    February Valentines Disappearing 4 Patch Swap - sign up til 1/30/14

    FEBRUARY DISAPPEARING FOUR PATCH swap - Sign-ups open until January 30th. 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 9 ˝” ((different size this month!!)) 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 thirty-six (36) D4P blocks. Wow! That’s a lot of quilt blocks. Imagine how cool that quilt will be??? I know! Right??? If you are making one set, you may either make all the blocks using the same theme fabric(s) or you may make each block using a different theme-for-the-month fabric(s). If you are making more than one set (up to 6 sets), use a different theme-of-the-month fabric in each set.

    February’s theme is VALENTINES. Please use ONE VALENTINES fabric then choose ONE OF THE FOLLOWING BACKGROUND fabrics per block: Red, Pink, Black or White to make each quilt block. The extra special surprise this month is a modified pattern – the D4P with a TWIST.

    In case you've never made a D4P with a TWIST quilt block, here are the instructions:

    http://round22.blogspot.com/2012/07/...ith-twist.html

    Please use 100% cotton, quilt quality fabric to make your quilt blocks. Please PM me by JANUARY 30th to sign up. Please provide:

    · QB screen name
    · Real name
    · Number of sets you are making/sending
    · Email address
    · Phone number

    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 MARCH 30th. ** Please label your quilt blocks**

    Mailing: please put blocks in a large ziploc 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 and put 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!

    What an interesting "twist" for this block. Going to have to think on this one for a bit.

    I am confused. In the Jan Batik swap you have the deadline for sign up Jan 30 with a due date Feb 28
    Also the same dates for the Feb swap.

    At the start of the swaps the dates were sign up by the 20th of the month and due the next month by the 20th.

    The Black & White D4P is due by Jan correct

    I guess I will think "twisted" and try this block. It does turn out very nice. Put me down for 6 sets. I know I have plenty of Valentine fabric. You know, like a whole dresser drawer full. Let the fun begin, later this month!!

    I want to make sure I understand what you are saying here. If I have it correct, 2 squares are Valentines fabric and the other 2 are either Red, Pink, Black or White. Or are you saying 1 square valentines, and the other 3 one of the red, pink black or white.

    Thanks for clearing it up for me.
