    If all of you look at the first page of this thread, I have posted a pic of Robert's Fall Dresden Plate. Thank you Robert for allowing me to use your block as the sample pic!

    It is a very simple block to do, though it is not one that you can rush through. I found that the best way to center my block was to fold my background fabric in half then into quarters, iron about 2 inches in from the edge, and I could line up my plates that way. I cheated and did the glue stick thing.....every other petal/plate I put a little gab of glue to hold it down.

    i do the glue thing too.

    i also tape the template to my rotary ruler (one on each end so i have both angle sides) and then i can cut everything quickly.

    I do the glue thing, but love the tip on taping to my ruler. Never thought of that one.

    i wish i could use them for the background but i only have a few FQs of the Fossil Ferns not enough to make 12 blocks.

    i wonder if i could make my own fossil fern type fabric - i've never done sun dyeing before - i might give it a try on a 13 inch square and see how it comes out.

    would it be ok to use hand dyed fabric in the swap?

    i use procion dyes and kaufman kona cotton PFD fabric.

    Just as long as the hand dyed will not run...I know we put alot of time into our quilts and such.....I have not ever used hand dyed fabric, (that I am aware of) so I don't really know what to tell you. Someone else help me along with this....

    i'm almost done with my blocks. here's the pics - there's 4 of each colorway.

    hope you guys like the blocks.


    deb - does 2 sets fit into one package with the $4.95 stamp? if so i'll just wait until this swap is ready to ship and you can send me spring and fall at the same time.

    yes, two sets will fit into the FRE. I fold them individually, and that works best. I have the bubble envelopes and they are very nice for these types of swaps. Please make a note in your envelope about sending both spring and fall.....

    I am starting to assemble and had a couple questions.

    Can muslin be used for the background block?

    All plates must be identical??

    Will there be one for winter - I'm already looking at fabrics. lol

    thanks

    I believe Robert is already doing his Christmas as well. This has been mentioned not sure if Deb is ready for that one yet. LOL

    "Make 12 blocks alike, you will receive one of yours back and 11 different blocks. The petals should be of fall colors, with leaves. Background could be beige, tan, darker yellows, pale golds - no white please. The blocks should speak 'FALL'."

    I believe the key word is alike using the pattern that was set.

    Hope that helps.

    Yes, Robert said he has already for the winter swap. I won't post that will later later on..... I was going to do two different swaps - one white, blue and silvers for snowflakes, and reds for pointsettias. At this point, I am not sure if I will do two winter sets or just decide on the blue, white and silvers.

    i like both ideas for winter but if we're only going to do one the blue one works for all religions and could be used for the entire winter season.

    I think I will wait to see how things shape up. It may work out that I will do both. I may toss in a twist with the pointsettia block....still having lots of ideas popping in my head.

    My - two sets!!! I am leaning towards that as some may have a specific quilt design in mind (we are just SO organized in our thoughts), like the plate pattern but perhaps not blue or not the red color theme. Patrice thinks I am just nuts. :oops:
