siggy this & siggy that.

18 November 2009

hi-5!!! i did it.
i finished all 70 of my signature blocks!!!
{these are for the repro signature block swap.}

so here's what i want to talk to yall about...
i'm considering hosting a modernistic siggy swap.
{this will be after the holidays...to kick off the new year.}

i'm projecting this will be a swap with fabrics from designers like:
kate spain, tula pink, lila tueller
amy butler, patty young, anna maria horner
denyse schmidt & heather bailey.
{just to name a few.}

a few guidelines as of now:
the swap will be centralized.
international peeps are welcome.
a tutorial will be posted on my blog for the blocks to be made from.
{i am also going to mock up a setting pattern for our blocks.}
everyone will HAVE to use quilt shop quality fabrics.
we will communicate via flickr.
& a charity quilt will be donated!!!

i'm ONLY gauging interest now just so i know what to expect.
so let me know if yall are interested.

please note:
saying you are interested now does not automatically commit you to the swap.
there will be official sign ups after the new year.

oh and don't forget about my giveaway!!!
the prizes are AMAZING!!!
promise.

Pin It!

Jo said...

Rachel,

I'm in the civil war siggie, and would love to do the modern one, too. One thought came to mind as I was signing the current blocks - it would be cool to have the blog addy of the swappers on the blocks.

jess said...

Sounds like fun! Although I have a basket full of quilt shop fabrics, some people may not be able to afford them. What about a pre-swap/ donation pool of fabric for those folks? You KNOW I love ya, just an idea... :)

Lexilooo said...

I'd be curious to know more about this potential swap and how difficult the block design would be. I am a beginning quilter, but could use the practice. Of course, I don't want anyone to be offended by my newness :)

House of Mouse said...

Deb said...

Yes, I would be interested. I'm glad you re-mentioned something about this on a current post because I missed this on bloglines for some reason! Thanks!

Shari said...

How did I miss this posting the first go around? Because if I would have seen it, I would have said "YES!". Count me in please. Love the fabric designers mentioned--so many fantastic fabric lines out right now.

Does everyone use the same fabric for the signature bar? Or is it meant to be more scrappy in appearance? I'll admit the only ones I've seen are uniform.

What a fun project to look forward to in 2010!

Marianne said...
