Make 4 units for each set. You need to do at least 3 sets. More that that is welcome. Maximum for this swap is 9 sets.

I understand the first paragraph.

On the next paragraph:
I understand that I make 4 RF (say red/white/blue) and that will equal 1 set. For my 3 sets (of the same fabric I think) I make a total of 12 r/w/b RF (4x3=12) = which is 1 of 9 sets that I can send in???????

Then I use 8 other fabric combination to make up 8 more sets?????

IS THE LIGHT IN THE CENTER? OR DOES IT EVEN MATTER?

Last time she posted anywhere here was on 2/27. Shows she's online now. Hope everything's ok

I hope that she is okay also. We haven't heard from her. Perhaps soon we will.

I wasn't sure that the 3 sets of four small block units (12 blocks units)needed to be the same color combo. I'm thinking scrappy so anything goes in my mind. Just need some direction and I am ready to start sewing. I have lo\ts of 2.5 strips already cut.

Sorry for not posting sooner!

It is up to you whether or not you want to make 4 units using the same color. I would however prefer that you do not use the same fabrics for all 9 sets.

Quiltinghere, since this is scrappy it doesn't matter either way. Yes, just make the 4 units that you'd normally sew into a block and then don't sew them together. You can choose whether to use same fabrics(for each 4 unit set) or not.

Hope this is clear, if not, pm me.

I'm in.

Havplenty 03-05-2011 01:26 AM

Ok I am in for 9 sets. Sending PM now. My fabrics will be very colorful and mostly contemporary prints. I hope that is ok.

quiltingbee12 03-05-2011 05:14 AM

Great!

Please make sure when you sign up to put number of sets..

OK for final clarification for this blonde.......for the 9 sets.......I need 36 (3- 2 1/2 X 6 1/2 inch rail blocks). [4 x 9 = 36] Yes???? Whew!!!!

To my understanding, (4) completed units measuring @ 6.5" equals (1) set......is this correct?

And the minimum total sets to make per swap is (12) units Or Sets..., equals (3) Not Sewn together blocks, is this correct?
