Ashley Hough and special guest Andrea Smith of Happy Cloud Creations discuss our newest FREE quilt block challenge: The Happy Block Swap, in this month’s Q&A. They address many questions related to the challenge, as well as general quilting questions. Thanks to everyone who has already joined the Block Swap! Have you signed up? It’s not too late.

I enjoy listening to this video. I’m a quilter who’s motto is ‘It’ll never be noticed on a galloping horse, and that’s the only kind I ride’. However being a very experienced block swapper I disagree with the advice you gave. If you are not swapping your blocks being consistently the wrong size isn’t that big a problem. If you are swapping your blocks MUST be close to the right size or your blocks may not be usable to your partner. It’s worth it to take the time and making sure your blocks are 15 1/2 by 15 1/2 or whatever size is called for. Have fun ladies.
I have an AccuQuilt GO! Cutter. Is this pattern compatible with my GO! Cutter.
Yes, you may be able to cut out some of the pieces using your AccuQuilt Go, depending on the die sizes that you have, however this pattern is not designed around the AccuQuilt cutting system like our last challenge was.
Hi ladies!! I’ve never done a swap either but it sounds fun!
