It was like Christmas today! I opened a ton of packages that have accumulated over the last 2 weeks.

I don't know how many times I can ask. PLEASE include a note with your forum name so I can let you know your square arrived safely. I have let everyone know that I have so far except for:
Daniel J
K Cooke
Jessica E

You didn't include a note so I couldn't message you. Your squares have arrived safely.

I also want to give a very special THANK YOU to Katdun and Clarington for sending me a little money to help with the fabric and batting costs. I really appreciate it!

I'm about 95% sure that's who they are. :)

I'm excited to see the finished quilts!
Sorry I couldn't get my act together again this year, kinda took an unexpected break from stitching this year :p

I have now let everyone know if I received your square. If I didn't message you (or list you above) then I haven't gotten it. Now to wash, iron, and cut all of the squares and then I will let everyone vote on the fabric we use this year. I think I am going to "frame" them in black so the coloring of the fabric won't impact the squares. I really liked the way that looked.

Ok, Squares are washed and cut out. We only have enough for 1 quilt this year. Here is what I have for a layout so far. The bottom left and top right will be the green Child's play logo. The bottom left and upper right will be the Sprite Stitch logo and year.

a) Are the squares you sent me this year present?
b) How is the layout? I tried to make sure that 2 squares form the same game aren't next to each other and the colors are evenly spaced.

I think the layout looks good. My square is definitely there.

The square that is in the 4th row 2nd one in (above the hockey square), should be turned. It isn't my square, but my son says that it is turned in the wrong direction right now, and that is should be turned so the head is to the left.

It should be turned so that the head is to the right. If you look you can see the puddle of tears under his head, which should be on the floor that he's lying on. :)

EDIT: Oh yeah, I forgot to say that I like the layout! :)
