Batik Block Swap 12.5!
The blocks from the last batik block were inspiring so now it's time to make them in 12.5".
Blocks are to be made in sets of 6, one of which will be returned to you
. No duplicate sets without prior permission, and each set of 6 must be of the same design
, but the fabrics may vary.
You may make up to 6 sets of 6 blocks each for a total of 36 blocks.
Block sizes should be 12.5 inches, so if you make 36 blocks, your top would be at least 72x72.
All skill levels are invited to participate. Be sure to use quality 100% cotton fabrics & appropriate threads that will withstand repeated washings, and your fabrics MUST be pre-washed. ** If you’re using jellyrolls that won’t be pre-washed, please make a note of that on your block labels.
All block styles are encouraged and should be either traditional pieced or paper pieced.
Please do your best work and make something that you would want to have, because you WILL be getting back a block of your own, so use colors and themes that you are proud to send in and will be happy to get back.
Make sure all blocks are labeled with your user name and real name if you wish, and that they have no holes or tears or have too small of seam allowances that would make them unfit to swap, and that they are the size they are supposed to be, in other words, 12 1/2 inches means 12 1/2 inches, not 12 3/8 inches, etc.
Signups will be opened until May 31, 2013, blocks need to be completed and to me by July 31, 2013. Blocks received after that date (without approval) will be returned to you unswapped. I will swap them out and get them back in the mail to you by the following week.

Mailing and postage:
Please put your blocks in a gallon size ziploc bag for shipping and put your name and address on the bag. This will protect your hard work in case the mailman leaves a package outside and will get your items back to you in the event of a mailer malfunction.
Please also include a self-addressed label along with a $6 money order or well concealed cash to cover return postage to you (I use the $5.95 padded priority mailers). These will be sent priority mail with delivery confirmation. If proper postage is not sent, your package will wait until it is received.
In addition to the above, please follow all the basic rules, found here. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm
