    Smile Sign Up for April 2013 Doll Quilt Swap Spring Has Sprung Closes March 31st Noon EST

    Spring Has Sprung!

    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

    Doll Quilt Swap #44 – April 2013

    Theme: Spring Has Sprung! I know I’m ready for Spring – aren't you? Yep. It’s time to tiptoe through the tulips. Do what you like – whether it’s appliqué, paper piecing, or any simple block or blocks in springy colors. Of course if you are a maniac, you can always piece something shaped like a spring. Have fun. As always, the theme is optional … but we think it’s more fun to play along.

    SIGN UP: Easy As 1-2-3 - 4
    1. To join the fun, just send me a PM no later than NOON (EST) on March 31, 2013
    Sorry but this month I am getting ready for my son's wedding so no late comers!

    2. You will not be able to sign up if you have any outstanding quilts from previous months – except for the current month.

    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 April 1st. Actually the evening of March 31st since April Fool’s Day is my wedding anniversary and I hope to be pleasantly occupied. But if I’m not I’ll be here and cranky! Find your partner at our Group Home here http://www.quiltingboard.com/groups/...group-g14.html

    Mailing Deadline: You must have your quilt in the mail no later than April 30th, 2013. 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.
    Feel the fear and do it anyway!

Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."
