    I'm in! :-)

    No idea on what block to do.... but it will be SIMPLE this time! pmsl Might even get two sets done, blue is my favourite colour and I have a lot of it. Yellow would be an easy second, so should be able to find some.

    And that reminds me... I haven't done my return postage for the black and whites yet... I shall go do it now. *rushes off to find instructions*

    Of course you all are special!

    But, I think I'm going to decline this one.
    I'm actually partial to the cobalt blue colors and I know this isn't going to come out right, but I'm going to try to say it and hope it doesn't offend anyone.
    If I were to do yellow and blue, I would want it to be the cobalt blue. No offense against any other color/shade of blue. I would just prefer the one shade, know what I mean?
    I'm sure ALL the blocks are going to be beautiful...the ones from the B&W are great, but....I'm going to decline.
    Can't wait to see all the blocks!!

    i just enjoy collaborating with other quilters - i don't need to love every color choice to have fun.

    the pleasure is the quilting journey and the lovely quilt that i made with all my online quilting guild friends.

    I must admit, I thought the same thing... I like royal blues, very bright vivid strong blues, and equally bright yellows.

    But.... like kluedesigns, I don't think you need to like every colour for it to be great. I detest orange, but I use it quite a lot and love it in quilts. Same with the blues, I think the blocks themselves and the variety will make the finished quilts spectacular.

    Are you SURE you want to deprive the rest of us of getting a gorgeous cobalt blue and yellow block from you?!?!? ;-) ;-) ;-)

    I'm going to keep thinking....I'll check what I have. Really don't want to go out and buy anymore fabric. <GASP!> Did I just say that? I must be losing my mind.
    Going to give it a few more days, maybe.

    And I agree with Klue...I love making things with the others, but I just prefer certain colors.

    Is there a deadline for signing up for this swap?

    I'd love to participate, but I don't have very much yellow fabric in my stash and I can't afford to go out and buy more fabric right now. If I don't have to sign up right away, I can keep an eye out for some suitable fabrics at the thrift store over the next few weeks, and hopefully find something in time to join in.

    I think my fabrics choose my block, more than me choosing it.

    I'm still amazed at how different a block looks when made up in different fabrics.

    Great! That gives me time to find some yellow fabric I can use.

    I have another question: are all 12 blocks we send supposed to be the same fabrics/block pattern, or can they be different? I was thinking maybe I could use some scraps, but then all my blocks wouldn't necessarily be exactly the same.

    Thanks!

    As long as they are the same block using scraps will be fine. I know some people used entirely all FQ's for the swap blocks.

    i'm doing the friendship block and i just finished cutting up the fabric.

    i used 2 different yellow fabrics and 3 different blue fabrics because people are concerned about the shades.

    this way there's a blue shade to suit some ones taste and a yellow to suit some ones taste.

    there's something for everyone :D

    I question was brought to me via pm. The concern is about if any of the blocks will be made in a smoking environment. Does anyone have any input on this subject?

    klue - which friendship block are you making? there are several of them out there -

    blocks that come from a smoky environment?

    maybe they could either be washed or aired outside before sending them in? washing does require repressing, but it can be done -

    there is also a difference between where people only smoke outside and where six people are smoking five packs a day each inside in a 10 x 10 room -

    maybe have a non-smoking friend sniff them and go from there?

    when my DH smokes, he does so outside, but I can tell from 20 feet away when he comes in that he just had a smoke. the UGH factor sort of fades as my nose gets deaf to the smell.

    It was thoughtful of this person to ask.
