The Blocks Above are:

The blocks shown in the photo above are some of the blocks I received from a previous block swap within my quilting bee in Alvin, TX. The theme was a Christmas Swap and we had 25 members sign up for it. The instructions were to make a block for each participant (and one for yourself) from Christmas fabric. They could be any color, or combination of colors as long as they were Christmas Fabrics and had a creme colored background. We were told that we could use any block we wanted and any technique we wanted, applique, paper piecing, traditional piecing, etc. At the end of the challenge, we discovered that no block had been duplicated and none of the fabrics were the same. This was all accidental, since no one knew what the others were doing. Can you believe that 25 women who sewed together every Tuesday could keep secrets for such a long time? I made a table cloth for my dessert table from them. Thanks for joining our Group!

I was think you pick your book and pattern and work on your own or we could do one together

I'm also trying to think of how you would do it as a row by row quilt with a group
Comment by Megan/Australia on September 19, 2017 at 3:51pm
Or an alternative could be an exchange if there was enough interest"...blow the blocks up to 12". Each person chooses a block, maybe colour theme and exchange blocks...would need 12 people

How would it work? Not sure I understand.

The Splendid Sampler is a good challenge. It is being done by Pat Sloan using the book this year. Links can be found on her site or the Facebook page

Kate -until just this moment I hadn't read your post.  Yes I believe you need to get your therapy sewing machine whirring away!! It really helps me to when I am in need of good therapy.

I am planning on having total knee replacement in October so if you want to do some sort of challenge I may be able to participate. Keep me informed!  And Carol, I read your post and I was so happy you were spared the problems so many of your friends & neighbors have experienced recently.  You have had your share and more of bad things going on in recent years.  Glad to hear from you!!
