    Sign up time for the fourth doll quilt swap! Here are the details:

    Doll Quilt Swap #4

    DOLL QUILT SWAP GUIDELINES

    SIZE: from 12”x12” to 24”x24”…any size or shape in between.

    MATERIALS: natural fibers/cotton, wool, linen

    EMBELLISHMENTS: if you want to use them, feel free…beads, rickrack, buttons, doilies, ribbon, lace….anything or nothing at all.

    CONSTRUCTION: Pieced, appliquéd, wholecloth, or yo-yos; quilted by hand or machine; and bound.

    LABEL: It is recommended that you attach a label to the back of your quilt. I know, this can be a bit scary for some people though, so it will not be a requirement. A label is however a very nice addition to any handmade quilt. Whether or not you decide to label your quilt, please do include a note with your quilt with your quilting board name, real name and contact information (snail mail address and/or email address, etc. so that they can thank you).

    PARTNERS: You will be paired with a partner for this swap. You will make a quilt for your partner and your partner makes one for you. Feel free to discuss color considerations, likes and dislikes, etc. between yourselves. You will also be responsible for securing delivery addresses.

    DUE DATE: The deadline for all quilts to be sent is August 31, 2009.

    COMMUNICATION: If for any reason you cannot meet the deadline or you need to drop out of this swap, please let me know as soon as you know. If you communicate any setbacks with me I can make sure things work out favorably for your partner, no hard feelings.

    SIGN UP: Sign up begins today and ends Tuesday, August 4, 2009. I’ll assign partners after that date.

    If you would like to sign up, send me a PM or reply to this thread. Please let me know if you are willing to send internationally as we have several members outside of the US.

    Here are some links for ideas:

    Susic...they are really easy.
    Check out the pictures of them.
    They don't have to be intricate. Can be strips, blocks, anything you put together that you like and think your partner will like.
    What's best about this is....you can ask your partner what colors she likes, so that helps too! I didn't ask mine only because I wanted it to be a surprise for them and they loved them!

    You can peruse thru this thread and find some pics
