    Talking Christmas Star Block Swap 2010

    You asked for it - you got it!!

    I set up a new group for the Christmas Star Block Swap
    We will be making the jelly roll star block (featured in the msqc tutorials). SUPER QUICK and SUPER EASY following Jenny's awesome instructions!!!!

    Everyone will make twice the equal number of blocks to swappers signed up by Oct 15th (10 swappers = 20 blocks ....)

    Half of your blocks will be with the star a WHITE FOCUS - - Background will be CHRISTMAS NOVELTY PRINT
    Other half of blocks will be the reverse - Christmas novelty print star with White focus background

    mailing date will be Nov 1 which gives lots of time to start now and make a couple blocks at a time. Use your stash! .......... and get new for this years other projects

    I hope we have lots of players and make some really pretty scrappy Christmas Star Quilts!!

    hugs, Suzi

    Are we sticking to the red/green colour scheme for our blocks or does anything go?

    Hi lynn,
    anything Christmas Novelty goes as long as you use WHITE FOCUS for the star on your first block and for the background on the second (reversed) block. ....... i have some really cute blue and even a purple i will be using.

    hugs, Suzi

    Thanks!!

    Suzi, thanks so much for all you are doing for these swaps! I had several questions and your sample blocks you posted pretty much answered every question I had.
    I am trying to get up the courage to join in this swap, even have fabrics picked out of my stash.
    But, I am going to stitch out a sample block and see how I do with it before signing up. Oh, and watch Jenny's video a few MORE times. LOL LOL
    I have never done a swap before, but it seems like it would be sooooo much fun. I just finished reading ALL of the posts on the swap you all just finished and all I can say is WOW oh WOW.
