I have returned, I have no idea how time can past so quickly. I sent SPARKMAIL tonight to all who have joined the Swap. I may be out of town part of January so I picked the 20th to have them completed and to me by the 25th. Hope this works out for everyone. We have allot of snow on the ground here. I do not go much when it is icy out and most days the mail is delivered. We did miss one day last week because of power lines down and too much snow for the trucks to get out to the small Post Offices. Looking forward to receiving those blocks.

Jean is out of touch for a few days so I will try to answer any questions you might have.
As of now, I believe we have 10 in the swap. We are each making 10 log cabin blocks using the instructions previously posted. We are making a 12" Log Cabin Block. The unfinished block will measure 12 1/2 inches.
We will use the pattern from the Quilterscache.com site

Once the blocks are done we will send them to Jean with a SASE and she will divide up the blocks and return them to you.

Blocks should start with a red center block and then use Christmas Themed fabric for the rest of the blocks.

Jean posted some examples on her Spark Blog recently. You should check those out, they are beautiful.

If you have any other questions, please let me know.
Babachan (Carolyn)

when she gets all of them she then sends everyone one of each . then its up to us to make our own craft item out of the blocks we have. I think it will be neat to see how we each put them together , you can make several patterns from them and then borders can really make them look different

Ready, Set, Sew!
I looked at the instructions and they look pretty easy to follow.
I am going to start with the red centers and then chain piece, working all nine blocks
at the same time! (Like an assembly line!) It should be lots of fun!
Thanks for organizing this swap!

This is my First Time organizing the Swap so please be patient with me. If my directions don't make sence, it is because they make sence to me and maybe no one else.

We are making a 12" Log Cabin Block. The unfinished block will measure 12 1/2 inches.
I love the Quilterscache.com site and the directions are easy for me to follow. If they are confusing, please feel free to ask me or anyone else in the group for help. A traditional Log cabin has a red center. One side will be light and the other dark/medium fabric. Any Christmas colors will work. The light side could even be light color fabrics that are not christmas design. I am so looking forward to this swap and I hope all of you are excited. Let's have a January 20, 2013 completion date. I will sparkmail all of you the mailing information.

Thanks for all the participation. Let's have fun and do something creating.

JEAN

I forgot to mention that you will need to make 9 squares to mail to me.

I've been out of town the last few days. Today I will post the final ideas/directions for our Swap. I am excited about this, I bought some new fabric in a small shop in Arkansas Thursday.

I am happy with 9 that will make a pretty wall hanging and I need some stuff to use as decoration for the holidays and a quilt would be perfect.

We will close this signup on Friday, Oct 12. I am happy with enough sqares for a table topper. Directions will follow soon.

Let's have some fun. JEAN

Concerning the number of blocks I'm game for what ever is decided.
I like the thought of the Red center and then what ever Christmas fabric we have. I'm trying to get rid of my scrap pieces.

I put an all call out yesterday in my other sewing teams. If you didn't hear from anyone, I'm fine with 9 blocks. I would just like to know if you are giving more explicit directions any lights? or just creams or whites?) or if we can do whatever so long as what we consider Christmas fabrics are used and there is a red center.

We are up to 7. We usually do 12 but we could stop here and maybe we could invite others. So far we have 3 for only January only and if that has a bearing for others we could just decide on that now. Please let me know any input. If we just stay with 7, we could all make 8 sqares and that would be a good start for a table topper. (We would need to make one more for ourselves to have 9 sqares) They make a lovely addition to any table for the holidays. I am ready if you guys are and January is fine.

We had our first hard feeze here this morning, that means the holidays are creeping up on us.

Count me in for December. I'm assuming you will spill out the details in regards to the numbers of block we need to make, etc. at a later time. The sooner the better.

Just a question about the log cabin block itself......sorry, I have never made this block before....Do you want to start with a red block in the center then have the red/green christmas fabric considered the darks and then white/cream color as the light? Or, is it just random colors after starting with the red center?

Also, is this link the correct site for the instructions?

Are we ready for a new Swap? I love the traditional log cabin square with red heart (center), I hope that others like this also. I think we should start there with continue with any Christmas Fabric you choose. The directions on www.quilterscache.com make a 12" block. This is a basic log cabin and I hope any new quilters will enjoy making the square. We need to decide on a completion date, please indicate December or January and we will go with the majority.
