    Fall Colors Block Swap

    12 1/2 inch UNFINISHED Fall Colors sampler blocks.

    Sign-up will close on October 1, 2011. PM me if you wish to join.
    Sign-ups are accepted by pm only.
    Please let me know which block you will be making so we avoid having duplicate blocks.

    Please do not sign up until you have your block sets finished and ready to mail.

    Please use 100% pre-washed cotton (required) and make sure your blocks measure 12 ".

    You make 12 blocks all alike. You will receive one of yours back and 11 different blocks.

    If you want to make multiple sets, just make sure each set consists of 12 blocks all the same. The limit is 2 sets per swapper.

    Please mark EACH ONE of your blocks with a little slip of paper pinned to each block, or a sticky label can be used. Please put the label on the back as sometimes some of the 'sticky' adheres to the block itself. Please include your real name (optional), Board name, and the block name.

    Please put your blocks into the mail no later than October 10, 2011. Please pm me for my address. If there is going to be a problem with having them here by October 10th, please pm me. You also have the option of dropping out of the swap.

    I will mail them back out by October 30, 2011 or as close to that as possible.

    Send them to me along with a self-addressed, stamped envelope for return postage... whatever 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.

    The flat rate envelope will hold two sets. Any more than that, you will need another flat rate return addressed stamped envelope.

    Please review the rules that apply to all swaps. They apply to this swap, too. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    I started working on my Salt Lake City Blocks today. I am going to be using totally different fabrics for the leaves and diamonds blocks. I am just using fabrics from my stash. I have lots of fall fabrics. It's one of my very favorites. Love fall.

    You know, I really haven't thought about Halloween. I think they already had a halloween swap so I think maybe just anything with Fall Colors. Prints, solids..... anything with the colors of fall.

    Blessings!!

    I am finished with my Salt Lake City Blocks. Next I will start the leaves and diamond blocks. I have all my fabrics now. I had to go get some more at JoAnn's. Some of my Salt Lake City blocks have different fabrics, because I ran out of what I was using, but they look just as nice.

    I haven't posted the leaves and diamonds block yet, the one I posted was the Salt Lake City block. I am however almost done with the leaves and diamonds blocks. I Just have to square up each little leaf block and then sew four of them together for each of the 12 blocks. I will post a pic this week.
