    Smile APRIL 2012 DOLL QUILT SWAP SIGN UP - Closes Midnight EST March 30

    [h=2]Sign up time for the Quilting Board's 32[SUP]nd[/SUP] Doll Quilt Swap![/h]
    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.

    Doll Quilt Swap #32 – April 2012

    Theme: Colors of Spring – Pick only two colors for your quilt. You may use different hues of the same colors and any color thread to add details. As always, the theme is optional, but if you’re up for a challenge, come play along with us.

    SIGN UP: To join the fun, just send me a PM. Sign up begins today and ends at midnight (EST) on March 30, 2012. Partners will be assigned on the 31[SUP]st[/SUP]. Please let me know whether you are able to swap internationally as we have a few members who are outside the USA.


    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.

    DUE DATE: The deadline for all quilts to be sent is April 30[SUP]th[/SUP], 2012. If you feel this deadline is difficult to meet, please consider skipping a month so you’ll feel less pressure. After all, it’s supposed to be fun!

    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.

    DOLL QUILT GROUP – Besides this thread, there is a Doll Quilt group on the Quilting Board. There you can upload photos, start discussions on ideas for themes, share resources about techniques for doll quilts and other mini quilts, and whatever you want to do. It’s your group, so you decide!

    I am in again. Hoping for Lynnie. The Australiasian Quilt Show sounds so awesome. Hoping my daughter does not have anything planned for for that day.
