    joining in! oh gosh, I am so nervous. I've only done one swap before, and it was just a fat quarter swap, so I'm a little intimidated by having to sew for someone else, but I think this will be perfect for me. Small in scale and a chance to try out some fun modern styles.
    looking forward to seeing everyone's work!

    check your records. you are showing havplenty (me) as number 5 and number 10. i know i have a split personality sometimes and i had two ideas for minis this time, but i should only send 1.

    now to help me decide which one to send:

    ~ should it be the first idea
    or
    ~ should it be the second idea?

    Is this swap entirely up to the designer to come up with the quilt pattern, or do we wait for a partner and see what their preference is for color/design/etc?
    I am very sure I am waaaay over-complicating this, but I want to make sure I do this right.

    -just spent I don't know how long going over the Modern Quilt Guild's 100 Days of Modern Quilting....soooooooo amazing!

    For me personally, I enjoy seeing what others create for me. I am not picky at all. It's more fun for me that way. Probably less pressure on the other party. So whomever I get as my partner already has a heads up. I have already made my top today too....

    my understanding is you can do it either way. i like to meet my partner and then base my quilt on something obscure she says. it helps me know what she would appreciate the most. once i just haad an idea and went with it before i had a partner and that worked out to, i think! i haven't actually had that trade complete yet. what, me worry? nawww

    to my upcoming partner: please feel free to design what you like for me. l luv modern colorful prints and i love all colors. let your creative juices flow and do not feel any restrictions. i am looking forward to seeing what you have created for me!!!!

    and to my upcoming partner: i work best when i can create what is in my mind. i am a creative person naturally and by training. i already have two designs in mind and will probably make them both and choose closer to the date. i did put it out there for suggestions on the first idea or the second idea. feel free to voice your opinion and i will take it into consideration.

    well mine will be multi-colored so hopefully there will be enough colors that you like to compensate for the ones that you like less.

    I have completed my 1st one, I must say this was a very different process for me. I did a scrappy modern and offset the center, then quilted with straight lines off set, , like driving in the rain. I didn't know what to look at for a guide. Now I'm going to work with a solid gray fabric and a color for pop, no pattern just solid I think I'll try the circle pattern for the quilting.This is so hard since my trademark work is texture everywhere.

    This is my first quilt swap of any kind! (can you say nervous!?!) But, I figured a mini quilt was a great way to get a foot in the door. Come on in, the waters fine!

    I am just looking right now. I will make a decision before the deadline. Have to finish my other two swaps first then if time, will do this. I have a concept of what needs to be done. Will keep on back burner.

    I'm a newbie at the modern mini quilt challenge. I am hoping the one I made meets the qualifications, and if for some reason it doesn't, it was still fun to make and I will chalk it up as a learning experience.
