John, I wish I could have your eye for choosing fabrics! I love every set of fabrics you're sending out! the sets with blues in particular Smiley

Gordongirl, I love your selection too! I adore your pastel palette~

Yay! partners! I gotta catch up and sent out some fabric!

Here are the fabrics I'm sending. I'm sending everyone the 3 solids  on the right (Teal, seafoam, and gray. They're really pretty together. I love the teal especially, looks better in person Smiley) and a print from my leftovers from the last swap Cheesy



I would really love contemporary, non-traditional blocks made mostly from the solids with only a bit of the print.
I'll cut these up and send them out tomorrow! I'll get started on making some blocks for myself too.

Yikes, I need to get on it. It sounds like a lot of work to wash all the fabrics and get them cut up for sendouts  Grin

I love looking at everybody's fabrics!

Here's a pic of my fabrics:



Helpful Hint: I'm going back through the posts and making a note of any preferences my partners have stated. For example, ritapizza wants contemporary, non-traditional blocks. I already printed up the lists of partners with their addresses, so I'm writing notes beside each name.

Crap! I just looked through my black and white fabrics that I was going to use for my second group, and realized I already cut up a lot of them. I'll have to go to the fabric store tomorrow, nuts!  Grin

I'll probably end up with an entirely different color scheme!   Grin

That is a SUPERB idea!

Everybodies fabric looks so fabulous, I'm getting really excited.  I'm posting today, or mailing that is, as many as I can get finished.

Cheers!

I love the fabric everyone is choosing.  I am in love with both rita's choices as well as Johns!  They BOTH have excellent eyes in my book. Wink  I am going to pack up a few tonight and send some out.  I will see how long it takes.

 Smiley  I love your fabrics EVERYONE!  wow! I can't wait to start seeing them for real Smiley

I'm in 3 groups so I got 2 different sets of fabrics - I'm going to send these:

These fabrics:

I'm sending to 2 groups to make a bigger quilt (24 squares) for ME!
I love, love, love the purples right now.

I hopefully will be able to get them cut and sent out by Thanksgiving!
