How to JOIN quilting block swaps Australia

Hello and thank you for visiting. This is a community group for all Australian quilters to join or just follow. Membership is FREE and you are partnered each month and we make each other a 12 inch quilt block based on our preferences which we swap. (12.5 inches raw edge to raw edge) The emphasis of the group is on friendship and sharing. To find out more or register to join email me on This purpose of this blog is to chat and showcase blocks and quilts made by members, kind of like a show and tell . Yours in stitching, Sue

and to welcome our 50th Member to Quilting Blocks Swaps Australia,  Heather from Canada.

Now, as previously mentioned I was capping the membership at 50 as its hard work keeping up with all the swaps, emails blogs etc.  However the lovely Alex has offered to run a sister swap in conjunction with my main swap, similar to Crafty Pugs running the Christmas swap.  The only catch is if you are a member of group one (my group) you cannot also be a member of group 2 (for now).

So, how it will work is that Alex will design a blog that will link to the master blog with a button.  All new members will be redirected to join group 2.  When this group gets to a reasonable size we will then start switching some of the longer standing members from group one into group two so you can get to swap with members from that group as well. 

So keep tuned for the release of the new group and join me in congratulating and welcoming Alex as the new groups co-ordinator.

Quilted hugs, Sue xx
