Swap name: Quilt Block Swap Round 2  

 


Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  donniesgirl
Sign-up date range: 10/02/12-10/20/12
Date to send item by: 12/15/12

Additional Age requirement? No

- 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
- Is at least 18 years old: 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

Details of swap:
This is a swap for 12.5 inch quilt blocks*. People will be organized into groups of 5 and will send 3 blocks to each of the 4 other people in their group, for a total of 12 blocks per group. Swappers with excellent swap feedback may do more than 1 group (up to 3). Within each group it should cost about $12 total to send out to 4 people, with delivery confirmation (assuming within the US). Please keep shipping costs in mind when choosing your number of groups.

*If you fall in love with a pattern that yields a different sized block you can use it, up to 14 inches, but be sure to specify the size that it makes so that your partners aren't confused.

Everyone chooses their block or blocks that they would like made for them. It could be a specific block with an online link to the pattern or a general type (ie, stars). Keep in mind that people of different skill levels are involved, so please don't pick a super advanced block unless you also pick an easier block to go with it.

You will also choose your color palette. That could be a color family, a couple of particular colors, or something as vague as "brights" if you want to leave it up to the other swappers' interpretations. You maybe also/instead specify certain fabric patterns if they are vague enough, like plaid, stripe, polka dots, etc. Try to only be as specific as you need to be so that people can work from their stash as much as possible.

You must use 100% cotton fabric and press your seams as you put your blocks together, unless your partner(s) have specifically stated otherwise.

Measure your blocks before you send them out! They need to be 12.5 inches square. Send all squares in a ziplock style bag for protection.

Newbies are not allowed in this swap because there are multiple sendouts.

Please make sure to post in this thread to keep up with swap announcements. You will not be approved until you have posted here.

Please do not sign up until you have decided on your pattern and colors.
 For more info on this, read here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=415038.msg4907956#msg4907956

Communication is very important to me! You must pm your partner(s) and myself when you send out and receive.

Since this swap is for multiple sendouts, I reserve the right to refuse anyone with bad feedback regarding communication and/or late sending.

Maybe?Huh I am a quilter, and love exchanges... but I'm also trying to use up stash and scraps. Is there anybody that loves patchwork/scrappy quilts that would like to partner together? Though that would require 4 people.

I like sampler.  I think that is one of the problems with my questionaire LOL

Seeing how I do not have a block in mind. I have left it open. And seeing how I don't have a project in mind. So really do not have a pick in colors. I am making it hard when I thought it might make it easier LOL

I thought when I saw this swap. Hey a way to learn some more.  And the blocks I get can be worked into a simple throw or totes.

well and wonderment
