    [QUOTE-lynnie;6010994]im debating on this, im on the scrap board, and ahead on swaps there. its the shipping that's killing me. what sort of designs are people doing??????? I don't even know what I need. im good for surprises though. someone, please answer and tell me what youd like so I know what im getting myself into, thanks, I need ideas.

    Hi, Lynnie. So far I've heard tropical flowers, wine, patriotic, ice cream and Texas as possible themes. I like sea shells. There's others I can think of like flip flops, lighthouses and bikes. It will all depend on your swap partner and they are picked/ unveiled May 8th. Come on out and play!

    Kif, we can convert you can't we group? um your a diamond girl for hand quilting but oh my joy fmq or even stitch in the ditch.. you can do it cinderelli! this project no hand quilting for you. unless its all you really want to do. look no time best machine quilt it!!! welcome welcome welcome!!

    I am only here this round in case Anastasia wants her swap back if not well.. its me kids. humor me.. or just roll your eyes and say oh heck its the BRAT again.. ready and willing and at your service troops! I am so happy with all the sign ups already keep them coming keep them coming. Everyone the water is sooo toasty warm! jump in with the gang its a very serious group we are. yuppers. very serious. first I have to look that word up but in some countries we could be considered serious I just have to see what countries are not discovered yet and yup that is the one! yup yup!! I am so wanting to make something to make someone smile I love these runners, I dont do decor since well mine is ecclectic at best. I do holidays and seasons! which cant match my furniture no how but everything works with the rest of the silly things I put out so its all good. I just love the change of scenary in the house.. same old same old boring. cant afford a new sofa every three months or year or five so well I change up the little things which bring a new life to the rest try it you will be addicted honest! its like popcorn for those who like just five kernels right? or cookies only one right? or pretty ornaments on the tree.. one? NOT happening. sorta like that only better. give me five I will remember why..

    Ooh, I just had a thought....who wants a pretty red & white runner? I made 8 placemat sized Danish flags before Christmas, then didn't use them for what I planned to, so now they're pretty UFO's. In case you've never seen a Danish flag:

    I actually thought about making something quilty out of them, but I haven't decided what yet.

    Dusty'smomma, a little blue and it's the 4th of July, no problem. Lynnie, you can do this. Summer or patriotic, table mat or table runner, come join us......after all I had never made a pin cushion or needle case. Would love to see you here also.

    I actually have some flag fabric. I guess if I trimmed it in it, it would be an international runner/quilt!

    I know how to make a 10 minute table runner and napkins to go with it. Beach and sea shells sound great or how about red and white checks with ants at a picnic?

    I just dowloaded some free patterns from Craftsy.com that I could possible use. Its some intricate piecing but I think I can do it.

    I am hoping all of you are going to use a bit of batting in your runner. It helps with hot things should they be placed on it so the tables are safe

    Lynnie this is an easy relaxed swap. You can be as artistic, quilty as you like. You can so simple, you can go wild its all up to the creator. The only thing that you will need to wait for is what colors or things your partner likes. If they say I sure would love patriotic then your colors would go that direction and if they want beach things well that can go from sandels, crabs, fish, water.. to just the colors that remind you of the beach. I am hoping most of you can work something out with your partner that pleases them but doesnt have to send you to the store. I am all about raiding your stash I do most things with a bit of this and a bit of that. And it usually works.

    So join on up! I think if your looking for ideas go to Anastasia's Table runner swap and start peeking about half way into the forum and you will see posts starting of finished runners.. and the variety was great. I believe it was a spring theme last time.. we are also doing a side swap there for Tropical runners and near the end of the forum are some very nice peeks at runners being made. This can give everyone a great idea of what is being traded table runner wise. lots of variety. I will post my latest creation there when the sun comes up today so I can photograph it in regular light. Parrots and hibiscus flowers and happy happy brights to go with it

    ps I think a ten minute runner might take me an hour just a reference of how slow I am... like that turtle in the race.. I never finish fast but I do finish

    I sent my pm to join. I have two table runners pieced and they need homes so I can be motivated to finish them. Yep, still those wonderful UFOs. I can post photos and see who wants to be a taker of which one. Have to get home first. One is a pink/red, green, tan, and a brown/green/pink/tan color batik. All of them are batiks. It is a round table topper. I also have a double wedding ring runner in greens and purple/red/brownish color of print fabrics. Very pretty. It is set with a cream and green coordinating fabric for background. These would be available. This way I could work them in to be quilted in June or May if I get to needing to experiment with a quilt design. let me know. HAHAHAHAHAHA Or should that be Elisabrat.

    Ok...I'm in, sent my information. I don't make gifties or goodies but I have made a couple of table runners lately and am kind of hooked. I have a pretty wide variety in my stash and look forward to finding out what my swap partner would like....might even use it as an excuse to shop...lol.

    I am in, sent my PM in. this will be my first time in one of the table runner/mat swaps. i am going to look for the past swaps to see what has been done.

    I am open to just about anything. I love the beach, patroitic, batiks, florals. this will be fun to do. No I am gonna go look for some patterns for both.

    I may even have to add some machine embroidery to them.

    I'm in also, my first tablemat-runner swap. Sounds like fun. Summer fun for me includes flower gardening, boating campfires, cocktails, 4th of July. Bright vibrant colors.

    Silkesjj well welcome to my world!!!

    I am proud to announce we have so far to date 24 swappers signed up. So victory dance get going Ms. Yosemitesa .. all of you sit down she is really really good. legs for days and she has energy most of us only wish for! and a small cheering squad with really short legs who helps!

    I am very thankful for all the support and sign ups. this will be an amazingly grand opening for me. I will be counting on all of you to be my memory which sometimes takes a left turn. its not on purpose trust me. When we are all signed up I will post a final list of who I have registered and please oh please let me know if I left you off. Ok I think I will do this along the way starting this weekend so you can knock me up if I forgot you on total brain cramp accident.

    I am thinking we should be rock'n and rolling very shortly after as I have my best sharks helping me work out a system to organize everyone so all are happy. phew!!!

    I could not resist so am jumping in again. Mainly I love the notes and fun times with all of you. Now to anxiously await my partner's name so I can figure out which way to jump. I am thinking table topper more than runner but will go with whatever swap partner wants. :-) On another note, I am ready for warmer weather...snow flurries and rain off and on all day. Come on spring!

    I am looking forward to this swap. It will be the first time I have particapted in this kind of swap. I am eager to see who I get and what she is interested in.

    I am one who is an open book as what I really want. I have colors that I like and don't like. Really dont have a theme about my home.

    I am single, living at my parents helping them. We converted their garage into an apartment for me so I have my own place and privacy. Mom and I both quilt and do machine embroidery together. I have been quilting now for about 14 years and mom only about 7 years. She started with the machine embroidery about 17 yrs ago and pulled me in....quilting is a little bit cheaper than machine embroidery. LOL I enjoy both and now there are many programs out there that bring both together.

    I am a respiratory therapist working for a home portable oxygen company. I love this little machine it is battery operated and produces its own oxygen........no more ugly heavy tanks to carry around.

    I will not be a stranger and not post, I also am the hostess of a weight loss thread on the board.
