I finally have some fabric parceled out for each of you. I just need to add in the white and pop it in the mail--hopefully by monday. because everyone will only get a small selection of fabrics, I thought I'd show you the range of what i picked out of my own stash to use. do these photos help?
Final measurement requests: please make a block that is 12" high and up to 30" long. If you'd rather make two 15" long pieces or 3 10" long pieces, or if you don't feel like making a strip longer than 12" (or if the fabric I've sent plus the scraps from your stash don't make anything longer than that) then that's okay by me too. I'll create whatever i need to finish off the quilt. the colored strips should all line up on the "bottom" edge of the block(s), but they should all be different heights with the difference made up (to make the full 12" height) with white fabric. If one or maybe two of the colored strips is the full 12" height, that's fine. Thickness of the strips can (and preferably should) vary as well. I'm hoping that these instructions (plus the diagram I posted before) will be clear. If anyone needs more explanation, or has questions, please let me know. I'm very excited to see the blocks you create!
