Remember the Mystery Swap from 2008?

Post by knitnoid » Sun Apr 18, 2010 4:35 am

A couple of years ago there was a mystery swap that someone on the forum started. In the end the blocks were sent to me and I swapped them out. Many of the participant requested that I not send their blocks back and instead use them to make hug quilts for the forum members. Two tops were made and sent to a member (I think she lived in Iowa) to have quilted, but I'm not sure what happened to those quilts. I still have enough (38) signed, 9" blocks to make one more quilt top.

Is there anyone who actively participates in Projects from the Heart section of the QIAD forum who could take the blocks and get them made into a hug quilt?

There are 38 9" blocks and most of them are signed by the quilter.

Here are pictures of the first two tops:

I don't recall where those quilts went either. Good idea though to get the rest of the blocks put together. I don't quilt so I would have to take it to a long arm which would be out of my $$ ability at this time.
Have a great day! Valerie

Teresa graciously allowed me to send her the remaining blocks. She put together a quilt for Kho. You can see it here:

And Kho's response to receiving it here:

And for the record, this the string which started this back in 2008:

Great to see them finished into tops! I believe that I had some blocks in there!
