Default 2019 Red/White/Blue/Patriotic Block Swap

This is a *Red*White*Blue/Patriotic Block Swap with Blocks sets of 4, Up to Five sets per swapper, 20 Blocks maximum.

Sign ups begin now, Now, February 21,2019.
The signups are open till March 21, 2019.
The Deadline to have them to me (in my hands) is April 21st, 2019.
I will swap them out almost upon arrival. Between April 23 rd. to April 30,2019.
If I do not have your blocks in my hands by the deadline, I will swap out without you.
QB General Swap Rules: http://www.quiltingboard.com/member-...-a-t20154.html\

**Please Keep in mind that swap blocks may contain allergens. Please make the decision to either join us or not join us based on what is best for you.**

The Swap is for sets of (4) Blocks. The limit is 5 sets per swapper. 20 Blocks maximum.
No Squares of fabric count as a set. Also, DP9's must be sewn together to be considered a block. 1/4 DP9 blocks are not counted as a set.

I will trade out all the blocks I receive. Don't forget to make a set for yourself.

****Note**** Blocks sizes are 12.5 only this time. If you want to make 6.5, then you need to make 4 to equal one block. If you want to make a 9.5 block that's fine also. It must be bordered to make it 12.5. (unfinished sizes)

This will make a nice size picnic, lap or donation, QOV (Quilt of Valor) quilt. Or, you could just add borders to make it large enough to make it bed size.

The sets should be the same image/block. But, different fabrics (scrappy) can be used. 100 % cotton fabric must be used.

Any background Fabric can be used as long as it's appropriate for the theme.
Applique blocks must be sewn down!
Embroidery blocks whether hand sewn or machine sewn are fine also.

Mail your blocks to me (or however you see fit) in a priority flat rate envelope using stamps only on the return envelope. (Metered mail expires.) I must return mail it to you by priority mail in order to have a tracking number. Give your package time to get to me please. Make sure to address your return envelope back to yourself. Don't forget to use the proper postage. (Thank you.) Pm me for my address when your ready to send. You can mail whenever your ready. Note, Please do not tape over your stamps, it voids your postage.

Place your finished sets in one Large baggie. Make sure your board name is on each block. If your new to the board or just new to swapping, just ask and you will get lots of great suggestions on how to mark your blocks. (I mark mine with the small oblong post it's that I pick up at the Dollar Store and sew the on with my machine.)

Should anything come up and you need to withdraw from the swap, just let me know. Life happens sometimes.

So, hope yall will join me again for another great swap here on the Quiltboard.

This is the quilt I made out of the 2018 Swap Exchange blocks.



It is out for delivery today. So, maybe my daughter and Son-In-Law will have it by tomorrow. Hopefully, I can share a photo soon of it with my Son-In-Law.

And, I have been working on Demo blocks and hope to interest you in joining me in the swap. Plus, I would love to make another quilt to donate to a friend of Elson's this year.

I would love to join. Do I PM my name and address to you? I have been in a previous swap with 9-patch squares and enjoyed it so much that I would love to do this one also. I love RWB quilts. Just let me know please.

Thank you for adding me to the participants list. I am so excited. The only thing I can't do is post pictures of what I am working on but I will have my granddaughter help me post. Yes, I will keep in touch with this swap and anxious to see what the other participants are doing.
