beautiful! I read about block swaps in a recent quilting mag and thought it would be interesting, but it didn't provide any info on finding a block swap. I live in a rural area and we don't have a quilting guild or club :( The owner of the tiny local shop said she tried to start a club, but no one was interested.

Hi MsQuilty, Thanks as always for your nice words. You have some interest in lock swaps. Here is an web address that is not a swap but is asking for quilters to make a specified block which will be used to make quilts for Hurricane Sandy victims. http://quiltinggallery.com/quilters-fun/sandy-quilt-block-drive

I've never heard of a block swap! Does it mean that you start the block and someone else finishes it ? Do you then pass the blocks along so that everyone has some input? Or have I got it complete wrong? I love the trees and the frosty look of this block, with the stippling on the ice.

Hi, The Block swap that I am participating in asks each participant to make the entire block. I know there are other types of swaps that do as you mentioned above. Thanks for your nice comment.

There are a lot of ways to swap blocks or do block round robins. This particular one you swap finished mini quilts. You pay to enter at Quilting Gallery
