Group Description

The original Padula group on Topica is frought with technical difficulties. This group is a sister site for those who are having difficulty posting and/or receiving messages through original Padula. Also, this is a great place to post your photos!

Our homepage photo was hooked by Joan (fishgirl), and is a Need'l Love design called "French Urn."

A. Our Hit n Miss #3, Monochromatic, just ended, and I hope Teda posts some photos here for us to see all the ways we interpreted Monochromatic.

B. Quilt Block swap: Deadline June 15, 2008, Swap Leader: Jo-Anne Harris
Size: 1 foot by 1 foot
Theme: a hooked quilt block
Deadline for the first piece: June 15
Deadlines after that will be: Aug 31, November 31, Feb 28

The differences: No binding of any sort allowed; and, you can submit as many hooked quilt blocks as you would like and you will receive a block back for every one you submit.

The intention: The swap will run as long as there is interest. If you are only able to participate in one quilt block swap you can take your quilt block and make it in to a pillow or add a braided edge and use it on a table etc. etc. If you're able to swap 4 or 6 blocks you can sew them together into a rug and then bind it and you've got a 2 X 2 or a 2 X 3 foot rug. If you go crazy and submit 24 blocks you will have 24 blocks back and can make any number of combinations or rug sizes. That's the reason for not binding the block - we want to be able to sew them together into a larger rug or a wall hanging. Then, you can choose binding that will pull the whole rug together.

With each submission I will ask you to send me the following information:
the cut
the type of backing
the name of the quilt pattern

and, I also want to know if there are any colours you absolutely hate so I can try to avoid them for you. The blocks should be sent to me in Toronto, please include $5 return post
