This is a swap for anything you might see on a farm! That means things like farm houses, barns, chickens, eggs, pigs, cows, sheep, horses, ducks, gardens, scarecrows, tractors, farmers, goats, canning jars, ladies in aprons doing chores, sunflowers....just to name a few!
The sign-up will be for sets of 6 alike blocks. The limit will be 4 sets per swapper. The swap is now open to sign up for all levels of quilters.
***You WILL NOT receive one of your blocks back for this swap***
*Blocks can be any size divisible by 3" (plus 1/4" seam allowances). Ex. 3.5"x3.5", 3.5"x6.5", 6.5"x6.5", 6.5"x9.5",9.5"x9.5", 9.5"x12.5", 12.5"x12.5", etc.
**limit of 1 set of 3.5" per swapper**
***PLEASE use ...100 percent good quality cotton fabrics... that are prewashed. No muslin or blends please, these will be returned.
Please use nice fabric that you would love to have in your quilts.
I understand that if you are using pre-cuts (jellyrolls, charm packs) may be impossible. Just write a small note and clip to each block to advise the reciever (s). Many fabrics shrink or dyes run... so please do this first step to make our projects something nice after washing and that we can be proud of.
*All applique pieces MUST be sewn down in some manner. Please, no monofilament thread.
*Embellishments: If they are bulky, please put them in a baggie attached to block if needed.
*Plain pieces of fabric are not considered a block and they will be returned to you*
*Place the block sets of 6 into a large plastic baggie marked with your board name. On each block, please attach a slip of paper with your board name on it. We like to know who made it.
*Return Mailing: You need to include $5.30 in stamps or cash for me to mail your return blocks to you. I will supply a PADDED flat rate envelope.
Delivery Confirmation is an extra .75 and I highly recommended it!
*Sign up deadline is September 5, 2012. Blocks need to be "to me" by Sept. 19, 2012. Blocks will be swapped and mailed out by October 1, 2012.
*Please PM me to sign up, and give me # of sets if possible. This is going to be a fun swap! Hope you can join the fun!
Should you have any questions or problems please contact me by pm.
