    Very nice, I have a group of ladies that we swap quilt blocks and I'm the swap mistress and if your interested check us out. Here is our latest link and swap we are working on, but we love for anyone to pop in and join in on the conversations you don't have to join a swap. Hopefully we will see you there.

    I have just purchased a long arm quilter and am dying to try it out, finishing up tops so I can quilt them together. What other works have you done?

    wow very pretty, what pattern did you pick for the quilting I can't see it very well, I still have trouble picking the quilting pattern,

    ok opinion, here is a top I'm working on with the placement of blocks and am thinking about omitting some blocks, the ones that seem to hit you in the face, can you tell which ones I'm talking about? Or did I incorporate them well?

    How did you make your pinwheel block? Is this one hand quilted too?

    Do either of you do paper piecing or AKA foundation piecing? I have just learned that technique and I truly love it.

    It's too depressing, it's like failure in fabric, I'll never finish it, it's a shame you people don't live nearby, I could hand it on to somebody to finish. It's an amish churn dash style pattern.
