2015 Block Swap

My friends and I have a wonderful time doing block swaps and since we don't live near each other it is a fun way for us to stay in touch every month. We decided to start this swap in February and mailed our first blocks on March first. 

Anne picked our block swap quilt for this year. She spied the pattern at the Charlotte Quilt Show last July. It's called Reminisce and was designed by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings. You can order the pattern here

We are going to be making 4 blocks for each person each month because this 72X84" quilt has 168 6" blocks! We will be swapping blocks until December. We keep thinking if we make enough scrap quilts with our Civil War fabric that we will use up our stashes.....but it doesn't seem to be working! That's okay-we love them all! 

These are my blocks for our first month swap. 

These are the blocks that I received from Pam, Anne, and Karen. I think we are off to a great start! 

Happy quilting,
