Lois, you were correct to begin withSmile Blocks are Due on the 15th of each month, not sent by the 15th. January got a little mixed up between sickness and personal issues. As I stated in a previous post everyone should have their block by Jan 25th.

With everyone working on their February block now and in the mail between Feb 1 and Feb 10, we will be back on schedule for all sisters to receive a block on or before the 15th of Feb.

Hugs,
Dianne

Well girls I have not been downstairs in 3 weeks but, tonight I was cranking them out. They are looking great. My sister is really going to be a lucky little girl.

Doesn't look like ill be going to work tomorrow either. We have already received 8 inches and counting of snow and my poor husband is just heading out to plow the street and everyone's drive way. He is such a great guy. I am truly blessed.

Most humble apologies to my Mystery Sister. After complaining about "no block yet" for several times, if finally arrived yesterday! I should have gotten on here immediately to let her know that it came...but, you know, life happens.
I've taken a photo of it so if I can get my photo shop to work right, I'll either post one or send it to fleur to post for me.
BTW, it's beautiful and the fabrics are exactly what I hoped my Sister would use.


Sometimes I laugh so hard tears run down my leg! Lois

Okay Lois, "bold and bright and sassy", is that a reflection of you? It is a very pretty block.

Three more to be delivered and the tracking for them states they are on the way Big Grin

... it is indeed a happy looking block. And I will assemble this quilt in memory of my daughter. She loved pink .. was a happy bright cheery woman - and the lovely choice made my by MS is so perfect I wish I could hug her right now. Definitely worth the wait.

Mark me as delivered! Yahoo!! And I LOVE it! This block is gorgeous!

Secret Sister... The fabrics are awesome on the color card! Maybe dismiss the white since you have more than 5. And the color gray you have here is perfect! Your search is over. Smile

I am happy happy happy.. and I love that your points come out so well and will not be lost when I sew the blocks together.

Great job!

Even though I've got more than enough blocks in my to-do book for this exchange, I couldn't resist the urge to search for more. Found at least 10 more at about.com.quilting... now my final decisions will be harder than ever! lol

I'll take the picture of my block tomorrow when the sun is out (hopefully) & the light is better!

Happy Stitching All!
Susan

I have picked out 12 blocks and I have picked out the material for 5 of them. I have come across another block that is just awesome and I think I'm going to swap one out. This is a fun swap. I can't wait to see my next block. Thank you for hosting Fleur55 this swap it is awesome.
It's what I needed to jump start me again.
