Good Morning,
I think the spool exchange sounds like a great idea ---- Count me in. If it is within my area, I would be more than happy to help. I enjoyed the HST exchange and the Batik Strip exchange. I'm not much of a blogger, but I do enjoy frequently checking in to read what is going on.
Happy Sewing,
Lori

I would love to participate in another exchange and I love the idea of the spools exchange! Count me in on whatever anyone decides to do. I'll be happy to offer any insight I have gained from the SoTTTs and I'm sure Barb and Ritzy would do the same. My biggest suggestions are to limit the number of participants to something that is workable and to have everyone submit the same number of HST's, spools, whatever. It is way too difficult to redistribute when you have packages varying from 28 to over 900! There were definitely lessons learned with SoTTTs, Strippers and the Batiks exchange and that should make it easier for members who want to organize other exchanges.

I still have my HST quilt to finish and I'm sooooo glad that Carol extended the book deadline to May 1, but I'm ready whenever a new leader takes the reins.

I'd love another exchange and the spools idea is terrific! Also would help in any way I can (other than being "in charge")....

Happy Thanksgiving to all the sisters and brothers in TQS land.

I just checked my book, Edyta's spools quilt seems to call for 40 strips. Definitely doable!

I love the spools idea. In fact, I'm designing a sampler of the spools, flowers, etc. from the 2 books I purchased of Edyta with my strips from the strip exchange.
But the spools quilt would require way less strips than the 615 HST I used & added to to enlarge my Medallion quilt. Anyway, I could be wrong but guessing 200
strips could easily make a big spools quilt.

Nancy, please keep an eye on the forum for any upcoming exchanges! It sounds like you may have volunteered to sort! :D

Also...are you aware that the deadline for the SOS book has been extended???

Good Afternoon Everyone. I am waiting for my flight back home from Houston and had a little time to send a note. It sounds like a number of you are working really hard to get your HST exchange and Strip Exchange projects done. Well, I have some very good news for those of you that are afraid that you may not make the Jan. 1, 2012 deadline. IT HAS BEEN EXTENDED. Yes, that is correct. The deadline has been adjusted and the new revised date in May 1, 2012. So relax and take a deep breath. You will get them finished and you can still have them included in the S.O.S. HST/Strippers Keepsake book/DVD.

There were be an official announcement coming shortly on the Daily Blog and in the newsletter.

Oooh PosyP (Rosemary) I do hope you'll do the block exchange. If we work this right, we only have to give everyone a roster of who is participating and we can break it down into several rosters of X number of ladies so that right many can participate and yet it would be manageable. I'd be happy to help with that when you're ready. Over the years, I've coordinated block exchanges for North Carolina Quilters, the statewide guild, which at one time was over 300 strong, and also the local guild. NC Quilters lasted for 20 years, but is sadly no more. We were replaced with small guilds in towns all across the state, which is a happy thing! Anyway, I'm offering to help.

Margo - I think Edyta's spools are just great!!!

I'm still working on my triangles, and didn't have it done in time for the book. I'm sorry I'm going to miss out on that, but am going to enjoy seeing what everyone else has accomplished.!

Everyone have a Happy Thanksgiving! :D

I rewatched the Edyta Sitar episode a few days ago and thought how fun it would be to make a spool quilt like that. So if anyone is up for it in a few months or later, I'd join in. I did notice that her quilts were mostly more muted fabrics. My triangles were wild and wonderful (loved them!) Would we want to consider some fabric guidelines? Just something to think about.

I'm also thinking, I sent in over 600 triangles in the SOTT exchange. That kind of volume was hard to manage (OK, impossible :roll: ). If our aim was to make a spool quilt, maybe should we have a set # of strips to exchange, or a maximum?

Anyway, I'm fervently glad I was part of the SOTT's and am so happy to see what people have done with them. I would do another exchange again because this was such a positive experience for me. And my gratitude goes out forever to Debbie and Clara and all their helpers.

I truly think that these exchanges brought us closer as a community.

A spool block exchange sounds fun. I am one of the people who is still finishing up the HST projects from the SOTT and Batik exchanges. I have the tree quilt from Edyta's book completed and at the quilter. Now I am working on a pinwheel nine-patch quilt with the rest of my squares. I like it but sure takes a lot of sewing. I have had to add a few more of my own triangles but I am enjoying the process and feel more relaxed about it now that the deadline is May.
