There has been some interest in doing a Dear Jane Block Swap before the big Dear Jane Sew Along in Jan/2010.
so here's the guidelines for the Dear Jane Christmas Block Swap
the Theme is Christmas so the colors are RED, GREEN, GOLD, and OFF WHITE/CREAM (any neutral white except true bright white).
this can be solid, tone on tone, blenders, or pattern fabrics - just go for that christmas kinda feel.
if you do not have access to the book or software check with your library to see if they have a copy.
if not, please let me know which block you would like to do and i'll find you directions on how to make it (either from a website or i will prepare the directions for you).
Please post here which block you will be making so i can keep a running list for the group.
i've attached a word document of all the beginner and intermediate blocks in the Dear Jane Quilt - you can certainly choose an advance block if you wish but i wanted the more beginner and intermediate people on the forum to be able to be a part of this project.
the UNFINISHED size is 5.0 inches
You'll make 18 blocks, all alike and send them to me along with a self addressed, stamped envelope for return postage... what ever 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. When you are ready to send them to me, please pm me and I'll give you my address.
I will send you back one of your blocks and one each of 17 different blocks.
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.
If you want to make multiple sets, just make sure you have 18 blocks of each pattern. You will receive back as many as you send.
Mail your blocks to me by Novermber 6, 2009.
I will mail them back out by November 15, 2009 or as close to that as possible.
