    JUNE – CHOCOLATE COVERED CHERRIES Argyle style Disappearing 4 Patch swap

    Sign-ups are open until I have a maximum of 25 swappers. Each month is loads of fun with a wide variety of fabrics in each swap. Sew much fun! Here’s how it works: we will be making 8 ½” unfinished D4P Block quilt blocks. One set equals 6 D4P blocks. You may make as many as 6 sets of 6 blocks each which would be 36 D4P blocks. Wow! That’s a lot of quilt blocks. Imagine how cool that quilt will be??? I know! Right??? Please us a variety of pinks and chocolate browns. You could make 36 blocks each with different fabrics! Wow!!! The more variety the better. That would make a wonderful swap, wouldn’t it?

    June’s theme is CHOCOLATE COVERED CHERRIES (aka pinks and browns). In case you’ve never made a D4P quilt block, here are the instructions:

    http://sewwonderful.blogspot.com/201...o-9-patch.html

    The Argyle style D4P has a twist: Make a 4 patch with a pink and a light neutral fabric and cut according to the instructions. Next, make a 4 patch with a chocolate brown and a light neutral fabric and cut according to the instructions. ***DO NOT SEW TOGETHER YET*** Swap the pink/neutral strips with the brown/neutral strips between the two blocks. Please see pictures below. Sew together with a scant ¼” seam. Voila! You now have two Argyle D4P blocks!

    Please use 100% cotton, quilt quality fabric to make your quilt blocks. Please pay attention to the back of your quilt blocks; pressing, snipping extra threads, etc. Be sure your quilt blocks are squared up, trimmed and even.

    Please PM me 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 JULY 30TH.
    ** Please label your quilt blocks**

    Mailing: please put all blocks in one large plastic 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 ½” x 12 ½”), buy $5.95 in POSTAGE, put postage 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!

    Hi! I was looking forward to participating in this swap for awhile-- glad it's finally here at last! So... the blocks are due on May 30th, I read, but what's the correct date? :-) I'm sending my pm to sign up! Thanks for hosting, Jane!

    So sorry! Due date is JULY 30th. That's what I get for using an older template. I'll ask for that to be changed. Glad you caught that!

    Pink and chocolate brown! My DD favorite colors. I have never participated in an exchange and feel my skills are good enough to exchange with someone else.

    Wanted you to know how great this sounds and the colors did attract my attention. Have fun!

    Linda -

    I hope you decide to change your mind. Consider doing a practice block and have someone critique it ((constructive suggestions only)). I bet you're better than you think you are! Worth a shot, right???

    Here's the picture that started it all! Even though it's in different colors, you get the idea. Also, setting the blocks on point really show off the Argyle style, don't you think?

    Enjoy!
