CHICKEN BLOCK SWAP – Open to US, Canada and the rest of the world!
Show us your creative edge by sending out 12 1/2 inch UNFINISHED CHICKEN blocks. These can be appliqué, pieced, embellished, or whatever you want. Fabric should be washed, dried and ironed. Please send what you want to receive. Please consider prewashing a social obligation and courtesy to any who may have allergies and or live in smoke and animal free environments. Please use 100% cotton.
I have been told to set a specific number of blocks so there are no problems. So, this will be a 6 or 12 block exchange, and send them to me along with a self addressed, stamped envelope for return postage... whatever it cost to send it to me, it will cost to return your blocks to you...so be sure to put enough postage on your envelope. If you are out of the country, I will be happy to coordinate US mailing rates – you can send the funds to cover the postage and I’ll take care of it at the post office. When you are ready to send them to me, please pm me and I'll give you my address.
I will send you back an assortment of chicken blocks and you will get the same quantity you sent.
Please mark EACH ONE of your blocks with a little slip of paper pinned to it or a sticky label with your message board id and if you want to, your real name. It is nice to know who made the blocks in your quilt.
Mail your blocks to me by October 15, 2009.
I will mail them back out by October 31, 2009 or as close to that as possible.
If you want to post what block you are making, we can try to keep them all as different as possible. Let's keep each other motivated to make the deadline and have lots of participants!
Bok-BAAAAAwk, let’s have fun!!
