    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.

    Due April 15th. Quilt Swap
    It’s time to sign up for the next BYC quilt block swap! Woo Hoo!!
    Let's do a disappearing nine patch. Colors are violets,light purples,med purples and greens with a light creamy yellow for the center block.


    Block color placement is as follows: row one: purple green purple, row two: green, cream, green, row three: purple green purple
    so the purple will be at the four corners and the greens will be in between the purples and the creamy yellow will be in the middle.
    The square's are cut at 5" or you can use a charm pack precut.

    The tutorial for this block can be found at the following link.





    You will not cut the 9 patch, the block cutting will be done by you when you receive your blocks, just sew the individual squares together


    We will need to make 24 blocks. Due date will be April 15th.
    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 at once.
    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

    Is everyone going to use a different material for each square? I saw a pattern that used just three colors and it was very pretty, but not sure if that would look good with these colors. Im really just thinking out loud. I probably won't know util i go shopping for my material.
