Smile Autumn Harvest - September Doll Quilt Swap Sign Up Closes August 31st Noon EST

Sign up time for the Quilting Board's 37th Doll Quilt Swap - Autumn Harvest

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 its a great way to make new quilty friends.

Here are the details. I know they are long and boring, but please read them. Please?

Doll Quilt Swap #37 October 2012 - Autumn Harvest

Theme: Autumn Harvest Autumn is such an exciting time of the year. The air turns crisp, the leaves glow in an amazing array of color, and the abundance of harvest time tantalizes the senses. What does autumn mean to you? As always, the theme is optional, but if youre up for a challenge, come play along with us.

SIGN UP: Easy As 1-2-3
1. To join the fun, just send me a PM no later than NOON (EST) on August 31, 2012.
2. Please let me know whether you are able to swap internationally as we have a few members who are outside the USA.
3. Let me know you have read the guidelines and make sure your QB mailbox isnt full.

Partner Assignment: Partners will be assigned on September 1st. Find your partner at our Group Home here http://www.quiltingboard.com/groups/...group-g14.html

Mailing Deadline: You must have your quilt in the mail no later than September 30th. If you do not think you can meet that deadline, you might want to wait a month or two until your schedule frees up and you dont feel pressured.


Doll quilts can be between 12x12 to 24x24 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. Its up to you.

CONSTRUCTION: Pick your technique. Doll quilts may be pieced, appliqud, 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 dont want to sign it, please include a card or attach a removable tag with your Quilting Board name or real name if different.

MANNERS: Dont 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 youre 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. Dont post a photo until your partner receives your quilt so the surprise wont 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 havent 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 senders choice, it is always nice to ask if your partner has any preferences.

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. Its your group, so you decide!
