EFA Roundrobin -Join in!

Round Robin for EFA TEAM!!! Organised by Dogonwear Make a quilt block - no don't be scared ANYONE can be involved.

Here's what Gena has to say :-

This quilt will be very special, because everyone will have had a hand in it.

Each member who chooses to get involved will have 4 weeks to complete one 12" + 2"border quilt block. This quilt's them is "EFA" so each Block will be fashioned that way…
the letters E F A doesn't matter how you do it,be as creative as you would like on your 12" block but please keep the borders clear for adjoining to the next block.This quilt's color scheme is "Bold" so please think "Bold" when
choosing fabrics from your stash to use.I'll say it again, it's your block, get as creative as you would like as long as the Letters "EFA" appear within your 12"

On the bottom of your side of your block, in the border area, only the top inch portion, please include your name, and your Etsy Shop address. Again, get creative, you can use iron-on lettering, beads, embroidery, appliqué,fabric paint, whatever you choose to use please make sure it will hold up with the many years of love this quilt will bring to the person who purchases it. On the back side of the block please include the charity you choose to support through your shop and your Etsy store address . Please be sure to
stay off the border section on the back side.

When your block is mailed it must be completed, it must be quilted and squared and ready to be assembled into the quilt. (P.S. if you don't know how or don't like to quilt you may be able to network a friend within the group to help you, teach you, or maybe complete that portion for you)

All blocks will be mailed back to Dogonwear aka Gena, then it will be assembled into the final quilt and be posted in the blog for all of us to see. Also it is up to each individual to take photos of their block for the blog… A special page will be erected (as soon as I fined help with it…LOL) for the quilt blocks to be shown as they are completed. It should be lots of fun to see them show up on line and then see your block combined into the quilt.

The Quilt will be sold to generate $ for promotional items for the EFA team. Of course with a hefty price due to all of our famous signatures as prized #1, fabulously creative world-renowned Artist.

Please represent your talents, draw, and paint, sew, express yourself but please make sure it is permanent. Depending on the amount of Blocks we receive will determine the final size of the quilt or # of quilts!

12" Block means it should be 12" in length and width, making a perfect square. Then add a 2" border all the way around. Add batting and a backing… please leave enough batting to run to the edges on all sides border ( so cut the batting at 14") Do not quilt the Border! Just add your name and shop addy in the bottom top inch portion (this means you have a 12"x1" Space to use. Be sure to leave the bottom inch loose for adjoining .
to the next block.

These Blocks are special – you may want to get a tracking number I will send each of you a convo in Etsy to let you know it has been received
