    Difergie, great minds think alike! What are the odds that 2 of us would have the same, or nearly so, fabric? If you look in gallery you will see my fabric is almost identical to yours. I made the same "no black or white" as well. All done before i saw your info!

    I am using lots of differnt bright fabric's with ciricular designs. I changed my mind at the last minute and will need more fabric. Quilt will be for my 3 year old granddaughter. Would like brights, no muddy colors, black, brown or white, a couple of the fabrics are black and white just pick a bright color to go with them. it would be wonderful if all the bright colors make her giggle. Thanks Terri

    I have a question. I would like to make a two color quilt. I have 4 co-or donating fabrics. May I send 2 f8ths to each person and ask that you only use those two, or both of those two in the same block? I am NOT asking for two blocks. If you want to add another fabric please stay with the two colors, and add only white. Thanks! If this is against the rules, or we want it to be, please let me know your thoughts and opinion, thanks!

    OK, F&F folks, I was going to ask you your opinions on this since it was posted here but as I typed out a totally different response from the one you're now reading, I changed my mind. Although part of me is inclined to say send the coordinating fabric, a larger part of me thinks it will hamper your creativity and the original spirit of the swap. April set this up as a Friendship Swap. We can already limit colors, I don't want to restrict everyone even more to a required fabric. So, executive decision, no, let's send a single fabric and let each member of the group make what they chose from it. Sending multiple fabrics might be a good idea for another swap though.

    I am good with that decision. I have lots of fabric, so choosing another is not a problem! Will be sending out fabric soon as i make up my mind which one to go with. Decisions decisions!

    I'm fine with someone sending two F8s. No problem at all. (It makes my job easier! LOL!)

    Just saw the picture of all the envelopes.....mine will look different. The person at the PO said that the tyvek (sp?) envelopes were much more expensive and that for the price ($5.60) I would use the cardboard mailers. So, that's what I used. The F8's are all in baggies, so I expect all will be well (hopefully).

    Not much more expensive and a lot more room in them plus they don't rip or tear. They are pretty much indestructible, .30 cents more to send than the paper ones, $5.90.

    Hey, this is Christmastime. Who notices a few dozen extra pkgs?! Now, I'm pretty furious you are all so fast! I have decided to do a totally scrappy. So just close you eyes, pull a fabric, cut , sew, repeat. Everyone will get something different. have at it! HO ho ho ! 8-)

    Mine was $5.32 to ship in a Tyvek envelope (1lb 3oz, I think), however, Janice and I are in the same state, and I used online shipping, so it turned out to be cheaper than a flat rate mailer.

    My F8s are all cut, wrapped up with instructions and names. I just need to get to the PO and pick up the envelope! They should be in the mail by Monday afternoon.
