Swap name: 50 States Block Swap 2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: SarahJ2001

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES




BE SURE YOU WILL WANT TO FINISH THE WHOLE SWAP SO NOBODY IS MISSING STATES AT THE END.

Details of swap: (most of this was copied from Round 1)
The goal of this swap is for each person to have a block for each state and in the end to be able to make a quilt out of them.

Logistics: There will be 10 people in the swap. Each person will get 5 states. You will make one of each for yourself to keep and 9 more of each to send. In all, you will have made 50 blocks by the end of the swap. If we do not get 10 people to sign up, then everyone will make more states. (You will still end up making 50 blocks no matter how many people join.)

You can list your top 3 state picks and some alternatives in the questionaire.  If two people pick the same states the person that PMd the questionnaire to me first gets it.  Id like everybody to at least get one of their top choices.  The rest of the states I will assign randomly. I will include a list of states chosen in the thread so we know whats left.

The block will be this one:
http://www.quilterscache.com/A/AustinBlock.html
This is a 12 inch block. The focus fabric can be ANYTHING that represents the state you have (state bird, flower, a sports team, symbol of the state, famous food from the state, etc....), and the background can be ANYTHING that you feel coordinates well and represents the state and block well.

Please indicate in the questionaire if you want the blocks to have the state name written on them by the maker or if you would rather get it blank and write it yourself. Some people might want uniform writing and do it all themselves. Others might not care.

Shipping: DC# will be mandatory due to the amount of work that will be put into this. When sending, include a note with each state explaining you chose the focus fabric (what it represents). You can ship as early as you want but be sure to send by August 28, 2009 at the very latest. You may either mail as you complete states or save them all for one mass mailing to each person at the end. Just contact me as you send so I know what has been sent.  

In the gallery, post pictures of the blocks you made. (Also post pictures of your progress if you want!)  Its kind of silly for everyone when receiving to post pictures since everyone is getting the same thing.  I think its best for the sender to post pictures. Hopefully way down the line we can see in the gallery what everyone ended up doing with their blocks.

N ADDITION:
- You must post in this thread at least once a week.
- All announcements will be made here so please bookmark this page
- Please try to create a package that you are proud of.
- Remember to take pictures before you send.
- Keep your receipts and DC#s
- Make sure you PM me (sarahj2001) when you send and receive.

Wow, this sounds like a really intense swap! Even if I don't end up joining (I need to think about my availability in the upcoming months,) I can't wait to see the results!

I'm only a novice, but I've made a quilt with a similar pattern (sawtooth star). I am super considering this because it seems like a cool piece to pass on later.

Rangerbeth - this isn't a difficult block.  Smiley

And I'm glad to see it's a bigger block.

I tried picking an easy block so that beginners could join also Smiley

Ooh dang - I should have picked Alaska!  You can give me any overfill on the west coast/Pacific ocean.  Smiley  I"m much more familiar with those states than here in the south.   Grin

I really want to sign up for this one but I have to wait for the feedback form my very first swap before I can sign up. Hopefully it comes through before the 10th and before spaces fill up  Undecided

I have to think about this one really hard.  My work schedule is a bit crazy, with a potential new job and relocation thrown in, so I need to consider my options.
