Default August Mini Quilt swap

Mini Quilt Swap


August Mini Quilt swap


Sign-ups close July 31, 2014


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.
(If you and your partner decide to go slightly bigger, that is up to the two of you)


The theme is “Fair time!” either your literal interpretation or just the color way you choose.
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.


This will be a partnered swap. Each partner will make a mini quilt for the other.
(Partners cannot impose requirements or expectations upon each other.)


Please PM tlambing by Thursday, July 31st to sign up. I will then match up names and get them out to you by the evening of August 1st. You will have until August 31st 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:

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.


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


I am required to insist that participants send me, tlambing, at least 1 PM during this 6 week swap 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, tlambing as soon as they have finished their quilt and are ready to mail it.


Once I have received notice that both partners are ready to mail, I will send each of you a pm to let you know it’s time to mail.


I am required to insist that all participants send me, tlambing verification of shipment, including tracking information.


Participants are required to insure that packages will not arrive “postage due”


Any and all other fees, such as import duties, taxes, etc imposed by the recipients government are the sole responsibility of the recipient.


Absent legitimate and reported mitigating circumstances, participants who have not fulfilled their obligation to ship by August 31st shall be deemed as “late” and risk receiving Negative (swap) feedback.


Please keep in touch with me and your partner 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.

Woo-hoo...first to sign up, eh??!! I'm never 1st "signer upper"...lol
Fair theme...hmmm. what 1st came to mind was a ferris wheel... As I just finished designing and piecing the Texas theme quilt for my lqs, and it's mostly applique, and it has a windmill on it, I'm not sure I want to applique around all the little bars on a ferris wheel....but maybe??

Sign me up. I am cutting down on my swaps for awhile, but I am in on this swap. I like the fair theme, and our kids here have kids fair day they attend along with the other days with family. It will be fun.

I'm thinking and trying to come up with an idea for this theme but so far I'm drawing a total blank. All kinds of things come to mind, it's getting it on fabric that is not happening

Paper pieced snow cones, pinwheels made to resemble a ferris wheel. Paper pieced or applique canning jars, pies, cakes, veggies, even a pumpkin or watermelon..to represent blue ribbon categories.
Oooh, and livestock, could make a lil quilt with any of these. Still brainstorming (heavy on the storm...lol) for ideas...

kiffee, I had all those ideas...it's the paper piecing part that's the problem. But I'm in anyway, I'll come up with something.

Me too! I want in!!! I love the fair!! Especially the exhibit halls and all the cool items (food, crafts, livestock) that are on display an being judged!! Oh boy! My imagination is off and running already! And then there's the midway with all the games of chance (hey, I want to win a huge pink stuffed dog!!), and all the "fair foods" that show up. Deep fried Twinkies or Oreos, anyone?? I'm off to sketch out ideas now!
