Hi Amelia, I'm one, if I ever get the darn things done. I'm getting closer though-ten done and the other six cut and ready to sew. I just hope no one looks at them real close because they've really been giving me fits. Now to tear myself away from this stupid pc and get back to work.

Hi Amelia, I'm one and I hope I get mine done. My sample block did not come out right so I had to find another one. Started a new sample block today and hope to finish it tomorrow. It better work or I don't know what I will do.

Hi Amelia, I'm one. This is my second quilt!! Scarey for you, huh? I've had a time getting my blocks 12 1/2 inches. I didn't realize you had to be a mathematician to quilt. Also had trouble with my sewing machine for awhile. I'm on #10, and finally getting the hang of it, and the machine is cooperating. Sure having fun, tho. Hope my blocks do justice to the quilts.

Hi Amelia, I am another quilt swapper. Gosh, I haven't even started mine! But, never fear, I will perservere! In His Grace, Sissy

Hey, Amelia Kay, how funny, I just sent an e-mail around to everyone becouse I was wondering how it was going. I've got mine done-Only becouse I thought If I was co-ordinating this I'd better make sure I got my stuff done! Also, the way things have been going around here, I was afraid something would come up if I waited too long. We had a few rainy days, so....Usually I'm terrible about procrastinating! I had to do two or three sample blocks before I got it right, and the first day I used the seam ripper more than the sewing machine!

I am glad to know that I am not the only one not done and just starting. I do my best work under pressure. I picked out the block, got my material and made my sample right away. Now everything is just sitting waiting for me. Mine will be there.

Hi all...I am so ashamed to tell you that I have NOT started mine yet. The garden and flower beds took a front seat here. I knew it would be that way. Tomorrow it is supposed to rain..hopefully I will get my templates made and a sample block put together. Soooooo...in my mind and heart I am still in!! In reality...oh my...I gotta a LONG way to go!!

Have a great day!

I am about half-way through. I need to be through pretty quick because my garden needs me! :~) Glad to see that everyone is hanging in there. We can do it! Can't we girls!?! Looking forward to seeing everyone's finished blocks! Have fun all!
