I'll play. I will post my fabrics after I shop. The "same color fabric" should be two different fabrics with the same color, right?

I am thinking about it. Shannon, everyone needs to make sure that they have the stars turning in the same direction. I did a swap once and they had the stars going in different directions. Just a thought. ;)

ok - so if i send 2 sets, i get back twice as many blocks~ that will surely be enuf for a queen sized quilt???

how will these fabrics work? its a stash buster for me so i can change it if you need me to. just let me know. thanks for organizing!

sidenote - i am so behind on my Christmas chores & what am i doing instead??? :P:D:P:D

meg- looks good...if you do two sets you'll get 60 blocks back...at 9" that would be a 6 x 10 layout, so 54"x 90" with out borders...so a small queen....but a nice pieced piano key border in there at 6" wide would give you a nice queen size...

Meg; forget the swap! Instead, sell me your blue fabric that is next to the black/white polka dot and I'll take that really deep red too!!!:D:P (PS...whatever you do, don't tell Shannon I sad that!;))

Dory does have a point. If we just give each other fabric...then that constitutes as a swap...and it leaves my stash and adds to yous! Awesome idea doryfish!:)
