Patchwork Posse Block Swap # 2

Get Ready, Get Set, GO!

I received confirmation from the Patchwork Posse Quilt Guild that I am officially approved to participate in their block swap.

Time to get started!

Using their courthouse steps pattern I am to make twelve 9 1/2″ square blocks . Before I can get started I must first make my fabric selections. The rules of the swap provided the following guidelines:

  • brightish colors
  • no dark and dirty colors
  • no conversation prints

I rummaged through my stockpiles looking for suitable candidates. After pulling and pairing together multiple fabric choices I finally decided to purchase the fabrics from a local fabric store. Here’s what I came home with

Time to get my fabrics cut and ready to sew.

And Again!

I belong to the online quilt guild called Patchwork Posse. You can find a link to their website here. I first talked about them here.

Patchwork Posse Quilt Guild

Patchwork Posse issued an invitation to its members way back in January to join a block swap. Each participant was to make 12 9 1/2″ squares using the pattern Courthouse Steps. Following their specific guidelines the blocks are to be finished and mailed by the end of March.

I bet you’ve already guessed what I’m going to confess.

That’s right, I have signed up to participate. I know, I know, I know! You’re very right! I already have more than enough on my plate but I figure what’s the harm.

So, here goes…

Finding Time

If you are like me, it’s very hard to find time to regularly attend monthly quilt guild meetings. Six months out of the year I spend the majority of my days at my Little Cabin In The Woods or visiting friends and relatives. Being away so often makes it darn near impossible to experience a monthly meeting.

On-Line Quilt Group

While reading a post from one of my favorite blogs, Canoe Ridge Creations, I found a link to an online quilt group. The group is organized and presented by Patchwork Posse. The structure is similar to that of a typical quilt group with one exception, it meets online.
