    I am busy getting my blocks cut as well. Fall seems to be the perfect time for CW quilts!!

    Yes, yes it does. In fact, I had another scrap/planned nine patch variation I finished the blocks up for. This will be the fourth quilt with these "leftovers/UFO" squares. I am very glad will be done. Then I will get my blocks sewn up and in mail to you. I have not been able to work on them since I cut them all out the beginning of the week.

    jillnjo, you and I are thinking the same thoughts. I would love to hop in on this one but I need to be honest in my time assessment - I have a couple of big events coming up that I need to prepare for.

    But, I keep watching.

    best,

    QUOTE=jillnjo;5396071]I'm watching this thread and like what I see! I may hop in, but have plenty going on. I'd have the fabrics I need after making my FWife quilt. I stashed the leftovers all away! Love CW themes.[/QUOTE]

    I got all but 2 of my fabrics yesterday. I can't speak for the two I still need to purchase (I went with faulty #'s) but everything (so far) is from the Civil Wars Tribute fabric line. The cool thing for me is I have the CWT BOM (not finished - heck, not started) so this swap will blend nicely with that quilt (if I ever finish (or start) it).

    Yes, yes, yes I am.......I find that if these are made one little set at a time - there isn't any pressure at all!

    And if you want to make all of your blocks out of only two or three fabrics total, that is okay with me as well. No need for 6-7-8 different fabrics.

    It was very clever of Deb to only have us make 4 Double T blocks...that's entirely do-able. I am done with that set...now drumming my fingers waiting for the postman to bring me my new "old" fabrics! LOL! Course they have to be washed and then I can made my other 2 sets. This has been super fun so far.

    Yeah we "twisted her (jillnjo's) arm"--er I mean convinced her it would be a good thing. Welcome.
    This morning have been putting the Double T's together. I have my setting already planned and plan on adding a couple of other blocks to round out the design. Oh and those leftover HST's from the DT flying geese--what are you going to do with them?

    I'm making tiny pinwheel blocks from mine...perfect for the AAQI quilts or that perfect little accent block. What are you doing with yours?

    G.- Yes, you all are to blame!! I have 2 other swaps I've sent out my blocks for already and I fear my problem will become getting quilts made out of the blocks I collect! I like the suspense of seeing the blocks everyone makes and then getting them for myself! I like to "touch" fabrics, you know!

    rwquilts-- I was thinking something like thisName:  CW Swap HST 3 block.JPG

    Shoofly corners, F ship star, Churn dash corners, broken dishes, or how about using making this spool block with scrappy string threads in the middle. They would finish at 3 1/4" if the HST are 1 3/4 cut.

    Finished the 4 Double T's tonight and a sample of the spool block from the leftovers. Will probably wait on the S of VA until later as I have company coming and have to get ready.

    sharon b, think the 4 blocks of shoofly should take about 20" of main color and 10" second color. Anybody correct me if I am wrong. I know DT's took more than I thought they would--haven't figured that out though.

    Here are some of what I have for Civil War Fabrics have others but do not think it is a big enough piece. Have to choose so I can get them washed up as I do not normally pre wash. (I have a Civil War BOM I started 2 years ago did not get to far). Collecting but never used them now is my chance

    Frustrated, you have beautiful fabrics!! I love the blues in the top row! And that bottom right corner brown one-yummy.

    OK- I love your T's and that spool is perfect! Great ideas, as always!
