Alex's Swap Partners - please read!

I emailed you all last week to let you know your blocks are on the way and they far as I knew.

DH promised to post them but I found them tonight still in his briefcase!!

I'm so sorry.  He kept meaning to post them and didn't realise the urgency.  It's so unprofessional especially for a co-ordinator so the Australian blocks are going out in express envelopes first thing in the morning and I'll ask at the PO what my options are for the International blocks.

I'll be enclosing a little gift in each envelope.  I'm so sorry!  This is the last time I rely on DH to do my mailing.

April partners will go out tomorrow.  We'll have 3 new members which I'm finalizing.

Please email me with any questions or concerns.

Hi and a block for Alex

Hi I joined this group this month after seeing on another swap group people also making and swapping in this group. I look forward to swapping and making blocks with group.
Baby bunting white and light purple
Alex asked me to make a baby bunting block which I have done, I hope she likes it.

I now have 3 lovely blue and white star blocks so thought I would post a picture of them

Thankyou to Alex, Sue and Kym who made them for me

More Swap Fun...

 There are a few new swaps happening which are related to the original Quilting Block Swaps Group so I thought I'd give you girls a heads up.  Buttons can be found in the side bars...

Sue B, who runs the above group has started a second swap group for 6 inch blocks. If you'd like to join, click the button below:

The other exciting swap is run by Cathy and is an unsewn swap.  Fat Quarters are exchanged each month!  How FUN!  Click on her button below to get more info.

Thank You...

For all the blocks I have received.

I hope I have emailed everyone to say they have arrived safely but as I have FIVE swap partners for March I'm being kept very busy, so I sincerely apologise if I have forgotten to email you!

I'll be posting photos of blocks I've sent and received and so on.

I'll also be mailing blocks to my March partners as soon as I can.  Happily there is a little fabric shopping to be done in order to have everything I need.
