    I bought my white fabric from the store yesterday, and I will be using a fabric from my stash for the "corners".

    That sounds like a neat idea to do for the back of your dear jane. Will certainly give it that special touch with a quilt of such work.

    I am in on this one. i definitely have the fabric for it. i will need to just work on some cutting. Maybe one of the gals at my quilt group will cut the 4.5" squares. I have lots of 2.5 squares cut up. Sew simple it is.

    My Quilt Board BFF requested I post and show you what I'm doing with the corners I cut off my squares. I'm sure many of you do this as well. But here goes.

    I simply make an extra seam toward the outside of the first one. When I cut between the seams I have a small HST? 64 Siggi squares should give me 128 1"ish HST. The pictures should help and give a sneak peek to my siggi blocks lol.

    If we don't get the numbers anticipated, what if each of us that signed up made 2 blocks. Is that a possibility?

    ok I answered my own question be Reading ALL the posts... It is late and I am losing it! Tomorrow I will look through my stash and see how I am set for White or WOW. I should have plenty as I collect black and white FQ's... and I have a lot!

    It looks like a fun swap and especially I recognize so many names from other swaps, we are just one big happy family! OK I am off to bed.

    Sweet Dreams,

    Maybe if we don't get enough people to sign up we could just make the 16" blocks and then send them to trade. I'd be willing to do that. Just a thought.

    I already have one set in the house so changing sizes of the block would not work- also I am sure others are working on them - so we just need to drum up more business
