    I'll make some Rail Fence blocks. I don't think I've ever made any before! It'll use up some of this jelly roll I bought awhile back. At the time, I was a little disappointed that a lot of the strips were virtually identical, but the duplicates will come in handy for this.

    Note to self: Washing jelly roll strips isn't the most fun in the world.
    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here. Please note that I'm usually unavailable on weekends, but I'll get back to you on Monday.

    Moonrise, the antique tiles are stunning. I sure hope I get one in the swap.

    I know I like both too but the merry go round pattern looks a bity scarey to me. I still need to do a sample block. I did do the last two of Deb's swaps including the Dresden plate. I learned how to do a Dresden plate through that and really enjoyed it. I am well under way with the batik blocks, one set done and one partially done. I'd say join both. Hopefully this weekend I can make my sample block for the merry go round swap and see if I can make it.

    Moonrise, those are gorgeous!! Love 'em alot! Sorry about washing the jellyroll strips.. If it was another type of fabric other than Batiks I would say just post a note letting the swappers know it was from an unwashed jellyroll, but with it being Batiks they need a washin'

    So glad moonrise posted a pic of her blocks.. Anyone else feel free to do the same when you get them done - that's part of the fun with the sharing!

    I'm with Anna Go for both if you can.

    Hope everyone is have a great Friday, and I'm off to my sewing lab (what I call my sewing studio) to get some things done..

    I would like to sign up for this one. I have the time now. How do I sign up. Also, you are asking for a block that measure 12.5" each. Do you happen to have some free patterns for that size. All the patterns I have the block measures 12". Or do you have a site you can send me to that would have blocks that are the size you want.

    I want to participate sign me up please.

    Thanks, ya'll! I've got set #2 well underway.

    It's a good thing I washed the jelly roll strips. My fingertips were a blue-ish color afterwards, from the dye in the fabric!

    Please send me a PM (Private Meassge) with your name,mailing adress, and you email address to sign-up. Click on my screenname where it is green, and it will say Private Message, click that and you can send me this info..

    12.5" is the "Unfinished" Size with your 1/4" seam allowances. When you sew the blocks into a quilt they will be 12" "Finished"

    Here is a link to Quilters Cache, and with the blocks that will make 12.5" unfinished blocks (12" Finished):

    12.5" is the "Unfinished" Size with your 1/4" seam allowances. When you sew the blocks into a quilt they will be 12" "Finished".

    Here is a link to Quilters Cache, and with the blocks that will make 12.5" unfinished blocks (12" Finished):
    http://www.quilterscache.com/BlocksbySizeC.html

    If you are unsure if your blocks will be 12.5" "Unfinished" make a test block first (they will be a 12" finished sized when you sew them into a quilt). Several people have asked about this, and the size is very important! It's a standard 12" "Finished Size".

    If you have anymore questions please feel free to ask

    Hi Susan. Can I play too? I love batiks and am ready for a new challenge. Think I'll just do one set this time. It's my second swap, so I want to do it right.

    I found some coordingating batik fabrics, but don't sign me up yet, I have to be sure I can finish my blocks before signed up. Looking for a right pattern to use up the batik fabric strips that were already cut and I want to incorporate. Will keep you posted.
