    August Mini Swap

    August Mini Quilt Swap

    “Monochromatic”


    Sign-ups close July 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 “Monochromatic”
    (maybe even in your partners favorite color?)
    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 Friday July 31st to sign up
    . I will then match up names and get them out to you ASAP. 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:
    *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)
    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****

    What? I am the first to post here? Wow, what is happening, oh yeah, summer. Hmmm, thinking. Wondering if can do this.

    I just watched a video which may help to understand monochromatic for someone else like me. LOL http://study.com/academy/lesson/mono...-examples.html
    Thinking of a pattern, maybe a dresdan plate would be good. This could use up lots of scraps. Hmmm, thinking even harder.

    Don't let the big word scare ya! Monochromatic only means all one color (different shades of it) I know you can come up something splendid with all of those scraps sitting in that stash

    How did you know I had so many scraps. LOL Yeah, I do have a few to say the least. Someday they may get used up. Not sure when, but someday.

    Sorry for being MIA. But, I've been working on 3 lap quilts that I need to have finished in a couple weeks. I have 2 done and one yet to sandwich and quilt. I am leaving for Ohio on the 31st and won't be back home until Sept. 14th. I will be taking them with me. I originally planned a road trip but decided to fly instead. I hope to join back in the swaps in October. I will check in and see everyone's beautiful work.

    here is my planned color scheme for the mini I am making. Is it MC appropriate enough?

    If my surprise partner decides on another color scheme I will gladly change it up to a more suitable choice for that person. I want happiness to be my focus.

    Looks like a fun theme, but I'm going to be tied up w/ house remodel stuff this month.

    Sonic screwdrivers, fez, bow ties, and Stetsons are cool.
