I'm IN!  But before I choose my colors, I need to go back and look at my stash.  I'll try to choose something that adds variety.  Also, has anyone determined the fabric requirements to make 16 blocks if you're using yardage instead of scraps?  I see the supplies list and I can certainly do the math, just figured I'd save myself some time if anyone has it figured out already.  :)

I want in this swap.  My first choice would be brown and blue.  That's what I have in my stash, if that doesn't work, I'll have to go shopping for fabric next weekend after I get paid.  I would have to get back with you on that.

Wow, almost want to pull out of this swap and keep my blocks, but I won't.  Why didn't I use this fabric before?

 Thank you, Kathy!  why I never used that fabric before I don't know.  given to me about 7.5 years ago by a neighbor, was her mother's  who had been gone a few years.  

Ok, I have a rather strange request for those in this swap.  You know those little corner pieces we (the off triangle from the side units composed of Color 1 & 3 squares with color 1 rectangle) cut off of the 6.5" piece, when we make the Flying Geese piece.  If anyone is just throwing those pieces away would you save them for me?  I'm going to make small pinwheels for my border and since it's scrappy, would like the border to be also.  I know its crazy but it makes a cute little 2.75" HST.  Thanks!!

Kathy G - would you rather everyone send them directly to me or can they go in with the swap?  If it's too much, just let me know.

Ok, here's what i intend to do with the little pieces I asked about.  They make a 5" block I would like to use as my border.

I think those little pinwheels are just beautiful.  I will gladly send you my scraps to use.

Had another question posted regarding what fabrics go where...is the tone on tone fabric 1, 2, or 3?  I had intended for the tone on tone to be fabric 3 but in looking at the directions, I can see how that could be confusing.  I am recommending that everyone lay out their blocks and go with the sequece they prefer; however, please be sure that all of your blocks use the same layout.

Hope that makes sense..it sounded better in my head :)

Carolyn: I sat and figured out the yardage measurements and came up with 3/4 yd. for both fabric 1 and 2, and 1-3/4 for fabric 3.  I hope that these are correct, as I don't do the math part too often, but that's what I purchased so......  if it's wrong...I'll need to head back to the fabric shop.....but I think it's right!!  :)

I was looking at our list...only 4 slots left.  The color choices are looking really good.  I think we are probably full with blues, turquois, purples, and pinks.  I think we could use more greens and golds if anyone is thinking about a second set....:)

I will change mine to the lime green and purple.  I like that combo better anyway.  Then we will have a green.

Candis-

I made the color change for your first set and added your second set to the list.  Way to go for the gold! (Sorry, couldn't resist *LOL*)

Only 3 more slots...I hear those machines starting to hummm...

I know that you all wait with anxiously for the next tidbits of wonderfulness from me but...

I have been called out of town for work this weekend starting tomorrow and not returning until Sunday night.  I will try to check the website and email but may not be able to access or respond until Monday morning.  Sorry to disconnect for a few days but cannot be helped.

Carry on faithful quilters....carry on!

PS...before I jet...there are two more very cool swaps open at this time...a mug rug swap (it may be full but I think if enough people sign up they will open a second block).  There is also a pillowcase exchange using spring fabric.  These both look like a ton of fun and, yes, I signed up.  Can't seem to get enough of swaps.
