St. Patricks Day Block Swap

Information

St. Patricks Day Block Swap

This block swap will be a St. Patricks Day theme.  All experience levels welcome from beginner to expert. Blocks can be either patchwork or appliqué.  All blocks must be in to me no later than April 1st, 2018. We are looking for 10-16 people to participate.  if you are looking to participate let me know. Once I have a head count of how many people are participating I will let you know how many blocks each person should make.

Rules for the block:

Please wash all your fabric before you begin your project.  I request this to will help ensure that colors don't run on the pretty white and that you do not have to worry about varying shrinkage. Different fabrics shrink at different rates no matter how good your fabric is.  

Please use good quality fabric.  

Background fabric MUST be White or White on White. NO grey, tan, eucre, eggshell or off white.  White only!!!!!!!

The block size must be 12" finished blocks- (which means that when you mail it to me it should be 12 1/2" x 12 1/2") 

All blocks must be St. Patricks day themed i.e. shamrocks, leprechauns, pots of gold or something of that nature.  If you are questioning your idea please message me and I will help guide you. 

For this block swap I am asking that your block be "on Point"- which means that you are basically making a diamond not a square.

I am so excited for this project.  if you have any questions or concerns please let me know.  Let the sewing begin.

I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.
