Come on and join the fun this month! We are swapping Quilt Blocks that I designed.

Choose any of the quilt blocks I have designed.
You can find them in the Sampler Quilt Along (84 available there) or on my website or in any of my tutorials including my Ebooks if you have them.

Rhonda's Workshops and Classes
http://www.quiltingboard.com/virtual...jsp?vsnum=1010

My website:
http://www.bitsnpiecesworkshop.com


Partners will be assigned and you can contact your partner for her/his color preferences and her/his info.

You need to make a 12 ˝“ x 12 ˝“ unfinished quilt block.
Please make sure the quilt block you make is 12 1/2" without adding any borders.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Each month we will choose new swap partners. You can join or drop out at any time. Just please let me know if you can not participate in any one month.

If for any reason you can not follow through on a quilt block to your partner please let me know as soon as possible so I may provide a substitute. Thanks!!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please make sure to read the general rules that apply to all swaps here at the Quilting Board: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

Please use 100% cotton. Washing fabrics before or not is up to you and your partner.

This swap is for all skill levels. If you feel you can't do one of my Quilt Blocks but you would like to try I will be happy to help. Just pm me and I will walk you through any parts you feel you need help with.


BLOCK DIRECTIONS:

Here are the directions for making my "Blocks" as in
Boston Blocks / Star Point Blocks / Wings Blocks / HSTs /Drunkard's Path Blocks / Kansas Dugout Blocks

Rhonda's "Block" Shortcuts using the Cut Down Method
http://www.quiltingboard.com/virtual...jsp?vsnum=1020

My cut down method makes it easy to make accurate blocks(units) that will make accurate quilt blocks.

TEMPLATES

You will need templates. I will get them out to anyone who needs them as soon as I can. Let me know as soon as possible so I have time to get them out to you. It can take up to 2 weeks to get them to Canada. International swappers are welcome but can also take longer to mail.

Most of my designs are made with 6 blocks to a row and 6 rows in the quilt block. I refer to this as a 6 x 6 grid. Or some are made with a 4 x 4 grid. There may be a few on my website that are a 3 x 3 grid, Not all of my designs on my website show the layout. So if you need a layout for a design just let me know and I will provide one.
Please choose one you can make into a 12 1/2" without having to add a border to get the right size.

Size of templates you will need:
For a 12 ˝” unfinished quilt block

For a 6 x 6 grid
2 ˝” for making-- HSTs / Bostons / Kansas Dugouts / Drunkard’s Path
for the Star Points and Wings Blocks you will also need the paper templates.

Wings - http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-108533-1.htm
