    Rhonda's Very First Wall Hanging Swap!!!!

    Welcome!!

    We are starting a new swap with Wall Hangings!

    Here is how the Swap works!

    June - You make one quilt block of your choice
    July - You make one quilt block of your choice
    Aug. - You make one quilt block of your choice
    Sept - You make one quilt block of your choice
    Oct. Construct your quilt blocks into a wall hanging

    Oct 31st - All wall hangings that are posted as pics will be entered
    into the drawing
    If posting a picture is a problem for you let me know and I will help

    Nov 1st - I will draw names and addresses and send each quilter
    the address they will send their wall hanging to.

    Please Post Pics of: Not required but this would be great if you can

    Your Fabric you are going to use or thinking of using
    Embellishments you are using
    Progress pictures would be nice!!
    Each month post a pic of the quilt block you made
    You can post pictures of the quilt blocks you are thinking of doing also

    I would like to see some sharing of ideas and conversation along the way!!
    That is the really fun part!!

    Requirements:

    100% Cotton
    Prewashing or not is up to you

    Sign up:

    Just post on the thread if you are willing to enter a wall hanging.
    There will be no end to the sign up.
    If anyone wants to catch up and send in a wall hanging by Oct 31st that is fine with me.

    Size and Type of Quilt Block:

    A wall hanging should be smaller than a lap quilt but larger than a mug rug.
    You can use any type of quilt block and any style any colors.
    Ebellishments are a fun way to add to your wall hanging if you like

    Layout and Quilting Your Wall Hanging:

    You can put your top together any way you want to. You can add more blocks
    the same size or smaller or anything you like.
    Setting design can be as simple as sewing your quilt blocks together or adding
    sashing between blocks or you can use your creativity and make up anything
    you can dream up.

    You can quilt it or tie it or any method you want to use.
    If you have anyone else quilt it please remember to give credit where it is due.

    I hope you decide to join us and have a lot of fun!!

    This sounds fun...my only concern is dh and my only son is getting married in July, which is awesome...and keeping me busy! I am so tempted to sign up, but I don't want to commit to something I can't finish...lets see, I bet I can do June and July blocks end of July, then go from there...lol...So, lets throw caution to the wind, and sign me up!

    Congrats to your son and you on the upcoming wedding!! It's such an exciting time!

    Thanks for joining!! You actually have until the end of Oct to get your wall hanging done and a picture turned in. So if you need to rearrange your time to do it that isn't a problem for me.

    This sounds like it would be fun. I have never made a wall hanging before. I would like to join in.

    I've never done anything as small as a wallhanging but count me in too! My weakness is the actual quilting part so I need to start practicing....
    Mistakes are just opportunities to invent a new quilting technique!

    I love wall hangings and making one for a swap sounds like fun to me. This would be a good time to make a Thanksgiving or Christmas one. So, add me to the list!
