Calgary Mini Mod Swap to support Handmade Collective Awards

Want to feel connected with other quilters and guild mates?
Want to send some brightness and joy? 
Want to support a fantastic initiative?

Basic guidelines:

  • Pick your palette and background and sign up by April 25th.
  • Receive your swap partners, Foundation Paper Pieced block patterns, and more guidelines by April 29th
  • Use Solid fabrics (no grunge, batik, tone on tone, etc)  to make 30 - 2"x2" blocks (unfinished size)
  • Keep 6 blocks for yourself and mail your 4 swap partners their 6 blocks - include a nice card or note for your swap partners when you send their blocks  - by May 25th.
  • Once you receive your blocks make a small project with them and have that ready for Show and Share at our July meeting. (Pincushions, pouches, thread catchers, mug rugs are all good project ideas.)
  • Donate a few dollars to the Handmade Collective Awards (Suggested $3-5. Over $10 and you will receive a tax receipt)
  • Note...several of us are signing up 2 or even 3 times!  If you want rainbow, or just more blocks for a bigger project, that's the way to go!
We'll use the hashtags
