Lots of Craftsters have been wanting to make a "Craftster Blanket," so why not join a swap where you can get up to 6 blanket blocks in the media of your choice (Quilt, Knit, or Crochet)? The idea started in this thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=92559.0
Each participant will sign up for a media group (Quilt, Knit, or Crochet). There will be a maximum of 7 people in each group. Each group member will craft a blanket block for every other group member based on each member's specifications. Each will receive a different blanket block from each group member based on the specifications given in their questionnaire. So, for each group, every crafter will make a MAXIMUM of 6 blanket blocks (if the group fills up). You can see a visual example of how it works on the last post of page 4 of the link above.
If you would like to receive mixed media, say crochet and knit blocks, you may sign up for 2 groups. Friends of Craftster may sign up for all 3 groups. BUT! Remember that if you sign up for 2 groups, you could be making up to 12 different blocks, and if you sign up for all 3 groups, you could be making up to 18 blocks.
Also, keep your crafting time in mind when signing up.
If you don't think you can finish all the squares within the crafting time given, don't sign up for more groups. Also, keep in mind that you will be shipping to as many people as you craft for, and you will be required to submit to me a Delivery Confirmation number (within the US) OR a photo/scan of a post office receipt (if overseas).
Also, all participants must be willing to ship overseas.
SO SIGN UP AND GET YOUR BLANKIE STARTED!!!
