    July - October 2016 Wall Hanging Swap

    Welcome to our Wall Hanging Swap!

    You have 4 months to make a wall hanging of your choice.

    Size and Type of Wall Hanging:

    A wall hanging should be smaller than a lap quilt but larger than a mug rug.
    You can use any technique/ any style / any colors.
    Embellishments are a fun way to add to your wall hanging if you like

    Sign Up list

    There is no deadline.
    But please remember that the only list that counts is the Ready to Mail list at the end of the 4 month swap.

    Ready to Mail list

    Ready to Mail list will be posted the middle of October.
    If you are not on this list you will not get an address to send to.
    Deadline - MIDNIGHT central time last day of October

    I Need:
    Please send me an updated info even if you have been swapping with me for awhile. I seem to be missing some info I need.

    Real name
    your address
    send international or not
    Allergy info
    Pet and smoking information
    Would like an email address
    Phone number would be appreciated

    As long as you have a wall hanging ready to mail by the last day of October you can join us any time!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Addresses Sent Out:

    I will be sending addresses to each swapper at midnight of the last day of October!!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    You will then send your wall hanging to the quilter who's address you get.
    You will receive from a differant quilter than the one you send to.

    This is not a partner swap.


    IMPORTANT:

    Please send me a pm when you mail and when you receive!!
    Only those who send me a pm to let me know they are ready to mail will be on the mailing list.
    Anyone who is not done on time may enter theirs in the next swap.

    Please Post Pics of:

    Your fabrics
    Embellishments you are using
    Progress pictures
    Finished wall hanging - since noone knows who gets what -not even me-there is no surprise ruined by posting your pictures.

    Prewashing or not is up to you

    I hope you decide to join us and have a lot of fun!!


    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 first and I am in! This is a fun and wonderful group with an amazing host. Thank you all.

    Oh any ideas what you are making?

    What else is everyone working on?

    I am quilting a baby girl quilt for my grand daughter that was born yesterday. she is having some problems breathing and under observation and testing. praying all will be well.

    I am also working the July mini quilt swap on this board, the theme is kaleidoscope. It is the first time I am doing the mini quilt swap. I generally prefer something more in my comfort zone and bigger but the theme really appealed to me.

    On a long term basic I am making the Farm Girl Vintage quilt by Lori Holt at a local quilt shop class. Lots of fun but the 6 inch blocks are nearly doing me in. I did not realize how small some of the pieces are in this quilt as I might have opted for the 12 inch version. As I like the look of this quilt for a wall hanging, very large wall hanging, I will be pleased with the end result and the class helps me stay on track.

    DH and I are celebrating our 31 st wedding anniversary by going to the beach with three of our youngest daughters and eating at our favorite Mexican food place, simple but yummy. got beautiful red roses, balloons and a mooshy card from DH. Life is good.

    Nice to see you keeping on track Anna. Love the baby quilt and praying for total wellness.
    I am doing the 365 challenge and they have 6" blocks with 112 pieces. Ridiculous, but challenging for me. Good for building quilting skill. Opted not to do the July mini because I do have some intense quilting to do on my own for the fairs and quilt show competition.
    I will see what I get done for a wallhanging.

    My granddaughter went home yesterday and is doing well. It appears her breathing issues and infection have resolved. In a couple of weeks I hope to visit her. Thank you for your well wishes and prayers.

    Awesome, I love taking pics of "flying flowers" and your caption is so appropriate.

    Here is a practice piece of what I am working on for the Swap. It is not meant for the swap but maybe it might be possibly included. I have a whole flock going and will pick the finalist at a later date. Enjoy.

    we need more quilters joining in! But you don't have to be on this list to join in. Remember you can join in anytime up to the last minute as long as you have a wall hanging ready to mail!! And make sure I know you are ready!! I missed a couple this last time (my fault not theirs) and I will try my hardest not to miss anyone this go round!!

    Please pm me rather than post on the thread when it comes to letting me know you have mailed or received. that way I can save the pms for reference later.

    Ube how do you turn under your edges for applique? I love that you get such sharp points on the beak and such.

    Thanks R. This is the first hand applique I have really done and I took what I learned from doing EPP and put it to use on the sharper points and deeper curves. The Sewline Glue stick works wonders for keeping those points in place.

    I don't know if this is a conventional method but here's what I did.

    I cut out the pattern and lay it wrong side up on my ironing pad. Using a narrow paint brush I paint starch along the seam line, (3/8 or 1/4") in from the edge of the fabric. I fold the seam in and press it with a medium iron, I have a little travel iron to do this. I do this all the way around the piece except for the points and deep curves.

    At the points I use the glue pen but I test the position first and finger press, then glue. You have to fold the point in far enough to have a wide enough area along the fold to then fold in each side to create the point. One side first to the center point of the fold and trim extra fabric, dab with glue and finger press. I will also use a pin to manipulate the fabric. Then repeat the other side to create the point.

    The inside curves are clipped and dabbed with glue and then fold the seam onto the glue and finger press. It will stay put!

    After the seam is all turned under I place it on the background fabric and sew baste it in place. Then I can do the hand sewing with no worry about pins or shifting. Pull the basting out when done.

    Maybe I'll take some pictures when I do the next bird.

    These have been fun to make.
    peace

    Anna, I am going to take some pictures to show what I am doing. I found I didn't want to be bothered with the traditional way of making templates and hand basting the edge under. I found this simpler, for me, odd ball that I am.

    How is that grand baby?

    I forgot to add this. I get what the birds, deer, squirrels and bears don't. There is a whole hedge row and I'm thinking I might get a cup full of these wild black berries. Yummmmm
