General information:

In this block swap, you’ll be using either white, grey or black as a background colour, and either warm, cool, or neutral colours as the highlight of the block. See the palette choices below. This block swap uses solid colours only, no prints or batiks.

Once signup is completed, you will receive an email with information about the colour preferences of people in your group of five, as well as their names and addresses so you know where to send your blocks. You’ll also receive the foundation paper-piecing patterns, and links to videos showing other ways to make the blocks with strip piecing.

Each participant will make 30 mini blocks, either foundation paper-pieced or using strip piecing techniques, and will be part of a group of five people. Each person in the group will keep 6, and then send 6 blocks to each other person in the group, so you’ll send 24 blocks and receive 24 blocks. This is a nice opportunity to send a card to a new friend, so tuck your blocks into a happy card and add a friendly note. What fun to receive mail from other members of the guild!

The designer of this block swap, Berene C., has given this program to guilds for free, but asks that each participant make a small donation ($3 – $5) to a bursary she has set up at Ryerson for black, indigenous, and LGBTQ students.

Donations of $10 or more will receive a tax
receipt. Read a bit more about the bursary here:
