The Block Exchange is a voluntary program that gives participants an opportunity to try new methods of assembling a block, try out new blocks, get a wide variety of color interpretations, get some assistance in making blocks or any combination of the above. Each month one or two participants prepare a “kit” to give to the other block exchange members. This “kit” might contain pre-cut fabric with a pattern and directions. It might only contain fabric and ask for you to choose a pattern or contain a pattern and ask you to provide some or all the fabric.
Kits should take no more than 90 minutes to assemble and are to be machine pieced. Completed blocks should be returned at the following month’s guild meeting. Sometimes when schedules get very hectic, you can at least know you will be sewing a block or two each month for the block exchange, if nothing else!
This program will start in September, skip December and have the last set of kits go out in May. Depending on how many participants we have, you may receive 2 kits in one month.
You might want to consider this as an interesting way to make a quilt for the Silent Auction.....
