    Doll quilt swap # 53 lincoln's log cabin

    Doll Quilt Swap #53 –

    Theme: Lincoln's Log Cabin

    In Honor of Lincoln's birthday and President's Day, let's see what how are construction skills are in building log cabins quilts. Here is your chance to build and design your own log home. You choose the colors and layout!


    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, just send me a PM no later than NOON (EST) on January 31, 2014
    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 February 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 February 28, 2014. 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.

    Nice to hear from you Crazy Quiltin Robin! I hope this new drug is just the ticket. My dad was the oldest recipient in Canada for a trial drug for Multiple Myeloma and he was declared cancer free a year later!

    I have been thinking about you and so glad to see you on the board again. Maybe you can do a 'crazy' log cabin doll quilt. Use your imagination! I bet it would be beautiful....

    These doll quilt swaps are always so much fun. I would like to do this one but let me see if I can get my act together. I am really enjoying all the beautiful and cute little quilts I received in the past. this theme sounds just like something I would enjoy making and receiving.

    OH, I want to join. Am sending a PM. This should be fun.
    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've never done a log cabin and I'm nervous about this one. However, since it's doll quilt swap 53, and I'm 53, I will give it a try and hopefully get it done before I turn 54!

    Thanks everyone ...its been a long hard road the last few months .... but I'm making it as best I can .... we are hoping this trial drug will put this in remission for a long time .... so far no bad side effects .... this is good ... lots of blood work and scans go along with this .... but I'm feeling ok and thank God there are no tubes coming out of my body with this .... no ports ...just 2 pills ... they told me I have 4 active lymph nodes again ..they are shrinking with just one week of these pills .... I cleaned the sewing room and got the fabric out for the log cabin ...I'm ready to go ..... can't wait to see who I get to swap with ..... ladies your quilts have kept me warm so often ...wrapped up in them when I felted so bad .... thanks for all the warmth you have shared with me .... lets go on with the mini quilts ....... got my pattern out too ...... I'm ready ..... God has been so good to me .... ready to sew !!!!!!
