    I scanned my fabrics last night and I think I will send out my favorite 3 (different) fabrics in F8s. That way, I get 12 Blocks back for 3 different quilts. Color me excited!!!!!!

    i envy those of you who can make a decision so quickly about what to send!
    I'm awful with that.
    :-D
    I go back and forth about sending a focus fabric or a background fabric.
    I'm one of those matchy matchy people so there's no way I could just send out 36 different fabrics from my stash. I have to have something to tie them all together. (That's one of my resolutions this year to work on being comfortable with scrap quilts.)
    I'll figure it out eventually! :-D
    I will have to order something so must get busy.

    I'll plan on one quilt since we may not get 36 swappers.

    If so, I will send out 2 different materials!!

    How do you work 18 blocks into a quilt?
    I would think 3x6 would be an odd size.

    If you add sashing and such you can do a 4 x 4 center and use 2 blocks in the opposite corners top and bottom. I am actually going to use a panel in the center in each of mine and then plan the 18 blocks around it perhaps with some setting squares or something :-)

    And Susie-think positive-we'll get 36...I think we can I think we can lol

    This is just waaaaay more exciting than I had hoped it would be...and we haven't even really had to do anything that can't be undone yet! Geez, I had never even thought about making 3 quilts...pretty smart, MadQuilter, I knew I was going to learn something...Thanks! And susiequilt's indecision was another revelation..I'd not even considered choosing background fabric (neutral)...but I can see how that would be very interesting...of course, I'm one of those that thinks LIME is a neutral...teeheehee! Anybody else wondering when the rest of our Boomerang Gang is going to sign up? Come on yall, you know you don't want to miss out on this...

    It is sooo exciting. The possibilities are endless really when you think about it. Nancy in LA said hey if this is popular maybe we could do one every three months then we would have 4 tops for ourselves by the end of the year-or if you decide to split it into 3 tops per swap it would be 12 tops!
    And the colors are always a fun idea. I am sending what I would actually like to be used as my background fabric for the swap and then have people add co-ordinating colors :-)
    And you definetly don't want to miss this one-it is going to be an awesome swap!

    It would be nice to return the left-over fabric to the original person so it can be used in a border. Or even a block or two for the back (can't remember what pieced blocks on the back is called - back art?) Anyway, there are cute borders that can be made out of the left over scraps.

    I'm thinking a 3x4 layout to start and add my own if I want to. That would actually be 3 quilts.

    Good idea, just not sure there's time for additional blocks since we already make 36.

    Mad,
    i think she meant if you sent back the scraps each owner could make blocks for the back if they wanted to.

    This is going to be a great swap!!
