    Okay....I signed up through a quilt shop that I buy from online to do a block swap. I have to make 36 blocks to be sent in by June 30th.

    My dilemna is that I want to make interesting blocks that are simple. I want to get them done quickly so I can keep moving along on my other projects but, don't want them to be boring. I want to make something I would want to receive.

    Any block suggestions?

    P.S. There is still room in this swap to join if anyone is interested. It costs $5 (this covers the postage to mail the blocks back to you) and you make 36 blocks and get 35 back. The shop is www.cottonpatchquilts.com. It is the sister/brother block swap.

    Why not use some of the BOM from here?

    www.quilterscache.com has some wonderful patterns & if you know the size you need, you can narrow your choices by browsing through just that size. sounds like a fun swap & look forward to seeing what you get in return.

    Looks to me like you answered your own question. Make what makes you happy. Hopefully, the recipient will feel the same!

    Just went and signed up sounds like too much fun to pass up. And I couldn't pay for the block swap and not buy some fabric, that would just be wrong. :-)

    Now I too am questioning what type of block to make. Sept was full so I have to have mine done for June.

    Yeah! I am in the June one too! How exciting! You can't beat it for $4.95 and then, you have blocks that came from fellow quilters all over the place! I can't wait to see what comes back!

    Do all 36 have to be different? If not, how about the friendship star. Easy, but nice & appropriate block title for a swap.
