    CoyoteMagic RIP ?-2014

    This swap is based on the 12 1/2inch Chicken blocks at http://www.fatcatpatterns.com/chickens.htm

    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: Your choice though most of the swappers don't seem to care for goth

    Block Pattern: Choose one of the 12 1/2 inch chicken blocks from http://www.fatcatpatterns.com/chickens.htm

    Number of blocks: This will depend on how many sign up but not more than 12.

    Sign Up Deadline: March 1, 2010.
    Blocks due to me: May 30, 2010. 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".


    ETA----Blocks and SASE should be able to fit in a small flat rate Priorty 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.

    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.

    If I missed anything, please feel free to slap me...um...I mean ask me!!! (this is Acres line not mine, lol)

    Enjoy!!!

    Eggbert please.

    Want to be sure on a few things:

    A white or cream background correct?

    Machine applique is ok?

    Quote:Gotcha. Machine applique is fine! hmmmmm I think any solid background that will make your chicken "Pop" will be fine.
