I would be interested in the next one too. I vote for Civil War fabrics, but what ever wins will be good too.
Just wondering where the poll is to vote?

Thank you Rebecca for the push. I needed that.

I heard back from Cindy, and we have a "go" for another swap.



Time line looks like voting right after Thanksgiving (Nov. 25 for non-USA residents) and swapping in January. Now, to find the rules and read up on the time-line suggestions.

If you have ideas for what to swap, I'm still 'all ears'. or is it headphones? lol

Annette

any volunteers to host...just need to keep me on track...

Jeri, blenders are fabrics like tone-on-tones, marbles, and teeny prints that look "solid" - like red on red, blue on blue, cream on white, white on white, green on green.

Gerda, thank you for the definition. Jeri, you got the best definition I can think of. Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Maybe, when we do the poll, we need definitions for new people who may not have joined us in the past...? What does everyone think?

Thank you. All I could think of was putting fabric scraps in a blender.

That's funny, Jeri! But totally understandable from a newer quilter.

Speaking of blenders, have any of you seen this line from Clothworks?? I'm working with a dozen or so of these fabrics for the sample for the quilt shop http://www.clothworks.com/collection.asp?ID=216  

This doesn't totally show the fabrics, though - they blend from dark on the selvedges to a light in the centre - great for applique!!

OK, if you click on one of the colour squares, it does show a full strip

The quilt download you see on the left, is the top I'm making - cool, huh?

Gerda, wonderful fabrics. Though I am totally off fabric purchases I will bookmark those. I just love working with that kind of coloring. About 10 years ago I had half a dozen half yard pieces where the fabrics shaded to different colors. The line was called Auroa Boriellias and totally reminded me of the Northern Lights. I just loved those but have never seen anything similar since. These would work for my latest yen and it is not applique.

Gerda, love the Shades. Nancy Z. used them on one of her shows a few months ago and I feel in love. Aren't they wonderful. Do be sure and post a pic of the quilt when it's done!!

Gerda,

I love those fabrics and have not found them in any of the four local stores. Lucky you!

Hey, if anyone has a few spare dollars left, and needs more black/white and white/black, these guys have a FQ bundle for $17.50

Just sayin' :)
