    for your cyber-safety, please don't post personal information such as address, eddresses, and phone numbers.
    request and share personal info by pm, please.****

    Be sure to include an addressed return envelope and postage..

    Thanks

    Everyone is Welcome. no limit to number of participants..

    12 1/2 inch UNFINISHED blue and white stars,, any stars, any blue and white fabrics

    MAKE SURE YOUR BLOCKS MEASURE 12 1/2 INCHES BEFORE YOU MAIL THEM TO ME.. blocks smaller than 12 1/2 inches will be returned..

    Sorry to be so strict on this point... but it is necessary to be fair

    here is how it works...

    You make 12 blocks, all alike and send them to me.. the orgainizer, along with a self addressed, stamped envelope for return postage... what ever 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.

    I will send you back one of your blocks and one each of 11 different blocks..

    Please mark EACH ONE of your blocks with a little slip of paper pinned to or a sticky label with your message board id and if you want to, your real name. It is nice to know who made the blocks in your quilt.

    Mail your blocks to me by March 1, 2009

    I will mail them back out by March 15, 2009

    I'd like to join the 2nd one...12.5" blue and white stars. Do we make the ones we send to you all the same? or do they need to be different? Sounds like fun.

    I'm not exactly sure when your Civil War was, but the blue and white stars is tempting... 4 months would be roughly the end of Jan? Sounds do-able. Can this be international too?

    yes, international is welcome
    deadline will be 1st of March, 2009. I need to receive it by this date, so if you are mailing international, please mail it early enough to get here by then.

    Sounds good - count me in!

    And I've just looked it up - the American Civil war was 1861-1865, so started 210 years after the English one ended. Not sure what that would mean for fabric though. I think I understand stars more.

    OK, sign me up for the stars too! I just recently finished a Bear Paw and although I love the CW repros, I havent done a star quilt for about 8 years. Sounds like fun!!!!

    This is new to me, so a simple question for clarification: Do you mean the blocks are to be the picture of a star or stars? (At least I understand the blue and white fabric rule.) I'm just a little unsure about what is meant. Thank you!

    A pieced star block...

    like an ohio star for example in blue and white fabrics..

    there are many different piece star blocks to choose from. It is your choice which on you want to do.

    When you get them back you will have one of 12 different stars to make into a sampler type quilt

    Does that help? let me know if not.

    Thank you, Judy - that does explain it. Count me in! And let me know what I do now, other than making 12 identical blocks.

    Hey Judy,

    I'm looking thru Quilter's Cache and my own books here. When you run swaps, do you ask us to publically choose a block so that others know that one's already taken? Or doesn't it matter if we get a duplicate because it will be a sampler-type quilt anyway? :)

    I say just make what you want. If a design is duplicated it most likely will look different due to fabric choices..

    If we get more that 12, I will try to put similar blocks in different sets

    Can it be two or more different blues with the white, or should it just be one blue fabric with white? Several of the patterns I have need a couple of different shades.

    Please count me in too, if there is enough space left. This sounds like such a fun swap. Sara

    Ooo, count me in too!
    This sounds like fun, and it gives me enough time to get them done since I'm working 2 jobs at around 60hrs per week :hunf:
    So, the way I see it, any 12 inch block from a book or a site will really be 12" finished, right, so 12.5 unfinished...right?
