    Funky Jungle & Zoo Animals Block Swap--Sign Up closes 6/1/12

    Have you ever gone on a safari? Visited a rain forest? Or perhaps a trip to the zoo? What neat animals have you seen?
    Let's create some funky blocks of these great animals! Funky can mean it can be a silly pattern, or unexpected colors, or great fabrics fussy cut. Use your imagination and have fun!!

    Blocks can be any size divisible by 3" (+ seam allowances). They can be square or rectangular. Ex: 3.5"x3.5", 3.5"x6.5", 6.5"x6.5", 6.5"x9.5", 9.5"x15.5", 12.5"x12.5", etc. I think you get the idea. Smallest being 3.5"x3.5".

    Blocks will be swapped in sets of 4. Limit of 6 sets (24 blocks) per swapper. Limit 2 sets of same pattern/design. Let's keep it interesting!
    **Note on 3.5" blocks**- Since they are small, you will need to send in 2 - 3.5" blocks of different designs per block to swap. This will help to keep it fair. So you need to send 8-3.5" blocks to get 4 bigger blocks back. Limit of 1 set (8 blocks) of 3.5" ones per swapper. Please PM me if you have questions.

    We will be swapping all 4 blocks/set. If you'd like one for yourself, please make an extra.

    Plain fabric pieces are a nice extra to share with others. However, they will not count as blocks.

    Nitty-Gritty:

    *Use good quality pre-washed 100% cottons. No muslin. No flannel. No blends.

    *Remove selvages before cutting pieces for blocks.

    *Seam allowances should be 1/4". Blocks need to survive machine washing and drying.

    *All applique blocks MUST have all pieces sewn down in some manner. Please, no monofilament thread.

    Blocks should be mailed to me in a ziploc baggie inside an envelope, with your board name and real name on each individual block.
    You need to include $5.30 in stamps or cash for me to send your return blocks in a Padded flat rate envelope. They hold more! I will provide the envelopes. Please no pre-paid mailing labels, as the post office doesn't like them. Delivery Confirmation will be extra $, if you choose.

    Swap sign up deadline is 6/1/12. Blocks to me by 6/30/12. I will swap & mail out by 7/15/12.

    International folks please include enough $ for your blocks. PM me if questions here, we will make it work!

    *Please understand that I will have no choice but to return blocks unswapped that don't comply with this first post.

    Please send me a PM to sign up for this swap. I wouldn't want to miss you!

    Come on and join in the fun! Let's get our creativity flowing! We can chat and share pictures here, and enjoy the journey!

    Love your swaps! Have to see what I want to make. I see your new instructions are 4 blocks instead of 6. I'll PM you when I decide on designs. Always fun

    Clarification?
    If it says no more then 2 of the same sets does that mean

    2 sets of type A, 2 sets of type B, 2 sets of type C for a total of 6 sets is OK?

    or does it mean

    2 sets of type A and 1 set of B, 1 set of C, 1 set of D, 1 set of E for a tol of 6 sets?

    Thanks!
    Anna Quilts

    Anna- either way is fine! I just don't want, say 16 of the same block. And in a set, the blocks can vary also. Just want to have fun with this.
    If you wanted to make 2 sets of dancing elephants, a set of cheetahs, a set of hippos in various clothing, a set of smiling giraffes, and a set of 4 different animals, that all is okay~
