This will be a swap for funky chickens. By funky, we mean that it can be a silly pattern, a regular pattern made up in unexpected colors, a great chicken fabric fussy cut....anything that is fun will work for this swap. The intent is to have a great time!

Blocks can be any size that is divisable by 3"....they can be square...or they can be rectangular...

A set will equal 6 blocks...you may make as many sets as you would like to recieve back...for instance, if you make 1 set (6 blocks), you will recieve 6 blocks back.....if you make 2 sets (12 blocks), you will recieve 12 blocks back.

The swap is open to all experience levels.

Blocks should be mailed to me in a ziplock baggie inside an envelope with your name (boardname) on each individual block. You should include a self addressed, stamped envelope for me to send your return blocks. Whatever it costs for you to mail to me is what it will cost for me to mail the blocks back.

Sign-up deadline is 15 Mar 2010. Mail date will be 1 April, 2010.

Come on ya'll......join the fun!

This sounds like a blast. One point I would like to make, however, is that if someone makes a 3" by 3" block and another person makes a 12" x 12" block, the postage will be quite a bit different because of the weight. I would keep that in mind when sending an envelope.

That is true on the postage.... Maybe send them in a $5.00 priority envelope? Then it will be covered no matter the other sizes....

So and size in increments of 3" plus the 1/2" seam allowance.... I think this will be a fun and interesting swap :D:D:D

Well...duh...ya'll are right about the postage. Would you all mind sending them in the flat rate priority envelope? Using the flat rate envelope is a great idea. Thanks for looking out for me!

I have a few questions, if you don't mind...

1. Your finished sized would actually be 3 1/2", 6 1/2", etc, right? For a seam allowance?

2. Are the offers intended to be 6 similar blocks?

3. Is there a color scheme we'll all be working from, or is it absolutely anything goes?

I am intrigued...
:D

Hope you join us Lava..

You will recieve back blocks of probably various sizes...I plan to open the envelopes and go down the row swapping blocks...so it should be a variety..just depends on what comes in.

There is no color scheme per se.....just funky...you will be able to tie them all together when you get them by using a consistant color sashing or another setting type block.

And yes...your finished size will be divisable by 3".....then plus the seam allowance...so 6" would be 6 1/2" if you were doing a square.

Where do I mail my block? Are 12 1/2 blocks preferred?
This does sound like fun.

If you decide to join us crafter....I will pm you my snail mail addy when you are ready to mail (just let me know)...and 12 1/2" blocks are certainly acceptable...but you can do them any size you would like (that is divisable by 3"). Oh...and remember, a set equals 6 blocks...you must swap at least 1 set. This should be lots of fun!

Alright... PM sent. I'm in for one set of 6 blocks. Do we have to tell you right away what size we're making? Hope not, as I have NO clue right now. :lol:
