Amish Quilt Block
This block swap is a monthly series, with a different color theme each month. It is an easy block and everyone has solid color fabric hanging around. By this time next year, we will have enough blocks to make a quilt.
You donâ€™t have to participate every month, but it will be fun to have blocks all made by someone else to put together as a quilt.
For this swap, you will make your partner one block. The block will have two SOLID color fabrics PLEASE no prints allowed, one will always being black and the other will change each month. The finished block will measure 12-1/2" square (required). It is the same pattern every month.
This month the swap will be Red and Black.
I am giving you until the end of the month in case you are a little backed up with the holidays (like I am!).
Here is the pattern: Amish Quilt Block Pattern
The following is the list of the months and color themes, in case you want to get started on making your blocks to swap.

January â€“ Blue
February â€“ Pink
March â€“ Green
April â€“ Purple
May - Peach
June â€“ Gold

I am going to open this up to international because the envelop will not be very heavy and the cost should be low to mail an envelop. To keep the cost down, iron your block as flat as you can to make the envelop thin. (This does work!!)
******I hope we get lots to join, this will be a lot of fun!!!!
