    Winter Dear Jane Block Swap.

    Colors/Theme: Winter themed. Colors are pretty much blue, white, and silver. Prints are perfectly fine to use.
    Fabric: Fabric: 100% cotton but does not need to be LQS. Use the golden rule with selecting your fabric. And of course washed and pressed to avoid shrinkage is a must. As well as carefully squaring your blocks.
    Please post here which block you will be making so I can keep a running list for the group. Iím posting an attachment that shows the difficulty levels of the blocks, try to pick one that best matches your abilities.

    ***To sign up***
    Please PM me and tell me how many sets and of which pattern you plan to submit. Most likely I will not allow duplicates unless we have A LOT of people sign up.

    the UNFINISHED size is 5.0 inches

    You'll make 12 blocks, (all the same pattern) and send them to me along with a self addressed, stamped envelope for return postage... whatever it cost to send it to me, it will cost to return your blocks to you...so be sure to put enough postage on your envelope. When you are ready to send them to me, please pm me and I'll give you my address.

    I will send you back one of your blocks and one each of 11 different blocks. Iím sending you back one of your own because I will use it to match up a set for you.

    Please mark EACH ONE of your blocks with a little slip of paper pinned to it or a sticky label with your ***board name*** and if you want to, your real name. It is nice to know who made the blocks in your quilt.
    If you want to make multiple sets, just make sure you have 12 blocks of each pattern. You will receive back as many as you send.

    Important Dates:
    Sign-ups and block selections end: November 15th.

    Please contact me if you have not completed all the blocks you promised by December 15th.

    Blocks need to be postmarked by: January 2nd ((International swappers may need allow extra time for mailing.))

    I will mail the blocks back to you by January 15th.

    Late Blocks: Will be sent back to you and not included in the swap. Please let me know if you'll be unable to meet the deadline.

    Additional note: You will need to have a copy of Dear Jane, either the book or the software for this swap. This is simply for the patterns. OR the ability to accurately draft the patterns by looking....

    By "silver" - do you mean the metallic print on fabrics

    or do you mean a pale gray fabric

    or either/both?

    It is definitely worth looking at the book before purchasing it.

    The book has line drawings of the blocks - drawn "in the manner of. . "

    Some of the drawings do not appear to match the pictures of the blocks.

    There are NO templates and NO instructions on how to assemble the blocks in the book (unless it has been revised in the last year or so)

    I do not believe that it has been revised in the last year or so. I could be wrong. My copy only has the drawings.

    I would definately have to have cutting instructions. I'm doing the Farmer's Wife on here and someone is doing the rotary cutting directions thank goodness or I wouldn't be able to make it.

    I'm not real fond of templates either.

    There are several blocks that are "easy" - just squares and rectangles - hurry up and claim them.
