But I do participate in swaps as well and they are fun but takes away time from my VV blocks. That's why I have decided that these blocks wil be the last ones for this year. It is a Sawtooth Star block swap done by ladies at the Jo Morton Stitchers Yahoo group. The deadline is April 15 and these will be in the mail tomorrow to be sure that they reach the swap lady in charge in time. It's hard to wait to get your swapped blocks back when you're a part of a swap. You never know what you'll get in return when it comes to colour and fabric choises the other participants have made. I think I will use my 30 blocks for a scrapy looking quilt with some applique added.
