Welcome all to our MONTHLY DISAPPEARING FOUR PATCH swap. I hope everyone has fun and enjoys themselves so everyone will be happy with their blocks.
Here’s how it works: we will all 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 or you may make each block using a different theme fabric. If you are making more than one set (up to 6 sets), please use a different theme fabric in each set.
In case you’ve never made a D4P quilt block, here are the instructions:
The theme for DECEMBER is black/white and white/black prints and bright colors that 'read' as a solid. Please use any combination of red, yellow, blue, orange, green or purple along with the b/w and w/b prints to make your four patch blocks. Please see the picture.
Please use 100% cotton, quilt quality fabric to make your quilt blocks. Please PM me by the 20th of each month 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 package, filled out with your mailing information, in your package to me. Set(s) of D4P quilt blocks will be due by the 20th of the next month.
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 purchase a USPS Priority Mail® Padded Flat Rate Envelope (9 ˝” x 12 ˝”) for $5.95 and fill out your name/address etc. This will be your return envelope so be sure to put this in your package as well!
