(12.5 inches raw edge to raw edge) The emphasis of the group is on friendship and sharing.

July partners sent

Hi Ladies,

By now you should have all received an email from me with your swap partners for July.  They are a little earlier than usual but you have all of July to make and send the block so don't panic.

We have 45 lovely ladies participating this month, with 5 members sitting out the swap for various reasons.  Thank you to Gemma for being my double swap lady for the month with the odd number of participants.  If you have put your hand up for a double swap please bear in mind we only get this opportunity when there is an odd number of swappers or when I have a new member join that wants to swap right away.  I do keep track of who has done the swaps and share this around.

We still have 50 members and it seems every time a member drops out a new one joins to take her place.  As I cap the numbers at 50, any new enquiries above this get redirected to the block 2 swap.  Membership enquiries have been a little quiet over the past few months.

We have 79 followers on the blog now, so there must be ladies sitting and waiting and (watching ) eager to join up at some later date. 

If you have not been sent an invite to post directly on the blog or if your invite has expired let me know and I will send this to you.  Its lovely to see all the blocks we make each other, such an array of talent.

Thank you all soooo much for supporting the group and being with me on this journey of friendship and discovery.

Happy sewing and quilted hugs, Sue xx
