I would love to be part of an HST exchange. I'm NW Illinois and would love to help if I can. Keep me on your list.

Hi Lady Rags! I live on the far west side of Wisconsin along the Mississippi and you will be traveling along the far east side near Lake Michigan so I'm afraid I am not really familiar with any shops along your route. :cry: however I do know there is a fairly new Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts in Cedarburg which would be only a very short detour for you. David Taylor will be teaching there this fall and I would LOVE to attend! The website for the museum is http://wiquiltmuseum.com/ Appleton is very close to Door County, where Alex A. has family ties! Have a marvelous time at the wedding and visiting your family. I hope you enjoy the Wisconsin Quilt Museum! ~lynn

I would definitely be interested in participating in a hst exchange this summer. I live near La Crosse, WI now ( used to live in Naperville, Il) but I have ties in Chicago and the western suburbs and could easily come visit relatives and friends in order to be available to help with sorting, etc. I am officially offering to help, Kari. I can help with things earlier on in the process, too. Just let me know what, where and when!

Dawn,

I completely agree. We need to wait awhile. But I do think that it would take a while to organize, work out the guides, and find people who are willing to lead and participate. It is fine to start thinking about it now - maybe for the summer. I will have to see about leading. I would like to take a more active roll but am just starting a round of fertility treatments again. Hopefully, crossing fingers and knocking on wood I'll be pregnant by the summer. If there are enough people in IL to help I will certainly take on a larger roll. Lets all think about it and see.

It might be good to wait until the book comes out. It could be a fun way to celebrate the SOTTTs and also draw more interest in a second exchange.

Excited about the idea,
Kari

Kari, I know that there are a few people out there who would be interested in another HST exchange. I had suggested that it not be until after the SOS book deadline for the current HSTs (which is in May). I had also showed interest in organizing the exchange, but have had a change of heart! I really want to focus on making quilts, not doing spreadsheets, visiting the post office, etc! You seem very capable of organizing the next exchange, and surely the Chicago area should have a few TQS volunteers. I say go for it, and good luck! Maybe put out feelers, and have a deadline that allows those who are still frantically working on their HST quilt for the SOS book, to complete it and still participate in the new exchange. These are just suggestions. So far the response on the spool quilt has been slow and quite manageable. Like I said, many members are still working on their last HST quilt, and others are jumping into the new BOM. Just things to think about.

Another HST exchange would be fun - but I would suggest that the number of hst be limited. Basically, no matter how many people participate we all send in 112(4 of Edita's sheets, or any agreed upon amount)- and all in the same fabric. It seems like it would be a lot easier to sort. Or we all send in one for every person participating. I would be willing to assist in organizing it if anyone else from the Chicago area also wants to help. Maybe a different size this time?

For all those of you who are waiting I have now opened a new (& limited numbers) exchange for anyone who would like to join in making a reel/spool quilt called Wot RoTT - Winding on the Reels of Tangled threads

A short introduction -

Firstly, I have always called them cotton reels, rather than cotton spools and I intend to stay that way so I know what I am talking about.

Secondly, what I loved about the BatiksRUS & SoTTTs was that I had a little piece of someone else’s sewing as a keepsake.

Thirdly, I loved the idea of having a quilt full of cotton reels.

so if any one cares to join the exchange, or just turn up to gossip head on over to the Wot RoTT exchange

Thanks to Margo and all her great suggestions for the HST exchange I will soon begin binding my quilt. She suggested I check out Ricky's Grand Finale DVD for the piped machine applied binding and I think that is what I will select. Also I had such a great time getting to know so many quilters from around the world that I definitely would like to participate in another exchange. I will definitely keep watching to see what develops in 2012. :D New Year!

This is getting me excited - and I'd better hurry up with the quilting of my present HST projects! Also, I began an HST exchange in our guild, so ---many, many projects going on! Yikes! So, just to say I hope the next exchange will be something different than HSTs.

I'm interested in another exchange and am willing to help from a distance, unless someone close to Iowa volunteers for the job. Shirley 35 from Iowa.

I, too, would love to get into the cotton reel (spool) block swap but I don't check The Forum often and will probably miss the sign-up. Is there a way to flag a Post on a 2012 block swap and have it sent to my email address? (That's IF I were lucky enough to get into the limited exchange group :wink: )
