Wow, Milica!  You are running neck to neck with me!  I raided boxes of fabric today that I haven't looked in for months!  Dragged out armloads of fabric and tossed them in the washer.  Hung some on the old drying rack and tossed the bigger chunks in the dryer.  Have a few of them pressed and cut, and will continue working on them in my spare time.  So far I have 18 sets cut with at least that many more to go, and there is a lot more "stash" to look through!  Don't know yet what I'll make with my sets after the swap, but I'll think of something!

Good afternoon Cindy

I want in on this one. I'm going on a bus trip tomorrow to 4 different quilt shops so I will be on
the lookout for fat quarters. I figure I should be able to get 2 sets out of a fat quarter hopefully.
I'll PM you how many sets I come up with next week and also my info. Now.....wise women of the forum---how many flowers does it take to make a queen size quilt? Also I think this could be a
good way to build up a stash for nine patches....just a thought

Thanks for offering this swap---think will be really fun and interesting

Genia - I saw on another website that it took 1,800 hexagons to make a queen sized quilt.  It was not mentioned the size of the hexagons.

Hope that helps!

Thank you Sally.

I have cut 36 sets so far but I know I still have fabric left over from the sweet sixteen swap and a few odds and sodds of fabric in my stash still to go through.  I have seen a few patterns I would like to make up but intend to use these to make my mother a large lapquilt (and insist that she uses it and not put it away)

Haven't had a chance yet to take pictures but I've cut 50 sets so far and just tossed another armload of fabric in the washer.  Most of this is fabric I've had in totes for years - most are large pieces so I can easily cut off a few squares to share.  Most of mine is small prints with a few solids.

Nola,
Sound like you fabric will be perfect for me--I'm doing my hexies in 30s but cut florals (because they were already washed!) Might just have to cut a few more since I just washed more fabric so I could make blocks for here!

Milica, loved the blue/white diamond hex quilt from your quilt show piccies. Pity I already sewed together sooo many regular flowers!

Sally, can't you just cut a few more hexes in each flower's colours and add them to two opposite sides to make the diamonds? Or would that not look right? I need to check that pic again!

I'm thinking my 12 sets is tooo little - need to do more, once my room is set up - the shoulder/neck is doing a bit better, but still not gone.

Well Ladies

I have just gone through my stash and pulled out another 20 fabrics of which I will be able to cut 2 or 3 sets from not counting the sweet sixteen fabrics - wil not post piccies until I am completely done and ready to post!
