IBS2 - The Rules

IBS2 - The Rules

Please note that this activity has ended!

The deadline was 31 December 2013 - so please don't send any blocks as we would have to send them back to you!


 

The rules for our 2nd International Block Swap were the following:

  • Sew 9 identical RECTANGULAR blocks 6" x 18" or 15 cm x 45 cm plus a seam allowance of 1/4“ or 0.75 cm on each side.
  • The predominant colour MUST be BLUE (ie more than 50% of the surface should be blue). More colours MAY be used. Please use only good quality, prewashed cotton fabric.
  • You may use any textile technique or any block pattern. If you use embellishments, please make sure that these don‘t exceed a depth of 1/4" or 0.5 cm and that the block can still be quilted.
  • Please enclose 9 picture postcards of your town/region/country in your block package. You may use the postcard to convey as much information about yourself as you wish (eg hobbies, family, e-mail and/or mail address etc.).

Deadline: 31 December 2013

We will send out the swapped blocks in January 2014.

Unfortunately, blocks which don‘t comply with these rules, cannot be included in IBS2 and will be returned. In this case, we will not be able to refund the registration fee.
