Spring  is in the air, our sewing rooms are tempting us while outdoor activities beckon.  How about a Sew Much Fun block to keep those sewing rooms company over the summer months?  Anything sewing room related would work, sewing machines, needle and thread, dress forms, the ideas are endless !!!  These block would be great for a wall quilt so embellishments could really add to your blocks and the size leaves plenty of room to add personal touches to the finished quilt.. Everyone would make 12 identical blocks (1 to keep and 11 to share).  Sign up by May 5th, blocks need to be to me by June 20th so they can be mailed back out by June30th.  This one will run a bit longer than the usual month so it will hopefully fit with busy Spring schedules.  

This swap will be for beginner quilters and beyond.

SIZE: 6.5 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 ( NO SEE THROUGH FABRIC)

 DESIGN:  Anything that fits the theme---- let's make this a fun quilt so take embellishments are fine, just 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, applique, free form, touches of embroidery, embroidery machine.

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:   May 5th .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 June 20th.  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!

I agree, MT ones I've been in are treats.

Thank you Beth. That is so awesome

You are welcome, will make sewing that much more enjoyable.

Thank you Beth!! What a wonderful little extra for everyone!

Thought it would be nice to do since I had one and it fit the theme.  This is what happens when I see a squirrel, (cute project) I get off track just a little.  I have a couple more to make for my SS pal and a couple more friends.  I get to use up lots of scraps.  That is the best part of making them.

Oh, and the little edging you see, it is water soluable stabilizer, when you wash your mug rugs, it will go away.  I was in a hurry and did not soak each one of them.  mine at the office looks the same.  I made the variety for everyone so let Mary know what you want so she can be sure it gets in your return package.

Omg!!!!! You made all of us one? Wow.... thank you so much!!

Just for you.  (snicker)

oh Beth they are so adorable...................love them and it will be put right next to my machine - If I can get my health a bit better - I had something I wanted to send in for everyone too but will keep it a surprise........love love this group - so much fun and so supportive - I belong to many but exchange with none other than this one - it is like family that I have never met LOL.

This really is a great group!

Those are awesome Beth!

Oh, Beth, they are sweet and you are sweeter.  We are great gals, aren't we?  ;-)

I keep eating enough sweets to make me real sweet.  That way people can tolerate me. HA HA HA

And yes, we are great gals, all of us.
