Color BLOCK Swap Fall 1 (Orange, Black, Purple)

It's time! The sign up is LIVE for the round 1 of our Color Block Swap! We're starting with Halloween colors-purple, black, and orange.

Make sure check out this post for all the details of the swap.

To help get your creative juices flowing, here are some good examples of basic blender fabrics that work for our swap. Because we're doing Halloween colors, for this round I'll accept blenders that have a Halloween theme, if you choose. They still should read dominantly one color and have a small scale pattern. As always, they must be QUILTING QUALITY 100% COTTON. 

The oranges can range from light peach to dark pumpkin. Just make sure they don't read pink or red. 

Purples can range from dark plum to lavender. 

Blacks are pretty self-explanatory. You can range from the grunge black to black with a small scale print. Stay away from overly bold pattern or large scale repeats. 

Remember to post your fabric choices on Instagram by August 19th. Make sure you include the pattern name/designer and the appropriate hashtag (#colorblockswap, #orangeblockswap1, #purpleblockswap1, #blackblockswap1). 

Don't forget to check out our sponsor (@quilterssquare on Instagram)! Participants of the Color Block Swap will receive a coupon code for 25% off their swap fabric purchases. I can't wait to see what fabrics you choose!
