QNT Black & white & ORANGE all over Round #7

12-10-18 thru 1-5-19

--1 partner

--2 different blocks to your partner

--orange round #7

I have been wanting to make this colorful quilt for a little while so I am hoping others will want to as well.

This block series will be a great way to use up some small scraps of fabrics from our stash, or you can go buy more fabric in quarter yard cuts..…you have my permission!

Each month we will exchange 2 different blocks with one partner, and keep 2 blocks for ourselves.

Please note that the instructions below are for ONE block only, you will have to repeat it 4 times to get the suggested 2 different blocks to send and 2 blocks to keep.

*use 1/4 inch seam allowance to end up with a 8 1/2 inch block

Bright colored prints are best for the border fabrics. This series we will use print fabrics only, no solids. Small prints work better for these blocks than large prints.

Cutting instructions for one block:

Cut 2 different black and white prints into rectangles: 2 ½” X 4 ½”

Cut 6 orange prints into rectangles: 2 ½” X 4 ½” (the sample picture was assembled with 4 to 6 different red prints)

Assembly per block:

1.Sew the 2 black and white prints together to create center of the block. (assemble on the 4 ½ inch side, NOT at the end of 2 ½” side.) This creates your center. Press seams.

2.Attach a ORANGE print rectangle to each end of center block. (lay center block on the table with the 4 ½” side closest to you) Attach one ORANGE print rectangle to each end on the left and right. Press.

3.Sew 2 ORANGE rectangles together end-to-end on the 2 1/2“sides making a long rectangle. Repeat with the other 2 PINK rectangles. Attach one of these units to the top and one to the bottom of the block. Press.

I hope my instructions are clear, and if they are not, please let me know. I love to look at an assembled block as my example so you can look at the picture on this swap to see what you will end up with.

FUTURE ROUNDS our black and white centers will have:

Have fun and swap-on!

Is this the final swap of this series?

I'm eager to get a quilt put together -- will make some extra blocks to make it the size I want.

Yes, you sure can consider this the "fall" version of this swap series.

these blocks are turning into one of my favorite patterns to use...so fast and so fun

Thank you @junemoon for your question, and for joining the swap.

Thank you to everyone else that is participating in this series as well.

We can have more rounds of this swap series if there is interest. We could start the year out with a new round of colors....let me know if you are interested.

perkl8r 12/ 3/2018 #

I have some new rounds set up for this swap for 2019.

developpeople 12/10/2018 #

I'm interested in a new round of this swap.

junemoon 12/17/2018 #

I'll keep going although I also have the bow tie swap starting.

I'd be happy to do some new colors and repeat some of the basics too. I just made a run to the fabric store and have a new bunch of basics and a 1/4 will make more than what I can possibly use. I'm sure everyone has ideas, Here are some colors I'd suggest: aqua, lime green, plum, sky blue, navy, teal, denim blue, lavender, cornflower, coral, kelly green, fuschia, shrimp/peach
