    Updated -Siggie Swap 2012 Sign Ups close August 1st 2012

    The swap is still not full so adding another month to try and get this filled - so sorry for those that have sent in already for the delay- We are gaining ground and it was mentioned that many are out doing family/fun things during the summer months so maybe that is why it is not full yet ? I am ever hopeful

    Due to some concern about a short turn around time I have added a month - hope this helps get more signed up
    Well it seems like it is that time of year again to do a Siggie Swap ... so here goes .....

    We will be using a version of this block :

    http://www.quilterscache.com/I/IndianHatchetBlock.html

    as it is shown will make 16 blocks for this swap so hoping it doesn't take long to make them

    One section should equal 4 1/2"

    Please use 100% prewashed cotton - white or WoW for the center - scrappy for the corners

    Because of the way this swap gets done and so I don't get buried under a ton of blocks I am limiting signup to the first 64 people to sign up, so if all goes well you will get back 63 different blocks and one of your own. Commitment is key to the success of this swap - so if you are not sure DO NOT sign up until you have the blocks finished .

    Whatever it costs you to ship to me - is what you need to include for return postage

    In the center strip please include - your real name, board name, year and State or Country - Use a Pigma or Fabric Pen, Sharpies do not work well when writing on fabric

    Of course all the standard swap rules apply :

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/member-...-a-t20154.html

    I do realize that this will not be big enough for a quilt by itself but by adding borders/sashing/extra blocks you can make it bigger - and hey we are a creative group we can make it work or leave it 32 x32 and have it as a wall hanging

    Sign ups will close August 1st - mailed to me by August 15th ,will try to get mailed back out by August 30th-

    This swap has been a lot of fun in the past - so let the fun begin

    Please feel free to ask any questions- voice any concerns - or just follow along on the journey

    Having a bad math day!!!!

    Do we make 256 of the 4 1/2" units? 16 per 16"block and 16 of the blocks?
    Or do we only make 16 of the 4 1/2 units?

    Please help an old lady figure this out.

    The way I'm reading it, we make 64 of the individual 4-1/2" blocks, since it reads, "you
    will get back 63 different blocks and one of your own". And if 64 of the individual 4-1/2" blocks were sewn together (8 blocks x 8 blocks), that would make a 32" mini-quilt.

    Moonrise- you are correct with the math - you will be making 4 of the 16 unit blocks or 64 of the separate blocks

    Sunliten- the corner blocks are 2 1/2 - there are 2 pages to the pattern and for some reason they tell you 4 1/2 on page 1 and 2 1/2 for the corner block on page 2

    I may have to sit this one out because I can't cut yet to see if I even want to do this. I know I have enough fabric to make them, but until I can cut, no good. Will watch

    So if I get this right, we make 64 of the 4-1/2" blocks and we do not connect them. I'm unclear on whether we put all our information on all of the blocks or just one? I'm new to the board but would love to participate. You can count me in.

    You will make 64 of the small block - and on each block in the white area write: Your real name , your board name , state or country and the year , so :

    Sharon Bxxxxxx
    Sharon b Indiana
    2012

    use a fabric pen or pigma pen- experience shows a sharpie will spread out as you use it to write.

    Will add both of you to the list - Thanks for joining

    Is it ok to have all the corner squares a different color/shade/pattern (scrappy) or should they all be identical?

    Jannie- It can be scrappy , that is what makes this swap fun - you can use up small pieces of fabric Some have a hard time working with scrappy so they will make theirs all the same and that is fine also

    I would love to do this swap. I've done one before. However, the timing is just not right for this one. Hope you all have fun and enjoy the swap!

    I want to sign up, but have to check the time thing as well. If I finish my quilts for quilters swap this weekend, then I can join in the fun. I have enough fabric for sure and the scraps are no problem at all. I would have to make enough to make a lap quilt. Hopefully I can decide before you fill up. I will be watching. How many so far?
