Block/Fabric Exchange 2019

·2019 Kids Prints Fabric Exchange

Hi everyone, I’m so excited about the new Fabric Exchange of bright kids prints (not baby pastels) and primary colors.  We will start with 1 1/8th yard (40.5 inches) of quilt shop quality cotton in a bright kid’s print which you will square up and cut into 3” strips the width of fabric (WOF).

January will be a print of your choice, alternating  every other month of a bright “solid” which  could be a solid or tone on tone or texture, but absolutely “reads like as a solid”  (ex. Crackle print or Grunge is ok) in the color listed in the following schedule.   In July, we’ll change gears and work with 6” squares.

•       Buy 1 1/8th  (40.5”)  yard square it up and cut 12– 3” strips WOF

•       Fold strips separately

•       Put them in one bag with your name on it

I will be collecting them at the General Meeting, 1st Tuesday of each month. (Jan 8th this time).  Again, I’m very excited to be doing this with all of you, I hope you will have fun participating!

Questions or comments please call me,

MaryAnn Perry
