    MAY – ASIAN INSPIRED DISAPPEARING FOUR PATCH swap

    MAY – ASIAN INSPIRED DISAPPEARING FOUR PATCH swap - Sign-ups are open until I have a maximum of 25 swappers. Each month is loads of fun with a wide variety of fabrics in each swap. Sew much fun!
    Here’s how it works: we will be making 8 ฝ” unfinished D4P Block quilt blocks. One set equals 6 D4P blocks. You may make as many as 6 sets of 6 blocks each which would be 36 D4P blocks. Wow! That’s a lot of quilt blocks. Imagine how cool that quilt will be??? I know! Right??? Mix it up and use a variety as long as you stay within the theme for the month. You could make 36 blocks each with different fabrics! Wow!!! The more variety the better. That would make a wonderful swap, wouldn’t it?

    May’s theme is ASIAN INSPIRED prints. Please use one ASIAN print with a solid black for each block.

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

    http://sewwonderful.blogspot.com/201...o-9-patch.html

    Please use 100% cotton, quilt quality fabric to make your quilt blocks. Please pay attention to the back of your quilt blocks; pressing, snipping extra threads, etc. Be sure your quilt blocks are squared up, trimmed and even.

    Please PM me 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 JUNE 30TH.
    ** Please label your quilt blocks**

    Mailing: please put blocks in a large plastic 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 Mailฎ Padded Flat Rate Envelope (9 ฝ” x 12 ฝ”), buy $5.95 in POSTAGE, put postage 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

    This is so exciting!!! We have several swappers signed up - some wonderful 'regulars' ((love you guys!)) and some new people. I'll update our list soon. Great to see everyone!

    Just to reiterate: please send a variety. The sets do not need to be a matched set. If you wanted to, you could send 36 different blocks. How fabulous would that be??? ((It took me awhile to figure that one out - - - LOL))

    Please post pictures! We love pictures!

    So happy to see so many swappers!!! Unfortunately I had mine done before it was announced that all could be different so my sets are all alike.

    Me too Cro, but for me it's easier to do it that way....especially on the ones I have to find and buy fabric for. Now I even have all the tone on tones for each set. Great borders and or binding I hope. I'm sure I'll find something to use it on
