Carol, that sounds like what I am doing. I am starting to consider settings and the overall size of the quilt. Lots of ideas floating around.
Thanks everyone for the great swap!

This swap has been lots of fun Smiley  I think I want to join the next round and pick a specific block for it.  I found a turtle block pattern that is pretty awesome that I think would be fun...

I would love a turtle block swap!  I have a kit I bought years ago waiting for just the right person to get me inspired to start sewing it.  It is all batiks and the turtle heads are stuffed and kind of lay on top of the quilt.

I think I have made up my mind LOL.

I thought at first I would just make them both throw size and use them on my couches in the family room. The girls love to curl up as they are watching tv. But as hubby pointed out. I have tons of throws in there already.

So I am going to turn both of them into quilts for the holidays.  I shall do the shoo fly and the abstract as quilts for two my three step daughters.  As you can tell from the images below I will be making more blocks to get them to size I want them...

They shall be lovely, I like this swap so much.

I have been playing around with layouts on my EQ7 program and think I have it worked out.

looking forward to getting the last two block packages and adding my own and getting them done.

figured I would toss in what I have been working on with the EQ7, which I am still learn all the neat things a person can do with it. I like the program a lot.

Peek at what the quilt might look like with the blocks from Group 4 the Abstration Block I picked

Love both of those, Carol. The abstraction block gives an optical illusion effect depending upon whether I'm focusing on the light or the dark fabrics. Really like that!

I tend to be a traditionalist, so need to put the shoofly block on my to do list. Love the scrappiness of it!

That sounds awesome!  I love turtles so a turtle-y quilt would make me silly happy Smiley

princesspimp81 I liked the shoo fly block, something about it just feels like home LOL. It has a calming affect. It is one of those blocks I like to look at. I like the old block.

I like the new blocks too, I don't think I have /found/ my style yet. I just like what speaks to me at the time. I have found I like bright colors and to mix them in way I don't see to often.

Like my samplers I love to just throw colors together and see it work in the end LOL

Blocks for donniesgirl have been posted.  The contrast between the background and the white-on-white animals in the pin tuck block is much less so in person.  And the yellows in the echidna block just a bit less bright than in the picture.

the echidna looks wonderfully scaly combined with the water print Cheesy
