During one of the the 2020 trunk show’s... Maudie Borget with Dave’s Bernina, shared a beautiful scrappy log cabin heart quilt. We fell in love with it and she has agreed to teach us all how to make the block! We thought it would be so fun to swap fabric with each other during the retreat to create fun blocks with fabric that is not just our own.

Here’s our vision…

1.Bring a gallon size zip-lock bag filled with 14- 1.5” X 10” strips of fabric (this is enough to create 1 block)

2. Drop off your bag at the registration desk

3. We will swap out the fabric and give it back to you during our Friday night evening activities


P.S. You can drop off as many bags as you would like!

Just a few disclaimers...

1. The fabrics can all be the same, or they can be a variety of fabrics.

2. There is no guarantee that you will get back any of the fabrics you brought, but it could happen

3. Please make sure to use quilt shop quality fabrics

4. Please make sure to write your name on your zip-lock bag

To ensure that your quilt blocks turn out the way you want it, you will need to

provide your own background fabric. Please cut it as follows…

One- 3 1/2" square and Four-1 1/2" squares per scrappy block.


Background fabric can be anything you want.


We recommend using low volume prints so that your scrappy heart really pops!


How it looks is up to you! 


That is perfectly fine, we will show everyone how to make the block as a fun, group demo. You will get the info and can keep it for later. Either way it’s always fun to learn something new.



The Kristine ID Wallet is great for taking your essentials with you wherever you go. It has a spot for your ID and credit cards, cash and change. You can add your keys to the key ring too! You have the option of adding a wrist strap or lanyard, so you’re ready to go anywhere. It may be a little more work, but we cannot wait to see the cute styles you create to swap! Drop these darling wallets off at the registration desk when you check in.


We will be swapping these on Wednesday evening!




You are going to love recycling your candy or cookie bag wrappers with this fun swap, it’s so SWEET! Head to the grocery store, buy the candy you like, eat it all…then use the free pattern from Missouri Star Quilt Co. to make a cute candy wrapper zipper pouch. This tutorial shows you a more “quilty” version using iron-on vinyl, so please use this as your guide. You will be saving all your left over candy and cookie bags after you start making these!! Make your bag at least a medium size bag and feel free to add a treat to the bag for our swap.
