Ok, Mrs. Doodles, post us some instructions and we are on our way. I just ordered my fabrics online and I already have the Kona so.......Hurray!

Doesn't Doodlebug have the best instructions?

Just a reminder--no need to register, get on a list, or ask to join--just make those blocks and send them to Shannon!

She is super organized and will send you back 30 different blocks from all over the world! I'm making one block today to time myself and see if I can participate.

good question-

you can make sets of groups within the (30) block set- say (6) groups of 5 blocks each that are all the same.

if you make all your (30) blocks completely different, there's no need to send them to me to be swapped for scrappy ones...you already have (30) scrappy blocks:P

i have always wanted to make a 30s repro quilt, but i've not wanted to start stashing 30s repros....this is my sneaky way of getting the scrappy 30s quilt i've always wanted....and you guys are going to help me with that :)

Instructions has a little glitch. Center "T" says to cut (2) 8" and sew (2) 3" to each side and cut 3"wide. This only cuts total of 28. To make the 2 shorts, I cut 3" wide (WOF) x 16" sewed 3" x 16" White Kona to each side then cut in 1/2 to make the 30 center "T".

I am doing (60) and have cut all and sewn CENTER "T's" cut it took about 8 hours so far. Now just to mark and sew HST. Hope to have that all finished by tomorrow.

This is so fun. Thank Shannon, now I get my scrappy 30's without having to stash a bunch.

I started mine, and didn't have quite enough fabric of some of them. I sure was glad to see the post that we can fudge a little and make some sets:D I really didn't want to waste what I had done so far, and I really wanted to use up my left overs from a previous quilt. I'm about half way done.
