From Donna to Bellezza

These wonderful blocks came in the mail yesterday. I love everything about the fabrics and block styles. Thank you Donna for an amazing April swap.

For Wendy .................

April blocks in blue and white - tree or ornaments, so I made both.
Wendy has received these and I am waiting impatiently for the star I have seen.
Happy stitching Wendy, Jan

March Block Sent

My March Block sent to Kelly D


We are now full!

Please join me in welcoming Maree from Tasmania, Australia to our Christmas Quilting Block Swap group.
With Maree joining, we are now at capacity (actually over capacity), and will not be accepting any more new swappers.

We currently have 2 swappers on leave, and 1 swapper MIA (missing in action).  That means there may be one more spot left, if I don't hear from our MIA person by 15th April :)

Our Swap Rules have been updated - please check them out :)  

For our Bloggers: Links to our Active Members' online info have been added to the sidebar – please take a moment to go visit them and spread some Christmas Swap Love ;-)
For those that prefer Facebook:  visit and ‘Like’ our Facebook page and join in with the action on our Facebook Group  ;-)  please see links below and on the sidebar.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me!

Communication with Swap Co-Ordinator

This post will stay on top for the month of March - please scroll down for newer posts.

As much as I love organising this swap every month, there are aspects that are very frustrating and time consuming.  At the moment, we have 30 active members - that makes 15 emails that take approximately 1½-2 hours to assign partners, compile emails and send.  I haven’t taken into consideration the other time spent during the month to follow-up on possible non-swappers, or people who just don’t reply to emails.  

So for the month of March, I would like to try something new – I would like you to let me know when you have put your block in the mail.  A photo would be lovely, but not compulsory, just send me a quick email.  If you don’t let me know you have sent your block, you won’t get a partner next month.

PS - if you haven't heard at all from your swap partner by 21st of the month, DO NOT SEND YOUR BLOCK, but please let me know :(

My March partner was Brenda who sent me this simply stunning, and stunningly simply star. Just 2 fabrics - the red with silver, gold and white and a lovely t-o-t cream. Beautiful - also a lovely red and white snowflake fabric. Thank you so much.

Here is the rising star I sent to Brenda -
