I received my F&S Summer Exchange blocks from Jill F. and they are truly wonderful. Jill selected a very appropriate Lizzie Kate Design called “Summer Basket” and I could not be more pleased. What a wonderful design, I love the alphabet that surrounds the basket. Thank you so much Jill for these great squares!

My apologies for not posting Beth's squares earlier. I've had internet connection problems for 2 months but they appear resolved now. I rec'd these cute squares last month from Beth. Thank you very much Beth.

I received my Round 14 squares from Jill F. They are very pretty, and it is to bad I couldn't get a better picture with my camera. She stitched a pattern for me that was in my to do pile, so I was able to remove it and add something else to stitch. It is from Prairie Schooler and was in last year's JCS Halloween issue.
Thank you so much Jill. I absolutely love it.

These are the Summer Squares from Malinda:
And these are the Round #14 squares from Kathy. Kathy read on my blog that my bike got stolen a little while ago, so she stitched one for me. This is so thoughtful.
Thank you both very much.

Marie did a beautiful job stitching, and these are a very welcome addition to our lighthouse collection. I'm on the hunt for some proper finishing materials for a no-sew cube for this one.

I want to remind you that if for some reason you are unable to meet a deadline, you MUST not only contact your partner, but you must contact the moderator also. Below is from the "Member Rules":
15.) Failing to meet a deadline or not following through with your swap will mean instant termination from participating in future swaps. Life happens and if something comes up that throws the stitcher off schedule, please contact your partner and the moderator so that arrangements and schedules can be arranged. Communication is key! if you do not communicate with your partner and the moderator and fail to meet the deadline after the 8 weeks of a round (6 weeks stitching + 2 weeks "clean up" period) . You will be deleted as a member - no questions asked. Fair and Squares is implementing immediately a ZERO tolerance on all members that fail to mail their exchanges and do not communicate with their moderators and partners.
If you do not keep the moderator in the loop, we do not know what is going on. I realize things come up in life which puts us behind. Believe me when I say I know. I lost my dad last week after being quite sick for about 3 weeks so I am playing catch up on some things also.
I am playing this by the rules that have been set and am not going to babysit anyone. We are all adults.
