    Another question, you make the required number of blocks, I understand. Are all the blocks that one person makes all the same?

    Hi NQ
    yes all the blocks you will be making will be the same block pattern of your choice. (15 players = 15 blocks for example - that actual number will be determined on March 20 when sign up for this swap closes)
    After you have completed 1 block for each player in the swap including yourself you will then mail them to me - i am the hostess - my address for mailing will be posted in the group discussions - along with a stamped return addressed envelope.
    Once I have recvd everyones blocks - around the end of June for this swap - i trade them around so you will get 1 from each other player (they will all be different - like in the summer block swap from last summer) and I mail them back to you in the envelope you provided.......
    FUN and Easy! and a great way to make new quilty lady friends!!
    I hope you will play

    ALSO - for those of you "thinking about it" - please jump in!!
    There are No Quilt Police in our groups so every level of quilter is WELCOME to play!
    Swaps are a fun way to learn how to create a new block or just sharpen a skill and meet some new friends. We welcome stash busting!! great way to swap older fabrics that no one else will have! (LOVE THAT!!)
    The resulting quilt will be one you will forever cherish and always talk about and say "I made that one with my Quilty Lady Friends on the Missouri Star Quilt Co forum" !
    See YOU in the group

    Not having much stash, I waited until I went to the quilt show in NJ yesterday to sign up. Found an animal print I'm happy with and now thinking about how to use it. Have a couple of ideas.

    OK, I'm in. I found some fabric today. I found some really cute stuff yesterday, but it wasn't "skin/hide/hair print". I just had wild animals all over it. Cute enough that I may go back and get some for me if I find some extra cash!

    The other thing that can be done if these swaps get to big is to put a size limit per group, and then have multiple groups. You would have to be looking at over 25 swappers for that most likely.

    HI-

    I have never done a swap before! This could be very interesting.. Should the animal fabric be more adult themed or is anyone using kid type wild animal fabrics? I will have to go looking but wanted to know before I bought anything. Any particular size you prefer? I will get back and sign up within a few days. Thank you!
