    I love that fabric! I used it in a baby quilt earlier this year. So cute!

It is hard enough to come up with enough fabric to do a whole lot of blocks just by virtue of the size we are already working with. if you send pieces then you limit your block and the creativity that goes into it. I am fairly sure we are to send one piece but maybe that has never been addressed.
    I have to agree with this! Also sending the 18 X 11 is a whole lot better to work with than 9 x 22. Also shaving of some of the size required to send in a smaller envelope is not good cause it makes it harder for us to make a decent block.

    I received some back in 8 Boomrang that had not a correct number where a certain amount was shaved off and most so with the 9 x 22 which made it hard to make a decent block with smaller sizes.

    I think if I received pieces sent equaling either 9 x 22 or 18 x 11 I'd return it to the person and ask them to recut it properly if they wanted a decent block back.

    It's really a no brainer rules state a ONE piece either in 9 x 22 or 18 x 11. Rules do not allow us to send pieces amounting to a certain size. That certainly takes away from our ability to make decent blocks if we get pieces of fabrics equaling one size amount.

    This will be my first "go" at this, but it looks like a lot of fun. Will take it easy with one small group on the regular schedule (sent email yesterday). Already worked on picking my fabric and am getting excited seeing the other fabric choices! Love yours frenchfryqueen.

    Nice fabric Frenchfry! and seeing it used in a baby blanket I noticed while one chose blues and greens to accent you look like you went for the golden accent. Its cool how one fabric takes everyone in a different direction and the end results are totally different from each other.

    My favorite part of this swap is all the variety of fabrics we receive. I put my envelopes as they come in a box, write the received date on the envelope so if they get mixed up I know which ones get worked on first (order of receipt) then.. when I am ready for the next block .. I open that envelope and its a surprise! tada! today your working on flowers! next cubes! and so on. If I peak at them there is always the tendency to want to use the 'easy' ones first. so never peak or your stuck with all the tough ones at the end!

    Catgirl, I love what you did with the fabric! I always think it is fascinating to see the grownup blocks together, and all the different fabrics everyone picks to use.

    Last swap, I put all my F8s in a stack as I received them. I looked at them, stuck them back in their envelope, and did them in order of receipt. Some blocks were harder to decide on than others, but I feel like I only sent out blocks I would want to get back.. and I think that's all any of us are looking for. Anyone who is nervous about being a beginner.. don't be! It's all in good fun and skill levels, and some of us who seem confident are in the same boat as you. *raises hand sheepishly*
    The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow. Do good anyway.

    I must have missed a post as I did not see one about sending two smaller cuts. This is generally only allowed to be done if a member asks their group and people say they are willing to use them. I will double check and see what I can do
    Love the fabs FrenchFry

    Here are my sets of fabric -
    one is very colorful fish
    the second group will get either bubbles or waves with a small block to coordinate but not necessarily use
    I am working on children/baby quilts this time and thought these would be fun (plus I had the fabric!)

    Hope you all will enjoy playing - there are so many colors so you all should have something in your stash.

    Got my material figured out. Washed, cut, ironed, folded and in envelopes. I have Easter, St. Patrick's Day, Patriotic, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Some are one fabric (St. Pat, Easter and Thanksgiving) and the others are several different fabrics. I got some of my Christmas fabric from the Secret Santa swap last year and some of my Patriotic fabric from the recent FQ swap. I love this site.

    I will entertain holiday preferences if asked and I still have it available. Now all I need is the lists of names.

    ArizonaKat, if I am in your group, I prefer either the Thanksgiving fabric or the Christmas fabric. I don't think I have anything else in my stash that would work for your other holidays. I even used up the last of my patriotic for the mug rug and dq swap this time.

    Ok, the fabric collection I wanted to use came cut 9 x WOF and I cut it to 9x 22. Thought this was a great way to get a vintage sampler. But looks like this cut will be a problem so maybe I better drop out of the swap...maybe next time.

    I also am dropping out of the swap, I had a death in the family and will be out of town for a while, then straight to camp ground for two weeks.

    When I get back I might do some side swaps since my fabric is ready to go, but will check back to find the interested parties!

    Actually I am looking forward to being disconnected for a while, I find I spend way too much time on this computer so this girl is going back to nature for a few weeks!

    Have fun~
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    I think I'd like to be added for another small, fast group. That will make it 1 regular small and 1 fast small for me.
    Got my fabric washing as we speak, so it'll be ready shortly. BTW- love that fish fabric.

    I can work with 9x22. We had a few in the last swap and it didn't slow me down a bit.

    I would also be willing to work with two pieces but the block might be less detailed.

    9x22 is fine. I hope you don't let that keep you from participating. ---- Jane
