    this version of the swap is closing. MadeinMaine will start a new one. please watch for the announcement.

    those already participating in this old version willl be carried over to the new one.

    let the fun begin and continue!
    **********************


    I am shamlessly stealing this idea from another website... But I thought with all the hubabaloo going on with the upcoming holidays, it may be nice to take a break, make a (relaxing!) 12.5 inch block that may be out of our normal realm of construction, and get some fun mail in return.

    For each month, you will make one block for an assigned partner who will make you one in return. The exact details/rules are listed below.
    Everyone is busy. This is intended to be a fun break from all the projects we are working on.


    1. You will receive a swap pal name and address along with the color scheme or theme of their quilt.

    2. You will have 1 month to make one blocks for that person and send it to them. The blocks must be 12 1/2" x 12 1/2". You can make them in a traditional fashion, paint them, sew things to them, embroider them, stencil them, or anything else you like. It can be plain or simple, just make sure to follow your swap pals specifications so their project can be unified.

    3. Your name will be assigned to someone else who will then do the same for you.

    4. At the end of the month all the names will be reassigned and at this time new members will be added or current members can have their names taken off the list.

    5. To join, PM MADEINMAINE your real name, address, EMAIL, and a "theme" you would like your block to be. For instance, a "blue nine patch block," "green and brown," or "cats."

    Gosh, every time I read your name it transfers to "blueberrytones" or "blue baritones" - my brain somtimes frightens me. lol

    What a fabulous idea. Even I can do a block in a month. I'd like to be in on this one. Just one clarification, please:

    My choice would be "fall leaves" - so for the duration of the swap, that could (would/should) be my motto?

    That's coz I'm feeling better. Montezuma has taken his revenge elsewhere (as in Elvis has left the building).

    Hi, I am a little dense today I think Mad's montezuma landed here :roll: :roll: So, let me see if I understand this.
    Say I choose Teals and Browns, then my square will be made in those colors. Is this going to be a on going swap, with a new partner every month? So that we end up with enough 12.5 squares for a quilt in our choices?
    Sorry for the confusion. Like over the coming months, whoever gets you will make you A star in your chosen colors, do I understand this? the stars can be from different patterns, will still be in your chosen colors?

    This sounds like fun!
    My understanding - we are given someones name and what kind of block they would like you to make. Your name in turn is given to someone to make a block of your choosing. What a great idea!!!
    I will think about what I would like to do and check back in with a PM!
    I am so happy you 'stole' the idea from another board! The bonus is that sending one block is like sending a letter! Minimal cost!
    Be back soon!
