The Idea

"Water is the elixir of life," and the most valuable resource on our planet. What are your associations with this element?

We are inviting you, quilters around the world, to take part in our second International Block Swap (IBS2). Make 9 quilt blocks with a water theme and send them to us. All participants will be grouped into teams and the blocks will be swapped within the team. You will get back your own block plus 8 different blocks from quilters around the world.


Join in and become part of an exciting international quilting activity!


To take part, please download the enclosed information flyer and fill in the registration form. Blocks will be sent to our Munich office (postal address, please see flyer).


The "Water for the World" Community Quilt

We would like to have a lasting reminder of IBS2 and to this end are asking you to make and send an extra block on a voluntary basis, of course, which we will then sew together to make a gigantic "Water for the World" community quilt.
