    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.

    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.

    Irish Mom, I hope you will be able to join us. But, the health of your eyes is very important. I will keep you in my prayers that all will go well and that you have a speedy recovery.

    I hope to get in again. Will see how therapy goes for the next month and maybe I can get in my sewing room. I know the blocks I want to make and they shouldn't take long. Especially since I retired.

    Judith I would like to join. I'll send you a pm of my info. Quick question on the RWB theme. Does it have to be pure white or can it be a white on white, cream, tan or beige color?

    Welcome to the Swap,

    White on White, cream, tan or beige or plain white are all perfect to use.

    Do we need to prewash the fabrics before making the blocks?

    It's up to you. Whatever you normally do is fine. (I'm personally not a pre-washer.)

    Welcome back SuziSew, Your blocks last year were wonderful. I made sure that just about everybody had a quilt block in the quilt I made for my son-in-law.

    My first set of blocks are all finished and labeled and ready to go. I think the block is called Hole In The Barn Door.



    I just loved this basket of flags in the print I purchased last year. On this same fabric is also a patriotic horse and a US Map. (One of my swappers last year used those two fussy cuts in their blocks. But, the basket of flags just really caught my eye.

    See you soon with a close up of the next set. (I am making 5 sets this year.)

    Sorry I won't be able to join in this year. Too many irons in the fire. But I did just get out the top that I made from my block swaps. Am looking for a suitable back. I may have to piece something together. Best wishes to all the participants. Marcia Battle Axe

    Thanks Marcia. I totally understand. Have fun, I hope you get to all you want to finish this year. I'd love to see your top when it's all finished.
