Amish Quilt Block

This block swap as 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 don’t have to participate every month, 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 (no prints allowed), one always being black and the other will change each month. It will measure 12-1/2" square.

March swap will be Green and Black. Remember solid colors.

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.

October - Orange (Complete)

November – Yellow (Complete)

December – Red (Complete)

January – Blue (Complete)

February – Pink (Complete)

I hope we get lots to join, this will be fun!

I was wondering if anyone had problems with the block coming out the correct size when using their measurements for cutting?

Just mailed my block to Australia. One block ironed folded protected In plastic and sent in a small Manila envelope cost me $6.55. I'm not a happy camper. That price is ludicrous. I like this block but looks like it might be best to just make my own, criminelli!

I'm going to miss the swap for April/Purple, and wonder if there is a US swapper that would be willing to do a one-on-one swap in May or June for the purple block with me? I'll need purple, but would do one you may have missed instead if desired.
