    January 2017 to March 2017 Table Runner Swap

    Hi Guys,

    Welcome to our ongoing Table Runner Swap! This one will run 1st January to the 31st March 2017.
    You have until the end of March to make a table runner - the theme this time is Spring.

    Size of Table Runner

    Thetable runner should be a minimum of 12” x 30”.
    You can use any technique/ any style.
    All fabrics used should be 100% cotton.
    The runner must have wadding and be quilted.

    Sign Up list

    There is no deadline so you can sign up at any time during the 3 months as this will be just an intention to participate. When you have made and are ready to mail your runner you can then sign up to the “ready to mail” list which is binding commitment.
    But please remember that the only list that counts is the Ready to Mail list at the end of March.

    Ready to Mail list

    An initial Ready to Mail list will be posted around the 26th March 2017.
    If you are not on this list you will not get an address to send to unless you contact me and get on the final listing.

    MIDNIGHT on the 31st March 2017 – is the deadline to get on the “Ready to Mail” list

    I will need:

    Real name
    Your address
    Whether you are willing to send international or not (Please consider this as it enables everybody to take part)
    Allergy info
    Pet and smoking information
    Email address

    As long as you have a table runner ready to mail by the deadline you can join us any time!

    Addresses Sent Out:

    I will send out the name and address of the person you should send to on the 1st or 2nd April 2017. You will have 7 days to get your table runner in the mail - NO LONGER. If you are unable to keep this commitment - please do not sign up.

    You will send your table runner to the quilter who's address you get.
    You will receive from a different quilter than the one you send to.

    This is not a partner swap.

    Please note that there are quilters of all abilities on this board and you should appreciate the table runner you receive as your sender will have worked hard to make it for you.

    You are welcome to send some goodies in your package if you would care to, but please don't expect anything other than the table runner.

    PLEASE NOTE.... You must let me know when you mail and when you receive. Also, please PM the person that sends to you when you receive to say thank you and to let them know that the table runner that they have sent you has arrived - it is only polite to do so!

    So come and join our fun.

    Hugs

    Caroline

    After a long time off I am sticking my big toe back into the swap pond! I have already PM'd Caroline and am working on my runner.

    I am not receiving updates when someone posts to this thread. Can anyone help me remember how to subscribe to a thread? LOL

    Just above the first post to the right is a tab called "thread tools". Click on that, click on "subscribe" and your choice as to how to get notifications.

    I have my pattern and fabric picked out and will be starting it Sunday. I finished my quilt for the mini swap today. I really like what I am going to make. Maybe there is enough fabric for two of them. I am using one of my all time favorite fabrics in this one.

    I've cut some of the components, but haven't started sewing yet. The design I'm making is easy peasy but has lots and lots of small pieces, so is time consuming. But no matching seams, so Yea!

    well I'm close to finishing. I'm working on the binding and then I'm done. Thought I would show a little peek. You can see a clip on the edge of the corner where I haven't sewn it down yet. This went together so quickly. I think the hardest is choosing the fabrics all the time. That takes me forever. lol. Hope to see some more peeks.

    Got my fabric today - the longest part of the process, I swear! I've seen what I want to do with it, but still searching the pattern! Lots of web hits say free pattern but lead nowhere! Might try to wing it with the help of a You Tube video & hope I get it right! lol But ..... considering you don't know what pattern I'm talking about, you won't know whether I get it right or not, will you? lol lol

    Sue you sound like me. I hate when Pinterest or you tube dead ends with no pattern.

    Lawsonmugs -- love the sunny corner of your table runner. Blue and yellow are such a lovely combination.

    I finished my table runner this evening. Will take a pic tomorrow and post a peek. I'm happy with the way it turned out -- all kinds of flowers bursting from it.

    Here's a teaser pic of the table runner. This is the "Texas side" with two strips of bluebonnets.
