modern siggy swap round #2

Monday, May 10, 2010
it's time for round #2 of the modern siggy swap!
{ a big thanks to karrielyne for making her blocks! }






edit
for those of you not using pre-cut fabric strips
the white is 2 1/2" strips
and the colors are 1 1/2" strips
to make 101 blocks you'll need
a yard of white - 30" to be exact
and a bit over a yard of modern fabric.. b/c you need 36" exact
and you'll make 12 strip sets which will yield 108 blocks



note
you don't have to use the same fabric on both sides of your block... but if you use 2 different fabrics.. like karrielyne did... make sure they are similar and in a finished quilt will still "read" as one block



the details

fabrics
{ same as round #1... info right from rachel's post }

in this version of the siggy swap we'll be using fresh, modern fabrics.

some fresh, modern fabrics would included any of the following designers:
kate spain, heather bailey, anna maria horner, tula pink,
amy butler, lila tueller, joel dewberry, paula prass, patty young
denyse schmidt, sandi henderson, erin mcmorris, tina givens
basic grey, momo, & chez moi.
just to name a few. lol.

if you have a question about a certain fabric, just ask.


blocks
plan on making 101
{if the last signups are any indication}
if we have less than 100 i'll let you know.
if we have more.. we will have more than one group.


guidelines
{ same as round #1... info right from rachel's post }
you must follow my siggy block tutorial.
you must use quilt shop quality fabrics.
you must use a white fabric as your block centers. not cream.
you must handwrite your signature. not machine stitch it.


mailing your blocks
as noted above.. we may have more than one group.
so wait till you are told where to mail your blocks.
but this will be centralized.. and you'll be sending your blocks to me.. or another swap parent.
when you do send your blocks.
please put them in a plastic bag & include a SASE with your package.
and please please put enough postage on your original package


deadlines
you have until july 1st to send your completed blocks
so plenty of time... but don't wait till the last minute to make them!



communication
all info will be in the flickr group
so make sure you join it!!

questions?
ask me or karrielyne

signups will be open until this weekend.



or we reach a few hundred and can't take any more!




to enter fill out the form below... please use the form instead of sending an e-mail!

once you submit the form.. leave a comment so everyone else can see who is in!

signups are now closed!

i signed up! so - are we are making straight blocks (like in photo), or diagonal blocks(like in rachel's tute)? either way, looks fun!

D-Carlton said...

I'm in! Loved the first one, can't wait for the second one.

jenj said...

Is this open to people outside the US? I'm in Canada and would love to participate, but I can't provide a SASE since I don't have access to US postage. I can Paypal money to someone though...

twinkid said...

mandylifeboats said...

As long as your spreadsheet doesn't lie, I'm in! And excited -- thanks for a new block; looks like a quick sew...nothing wrong with that.

Genevieve said...

yay, I'm in. I think.

Tracey said...

Yay! Another excuse to buy fabric!

Crafty Maine Mom said...

I filled out that form. The tutorial is a little hard to understand. I think a honey bun is 1 1/2 inches wide and a jelly roll is 2 1/2 inches. Is that correct? If I'm not using a honey bun or a jelly roll then I will need 1 yard of modern fabric and 1 yard of white Kona to make 100 siggies?

teresamnj said...

Love this new block layout! Hope I made it in time. I think I'm going to combine the blocks from Rachel's swap and this one into one quilt!

kelliemorgan said...

I'm in. . . quick question. According to your tutorial on Moda Bake Shop, one HB puts out 97 blocks. How about making each group 97 people? Will that work for the final product? Just a thought?

holly k said...

In!

I'm in and ready to get started
