    APRIL – CIVIL WAR REPRODUCTION D4P swap

    APRIL – CIVIL WAR REPRODUCTION DISAPPEARING FOUR PATCH swap - Sign-ups are open until I have a maximum of 25 swappers. Each month is loads of fun with a wide variety of fabrics in each swap. Sew much fun!

    Welcome to our monthly D4P swap. Here’s how it works: we will all be making 8 ˝” unfinished D4P Block quilt blocks in a different theme each month. One set equals 6 D4P blocks. You may make as many as 6 sets of 6 blocks each which would be 36 D4P blocks. Wow! That’s a lot of quilt blocks. Imagine how cool that quilt will be??? I know! Right??? Please consider making each block using a different fabric(s). Use a variety of fabrics as long as you stay within the theme for the month. You could make 36 blocks each with different fabrics! Wow!!! The more variety the better. That would make a great swap, wouldn't it?

    April’s theme is CIVIL WAR prints. Please use one Civil War reproduction print with one light shirting print/fabric for each block.

    In case you've never made a D4P quilt block, here are the instructions:

    http://sewwonderful.blogspot.com/201...o-9-patch.html

    Please use 100% cotton, quilt quality fabric to make your quilt blocks. Please pay attention to the back of your quilt blocks; pressing, snipping extra threads, etc. Be sure your quilt blocks are squared up, trimmed and even.

    Please PM me to sign up. Please provide:

    · QB screen name
    · Real name
    · Number of sets you are making/sending
    · Email address

    After I have received all of your information I will add you to the list of swappers and PM you a message with mailing information. BE SURE to include the USPS envelope WITH POSTAGE, filled out with your mailing information, in your package to me. Set(s) of D4P quilt blocks will be due by MAY 30TH. ** Please label your quilt blocks**

    Mailing: please put blocks in a large plastic baggie along with your name and address on/in the bag. This will help protect your blocks in case your package is damaged. Please use a USPS Priority Mail® Padded Flat Rate Envelope (9 ˝” x 12 ˝”), buy $5.95 in POSTAGE, put postage on your return envelope and fill out your name/address etc. This will be your return envelope so be sure to put this in your package as well!

    Basic swap rules may be found here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    Thanks Cro, just glad I already had them done and sent. This quilt I'm working on is driving me nuts, not just the quilt but a whole house worth of stuff. Dining room table runner and placemats for 8, kitchen table, runners for 2 living rooms, runner for family/TV room, 2 night stands, dresser, chest of drawers and then an oversized King size quilt. Been doing the quilt this weekend and still have the borders to go. It will be 118x118...This is it so far Name:  mike's.jpg

    Your time will come, something you have to look forward to. At least I did for many years.

    CRO and jaba - really beautiful blocks. I wasn't going to join for April....but maybe.... It helps that the deadline is May 15. I'm a newbie and already overcommitted for April, ha! ha!

    Oops! My fault - I meant May 30! That's what I get for reading mutiple posts before coffee. It's the candy swap that changed due date from April to May.

    Good thing, you have 2 more weeks than what you thought! Maybe we'll see blocks from you???? The more the merrier, variety you know.

    The other factor is how much I improve while making the patriotic D4P! My first block looked odd directionally (note to self - watch your stripes). Second block was too small. Third block, just right...but then I left for Arizona on spring break. So let's see if I can remember what I did right and make the rest of my blocks turn out like the third one. Time is the issue. Five kiddos and a hubby here needing mama, too.

    That explains it! You must be very good at time management to even get to the sewing machine. Bless you, you have your hands full for sure.

    I've already received sets from Jaba and QLG and they are wonderful. I finally figured out (duh!) that more variety is better and makes for a much better swap. ((how many months did it take me to figure that out???)) so please go for as much variety as you like as long as each block as one CW fabric and one light shirting fabric.

    Bottom line - all 6 blocks per set do not have to be the same as in past D4P swaps.
    Ever learning. Ever improving - - -
