Christmas Blocks Swap! Thank You All!

Post by gershwin64 » Thu May 09, 2019 4:37 pm

Are you ready for some Christmas?

2 weeks to sign up. Now through Monday May 27th

11 weeks to make your blocks and send them to me. Now through Monday July 29th.

Mail blocks to me by Monday July 29th using priority mail and save your receipt, it will have your tracking number on it. Blocks and return postage must be in my possession by August 5th so I can sort and mail them back to you August 9th or sooner

Postage $8.00 No stamps, no checks, pre-paid labels are fine, international will be worked out individually. I have Flat Rate envelopes to send your blocks back to you so please don't send return envelopes.

Please attach a label( OR NOT, QUILTERS CHOICE) to each block with your forum name, real name, city and state. Keep the blocks flat, no individual baggies. Put your blocks in a large zip lock bag with your address on it before sending it to me.

This swap will be closed when either we have 20 sign ups or the 2 week sign up period is past.

THE FUN PART.
This is where I try to confuse you a bit.



COLOR AND FABRIC: QUILTERS CHOICE of CHRISTMAS FABRICS AND COLORS
Use pre washed 100% cotton. No muslin, No Pastels, No Glitter,

Mix things up. Make it scrappy. You can use whatever fabric you have in your stash or buy new, your choice. Background fabric is Quilters Choice.

THE FINE PRINT
Make sure your blocks are ready for the person receiving them to square up and sew together. Size of block is QUILTERS CHOICE but no smaller that 6 1/2" unfinished. You can do square or oblong, my goal is for a Christmas sampler with all sorts of different size blocks to arrange in an awesome way to have an amazing quilt for my bed!

If you send incomplete blocks or your blocks are not the required size and of the required fabric they will be returned to you using your postage. Be sure to re-check the size and seams before mailing.

I run a tight drama free swap. If you are a person who can't send on time or if you think the rules are to strict please don't sign up.

Communication and follow through are key. If you have any questions please ask prior to taking a spot in this swap. If you have any problems or concerns, PM me and we can take care of it in private so it doesn’t cause problems on the forum.

If you join you must comment in this swap thread once a week with an update

I use only this forum and e-mail for communication. If you need my e-mail address please PM me.

WooHoo 🎉🎊☃️❄️🌲I was just thinking about it!!! I’m in.
Is it possible to please give us a little more time than the last swap. That would definitely help. Thanks for considering it.

I am in, will be doing a wreath! I got this!

As I read through the responses to the discussion about Lotto. It seems as though time is a problem for many. Maybe longer than 8 weeks would be a good thing.
Have a great day! Valerie
