    Smile February 2012 Doll Quilt Swap (No Theme, Sender's Choice)

    February 2012 Doll Quilt Swap

    Sign up time for the Quilting Board's 31st doll quilt swap. Here are the details:

    Doll Quilt Swap #31 -- February 2012
    No theme, sender's choice. All levels of quilters are welcome. We were all beginners once and doll quilts are a great way to practice skills and/or learn new techniques. The doll quilt swap is always fun and stress free! Newbies are encouraged to join us. You'll only be a newbie once, because this swap may become addictive. Please read through the guidelines if this is your first swap.

    DOLL QUILT SWAP GUIDELINES

    SIZE: from 12”x12” to 24”x24”…any size or shape in between. If your finished quilt measures 24" x 26", or 11" x 13" it's fine. No worries or excessive rules for this swap.

    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; quilted by hand or machine; and bound.

    LABEL: It is recommended that you attach a label to the back of your quilt. A label is a nice addition to any handmade quilt. You can even sign the back of your quilt with your name and date. Whether or not you decide to label your quilt, please do include a note with your quilt with your Quilting Board name so that your partner can thank you.

    MANNERS: Please remember to thank your partner. Just a simple post is great. It also lets me know you've received a quilt so I can mark my records and make sure everyone gets a quilt. If you are unable to post a picture, please ask your partner to do so. Much of the fun is seeing everyone's creations.

    PARTNERS: You will be paired with a partner for this swap. You will make a quilt for your partner and your partner will make a quilt for you.

    DUE DATE: The deadline for all quilts to be sent is February 29, 2012. It's leap year, so we get an extra day! If this deadline seems tight for you, or you have a busy month, consider making a quilt for the next swap and having it ready to go. You'll get two months to create and less pressure.

    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 you and your partner, no hard feelings.

    SIGN UP: Sign up begins today and ends January 31, 2012. I’ll assign partners after that date.

    If you would like to sign up, you can respond to this thread or PM me. Please let me know if you are willing to send internationally as we have a few swappers outside of the US. International partners are the best!

    Here are some links of our past swaps:

    January Swap: January 2012 Doll Quilt Swap -- Show Us Where You're From
    November Swap: November 2011 Doll Quilt Swap
    October Swap: October 2011 Doll Quilt Swap

    Looking forward to another fun swap!
