Brown Bag Swap Starts This Month
If you would like to participate, make a block. Your block can be any size totaling NO LARGER THAN 12.5" UNFINISHED.
(Examples: two 6.5" x 12.5" or four 6.5 squares...or smaller such as one 8.5" or a rectangle)
Colleen will collect blocks and put each in a brown bag. You may add fabric, patterns, or requests.
Each month for 6 months, the block will circulate to other members who will make another block for you.
At the end of 6 months, you will have a set of blocks to make into a quilt!
Contact Colleen if you have any questions.
