Charity Quilts


January Block Swap

This is the first month of our six month block swap. You can read about the details of the swap by clicking on the Intro link in the 2012 Block Swap list on the right side of the page.

Our first two inspiration blocks are a Star of Virginia and a Greek Cross.

Katie of Swim, Bike, Quilt wrote a great tutorial for the Star of Virginia, and it can be found here.

And Faith over at Fresh Lemon Quilts wrote a tutorial for the Greek Cross, find it here.

Please make two blocks, one to swap with other guild members at the February meeting, and one to donate toward a future donation quilt. You can decide to follow one of the tutorials listed or create your own block. Blocks should be 12.5 inches square when finished, and may be made using any colors you choose.

Also, feel free to make more than one donation block if you would like, donation blocks are always welcome!

We look forward to seeing the beautiful blocks that you come up!

  1. Hi. I'm new to the club and new to block swapping. Are we making two blocks of each design, or just two in general?
