April Friendship Triangle Exchange

Honey Sticks

Join us for another fun-filled triangle exchange with fellow quilters! The exchange will consist of 2 inch finished half-square triangles. Honey Bee will collect the triangles and return the same number of units that you turned in.

The rules are:

  • Must use a paper pieced triangle method, so all triangles are the exact size of 2 inch finished (2 1/5 inch unfinished).
  • Have a light and a dark fabric of good quality 100% cotton for contrast in your triangles.
  • Sew the triangles using a neutral cotton thread.
  • Cut the triangles apart, but do not remove the paper, the recepient will do the pressing and removing of paper.
  • Make as many half-square triangles as you like, but no more than 52 of the same two fabrics. Please group matching fabrics triangles together.
  • Place your triangles in a Ziploc back with your name and phone number.
  • Turn in the triangles at Honey Bee anytime before April 19, 2010
Honey Bee will have "Honey Sticks" available for purchase. Each stick consists of a light fabric, a dark fabric, and half-square triangle paper. Each stick makes 28 half-square triangle units.

The kick off party is April 24, 2010 at 9 am. You will get back your triangles and see the results of our instore challenge.
