Scrappy Christmas Block Swap Details

I've sent this to all the participants, but in case you haven't received it, here it is again. I still don't have email addresses for:

Lee Ann
Bridgid
Jo
Celeste
Jeanette
Ginny
Humming Cat

Also, emails to Huskerbabe keep being returned to me. I might have your email wrong, although it matches your blogger profile address....

Please check your spam folders -- I sent this email to over 100 people so your email client might think it's junk!

Thank you so much for joining the Scrappy Christmas Block Swap! We have 102 participants, so it’s been a bit overwhelming but I think this is going to be a great swap.

You’ll need to construct your blocks using the tutorial at Oh, Fransson! (http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/2009/06/how-to-make-scrappy-hedgerow-blocks.html) The blocks do not have to be completely constructed of Christmas fabric, but should focus on Christmas. For instance, the center square and one layer of logs might be Christmas fabrics, but the rest might be your favorite dots, stripes, and patterns. After all, the goal is to make a scrappy Christmas quilt! Please make sure your blocks are 12.5” square before you mail so that everyone’s blocks finish to 12” square.

I need each of you to send me your full name, mailing address, and let me know if you absolutely cannot send internationally. Everyone will be put into a group with three other participants, and you will send 2 blocks to each of the members of your group. Those of you who requested to make and receive 12 blocks will be assigned two groups.

As I receive your information I will add you to my sidebar with the number of blocks you’ve requested. Please let me know if you’d like me to link to your blog or website by including the URL in your email back to me.

modernjax [at] gmail [dot] com

The deadline for mailing is September 1. I will continue to post inspirational projects that you might use your blocks to create. Also, feel free to use the swap badge I’ve posted here or from Flickr, and post your progress in our Flickr group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1190183@N21/


Thanks for all the offers of charity blocks. It seems we might be able to make quite a few quilts (and tree skirts, etc). Molly has volunteered to quilt one of the quilts, and my mom has volunteered to help me assemble. If you’d be willing to quilt or bind, let me know!
