    2014 Quilts For Quilters Swap - Signup has Closed

    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.

    **Requirements**
    * 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.



    *** To participate, please PM Yosamitesa with the following information by NOON (CST) on Friday, January 24th, 2014. Please do not apply if you have not finished/fullfilled your commitments in prior swaps. Incomplete sign-ups will not be accepted. Members will NOT be allowed to pick their swap partners.

    If my memory is working right, and it often times does not; last year quite a few signed up at the last minute. (I believe I was one of the late signer uppers.)

    Out of all the swaps, this one is simply the best! I have loved the last two. Unfortunately, I am working full-time and going to school full-time so my free time is incredibly limited, or I would most definitely sign up. I am going to be a lurker this year and enjoy watching everyone's creativity and talent! I hope everyone posts a lot of photos!!

    IrelandDrdagonQuilting, we just got stuck in Buffalo overnight because of the massive pile-up between here & Sheridan. Should have just stopped in Casper (like I wanted to).

    You should join in with us... (I'm sharing the peer pressure )

    I would do this but promised myself to use up my ufo's. I have a bunch of Christmas blocks I could put into a quilt if someone wanted a Christmas quilt as a trade. I know ugh who thinks of Christmas at this time of year but its in my box of to do's I want to kill my ufo's this year. So that is the only trade I could do if you find someone wants a sampler style red/green/white quilt then I would go for this Santas and angels and the likes. If not it ok too. Last swap was with Twinriverfarm and boy did she make me a gorgeous quilt. It is being well loved by my DH he has claimed it and uses it nightly while we watch tv She did amazingly beautiful work. if you haven't signed up for this swap I say take a look at the last one we did. the quilts were wonderful!

    I would love to have a Christmas quilt...since it is not due until August at would be a perfect time for a holiday quilt as you get ready to decorate. I too want to get my unfinished quilting projects done and have some lap quilts to donate to Meals on Wheels this year.
