Disappearing 9 Patch Swap....

I have turned off the comments for this post. I just wanted to give you a swap up-date. I always answer each and every comment I receive, but this time I just cannot. I feel so funny by not responding to all of you that have already left comments. If I did respond it would take an hour, an hour that I should be getting your blocks ready to send. So, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you so much for your wonderful and kind comments, and please forgive me for not emailing each one of you separately. You are all wonderful! And for those who have just arrived…

Enjoy the post!!

I am off to tend to business!

Is now over.

I have the list all up to date.
I had 100 participants.
6 people kindly let me know that they would not be able to finish the swap. At that point, I was able to go to my waiting list and we then had 99 participants.
All but 2 sent in their blocks.
3 were late and will not be included.
After all, that in and out, we ended up with 94 sets out of 100!!
Not to bad at all!!
I would like to thank everyone that worked so hard on their blocks. The fabrics choices were wonderful.
Also, a huge thank you for sending in the blocks by the due date!!
I am now going to get them together and start to send them out.
I look forward to the quilts that will be made using these beautiful blocks.
Thought you might like to take a peek at all the blocks.

Now I need to go and sort!!
Thank you and happy quilting!!
