You will make any theme as long as it has to do with Harry Potter

For anyone that does not have a rotary cutter & ruler, please leave your squares a bit larger thank 10.5" so they can be squared up before being divided and sent on.

I am definitely in.

I'm just a bit confused - are we posting to all individuals or are we posting to a central location?

We've been notified by a moderator that we can't send to a central location.  I guess we missed that when we were going over the rules!

Shipping a first class envelope internationally to Australia is approximately $1.80(US), so sending one quilt square to you shouldn't be an issue for U.S. swappers.

Would we make the same quilt block for every member of our group, or different ones?
