emc1118, Melinda did a beautiful job, it is gorgeous. Hope all is better for her. TwinriverFarm is right , no one left out. I don't have one to give, but I have fabric and time. So if all else, we could all make a block, someone put together and then she could have a gift from all.

Oh man that quilt is stunning! lots and lots of love put into that for sure. You are one lucky lady to receive such a beautiful quilt!

I have not received my quilt however that said it was made with love the quilt I made and perhaps Kelly took a workin progress photo because like an idiot I did not. I made a Christmas quilt for Tam Moo and I think it will get much love. I do not feel the need to receive a quilt in return. Its ok to gift and that is what this is all about. I am sure she has her reasons for not writing. Life happens to all of us. I thank everyone for being here, for the friendship gifted and the love of quilting we all share. This is enough for me

I agree w/Elisabrat. I do not need a quilt either. Besides I would not feel right about taking a quilt when I did not give someone a quilt. I'm OK with it. I enjoyed the process and got a quilt done that I probably would not have otherwise

This is the only picture I have of the quilt. I do have to admit that I did not do this quilt alone. My mother, Lestrong601, helped me with it. Lots of love, time and laughs were put in to this. I adore the quilt you made for me emc1118. I have it on my side of the bed it helps keep me warm. Thanks for all your love you put into it Libby

This is an amazing quilt that emc1118 made for me. I LOVE everything about it. Thank you so much. The extra special treat too was wonderful. I have already found some patterns I want to do.

Wow, Melinda I love the quilt you made - is that your own pattern or is one you purchased? If you purchased it can you share the name of the pattern. Love the quilt you received in exchange. All the quilts were over the top beautiful.

QUOTE=Yosamitesa;6459578]Welcome to the 2014 Quilts For Quilters Swap!!! This swap is all about us!!! Fabulous quilters making and swapping a fully completed, lap-sized quilt with other fabulous quilters!!! This swap will be limited to the first 30 swappers that sign-up or January 24th, whichever comes first!!!

***Guidelines & Deadlines***
Sign up closes for this swap on Friday, January 24th, 2014 at noon (CST) OR once 30 swappers have signed up. Names will be sent out no later than Thursday, January 30th, 2014. Quilts must be delivered, fully finished, by Monday, August 1st, 2014. THIS IS A DEADLINE NOT A GUIDELINE Please do not participate if you believe you cannot fulfill this time frame commitment.
This swap will be a partnered swap. You will work with your partner to determine colors, style, etc. Size: 45” x 60” up to 60” x 60” – Please make sure it is not smaller than 45” x 60”. --Use only 100% cotton fabric.

Design and method will be up to the creator; however, since this is something that will probably be used, making sure that the quilt is washable on at least a gentle cycle. Good grade cottons only no homespun or non-cotton fabrics in this swap please. You should make something you would like to receive. Take your time; there is no rush to get it out fast. It’s better slow but steady and you will be pleased with what you send and your partner will be thrilled to receive it!

See http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm for general swap rules.

* I am required to insist that participants send me a monthly PM or email to verify that they are still active in this swap and are working on their promised project. Also, participants must have weekly contact with their partner to verify that they are still active in this swap and are working on each other’s 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 by Monday, August 1st, 2014 shall be deemed “late” and risk receiving Negative [Swap] Feedback to their account.

* Please keep in touch with your partner and me as required. Please let us know right away if something happens that will interfere with your ability to complete your project on time. *****COMMNICATION IS KEY!!!*****

* 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.

These will be assigned at random by me.***

I love mine. It's warm and snuggly. It's in my 'reading' area, although, it's more like a napping area now. This was a fun swap!
