    BYC is not responsible for transactions outside the BST area of the forum. All swaps are at the swappers risk and in no way will the Staff be involved in disputes. All disputes should be handled privately as per BYC Rules. No feedback and no feedback threads are allowed in these swaps. Do not report issues with the swaps using the report button. Please resolve all issues privately with your swap partner and/or the the swap originator. BYC discourages all transactions outside the regular BST area. Non monetary swap transactions are only allowed in this forum and only in a Swap thread. You must be 18 or over to participate in any swap, trade or any other transaction on BYC. All BYC Rules apply.


    Let the quilting begin!
    I am on BYC often, and I will be available to answer questions, and all who send blocks will receive blocks from whoever else takes part. I ask that when you ship all of your blocks, add a large SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope) for easy block shipment. ALL BLOCKS are sent to me (yes, even yours your keeping) so that I can be sure every pile of blocks sent out contains one from every single sender. It’s confusing to keep track of 12 - 15 different piles, and who doesn't need one. I want no mistakes, so make and send them all.
    TO SIGN UP: Please put "SIGN ME UP" OR "YES, I'M IN" or something all by itself in a post on the forum. (Or, put it first, then elaborate) Please post you want to be involved HERE on THIS THREAD.
    Thanks
    Kat




    Block requirements:

    This will be the Arrowhead block
    This will make an 11.5" block

    Number of Blocks: 12
    Due Date: August 23rd
    One 10" square can be a print of any kind with a contrasting solid 10" square. You can make the blocks the same or all different.

    You can follow these instructions or go to the web site
    I made the block using a 10" pre-cut the finished block is 11.5 x 11.5 the cuts on the 10" block was 2.5 inches, these cuts are different than in the instructions use 2.5" cuts on your block


    you sew 2 10 inch squares right sides together, using 1/4" seam, Sewing 2" from the top right edge, pivot 1/4" from the corner and sew to the bottom left edge, sewing 2" from the left edge,sew to the top left corner, pivot 1/4" sew to starting point, top right edge.

    cut the unit diagonally through the sewn corners, stack the triangles, carefully aligning all edges,make sure you place the cut triangles together as shown in the diagram. Measure 2.5" from the left edge and cut through all layers, Without disturbing the stack, measure 2.5" from the bottom edge and cut through all layers. Iron, arrange the units as shown, sew and trim to 11.5"

    I'm in but a bit confused are we using the 2" or 2 1/2" for the cut line on our blocks for this swap?
    Also Aug. would be better for me too.
