Sign up by March 20th, the 1st day of spring. Blocks must reach me by May 18th. Please read all the instructions thoroughly, and ask me any questions you may have.
This swap will be any solid fabric 100% cotton. If you need to use a background fabric, use a solid black. You can make a traditional block, applique, or create your own block. No machine embroidery.
All colors except, white, off white, beige, or cream. An exception can be made if you need eyes in your block. Please check with me 1st. No muslin, no flannel. Use good quality 100% cotton only. Pre-wash all fabrics before cutting. Don’t square up your blocks.
If you are using a black background, please make sure you use black or dark grey thread. Please don’t sew on black background with white thread. It will show through.
Block size : 12 ½”
Attach label on each block with forum name and real name and where you are from
Put blocks in one large ziplock bag , with your return address on it.
Make sure your blocks measure at least 12 ½”. Keep in mind you need room for any blocks with points. We don’t want to square up a block and cut off the points. Measure every block to assure it is 12 ½”. Make sure all applique is stitched down properly. Make sure you remove all stabilizers from applique.
Please ask me any questions you may have.
THE FINE PRINT
I will keep with the same rules as the other hostesses.
To join you must be a posting member of this forum for at least three months and be familiar with the way WE run our swaps. If you sign up and fail to follow through on this swap, you will not be able to sign up for the next swap. If you send incomplete blocks, your blocks are not the required size, you did not use the required fabric, or applique is not sewn not securely, they will be returned to you using your postage.
Be sure to use priority mail. This comes with a tracking number. Keep your receipt so you have it in case the package if misplaced by the postal service. Send the flat rate shipping amount of $7.20 for the return of your blocks. I will be using the padded envelopes. 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.
Communication is essential to have a fun swap. If you have any questions please ask prior to taking a spot in this swap. If you have any problems or concerns, PM, email, or call me. That way we can take care of it in private so it doesn’t cause problems on the forum. If you join, you must comment in the swap thread once a week or email me at least until I have your blocks.
I know that written communication sometimes doesn’t come across well. I will provide all swappers with my email and phone number. That way you can call me if you need something clarified. Also, I check my email more than the forum mail. I will have a quicker response if you have a question.
Be sure to check in often and have fun. Let’s create something special together.

Put me down for Jacobs ladder. I did a test one. It turned out pretty good. I did have some trouble getting it to square to 2.5”. But that’s why I practiced.
Will post a photo soon
PS. Monday 02-26
Got to thinking that maybe Jacob's Ladder isn't a very MODERN quilt block... I'll keep thinking...and let you know what I come up with, but for now I'll stay with JL.
