    Cool Fun & Funky Chickens Block Swap - Sign Ups Close Aug. 30, 2012

    Let's hear it for chickens!! Blocks can be regular chickens in normal colors, or a silly chicken in funky fabrics, and anything in between! Use your imagination! Please make blocks that you will be proud to share.

    This swap is open to all experience levels.

    Nitty Gritty:

    *Use good quality 100% cottons that are pre-washed. No muslin, no flannel, no see-throughs, and no poly blends.
    Remove selvages before cutting pieces for your blocks. Blocks need to be constructed to survive machine washing and drying.

    *Blocks can be any size divisible by 3" (plus 1/4" seam allowances). Ex. 3.5"x3.5", 3.5"x6.5", 6.5"x6.5", 6.5"x9.5",9.5"x9.5", 9.5"x12.5", 12.5"x12.5", 12.5"x15.5", etc.

    *Blocks will be in sets of 4. Limit of 6 sets per swapper. (limit of 1 set of 3.5" per swapper)
    All 4 blocks per set will be swapped, so if you'd like one of your own, please make an extra!
    Please make each set a different design, to help keep things interesting!

    *All applique pieces MUST be sewn down in some manner. Please, no monofilament thread.

    *Embellishments: If they are bulky, please put them in a baggie attached to block if needed.

    *Plain pieces of chicken-themed fabrics are great to share with others, as an extra. They will not count towards your block sets. These are fun little fillers! Extras, and not required~

    *Blocks should be mailed to me in a ziploc baggie inside an envelope, with your name and board name on each individual block. Delivery Confirmation is highly recommended.

    *Return Mailing: You need to include $5.30 in stamps or cash for me to mail your return blocks to you. I will supply a PADDED flat rate envelope. They hold more! Delivery Confirmation is extra $, and highly recommended!

    *Sign up deadline is Aug. 30, 2012. Please only sign up when your blocks are done and ready to mail. Blocks need to be "to me" by Sept. 15, 2012. Blocks will be swapped and mailed out by Sept. 30, 2012.

    *Please PM me to sign up, and give me # of sets if possible. I wouldn't want to miss you!

    All general rules for swaps are here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    When you say sets of 4 do you mean in order to participate we must make 4 blocks? Might be a silly question but I nave never entered a quilting board challenge.

    Hi My Time-- yes, the blocks are done in sets. You do need to make at least 1 set to participate. Each block does not have to be the same pattern, but some folks find it easier to do them the same. You can do different fabric choices also.
    If you send me 4 blocks to swap, you will receive 4 blocks from other folks to add to your collection.
