Siggy Block Swap

I feel so lucky to have gotten into the Siggy Block Swap today.
I was on my way home today.. driving down the road when I got a txt message from my sewing buddy - she told me that Rachel over at p.s. i quilt had opened up the siggy block swap. And she said "Hurry.. or you'll miss it"

So I pulled the car over.. and quickly sent Rachel an email letting her know I wanted in! And within seconds Rachel replied that I made it.. barely! Shew.. I was so relieved!

I can't wait to make my blocks - there are 100 people from all over the world in the swap. So that means that I need to make 101 blocks - each with my signature (siggy). Then we will send them all to Rachel and she will send a set back to everyone in the swap.

I will then make a quilt with 100 blocks.. one siggy block from each person.. how cool is that?!!!!

Now I just need to decide on a fabric.. hmm.. any ideas? We need to select a modern fabric.. and there are so many beautiful ones to select from. My mind is spinning with all the possible options! I think I'm a little high on fabric!

Thank you Rachel!
p.s. I will be posting a tutorial this weekend for the Goofy Dolls. I had meant to do it earlier in the week, but I'm having a minor 'procedure' tomorrow and between Dr visits.. lab work.. and keeping my house-hold from falling apart - I haven't had time to post it. I will do it this weekend for sure! I promise!

OMG, the swap sounds so fabulous! I don't suppose a second one could get set up for all us latecomers?
