BlockSwap

A block swap is a fun activity for a group of quilters. Everybody sews a pre-determined number of identical blocks which are then swapped among the group members. As a result, every quilter has a set of different blocks which can then be made into a sampler or friendship quilt.

Beyond our Wildest Dreams

International Block Swap

When we started working on our first International Block Swap, we were thinking along the lines of “If we can persuade everyone we know to participate plus, perhaps/ hopefully/ maybe, a few quilters from around the world, we will have, at best, 40 to 50 block packages to swap”. Little did we know that at the finish, we would have received 168 block packages from almost as many quilters from around the world. The participants really come from all corners of the globe: Austria, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Slovakia, Switzerland, the UK, and the USA...
