    Sign up time for the Quilting Board's 24th Doll Quilt Swap.

    All levels of quilters are welcome to play with us. We're just here to have fun. It's a great chance to practice a new technique, use up your scraps and/or stash, buy some new fabric, and make new quilty friends. Here are the details:

    Doll Quilt Swap #24 -- June 2011
    No Theme, Sender's Choice

    DOLL QUILT SWAP GUIDELINES

    SIZE: from 12”x12” to 24”x24”…any size or shape in between. If your finished quilt measures 24" x 26", or 11" x 13" it's fine. No worries or excessive rules for this swap. ;)

    MATERIALS: natural fibers/cotton, wool, linen.

    EMBELLISHMENTS: if you want to use them, feel free…beads, rickrack, buttons, doilies, ribbon, lace…anything or nothing at all.

    CONSTRUCTION: Pieced, appliquéd, wholecloth; quilted by hand or machine; and bound.

    LABEL: It is recommended that you attach a label to the back of your quilt. A label is a nice addition to any handmade quilt. You can even sign the back of your quilt with your name and date. Whether or not you decide to label your quilt, please do include a note with your quilt with your Quilting Board name so that your partner can thank you.

    MANNERS: Please remember to thank your partner. Just a simple post is great. It also lets me know you've received a quilt so I can mark my records and make sure everyone receives a quilt. If you are unable to post a picture, please ask your partner to do so. Much of the fun is seeing everyone's creations.

    PARTNERS: You will be paired with a partner for this swap. You will make a quilt for your partner and your partner will make a quilt for you.

    DUE DATE: The deadline for all quilts to be sent is June 30, 2011. If this deadline seems tight for you, or you have a busy month, consider making a quilt for the next swap and having it ready to go. You'll get two months to create and less pressure.

    COMMUNICATION: If for any reason you cannot meet the deadline or you need to drop out of this swap, please let me know as soon as you know. If you communicate any setbacks with me I can make sure things work out favorably for you and your partner, no hard feelings.

    SIGN UP: Sign up begins today and ends May 31, 2010. I’ll assign partners after that date. The group activity thread can be found here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/group_a...sp?gracnum=161

    If you would like to sign up, you can respond to this thread or PM me. Please let me know if you are willing to send internationally as we have a few swappers outside of the US.

    Here are some links for ideas:

    Our March Swap: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-101637-10.htm

    Looking forward to another fun swap! Join us and prepare to be amazed!

    this is my first time, but already know I have no room for many little quilts, I plan to hang them on a free standing stand and change them often. Sounds like such fun, I can hardly wait.
