    February Valentines Disappearing 4 Patch Swap - sign up til 1/30/14

    FEBRUARY DISAPPEARING FOUR PATCH swap - Sign-ups open until January 30th. 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 9 ˝” ((different size this month!!)) 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 thirty-six (36) D4P blocks. Wow! That’s a lot of quilt blocks. Imagine how cool that quilt will be??? I know! Right??? If you are making one set, you may either make all the blocks using the same theme fabric(s) or you may make each block using a different theme-for-the-month fabric(s). If you are making more than one set (up to 6 sets), use a different theme-of-the-month fabric in each set.

    February’s theme is VALENTINES. Please use ONE VALENTINES fabric then choose ONE OF THE FOLLOWING BACKGROUND fabrics per block: Red, Pink, Black or White to make each quilt block. The extra special surprise this month is a modified pattern – the D4P with a TWIST.

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

    http://round22.blogspot.com/2012/07/...ith-twist.html

    Please use 100% cotton, quilt quality fabric to make your quilt blocks. Please PM me by JANUARY 30th to sign up. Please provide:

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

    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 MARCH 30th. ** Please label your quilt blocks**

    Mailing: please put blocks in a large ziploc 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 and put 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

    What an interesting "twist" for this block. Going to have to think on this one for a bit.

    I am confused. In the Jan Batik swap you have the deadline for sign up Jan 30 with a due date Feb 28
    Also the same dates for the Feb swap.

    At the start of the swaps the dates were sign up by the 20th of the month and due the next month by the 20th.

    The Black & White D4P is due by Jan correct

    I guess I will think "twisted" and try this block. It does turn out very nice. Put me down for 6 sets. I know I have plenty of Valentine fabric. You know, like a whole dresser drawer full. Let the fun begin, later this month!!

    I want to make sure I understand what you are saying here. If I have it correct, 2 squares are Valentines fabric and the other 2 are either Red, Pink, Black or White. Or are you saying 1 square valentines, and the other 3 one of the red, pink black or white.

    Thanks for clearing it up for me.

    Two squares are Valentines fabric and then either two red squares or two pink squares or two white squares or two blacks squares.

    I'll post a picture soon!

    Correction: quilt blocks due on or before March 30th. I'll ask Patrice if she can edit that information in the original post.

    I like the idea of working on Valentine blocks during the month of February. It would feel holiday-ish while sewing without the pressure of needing it finished "on time." Anyway, I doubt I could get a quilt started in January quilted by February 14th anyway. I've never made a quilt from start to finish in less than 2 months. This way people can have plenty of time to arrange the blocks in a pleasing pattern and do the finishing work before using it next year (or anytime of year).

    PS. Added benefit: buying backing or sashing Valentine fabric on sale after the holiday.

    Evening All . . . .I went to the fabric store today trying to talk myself into buying Valentine's fabric I REALLY didn't like; and, I'm not a big fan of white and pink, either. I think it was the D4P Twist that I really wanted to do. Therefore I am dropping out of the Valentine's Swap. Hopefully, the D4P Twist will be used againsometime this year. I'll PM JC to cover all bases. . . .GP

    I know I have enough of one Valentines fabric to do this, but like Groovy Pieces, haven't seen any in the store yet that spoke my name.
    So could I use the one I have with white, red and black for three sets?

    Of course! I figure if we have some Valentines fabrics in our stash we'll make these blocks, put a fabulous quilt together and have it all ready for next Valentines Day! You see, there is a method to my madness - - -

    Sew glad to have you come play with us! Each month is different. Ya never know what kind of 'curve ball' I might toss your direction! We have fun - - - - great group of quilters! More importantly, everyone puts up with me (for which I'm very grateful!!!)

    Please send the the requested info & I'll add you to the Feb swap. Also, please note: the due date is March 30th (not Feb)

    Thanks - - - -
