    April 2019 to June 2019 Table Runner Swap

    Hi Guys,

    Welcome to our ongoing Table Runner Swap! This swap will run from 1st April 2019 to the
    30th June 2019.

    You have until the 30th June 2019 to make a table runner - the theme this time is... Hexie’s or Curves. This means that you need to make a table runner that features either Hexagons or Curves…. in any form!

    Size of Table Runner

    The table runner should be a minimum of 12” x 30”.
    You can use any technique/any style.
    All fabrics used should be 100% cotton.
    The runner must have wadding and be quilted.

    Sign Up list

    There is no deadline so you can sign up at any time during the 3 months as this will be just an intention to participate. When you have made and are ready to mail your runner you can then sign up to the “ready to mail” list which is binding commitment.

    But please remember that the only list that counts is the Ready to Mail list posted at the end of June 2019.

    Ready to Mail list

    An initial Ready to Mail list will be posted around the 24th June 2019. If you are not on this list you will not get an address to send to unless you contact me and get on the final listing.

    Midnight on the 30th June 2019 – is the deadline to get on the “Ready to Mail” list. If you want to take part, I will need the following:-

    Real name
    Your address
    Whether you are willing to send international or not (Please consider this as it enables everybody to take part)
    Allergy info
    Pet and smoking information
    Email address

    As long as you have a table runner ready to mail you can join us by letting me know any time before the deadline.

    Addresses Sent Out:

    I will send out the name and address of the person you should send to on the 2nd or 3rd June 2019. You will have 7 days to get your table runner in the mail - No Longer. If you are unable to keep this commitment - please do not sign up.

    You will send your table runner to the quilter who's address you get. You will receive from a different quilter than the one you send to.

    This is not a partner swap.

    Please remember that there are quilters of all abilities on this board and you should appreciate the table runner you receive as your sender will have worked hard to make it for you.

    You are welcome to send some goodies in your package if you would care to, but please don't expect anything other than the table runner.

    Please Note.... You must let me know when you mail and when you receive. Also, please PM the person that sends to you when you receive to say thank you and to let them know that the table runner that they have sent you has arrived - it is only polite to do so!

    So come and join our fun.

    Hugs

    Caroline

    Gosh, I haven't been in any swap in a long time, this might be the time. I think I'd like to try this. I need something to get me back into sewing. I moved the end of February and redid my sewing room. Everything is unpacked and I'm ready to play. ;o)

    Working on something and printed out directions but I find the directions not complete enough in explaining. Hope I can figure this one out. It is not hexagon or draunkard's Patch as I have done those before I wanted to try soemthing different but no worries as it meets the requirements for this month's challenge.

    Anna, I love when I or anyone tries something new. This swap is so good for learning. You don't have to make something big to learn.A runner is so useful too. Glad your in again. Remember we are all here to help if we can.

    LOL lawsonmugs. You are optimistic. We'll see how it turns out. Trying something new is not my strenght. Depending on how it turns out I might need to contact Caroline and let her know to send it to you as you will be the only one to appreciate it. Thank you for your kind offer to help.

    Don't under estimate yourself. Anna. We were all novices at some time! I'll be your swap partner any day.

    Nice to see you again, Oksew. Curves / hexies is going to be a fun way to start back.

    Curves of any kind, not just a block:

    maybe a scalloped edge
    a round or oval shape
    one of those folded candle table toppers- they have curved pieces that make a 3-D quilt
    square blocks sliced with a curve in the center- two squares make two opposite blocks
    the addition of giant ric-rac in a border- it has curves
    easy cathedral window

    Hexies or maybe half hexies- no hand sewing or "Y" seams, each half a different color or shade of one color

    I have too many ideas and not enough time to experiment, I will have to jump in and follow the creative stream wherever it goes.

    wow! m-fay! beautiful runners!!!!! I"m still at a loss as to what I'm going to "create" lol. And Anna - I still think of myself as a novice or beginner - so much to learn, so much to experiment, so many choices, so much fabric, so many neat gadgets, etc. etc. See what I mean? lol
