The tracking is correct. I received blocks today from Quilter Jen and bjeannes. I have lots of pretty hearts in my living room.
I don't have a plan for my heart blocks yet but sure am looking forward to seeing them!! I am sure they are all very striking with the black backgrounds...
Sending my blocks tomorrow. I have about 30 minutes left on one block and then they are DONE!! My personal computer ungraciously died a couple of weeks ago. Haven't had time to look for a replacement so I am using my work computer. Sorry for the lack of communication. I'll send the tracking number. Enjoy!
Great to hear from you Jane - sorry about the computer problems - I know how that can be.
Ladies - I will be switching out the blocks Sunday afternoon after my 5k walk and will mail Monday after work. Hopefully you will all have them by the end of next week.
I am planning to turn mine into a wall hanging with 3 x3 blocks. Haven't decided if I am going to use a novelty heart fabric for a border or a tone on tone fabric for the border, but I will wait for the blocks to come. I am leaning towards a final fabric so the hearts show up

kmouse - so sorry to hear you were in the hospital - short stay or not, that is not a good way to spend your time. Hope you are feeling better. I will not be swapping these out until Sunday so Saturday's mail is just fine.
Take care of yourself!
Tisme, Quiltaholic and Handie Ann - thanks for letting me know, I will keep a look out for them.
Ely is the only one I have not heard from - I will send her an email tonight - I have not seen her on the boards since she talked about leaving for her trip.This message has been edited. Last edited by: headielamar,
Ely will be along any time to update her status.. I was on the phone with her just a second ago and was reading the forum while we were chatting.. I told her you were wondering about her..
HEADIELAMAR SORRY I HAVE NOT POSTED MY WILL BE IN THE MAIL TOMORROW. I HAVE VICITED HERE BUT I AM SO VESSY AT WORK WITH CENSUS AND 3 EL--ET--ION
Ely - good to hear from you - how was the trip? Q is going to call you today for me.
Q - thanks for the phone call this morning.
I am sure people will post pictures when they receive their blocks.
I received pretties today from Chesapeake Jane and Handie Ann!!
I will keep a look out!
Ladies - my doorbell just rang and there were three lovely packages from kmouse, Quiltaholic and Ely/Syssy. Thank you ladies for everything!!!
Q - I am keeping one of the blocks you asked me to keep but not for the reason you asked it. I am keeping it because it is sooooo clever and cute. I have wanted to do that design as a stencil on my hard wood floors for awhile. You are too hard on yourself.
I am off to the tattoo shop and hopefully tisme's blocks will be in the regular mail which usually comes around 4pm my time. I think I am two hours behind most of you now that we jumped forward an hour.
I am so glad they arrived before sorting and so is Elizabeth. We are chatting right now and I told her that they were there.
I am glad you like that one and if I had've had time I would have re-stitched it. Might still do that.. I am glad I remembered those videos.
My mail just arrived and Tisme's blocks were delivered. That means I have received everyone's blocks. Thank you so much to everyone for getting your blocks here on time and for the 100% participation!!!!
I will swap them out tomorrow and will mail on Monday after work.
oh great! I just got back from Lancaster after 3 days of shopping and quilt shows, was worried when I saw mine did not come. So very glad they made it.
I am very happy to say all the packages are in the mail headed back to all of you. Please comment on this thread when you have received your blocks so I know they have all been received. I do have tracking numbers for some if needed.
As soon as you get your blocks - feel free to post pictures.
I got mine today too!! They are all great!!
Thanks for doing this Lisa!
That must be some kind of record!! I can't believe they made it all that way so fast. If you got yours others must have gotten theirs.
I will list everyone here and remove your name as you receive:
Everyone has received!!!!!This message has been edited. Last edited by: headielamar,
Will we get to see any photos of the blocks?

I will post photos tonight - everyone else is welcome to post photos whenever they can.
Mine didn't come yesterday. Maybe today!
You can scratch my name off the list - my blocks got here today. And what a nice selection I got! Thanks, everyone, for all your hard work. 'preciate it very much.
Sometimes I laugh so hard tears run down my leg! Lois
You would have thought the ones that stayed on the west coast would have arrived at least a day earlier than the ones on the east coast!?! I can't figure out the post office. I send to my Mom in Arizona and it can take up to two weeks to get to her.
I thought I was going to use the blocks to make a lap quilt for myself but I just found out a close friend of mine is having major surgery next week so now I have decided they will be used for her. Since I was in both groups I might keep a few for myself.
You will never figure out the PO not too long ago I ordered something from the east coast that I was able to track the shipping and the package went to Anchorage AK before making it to Arizona

Thank you for the beautiful work. My blocks arrived today in Chesapeake Virginia. This was my first swap of any kind and I didn't know what to expect. Plain Jane here was way too simple, you all did such creative work I feel overwhelmed. Thank you also to our wonderful coordinator for managing this coast to coast project. Two groups was no easy task!
Wohoo! I love that everyone is getting their blocks back so quickly. I just walked in the door, windswept, cold and hungry. I will be back after I get myself together to post pictures of the blocks I kept.
I was in both groups - here is group 1 - please excuse my bad photography.
Here is group 2 - now to start making the quilt tops.
Woo Hoo I got my blocks Wow what a great job by everyone. Thanks to all and to Lisa. Mary
I bet those that were in this swap are so tickled! These are beauties. Great work everyone.
What a wonderful assosrtment of hearts! Thanks to all in Group 2, the hostess, and Group 1 also for participating. With this experience, I can really appreciate all the design and workmanship in each of the ones I received. Very creative. Thank you.
