    I think I'm on the list. I'm too new at this to get all the "supposed to's yet". Are you supposed to return the unused part of the fat 8th to the owner after you make the block?

    How many fat 8th do I need? I think I might have the perfect fabric. I've never used fat quarters or cut any. I'm not sure what the best way to cut a fat 8th is either. I'm sure there must be a trick.

    If we keep the left over peices, can we use them in a different block for this group?

    You only have to return the unused part of the F8 if the sender asks you to.

    You would need 35 F8's to send out.

    The easiest way for me to cut them is to cut my yardage into 18" pieces, I then cut a sliver off of the folded edge, and then I cut that in half to get my 11 x 18 piece. Do that 8 times and your done! Another way may be easier for you, do it however works for you.

    Oh MJ-you are too funny! We are almost there only a few open spots to fill!
    Lab Fairy-I need you to send me your information via PM to add you to the list :-)
    Barb-of course you can be in on this one-so happy to see you back with us!!

    As far as sending back the extra fabric generally you do not. You can use it in other blocks for other members if it works for it-no problem :-)

    The best way to cut the F8 is to cut your fabric into 18" strips and then cut it in to 11" pieces. Hope this helps!
    Updating list of swappers now.

    PS Thank you for making me smile!!! You are always so funny! I love you!
    Whew! I'm awfully glad I checked in yesterday ... as soon as I saw this, I started to PANIC :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: because I didn't see my name on the list. :-( :-( I mean, I nearly dropped my teeth on the floor (and I don't have dentures, so you can just just imagine how much that hurt ....... :cry: :cry: :cry: (and how unattractive I'd be without teeth ..... ugh!)

    I nearly cried.

    And then I realized that you didn't INTEND to leave me off the list ... it was just an oversight, right? :oops: I mean, I hoped that's all it was! Of course, it's a little tough to overlook the big lump in the front of the classroom (me), but I know you were probably looking away toward the horizon to find any NEW blood .....

    That's why I was hopping up and down and waving and shaking my bootie......

    so sorry to make the ground shake around you ... but I just HAD to get your attention somehow .....

    Okay, I'm done pouting on this subject for now ... you're the best! Thanks for getting me on the list!

    MJ -- hold your horses, girl! I know you're excited, but stop pressing your nose up against that window! Your poor husband is going to have to get out the Windex again...... Sit on the couch with you pompons ......

    Have a terrific day, ladies!

    Haha you guys are funny. I can tell I'll have a lot of fun with this one already.

    Quick question: If I want to send out fat eighths of all one fabric, how much yardage do I need? I calculated about 4.5 yards... is that right? My LQS is going out of business so if I fall in love with something I can get a great deal.

    yes, 4.5 yards. Buy MORE if you want either sashing or borders.
    I found that one out the hard way in Boom 1.0. :shock:

    I have found it is better to go with 6 yards just to be safe-especially once you wash and cut the selvage off..sometimes it is easy to get 4 f8s from a half yard and other times I have found I can get 3 comfortably so that would take 6 yards.
    Hope this helps. I think you will have an awesome time in this swap-everyone here loves to laugh and have a good time and be friends :-)
    MJ...you know leaving those nose prints is no fun for DH to clean!! But I know he loves going to the mailbox for you so a fair trade off I think lol

    Yes, My DH mentioned today when he came in from work that no matter the cost, he wanted me to do that "Boomerang thing" cause he loves to bring me happy mail! This was a picture of him yesterday...

    purplemem, you are too funny, you and your husband make a good couple, you with your nose on the window, and him with his head stuck in the mailbox. Too funny.

    MegsAnn,

    Theoretically, if you have 1 yard of fabric, you should get 8 fat eighths. But April is right, once you wash it and account for shrinkage, it could be a bit less.

    Here's my personal experience: I actually bought 10 yards for 2.0 (I will use some of the excess for borders/sashing/cornerstones and/or pillowcases), and this time I bought 14.5 yards of coordinating fabrics, some of which is already earmarked for borders. I will send out a variety of fabrics to everyone, but they will all coordinate with each other. I'll definitely have enough to piece a backing, make a wallhanging to go with the quilt I make, make pillowcases, bags, whatever my little heard desires! Yay! (Hey, when you can get it for $2.49/yard, how can you pass it up???)

    Oh, and for everyone from 1.0 and 2.0, who must by now consider me to be the "Paisley Princess", I'll give you all a hint: these fabrics are NOT paisley! I know, right? I'm working outside my favorite comfort zone!

    Odessa

    Awesome. Thanks for the info ladies! I looked through the photos from 1.0 and 2.0 today and noticed several people did 2 or 3 sets... instead of just one big 35 block quilt. Hmmm... choices, choices. :^)

    Oh!

    I wish I could play... I already have my fabric! I just don't think the fall semester will play along with me.

    I'll be watching this one, and will be ready for 4.0

    We'll miss you. Study hard and hopefully 4.0 will work for you.
