    Quick newbie questions..

    Is it helpful to send a complimentary second fabric if I wish to have multiple fabrics per block? And if so, what size should the second fabric cut be to allow for plenty of creative freedom?

    Thanks!

    Edited: And still be able to fit in the postage envelopes

    Great question that leads to packing/shipping info

    TMF, great question! You may send a complimentary second fabric however it must be small. I'd recommend if you want only certain colors in your block, that you make that part of your requests. A good way to do it is to add paint color chips or small pieces of your suggested complimentary fabrics along with a note to each baggie.

    Oddly enough, as past Boomers are aware, this is not a fabric issue so much as a packaging/shipping issue. We've had problems with too much fabric being sent (2 and three pieces of fabric by several people) and suddenly what should have fit in a single mailing package now had to be packed in a much larger box at an unexpected substantial shipping cost increase to the person receiving it. Therefore, I'd ask that you not send anything larger than say 6 1/2 by 6 1/2 and be sure to pack everything in as small a ziplock style bag as you can find. I know it doesn't seem like it but the packing and the ziplock size bags can be the difference between me packing bags fairly easily and me ready to tear my hair out in frustration while mumbling lots of 4 letter words. All four letter words. And please, please, please everyone, no ziplock bags with hard zippers. Shortly, I'll take a pic of how I'd like to find fabrics when I open your packages. Stay tuned...

    Also, the Gallery is up with your fabric selections so far. If anyone wants to change the one I've posted, just let me know. Check it out. URL is in my signature below.

    YES! I will sponsor you! (Tho that isn't required for this swap.) So happy that you want to join us. I think with all the posts today, Janice overlooked yours, or she would have greeted you.... Welcome!

    Cathy is the most amazing quiltmaker... she does awesome work! See if you can find pics of some of the quilts she's posted to the board. You will be blown away. She also knows everything about vintage sewing machines, if you happen to need advice in that department.

    D. Henson, we will miss you so please lurk and chat!

    Darcyshannon, yay that you are joining again.

    Hey, Givio posted. Maybe we can reel her in again, too!

    I figured there would (quickly) come a point of frustration with too much fabric for the postage envelopes and will keep to 6 1/2" for my complimentary fabric

    If, for any reason, someone wanted extra of anything I would gladly send it to them directly anyway

    Once I get through my freshmen BOOM I'm sure I'll have plenty of the tricks down!

    I only have 12 cuts of the vintage fabric I am using this time around, and have requests for a couple of side swaps, so if I double up I'll have to find another fabric. At least that won't be as boring for everyone as making two of the same fabric.... I'll think on it.

    Quite a few people last time sent lots of fabric up to three pieces total. I think a small piece will fit easier if needed to work with your main fabric.

    Kass the curves are going to make your quilt spactacular.

    Love all the fabrics.

    Janice you know I will be glad to double up. I’m sending assorted fabric so hopefully no one will get a double of the same fabric

    Here’s a sample of how I’d like your fabrics packed and a sample color request. (I just grabbed the only color chips I had and a leftover piece of fabri. This is not my real color request.)

    The ziplock is smaller than a quart size. Inside is my F8 and my color requests. The outside is labeled with my name. My color request asks that cream on cream and/or the attached colors be used. I would hope people come close to the colors samples but I must remember that there will be variation and artistic license used. Once all the F8s are packaged, please make sure you remove as much air as possible and then pack them tightly inside a gallon size ziplock on which your real name and address is written and the group name. If you are in 2 groups, please pack each group in its own gallon sized ziplock. I will send your blocks back to you in the original ziplocks you send me.

    Hope this is helpful for newbies.

    I sent my email - now to pick out the fabric.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    Ok, I'm getting push back on the smaller second piece of fabric. Some people want to send a second much larger piece than I recommend or possibly a third. This is strictly a shipping/packing issue. I'm sorry if some of you are disappointed but I'm sticking with the small 6.5 x 6.5 inch piece. Remember, it's supposed to be up to the block maker to make what she wants to make with your f8. Many of us have begun strictly directing the finished product with multiple fabrics and that's seriously infringing on my ability to ship easily. The harder it gets, the less I'm inclined to do it. My other option is to tell everyone I'm going to only use boxes to ship at over 14 bucks a pop. That's a lot of extra money. Anyway, until everyone says they're ok with nearly doubling the shipping costs, I'm saying "no" to larger second and third pieces. I hope you all understand. Thanks!

    I’m good with the limit Janice. I also appreciate the reminder that we want to keep things as open as possible for block making, to encourage creativity and that the block is from the blockmakers mind as well as her hands. (Does that make sense?)

    Thanks, PamelaOry. (Yes, it does make sense!) Part of the problem is that while I want to keep things a bit simpler than they have been recently, I want everyone to have what they want. Cannot happen! LOL. I'm appreciative of everyone who is able to understand the rules and abide. Boomers are the best!

    Janice, as always, I'm good for doubling up in the 2 month group. I'm also good with the smaller piece of a second fabric. My F8s are ready to head your way, $8.00 well hidden in an enclosed envelope for my return postage of my F8s to play with.

    Sure is nice to see this many new Boomers playing this time! Welcome to you all.

    All of my fabrics are washed, dried and ironed. I just need to get paint chip samples and write a note for each. The little pieces of fabrics I had leftover from cutting my f8s I made 6 blocks so far to go into my quilt. This will help me tie all the blocks together since most of my group are getting different pieces.
