posting pictures here without it taking forever to load.

So I started redistributing the blocks tonight and it looks like I will have to make 4 more so that a few of you do not get exact copies of a block. No big deal, I will just whip up a simple block real quick tomorrow.

They will be in the mail tomorrow or Saturday. Tomorrow I have a doctors appointment to find out the sex of our baby and maybe lunch with some friends. If we don't do lunch it should get done.

Nite, Michelle

If it's a girl, she can have a sweet little butterfly quilt. If it's a boy...I guess that would mean we'd have to do another block exchange. ^_~

Okay ladies I am all done! I do apologive in advance, a couple of the ones I made today were just a hair short, but I got to the point where I was pulling the hair out of my head and thought it best to just quit while I was still sane.

I hope everyone likes the blocks they receive. I tried to do my best to keep with a color scheme that your block was but about half way through that plan went out the window. They will be in the mail tomorrow so you should receive it at least by Wednesday.

Here is the batch I kept, minus my own

What a wonderful time for your family. Is your little girl excited about a new baby brother?

The blocks are extraordinary; I am so excited about seeing them in person. Mine were so pitiful but by being surrounded by such amazing work maybe you won't notice the the lack of skill. I am going to study each and every one of them before I offer my work for something like this again. LOL

Just wanted to tell you that I may not let you know when mine get here as I will be out of town for a couple of weeks. DH will be waiting for the package and saving it for me..

Thanks for the pictures, I forgot about the quilt when you told us about the baby. LOL

I plan to make a lap robe out of the squares. It should be cute. Can't wait to see the squares in person.

No problem. I mailed them out this morning and didn't notice until I was done paying that the mailman had sent them all first class. So for all of you that sent postage, I will be mailing back some change.

My little girl is too young to even know what is going on. She turned one on St. Patricks day. But I am sure she will notice when the little man is finally here!

Here is a close-up of the quilting - I had it done professionally. She used variegated thread to tie together all the different colors in the blocks and the sashing. It's a little small but I like it.

Hi everyone,
I'm still here, and have not completed my quilt yet, we moved that year from Southern California and I still have my squares in boxes that have not been unpacked yet. It sure is great to see a completed quilt.

Lulu, thanks for posting these photos and hopefully we can get a chain reaction going on this swap... I'll try to do something in the coming year when I'll be able to clear out some space to work in.
