Red All Over and Christian Quilt Square Swap - July 2006

Participating in a quilt square and wishes swap was so much fun. I would recommend it to anyone who would like to have a set theme and receive so many different fabrics of the same theme (usually limited to 25 participants). I joined a Yahoo group called OHGWQ and picked which swaps I wanted to do. When I began collecting I didn't know how I would ever reach 100 squares. Now I have over 120!

Thank you to the families from the "Red all Over" swap:
Hahn, Keir, Lane, Boschee, Gehrke, Humphrey, Begala-Gordon, Helms, Pie, O'Brien, Scott, Andrews, Hewgley, McMillin, Mann, Lundy, Weber and Cercopely.

Thank you to the families from the Christian swap: McCann, Jones, Dubbs, Frederickson, Erickson, Poko, Matthews, Lauzon, Cercopely,McDonald, Howatt-Gallant, Mickelson, Casamassima, Scott, Larson, Boetticher, Krauth and Morrison.

Photos coming soon (as promised last month!!).

    Where do you find the quilt swaps? Are they yahoo groups? I'm just starting a 100 good wishes quilt for my daughter & need to know where to find more squares!! Thanks!!!

    Yes, go to Yahoo and sign in (if you don't have a free email address from them, sign up for one). The group called "OHGWQ" purpose is to organize swaps by theme. Once you have followed the rules to becoming a member of the OHGHQ group you go to the link for databases and search for an open swap. Reading some of the messages from new members will also help you understand the process. Lots of fun!! Also, join a DTC or LID yahoo group that matches your dates closest and you can do individual swaps with those members - just ask them in a message.
    Hope this helps.
