I am sending a combination of greens and purples to the two groups I am in.  Each is approx. 9x9 or a little bigger and each person will receive a combination of 7 different fabrics.  I kept finding fat quarters that I loved!



There is a variety of designers including Amy Butler since it seems that several of us like her designs.  I also gathered fabric from Mobile, AL and Denver, CO so my fabric has already traveled a little bit. Smiley

I had a blast raiding my scrap pack and also adding it to some of the bigger yardage pieces I have.  I am hoping to be able to do that with the other fabric packets.  I just got my box from fabric.com but I am going to wait to open it until after I get more studying done, for a reward Wink

I am an incredibly chatty organizer, this is the problem with me studying on the computer all day ;P

But I wanted to remind everyone,

the block size you are making is 12.5"

When the blocks are sewn together, they will produce 12" blocks.

This is pretty much the only important requirement of the swap because otherwise there will be blocks that are too small to fit with the others ;P

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.

I realized that my picture was blurry so I uploaded another one. 



I am planning to make a quilt for my bed at the end of the swap and my bedroom is purple, green, and browns.  I have this wadded up down comforter that I want it to coordinate with.  It is too warm for the summer with no air conditioner!  I don't want it to be matchy-matchy but look okay with with it.


I know there is no orange in the comforter, but orange has been finding its way in all of my rooms recently so I think it will work.  Plus, I just really liked those fabrics.
