    Doll Quilt Swap #50 ! October 2013 Sign up here!

    Doll Quilt Swap #50 – OUR GOLDEN SWAP!

    Theme: THE GOLDEN FLICKER OF CANDLES


    The simple golden flicker of a candle flame represents so much to so many. Birthdays,
    anniversaries, remembering loved ones, and
    holiday traditions all have one thing in
    common, Candles! SO.... that being said, Candle(s) will be our theme for this month. You can use this as your Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa swap. Please let your partner know if you have a preference (next month's theme will be your choice so you can do more holiday if you want)



    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 it’s a great way to make new quilty friends.

    Here are the details.I know they are long and boring, but please read them. Really!
    As always, rules for this swap also agree with the general guidelines for all Quilt Board Swaps – Read here
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/member-swaps-round-row-robins-f11/rules-swaps-similar-activities-updated-8-december-2010-a-t20154.html


    SIGN UP: Easy As 1-2-3 –4-5


    1. To join the fun, justsend me a PM no later than NOON (EST) on September 30,2013
    2. Please let me know whether you are able to swap internationallyas
      we have a few members who are outside the USA.
    3. You will not be able to sign up if you have any outstanding quilts from
      previous months – except for the current month.
    4. Let me know you have read the guidelines and make sure your QB mailbox
      isn’t full.
    5. Help YOUR HOSTESS KEEP TRACK:When you mail off your quilt, please send me a PM. Also send one when you receive a quilt you’re your partner. This will help me keep track and to ensure that everyone receives a quilt.


    Partner Assignment: Partners will be assigned on October 1st. Bookmark this thread for partner assignment – or find your partner at our Group Home herehttp://www.quiltingboard.com/groups/...group-g14.html

    Mailing Deadline: You must have your quilt in the mail no later than October 31, 2013. 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 don’t feel pressured.

    DOLL QUILT SWAP GUIDELINES

    SIZE:
    Doll quilts can be between 12”x12” to 24”x24” 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. It’s up to you.

    CONSTRUCTION: Pick your technique. Doll quilts may be pieced, appliquéd, 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 don’t want to sign it, please include a card or attach a removable tag with your Quilting Board name or real name if different.

    MANNERS: Don’t 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 you’re 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. Don’t post a photo until your partner receives your quilt so the surprise won’t 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 haven’t 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 sender’s 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.

    I hesitated a bit cause I couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel but what the heck, I'm in for October. PMing now. But my little quilt won't be connected to any holiday celebration so maybe there is another partner out there that feels the same as I do.

    As I signed up I was excited by this months theme - there is a flicker of an idea and there is always a flicker of hope that you will come up with some fabulous design that you can share with the rest of us. A flicker of light from the flame dancing to the beat from a slight breeze.

    sometimes the struggle is part of the fun, so i wouldnt think you need to change the theme. the added challenge for me is that i have money for postage but not for extra fabric so i need to make this little guy out of my scraps/stash. i am waiting to sign up until i have a least a basic idea.

    This morning I figured out what I am going to do. If what I am planning isn't something my swap partner will like, it's something I like and will enjoy keeping. If my partner wants something different, I will deal with that at that time. The way I see it, it's a win, win situation.

    My life has gotten crazy, neither myself or mom aka LucyLou512 will not be able to participate for a few months. Mom will be having some surgery that will keep her down probably until the beginning of the year. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with for this theme.

    Have a wonderful time swapping.

    Been away for a while, but I am back and joining October. Can't wait.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I see sunlight myself. that is the eternal candle in my head.. a ring of light .. ever look up and see like rings around it? very much like a candle. Thanks for all the ideas I am sure if one went to pinterest you could find a bunch more. the inspirations are everywhere and a grand use for left over scraps I think. if you have a bit of gold/yellow for the top the rest is easy if your doing a candle at all and the colors again.. if you stare at a candle the glowing ring of colors around it are right there for your enjoyment I swear I am not doing another dq. I swear it. I am working on things I have to finish.
