I'll take cream. Does the wrench need to be the black? I'm new to this group as well so forgiveness is a must! Sounds like fun! How do you go about putting your name on the block?

Well, I'm slow. There are both wrenches. Does it matter where the black is placed? It does, doesn't it?

Does this mean that 1 yard of each color will make the 12 blocks?

Roxana--I think that 1 yard of each will make all 12 blocks.  I didn't do the math, Caryl Anne did it for us.  But I always buy extra, just to be sure.

I have you for the cream.  And yes, the black wrench can be either side :)  Don't worry, I did the same thing.

Hello again.  I was going though my stash for my blue and black and I also came across a nice brown as well.  If you like I can also do the brown block as well.

have a great day.

Let's give this a few more days...so that the ladies in Branson have a chance to sign up.

If we don't get anyone else, then we can go ahead & play with our fabric :)

Thistle--if you want to double up, you certainly can.  Please confirm for sure and I'll update the master list. 

I know I'm not on the list yet, but I plan on taking one of the left over colors.

I can double up and add the silver if you need me to. Is it still available?

Ok I'm scared to screw them up....ok I think everything I do could be better but I think that's common. I would like to chose orange, teal or silver(can it be a gray?). I'm sorry if I'm too late. 

I'm a material girl....Want to see my fabric collection?

Hey, hey!  I'm able to get back in!

I'll update the list.  Rhonnie, it's a fairly easy block.  Just measure carefully, and use the 1/4" seam.  You will be fine.  My only suggestion is to make one with scrap material first.  I do this for all my block exchanges.

Great idea Susie. The four patch calls for a scant 1/4 seam. Do you think the triangles do as well?

The pattern most likely calls for the scant throughout.

 

I have sent out my home address to everyone that has accepted my friend request.  If you didn't get my address, it's because I can't send you a private message until you accept the friend request.

We are full...Roxana, we may need the orange block filled.  I am waiting to hear back from Liz--her participation depends on her vacation schedule, lucky gal!

Let's set April 30th as the mail date.  If you have them done and would like to mail early, please feel free.  I can certainly hold onto them until I have them all.

Have fun with this one, ladies!
