For this swap we will be swapping quilting blocks!


1 block to each partner - for a maximum number of partners of 6. It could be less if not many people sign up.

The finished quilt size is 50" X 63 1/2" - of course you can always make it bigger by creating more blocks on your own if you want.

The tutorial is free and can be found at: https://quiltingtutorials.com/tutorial/the-adorable-i-spy-jar-quilt

It is a tutorial by Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilt Company. It is a 12 minute video - very cute but easy quilt! It looks like it would be scrap friendly which is why I am choosing it for this swap!

If you get your block and it meets requirements please rate a 5. Hearts, as always, are at your discretion. Please no quilt police - we all try to do our best and I really want these swaps to be inviting and not stressful. However, with that in mind I do understand that measurements are super important with quilting...so if it is way off please give the swapper the chance to re-do the square for the full 5. If it is just a tad off (like 1/8") I am sure we can maneuver it into the quilt just fine.

Color Rules: Solid white background, solid gray jar lids. No rules as to the prints for the jars except they have to be prints (no solids for jars) - this is meant to be scrappy. Generally, smaller scale prints work best. You need to be able to see what you spy!

I will email all NEW swappers with the written instructions if you prefer them over the video. In the written instructions you will go through step 4 - which finishes a block at 4 1/2" X 5 1/2" - PINT jars. Do not add the sashing. This will be done by you when you are putting your final quilt together. (If you were in part 1 I will not re-send the instructions automatically, but please let me know if you need them again).

Let's have fun with this!

Please ask any questions below and I will answer them as quick as possible. Private message me for faster responses.

Rating of 4.88 or higher required. Any recent 1s or 3s please message me first. Newbies message me first (after you have filled out your profile). USA only.

FUTURE SWAPS: I will keep hosting these swaps every month until we have 42 squares!
