About 3 1/2 years ago, my daughter and I started the Quilt Block Exchange Flickr group. Instead of swapping mini quilts or doll quilts we wanted a group to swap quilt blocks. Things went along great for a while and then interest dwindled so we haven't been exchanging for quite some time. Several new and old members of the group have shown interest again so if enough people sign up we will be swapping again in September.
Are you interested in being a part of this exchange? The guidelines are simple:
1. Sign up indicating the size, color, type of block you would want to receive.
2. At the beginning of the month I will post a list of participants and their desires and let everyone know who they should make blocks for. Usually the most you will need to make are 3-4 blocks.
3. Each participant is responsible for getting the address of those they are making blocks for and for providing their own address to those making blocks for them. This is usually done via Flickrmail.
4. By the end of the month, you should have your blocks finished and in the mail and then you just wait and see what arrives in your mail box.
The nice thing about this exchange is that you are only committing to one month at a time and can sit out for a month or two if your life is too hectic, etc.
So if this sounds like fun to you, head on over and sign-up for September!
