What are your associations with this element?
Quilters from around the world are invited to join the second International Block Swap (IBS2). Make 9 quilt blocks with a water theme and send them to the Munich office. All participants will be grouped into teams and the blocks will be swapped within the team. You will get back your own block plus 8 different blocks from quilters around the world. Blocks will be sent to our Munich office.
Quilters may also take part in creating a "Water for the World" community quilt by creating a 10th block with the water theme. All the donated blocks will be assembled into a single quilt.
To take part, please download the enclosed PDF flyer below and fill in the registration form. Registration is $25 for US participants and all directions are included in the flyer.

- Sew 9 identical RECTANGULAR blocks 6" x 18" or 15 cm x 45 cm plus a seam allowance of 1/4“ or 0.75 cm on each side.
- The predominant colour MUST be BLUE (ie more than 50% of the surface should be blue). More colors MAY be used. Please use only good quality, prewashed cotton fabric.
- You may use any textile technique or any block pattern. If you use embellishments, please make sure that these don‘t exceed a depth of 1/4" or 0.5 cm and that the block can still be quilted.
- Please enclose 9 picture postcards of your town/region/country in your block package. You may use the postcard to convey as much information about yourself as you wish (eg hobbies, family, e-mail and/or mail address etc.).
Swapped blocks will be mailed to participants in January 2014.
