Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Holiday Magic would include snowmen or women, snowy trees, snowflakes, sleds, children sledding, etc.
This swap will be for beginner quilters and beyond.
SIZE: 12.5 inches un-finished blocks
NUMBER OF SQUARES: It takes 12 blocks for a quilt, make 12, keep one, send 11 in and you will get 11 back
FABRICS: Whatever fits the theme just make sure you use a quilt shop quality fabric
DESIGN: Anything that fits the theme---- let's make this a usable quilt so take it easy on the embellishments or make sure if you add some that the block can still be washable. It would be great if you sign your block in some way so everyone knows who they are from.
TECHNIQUE: pieced, paper pieced, appliqué, free form, touches of embroidery.
SWAP METHOD: Centralized. That means your blocks will be sent to me - ( send me a friend request so I can send you my address if you don't already have it.)
POSTAGE:Along with your blocks send me a STAMPED self-addressed FLAT RATE envelope. I will use this to send the blocks back to you.
SIGN UP DEADLINE: November 10th The goal is to have 12 joiners or more so that you will get back 11 different blocks.
SIGN UP: To sign-up post a comment to this discussion and send me a friend request if I am not on your friends list.Once you are signed up I will message you my address and you can do the same through a MQP message. It is a good idea not to post your address in the discussion because anyone, even those not in the swap can see it.
MAIL IN DEADLINE: ALL blocks must be in my hands by December 1st.. If you can get them done early, send them!
If you join and can not complete your blocks please notify me as soon as possible so the rest of the group is not waiting on your blocks. If life happens to throw a curve ball your way it is ok to cancel out, there's always next time! Remember to check back often for info and updates!!
If I have left anything out, or you have any questions, please ask!

This sounds like fun! What is the theme for November?
It is just a one time block swap. We do different themed block swaps, several times a year. This time you make 12 blocks and send in 11 then you get 11 different ones back. The theme is Holiday Magic, so, Snowmen, Snow Ladies, Snowflakes, sleds, holiday fabric, etc.
Want me to sign you up?
Count me in! I don't know when I'll have the time, but I'll get them done somehow!
I need to check my agenda first, plus my fabric stash. I am on a strict fabric budget and diet so can't buy fabric. I have to find my Christmas fabrics also. Not sure where they are in my large pile of storage bins full of scraps. I know I could use some blue and white on white. Will let you know once I get to digging. Have to get the muggy rugs finished first.
Connie: Could we mail in our mug rugs with these blocks to save on postage?
I have always enjoyed these block swaps, but have to think about it before I commit. thank you for hosting Connie
I just could not help it, needed those mini charm packs, so went to fabric store, and low and behold, yep, I found some red snowflake, blue snowflake, and a winter wonderland snowman fabric. All coordinated so I will be doing this swap. I will be making a shining star using Eleanor Burns ruler. It is my favorite block to make. Off to the cutting table tonight and then set by sewing machine to whip up this weekend, lets hope.
