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, currently slated for May 2022.

Stash Buster Challenge 2022

We are going to be making Border Creek Station’s 2022 Scrap Buster block. This is a great chance for you to use up some of your scraps! 

The fabric for each block should read as two shades of a color, one darker and one lighter, and the little corner squares can be any medium to navy blue. Use prints or solids, or a combination. The background can be any low volume on white fabric. We are going for a cheerful looking result so keep that in mind when choosing fabric.

Please make 20 10.5” blocks. This enough to make a baby quilt, or you can add borders to make a throw or lap-sized quilt. Blocks will be due on May 15.
