Want to join a block swap...on Facebook?

The next three posts (one Monday, one Tuesday & one Wednesday) are the directions for the next three Facebook Quilt Block Swap Group's swap blocks.  We swap blocks in sets of FIVE- you send five blocks & get five blocks sent by other swappers back.  You can make as many sets of five as you like, joining only those swaps that interest you.  We also collect 6TH BLOCKS, that is a block in addition to the five, that goes to one of the group who makes a community project type quilt.  There is a little more to it than that, actually, & you can find all the details on the group page.  Lastly, you also need to include a self addressed, stamped envelope to return your blocks to you.  Envelopes with insufficient postage will take a very very long time to get back to you so the best idea is to use the same size & weight of envelope you sent your blocks in & affix the same postage.

If you are not currently part of the swap group, but you are interested in joining our swap group, you are very very welcome BUT it would make my life A LOT easier if you joined the group through Facebook.   Log into Facebook, search "quilt block swap" & find the Quilt Block Swap Group.  There will be a picture of the current block as the profile photo.  Ask to join & you should be approved within a day or two.

If you are not on Facebook, but still interested in swapping & just need the mailing address, leave a comment with your e-mail address & I will send you that information but be warned:  I really cannot do trouble-shooting, take future block suggestions, handle requests to receive 6th blocks, etc. via individual e-mail messages. 

The blocks & their deadlines are:

Patriotic Tossed  Nines - Saturday, February 27, 2010
Sunny Floral Lanes - Saturday, April 24, 2010
Baby Snowballs - Saturday, June 26, 2010

Blocks are swapped on Sunday & brought to the Post Office on Monday.

Results from our first swap in February 2009 can be seen here.
