Task 2 Saturday Agenda Well Under way!

Man oh man, am I on a roll this morning or what? Hee Hee! I have cut out all the fabric (that I have) in the light blue and white strips for the Mixed T block for the Rainbow Sampler Quilt Swap group 3. I'll put in pics of the fabric cut now and then after I get it going and I KNOW for sure that that's what I'm supposed to be doing as I sew it together, I will put those pics in as well! That way you in group 3 that check back here can see what your light blue square will look like.
Step 1 cut the strips
Edited to add steps 2-7:

Step 2: lay fabric right sides together perpendicular to each other

Step 3: Draw line from corner to corner

Step 4: You can see line drawn. Sew ON this line

Step 5: After sewing, trim to 1/4"

Step 6: Cut strips again so that they are the right length and equal widths

Step 7: OK these aren't all trimmed, but after all are trimmed, start laying out so that the square will look something like this when sewn together (HOPEFULLY) :) And here I thought I was choosing an easy square to do for this swap! LOL

NanaBarb I want you to know that I have heard your plea for group members and have answered the call (if no one else signs up) for group 4 members. Try to convince Barb once again to do it--since she said that she really really wanted to!

Anyone else that hasn't signed up for this quilt swap, there are 4 spots open (I think) in group 4. The deadline to sign up is January 26 (that's Monday). This isn't a hard one, just do the same block 9 times, send them off, get 1 of your own and 8 others back for a rainbow sampler quilt. What more could you ask for?

Shelly, your quilt blocks are going to be so pretty. I love the blue swirls next to the white fabric. Have a great weekend! - Vanessa

Responding to the comment made on the Calendar Quilt blog: Having just read a weeks worth of your blog, loosing your mind seems like a historical fact. Your humor as well as your talent is very apparent. And with both of us living in the South, we have both been suffering with COLD. I am ready for real southern weather!!

Shelly I like the block you chose. At first I didn't know what it was, but seeing the pic helps.
