Teeny Tiny Quilt block swap mosaic

 

1. All swap participants must sign-up via Flickr. Round 1 sign-up open until 1/15/2015, or until the 12 spots are filled

2. All blocks must be 4 inch(finished) blocks. You chose your own method, paper piece, traditional piecing, & applique. Please, make your blocks fit the theme of the round. **Round 1 theme is still up for discussion.**

3. Every swap participant must make a quantity of 12 4" blocks and mail them to me no later than Feb 15, 2015 (I will flickr mail participants my address once sign-ups are closed). If you are shipping internationally mail your blocks out as soon as possible. Be sure to include a self-addressed stamped envelope so I can ship your swap blocks back to you. All 12 blocks should be identical (as possible).

FYI: If you are an international swapper you’ll have to reimburse me via paypal for postage.

4. When making your blocks, please only send blocks that you yourself would love to receive. Don’t be a donkey’s patootie and send a poorly made block. When in doubt about a fabric/design choice you can always ask other swappers’ opinions via flickr.

5. Please, only use quilt shop quality fabric with a modern/contemporary style.

6. Have fun with it! The more interesting the design the better. Treat these teeny tiny blocks like little works of art. I’m open to beading, embroidery, etc. **Embellishments are also up for discussion***

Thanks in advance to everyone who signs up

I spotted Jeliquilts having a sale on Instgram and I was inspired by her Double Goosed pattern to make it into a wreath. I love the non traditional colors I chose for my wreath. I’m thinking this will become a pillow. I know, I have a lot of pillows! I whipped this 14″ block up in a couple hours. I was totally in the zone. It’ll probably never happen again haha!

Don’t you find spur of the moment sewing so much more satisfying? I certainly do. I see something cute and I want to make one for myself. I love it even more when it doesn’t call for too many more items to buy haha! I only had to buy some fresh new kitchen towels for this project. I could have used old ones, but they were only $4 a Target.

This is a great project for scraps! And adding trims is SO much fun.

Isn’t it cute? I used this tutorial. I added snaps instead of ties. I didn’t think I’d ever tie the ties so snaps was the solution. Also, I just wanted to use my snaps :)

I think I need to make a couple more of these!
