For this swap we will have two partners and we will make each partner a 12 x 12 inch quilt block with the pattern for this month. Make sure you leave a quarter inch seam all the way around, so the square actually ends up being 12.5 x 12.5 inches.
This months pattern is the String Blocks Pattern.
Here is the link.
This pattern calls for a 8.5 inch block to start with and we are going to change this to 12.5. With the extra 1/2 inch addition, you will start out with a 13 inch square foundation fabric. Very simple step-by-step instructions.
October is breast cancer awareness month, and the October birthstone is a pink stone. So we are going to have pink as our color for this month. If you want to incorporate breast cancer into your block, that is senders choice. No more then 2 of the strips are to allowed to be solid colors. If you don't want to do solids, that's okay, but if you do use them, no more then 2 of the strips in the entire block. Fabric needs to be mostly pink, but can have other colors in it as well.
*If you join the QBOTM, you don't have to stay in it for each round. It's not a requirement that you join each month.
*Make sure the fabrics are all 100% cotton fabrics and are 12.5 by 12.5 inches when finished.
*If you flake on any of these swaps you will be banned from future QBOTM swaps and I will report you to the group founder. We don't want swappers like that in this group.
Any questions, be sure to pm me and I'll be happy to answer them!
