In 2022 we tried a
Quilt Block Exchange
(Give us some feedback if you want to do it in 2023)
Below were the instructions for 2022:
Using Red, White, and Blue (2022 quilt show theme), create a 4 1/2" block.
(4 1/2" is the unfinished size, so they will finish at 4")
Make 10-12 blocks (or more) and bring them to the Festival.
Display them near your station during classes.
You can even pin one on to show others your are participating.
Then trade them with others to assemble your own unique quilt.
Put some effort into this and show off your skills...
Friday night will be "Open Trade" and a presentation on assembling your project and finishing it off.
ALSO - Donate one of your blocks for one of next year's opportunity quilts.
Here are some Quilt Block Exchange samples
We get so many great comments about our quilt show each year.
We will be announcing this years' theme soon, so be watching here so you can make a quilt to fit the theme.
What quilts will you display with us this year???
