APRIL – CIVIL WAR REPRODUCTION DISAPPEARING FOUR PATCH swap - Sign-ups are open until I have a maximum of 25 swappers. Each month is loads of fun with a wide variety of fabrics in each swap. Sew much fun!
Welcome to our monthly D4P swap. Here’s how it works: we will all be making 8 ˝” unfinished D4P Block quilt blocks in a different theme each month. One set equals 6 D4P blocks. You may make as many as 6 sets of 6 blocks each which would be 36 D4P blocks. Wow! That’s a lot of quilt blocks. Imagine how cool that quilt will be??? I know! Right??? Please consider making each block using a different fabric(s). Use a variety of fabrics as long as you stay within the theme for the month. You could make 36 blocks each with different fabrics! Wow!!! The more variety the better. That would make a great swap, wouldn't it?
April’s theme is CIVIL WAR prints. Please use one Civil War reproduction print with one light shirting print/fabric for each block.
In case you've never made a D4P quilt block, here are the instructions:
Please use 100% cotton, quilt quality fabric to make your quilt blocks. Please pay attention to the back of your quilt blocks; pressing, snipping extra threads, etc. Be sure your quilt blocks are squared up, trimmed and even.
Please PM me to sign up. Please provide:
· QB screen name
· Real name
· Number of sets you are making/sending
· Email address
After I have received all of your information I will add you to the list of swappers and PM you a message with mailing information. BE SURE to include the USPS envelope WITH POSTAGE, filled out with your mailing information, in your package to me. Set(s) of D4P quilt blocks will be due by MAY 30TH. ** Please label your quilt blocks**
Mailing: please put blocks in a large plastic baggie along with your name and address on/in the bag. This will help protect your blocks in case your package is damaged. Please use a USPS Priority Mail® Padded Flat Rate Envelope (9 ˝” x 12 ˝”), buy $5.95 in POSTAGE, put postage on your return envelope and fill out your name/address etc. This will be your return envelope so be sure to put this in your package as well!
