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

2014 Challenge

Sue set a challenge in January to make something with blocks received in a swap from QBSA. Well it's taken a while from collecting the blocks to deciding what to do with them.... but a decision was made....

Then the next challenge was how to put them together ... so after many hours of deliberation (with input from each family member)..... I finally made my mind up..... 

I made a wall hanging for our bedroom (just need DH to put some hooks up for me and then I can take a proper photo), 4 blankets of love for Cheryll (I sent these in February) and a table runner for our dining table. 

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to these (sorry I really can't remember who they are all from but I received them in 2012 and 2013).









I'm going to make some more blankets of love in "boy" colours and then to start on the 2014 Challenge over at Christmas Quilting block swap Australia...
