Hi Cathie just here to introduce myself and welcome you to MQP. Some times we are not sure where to visit on this site but I wanted to let you know that I have a group of gals and I that are doing several different quilts the Blooming Nine and the Jewel Box quilts. We are posting pictures with our choices of fabrics and progress. Carla Walton has done several of the Blooming Nine so she is our administrator. Come on over to view what we are doing at http://myquiltplace.com/group/batik-strip-swap/forum/topics/projects-and-pictures?xg_source=activity. To do the Jewel Box we have a Batik Strip Swap going on and we are using those strips for the Jewel Box. Just recent we started a Charm Square Swap so if you are interested you can go to http://myquiltplace.com/group/charm-square-swap and join in its fun.
