    All 12 should be same # of blades, right?

    thanks...

    :thumbup: :thumbup:
    Yes, I believe it is 16 blades. PP is fine, could you applique' a couple of leaves on though to make it resemble the flowers? Welcome to the swap!!

    The background is white, cream or pale yellow whatever you prefer, the blades can be any color combination you want, I would expect at least two different colors or two hues of same color, or as many colors as you want!

    Very pretty! :thumbup:

    Mine are ready to mail (if you're ready), but I probably better wait a few days. A tornado wiped out my town two nights ago, and although the post office is delivering mail where they can, everything's a mess. I posted pics and a couple of videos in the personal diaries section. It's just been unreal. My family is safe. No major damage for any of us. Many weren't so lucky though. :(

    Thank you for offering. My family and I personally don't need anything at all, but one of the local news stations has a page set up for those who would like to help. Here's the link:

    I am still on the looking side of things. I have a graduation this month so not sure of time. Will keep this in mind. I will be a late mailer if I do joing. i love the dresden plate. Made one from a set of antique blocks I received and added some contemporary. was an old/new quilt. Was wonderful to quilt on longarm.

    It's not that Deb, I had to give my poor fingers a rest. I have been working on my hand appliqued blocks for the Affairs of the Heart group and my fingers were sore. Had to go back to the machine and give them time to heal..... :lol: :lol:
    P.S. The fall ones are already cut out.....you know me....over achiever that I am.

    And I have picked out the holiday fabric I will use to do the blocks for the holiday. Since you did spring and fall I decided to add holiday/winter to give me 40 blocks for a big quilt

    Just take a look outside and see what is blooming now. .. pinks, purples, yellows, oranges.

    And don't forget the leaves. :roll:

    I love it. Mine is a darker pink and darker blue. It looks real pretty together I didn't use pastels hope that's ok.

    I don't think the color matters! I am excited to see what everyone comes up with. I shopped for my fabric out of my stash.
