Skeletons in your closet?

I am hosting a swap on It is called "MORE SKELETONS IN YOUR CLOSET"
We believe it is a "HAUNTED" swap because some can access things where others can and it changes constantly.I am posting the guide lines here just in case.


You asked for it and here it is. Its time to gather all those terrific Halloween fabrics you have in your stash and join us in making blocks for a  Halloween quilt.  We will be making a simple version of the attic windows block to showcase all those great Halloween prints.

FABRIC REQUIREMENTS:  pre-washed, good quality 100% cotton.   We will be using Halloween prints as our focus fabric and a solid BLACK fabric such as Kona Black for the two (2) border strips.  Please do not use any fabric that is too thin or see through. As always, please be considerate of those swappers who are allergic to smoke, perfume, or pets.


The blocks will measure 6” finished  (6 ½” unfinished). 
The cuts for one block:
Halloween print:  One (1) 5-inch square 
Black fabric:  One (1) 2 X 5-inch strip and one (1) 2 X 6-1/2-inch strip
To assemble the block:
Join the 5-inch-long strip along the right-hand side of the square;
Then join the 6-1/2-inch-long strip along the bottom.
Please do not trim your blocks.
Please take care to center any figures in your Halloween print so that part of the motif is not cut off.  Even though it is Halloween, we don’t want any headless horsemen.
Note:  When cutting my black fabric, I added 1/8”   as extra insurance.
Barbara (BarbaraSews) used this block in her 18th Scrappy Swap.  I want to thank her for the instructions even though she hasn’t been here in a while.
Please place a label with your name and forum name on the back of each block.

Maximum number of blocks you may swap:  48
Maximum number of blocks from a single focus fabric: 8

Enclose a stamped (the equal amount of stamps used to mail them to me) self addressed envelope.  No meter mail.

Please email me you name, address and Forum name. I will email my address.

Everyone is more than welcomed to check it out and join if you would like. You need to be a member of to join.
