Here are the fabrics I think I will use for my quilt.

I bought the two on the bottom right yesterday, and those will be in every package. The one on the top right is from last round's apple quilt. The 3 on the left are fat quarters ( or less Sad) that were in my stash. I think I might have to add a solid or two (gasp! I NEVER use solids). I might also trick the boyfriend in to going swith me to my most favorite ever Japanese fabric store where everything is at least $10/yard but it's all so painfully cute you can't resist. We shall see.

Hi everyone-

We've only got 10 spots left! Tell your friends, because spots are filling up quickly.

I will be updating feedback tonight for the last 3 who've signed up, everyone else should have 'in progress' in their profile now. If you don't, let me know and I will get that going right away.

OK, everyone - I jumped off the fence!  I mostly don't know you guys (and vice versa) b/c I haven't been too active on craftster for the last year due to limited internet access.  BUT, I'm back!  I'm 26, unemployed in between opportunities, and have been quilting for 8 years.  Hi! 

OK time to pick some fabrics...!

If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.

Ashley your fabrics are awesome! I love love love them! Now I need to pick out something that rocks!

Sorry I've been the silent co-organizer!
To anyone thinking about joining DO IT!  This has been my favorite swap of all time.  It's not that time consuming - I hand quilt and I got mine done in plenty of time.  Plus you will LOVE seeing everyone else's fabrics, blocks, and the gallery is so inspiring.  I only signed up for one group last time and I was soooo mad at myself for not doing more.
On the subject of fabric if you're worried you don't have enough- as others have said throw in a solid. I did last round and I got a lot of good feedback that it A)was a good idea and B)I think it helped tie everything together.
