    Anastasia’s Table Topper/Runner Swap -- Closed

    Anastasia’s Table Topper/Runner Swap

    This Swap will close February 5th.

    Welcome to my corner. This is a Table Topper or Table Runner swap.

    A Table Topper would be any shape that would be a centerpiece; this should be a minimum size of 16" across the longest point. For instance, I made a hexagon table topper and it is 16" from one corner to another at its widest point and each of its six sides are 8".
    A Table Runner should be a minimum size of 12"x28". Table runners are typically longer than they are wide.

    How it works:
    This swap will be a partnered swap. You will work with your partner to determine colors and sizes that will work with them. THE THEME IS SPRING.
    Design and method will be up to the creator but since this is something that will be on a table and likely spilled on, make sure whatever you make is washable on at least a gentle cycle.
    Please PM me with the following information by February 5th. I will then match up names and get them returned to you by February 10th. You will have until March 15th to mail the finished product.

    Board Name:
    Real Name:
    Address:
    City:
    State:
    Zip:
    Phone #: (this will NOT be given to your partner, this is for my use only in the event that a problem should arise)
    Do you have any allergies:
    Can you ship international:
    Do you have the ability to post pictures:

    It is encouraged and acceptable to post pictures of fabric choices, progress. I would like some lively conversation; someone has to keep me awake through midterms and finals.

    Please notify me as soon as possible if you feel you cannot complete your obligation. Please don’t sign up if you don’t think you can achieve a finished product in the time allotted.

    People who fail to follow-through and do not notify me will be banned from any of my future swaps (should there be any) and your name may be given to other swap hosts. Obviously, things happen in life and I will certainly consider that, but you must communicate. I reach out fairly regularly to check on progress so there is no excuse for not telling me if there might be a delay.

    So jump on board everyone and join the fun!

    Now for the legalese.

    ****Please make sure to read the general rules that apply to all swaps here at the Quilting Board:http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm ****

    I am required to insist that participants send me a monthly PM to verify that they are still active in this swap and are working on their 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 to ship by March 15th shall be deemed “late” and risk receiving Negative [Swap] Feedback.

    Please keep in touch with me as required. Please let me know right away if something happens that will interfere with your ability to complete your project on time.

    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.

    So this time, since we're not asked to give decor color hints, we can start as soon as we decide we're in!

    I need color Jaba! anyone suprise me? UGH everyone hates that one. people speak loud and clear on your hopes color wise. it is so much more fun to make something you know might actually be liked.

    color oh dear.. I think lilacs. My mom had lilacs planted outside our livingroom widows. I loved the smell of them. Boy she always had a magnificent garden full of flowers, spring summer. oodles of flowers fruit trees blossoming in spring wow what a move back in time. I never realized how many hours she spent there. She oil painted, cooked gourmet foods, sewed like no tomorrow, knit with her eyes closed. wow she gave all of us a bit of each gift. I sew and cook, my one sis is a master gardner, makes natural soaps she sells at williamsburg festivals .. she paints oil. A lil sis who scrapbooks and crafts and an older who is bigtime into gourmet and gardening. You see these are precious gifts. a way of continuing on. So.. for me.. how about lilacs or tulips or hyachynths or well flowers?? how about flowers. oh parnter of mine maybe that is easy. love the theme anastasia. ready set go!
    oh yes hello Jaba and Tracibug. welcome back! this is going to be fun.

    I guess I'm number 5 - good thing I learned to count; I had a lot of fun doing the last swap - I couldn't let this one go by without participating. I too love to garden - not even close to master status - just a dabbler/tinker - as they say a jill of all trades and master of none.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    My husband and I were married while we were on a business trip to Ottawa, Ontario two years ago come May. It was during the tulip festival... I've not really gone all cutesy with this one as it wasn't our first so something with tulips would be nice. White ones, if possible, red and purple accents.

    Well, I'm in. By my count, guess I'll be the first one on the second hand (number 6 - unless you have more than 5 fingers on the first hand).

    I found something Jaba that I think you would love. I have it waiting until perhaps I get your name as a Secret Pal or perhaps as the table swap partner. With all the swaps you and I participate in, perhaps it will happen soon. Now you can wonder...

    Okay, I am throwing caution and sanity to the wind (hmm...must have sanity to toss it, tho...) and signing up again...this will force me to get over there and start playing with my new machine...and also on this one I am pledging that part of the quilting will be fmq and I will not revert back to hand quilting!!! Um, probably....

    Kiffie, your hand quilting was so adorable on my runner! I took it to work with me today and both the ladies in my office were so jealous!

    Ana, feel free to pop over to my swap and post a link! It'll be nice to see your "face in the place!"

    hey Anastasia has a face! she does not. fooling me again dustysmom. And lovely wedding photo I have tulip fabric but its not white its black with red tulips or its white with pink and purple and I think coral tulips on it. very pretty stuff. I am thinking the black one is too dark for spring its a good deep romantic thing but not all spring long. Who doesnt want a spring one btw? if you dont yell ok as your signing up say hey love it sign me up oh oh yeah I really dont like spring and flowers and happy thoughts and yeah yell. lol its me guys.. if you want serious talk to those .. other guys all around me.

    hand quilting? sure take my teeth out with carving knives while your at it. oh and I will paper piece while its happening. oh uh NO. I like stitching squares together by hand but the actual quilting. ugh. come on over to the darker side K the one with electricity and .. machines. that thing you paid good money for. try it it doesnt hurt at all and look at all the time you will have to sew more things for swaps now that your using that machine. You can even name it if you like as you become closer friends.

    do you name your machines ladies? mine is called..machine. I dont have a name. it hates me I know it does.

    I think my machine needs a name too. I think I shall name her Evelyn after my gramma. She's the reason I started sewing again, and the reason I wanted to learn to quilt to begin with years ago. She's also the one who taught me to crochet. Hard to believe she's been gone almost 6 months. This time last year I was preparing to go visit her over spring break. Mother had to remind her who I was, she thought mother was my aunt, and she tried to pick up my boyfriend (that's Gramma for ya, lol), but I still loved seeing her. She gave me a crocheted butterfly while I was there, which I keep in my nightstand drawer. If I know her, she's probably somewhere crocheting more baby things and trying to figure out how she can get an angel to come off their halo so she can use it for a crafting project, lol.

    Elisabrat, any runner is a good runner. A little black in the spring can be useful if it's done right. I'm thinking of a bunch of tulips against a black wall. That would be kind of cool. Ooh, I could even use some of that rainbow thread I have to stitch the edges....pillowcase style, not binding. I do have some black loons that are supposed to be stuffed but could be used for applique. They came in a batch of stuff I got for $25.

    Oh, that reminds me! If anyone knows of an organization that would like to be the recipient of a bag full of medieval style costume patterns, give me a shout. There's probably a dozen or so in the bag & I can send pictures if needed when the camera comes back from Denmark.

    Vanogay, just make it and send it no problem! When you get my name (instead of us on a bench somewhere) you can remind me I already got part of it! Oh yeh, that'll work. And my dear little hubby just reminded me you only have 4 fingers on each hand and 1 thumb. Isn't he special?

    DustysMomma, I would love the appliqued loons on my spring runner - I am a bird type person and their woeful call (the loons) is a real magical sound. Well, to me it is! Maybe not to the brat though.
    Jaba, your hubby is correct. I started to say that, but figured I was the only one ana....riciduluous enough to think that way. And I don't want to upset my host for the Super Bowl, do I? Which team are we rooting for? I have a fair board meeting at 2 that day and then it's home to the TV and whatever food I have fixed before hand. Hand stitching, football and I are best of friends.

    Vanogay, i was looking at the photo I took of them in the bag & I think they would be too big for this runner. The head alone is about the size of a sandwich size ziplock bag. I might be able to work it into a throw size, but I think it would be too much for a runner, lol. I'm not sure I've ever heard a loon in person...

    Not sure Vanogay, you toss the coin and we'll decide which team. I really don't care either way but like you I will be watching for sure. Probably be sewing too on something, a new table runner maybe. Ana had to take out the surprise factor so now we'll know who, darn I like the surprise.

    The surprise factor unfortunately makes more work for me hehe. I prefer it too.
