Partners assigned -June 7th
All skill levels are welcome! Beginners can do these designs!
This swap is to show you how to use my shortcut methods to make Quilt Blocks!!
You'll sew fabric together and then cut out a square from the center creating a Pieced Square
These become Boston Blocks / Half Square Triangles/ Star Point Blocks/ Wings Blocks and more.
The Quilt Block you use needs to be one I designed.
You will get a partner and you and your partner will exchange quilt blocks.
You need a 2 1/2" template.
If you don't have one let me know and I will send you one for free.
Use 100% cotton --prewashed or not is up to you.
Don't use borders to make it 12 1/2".
Pm me when you receive or mail out.
Please make sure to read the general rules that apply to all swaps here at the Quilting Board:
