    DOLL QUILT SWAP #51 - NOV & DEC 2013 combined into one

    Doll Quilt Swap # 51 - November and December 2013 combined...

    Theme: Mystery Suprise!!
    You can surprise you partner totally or you and her and decide on a theme and then surprise them with that! You have your choice of what to do this month. We all have so much going on in our lives in the next couple of months so we are combining NOV and DEC into one swap with extended dates. SO PLEASE READ BELOW TO CHECK DEADLINES....

    As always, rules for this swap also agree with the general guidelines for all Quilt Board Swaps – Read here RULES FOR SWAPS AND SIMILAR ACTIVITIES - Updated 8 December 2010

    You know the drill …
    SIGN UP: Easy As 1-2-3 – 4


    1. To join the fun, just send me a PM no later than 5PM (EST) on NOVEMBER 4TH, 2013 please put NOV/DEC sign up in the subject line.
    2. Please let me know whether you are able to swap internationally as 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 Nov 5th. Bookmark this thread for partner assignment – or 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 Dec 14th, 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 had to laugh when I read this, the locals can always spot a "Yankee" at the beach. When we bought our home in Alabama, our neighbors were watching us wash windows in short sleeved shirts. The temps were in the 60's but they were nestled in their home wearing sweatshirts with the heat running.

    Welcome tlambing! Likethedog is also joining in this group from the table runner group! We're a fun bunch! We do normally have a monthly theme but the with holidays I figure it is easier this way. You can wait to get your partner and then discuss with her if you want to, or not, you don't have to!

    I lived in Arizona. Up in Sedona, where it was a bit higher altitude 5,000 feet .. got hot in the days cool at nights especially in winter .. cool all day snowy sometimes at night.. down in PHX well they never got cool. In winter it was a frosty 75. I would see the nurses all in turtlenecks and sweaters/sweatshirts.. they said its COLD OUTSIDE. OMG.. brr almost freezing like lol.. I was wearing tank tops and tshirts.. and hot. I like cooler weather.. though a nice lounge chair half in the water on a Mexico lagoon with a cold beer in your hand.. its not too bad.. I need to be able to jump in too cool off or forget it. I am thinking you might be the only ones at the beach at this time of year.

    Thanks likesthedog and tlambing for jumping over with us. Its fun and well we needed you!!! my girls are the greatest I think. now where else can I post...

    Ok, I'm in this time. I would feel so left out if I didn't join. I have an idea if my partner wants a surprise, or if you want something particular I can work with that too. Must have been having a creative lull when I started doubting myself a few days ago...glad that didn't last long, hehe. Looking forward to making and receiving another one of these little darlings.

    I'm in. I would not be in good humor if I had to miss another. LOL I did do some catching up, though. And that feels great. Finished up a quilt I started nearly 3 years ago. In time for the quilt show. Saw 6 or 7 quilts from last years group quilting. Last night I worked on finishing that one up. The top will be finished tonight, I hope. I have several tops ready to quilt, I hope to get working on them next. So many ideas, so many projects in the wings, so little time. This group is such fun. I put together a bunch of my swap quilts for the show. I am attaching a picture. Is your's in there? Missing Bertie and Brats cause they are hanging on the wall at the office and I forgot to grab them. Enjoy

    wow what a collection you have going there!! its fun to see them all together like that! I am excited for this challenge.. and with so much time.. if you end up with one short to pair people up Quiltingkrazy I can work with two people if needed this is where creativity REALLY hits the quilters challenge as there are numerous possibilities your partner could ask for. I am ready.. wonder if they are ready for me???
