    July Mini Quilt Swap "Dealers Choice"

    July Mini Quilt swap


    July theme…
    “Dealers choice”


    Sign-ups close July 3rd, 2015




    For this swap we will be making miniature quilts. The suggested size is 6-18 inches or anywhere in between, finished.
    Square, round, rectangle, hexi, it’s up to you.


    The theme is “Dealers Choice” anything goes. (it would be nice to ask your partners likes/dislikes for this one)
    either your literal interpretation or just the color way you choose.
    The little quilt must have a top, batting and backing and must be bound. You can use any method you wish to fashion the top, piecing, appliqué, whole cloth, thread painting etc.
    This will be a partnered swap. Each partner will make a mini quilt for the other.
    (Partners cannot impose requirements or expectations upon each other.)


    Please PM tlambing by Friday, July 3rd to sign up. I will then match up names and get them out to you by the evening of July 4th . You will have until July 31st to mail your tiny quilt to your partner. This is a FIRM DEADLINE!
    Please don’t sign up unless you can commit fully to this deadline.


    Please pm the following info to tlambing if you wish to join us:
    *if you’re a returning player, I have your info just send me your name and any changes*




    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 etc.)
    Can you ship internationally:
    Do you have the ability to post pictures:


    As soon as names are given, please contact your partner right away.
    Please contact me asap if you are having trouble getting in contact.
    Please continue to post on the thread throughout the swap. Let everyone know of your progress, post sneak peeks and encourage other swappers. It’s so much fun seeing everyones progress and sharing in our quilting friendship.


    Any swapper that fails to follow through and does not contact me and their partner will be banned from any of my future swaps and will receive bad (swap)feedback. I know that sometimes things happen that are out of our control, I certainly would take this into consideration, but you MUST COMMUNICATE.


    ****Please make sure to read the general rules that apply to all swaps here on the quilting board****


    I am required to insist that participants send me, tlambing, at least 1 PM during this month long swap to verify that they are still active in this swap and are working on their promised project.


    I am required to insist that all participants send me, tlambing verification of shipment, including tracking information.


    Participants are required to insure that packages will not arrive “postage due”


    Any and all other fees, such as import duties, taxes, etc imposed by the recipients 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 31st shall be deemed as “late” and risk receiving Negative (swap) feedback.


    Please keep in touch with me and your partner as required. Please let me 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.

    I wish I knew my partner's likes and dislikes. I really like to start early. But, I guess I have to wait for another week.

    After I suggested that Lynnie join in ( I love her) , I decided I'd better join too. Always time to make a new friend.
    I'm doing homework- cutting- for my Split Diamond Star class at City Quilter. Yes, I could do it by myself, but the terrific teacher has great tips! A mini quilt will be a fun distraction. I wonder who my partner will be. Dotty/NYC

    Yay... hope we ended up with an even number of swappers.

    So where's our Fearless Leader? She said she'd have our pairings up this morning. Didn't happen. Hope she didn't get lost on the way to the QB...

    OK here we go!
    This month is a bit different. The theme is Dealers choice. You can make anything you choose this month! I thought it might be fun however to find out a couple things about your partner and try to incorporate something they will "like", maybe their favorite color or "batiks" You get the gist.


    * quick reminder, the only item you are "required" to swap is the mini quilt you make. If you choose to send other gifties it is totally up to you but they are NOT required*



    July Partners:
    Letquilt~FabQuilter
    jclinganrey~klaws
    jaba~azcardsgirl
    Ljdugas31~Lynnie
    JuneBillie~Sewbizgirl
    JuanitaBean~dotcomdtcm

    Please get in contact asap and let me know if there are any problems
