There has been some interest in doing a dress block swap. There will be a maximum of 12 participants. Each person will do a dress block representative of their birth month for example, if you were born in July, a patriotic themed dress etc. if there are duplicate months you must willing to switch to a month that is not represented. Your finished block size needs to be 12 1/2 inches. If you would like to participate, please respond to this bread by saying "I'm in!" First 11 responses will be the participants. Blocks will be due to me by May 31. Looking forward to seeing the months!

Below are the months that are already been spoken for.  I am flexible to change my month, so if you want to join, say I'm in and the month you would like of the remaining choices.  First come first served!

January Kathy Gurgone

February Kenya Hampton

April Carla J Walton

May Mary-Anne Buist

June Connie Wilkerson

Got our dresses and I love them all.  Thanks, everyone!

I got mine today too! SO BEAUTIFUL! They are even prettier in person. I hope everyone likes the ones I sent. I hope they fit in with the rest.

Yes, they are beautiful.  I absolutely love yours, Michelle.  I have been a little worried that mine didn't fit in with all these lovelies.

Well of course we think they are perfect!  I love them all.  I do not think any one is prettier than the other.  It takes 12 months to make a year of birthdays and these dresses all fit in perfectly.  The variety of techniques used is so appreciated. 

Agreed, Beth.

it's perfect Chris.

I received my blocks in the mail.  Oh my goodness they are so beautiful!  I am excited to get going on these, but alas, I have two grueling projects before me that are UFOs that need done this week.  Come on over and help.
