    Time for Doll Quilt Swap Part Deux!

    Our first doll quilt swap was so much fun I decided we needed to do it again! http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/19269.page

    DOLL QUILT SWAP GUIDELINES

    SIZE: from 12”x12” to 24”x24”…any size or shape in between.

    MATERIALS: natural fibers/cotton, wool, linen

    EMBELLISHMENTS: if you want to use them, feel free…beads, rickrack, buttons, doilies, ribbon, lace….anything or nothing at all.

    CONSTRUCTION: Pieced, appliquéd, wholecloth, or yo-yos; quilted by hand or machine; and bound.

    LABEL: It is recommended that you attach a label to the back of your quilt. I know, this can be a bit scary for some people though, so it will not be a requirement. A label is however a very nice addition to any handmade quilt. Whether or not you decide to label your quilt, please do include a note with your quilt with your quilting board name, real name and contact information (snail mail address and/or email address, etc. so that they can thank you).

    PARTNERS: You will be paired with a partner for this swap. You will make a quilt for your partner and your partner makes one for you. Feel free to discuss color considerations, likes and dislikes, etc. between yourselves. You will also be responsible for securing delivery addresses.

    DUE DATE: The deadline for all quilts to be sent is June 30, 2009.

    COMMUNICATION: If for any reason you cannot meet the deadline or you need to drop out of this swap, please let me know as soon as you know. If you communicate any setbacks with me I can make sure things work out favorably for your partner, no hard feelings.

    SIGN UP: Sign up begins today and ends Tuesday, June 2, 2009. I’ll assign partners after that date.

    If you would like to sign up, send me a PM or reply to this thread. Please let me know if you are willing to send internationally as we have several members outside of the US.

    Here are some links for ideas:

    Only KGoodhand and k3n have been paired up already. They requested it during the last swap. I'll pair everyone else up after June 2.

    Sounds good to me K!!
    And I was going to say the same thing to you! I love the idea of being surprised! Plus I like the idea of knowing that someone did what they love to do! Do you have colours that you prefer?!? Like spring colours, fall colours that sort of thing?!?
    I am getting started very soon I hope of course that depends on work and kids! Oh and husband!

    I have it all picked out and I'm sure you will LOVE it! That is unless you have something you REALLY want.
    And no...I'm not telling, it's a surprise, but as the kids now say...it's shiney! lol

    You can put me down for the swap too. I have a lovely paper-pieced square that didn't quite make 12ins. I think I'll use it and create a doll quilt out of it.
