You may ( ah may MAy hahah !) be aware that QUILT.con is in Feb 2013 and in Texas .. it;s unlikely that many from the UK will be packing their machines and tootling off for 3 days of fun .
You may be aware through the MQG website they are holding a block competition that uses certain colours to make a block that could win a place in a quilt tobe given as the grand prize at the final day of Quilt con.
We have at Norwich MQG a pack of 1/2 yard cuts of the solids ( read plain) fabrics which are the colours requested by the MQG committee.
You are welcome to have either samples or purchase a selection of the colours max of 1/8 cut .Sadly I have to charge as I have personally purchased and paid for shiping from the USA .
You could choose to make a wonky log cabin or something completely off the wal land you can post yr pics either here or on .....
Good luck and happy sewing.
