Swap Fabric Placement Challenge

June 2022-November 2022

We hope all members will take advantage of this challenge to learn more about how Value, Contrast, Volume, and Scale of their fabrics affect the appearance and, perhaps, success of a quilt.


  • Participants will select ONE of the three quilt blocks presented by the Challenge Committee- Easy, Moderate or Advanced. You can right click on your selected block below then save to your device.

  • Then, taking the four fat quarters from our Inspiration Swap OR four fat quarters of their choice, make THREE (or four, if desired) of the block pattern selected from those four fabrics but SWAP the placement of the fabrics in each block. These can be downloaded from above.
  • These blocks will be due at the November meeting where we will showcase the results for all to appreciate.
  • Blocks may be presented unfinished OR finished as desired, e.g. table runner, mini quilts, charity quilt.
  • This is not a competition, but there may still be prizes!
  • Below are instructions on piecing quarter square triangles. These can be saved to your device by right clicking the image and choosing the save option.
