Ashley, I agree that the string star is BEAUTIFUL.  I love how you handled the wood grain fabric.

Check my reserved spot in the gallery for the Kung Fu Panda reference!

She's only two and a half but I just couldn't resist the top fabric... it's my favorite... 

OMG glittergirl, I am blushing that I have to work with that fabric!   Embarrassed   There is a guy in this group, remember?! 

Just kidding!  Actually, I work in the field of brand management and I actually managed the Bali brand of women's undergarments for Sara Lee for a year!  You can imagine the types of meetings I was in ... ... ...   Embarrassed   Embarrassed   Embarrassed

whoopdedoo, no issues at all from me if you'd like to make some of those blocks from my fabrics!  a note of caution to anyone making these blocks -- be sure that your outermost borders of the block are thick enough to handle the 1/2" seam allowance once all the blocks are together.  if they're not wide enough, that last layer could get lost in the seam allowance.  i would plan for the outermost borders to be a bit wider than the rest.

Here's a quilt my friend made using exclusively midwestern moderns, some of the same color pallete too: http://flickr.com/photos/linsayd/2467282651/in/set-72157603750509196/  (there are other photos in her flick that show it better)

Wow, that quilt looks NICE.  Makes me even more happy with my selections!

SewHelpMe, I am excited to have the opportunity to work with your City Girl fabrics.  I've often admired that line at the store and have considered getting some for a gift quilt.  I think it's going to look great!

OK, I pulled together images of the fabrics I'll be sending.  Whoopdedoo, I'm also using Midwest Modern fabrics!  I guess we'll get to play with each others' selections.  These will be supplemented with some solids.



This was my first attempt at uploading a picture in Craftster, so I hope I did it right!

I TOTALLY agree with athenamat.  Homerof2's fabrics are great -- I have a soft spot for those ruler fabrics.  I LOVE them.

SewHelpMe's fabrics are beautiful.  That will be a stunning quilt.  All 3 blocks are great (i have to check that book out, too!), but I actually really, really like the third one the best!

I love that the visual stimulation is starting already.  It makes me want to run home and start working ...

Wow, all of these fabrics are looking great.  I was really tempted to use this swap to make a Christmas quilt, but decided against it at the last minute (mostly because that would require buying a lot of new fabric, and I was trying to use some of what I had).  But now I'm questioning that decision ... ... ...   Undecided

Here's a question (which, if it's already been answered and I missed it, I apologize).  How do people feel about the block-makers pulling some fabrics from their own stash to use in the block, if they feel it is a really good match and/or will enhance the look of the block?  For example, seeing some of the fabrics, I already know that I have some coordinating scraps that might add a cool element to the block.  But I also understand if people don't want that (since I don't think I will, for this particular quilt I am making).

Is this something we should explicitly state "yes" or "no" in a note when we send our fabrics?

athenamat, I LOVE the Dick & Jane fabrics.  Those will be a blast to work with.  And I love that variety -- throw as many small pieces in there as you want ... I'll try my best to work them in!

Audrey, your fabrics look great, too.  In fact, I think I see some in there that I'm also using in this swap, except in different colors!  I'll try to get a pic up ASAP.
