    BLACK AND WHITE SAMPLER BLOCK SWAP

    12 1/2 inch UNFINISHED black and white sampler blocks. Only blacks, whites and varying shades of the two, please. Prints with blacks and whites will also be perfect for this quilt but please make sure they are only black and white. (No green leaves, purple swirls, etc.)

    You make 12 blocks, all alike and send them to me 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. When you are ready to send them to me, please pm me and I'll give you my address.

    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 it 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.
    If you want to make multiple sets, just make sure you have 12 blocks of each pattern. You will receive back as many as you send.

    Mail your blocks to me by July 1, 2009

    I will mail them back out by July 15, 2009 or as close to that as possible.

    If you want to post what block you are making, we can try to keep them all as different as possible. Let's keep each other motivated to make the deadline and have lots of participants!

    I'm in.

    One question though... should the white be bright white or the off-white that is often in black and white prints?

    Both would be fine. Varying shades of white will give the quilt more interest.

    I'm in, I'm in!!!!

    I'm international, though, so we'll have to figure something out, since shipping is not the same. Last time it cost nearly 10 bucks to send TO the US, and only 3 to ship back to me...lol!

    You think that's bad... it cost me FORTY something dollars to send to the states! And only about $17 for the return trip.

    Since then I've discovered an envelope is much cheaper, so this time I may send each block in a single envelope.

    After I get my blocks finished I can go to the PO and see what it would cost for me to send them to you. Then you can just stick the cash in with your blocks and I'll pay for the postage here.

    Please remind me when the time comes for you to ship out just in case I forget.

    Thanks for taking this on. I am in. Is the fabric to be prewashed?

    I was thinking about doing the Empire Star - http://www.quilterscache.com/E/EmpireStarBlock.html

    take care, Maribeth

    i noticed people are picking blocks from the quilters cache site - is that a requirement to do the swap?

    not that there isn't anything there i'd choose - i just want to follow the rule.

    also is the background fabric going to be black or white?

    Got my fabric ordered. 3 half yard cuts of Lakehouse and Robert Kaufman. Figured it might get here before I can get to the fabric shop so I might as well order it online.
