Happy autumn everyone - where did summer go? It seemed to really wizz by this year, and I have to say I think it was the mildest summer I can remember for a long time.
A big warm welcome to all of our new member's 12 so far, but there is still time to go before the first swap gets underway.
Introducing the members so far we have
All of these ladies are members of either group 1 or 2 and have been swapping with us already for awhile.
Brand new members to the group are:
Some of which have joined other swap groups within our community this month too, A big quilted hugs welcome to the newbies, and a big thank you to everyone for your continued support and friendship.
I am about to send out blog posting invites to all of the members of this group so look out for this, so when the block swaps are done you can post pics and comments.
In relation to blogs, as its hard for me to keep track of everything I am only going to be following members blogs of this group via the 12 inch block group so if you have a blog that is not on the followers list send me a link with your http address and I am happy to add this so all members can stay in touch with you this way too.
We have also a choice in this group if you are to make one or two blocks per month and so far its about 50/50 so I will pair up the 2 a month swappers and the 1 a month swappers together but if this starts getting to hard to co ordinate we will vote on the number to be done each month.
Registration is open to ALL members of group 1 and 2 quilting block swaps Australia and Christmas quilting block swaps Australia. You can elect to make one or two swaps per month. (unless this gets to complicated and then it will change to the most popular option).
HOW TO REGISTER 1. Email me to email@example.com 2. Name and postal address (if you are a member of group 1 I have this) 3. How many blocks you want to make per month (1 or 2 ). 4. Your block style 5. Your colour choice
The first swap will commence mid March 2011, and swap partners will be sent out in the middle of each month so its a few weeks clear of the standard and Christmas swaps.
