    Since Batiks seem to be the overwhelming choice, here is the second part of the vote. Please vote for:

    * 2 different colors per block
    * 1 batik paired with solid black
    * 1 batik paired with solid white

    Thanks!

    Thanks for your vote(s). So far, 1 batik with solid black is the front runner. We'll see. . . .

    I initially thought 2 batiks with black but after auditioning some batiks I am in favor of 1 batik with black. Thanks Jane for giving us input in this decision.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I have been watching this thread, debating with myself if I should join in the fun. These blocks will make great quilts! Found a link I thought I would share for more inspiration. Check it out www.northwestquilters.org/bom.html

    Booklady and Dottie Dodge - - we would love to have you come play with us. The December black/white/brights is still open! I'll post the January swap 12/20 and it's going to be BATIKS!! Lots of excitement about that one.

    Great link, by the way. It's good to know 'like minds think alike'. LOL I have some very similar plans for February.

    Do we get back one of our own blocks? Or should we make an extra one for us to keep?

    Make an extra for yourself. I'd already asked this question too

    I'm such a visual person, so since I've never made this particular block before I looked at wannaquilter's & jaba's beautiful blocks to see if I switched them correctly. The placement on their blocks is not the same, so which is right? Or does it even matter? Thanks for setting me straight!

    I think they are the same. They are just laying a different way. Give one of the blocks a quarter turn and the placemnet is the same.

    Dec. swap Brights fabric question

    Ok -- I have a question about the 'brights' for the December swap. I was thinking the brights are really bright and not pastels or prints (except very small prints.)

    Attached are the choices I'm using... no pastels or large prints on the bright fabrics. Are these good?

    Please clarify?

    Yes, brights, not pastels. I'll leave it to the group to decide about the small prints.

    Stitch124, I think your brights read as solids-- which seemed to be the goal. They look similar to the example Jane posted at the beginning of this thread (post #2) and would blend well there with those blocks. Maybe not your red fabric so much as the others. I like your black on white choices and the 2 white on black choices that are on the bottom of the stack! Your blocks are going to look great! :-)

    Maybe I need to change some of mine also to more bright. Let me know I can make some more blocks. I'm just a "matchy" person. I went from light to dark. Tell me which ones to change ladies.
