    Oh no, you daring me now? LOL, you've seen my sewing girl!

    Hmm, well it is an opportunity to try out my new Accuquilt cutter. Let me think on it while I knock out a couple other projects & see where I am scedule-wise so I can decide how many sets to do, but I'm in.

    Your seeing is fine... Especially when it was your first throw, sheesh don't be so hard on yourself! You should've seen my first runner :-)

    I will consider the challenge accepted and look forward to seeing what you come up with. Btw strip blocks are gorgeous in batiks... Since you got that cutter and all.

    I'm new to swapping in QB. But interested in this one.
    let me see if i understand correctly.
    they are to be 12.5" blocks.
    one set means sending in 6 blocks each in their own bag.
    But one can do up to 6 set that would mean sending in 36 baggies of a block in each bag. And just one design pattern to be made for all blocks.
    is that correct?

    nope every six are the same so if you do 36 your doing six sets off one pattern each set. you can use different fabrics but say need 6 ohio stars, 6 strip sets, 6 nine patches, 6 monkey wrench etc. whatever pattern you chose jut 6 blocks of one design for EACH SET. so dont repeat your design in another set. does that clarify things for you?

    Ty elisa,
    i now understand that part.
    another question. Do each block go on a baggies or just that set pattern of 6 go in a baggie?

    each set of six goes in a baggie. so they are seperated and easy for the host to sort I believe
