*Blocks do not have to be complicated, just fun.

Applique, pieced or embroidered are welcomed.

                           DEAD LINE IS DECEMBER 1ST. 

* deadlines are firm!

* blocks must be in my hands by or before that date.

* late blocks will be returned to you untraded.

* If for any reason you can't not complete your blocks please feel free to drop out but please let us know so we can attempt to fill your spot.

* please use quality fabric that is not thin or see through. 

* it is perfectly acceptable to use fabric pens for eye, mouth and for detail in  your blocks! Keep other embellishments to a minimum for quilting purposes.

*You will provide a self addressed and stamped return envelope along with your blocks. You will be responsible for making sure you include enough postage.

*You will need to comment regularly  once a week or so, so I know you are still interested. If you don't I will assume you are no longer interested and remove you from the swap.

I have noticed several of you cutting blocks at 13x13 and allowing them to be trimmed to 12.5. I am going to start doing that as I have noticed that some of my backgrounds get ragged as I sew. And a couple even fell short of the 12.5 mark. It's a good idea. Just make sure your work falls within the 12.5 with seam allowances.


I would like to join this swap. It will be lots of fun.

Awesome Sharon, glad to have you.

Thanks Carla!

I am going to cut mine 13x13 as well ….Thanks for the suggestion. I am looking forward to this swap!

I think it's a good choice. Especially if you do applique. I've noticed some of my edges become ragged by the time I get through dragging them around under the needle. The 13x 13 gives the chance to freshen the cut.

OK Carla, I can do this.  My sister needs a snowman / winter block.  

Oh, good!  That gets us up to 8.  We swap junkies are going to have a blast.

We sure are. Lol. 

Ok Wilma.

Very cute Beth!!  Yay nice start! We already know what one block is going to be.
