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

Calling all swappers

Our sister group 6 inch block swaps is in danger of extinction, which will be a very sad affair.  With a recent bout of resignations we are down to 12 members in this group now, and if membership gets much less than this it wont be a viable swap to run.
So, if you are thinking about having some mid month fun, why not join us.
Swap partners are sent out in the middle of the month and we make each other two little blocks each measuring 6.5 inches raw edge to raw edge.
Its a great way to use up all of those little scraps, and just look at some of the quilts and blocks you can make with the versatile 6 inch block

You can mix them up in a quilt with your 12 inch blocks as this one below

Or make a cute quilt all from the 6 inch blocks

February partners have just been allocated but it would be lovely to see some new faces joining us next month for the March swap.  Just email me with your choices and colours if you want to join.  Sue, swap co coordinator.
