    I enjoyed the last quilt swap so much, but I have to pass on this one. I have too many swaps in the works and have to make my soon to be born granddaughter a quilt and 2 of my daughters quilts before summer. I sure wish it had started July 1 then I could have joined. Oh well, next one. It was a wonderful experience for me.

    Quick pit stop (on long drive home) allowed me to update my list of applications; as of this timestamp:

    13 signed up; 7 openings remain.

    I sent in mine... I am excited! I challenged myself on the last swap, and actually was proud of what I did accomplish and my partner enjoyed it. You also get to make a new friend!

    Status of Registrations

    Okay... back home and organized... and reviewed all your applications. I'm SO excited again! Can't wait to start making matches, but I'm going to hold off until I have all 20 (or January 15, whichever comes first).

    The following people are confirmed in the swap:

    1. jclinganrey
    2. nclauri
    3. nexxus831
    4. lovngrandma
    5. TwinRiversFarm
    6. mindless
    7. nursebonnie
    8. leakus
    9. linny
    10. zzmom
    11. Yosamitesa
    12. Tam...Moo
    13. IrelandDragonQuilting
    14. vanogay

    The following people have incomplete registrations-- typically I still need an email address or phone number for you. I can't confirm you until I have all information. Reminder: I will only share this info with your partner; it's required in case we can't reach you by QB's PM system. (Lesson learned from last year's swap.)

    15. roseirish48
    16. elisabrat

    NOTE: A bit over 1/3 are repeat swappers. (Welcome back!)



    Assuming the last three get me their contact info, we only have FOUR (count 'em) slots left. (Unless I decide to be a softy and let more people in... ;-)

    And a little bit of inspiration. Here's the gallery of quilts from last year's swap (I *think* you all should be able to access it):

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/groups/...res-page1.html

    And here's a map of "where" we are so far... nice distribution, I think, across the continental US (though the eastern seaboard is a bit under-represented). Note, no one outside of the US yet... (mmm... I thought I'd heard from a Canadian...)

    Just sent the information to a friend who is also on this board. Perhaps she'll join us. I'll keep tabs to see if she does.

    I realize that in the opening post, the original motivation for this swap was left out. I started this swap last year because of a post from a quilter who was a bit sad about the fact that she never received a quilt although she gave many away. So this is a swap where we make a quilt for another quilter.

    Since we're so close to a final cohort, I will update the map once we've got our final group together.

    Just sent in my pm to join swap, I am really excited. I have had to look ahead and see if it was possible and finally decided to go for it. I am looking forward to getting to know my sp and hopefully making them a quilt they will like.

    I tried looking at the photos of the last swap and it says you have to be a member of the group to look.

    Okay, we've reached 20 -- a full two weeks before the deadline.

    Here's what I'm going to do: I will continue to take registrations (please use the form on the opening post of this thread) and create a waiting list. Depending on how many more come in, I may increase the number of participants.

    Thanks.

    And Happy New Year!

    I am excited too! and ready to go go go! I am excited to make a treat for someone who will appreciate the effort that went into it. I am not great but I do quilt with a lot of heart. It gives me real joy to play with other quilters and this will be so much fun. Question to previous players? did you show your work in progress in total to your partner or was it a suprise the whole product. are we sharing this is the fabric I chose for you? these are the blocks or block I made .. or is it more a secret? I want to play correctly! WOW lots of west coast players! middle America where are you? Alaska or Hawaii are you in? NO international players yet? Did you say we have a male player?
