Sign-ups are open until March 30th or we have a maximum of 25 swappers, whichever comes first. 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 be making 8 ˝” unfinished D4P 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), please make all blocks in each set of 6 with the same theme-of-the-month fabric and use a different theme-of-the-month fabric in each set.
March’s theme is PATRIOTIC. Please use ONE RED Patriotic print with solid white or ONE BLUE Patriotic print with solid white. Please send the kind of blocks you’d like to receive – squared up, pressed and trimmed.
In case you’ve never made a D4P quilt block, here are the instructions:

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

After I have received all of your information I will add you to the list of swappers and PM you 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 Patriotic D4P quilt blocks will be due by APRIL 30TH.
** Please label your quilt blocks**
Mailing: please put blocks in a 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 ˝” x 12 ˝”), 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!
