At first I was a little hesitant about posting this swap because I was afraid that you gals might think I was a little nuts doing a Christmas swap in July. But I have to tell you that you have all exceeded my wildest imagination. Your blocks have been absolutely beautiful and if I have counted correctly, it looks like everyone should receive 15 or 16 blocks in return due to the generosity of several participants who have sent in 2 sets of blocks. It either had to be generosity or the desire to reduce some of their stash so that they could have an excuse to get more fabric...hehehe. Either way I am overwhelmed Thanks to everyone who has participated and I look forward to seeing everyone else's blocks when they arrive.
I for one am glad you posted this swap but I also want to thank you cause this is a rather large job you have undertaken
