    Quilting Bee Monthly Swap, April 2016

    This is the posting for the Quilting Bee swap for April, 2016. I hope all will stay in contact and please post when you receive your blocks.

    1. You will receive a swap name, and it is up to you to confer with your partner for theme and address. You will have ONE month to make one block for that person and send it to them. The blocks must be 100% prewashed cotton, 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" unfinished (12" when sewn into a quilt). You can make them in any fashion - pieced, appliqued, paper-pieced, embroidered, other methods - as long as you follow your swap partner's specifications to the best of your ability so their project can be unified. Please think carefully about your pattern and choice of fabrics, as some are not able to get out and purchase speciality items.

    If blocks do not fit the criteria of 12 1/2" unfinished, they will be returned to the sender. Sorry to be so direct but the idea is to receive nicely finished blocks.

    Again, this is supposed to be a fun swap, so everyone have fun. Please contact me if you have any questions, or would like to join, we always welcome new quilters.

    Well I'm sorry, Donna - I PM'd her last week about my February block and still haven't heard from her either. She had told me at the end of Feb., my block would be a bit late, she'd "bit off a lot to do" and needed to get that done. Sooo, not sure what's up. If you would like to do a swap with someone else, go ahead and post so - maybe someone will pick it up. If I don't hear from her before May 1st, I will not include her in further swaps.
