Civil War Friendship Block Swap


I am now taking sign-ups for the civil war block swap! I decided to do the square/30s fabric one this summer,as it has a "light summery" feel to it! :) When you can't decide between the two-do both!

So here are the details. There will be 19 swappers...I am the 20th. Signups will begin today and end once 19 have signed up. Here is what you do:
1. Email me your email address tlhcrawford@aol.com
2. Make 20 of the blocks. Send me all 20 (yes-you will get back one of your own)by March 1st. I must have them by March 1st. Place all your squares in a ziplock baggie that has your mailing label on it. Also send a self-addressed stamped mailer for the return squares. It should be in the same amount that you mail to me. Once I have all the squares I will mail them out.
3. FABRIC REQUIREMENTS: The inside signature square is to be made from Moda Bella Natural. (The Fat Quarter shop carries this as do several ebay sellers) The triangle portions are to be made from civil war fabrics. The signature should be made from a thin black micron type pen. When signing your squares,the triangles should be in the upper left and lower right. Sign your name on the first line and your state and country on the second line.
4. I will post a tutorial for the square. It is a very easy square! You can make them all the same,or all different!

Any questions? Email me! tlhcrawford@aol.com
