After reading about Kathy participating in a Bow tie block swap last year, I decided to jump in and join this year's swap at Fun with Barb. Barb actually is running two swaps--both with 4" finished broken dishes blocks. I joined up for the modern swap using solids (red and another colour of my choosing) and Christine signed up for the Civil War swap. Barb was hoping that 40 people would sign up for each swap but only 30 signed up for the Modern swap. (I think 40 signed up for the civil war swap.) The instructions soon arrived by e-mail. I needed to make 60 blocks--30 in each of two colours with the constant red. (Christine needs to make 80 blocks--in a way, I am happy I only needed to make 60!)
Christine and I will be mailing our blocks together so I will put mine in a bag, ready to go, and wait for her to get her civil war blocks made.
