What to Swap
You'll be swapping 2 x 6.5" House Quilt Blocks with 3 partners. This means you will need to make 6 blocks to swap and you will receive 6 blocks in return.
The blocks will have a white background. Any white will do but it must be as white as possible - Kona White is a good one to use. If you're in doubt contact your partners to check with them about the fabric you're wanting to use.
The block measures 6.5" with at least 1" border of negative space around your house and any other items you've included in the block.
The house is to be no taller than 4" tall. The house can be no wider than 4.5" wide. You can use all the space within the 4.5" square to make your house and add anything to it that you like - for example trees or fussy cut embellishments.
Please do not use beads, embroidery or any other form of embellishment on the quilt unless you have contacted your swap partner and asked if they would be ok with it.
Give unto Others
It should go without saying, but just so we're clear: only swap material that you would be happy to receive and use in a quilt yourself. This means swapping quilting quality material (preferably cotton). Using a mix of pattern and colour that you think your partner would like. (Obviously this one is a little subjective, so again if you'd be happy to use it swap it - if in doubt probably best to either contact the person you're swapping with to see if they'd like it or maybe keep it for yourself (and your own house quilt!).)
Communication is Key
I understand that life sometimes throws you a curve ball and means that you can't always do what you would like, so if for any reason you have to pull out of the swap just drop me (and if you're so inclined) your partners an email to let me know and we'll work around it. The more warning you can give the better so that I can redirect packages, etc.
Time is Money
Please post your House Quilt Blocks to your swap partner by the postage date specified. If you're anything like me just knowing that something is coming in the mail is uber exciting, so it would be great if all our packages arrive around the same time so that we can all celebrate together.
Ultimately a swap like this is only as good as what you put in to it so please remember to treat everyone as you would expect to be treated. Chances are if you shaft someone today, you'll be shafted tomorrow. Questions
If you have any questions at all please let me know.
