carol, you might want to ask the members of the applique group if they're interested in an applique swap

Carol W:

I love the idea of a State block swap!  A swap I would be interested in seeing here would be an applique (flowers, wreath, leaves, that kind of motif) block swap.  Any other appliquers interested?  Thinking next spring would be a good time for it.

Carol, I love the applique block swap idea, I would do that one.

Would there be an interest in a block of the month group?

I would be interested in block of the month but after the first of the year would be nice. I think that's a cool idea. Very clever.

I enjoy traditional block of the month groups and would love to join if this is what we're  discussing. 

I'm a tad confused though, since we're discussing this in the swap ideas thread... Would this be a block of the month swap?  Or a monthly block swap?  Or just a traditional block of the month? 

Apologies for my confusion and I appreciate any clarification others can provide!

Thanks very much.

This would be more of a group. What I was thinking is that the size of block and the type of fabric would be decided up front. Then each month one person would select a block for the group to make. The next month would be ask to pick another block. So at the end of the year of the year you would have a quilt. This would be more of a quilting bee and people could join in anytime. A 24/7 quilting bee lol

Good idea MelodyP,  I am in if / when this starts. It does make me wish that we could all be on Skype for a bit though. lol
