November blocks for Billy

Here's a sneak peek for Billy. These blocks are on the way!

Monday, November 7, 2011


Hi All, Since Alex has placed the last post she has decided to hand over the reins of this group to me (for now).

Alex has emailed me all of your block preferences and details of who swapped with who and when.  Its on a spread sheet that may take me awhile to work out but I will organise a swap for you this month - hopefully later this evening.  I will also send you out invites to be able to post blocks made and sent directly onto the blog.  Alex's spreadsheet does not have your blog details on it, so if you email them to me, I will get them all up as followed blogs so all of the existing members of group one can follow you too.

Rather than run two groups I will amalgamate this group into group one from December onwards so you will all get to meet lots of lovely new bloggy quilting ladies in the larger group one.

I cant say yet whether or not Alex will be back running group two or if this will be a permanent merger.
But what I can say is WELCOME TO GROUP ONE.  and thank you for your patience and support.

Im still here

Hi ladies

Very sorry for the lack of craftiness.  Everyday I keep meaning to email out partners etc and everyday I feel worse and worse.

The good news is i have found a specialist who can help me.  Ive had various tests over the past few weeks and go into hospital for more tests today.

Im about to allocate partners and hope once my results come back and I can start treament, everything will be well.

Im really sorry once again and thanks for your patience.

I am happy to step in - note from Sue founder of the group.

Hi Ladies, some of you may not know me , my name is Sue and I started up quilting block swaps Australia in April 2010.  I also started up Christmas block swaps Australia and the lovely Crafty pugs took over running that for me as the main group got quite large.  (I also run 6 inch block swaps Australia).

As the group grew really fast and I was struggling to keep up so we capped the numbers at 50 and formed quilting block swaps Australia 2 which Alex offered to run.  I have not heard from Alex, but reading recent posts it seems that the group is suffering with her not being well.

I can manage to add new members from this group into group one so if you are interesting in jumping over send me an email  to and I will add you to this groups list.  I will send Alex an email shortly and let her know that I have done this, but as the founder I would rather have happy members than see the group suffer.

If you are interested in jumping over (either permanently or temporarily) I  will need to know your block choice (please give me 2 options where possible), colour choices, blog address if you have one and your snail mail posting address.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Mother group if you wish to transfer , and perhaps in time when Alex is up to it we can resume this group and you can hop back.

Quilted hugs, Sue xxx

Has this group died

Hi all
Just wondering since Alex is sick has this group died. I have had no partner for the last 2 months and therefore am feeling a little lost. I was really enjoying being part of this group but should I now go look for another block swap group

Firstly, apologies for my absence.  I'm sure I have lots of emails to catch up on and will attend to them tomorrow.

I continue to have health problems and am no closer to a diagnosis.  I am due to see a new specialist in a few weeks time and am hoping for some answers and improvement which is why I'm still keeping the group open.

I know I'm not able to give it everything it deserves at the moment but I'm hopeful that will change so thank you everyone for your patience and please continue to bear with me.

I'll send out blocks I owe and get onto my emails and swap partners bit by bit and hopefully done by the end of the week.

Thanks again ladies and I hope to get things back to the way they were.

xxx Alex
