The fabrics I picked are Alexander Henry's Birdseed and solid white, yellow, medium gray and dark gray. I sort of flew by the seat of my pants on the sizes of the pieces I sent but they are basically all about 15" x 6", except for the dark grey and that is 7" x 7" (since it is more of an accent color).
My general plan for the quilt is to use it on my queen bed so I am hoping that everyone will make a 14" x 14" block. I am planning on sewing 4 additional blocks to make it 4 blocks by 4 blocks with sashing in between and a nice big border. If for any chance, I didn't send enough fabric for each of you to work you magic into 14" x 14" block, feel free to go smaller. Also feel free to bring in fabric from your own stash if you want to spice things up a bit.
I did a little research on flickr and in my fabric books for inspiration. Here is a mosaic of some cuties - I am really digging the wonky lines of these quilts. I had trouble adding these two quilts to the mosaic but here are links to two more inspirations as well.
I sent out the fabric on Friday so hopefully you will receive it in the next couple of days. Let me know if it doesn't arrive soon.
