Batik and Black Stretched Stars: New Block Swappers

Batik & Black Stretched Stars
Stop in and pick up the guidelines for this next Block Swapper Exchange. It's with Batiks and a Black fabric from RJR called "Hand Spray"that looks like a black batik. Participants will make 20 small 4" blocks with one batik and the black Hand Spray. Return them by the 1st of the month. They'll get swapped with others and you'll get 20 different ones when you pick them up. Stop in and see the sample - there will be lots of layout options for this set of exchange blocks, too!

Little Quilts' Blockswappers: How to Set Those Blocks

Participants just completed the last exchange for the Reproduction Nine Patch Block Swap at Little Quilts. We've put together different layouts (above and see actual quilts below) using some or all of the blocks. Sizes range from throw size to full size quilts. Patterns could be suggested layouts for any 6" block. Patterns are $2 each.

Reproduction Nine Patch 85" x 85" - made by Kathie West. Kathie used her 72 blocks from the Block Swapper Exchange and made a few more to complete the quilt.

Nine Patch Strippy. Mary Ellen made this strippy 66" x 80" and used only 32 of the Nine Patch Blocks from The Reproduction Nine Patch Block Swap. She's planning to make the Nine Patch with Hour Glass Blocks with the remaining 30 Nine Patch Blocks. That quilt will be 72" x 84". Layout pattern (see above) available at Little Quilts.

Jo Morton Little Women Club

These are the Jo Morton Club quilts from the March meeting. We took a diversion from the club patterns and made another Jo pattern we desired to make. Ideally something larger. How inspiring!
