    March Paper Pieced Kaleidoscope Block Swap

    Welcome to our Paper Pieced Kaleidoscope block swap. We will be making 6 1/2" unfinished blocks using the free pattern and template from Quilters Cache:


    http://www.quilterscache.com/images4...oscopetemp.gif

    The template and instructions will make
    one kaleidoscope block measuring 6 1/2" unfinished.



    We need a minimum of 6 swappers in order for this to be a 'go'.
    Please print out lots of copies of the template as we will be making lots and lots of
    Kaleidoscope quilt blocks!! If you look online you'll see that the success of these quilts depends on High Contrast. Let's step it up a little bit for this swap and each make
    32 blocks - 16 light/dark and 16 dark/light.

    Each swapper may decide paper on/paper off - either one is fine. Each swapper may use whatever mailing method is most cost-effective
    as long as you make sure to pay for return postage
    .

    I encourage each swapper to use a variety of different fabrics in your various
    kaleidoscope blocks. Each block is to have a max of 3 different fabrics; one light, one dark and light/neutral corners.


    Please PM me with:

    Your screen name
    Your real name
    Address/city/state/zip

    Our mailing deadline will be Friday April 27, 2018. This will allow all of us plenty of time to finish and mail our blocks. Please use whatever mailing method is most cost effective for you as long as you include/pay for return postage. ((or pay for the postage and put it on your return envelope)). It depends on what your PO will allow you to do.
    Please Label Your Quilt Blocks. Any blocks not labeled will be returned unswapped.

    This is going to be loads of fun! Let's Go!!

    I noticed that several of the blocks, some of mine as well, didn't have enough contrast when set with other quilt blocks. So, in this next swap, let's all really focus on strong contrast light/dark and dark/light.

    It's fun to take a picture with my camera and switch it to black & white to really see the contrast & see the circles our blocks create.

    I hope we get a good turnout for this swap!
