I won, I won, I finally won. Yes, I won the September lotto at About.com. So far I have received about half of the blocks with 20 more to come. The block is called Cracker Block (though I don't know why). Looks like it will end up a children's quilt top that I will send to Mary for finishing and donating. Nice colors!
I might also mention that the CYOC swap at HGTV is over. I did not have enough blocks to do much with so I traded a few more with about 4 swappers. Still there is not enough so I signed up for the next CYOC swap. The last 2 swaps went pretty well, even with blocks that were too small and some with some really crappy fabric. I am not so sure about this one. There are quite a few swappers requesting 30's prints and I have had to order some fabric as I don't have enough in my stash for that many blocks. The current batch of swappers are pretty specific in their requests. This color and brand of fabric in the center string, with such and such color on one side, with such and such color on the other side, with corner blocks measuring this much. One of the gals even went so far as to ask for this color block from you, you and you, and that color block from you, you and you. There are also several requests for Black on White and White on Black. I completely used up my stash with the last swap so I will have to purchase some more of that too. When and if I ever have enough blocks to make a decent size quilt, I'll post some pictures of the blocks I have received. As a reminder, I requested a white center string with floral strings on either side, easy, easy, easy.
