    Elisabrat's Summer Fun! Table Runner/Table Mat Swap SIGN UPS CLOSE MAY 5th

    Elisabrat's Table Mat/Runner Swap

    This Swap will close May 5th.

    Welcome to my swap! This is a Table Mat or Table Runner swap.

    A Table Mat would be any shape that would be a centerpiece; this should be a minimum size of 16" across the longest point. For instance, a hexagon table mat that is 16" from one corner to another at its widest point and each of its six sides are 8".
    A Table Runner should be a minimum size of 12"x28". Table runners are typically longer than they are wide.

    How it works:
    This swap will be a partnered swap. You will work with your partner to determine colors and sizes that will work with them. THE THEME IS: SUMMER FUN!

    Design and method will be up to the creator but since this is something that will be on a table and likely spilled on, make sure whatever you make is washable on at least a gentle cycle. Goo d grade cottons only no homespuns or non cotton fabrics in this swap please. You should make something you would put on your own table at home. Take your time, there is no rush to get it out fast. better slow but steady and you will be pleased with what you send and your partner will be thrilled to receive it!

    Please PM ELISABRAT with the following information by May 5th. She will then match up names and get them returned to you by May 8th. You will have until July 1st to mail the finished product.

    Board Name:
    Real Name:
    Phone #: (this will NOT be given to your partner, this is for my use only in the event that a problem should arise)
    Do you have any allergies:
    Do you have any allergens (cats, dogs, smoker):
    Can you ship international:
    Do you have the ability to post pictures:

    It is encouraged and acceptable to post pictures of fabric choices, progress. I would love some lively conversation so lets keep this a fun forum to chat, bounce ideas off each other, assist each other as needed. There will never be a dumb question so ask if you need help. And above all else.. HAVE FUN! Encourage each other!

    Please notify Elisabrat as soon as possible if you feel you cannot complete your obligation. Please don’t sign up if you don’t think you can achieve a finished product in the time allotted.

    People who fail to follow-through and do not notify Elisabrat will be banned from any of my future swaps (should there be any) and your name may be given to other swap hosts. Obviously, things happen in life and I will certainly consider that, but you must communicate. I reach out fairly regularly to check on progress so there is no excuse for not telling us if there might be a delay.

    So jump on board everyone and join the fun!

    Now for the legalese.

    ****Please make sure to read the general rules that apply to all swaps here at the Quilting Board: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm ****

    I am required to insist that participants send Elisabrat a monthly PM to verify that they are still active in this swap and are working on their promised project.

    I am required to insist that participants notify Elisabrat as soon as they have finished their quilt and are ready to mail it.

    Once I have received notice that both partners are done and ready to mail, I will send both a PM to let them know it’s time to mail.

    I am required to insist that all participants send Elisabrat verification of shipment, to include tracking information.

    Participants are required to ensure packages will not arrive “postage due.”

    Any and all other fees, such as import duties, taxes, etc imposed by the recipient’s government are the sole responsibility of the recipient.

    Absent legitimate and reported mitigating circumstances, participants who have not fulfilled their obligation to ship by July 1st shall be deemed “late” and risk receiving Negative [Swap] Feedback.

    Please keep in touch with Elisabrat as required. Please let her know right away if something happens that will interfere with your ability to complete your project on time.

    Swappers should treat each other as friends and focus on the fun. So … please be prepared to be flexible, patient and understanding if necessary and appropriate.

    HI! I am temporary filling in for Anastasia our wonderful swap leader while she finishes her school semester. The girl is working too hard to be able to run the swap at this present time but I imagine she will be back and running for the next adventure!

    I am hoping that all of you enjoy yourself in the swap and let me know if you have any questions! lets rock and roll and have some SUMMER FUN!

    Jump on in! the quilting is fun! the concept exciting! you can chose to make a patriotic runner or a summer theme runner (whatever that means to you) talk with your partner and get a feel for what they might want. This is a quick simple swap, runners or table mats really dont take that much time and you end up with such pretty items. Think you can use them on your dinner/kitchen table, your coffee table, a side board, end table.. lots and lots of places. you could even pin them up on the wall and enjoy the color of the season your patio table? you can save it for a gift! shall I go on and on? Ok those of you who know me surely know I am capable (and willing!). Help me make this a swap that everyone wishes they had joined.

    Most importantly please PM me with your sign ups. I will send a quick got it note back so you are sure your in. Yahooo!

    You know I'm in. I'll get around to sending my info in soon. It's going to be busy the next 3 evenings, so I spend 3 hours at the nail salon this evening. My fingers are orange and my toes are blue. Alumni council meeting starts tomorrow. I have to work late tomorrow, but Friday and Saturday evenings are going to be dedicated to dinner with these kind folks. The least I could do was to meet them with pretty hands & feet!

    They were SO busy this evening. They usually do both my mani and pedi at the same time, but they were too busy. I get gel polish, which takes a while to get off, so that's an extra half hour. I had 3 that had to be fixed, which is another 10 minutes. It's usually at least 90 minutes when I go for both. I don't get the simple pedi though. I get the 45 minute one for the extra massage & other things. Since my problems started with my right foot over a year ago, it's worth it.

    As for the kind of party, well, it's getting up to around 80 degrees here in Alabama, so I'm liable to wear some sandals either Friday or Saturday night. Friday is a bit dressier, so it's more likely then. Or, I might break out the peep toe gold shoes again!

    Yes, orange & blue are the school colors at Auburn University, where my boyfriend is a department head. This is what not only allows me to travel with him, but also gets me into all the additional social events we have to attend. The alumni council is a big deal though. The most successful of the alums are on the council, and are here for this meeting twice a year.

    We have three new swappers and I hope everyone enjoys the ride. Thanks for signing up dconroy, AlaskaAlice and Berryberry! yahoooo! ringing bells, dancing in the street! where is that band??

    I am thinking of this wonderful new red/white/blue fabric I picked up looks like medallions vs patriotic per say. so pretty and then again I am wondering oh watermellons and tropical things (I bought a lot of variety for my tropical swap so oodles left over..) or maybe picnics.. a little red check and some daisys and some pie fabric or or .. chickens! lol summer chickens (do they have summer chickens? why not!).. oh oh there is this beautiful sunflower fabric I have red/yellow bright flowers about 6 inches each.. colorful . I am one happy camper I hope you are too!

    Since you asked so nicely AND since there's an entire month between the end of the booms swap and this one.... Count me in In an effort for full disclosure though, I neither have a table topper or runner or have ever made any. Hope that isn't a problem!

    Oh oh oh!! Yes please... something WINE-y would be fantastic!! I have a tall metal table in my kitchen that is the shape of a wine bottle and holds a few bottles and glasses. I looooove it!

    Sadly though, I live within 30 miles of 24 different wineries and have been to 1. Pathetic, I know...

    I sent my information in! I couldn't let Brat have a party without me, she is too much fun! I have some wonderful watermelon and green ticking fabric or some florals. Whatever my partner wants I am always up for shopping! I don't know what I really want, my house doesn't really have a theme or decorating direction, I have never really done anything about it. Maybe butterflies me and the girls love butterflies, but my husband would love something patriotic, a Texas theme would be cool. I am actually open, I like to see different techniques and fabrics!!!!!

    Bwahahahaaaa....you thought you could trick me by changing who runs this swap, eh??!! No such luck, as here I am signing up for it!!! LOL...Sorry, I just had a "Snidely Whiplash" moment...
    Will pm you my info, Brat. One big reason I love this swap is I am trying to get better with my fmq, and this is a small enough project to be great for that...Um, if I would only stick with it and not revert back to my hand quilting...
