Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
That wintery feeling is in the air, how about a winter wonderland quilt to warm up under on those cold days? Kick off the season with some winter wonderland blocks to make that winter quilt with. Anything Wintery would work, snowmen (or ladies) snowflakes, fun winter fabric, the ideas are endless !!! Everyone would make 12 identical blocks (1 to keep and 11 to share). Sign up by October 26th, blocks need to be to me by November23rd so they can be mailed back out by November27th.
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 ( NO SEE THROUGH 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: October 26th .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 November 23rd. 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!
