    you can choose a "theme" which means that you can ask for certain colors, block style, so that when you collect enough blocks through the year you can put them together and make a quilt and there will be a matching theme. Like black & white with accent color. people will then make you a block with those colors using any pattern they want, some people applique stuff on or put beads or paint, or just traditional, paper pieced. Some people's theme might be teddy bears, or flowers. You get the idea?
    If you go to the lst page of this thread you will find a link with everyone's theme. hope that helped. Clear as mud!!lol

    Hey everyone-I have a question! I am new to this swap and notice that several people are getting/sending two blocks. When we get our assignments and there is more than one theme listed are we supposed to make a block for each theme? Or are we supposed to select which theme we would like to make a block for? Thanks for your help!

    The "rules" are one block per trade. Some people like to do two blocks for their partner, however it is certainly not required. I think it was MadeinMaine that said that if you want to do 2 blocks, it's a good idea to let your partner know. I have been given 2 blocks by one or two of my partners and I'm always thrilled!! But I also feel a little guilty because I made one.

    Some swappers also like to send some extra fabric or a giftie along with their block, which is very sweet and such a nice surprise! But again, the only thing written out is that we swap one block.

    Wow, funny, we have two turtles swapping. Sorry, it just hit my funny bone.

    Welcome QuiltQtrs, you'll love this swap, the people are so friendly, and very helpful. They are also very supportive. This will be my 4th swap, and I love it.

    Mary,
    I received your block today. It is a wonderful star on a yellow background. I went to get the camera, and found it gone. So I can't post a pic until my DH returns from his trip. Ah, well. Thank you so much for the block!

    Hi everyone - Unfortunately I have had to drop out of this swap for a bit - too much on at work at the moment and not enough time at home. I have several family quilts I need to try and get finished in the little spare time I have.

    But I love this swap and if you don't mind I will still hang over your shoulders to see all the beautiful blocks that are being posted.

    Hope to be back soon.
