A couple of months ago (I think) I posted about wanting to make a quilt using the Chimney Sweep block. Thanks to some wonderful blog friends, I was able to track down the pattern and even get my hands on a PDF file with really simple instructions.
Anyone want to swap? The block measures 10-1/2 inches unfinished.
Each person would be responsible for making 12 blocks.
I'm seeing this done with Civil War fabrics.... and maybe another swap using 1930's reproduction fabrics. To be consistent, the background will be Kona Cotton natural. You decide which you want to do and let me know either in a comment on this post or email me privately using the address given in my profile. If you want to do both, that's fine.
This is not a signature swap (not enough interest).
I must be able to link to your blog. If you post anonymously or no-reply I cannot add you to the list of swappers. Please make sure I can email you!! :o)
If you are interested, let me know and I will email you more detailed instructions and the PDF file. Sign-up deadline is April 15, 2010
Blocks are due August 15, 2010. Remember, swapping is a commitment.... if you can't make twelve blocks in 3 months (allowing for mailing time) don't sign up. Nothing leaves a bitter taste in a quilter's mouth quite like a swapper than doesn't follow through. However, we all understand that life happens... if you need to drop out, let me know ASAP.
