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 quiltingblocks@hotmail.com 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

PATTERN SWAP REMINDER

A NEW trial swap will take place in March and run in conjunction with the regular swap.  Its a PATTERN swap.  So far I only have 4 members wanting to take part in this so please comment if you think you would like to trial it to.

How it will work is your partner for your 12 inch block in March will also be your PATTERN SWAP partner.  Simply send them a pre-loved quilting pattern with their block and they will send you one of theirs.

I am thinking of having the pattern swap run quarterly and will theme it with the seasons.  IE for March we may trade a pre-loved Autumn inspired pattern, such as a wall hanging, table runner or bag. 

Sounds like fun !!  just pop a comment on this post if you are keen to give it a try

Hi Sue,

Not sure what is meant by a pattern swap - is this something we design ourselves? a block? a quilt? anyway, sounds like something I would like to try, so please count me in. I love to design.

Cheers,
Karen.
