Does anyone know of any good centralized block swaps and how do I get in tune with them?
I notice this is your first post. Welcome to the QCA forums!
I was going to say that Bonnie Hunter's list does block swaps, but I don't think that's right. You might do a search on the Yahoo groups site and see if anything comes up.
Hello quilteronavon and welcome to QCA. I don't know of any block swaps but I did want to say hello and welcome you to the group. Hope you'll visit often and tell us a little about yourself and your quilting.
I've never done a block swap so cannot help you there.
I do want to say Hi and welcome to QCA quilteronavo, I hope we will see more of you.

i don't know of any centralized block swaps, but i've been involved with two that blog members organized. it looks pretty easy to organize and execute but a lot of work. once you get all the rules in place and a group committed to the plan, you need a central person to collect and distribute, or you pair up people and they swap between themselves. or you could organize a round robin. i'm sure there are lots of ways to do it gini

There are all types of block swaps on the quilting forum on about.com.
I see that this is your first post and I would like to welcome you to the group. Hopefully you will drop in and chat with us. We all love meeting new people and learning about their quilting.
Don't know of any block swaps but I see that some of the other ladies have given you some suggestions.
Our QCA group just completed a successful fabric swap with more now in the works. Maybe it's time for someone here to advertise a block swap and see if there is interest.

There was talk of a block swap a while back. I think most members were apprehensive about making blocks for others. The fabric swaps are easier; less work, less pressure to send "perfect" blocks.
Maybe we should start a group for fabric swaps and just start new threads for the different themes.
