Must be a member of Yahoo Hittygirls group
and have met all previous swap commitments to play.
New Members are welcome to join us in this swap.

You must include your full name, address, telephone number, and email.
If you sign up without this info, you will not be able to play.

except to the Swap Leader and your Swap Partner.

This is a 'complete the swap and get a partner on the due date' swap.

CLOSED
Let your swap leader know
when you are done.

Why? Because if we don't know you are done,
we can't assign you a partner when the time comes.
There will be numerous messages posted to the Hittygirls
list with updates for this swap. Read them, and make
sure your info is there.

Deadline for receiving partner: September 20th

Please include either $1.00 to cover cost of mailing back,
OR
2 extra strips for me, and I'll pay your postage!

The squares are not meant to be sewn together
as squares, since they are bigger than our last swap.
Instead, make different patterns!

Here's a list of possible quilts blocks to try:
Pinwheel
Broken Dishes
Flying Geese
Snowball
and more!

 

FIRST!

You cut 5 strips of different fabrics, measuring 21" x 2 1/2".
These fabrics should be 100% cotton, and not too thin.
At least three can--but do not have to--be solids.

You mail them to me here:

Julie DeGroat
42300 new Connecticut Rd

Theresa, NY 13691

SECOND

I take each of the strips, and cut them into 8--2 1/2" x 2 1/2" squares.
Since you are sending 5 strips, you will get back 40--2 1/2" squares
and if all goes right--no two will be the same!
(If all does not go right, there may be some repeats.)

I will swap out the squares until you have 40 different squares,
and mail them back to you.

THIRD

You will make two charm quilts. One is for you to keep,
and one is for you to send to your Swap Partner.

The remainder of the squares are for
you to make more quilts,
pillows, or whatever you want for your Hittys!
Even better...practice your PIf-ing!

Have fun and remember to send a picture for this page!

 

Have fun!
