    Wonky Log Cabin~ Fall colors ~ Sign-up Closed

    Wonky Log Cabin~ Fall colors ~ Sign up until August 1st

    Fall is my favorite season of the year, so I decided to start a Wonky Log Cabin block swap to be done in fall colors. Browns, greens, reds, oranges,yellows, & golds. Think of the colors of the trees in the fall.

    Use any size strips that you would like.
    **FINISHED blocks MUST measure 12 1/2" square.**

    *Use good quality pre-washed 100% cottons. No muslin. No flannel. No blends.
    *Seam allowances should be 1/4".

    1 set = 6 (12 1/2") blocks. Limit is 4 sets per swapper.
    Blocks should be mailed to me in a ziploc baggie inside an envelope, with your board name and real name on each individual block by August 31st.
    If your blocks don't reach me by September 15th, I have no choice but to return them to you. I will swap the blocks & have them in the mail by September 31st.

    **You need to include $5.30 in stamps or cash for me to send your return blocks in a flat rate envelope. I will go to the post office & get them myself. Please no pre-paid mailing labels. Our post office does not like them! Delivery Confirmation will be extra $, if you choose. Just put me a note inside with your blocks & the extra $$.
    *International folks please include enough $$ for your blocks.


    Please send me a PM to sign up for this swap with your name, address & # of sets you are signing up for.

    General rules for swaps: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    Come join the fun & lets post lots of pictures of our blocks!

    Here's a sample that I made. But, just make a log cabin that you love, and make it a little wonky.
    Different size strips, tilted....just have fun & make sure they finish at 12 1/2".
    I think I'll try another one, just a little more wonky.

    Ah, I see. My plate's pretty full at the moment, but I'll see if I can come up with something. This will be a good way to use up some scraps!

    They are great! Love the colors you chose.

    As far as being exactly the same in each group, you can do them as close as possible if you like, but if you run short of a certain color, don't sweat it. Just use a different fabric. No quilt police here.

    you are very welcome for the FQ's. Hope you can use them.

    Just read through this again and am a little puzzled, you said finished block should measure 12 1/2" so blocks need to be 13"unfinished? or did you mean 12 1/2" unfinished which when sewed together would be 12" finished blocks? Just want to make sure.....

    I'm sorry! Yes, the blocks should measure 12 1/2" unfinished.

    Perfect. thanks for the heads-up,,,,,and while I was waiting for your answer, I realized I had some more fall fabric and hadn't done anything in purple, which is my favorite color, so update me to 4 sets. Will be putting them in the mail to you tomorrow.Name:  DSCF0610.JPG

    my 4 sets

    Just finished my 4 sets. I just had to lay them out for an idea of what the fall colors would look like.
    I really like it.
