    Rhonda's June Quilt Block Swap!!!! --Sign up by June 5

    Okay Ladies and Gents!! We are going to do this swap for another month!!

    I am staying involved this month and see if we can drum up some more players!! We don't want this swap to die out so help us fill up the slots and come play with us!!!

    You can pm me and let me know what is going on with you all. I would like to know when you send and when you receive. Thanks!!


    Sign up by June 5. Mail out by July 5
    Partners will be assigned on March 4

    In this swap you will choose and make a 12 1/2" unfinished quilt block I designed.
    Then once you have your partner you can discuss color choices and exchange addresses.
    You will send your quilt block to your partner and she will send hers to you.

    Please let me know when you mail your quilt block and when you receive your quilt block.
    If you are not going to be able to follow through or will be late PLEASE let me know.

    You will need a 2 1/2" template.
    If you need one let me know and I will send you one for free.


    Please use 100% cotton --prewashed or not is up to you.
    Don't use borders to make it 12 1/2".

    Please make sure to read the general rules that apply to all swaps here at the Quilting Board:


    This swap is for all skill levels. If you feel you can't do one of my Quilt Blocks but you would like to try I will be happy to help. Just pm me and I will walk you through any parts you feel you need help with.


    Come join the fun and get to know new people and enjoy exchanging with friends

    Silly woman there is only one page with 1 - 10 posts. I have a hard time sometimes telling that too. I find myself clicking on page 10 when I was wanting to move on to the next list in the Tutotial section for example not a specific thread. It can be confusing the way they have it set up

    Okay here are the Partners!!

    Rhonda.........Cheryl
    Stitchengramie....buffy2
    sgardner............meant2b
    sgardner............kd7kyo
    TwinRiverFarm....Bbemerald


    If you have time and can post I would like to see pics of your fabrics and then pics of your progress if you could please. It helps to keep the conversation going and makes for a more fun thread.

    If anyone has questions just let me know!! Hope you all have fun!!!

    You can now pm your partner and discuss likes and dislikes and colors etc. You will need to exchange addresses either now or when you are ready to send.

    Also PLEASE remember to let me know when you mail and when you receive.
    If for any reason you can't make your quilt block let me know as soon as you can so I can find someone to substitute. Not letting me know will result in blocking from this swap in the future.

    Has everyone talked to your partner yet? Make sure you let me know if you have any trouble getting ahold of your partner.

    Looking forward to seeing pics of your fabrics and progress!!

    Talking

    How is everyone coming along? Has anyone finished their quilt block yet? IF your partner agrees you can post a pic of your quilt block!

    I thought I would post a few pics of mine in progress. Cheryl I think I might even have mine done by tomarrow!! Can you believe it?? LOL

    Here are some pics of my progress. I used the Kansas Dugout blocks and this is one layout. I have considered a couple of other layouts. This isn't my final decision!! But it is close!

    Rhonda,

    I have never thought about sewing the dugout blocks into strips and then cut them out. I wish you had shown this in your tutorial when making a dugout block. It does seem a lot easier to do, then to cutting swatches.

    Well I 've never done it that way before yesterday! I think Katie mentioned once that she did them that way. But I hadn't tried it til just now. It never occurred to me before. I am going to do a tute on it soon.

    You haven't lost me, I'm still following you on everything. And yes, I did it in strips because I do the Boston Blocks, HS, most everything in strips. And the Kansas Dugout, is one of my favorite. And I love this block!
