:cool: Nov 5, ????, a proper lady will never give the year, LOL??

Yellow and Navy Blue are my colors, cotton or silk fabrics are what I like to use. Don't care about block size or pattern used. Sounds like fun, can't wait but please set some definite guidelines, at the moment I not sure if I should do every birthday month which I think would become a job or just November . . . ? ? ?

November Birthday Block exchange

I would love to exchange blocks with other Scorpio's....I am partial to reds right now and love batiks and other contemporary fabrics. I prefer to work with 12 1/2 inch blocks.

Please don't sign the front but be sure to let me know your name, where you hail from and the name of the block - so that I can put it on a label on the back.

I'm looking forward to sending you blocks.

I am considering joining, but I am hesitating because I am still not clear on the directions. My birthday is November 13 (1949 - but who's counting?). Would I make blocks for only other November birthdays, or for everyone on the list? I am concerned I will get in over my head with the time to sew lots of blocks. How many blocks do you think I would need to make? Sorry for so many questions, but can someone provide more details for me? Thanks

Hi Vicki,

You had previously mentioned sending out the list for the block exchange.

Have you had the opportunity to do this yet? If so, I have not received it.

If you need other information to get it to me, please let me know.
