I thought Id share the quilt I made for my friend with the elephant fabric! Unfortunately I never took a picture of the whole quilt, but I did take a few pics!

Thanks, everyone. 3 down, 16 to go!

Signups will close tonight and all fabric packages are due in my hands by the 20th. That means you need to mail no later than the 16/17th if you are using priority mail. That is one week away... I know you can do it!

My fabric is all bundled, messaged, tagged and ready to get mailed on Monday. I have changed my mind about colors and goals. Everyone gets a different colored blender from my treasures found at the Goodwill outlet store. I did wash in hot water and scentless detergent. I have no fur babies in my house so no dander to affect allergies in these packages. Here is the majority of my message in the F8 baggies:

I have decided that this fabric is going to be part of a science/jungle-themed quilt for my ten-year old granddaughter. She is a scientist already and is not all interested in what I consider traditional “girly” things. She is an explorer, too, and her favorite color is jungle green. So, I am thinking that the joys of science and the jungle – lots of green with splashes of color from birds and flowers, critters and bugs high and low, vines, trees, flowing rivers, waterfalls, etc. If you need different inspiration, she is a soccer fanatic and Saints fan, too. So many possibilities! Sunbonnet Sue (in pith helmet, of course) climbing a pyramid in Guatemala is a block I am working on, for instance. Quilt blocks do not have to depict science/jungle/sports either.

I am sending a 12.5 x 18” sized fabric to everyone in case someone wants to do applique on a 12.5” block like what I am doing. I have no color limitations and however you want to use the fabric I am sending along is perfectly great. I know your block will be beautiful no matter how little or how much of the fabric you use.

As soon as I am happy with my Sunbonnet Sue block, I'll show it to you. Cheers everyone!

Wow, so many pretty colors, Ibex, and so many ways to go with it. My head is reeling! It will take some thinking to find the right block to make.

Terri, a sunflower table runner sounds lovely. I'm getting so excited about this swap starting soon!
