 Vintage Christmas

Book & Block Patterns by Lori Holt

Fabric line shown below is Cozy Christmas by Riley Blake

 

 

 

* fabrics
We are using 30s Christmas reproduction prints that would blend in with the fabric line 'cozy christmas'.  You do not have to use that fabric but it needs to work with that line so we end up with a SIMILAR looking quilt. Your fabrics may be complemented by bright geomectric 30s prints.  (In looking at the quilts and fabric lines, none have Spring flowers or other non-christmas novelty items )

All blocks with white backgrounds are to be Kona white.  As with all swaps, fabric must be quilt-shop-quality, pre-washed!  We're using bright fabrics with white, and we sure don't want anything to bleed.

The blocks with green backgrounds are to be made with Sweet Mint by RBlake.  Optional but the solid brown used is RBlake's NUTMEG if you love the way it looks and want to use it. 
If you must have this exact quilt, you might consider buying a KIT instead of swapping. 

* What we are swapping:

One 12-inch block (12.5 unfinished) per baggy from the Lori Holt book.  You may sign up as many times as you want to make and receive more blocks but you must choose a different pattern for each group. We will be swapping christmas themed patterns found in the book.   

Everyone can make the traditional patterns as they see fit ( she may show a dutchman's puzzle but you might want to make a churn dash or saw tooth star for your quilt )

We will open in 2 groups of 8 swappers/patterns and when you select a pattern, please make sure no one else has claimed that pattern.  ( make 8, send in 7 )  Do not start sewing until a group is FULL.   In the first round of christmas blocks in the 6" size, we ended up swapping 3 groups.        

* Mailing blocks:

Carefully place your swap blocks in individual baggies.  Label all baggies with your name/screen name. I'll need your group number from the swap chart, too.  Place your individual baggies in one large labeled baggy before packing into your shipping envelope.  Include a pre-addressed, pre-stamped return envelope with your blocks, or send a $8.00 check or Paypal to me and I will provide a padded flat rate envelope.   IF you need my address, request it in your PM to sign up.  Many of you already have it so I don't want to reply with it if not needed. 

 

* Who can swap:

This swap is open to all members who welcome a challenge.  Lori's piecing instructions are very good, but most of the patterns involve a lot of pieces, many of which are quite small.  You SHOULD make a test block to see if yours comes out to the correct size before you sign up. You could also send one sample block to the host early on for comments/suggestions if a little help is desired.

For block patterns, you will need a copy of the book or you can purchase some block patterns individually from Fat Quarter Shop.

All swappers must have read and agreed to SWAPPING GUIDELINES.  

* Dates of swap:

Sign ups: Sept 10 - Sept 28th.   I am giving a bit of extra time in the sign ups so that you have time to order fabrics and book if needed.   BUT signups CLOSE as soon as the 3rd group if filled. 
Sewing time: Sept -  Nov 4th.  That's six+ weeks to allow enough time for precision sewing and the opportunity to make more than one block design if desired.  Don't wait until the last minute to start!  Your package must be postmarked no later than Monday, 11/04. (one week earlier for international)

To sign-up, post your intent to join in the discussion here and send me a PM   Include your name, your QATW nickname, both email and mailing addresses, and telephone number. Please indicate which block(s) you wish to make. 

Video showing projects in her book. 9 pillows, place mats, table runners, mug rugs and 20 quilts. Also a bit of about the fabrics and panels.

What a lovely swap, so sad I don't have any of the requested fabrics and even if ordering will take more time for them to arrive than the time to begin sewing :) but I will buy the book now that I saw its on sale. Thank you for the tip!

It is too soon for me to tell, I don't have a book or fabric yet.  I have never make one of these blocks so I don't know how quick they go together.  But, I will join group 3 if I have time enough to make them.

I am thinking of joining this swap too I just would really like to finish the swap I am currently in.  Do we still have two weeks to make up our minds on this one?  I should know by Friday.
