thanks everyone for the lovely compliments. :D
Beverly- embroidery is fine, can't wait to see what you come up with!
Jacquie and Carolyn, thanks for the input on the key. I am thinking if I move it down too far, it will be too close to the base of the clock. I may leave it up where it is.

Can't wait to see more samples.

Yay! Izzy!! I am glad you signed up.

Everyone, I have had some request for machine embroidery and I am going to allow it for this swap. This is such a different kind of swap anyway and I am sure it will be very interesting to have a couple of machine embroidery blocks. Just as long as it includes a key. I hope you all don't mind. If you do please let me know.

Oh, I also added some more ideas in the second paragraph above for things your key could open if you haven't thought of anything yet. If there are some out there considering this swap, please check it out. We would love to have you

Vinae, it is fine with me!

I have traced, cut and ironed appliqués for 10 blocks. Will be hand stitching. I will watch for sign-ups and make more.

Izzy- I LOVE IT!!! WOW! So cool! Beautiful!!!
I am getting excited for this quilt now and I might have to do two sets so I can have one for me. My youngest DD gets this quilt for her b-day. She is my inspiration for this swap.

I love the bird and bird cage. Lovely work. Is this machine embroidery. I love machine embroidery, I do not have an embroidery machine. I do appreciate all of machine embroidery.
