    March -June 2019 Wall Hanging Swap

    Welcome to our Wall Hanging Swap!


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

    This is an anything goes swap. There is no theme.

    Size and Type of Wall Hanging:

    Smaller than a lap quilt but larger than a mug rug.
    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.
    The Sign Up list is just to see who is interested in joining us.
    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 June 2019.
    If you are not on this list you will not get an address to send to.
    Deadline - Midnight central time last day of June 2019


    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 you can join us any time up to midnight on the last day of June!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Addresses Sent Out:
    I will be sending addresses to each swapper at midnight of the last day of June!!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    You will then send your wall hanging 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.

    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 no one 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'm in again. I have one top made. But, am thinking of doing another one also. I don't think anyone mentioned how addicting these small projects are to do. My mind has already wandered to severral other small projects as well. lol So much fun.

    I am in. I haven't any plans yet, but will be thinking about it while I recover from my hand surgery happening this week. 4 months should give me plenty of time to recover from both hand surgeries and still have a great wall hanging. I may not be posting much while in recovery, just so you know. Will be looking later.

    I pulled out my bin of 1.5" triangles to play with for the next swap. Teen inspired me with all her color wheel like Wall Hangings that she has been working on.



    And, working...…..



    And, now I have these.



    My top is almost finished. I still have the lettering to do. And, of course, layering and quilting.

    But, there is still time when this one is done. I have another idea also. Just in case this one is not anyone else's cup of tea.

    I tend to go a little to bright for others. (A little too bright for me at the moment also.) But, all those lovely scraps were just calling my name.

    I can see in the last year (as I've been weeding/straightening/culling through my stash) that my taste has been changing. I am gravitating to fabric that is softer and not as busy. Pastels and solids are really catching my interest.

    I do hope your surgery is a success and wish you a speedy recovery. I do hope you come back and read/visit often even if you can't post.

    Hoping all goes well through your surgery, Rumbols.

    I'm in again . The thing I should practice most is some hand sewing so maybe (that's a maybe ) I can use it in this swap. I have a pattern in mind.
    Sew many Quilts.......so little time!

    Thank you Ube.

    This is the quilt top Wall Hanging I'm working on. It's not a big piece. 17 x 18.



    I'm still debating on the wording which is why it's still the same as it was a week ago. I'll figure it out soon. Or maybe no wording at all.....

    Welcome Mona G, There are no rules in this swap except for being bigger than a mug rug and smaller than a lap quilt. Take all your experience and do what you like or challenge yourself with something new. A new technique or color combination, applique, thread painting, landscapes, collage, curves, miniature piecing or paper piecing, as examples. These small creations are a perfect place to explore the new or work towards perfecting the perfect HST.

    Look through some of the old swaps and see what people have made, for inspiration.

    Do what you like, you don't have to please anyone or make something you think everyone will like, that is impossible.

    We are here to help along the way to answer questions and help.

    Lots of us like to do seasonal pieces so we can change them out every so often or sewing related themes for our sewing areas. Something whimsical is always fun too.

    Hope some of this info helps you get started.

    peace

    love all the ideas. Such bright fabrics and fun ideas!

    Welcome Mona we love having new people join the fun!!

    Here is a picture a friend of mine shared on my FB page. She isn't a quilter but knows I love quilting.
    I was so impressed with how cute this picture would be as a wall hanging!!
    I'll never make it but I thought it might inspire someone!

    That would be an easy idea to fly with, hummingbirds and flowers are always popular.

    My Geraniums made a huge come back. The heat nearly killed them last year. So, I babied them all year, moved them to a better location and covered them if it even felt like it was too cold. My persistence paid off. They are coming back beautifully. A shout of Spring.





    I also have them in my kitchen window. But, they don't do as well there. (That's where the candy pink ones used to be.) I think it's too hot for them there. I might have to move them also. But, for now, I had cut them back and they are just starting to come back. The kitchen ones are a fuchsia pink.

    Hope to be a part of the coming swap. Am waiting for a particular presser foot to make it all easier. Enjoyed looking at all the awesome WH's in the last swap. Lot's of talented folks here.

    Have changed things up for a bit. I am working on a different Wall Hanging for a bit. I saw this block over on Pinterest. It's called the Oklahoma Twister Block. The block looks big. But it's only 6.5" unfinished. Still playing with triangles.
