    Question, does it have to be the same fabric for all 36 pieces?

    Hope not. I've used twenty-five different fabrics.

    I hope not because I'm going for 2 different quilts in this swap. 1)Batiks, I pulled those tonight from my stash and I think the 2) one will be brights but not 100% on that one yet.
    This is going to be fun, I just hope I can get them all done in the time frame with the other things I have going. I was hoping we would have til the mid of August but doesn't sound like that right now.

    Ladies you can send whatever amount of different fabrics that you want to. if you want to send 35 different ones that is great, 35 of the same great too, 12 of one and 23 of another also great-it is entirely up to you :-)
    We will see where the deadline falls once signups close :-)

    do you know about how big the quilt would be with 18 blocks? I am bad at trying to figure this out.

    I am still deciding on wether to use 2 fabrics or more

    18 would be a little uneven unless you did it 4x4 with one block in a top corner and one in a bottom corner as a border. This would make the top about 72 x 72.
    Hope this helps

    18 12'' blocks would be 3x6? So that would be 36x72'' plus borders, right? I'm thinking I'll make two, too...

    Oh cool, cross-posted and I didn't see it until now. Nice idea, too.

    Or perhaps 4x5 if I make a couple of extra blocks for each one? I don't suppose there is a quilt law that says boomerangs can't have your own blocks in it? :lol:

    Would it be a good idea for me to send my F8s in envelopes big enough to put a 12x12 block in? Just wondering whether people tend to reuse envelopes to send the blocks home...

    (Excited, excited! I've cut my fabric and I have plastic bags... did I post this already?!)

    Wow you are ahead of me. I did pull 24 batiks last night for one of them, but haven't got the others pulled yet, let alone them washed, pressed and in envelopes, but I definately plan to have them at that stage before we get our lists, I want them hitting that mail as soon as possible. If we have to make 35 its going to take all the time I can muster.

    LOL Salmon
    You do not have to worry about the envelope being big enough to be reused.
    This is a very exciting swap-I have my fabric picked I just have to wash cut and stuff lol

    I don't know of any "blocks" I could even do ... accurately ... and I'm just now getting the cutting and the sewing a straight line down ...

    Once I get some practice in, I'll be joining one ... :D

    Well, since I have the night to myself tonight, I will likely go through my stash and see what I can find, wash it, dry and and maybe press it all tonight so I can start to be ready to send them out!

    I also want all the time I can get to make these blocks!

    This swap is a great way to expand on your skills so jump on in. Everyone here started somewhere :-)
    I might be able to be bribed to send out the lists of names I already have so you can start addressing envelopes Nikki LOL

    I figure if I take from the stash I currently have now, it will make room for all the fabric that is coming my way! LOL

    And I might take you up on that bribe...I will let you know ;) LOL

    What fabric is everyone choosing this time? If you went with a solid in 1.0 are you continuing with a solid or changing it up to a print? or the other way around?

    I really enjoyed working with all the varieties last time and am trying to decide what to go with for 2.0.

    Show us some pictures if you've already decided.

    Thanks!
