Here's a thought I had about using 2" Half-Square Triangle Papers. As Clara mentioned, they are in increments of 28 per sheet and there are 25 sheets per package. I ordered yesterday from LaundryBasketQuilts.com and they were $10.95 a package, which included shipping.
It wouldn't be a requirement, but it would be nice if most of us could use these. If you didn't want to order an entire package, I thought I could order a supply from Edyta, then each participant could send me a stamped-self envelope and I could mail the papers back to you. I'll have to see how many fit in a standard envelope without getting to creased. They come to about 44 cents for each sheet.
When I did this with my guild, we each made 84. I believe it is important that we all make the same amount so it doesn't make the distribution too confusing.
Clara has generously offered to help since she lives somewhat close-by in Austin and her parents don't live too far from me.
Think about how many you'd each like to make and whether and if you'd be interested in my ordering the papers.
2 sheets = 56
3 sheets = 84
4 sheets = 112
5 sheets = 140
Do we all agree to use both batiks and prints?
What would be a good time from to get them turned in? One sheet sews up very quickly, but considering mail service, we'd need to factor that into our decision, especially if coming from outside the U.S. We could set an April or May deadline for mailing the triangles to me and then Clara and I could distribute and send back to you. Depending on how many we have, the distribution may take a while.
We would also do as Clara suggested as far as returning the triangles to you. When you send me the triangles, you'll include a stamped self addressed 'envelope' with enough postage to return it to you. We may have to resort to a little larger envelope, probably a 5 x 7 manilla type, that will hold up well during delivery. We sure don't want to take a chance on our fabric being damaged.

I'm am really looking forward to this. And members outside the U.S., please, please consider joining our exchange.
If you have other suggestions, please let me know.
