    HOME DÉCOR SWAP #2 - entry closes April 19, 2013

    For this partnered swap, the theme is HOME DÉCOR.

    Signups close: April 19, 2013

    Ship by date: June 17, 2013 (Delivery confirmation required)

    How it works:

    *This is a partnered swap for all skill levels.

    *You will pick a room of your home in which you’d like a homemade quilted or quilt related surprise and give me your top 2 wish list items and your swap partner will decide on an item for you, but what item you'll receive will remain a secret until you get your package.

    *Please make sure that all items have been prewashed and are machine washable on at least the gentle cycle, except wall hangings.

    *All projects must include at least 2 different fabrics.

    *if you prefer to receive something gender specific, please add that info to your selected room when you send your info.

    *Partners will be completely random, outside of allergy concerns.

    *PM me when you ship or receive your item

    Suggestions for each room:

    By all means you can pick anything else that goes in that room that you wish, and a wall hanging is appropriate for almost any room:

    >Living room: Candle mats, pillow covers, remote holder, mug rugs

    >Dining room: Placemats, table runner, hot pads

    >Kitchen: Insulated teapot cover, bar runner, potholders/oven mitts, casserole carrier, can/mug cozy, apron, grocery totes

    >Adult Bedroom: Nightstand mats, pillow covers, bed runner, bed caddy (to hold a book/magazine, reading classes, and remotes)

    >Child (specify gender and age): Pillow covers, pillowcase, jewelry or bow holders, doll quilts, bed caddy, travel case for art pad and crayons or pencils, toys, child’s apron

    >Baby/Toddler (specify gender and age, if known): toys, burp cloths, bibs, busy books, play mats, car seat quilts, changing mats/kits

    >Bathroom: Tank runner, candle mat, makeup bag, toiletry bag, decorative towels, travel jewelry bag

    >Sewing room/Office: Scissor case, scraps/trash bag, sewing caddy, ironing board cover, mug rug

    >Other: Tote bag, quilted purse, purse organizer, hand warmers, cell phone cover, eye/sunglass case, legal pad cover, checkbook cover

    I am required to insist that participants send me a monthly PM to verify that they are still active in this swap and are working on their promised project.

    I am required to insist that participants notify me as soon as they have finished their quilt and are ready to mail it.

    Once I have received notice that both partners are done and ready to mail, I will send both a PM to let them know it’s time to mail.

    I am required to insist that all participants send me verification of shipment, to include tracking information.

    Participants are required to ensure packages will not arrive “postage due.”

    Any and all other fees, such as import duties, taxes, etc imposed by the recipient’s government are the sole responsibility of the recipient.


    Absent legitimate and reported mitigating circumstances, participants who have not fulfilled their obligation to ship by June 19, 2013 shall be deemed “late” and risk receiving Negative [Swap] Feedback.

    Please keep in touch with me as required as well as your partners. Please let me know right away if something happens that will interfere with your ability to complete your project on time.

    Swappers should treat each other as friends and focus on the fun. So … please be prepared to be flexible, patient and understanding if necessary and appropriate.

    What to submit:
    Board Name:
    Real Name:
    Address:
    City:
    State:
    Zip:
    Phone #: (this is for my use only in the event that a problem should arise)

    Please read the swap rules at http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm.

    Once you PM me your info to join, please post in the group so that your swap members can get to know a little about your tastes and needs and the anticipation can begin!

    I will play again. It's going to be for Beau this time he is 2 1/2. I have such a mish mash of stuff in my bedroom and living area, hopefully I can redo these rooms soon.

    I figured 3 weeks would be enough time for everyone to receive their packages from the last one and decide on what they'd like to ask for. Note that the completion deadline is on a Monday this time. That'll give everyone a final push weekend to finish up this time, which some of us needed the first go around. So, in the meantime, what's everyone working on?

    Ditto! I know I want to be in, but I'm too tired to think straight now as to what I want!

    Yeah, I'm going to work on a couple little projects too. I have to make a wallet for my best friend and maybe another for someone she knows. I also have to make a tissue box holder with built-in trash receptacle for my friend's mother-in-law that will hang on her walker. I don't have a pattern for it though, so I've been putting it off, lol.

    Just google it and you'll get lots of ideas and free patterns for the trash bag. No mail today, so haven't sent in my PM yet hopefully soon. LeBrat is a little better tonight and in better spirits. Pending tests results, she may be able to go home tomorrow, will know in the morning.
