IMPORTANT Reminders

I've got three  quick (but IMPORTANT) notes.

  1. I still don't know WHO made and posted (via email) these blocks. Even though you are donating them and won't be in the drawing, I HAVE to know who you are so that you can receive the sneak peek email (with February block info) AND the mailing information so you'll know where to send them.  Remember, when you post via email, you MUST include some indication of who you are IN THE MESSAGE.
  2. When you PRINT the templates (originals or the already enlarged ones) be SURE that you have NOT selected the option to "FIT TO PAGE" ... or your blocks will have TOO SMALL arches in the wrong place and won't work well in a quilt with the rest.
  3. The FABRIC GUIDELINES say that the large square of fabric must be BRIGHT/BOLD.  It doesn't say dark.  I know that photos sometimes don't convey true colors, so I must rely on your HONESTY about making blocks that follow the color guidelines.  After reading Béa's blog (in French) where she used the French word vif, I thought of another good word to describe what we want:  VIVID.

    If your large square of fabric isn't really BRIGHT, BOLD, VIVID, then we should take it OFF THE LIST. Let me know if I need to adjust your number of blocks on the list.  Whether your blocks are in the drawing or "donated" to the pot of extras, They MUST follow the guidelines.
I really don't want to be the Quilt Policeman.  It's really not in my nature and the time it would take would push me past the limit of time I am willing to spend.  PLEASE DON'T MAKE IT NECESSARY FOR ME TO DO SO.  I want the winners to receive a set of blocks that will play together nicely.  And if you win the blocks (this month or any month), I'll bet you'd like that, too.

PLEASE FOLLOW THE RULES. Please do not put me in the position of having to ask you to leave the group because you can't follow the rules.  I've never done that and I do NOT want to start now.
