Welcome to the HGTV 2009 One Block Swap main page. click on the links below for some awesome "cq eye candy".


GREAT JOB "Crazy Ladies" everyone put a lot of love and talent into these blocks.


Once again Nickilee hosted/organized the HGTV "My Favorite Things" One Block Swap. 49 crazy ladies signed up listing their favorite things. Nicki, with the assistance of her DH, she drew names matching CQers to make a block for someone based on their favorite things.


My favorite thing about this swap is that it is open to anyone who wants to participate. There are "Newbies" in this swap, this is their first CQ block. Everyone in this group is very encouraging and helpful.
