Super Scrappy Swap Block - What Kind of Block?

I changed the poll because we had the most requests for a 12" block, but now we need to think about how to divide up the groups. The concensus seems to be that making 12 blocks is good for most people. We should have enough participants to divide into two groups. The poll on the left is for your opinions on what to make for those groups. I'm hoping to make the majority pleased with what we do, so if you have another idea, please add it in the comments! If I missed getting you on the list, contact me again. I'm trying to keep up, but it's easy to miss a comment on the forums, so I don't want to leave anyone out!

Here are some examples of string blocks:

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_3&listing_id=16310180

These are fun and easy to make, and the great thing is that you can put anything and they look fabulous. In fact, the less matchy you make them the better they come out!

Traditional blocks would be whatever the swapper wants to make, as long as it's the right size. I would suppose that a swapper could request a certain type of block for her quilt, but I'll leave that up to you to decide, swappers!

The finished blocks would be sent to me before the deadline, then I will trade them out and send them back. We have not set the deadline yet, we'll discuss that next!

I'm sorry, I haven't been able to keep up with the forums. I am confused about 2 blocks strip/traditional & different sizes.
