Fall 10 1/2 Blocks That's a wrap! All blocks back to you.

Post by javin22 » Mon Sep 01, 2014 6:05 am

Feeling fall in the air? My favorite time of the year. Let’s have some fun with the gorgeous colors, that fall brings and make a throw size quilt. Please read all instructions before signing up and please ask me any questions you may have.
This swap will be all fall colors ( reds, oranges, yellows, golds, browns, greens ect.) Fall Batiks would be great for this. You can use different fabrics, use up scraps if you like, but please make the same pattern for all 20 blocks. Note: I will allow glitter, metallics, fair frost ect for this one.
Limit 20 blocks
100% good quality cotton or batiks
Wash all fabrics
Can be pieced, applique, embroidered, or a combination. No raw edges, must be sewn down properly.
10 ½ inch block. Make sure every single block measures at least that. It is better to have them a bit big, than too small, and have angry swappers. If you applique, cut your blocks at least 11 inches, as sometimes the satin stitch will draw the fabric in and then it won’t measure correctly.
If you have a background in your block, you can use fall color background or keep it tan, cream, gold, ect. No white. No muslin.
Would like lots of different blocks, (leaves, acorns, pumpkins, ect, any fall theme applique, or pieced block with fall colors. No Halloween colors or themes.
This would even make a great Secret Santa gift if you wanted to do that.
Please just send the $6.00 for return shipping. I have the padded envelopes to send them back to you, which will include tracking. International swappers- whatever you sent last time was just right.
THE FINE PRINT

To join you must be an active posting member of this forum for at least three months and be familiar with the way Chriss and I run our swaps.I will not hunt you down on facebook ect. You must stay in contact with me on here or my email. If you want my email, pm me.

If you sign up and fail to follow through on this swap you won’t be able to sign up for the next swap Chriss or I host. If after sitting out a swap you fail to follow through again you won’t be able to sign up for any swap either of us host…. If you take a spot in this swap it is a commitment and must be met.

Be sure to use priority mail and keep your postal receipt. It will have your tracking number on it. In the event your blocks don’t show up and you don’t have this number you won’t be able to sign up for our next swap. If you do have this number we will be able to track your package it will be located and included.

Be sure to check in often to see how things are moving along…

Chriss and I run a pretty tight swap and if these requirements seem too rigid please don’t sign up.

Again if you have ANY Questions, PLEASE ASK. I try to get on here several times a day most days to answer. You can sign up first and then decide which blocks you want to do. Thanks so much for joining in the fun. Send me a pm or just post on here if you want to join.
Now get out your beautiful fall fabrics and let’s have some fun. Vinae

You can count on me. I'm so happy you have included piecing. I'll need to shop for for Fall fabric & seek out 10 1/2" patterns. Maybe tomorrow.
