I went to the shop yesterday to get some wool  for my MIL (best knitter ever) and I saw some really good fabrics especially a jungle one...sadly I didn't have the time to stop too ong but I'm definitely going back soon...they're on sale Grin
As for my quilt I have a vague idea of making an attic window.

Sign ups close tommorrow, so if you have been lurking and considering, then send in your questionaire before it is too late!

I'm going to to my quilt in blocks of 25 with every alternate square being a tone-on-tone plainer print. I'm going to quilt as I go too to save a huge quilting marathon at the end. I was hoping to start in the new year, but now I'm signed up to 4 swaps and have an eye on a fifth and I'm not sure if I'm going to have time for my eye-spy quilt! hehe!

Are the fabrics required to be pre-washed?  I guess it wouldn't be a big deal to wash the squares when they get here since a little shrinkage would be okay for what I plan to do.  But I just wanted to ask.  All of my fabrics are prewashed since I wash them as soon as they come home, but I wanted to make sure.  I know some quilters prefer to not have their fabric washed.

In the last swap, lots of people objected to the pre-wash requirement, so it was removed. However I wash ALL my fabrics as soon as they come into the house a always quilt with prewashed fabrics to avoid uneven shrinkage in the finished product. I guess that if it is really important to you you can just confirm with your partners if the fabrics have been prewashed or not. At least by requesting a 4.5 inch square when you need a 4" circle as you have done is the best way to ensure that you have enough to allow for any shrinkage.

I also wanted to mention that there are a huge number of great swaps being launched in the next couple of weeks and I'm sure you are all keen to join in with some of these more challanging swaps, therefore I would like to suggest that we all try to send early as there are a lot of international swappers and I will give feedback to each individual as soon as I have recieved PM's to confirm that they have recieved and that their packages have been recieved by their partners. Hopefully the postal service will pick up it's act in the New year and deliver a bit more speedily!

I managed to get some time to myself tonight, so I have cut all my squares. Off to the post office tomorrow afternoon anyway, so as long as I get them packaged up, then I will be popping them in the post tomorrow!

I will start a gallery soon too and post the link in the first post. We had a really nice gallery last time. I think most people took a photo of All the squares together and then a closer one with their 6-9 favourites in it. It would be great if you could try to take a picture when you recieve and post it there for the rest to see. OR if you are a speedy sewer, I would love to see some of your i-spy quilts!
