The Minneapolis Modern Quilters are putting together a new Swap and Challenge for February. If you don't know what a swap and challenge is let me explain it to you. Everyone brings the pre-determined fabric requirements to the meeting (in this case it's two or more fat quarters that "read" Black, White or Gray. We all swap our fabric with one another so that everyone ends up with a bit of everyone else's fabric. We then go home and make something.
Start with two (or more) fat quarters that "read" BLACK, WHITE or GRAY. Print should be in these colors, too. No solids, please.
Cut into strips that are 3 inches wide/ 20 inches long. You should end up with 5-6 strips per fat quarter.
We are swapping 10 strips - 5 from two fabrics. If you submit more, you may duplicate fabrics. (Each swapper will use at least two different fat quarters!) - You will get the same number of strips that you swap.
The swap will happen at the February meeting. If you are unable to be there, but want to swap, please send Elise Peters a email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and she will send you her mailing address. If you choose to participate this way you must send a return envelope and postage. All mail in strips should be received by Tuesday, February 15th.
Once you have received your swapped strips, add one additional SOLID fabric to finish the "top" of your project. (You may add others for your backing and binding!)
There are lots of ideas for black and white quilting projects on flickr!
Complete your top for the May meeting.
If you have questions about this swap-challenge, let me know! We are hoping to get at least 12 participants, but more would be great!
