    January 2013 Doll Quilt Swap Sign Up

    Sign up time for the January 2013 Quilting Board 41st Doll Quilt Swap!

    Everyone is welcome to join us no matter what your skill level may be. Making and sharing doll quilts offers a wonderful opportunity to try new techniques, use up scraps in your stash – or an excuse to buy new fabric – and it’s a great way to make new quilty friends.

    Here are the details
    . I know they are long and boring, but please read them. Really!

    As always, rules for this swap also agree with the general guidelines for all Quilt Board Swaps – Read here RULES FOR SWAPS AND SIMILAR ACTIVITIES - Updated 8 December 2010

    January 2013 - Doll Quilt Swap (Krystyna is hoping to be back as hostess in Feb!)

    Theme: Three Colors!

    Now with that being said, there are many choices you can do using three colors. You could do a holiday theme such as New Years Day,Valentine's Day, Mardi Gras, and use only THREE COLORS. You can ask your partner what theme they would like to receive or what colors. And as always, optional quilters choices. In all instances, please communicate with your partners!

    SIGN UP: Easy As 1-2-3 - 4
    1. To join the fun, just send me (quiltingkrazy) a PM no later than NOON (EST) on
    December 31, 2012
    2. You will not be able to sign up if you have any outstanding quilts from previous months
    3.Please let me know whether you are able to swap internationally as we have a few members who are outside the USA.
    4.Let me know you have read the guidelines and make sure your QB mailbox isn’t full.

    Partner Assignment: Partners will be assigned on December 31st. Find your partner at our Group Home here http://www.quiltingboard.com/groups/...group-g14.html - If there are any problems, please send me a PM.

    Mailing Deadline: You must have your quilt in the mail no later than Decemer 30th. If you do not think you can meet that deadline, you might want to wait a month or two until your schedule frees up and you don’t feel pressured.


    Doll quilts can be between 12”x12” to 24”x24” or 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: Most participants use cotton, but you can use any other natural fiber like wool, linen or silk.

    EMBELLISHMENTS: Let your creativity rule. Add beads, buttons, ribbon, lace, rickrack, or whatever if you feel like it. Or add nothing at all. It’s up to you.

    CONSTRUCTION: Pick your technique. Doll quilts may be pieced, appliquéd, wholecloth, quilted by hand or quilted by machine. All quilts should have binding.

    LABEL: Please add a label or sign your quilt on the back with your name and the date. It is a wonderful record of your work and years from now, it will help your partner remember who made this magnificent work of art! If your quilt is reversible and you don’t want to sign it, please include a card or attach a removable tag with your Quilting Board name or real name if different.

    MANNERS: Don’t for get to thank your partner. A simple post on the thread for the month is terrific, but a PM is nicer still. Please leave feedback for your partner.

    HELP YOUR HOSTESS KEEP TRACK: When you mail off your quilt, please send me a PM. Also send one when you receive a quilt you’re your partner. This will help me keep track and to ensure that everyone receives a quilt.

    PHOTOS: At the Quilting Board we love photos! A big part of the doll quilt fun is seeing what everyone has created, but as with most things in life, there is a little etiquette to follow. Usually the receiver will post a photo, but not everyone has a camera, so please photograph your quilt before you send it just in case. Don’t post a photo until your partner receives your quilt so the surprise won’t be spoiled. If you cannot post a photo, please ask your partner to do so.

    PARTNERS: Once sign up has ended, I will assign partners. I will try to pair you with someone you haven’t had as a swap partner previously. You will make a quilt for your partner and s/he will make one for you. Please PM your partner to share physical addresses. Do not post addresses on this thread. Although there is a theme and it is often sender’s choice, it is always nice to ask if your partner has any preferences.

    COMMUNICATION: If something unexpected comes up and for any reason you cannot meet the deadline or need to drop out of the swap, please let me know as soon as you know. If you take the time to communicate any difficulties, I can make sure things work out favorably for you and your partner with no hard feelings as a result. If, however, you just disappear off the face of the earth, you will not be permitted to participate in future swaps until you make good on your commitment.

    DOLL QUILT GROUP – Besides this thread, there is a Doll Quilt group on the Quilting Board. There you can upload photos, start discussions on ideas for themes, share resources about techniques for doll quilts and other mini quilts, and whatever you want to do. It’s your group, so you decide!

    Your right hard to mail Dec 30th when we get our partners Dec 31st lol.

    I would love to play and am excited to find out what my partner would like out of the three choices. I wanted to start now but will wait to see what they would like that will make it fun. Good call HobbyKat.

    Krystyna .. I was wondering as you have gone through such a major life experience.. do you think it will affect your style of quilts/art? You are forever changed from that hurricane. I think it would maybe change your style in some way maybe colors, designs.. I know dumb question. Also that Conneticut quilter and her friends who gifted you with the machine and tools is an absolute angel. She gave you back a purpose other than rebuilding your home. You can rebuild you again and that is such a good thing. Thank you Conneticut Quilters. That is not even adequit wording. Wow. The peope here are amazingly good to each other aren't they?

    Merry Christmas group. This is going to be a good month for quilting (counting on the fact the Mayans are very wrong)
    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.
