Cancer Hearts & Ribbon Block Swap---Signed Closed December 1

    Cancer Hearts & Ribbon Block Swap

    Theme: 12 1/2 inch block from Fat Cat Patterns http://fatcatpatterns.com/PDFs/ThinkPink2007.pdf

    My
    main rule here is to HAVE FUN!!!!!

    Fabric: All fabrics used should be 100% cotton, very nice quality quilt appropriate fabrics. No flimsy fabrics, please. FABRICS MUST BE PREWASHED PRIOR TO USING. <---please don't let this stop you from signing up.

    Colors: Awareness Ribbon Colors Listed Below

    How this works:

    *Each person chooses one of the Awareness Ribbon Colors for their blocks from the list below.

    *Background color is to be light. It may be in the same color family of as the ribbon as long as it is much lighter so that the Ribbon itself "pops" off the background.

    *Fabrics must be 100% cotton and pre-washed to avoid shrinkage.

    *You must be 18 yrs. old or older to participate in this swap.

    Sign Up Deadline: December 1, 2011

    Due to me: February 1, 2012 Blocks will be swapped and mailed out asap after all are received. I will only wait 5 days for stragglers.

    Mailing: When you mail your blocks to me, be sure to INCLUDE INSIDE a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope) with your address in both the From and To slots with the EXACT same amount of postage as it costs you to send them to me. If your packages do not have the appropriate postage, I will "return to sender". Blocks and SASE should be able to fit in a small Flat Rate Priority Mail Envelope--I believe the stamp is $4.95. Be sure to get 2 stamps. 1 for sending to me. 1 for sending back to you. (2 sets will easily fit)

    Please post here if you would like to join. As well as posting here, please PM me with your email addy, so I can keep the addy information for this swap.

    Enjoy!!!

    I have my first set of blocks finished, I hope more join soon. I always look forward to making these blocks. This years is much easier than the feather blocks we did last year. It takes me 15 minutes per block to sew. I will post a picture soon!

    Kim if we don't have anymore folks join us here, I'm going to post over at QuiltingBoard.com. I'm sure we could get a couple more folks from over there.

    I've been working on mine now that Christmas is past. All of the pieces are cut out and I have started to applique. I am using sewable fusing and sewing the edges with a blanket stitch. I signed up a while ago but haven't been following the progress on line. I regret that now because I wouldhave signed up for a second color. I don't think I would have time now.

    Dear Coyote, mine are in the works. This is a pretty block! I'm including a square for the reverse. I didn't know if that was in the plan, but if not, you keep them. You are more into doing this social stuff than me and you certainly deserve a little bonus. xoxo Caroline
