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.

I just put the last of those stamps on Valentines this morning. He’ll be relieved I am out and will need to buy more “Forever” stamps.
That is hilarious!
Mine in route tomorrow I missed the mail today.
I love you gals, you make my day.
And imagine all the days you’re about to make when we see our half- hearts and make our quilts!!!
Sorry I almost sent the all ‘rights’. I’ll get it together today n sent.
They are ready for mail! I can overnight them if you want?
Lol. Took me a moment to figure that out, Lisa. Glad you were able to catch your oops before they went into the mail.
Kathy (and all) -mine went in the mail yesterday Priority Mail tracking #9505 5121 6743 9037 2849 57 due by 2/8. Had been trying to get to the PO for 2 days and finally did. Woohoo - can't wait to see all the beautiful hearts in person and what everyone does with them! Thank you ladies for this wonderful swap, your words of encouragement, your faithfulness and your creativity. Mwaaaa! Hugs and kisses to all!
Mine have flown to Georgia!
And they have arrived. Wish that you could have packed in some warm weather in that package.
