    Cool 2014 Patriotic-Red, White & Blue Block Swap-Sign ups close May 10th

    Let's celebrate freedom! What speaks patriotic to you? Red, white and blue, Old Glory, fourth of July, stars, fireworks, and such.

    This swap is for 12.5" unfinished (12" finished) blocks, done in Reds, White & Blues.
    For white backgrounds: do use white, or white-on-whites, or white prints. (Not cream or ecru, etc.)

    Blocks to be in sets of 4. Limit of 5 sets per swapper. Total of 20 blocks. All blocks will be swapped out, so make an extra of each design if you so choose.

    Each set of 4 should be a same design, but the fabrics may vary. Only 1 set of any design. This gives you opportunity to try out a few of those block patterns that you have been meaning to do!

    This swap is open to all skill levels.

    Be sure to use quality PRE-WASHED 100% cotton fabrics. (NO flannel, homespun, poly-blends, or see-through)

    Blocks can be made using traditional piecing, paper piecing, embroidered, appliqued, or combinations thereof.
    (If using applique, all pieces must be sewn down in some manner. Please do not use mono-filament thread.)

    Please check to make sure your blocks are 12.5" square. Not 12 3/8", etc. Please also check for any holes or tears, or inadequate seam allowances. Tidy up the back of block as well.

    Put a small label on each block, including your real name and board name.

    For Mailing: please put blocks in a large ziploc baggie along with your name and address on/in the bag. This will help protect your blocks in case your package gets damaged.
    Include a USPS money order or cash for $6.00 to cover return postage to you. Blocks will be sent in padded flat rate envelopes, with Delivery Confirmation. I get these envelopes free from usps.com.
    If proper postage is not sent, your package will wait until adequate funds are received. Please do not send your own envelopes.

    Sign ups are open until May 10th, 2014. Blocks need to be TO ME by May 22nd, 2014.

    Please send me a PM to sign up, so I don't miss you. If you know how many sets you will be sending in, that would be nice to know too!

    Basic swap rules may be found here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    Some block ideas may be found at: www.quilterscache.com or many other internet sites. Please ask if you need help.

    Come on and join us in the fun!
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    Wish I had the time to join, relocating the company to larger space & all the equipment/furniture/paint/flooring/ceilings, etc. need to determine & juggling accounting & marketing simultaneously, in a large swap off QB that I had already cut before things got so hectic at work. Hope to be free in June for some fun quilting! Y'all have a great swap. Miss you already!

    May I use red, white, and blue solid fabrics-- or must I use a print also in the block? When I use a print, may I use one that is not specifically designed patriotic, for example, a red and white polka dot-- or must it be patriotic?

    You may use solids, or solids and prints, and polka dots too.
