This block is good for using up extra half-square triangles.

I just sent my info!  I hope I made it as the 6th person. 

I wish I would have known about the first round.  My mom has been begging me for a wuilt for a few years and this year is her year to get one.  What a great way to get it done quickly fo rher.

Is it possible to request that my partner use different fabrics for the squares?  If not, that is fine I just thought I would ask since she really wants a "really scrappy" quilt.

I think most folks are using several different focus fabrics, I don't know if your partner will be able to make each block different or not, but you can ask them to use as many different focus fabrics as possible, of course, and I am sure they will do their best. Don't worry, we have more swaps coming, with different fabric themes, all using plain white background fabric, so that you will be able to collect all diffferent types and sorts of fabric styles but yet still have a unified background, so that all the squares will work very well together, no matter what kind of crazy blend of fabrics you have!
