    Red/White/Blue Swap

    12 1/2 inch UNFINISHED Red/ White/Blue sampler blocks.

    Please use 100% pre-washed cotton (required) and make sure your blocks measure 12 ".

    You make 12 blocks, all alike and send them to me along with a self addressed, stamped envelope for return postage... what ever it cost to send it to me, it will cost to return your blocks to you...so be sure to put enough postage on your envelope.

    Please let me know which block you will be making so we avoid having duplicate blocks.

    I will send you back one of your blocks and one each of 11 different blocks..

    Please mark EACH ONE of your blocks with a little slip of paper pinned to each block , or a sticky label can be used. Please include your message board id , your real name (optional) and the block name .

    If you want to make multiple sets, just make sure you have 12 blocks of each pattern. You will receive back as many as you send.

    Sign up closes May 15, 2010

    Mail your blocks to Deb Watkins by May 31, 2010, please pm her for her address.

    She will mail them back out by June 15, 2010 or as close to that as possible.

    I would like to sign up. I may make more than 1 set, but for my first set, I am going to make a block from an Anchors Away quilt. The quilt is in American Patchwork and Quilting, June 2009. I love this block and it is so easy and fun to make.

    Ok, count me in too.
    I want to do Goose Creek & Austin blocks from Quilters Cache.
    I may do another set of something later if I have time.

    Question: Do I need to do all 12 blocks of each pattern exactly the same colors?

    Will still do 'Louisiana', but not 'Baby Bud' - that was for the spring swap. Haven't decided on 2nd one yet.

    Hi, I'm new to the group and would like to join the swap if that's OK. If so I'd like to do Crossroads 2 and Ribbons Two from Quilter's Cashe.
