Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
This swap is for (12) 12 1/2" blocks of any type of heart/s. (You need to start with a 13" x 13" piece of fabric)
We are looking for bright, unusual, colorful bohemian type hearts. They can be patchwork, pieced, applique, embroidery, whatever you like. Just make sure that the heart is centered on the block. The heart can be any size. They can be embellished with lace, rick-rack, or anything else as long as it can be sewn through when quilted. When sewing is completed, you will cut the blocks in half and send in 6 rights and 6 lefts. You will get back 6 rights and 6 lefts. These you will then sew to the 6 rights and 6 lefts that you kept. You end up with 12 blocks, half with your heart and half with the other participants.
We are looking for blocks that represent you. Maybe you have horses, and your blocks all have horse fabrics, or maybe you are a Star Trek fan, or you love jigsaw puzzles and you do crazy block hearts. It is all up to you.
The standard swap parameters apply of course. And don't forget to send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to get your return blocks.
Blocks will be due to me by February 8th. (Just in time for Valentine's Day)
If you have any questions, just let me know. Thanks, Kathy G.

Vicki M, I have not heard from you in a while and wondered if you were still going to join us for this swap. For some reason the system will not let me send you a private message, so please drop me a line when you get a chance. Thanks.
I sent her a message for you Kathy.
Mine should have arrived today.
Melanie and Beth, your hearts have arrived.
I love that we have such a talented group of ladies in this swap, I am just sorry that more people weren't as adventuresome as you all are. We are going to have such colorful and unique quilts, it will be amazing.
Hope you get/got my check. I agree these quilts will be very special. I can hardly wait.
I am excited to receive my blocks!
Ok back to work. Almost finished with final few and will take to PO on Monday. Priority mail to you. There will be 12 in package. Thanks for understanding....destressing worked, just hope it lasts for longer than a week LOL. Would like to work on a few other things while my mind isn’t cluttered...will send you email with tracking number.
Glad you’re feeling clear and destressed, Wilma.
Thanks, I can't wait to see them.
I still haven't heard anything from Vicki. Hopefully she is OK. I will get all of the rest of the blocks sent out ASAP. If I have to send hers later, then I will.
These are great, Wilma! Every set I see gets me more excited!
Thank you, Ginny. Was very nervous cutting them in half ...lol. Am excited also. Thanks for waiting for me to finish. Mom fell twice while we were gone destressing. Poor sister is having issues accepting the dementia issues.
