For this swap we will be swapping quilting blocks!
ROUND 1 WENT REALLY WELL!! YOU CAN JOIN THIS SWAP AT ANY ROUND.
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!
