Hi, I have just joined the group and this looks like it would be fun. I have the summer off and this would be a way to use some of my stash. I can't wait to get started.

I turned to hubby and said, "Would I be nuts to join a fabric swap where I would need to sew 240 HSTs?"  He said, "Yep, you'd be nuts."  So I thought to myself, "Well, I won't join if I don't see that I have enough fall fabric in my stash."  I just checked, and I have enough fabric.  Then I thought back to other fabric swaps that I've joined and remembered that I have been disappointed in some of the fabric I've received, but I'm encouraged at how you are stressing the need for quality fabric and accurate sizing.

So, count me in!

Now I'm off to my psychiatry appointment....   LOL

I am so excited about this swap. I do not have any fall fabric at all. So darn it, I had to go shopping. On line of course. I just ordered my fabric and can't wait to see it. Happy sewing everyone.

Yeah, Susie, I don't want any blood on the HSTs you send.  LOL

So, if this group doesn't grow much bigger, do you suppose we could roll into the first group?  We wouldn't have to sew any more HSTs - just put fewer HST's into more baggies.  Example - if the current six participants from group 2 roll into the 16 from the first group, everyone would divide their HSTs into 22 baggies - or 11 HSTs in each.  That will give us a scrappier look.  Just a thought...

This is the kind of quilt I'm hoping to make with my HSTs - in fall fabrics, of course.  It's a pretty straight-forward pattern - there's just one block.

Hello MNnancy, what a wonderful quilt. With a swap, there will not be a deciding fabric as this one shows, but I love this pattern, it is really striking in these colors. love your border print. Seems that the border fabric is the main fabric in the brights Am I right in that? mercy the more I study it the more I want it.. lol

as far as joining into group one, I personally think it is a fabulous idea. 11 each is still a good amount. What's a few baggies right? I vote for that if Roxana wants opinions. Good suggestion.

Nancy, yes, it's a good suggestion to combine groups but I think it's best to at least wait and see who July brings to the second group first. I still think others may join this group. Great thinking.
