    Do I understand this correct? 6 blocks make a set? A set is needed? And those could be 6/ 3inch blocks? 6/6inch blocks , What if I take 4 r4inch blocks sew together to make a 12 inch block? need 6 of these?

    Sorry, I will get this down soon I hope.

    I hope everyone is going to post what they plan on doing (size-wise) because I feel a little too vague on the execution.

    In the end, you will probably have blocks of a variety of sizes. Your final layout may take some finagling to see how each piece fits together, almost like a tetris puzzle. With the freedom to do squares or rectangle blocks, you won't likely end up with the ability to lay them out in a grid type fashion like as in most of the other block swaps which use all 12" blocks. Does that make sense or did I just confuse the matter more for you?

    Thanks Joyce. I understand that part. I would just like to have a better idea if people plan to mix it up or if they pick a specific size, or what.

    One of my projects (and I lost the photo) was a group project without rules. Everyone submitted a block and boy were they random. I was the putter-togetherer. It turned out OK but I wish I had a little heads-up.

    Well, if it's any help, I'm going to do a matched set, whichever size I do. I won't do 1 6x6, 1 3x12, 1 9x9, etc. But I need to play with my fabric a little, and let the poultry muse speak to me! :-)

    Hi, Sandi, and fellow-chicken-lovers (not livers). I've been looking forward to this swap since the last one. Thanks for heading it up, Sandi. I will PM you with my official intent.
    Let the feathers fly!

    Its great that we are getting more folks! OK...just to clarify a bit. When you commit, you are committing to at least 1 set of blocks. 1 set does = 6 blocks. These 6 blocks must be all the same size. If you choose to do a 6 x 6 (and you will always need to add the seam allowance)...then they should ALL 6 be that size...If you choose to do another set...then you can do a different size...OK???

    Mad...I think that as people choose what they are going to be doing.....asking them to let us know what size they will be sending if a fine thing to do. Maybe I can post that on the group activity page that I show the link to on Page 1...the opening post. I'll see what I can do. For now....I'll post all the swappers on that group activity list so everyone can see who all is playing. *Edited to say that it appears that I can list people's block sizes on the "public" section on that page.*

    Still looking like fun to me! :lol:

    Thanks for that clarification. I must have had a "chicken with its head cut off" moment (HEY how's that for funky - lol) I THOUGHT that the set of six could be a mix of sizes.

    Never mind - all is clear now. Thanks for being patient.
