This is an ongoing swap for the Quilt Block Swap with a twist.This is the 4th Round and i will also be posting the 5th round as well.So please do sign up for both.The reason is that i know some of you will be needing the extra time.Due to vacations and personal reasons.You will still have the same amount of time as usual.The only difference is that you will know your partners now rather then later.

This is for all you Fabric Artists out there.If you are new to making quilt blocks this will be a great start.

You will make 1 fabric quilt block 8 x8 for 1 swap partner.You can make the quilt block however you like.Here is the twist.If you crochet or knit you can still join.I read a very interesting article in a mag today.You would crochet or knit a quilt block and stitch the block to a muslim or fabric background.This makes for an interesting finished quilt block wouldn't you say.

The swap generated enough interest for us to do this every month so now your quilt blocks will be big enough for a wall quilt to hang.

I am asking that everyone if they would please sign their block in some way.Just a little corner ect..

This has been so much fun and i have made so many friends.I so appreciate each and every one of you and thank you for the wonderful opportunity.

We will truly have a quilt of friendships.I do ask that if you are not in my yahoo group to please get in touch.It does not generate email just one to let you know what is going on.

If you would like to correspond with others then let me know and i will turn it into a public group where we can all chat about our blocks.

I'm send out out your block later today. I had to do something other than housecleaning today, so I opted to get my blocks done.

Would anyone be willing to make an extra block to swap with me for one of mine? I will then send that block to my partner. I can't think of any other way to keep from sending Windchimes one of my blocks three months in a row!

TerryF 06/ 3/2007 #

suzylucie, I can do that - will pm you.

Today I have received a beautiful block from Barb (slepping traveller). Colors of the fabrics and design all are perfectly done. Thanks a million from the heart, Barb. You are my Quilting Hero:) Lovies,

I'd be happy to do a swap 1-1 with sleeping traveller. Just let me know.

I seem to be having problems getting a block to Turkish Delight too. I've mailed two and so far neither have reached her. Anyone else had problems with mail to Turkey?

Dearest SewFun (Laura), Your Amazing Block arrived right now today, which was enough beautifully made over my expectations! Yeap, the first one has not arrived me that I have no idea why, but this one arrived me safely and sound! Cherry up please:) THANK YOU SOOOOOOO MUCH from my heart for your kind dedicated time to make it for me. Plus, I love also dragonflies! How thoughtful and kindest one to attach my favorite dragonfly with your gorgeous block! Thank you soooooooo much for brigthen my day today.

Lovies, T. Delight

SewFun, To reply your question... if anyone else had problems with mail to Turkey?

For these quilt Block swaps, I have not received block from craftersbag (Melissa) and then also your block. All other blocks have reached me safely. Melissa and you have made your 2nd blocks to me for this reason, sorry for that but I have no idea why both of your first blocks have not reached me?!

I appreciate your both kindness to send me your 2nd blocks, thanks a lot for your kind udnerstanding.

Lots of love,

T. Delight
