I also started playing around with my blocks today from the Quick Christmas Bee. I have an idea for how I want to set them, and I'm taking them to a quilt shop tomorrow, hoping for some advice from experts.

I also have siggy blocks from everyone, and they will be incorporated into the backing.
I received my September block from Penny today for Block Swap Adventure. It's a wonderful block of pinks and greens. Some day soon, I'll have to photograph all of them together. For now, you can see all that I've received on one page if you click on the BSA page under my header photo.
