    I have a pretty good idea of what fabric I will be sending. I am thinking of sending a white TOT, and have you add reds to it, and make a red quilt. After I decided how many of the red blocks I want I will be doing the same thing, but adding blue to the white instead. So I can have me a red and white quilt and a blue and white quilt

    Hope everyone is doing well!

    WOW after searching WHOOO WHOO and no one was home in the other blog I found you. Secret group you werent going to tell me? hanging head.. ok over it.

    I love the Americana thing as just the last two days I have been looking at all the fabrics in civil war style (love reproductionfabrics.com) it got me thinking, then of course my mind went to thimbleberries never done that.. well did I pick any of that for you? no had picked bee fabric for my sis now sorta changing my mind. Shouldnt wrote all those notes by hand! Problem is she gave me seven yards of it with the one day sigh attached.. I am not fond of bugs on fabric so what to do... you will be as suprised as me as tomorrow is cut off day. I will now have to recheck but thought rubies and diamonds did not have any double ups so think no envelopes are duplicates. sixty five cents is sixty five .. almost enough for a bite of that candy I need to buy a truckload of.. oh wait its APRIL who said she was tossing in the chocolate. Catch was I think, it was offered to new takers so we could close the swap. THAT WOULD BE ME so don't close your envelopes yet when sending mine. Just leave out the chocolate blicko. Jelly Bellies. Black ones

    if the fabric arrives all wrinkled how do you get it normal before cutting if we don't use starch? just water? seems like its going to be pretty smushed after being stuck in an envelope..

    Elisbrat u can use starch. When I get mine I press with water and starch to lay flat before cutting. After blocks are done, I lay the block out on my table to "air" a little, but that is me.

    Thanks Yosamitesa, I will get it right .. I thought wow I am going to stand over that hot iron today and then.. put folds in everything shove it in that envelope only to arrive, needing ironing. I also stupidly and I say this sincerely made a great fall block the other day. I love it. Noticed a wrinkle after the fact right there in the center block. Misted not sprayed the block, pressed not ironed it and there I ended up with a block with a warped like bumply center instead of just a wrinkle line. I was less than happy. I did use starch. So now I am scared of starch too and I know water can distort it after sewing so.. ahhh worries worries. not sure still about the bees. I am not feeling it. Problem is I am then still stuck with having to sew something out oif it. Argh.
