Springtime speaks of new beginnings~flowers emerging from the ground, baby animals everywhere!, an Easter sunrise, new buds on the trees......
Swap blocks will be in sets of 6. All 6 blocks will be swapped, so make an extra for yourself, if desired.
Limit of 4 sets (24 blocks) per swapper.
Blocks can be any size divisible by 3", plus seam allowances. Smallest is 3.5"x3.5".
Limit of 1 set of 3.5" blocks to keep things fair.
Plain fabrics (just cut) will not count toward your block sets. They are a nice extra, if you wish to share.
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.
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.
Your blocks should be mailed to me in a ziploc baggie inside an envelope. Please make sure you put a label on each individual block with your real name and your board name.
You need to include postage stamps only (or cash) for a Flat Rate Priority envelope for me to send your return blocks back to you. This makes my part much easier! Please do not send any pre-printed labels-the post office doesn't like them, as they are dated.
Please send me a PM with any questions or concerns.
Sign up deadline is Feb. 15, 2012. Please sign up when your blocks are ready to mail. "Mail to me" deadline is Feb. 28, 2012. This means blocks in my hands!
I will swap and mail return blocks by Mar. 10, 2012.
All general rules for swaps are here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm.
