Garden Maze block: LAST CALL

Wow, what a month this has been!  Yea, I know it's only the middle of the month, but it took all my energy just to surface here.  It is only a matter of time before the next wave takes me under & then it will be September.

So, to be quick & yet informative:  the August Facebook Quilt Block Swap group block (Garden Mazes, directions here) is still happening.  Blocks are due in-house the last Saturday of this month, which means a week from this Saturday or Saturday August 27th, 2011. 

If you are not part of the Facebook group, you need only ask to join (because people's home addresses are printed for swapping purposes it is a semi-closed group).   Search on "quilt Block Swap" &   If you are not interested in joining on Facebook but do want to swap, just leave a message here with an e-mail address so I can send you the instructions. 

I can see from the Blogger STATS page, the October block is getting  A LOT of traffic, which is great, but the August bock has not closed yet.  Yes, it is on the large side but the center square is any 6" (finished) 4-patch or 9-patch of your choosing so long as one of the fabrics used has a floral pattern visible somewhere in the block itself.  As for the maze border, one of the two fabrics used should have some green, it doesn't have to read-as-solid or even be all green.  If this block cannot be cut from the average scrap-bag, I really don't know what block could be.

As for what to do with the blocks you get back:  six of them (five swapped & one kept) would make a simple table runner; a few more could be a wide border to a larger quilt with a garden-y-themed center panel. & as always, a sixth block sent with your five-to-swap will go to one person in the group making a quilt for her community (I will start saying "his or her" when we get the first male 6th block quilt maker.
