Hi Fellow Groupies:
I have volunteered to host a Lottery Block Swap. This swap is different every month. We decide what the “theme” will be every month, what size block, etc. and then you sign up, make a block and send it to me, with a postage stamp included to help defray the cost of postage. At the end of the month, we have a drawing and whoever wins the drawing, wins all the blocks from that month. In other words, depending on the size of the block and how many people send in blocks, you might have a quilt top ready to be sewn together, if you win. Now, I could decide the themes, block sizes, colors, etc. of each block, but I would rather you all take part in the decision making. So, first off, how many would be interested in this kind of swap? What would be your ideas on themes for each month; size of blocks; colors?
Here is what I was thinking for some theme ideas: January – snowflakes; February – hearts; March – green; April – spring colors; May – flowers; June – summer colors; July – patriotic; August – beachy; September – fall; October – Halloween; November – Thanksgiving; and December – Holiday. I think the blocks should be 12″ to start and then we could decide on if we want to make them bigger or smaller.
So, let’s hear from you. This swap would begin in January, 2012 and continue for the whole year. Whadda ya think?
