    about 16 yrs ago I traded with my neighbor Carol. She wanted a quilt and I needed some painting done. So she bought the fabric and I made this - my one and only king size quilt- I did it over one whole winter and it is 100% sewn by hand no machine stitching at all. I echo quilted around the Sues and STID along the sashing. I made a paper version of the Sues and hand stitched around those paper Sues to quilt the wide border. Carol did the binding.
    The Sues are pretty simple but she liked it.

    Using scraps in swaps

    I use a lot of my scraps in swaps. this does not work if you need to make 12 identical blocks with the same fabric but more and more there are swaps you need to make 6 of the same pattern but they can be different colors. Here is one I am in right now

    It calls for 6 blocks of the same pattern but they can be made with different fabrics. Here is a picture of my first set for this swap.

    Above that are pictures of blocks I received back in a similar previous swap.

    I love the Sue quilt Rhonda! Sounds like a big job all by hand but so worth it.

So, my cousin (made 1 2/3), her daughter (made 5), my DSIL (made 3 1/3), and I (made 2)decided to do this. I quilted all 12, and my DSIL bound all of them. So here are some of our pics.


    I was just about to make one of these comfort quilts for my Dad after seeing this thread posted this week. This afternoon I got word that my Dad, an Alzheimer patient, lost his battle with this disease. It brings such a mixture of feelings... Dad is released from his suffering but I miss him so much.

    So sorry, Linda. When my parents passed I felt like an orphan.

    I wonder if you could use left over jelly roll pieces for this quilt? HOw wide are your pieces? Looks pretty easy to draft a pattern for this quilt.

    In time for what Judy? If you mean the scrap swap it will continue. As soon as I have enough who want to swap this next time I will post another sign up.

    Quilt block swap

    I'm more than willing to set up a quilt block swap.

    I would like to see at least 6 players before we swap
    The quilt blocks need to be made before you sign up so they can be mailed shortly after sign up.
    They should be scrappy in keeping with the intent of our Scrap Club.
    Size is negotiable. Post what size you have to swap and we will see what is possible for partners
    Otherwise I would suggest 12 1/2" for size.

    When this swap is posted will depend on when I get enough swappers

    Thank you

    I, too, was considering the 2.5 inch strips for this pattern. It would be easy to make the template to cut the print or solid white triangle from the 2.5 inch strip for sewing the half square triangle block.

    Then I was debating whether or not to use the smaller squares for the center pieces or one larger piece. Right now, I am leaning toward the smaller center piece and ask members to submit 8-10 quarter units each. My focal point is making a completed block which is simple and could be sashed on the right side and on the bottom. This would allow for squaring off the blocks submitted by several different sewers.

    The guild I belong to makes charity quilts. This block could be sashed on the top, as well, and be used as a row for the charity quilts we will begin in January. Small groups will do a row and pass their unit to another group. Then, the individual groups will work on a row for the quilt they receive. Our goal is to meet/know all members of the guild, use our stash and/or donated fabrics, and have the guild pay for the batting and professional quilting.

    The name of the quilt is Cross-Terrain, you may find the instructions if you search the web, that is where I found it.

    Jelly Roll would be perfect - it uses 2.5" strips. For each 'quarter' you will need a 2.5" x 5.5" scrap rectangle with a 2.5 white square sewed on corner. A 2.5" x 3.5" white with a 1.5" square scrap sewed on the corner and to this piece you sew a 2.5" scrap square. Then sew this piece to the 2.5"x 5.5" rectangle piece to make your quaretr block. 3 more make a "circle" block

    I am not at home for another fortnight, at our fishing shack sewing like crazy and I will be starting another one of these quilts tomorrow so I will try and take a couple of pics of this process if I can.

    Linda,

    So sorry to hear of the loss of your dad. I lost my mom 7 years ago today. I try to concentrate on the good and not dwell on the suffering because I know she is now 100% healthy and happily watching over me.

    I'm following along here and when you're ready for more swaps I'll be watching. I have orphan blocks and scraps. If we are going to exchange scrappy blocks, for one swap could we settle on 1 or 2 block patterns to use? Such as a star or snails trail, log cabin, 9-patch, churn dash, etc.?

    My orphan blocks are various sizes and shapes, no particular pattern for each, just random patterns.
