    Not sure if I have everyone's name.
    I'm wanting to make sure.
    If your name isn't on the list...PLEASE let me know!!
    I'm trying to start the label for each quilt.

    Here is who I have so far and if I've recieved your block, there will be an X by your name.
    We have a total of 40 people. That means 160 squares total, plus there are some that are making more than 2 sets, which is nice of them to do.

    I'm going to lay out the squares I have so far and get a picture. Will also show the pillowcases I have that will go with the quilts too.
    Let me know what you think......

    Here's what we have so far.
    I only used one set for this.
    Right now it's 5 across and starting the 4th row.
    I also have these pillowcases too.
    They aren't white, they are more yellowy in color. The camera doesn't do them justice. If the cases were to be in white, I think it would be much to much against the quilt. What do you think?
    I do have some "fun" pillowcases already done that have funny cats on them. OR....I have some calico prints that I found laying around that I could use. Can wait until quilt is all done, then match for pillowcases that way....Someone/anyone...give up some ideas!! :)

    the pillowcase isn't really as yellow. You can see the "true" color of it in the pic with the quilt inspector.

    I think the pillowcase does go - it kind of picks up the colours in the blocks without being too 'in your face'. BUT I like the sound of the cat ones - can we see those?!

    Ok, here are 2 others that I had sitting on the shelf. I made these for the craft fair I did last year. They both have cats on them, but one also had some dogs too

    My helper has to be there too!

    This shows full length but the colors are actually the colors shown in the other pic like this one.

    I like them both, but I think the more muted colours in the first one go better? Is that little Monique peeping there!

    The quilts are looking great! I also like the first option of pillowcase. I think they will look very nice with the colors in the quilt.

    Looking good so far Terri. I like the 1st pillowcase you showed..OR the more muted kitty ones. Are you going to make both quilts and the lappy all scrappy or are you going to try to go one more pinkish...one more blue/green-ishy?? Just wondering....

    Depending on how many squares there are, I could hold out maybe the blue and greenish ones and use those for the lappy for the dad?
    What I laid out was just what I have so far....there are MANY more coming. That was just a sample of what is here.
    I figure by the end of next week, I should have maybe all of the squares so I can lay them out and get them together.

    I agree with the first pillowcase. I think that will go much better with what we have in colors for the quilts. I think the other 2 might overpower everything and we don't want that.

    Just keep the ideas coming.

    I can't read my own writing! lol
    Yes, I have yours. The package was stuck under one of the pillowcases and I didn't see it when I was checking off names on my paper. Sorry...didn't mean to upset you. I have them safe and sound! :)

    I had written out a new list on bigger paper and the checkmark wasn't transferred to the new list.
    I'll be updating the list probably around Monday/Tuesday. Should have a lot more by then.

    I guess we should send money so you will not have to pay for the new mailman's horn all by yourself. I assume you have warned him what he too is in for? Everyone in your communitee will start talking about what is going on between you and the mailman. LOL

    I couldn't imagine how the layout would look with all those different fabrics. It is very pretty and I agree with the "softer" look of the pillow cases.

    wow that was fairly quick ....I was afraid it would take forever so had my package sent priority.....glad you let us know it is there already.......:-)....as far as the pillow cases go....just don't know on that one.....the softer one looks great for what you have so far.....but guess it would depend on what the rest look like..

    I too, vote for the first pillowcases. The kitty ones are cute but too bright for the colors of the blocks.
