The link below is for the Churn Dash block swap. There is a picture tutorial with this. I have posted a pic of my finished 'simple' block. Guidelines are as follows: 100% cotton pre-washed fabric. 12 blocks the same. There are 4 fabrics used in this block. Center piece is your focus fabric - should be of a 'spring' theme. Flowers, butterflies, flower or tree buds, ladybugs, ANYTHING that speak SPRING to you. The frame is two different complimentary colors, the corner blocks , one of the complimentary colors and one accent color. You may add applique', or stitching or whatever you wish. No beads or crystals please. Since these blocks will be used by other quilters, please make sure your blocks are 12.5 x 12.5 UNFINISHED. Oh - that dreaded SCANT 1/4 INCH DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE. You may make as many sets of 12 as you wish. Sign up till Feb 20th, blocks due to me BY March 31. There is plenty of time to sign up and make these blocks. When ready for mailing, please pm me, I will send you my addy. You will need to send in a mailing label, and a $4.95 STAMP, NOT A METERED STAMP. I will return your blocks in a Flat Rate Padded envelope. I can get three sets in one envelope (I am a really good packer!) If you wish to join, please pm me, I will post your joining on the thread. Welcome back to those of you who have swapped with me before! For those of you who need to know the amounts of fabric required for 12 blocks, looking at MY sample, (for better clarification) Center focus fabric (floral) - 3/4 yard is sufficient, you may want to get 1 yard if you are skittish. Fabric #1 (light green) 3/4 yard - may get 1 yard again if you are skittish. Fabric #2 (red accent) 1/2 yard will be plenty. Fabric #3 (pink) 1/2 yard is plenty. All of these amounts are based on 40 inch wide fabric (it does shrink). If there are any problems, PLEASE pm me. Happy new quilting year to all of us!
