Bloomin Basket Block Swap

Updated 8/28/2012 – DO NOT mail your swap package to me with any delivery signature requirement – no signature upon delivery, no return reciept, not certified, etc. – you get the idea.   

 Swap packages are starting to arrive – I haven’t opened any of them yet, I’d be oohing and aahing over blocks and  I still need to get the rest of my own blocks finished.  Below is the list of packages I have received so far.  I’ll update it every other day or so  – so if you have mailed a package and it doesn’t show up here yet, check back in a day or two. 

So far I have received packages from: (list below updated 9/13/12)

Vida in Van Couver, WA   /    MiMi in Holden, ME   / Michele in Stonington, CT  /  Nancy in Surprise, AZ   /  Dana in New Iberia, LA  / Bettie in Tutwiler, MS /  Sue in Sandwich, IL  / Gladys in Colonial Heights, VA  / Martin in Springfield, OH  / Terry in Canada  / Heidi in Ferndale, WA  / Janet in Beatrice, NE /  Karen in Boise, ID  /  Peggy in Valley Center, KS  / Ruth in Logwood, FL / Jo Anne in Hebron, MD / Scarlett in Novinger, MO / Deli Marbun in Indonesia / Edie in Medicine Hat AB Canada


Interested in a block swap?  I’m hosting a block swap on The Quilting Post and if any blog readers want to join in, the more the merrier.  We’ll be swapping Bloomin Basket blocks – they are paper pieced and very easy to do especially since there are no separate sections to join together – it’s paper pieced all as one section.

   You can find all the swap rules HERE  If, after reading them you want to sign up, just email me your name, email address, and guestimate at now many blocks you think you will make since you don’t have access to our database.  I’ll add you to my list of swappers and let you know on June 1, or the next day or two, if we have met our minimum number of swappers and if so, at that time I will email you the pattern pdf to use for the blocks.  To sign up — emai me at

Please sign up only if you truly plan to follow through with the swap — the last swap I opened up to include blog readers also – nearly all the bloggers didn’t send in any blocks or let me know they were dropping out.  You can’t have a good swap if there’s no commitment to follow through and you lose a number of participants.  🙂  And I love all the variety of blocks you can get from a good swap!

  1. I LOVE the basket fabric! This looks like a fun project while we are waiting for Christmas Town! when I signed up I used my other email address, LOL.

  2. I sent you an email, but I thought I’d leave the info here, too. I would like to be in the swap and plan to make 10 blocks.

  3. I’m not confident with paper piecing, but I love the block so I will certainly give it my best.
    Thanks for designing this great bock and for coordinating the swap.
