I have an idea for a block swap. I was thinking of 100% cotton solids, with no white, beige, or cream. You would pick your block. It can be traditional, applique, or something you come up with. If you want to have embroidery, it must be hand done, no machine embroidery.

So let me know if this is something you would be interested in doing.

Mary and Sonya, yes you can use black. I was thinking about doing black background, but didn't want to limit the possibility of color.

Teresa, You could make hole in the barn door using navy background and a bright yellow and orange. I'll sew up a few blocks tomorrow. I was at Quiltcon today and got some ideas.

Hmmmm, I have never used all solids or solid black. So this could be interesting. The LOTTO has been nice for me to try new techniques, so maybe this could be also.

Will look for your examples and size of block. ;)

Lori - Are you thinking solid solid or blender solids

I have always wanted to make a quilt with a black background.

Teresa, solids only. There are a lot different solid fabrics out. My favorite is American Made Brand. I like Mona too, but it's a little heavier. Lori

So you're thinking ALL solids?

IF you do this, I'm already thinking about doing Jacob's ladder, just need to know if it's all solids, or just solid background.

Hmmmm, If my sewing room gets put together I just may consider this.

but only if no one remembers that I was going to sit out swaps for a while. I will know more by the end of the weekend.

So, I'm a little confused. Is this a swap or are we just talking about it? 'cuz if it is, I need to buy a fabrics. I have absolutely no solids. Or at least none that I like.

Maryz, I wanted to see if there was an interest before I posted a swap. I'll post the swap in a new link on Monday.

LORI - wonderful! When the swap goes up, my name goes down! I love the black background with solids. It will show off my cat's hair to purrfection!

Maryz- LOL that is hilarious and so true!

I like the idea of black background as well. It really shows off the colors.
