Whose Ready for some Batik Fun??? Are you ready to make a beautiful Batik Sampler?
Before joining, please read Rules for Swaps and Similar Activities, which you will find at the top of the list of swaps.
12-1/2 inches UNFINISHED Batik Sampler Blocks
Please use only 100% cotton batiks, pre-washed (required) and before mailing your blocks, please square and measure them to be sure they measure 12-1/2 inches square. Please watch any points to make sure they have a ¼” seam allowance.
You make 12 blocks, all in the same pattern and fabrics. If you want to make multiple sets, just make sure you have 12 blocks of each pattern, and use a different pattern and fabrics from each set of 12. You will receive back as many as you send.
- ANY 12" finished block (12.5" at time of mailing cause the 1/2" is your seam allowances) block pattern will work!
- You make a set of 12 blocks out of the SAME pattern, but you can use ANY Batik fabrics to make your blocks.
Send in all 12 of your blocks, and I will send you back one of your blocks and one each of 11 different blocks.
This swap is open to all experience levels.
Please check blocks before sending to ensure the following:
*Use 100% pre-washed cotton fabrics.
*Seam allowances should be 1/4". Blocks to be constructed to survive machine washing and drying.
*Measure carefully to ensure blocks are a correct size.
*All applique blocks MUST have all pieces sewn down in some manner, and survive machine washing/drying.
Please understand that I will have no choice but to return blocks that are not a right size, or not constructed to survive machine washing and drying, etc.
By the mailing deadline, send the blocks in a gallon size ziplock baggie to me along with $5.30 in postage stamps for Priority Mail, or if you want Delivery Confirmation on your Priority Mail package please send $6.05 in stamps. Please be sure to include adequate postage. Include with your blocks in the baggie, a slip of paper with your name and exact mailing address written neatly to mail your blocks back home.
Please mark each one of your blocks with a slip of paper pinned to each block, or alternatively a sticky label, including your screen name. Your real name and/or location are optional. Please do not package the individual blocks in baggies or any other wrapping.
Sign-up closes May 30, 2012, but if necessary due to high enrollment, it may close earlier.
The mailing deadline to have the blocks to me is June 15, 2012.
I will mail the blocks back out approximately July 01, 2012.
To be added to this swap once you have your blocks done, please send a private message to PinkLotus with your screen name, real name, mailing address, and how many sets you will be sending.
Let’s discuss, share pictures, and above all else have some FUN!!! :thumbup:
