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

if your block needs to be resized here is a cheat sheet



This is a site that I go to, to get an idea of what the State Blocks look like.

This site may have your State already sized.

I am just now researching quilting and just happened to come across this thread.
May I ask:

If I were to participate, I would make a "state block" and send it to you and you would then return someone else's state block to me?

HI,

How the swaps work, you would in this case pick a state to make 12 blocks then you send me all 12 blocks and you get back 12 blocks 11 being from other swappers, so you have 12 different blocks. All instructions requirements are in the first post. I hope you join us, we have a lot of fun.

Oh I understand now. Thank you!
I just got a sewing machine and am still playing around with it.
I love this idea, but I am not ready to join JUST yet.
Hopefully the next one!

I'll keep in touch with you for the next one, i got some practicing to do!
Thanks again.

Ok. I'll join. I was tempted to take Washington so the whole West Coast is represented, but that block looks HARD!

I'll take Nebraska.
