Block Swaps

Throughout the year, various swaps will be done for sewn blocks. This often requires participants to make a specific number of the same type of block, which are then sorted & distributed so that each member of the swap has several unique blocks with which to turn into a project.

Currently our Block Swaps are still occurring, via mask-wearing, socially-distanced parking lot exchanges, while COVID-19 is a threat. Exchanges at the meetings will resume when our in-person meetings resume.

Block Swap: Block Lotto

We will be doing a block lotto in March/April. It will be using scrappy low volume background and colors to make plus sign blocks. These make a great looking quilt! For every block you make and turn in before the April Guild meeting, you get one chance to win a set of blocks. Mail to Mary Hoffman or text to make arrangements to drop off. 

You can find the pattern for the block located here:

Bullseye Block Swap

Bullseye Blocks will be distributed at noon on Sunday, March 21, at the Whitehall library. If you have not yet turned them in, they must be received by Mary no later than Friday March 19. There should be 15 bullseye and 15 reverse bullseye, using a single 30’s print and Kona WHITE. 

The pattern can be found here online.

Pink Half-Square Triangle Block Swap

The last swap for HST, which are to be pink and Kona SNOW, are due by Sunday, March 21. Swappers should make 20 pages using the 2 inch finished template found here.

Please use KONA SNOW with pink. Don’t be afraid to use floral/prints as long as they are predominately pink. Drop off is at noon on Sunday, March 21st at the Whitehall library, or mail to Mary Hoffman.
