    Welcome to the Great Big Mini Block Swap! This block swap will be for 4.5 (5 inch unfinished) blocks taken from the following website:

    http://sentimentalstitches.net/free-...midget-blocks/
    (The blocks are available as PDFs. )


    Fabric should be washed, dried and ironed. Please send what you want to receive. Please consider prewashing a social obligation and courtesy to any who may have allergies and or live in smoke and animal free environments. Please use 100% cotton.

    Please only use 30ís reproduction fabric and bleached muslin (white muslin) for the background.

    There are 91 blocks to choose from on the website. To participate in the swap, please choose one (or more) pattern(s) from the website listed above. To help narrow down your selection, I will attempt to list all 91 blocks and their construction method.

    You will make 6 blocks all alike and send them to me along with a self addressed, stamped envelope for return postage which will be used to return your blocks to you. You will receive one of your blocks and 5 other unique blocks from other swap members. Since you will be getting blocks from so many other people, PLEASE MARK your blocks with a slip of paper- pinned on, or a paper sticker label, etc, with your online name and/or your real name. (Since these blocks are so small, a paper sticker label on the back of your block may be the best solution.)

    You may make multiple sets of 6 blocks. You will receive as many sets in return as you send in.

    Please have your blocks in the mail to me by MAY 15TH. Sign up closes April 30th. I will have them returned to you as quickly as humanly possible.



    APPLIQUE:
    9, 23, 27*, 29, 37, 38, 56, 63, 65, 66, 70, 74, 84, 86, 88,
    PAPER PIECING:

    Welcome aboard! This swap should be lots of fun- I can't wait to see how they look in real life. The paper versions are adorable...

    Sugarpumpkin, just head to a fabric or quilt shop. They'll show you- the reproductions are too cute for words!

    I think white would look better with the 30's fabric, so we'll do white or white on white. (W0W) Thank you for reminding me about the background, I didn't think about. (Oops!)

    Would like to join in. Do I need to tell you which block(s) I'm doing or can it be a surprise (maybe to me too)? :lol:

    Tuesy has twisted my arm....I'm in for at least a couple. I'm still trying to decide which ones.

    Did I read that the background has to be WOW? I don't want to be difficult but I would think muslin would be more authentic for that period. I can't think of any 30's WOW.

    Oh...can I use original 30's feed sacks?

    Well, I'll put it up to a vote, who prefers muslin? Most 30's fabric I have seen has white accents. I'm not an expert. (Just reporting on what I saw at the quilt store last week.)

    Yes, you could use real feed sacks! Neat!
