Usual swap rules apply as posted in the Member Swaps forum. Background may be color of your choice. Blades may be in 1930's fabric, or brights, hues of the same color palate, opposites....whatever you desire. Since this block may take you out of your comfort zone (we all need to challenge our skills!), I would suggest that you make a sample block before you commit to the swap. The step by step directions are very nicely done. If you wish to join, pm me, then I will post your name in the thread as a way of tracking. When your blocks are completed, please pm me for addy, and postal instructions.http://www.quiltinaday.com/freepatte...GoRound_12.pdf
    I figured out the yardage. All of these are based on 40 width of fabric. Background - 7.5 square - you will get 5 squares per row, need to cut three rows of 7.5 equals 22.5 inches: Plus 2-1/8 x 16 strips (two needed per block) - you will get two strips per row, need 24 strips, you will need to cut 12 rows of 2.5 (give yourself a little leeway) equals 30 inches. 30+22.5 = 52.5 ....1-1/2 yard should be good. For safety insurance you may want to get 1-2/3 yard for background. This blocks shows only two colors - so based on that - yellow - you will get 5 blocks per row, need three rows = 22.5 =2/3 yard needed, may want to get 1 yard for safety insurance. Blue - you will get 2 strips per row, need to cut six rows = 1 yard, but I would get 1-1/4 yard, again for safety insurance. Now, if you want to put in two colors (split the blue) 2/3 yard of two different colors, and if you wanted to split the yellow as well - 1/2 yard of two colors would be plenty.
