Info sent Smiley  I'm super excited about this one.  I've been doing projects lately to work through my insane amount of stash products, so this is perfect!  I've got a box of scrappy fabric cut into strips ready to get started lol  One question though, are we doing a specific size block for our blocks or is is up to each person?  I'm personally fine with multiple sized blocks so long as I have at least a couple of each size, or all one size works too.

I'd like to stick w/the parameters of the tutorial for this swap.  I'm not very experienced w/piecing and quilt making and it would make it easier(theoretically) to put uniform swap blocks together this way.   Wink
I'm open for chatter on this and all aspects of the swap!

You are in Kwiltykate!  There is a growing list of takers on this project...yeah! 
I will have to get cracking on my WiPs this week and dedicate next week to sewing.  I will have my daughter here...I wonder if she'll want to make one for herself??  I have lots of fabric, but most of my scraps are blue in color, or denim...still blue, but not for this project!
After SU's end...look for the partner lists...and be ready for some fun!  I think it'll be fun! Grin
Please, introduce yourself and chatter at will!

I currently have a stupid amount of free time lol  I spent some time last week going through and cutting strips of fabric scraps, so I'm all set to start making squares!  I should let my future partners know that I mostly have pastels lol  I have some darker colors too, but mostly pastel girly stuff lol

Excellent Princesspimp81...I think the best part is the scrappiness of this project!  We are going to have some one-of-a-kind quilts at the end of this... Cheesy  Hope you enjoy the downtime craftiness while you can!  Are you in school otherwise?

Are there any requests for certain colors from any of our members??(I've had one...)
Also, one of our members does have a helper-kitty and made me aware of it...are there any w/serious allergies??
I have kitties, too.  

I'm ready to chuck all my responsibilities this week and play in the fabric!  But, I will wait and enjoy company and family while I can! =]

I am so excited to do this swap!! I've been lurking around the swap boards for quite some time now. I never had the time to sign up for one since I started college but this one came at the exact right time! I have a whole month off between semesters. I've been feeling that school has stolen my creativity so maybe this is a great way to kick start it again.  Grin

I have kitties and puppies too
