Holiday Block Exchange

    For those of you who are collecting blocks for that special Holiday Quilt, we are again having the Holiday Quilt Block Exchange. The blocks are to be 12 ½ x 12 ½ unfinished, with a white or off-white background. You may contribute up to 3 blocks. Use only quality cotton prewashed fabrics. Submit only a block you would like to keep yourself

Quilt on a Stick Challenge

    Make an 8” wide x 9” high quilt with any holiday theme: Christmas, Halloween, Independence Day, President’s Day, etc.

    Use any construction method – piece your block, applique it, or use other techniques; add all the embellishments you wish – paint, beads, crystals, ribbons, embroidery, etc.; and, finally, machine or hand quilt your Quilt-on-a-Stick

    The quilt backing must include a centered, vertical sleeve (1½” x 8”) in which a paint stick can be inserted.  Get your paint stick for free or for a minimal cost anywhere paint is sold (hardware stores, home improve-ment stores, etc.).  Make sure you bring a container to hold your quilt upright – a mason jar of beans, a flowerpot of buttons, etc. Be creative!
