    Here are the two I'm sending out. They are companion fabrics and I'm planning to use them in one quilt together. My thought is that I'd like these to be used as background fabric, then when I assemble the quilt I'll alternate blocks - black, cream, black, cream, black, cream - in a 6x6 setting. I also might piece the blocks directly together without sashing, but then use rickrack on the seams to visually separate the blocks. I've never done that before or even seen it done, but this fabric is kind of girly and I think it would be a fun accent to the flowers. These fabrics are so much my colors. I love the basic reds, yellows, greens, and blues. I'd love to see pictures of what you're sending out too!

    I am a peanut & peanut butter M&M nut! I was like a drug fiend one day at work trying to find the hidden stash lol
    sew Cornie I love those-can I make a request for the cream one? An idea immediately popped in to my head when I saw it.
    Here is what I will be sending out for myself and Izabella.

    I've made a note that you'd like the cream. I need to start cutting!

    I love what you're sending out. Those will be fun to work with!

    I guess I just kinda played it safe ... or cheated ... however you want to say it. I had just gotten a bunch of FQs from Nancy's Notions and I cut enough of those in half to make up my F8s so there is really an eclectic mix. There are 2 of each one and I am really looking forward to seeing what I get back. Will prolly have to use some sort of sashing to tie them all together ... or not ... can make another hodge podge.

    Argh. Just realised I made a stooopid cutting mistake and now have three F8s that are only 9'' wide instead of 11''. Would they still be large enough to send, if I also send the 2'' strip that I cut off in error?

    Lovely fabrics!!! I probably shouldn't even be looking!! now I can't wait to start playing with ideas, and I know I'll have to wait for another three, four weeks at last until I get my eager little hands on them....

    I love all the ones in your pics and I do love brights, too.

    Here's mine.

    Love it Salmon-one of my favorite colors!
    I do not think the 9" will make too much of a difference-you can send one of the smaller ones to me if you want. I do not mind I will make it work lol

    Salmonsweet, that's beautiful! Do you want us to stick with the colors contained in your fabric or would you prefer to see other colors added? I can work easily with a smaller cut so you can send me one of your 9"ers if you'd like.

    Since you're across the pond, I can mail you my fabric early so you won't have to wait so long for a squishie to arrive. You can PM me your address and I'll drop it at the post office tomorrow. (Is that okay April?).

    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

    Ok I don't feel so bad now hearing that others have their fabric, washed, iron & cut & in envelopes. I finished mine last week.
    All I need is names for the envelopes and out they go!!!
    I am getting so excited!!

    April, howmany do we have so far do you know? I'd be concerned about it getting confusing if you send out lists now and more join unless you plan to make 2 separate lists.
    I was hoping to wash my batiks and get them pressed tonight but I'm exhausted so it might have to wait til tomorrow night.

    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!
    I am sending only from my stash....no new fabric this time around! So it will be a variety of all my favorites. I am shooting for an awesome sampler quilt made by my friends!

    April,

    Please count me in!

    For any beginners who are on the fence about signing up, just do it! I learned so much in this swap. It was tons of fun and everyone is so great! You can choose your own patterns to make so there is no pressure. You'll love it!

    :)

    My question for this...How many yards do we need to get the 36 FQ? I'm gonna be looking for my fabric this weekend. Is the swap still open?
