    April Mini Quilt swap

    April theme…
    April Fools!
    It’s your chance to be Silly-Foolish and Nonsensical!
    Sign-ups close March 31st


    For this swap we will be making miniature quilts. The suggested size is 6-18 inches or anywhere in between, finished.
    Square, round, rectangle, hexi, it’s up to you.

    The theme is “April Fools!”
    The little quilt must have a top, batting and backing and must be bound. You can use any method you wish to fashion the top, piecing, appliqué, whole cloth, thread painting etc.

    Please PM tlambing by Thursday March 31st to sign up. I will then match up names and get them out to you ASAP. You will have until April 29th to mail your tiny quilt to your partner. This is a FIRM DEADLINE!
    Please don’t sign up unless you can commit fully to this deadline.


    Please pm the following info to tlambing if you wish to join us:
    *if you’re a returning player, I have your info just send me your name and any changes*

    Real name:
    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:
    Do you have any allergens (cats, dogs, smoker etc.)
    Can you ship internationally:
    Do you have the ability to post pictures:

    As soon as names are given, please contact your partner right away.
    Please contact me asap if you are having trouble getting in contact.
    Please continue to post on the thread throughout the swap. Let everyone know of your progress, post sneak peeks and encourage other swappers It’s so much fun seeing everyones progress and sharing in our quilting friendship.

    Any swapper that fails to follow through and does not contact me and their partner will be banned from any of my future swaps and will receive bad (swap)feedback. I know that sometimes things happen that are out of our control, I certainly would take this into consideration, but you MUST COMMUNICATE.

    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.

    ****Please make sure to read the general rules that apply to all swaps here on the quilting board****

    Oh I'm definitely in for this! What a plethora of ideas...teehee!!
    I'm sorry but I'm not able to do the April POM. I made several aprons before Christmas, and I'm "aproned out". But I will sneak over and see what everyone makes...
    Regards,

    we get to do sneak peaks??? OK -- I will do a teaser with the fabrics I am using.

    Remember when we were so innocent?? there were few phones and the April fool was to call a store and ask "do you have Prince Albert in a can??" when the reply was yes -- they said -- "Well let him out" For you youngsters -- Prince Albert was either snuff or chewing tobacco.

    I didn't know that NC was so cold -- Uncle -- You look worthy of Maine or Alaska where my GS lives in Anchorage.

    I hope I get to swap with you sometime

    Mim -- only in Maine in the summer -- I turned soft a few years ago LOL --- Actually, Cushing was warmer than Olympia for most of the winter -- this year -- last year Maine was buried in snow

    I am still looking for ideas.

    ideas

    How about things that trick you -- yin/yang - optical illusions -- even those boxes that look different depending how you look at them -- jack in the box?????? think of the little things that little kids giggle about

    Don't give up - it's fun !!!!!!! :')
