Sorry this is my first time to play. The only color that we "MUST" use is the cream - tone on tone. I can chose the other colors but no black/brown? So I can do green/blue/purple? I don't have to use cheddar for the center block?

For some reason when I first read this thread I thought we had to use a cheddar for the center with a brick and was it blue or green.

Thanx for your help!

I want to encourage everyone to measure your blocks so we all get the right size.;););) Have you ever gotten blocks you had to add "coping" strips too? It works out but it is much more fun it they are ready to make into a top. When we did our spinning stars blocks EVERY block was perfect!!! It was WONDERFUL and the top looks just so good! :D

how about prints - florals specifically - are we allowed or must the fabrics read as one color?

you can use any fabrics as long as they are not predominantly brown or black...

Hi girls! Can I play? I just opened the directions. Love it. Make mine bright colors.

Just wanted to let you all know I'm still alive- just now getting on with my life again. (Don't even ask).

I want to apologize to everyone who is participating in the block exchange. My blocks did not reach Doodlebug until yesterday. I live on the coast of Connecticut and lost power, internet, etc. etc. during hurricane Irene. Shannon was kind enough to wait for my blocks which I so appreciate but regret not getting them out before the horrific weather hit. I got so caught up in preparing (Ha!) for the storm I forgot to get them off to her.

This is my first swap. I'm so excited and a bit worried. I went rather conservative with my fabric choices, hope they aren't too boring! You can always use them on the back!:D

Thanks, everyone, for your patience.

And, Shannon, congratulations on your marriage. You were a beautiful bride! Loved the pictures. Just wondering which Elvis music was playing when you walked down the isle
