Default Fall Block Swap/So a new adventure begins.

This is a Fall Block Swap.
Think Fall colors, Apples, Pumpkins, (no Halloween), Scarecrows, Leaves, Acorns, Crows ect.
Please pm (personal message me) to sign up.

The signups are open till June 7, 2017. (5 weeks)
The Deadline to have them to me (in my hands) is July 12th (5 weeks)
I will swap them and mail them back out to you no later then August 2. (3 weeks)
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

The Swap is for sets of (4) Blocks. The limit is 5 sets per swapper. 20 Blocks maximum.
NO Squares of fabric or DP9's will be counted as a block.
I will trade out all the blocks I receive. Don't forget to make a set for yourself.
Block size are 6 1/2" Sq. or 9 1/2" Sq. or 12 1/2" Sq. These three sizes play very nicely together.
The sets should be the same image/block. But, different fabrics 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 in a priority flat rate envelope using stamps only on the return envelope. (Metered mail expires.) 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.) My budget is tight this summer. Pm me for my address when your ready to send. You can mail whenever your ready.

Place your finished sets in one Large baggie. Make sure your board name is on each block.

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

***NEW***

I have a request. I am requesting that each swapper enclose One extra block in the swap theme. This is a just in case block. In case the mail messes up and things go awry. If I need them, I will use them. I hate to disappoint anyone. If I don't need them, I will hold a drawing 2 weeks after the swap blocks have been mailed out, and whoever wins, I will send them the extra blocks. I will take care of the postage. I do thank you for helping me out.

Now, let's share early fabric pulls, ideas, and blocks and have a little fun.

Hope to see you on our FALL adventure.

I have a question... If I send in a pack of 12.5" blocks (4 the same) will I get 4 different 12.5" blocks back? Do you get back the size you send in?

Sounds like fun.

You will get a variety of sizes back. It really all depends on what I receive. But, best bet, expect a variety of sizes back. Yes, when I swap out, I try to make sure no one gets there own blocks back or gets doubles from others back.

Not sure about the multiple sizes thing. I would only like to swap 12.5" blocks so this swap is probably not going to work for me. Will lurk and see what everyone creates!

Sounds good ladies, Maybe when I get my Summertime quilt pieced I can tip the scales in favor of joining the swap. I have my blocks pretty much prepped and waiting till the weekend to work on the others. (Swap out of blocks.) It is a lot of fun to join the blocks together. So, maybe we will capture a few lurkers.

Lurk away ladies.

Cuppy and Deecee, I have you signed up.
