Pillow Swap Directions

I’m so excited about the response to our first swap!  27 members decided to participate!  Each brought a fat quarter of modern fabric, filled out a quick form about preferences and put both in a bag that was then picked up by a different member.  The object is to use the fat quarter and add other fabric to make a design based on one of our previous block lotto blocks, but used in a different way.  We are encouraged to use one or more of the elements of modern quilting – alternate grid, negative space, asymmetry, improvisation and minimalism- in our design of the 16.5-inch square pillow top.  The top should be completed by the October meeting, when instructions for the pillow back will be given.  The return of the finished pillow covers is set for November.  Here are a few quick ideas for some of our blocks.  Check out the block lotto page for pics of all of the blocks we’ve done so far.
