Roxanna, I'm going to do this second group too. 

Now I'd better start on making HST's!

Roxanna,

I see we are starting to recruit more members from the first group.  I think people are starting to figure out that to make a quilt similar to the "Tickled Pink" shown on the last page, you need 500+ HSTs.

SO I NEED MORE HSTs!!!  I could sign up for a second slot in this group, but that wouldn't achieve much - I wouldn't get more variety of fabrics.  Could someone in the first group be moved here so that I can add my name and be in both groups?  I suppose I should post my request over there...  Okay, here I go...

That makes sense to me. Go for it! If you don't get a volunteer, I can contact some of them individually. Keep me posted.

Jacy, welcome to the second SWAP! I've got all my squares cut out for both groups and papers pulled but not pressed and squared yet. It really doesn't take as much time as I had imagined! Just be sure you use different fabrics.

It's in this month's new McCalls Quilting, pages 56-58. The July/August 2013 issue. It might be on their Web site too. It's called Tickled Pink. It says in the magazine that you can seeTonya Alexander's designs on her blog, eyecandyquilts.blogspot.com.

To Those of You in BOTH Swaps:

Make sure that you are using different fabrics for each swap. 
AND
When shipping me your packages, please label your baggies as Group 1 or Group 2. Also mark on the outside of your envelope what group is enclosed.

Oh frabjous day!  (Any Lewis Carrol fans out there?)  I'm in both groups (thank you CarylAnn!), and as my reward/punishment, I get to sew 480 HSTs along with some of the rest of you crazies!  Thanks, too, to Roxana for making all the arrangements.
