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

June swaps allocated

Hi lovely QBSA members,  you should have an email from me with your partner for the June swap sitting in your inbox.  Please remember to email your member to say hi and confirm details before making their block.

By now you should have completed your swap for May and have it ready to post (if you have not already done so). If you are running behind now is the time to drop your member a line and let them know when they can expect it.

We have a whopping 77 members now with 10 newbies thanks to the article in Quilters companion magazine in May.  This is the biggest our group has ever been and there is still room for more, so if you are reading this and thinking of joining better be quick.

We have two double swap queens this month.  A big thank you to Melody doing a double swap in the Beginners group and to Amira for doing a double swap in the Intermediate group (due to an odd number of swaps).  I am also extremely grateful to have quite a number of other ladies on stand by for a double swap this month if we get any more new members join after the partnership allocation today

Just so you know, for interest sake, if someone joins up past the middle of the month I do ask them to wait for the next partnership run rather than give members only 2 weeks to get their blocks made.
So double swap ladies on stand by, you may hear from me again in the next two weeks.

Happy sewing everyone, and I look forward to seeing an amazing array of quilt blocks being displayed on the blog.
