This swap is for twelve 9 patch quilt blocks. You will swap with only one partner. This is a great way to add that scrappy look to your small quilts. Each 9 patch consists of a dark and light fabric as shown in the photo. It is one of the simplest blocks to piece, but care should be taken to match the seams when piecing your rows together.
The blocks you will piece each measure 3.5" when you are finished piecing them and put them in the envelope to send to your swap partner. The light and dark fabric pieces should be cut 1.5". It is extremely important to measure these pieces correctly when cutting or the blocks will not be the correct size. Please use a 1/4" seam when piecing the blocks. Fabrics must be 100% cotton and should be pre-washed. Please use better quality fabrics for this swap.
I will provide directions on my blog for using 12 blocks to make a 17"x21" doll quilt,or use your blocks any way you'd like.
All swappers will be considered, but I highly recommend previous sewing experience.
Please list your color likes and dislikes in the discussion. You will not be swapped with if this information is not completed.
