    I understood it to be same pattern but different fabrics are ok.

    OK Here you go-

    sets must be same design, but fabrics may vary.

    Go for it. I can't wait to see what you are making. Yes, please fussy cut. In a previous swap I got a wonderful block but there were only chicken rears in it because the center block was not fussy cut.

    Sorry haven't been on for a while. I threw my shoulder out and my arm has been going numb. It is much better and I go back to the doctors tomorrow. Today I didn't do absolutely nothing. So hopefully in the next few days can start on my blocks and also my finish up my side swaps.

    The block sets need to be somewhat the same. Like all the blocks that are shown in the all had to with veggies. I think that is cool. I don't feel they have to be same colors just the general idea. (Like if doing tractors they all don't have to be one color). But need to be 6 of the same in one set. I hope you all understand.

    OK - thanks for the clarification. That helps a lot as I would have wasted so much fabric if the fussy cuts all had to be identical. I should have something to show by Saturday.

    Cute! I want the hind end of the horse one! My mother's favourite cuss word was "horse's rear end". I'm behind but the first set is cut out and hopefully will be sewed this afternoon.

    We just lost 6 sets someone needed to drop out. I really hope we have more to sign up. I know we still have time but getting to worry a little. This is my first time doing this and was hoping for it to be a huge success .

    So how many participants do you have and how many sets of blocks?
    There are still 2-1/2 weeks to go so maybe others will join. It might be the word "funky" is turning some folks away? I have no idea what that means but signed up anyway.

    Funky just means like pigs flying or maybe cows riding on a tractor. Just whatever anyone came up with or they can be normal blocks too. Spread the word everyone get all your friends to come join. Everyone is welcome and you can make you blocks normal or funky. It's what you choose. I'll get a list together to let everyone know how many we have.

    As it stands with only 5-6 people and a total of 19-21 sets, anyone signing up for more than 3 sets will receive duplicate blocks as there won't be enough different blocks to go around. I really don't care to receive duplicates. So, if there are not enough signed up by the deadline for at least 30 sets, I will probably withdraw also. But I'll wait until the sign up deadline to make a final decision. Maybe more will sign up.

    If everyone still wants to do it we always can knock down the sets too. I don't blame you i don't need duplicates either.
    Maybe if we can get our blocks done everyone will see and want to join.
    I am truly sorry to those who wants to do this and we just don't have enough people. But the dead line is not here and I will think positive.

    Ok you can't have the picture of my puppy Harlie. She is so cute and little . She actually weighs over 50 lbs now. Don't know how I got that picture in there. But she fits with the theme.

    Owlvamp - I am willing to make fewer sets or more types of block to try to make this a good go. Keep me posted. :-)

    Awesome that's what I am thinking to. Just do fewer sets so we all still can do this. I have almost all my blocks finished. So when your blocks are finished just PM for address and on the 19th will let you know what's up.

    Owlvamp - are you turning under the edges of the appliques you are doing? It might be my monitor, but it looks like raw edges with a straight stitch going around the applique piece? I don't do applique, so am no expert, but I wonder if you are leaving raw edges how the block will hold up being washed numerous time?
