Micki, I would be interested in this swap. I have looked at this pattern and put it in my 'todo' file...I will be gone the end of July/first of August but will be checking after that. This would be fun!
The block is easy and fun...can we chose a color???
I am probably going to have everyone choose colors.
Do we want to choose 2 colors ( 1 for each side of the block ) or just choose 1 color and a neutral color for the other side?
I was thinking that it would be kind of neat to choose 2 colors. I am still wanting to make a pink and black quilt and might make this my oportunity to do so.
I will also leave the scrappy option open if anybody wants their blocks scrappy.
I would chose 1 color to match up with a neutral...I think...such decisions!
I think it's a great idea for a swap. Depending upon the timing (and whether or not I'm caught up with a few other ongoing swaps and projects), I'd like to participate.
sophie ... whichever way you decide to go on picking colors ...
Gosh I wish I could join in with this one, that looks great. My DD is getting married in October though and I have her dress and cake to make (as well as my own) so I am being strong and not signing up for anything new.
Good luck and have fun though.
Hi! I've been off the forum for a while (guess I've been too busy with all my other swap blocks and about 1000 other projects...LOL)-- but this swap sounds too fun to pass up! Count me in when you get it going! Fall would be great...
Nice idea for a swap, Micki. I probably won't join in (am resisting joining block swaps until some of the blocks I have are at least joined into tops - notice I said "some" and not "all" LOL). Personally, I like the idea of having people pick two colours, but it would work well with one and neutral, too. Also a pattern that would look nice scrappy. I will follow along with interest!
1000 projects? yep you need another one <g> your not over commmited until you reach 1050 projects! <g>
keep checking back, I will probably start sign ups at the begining of August. ( after my nephews wedding is out of the way)
Sorry that you won't be able to join us. ( unless you decide that you haven't reached your 1050 projects and can take on 1 more.)<g>
I did make one of the these blocks and they are soooo easy! the worst part is after you cut the 4 strips out of the blocks to arrange them the right way. and that just means that you can't just grab and sew. I did find that to make sure that I kept the strips in the right order to sew, I used a piece of felt ( that I just happen to have sitting around for another project) and transfered it to my sewing table on that and I didn't have to make sure that I had the strips in the right order again. I made it with black and pink fabrics and I love it!
I am going to make another one with more scrappy and neutral fabrics and see how it turns out.
