    Nov 2016 - Feb 2017 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.
    The Sign Up list is just to see who is interested in joining us.
    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 Feb.
    If you are not on this list you will not get an address to send to.
    Deadline - MIDNIGHT central time last day of February 2017

    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 February you can join us any time!

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

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

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

    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

    Looking forward to participating in this one. I have the perfect WH for spring, and with the extra time off during the holidays I should be able to have it done way before the deadline.

    Jnct, I have been hoping to see your completed wall-hanging. The color choices are nice together and the quilting is very pretty. I'm glad that you girls were able to figure out how to post the photo. It seems as though there should be more wall-hangings/photos for that swap.

    I am in! I have the cutest Idea and am so excited that I can post pictures!
    Being left handed myself I feel your pain, Ube! My Daughter who is also left handed learned how to knit from my Mom she sat across from her and duplicated her movements! I think I couldn't do it because my Mom was a lot harder on me that she was on my Daughter!LOL
    I taught myself to crochet small items but quilting and sewing will always be my first love!

I crossed learning how to do it off my list of accomplishments a long time ago so now I don't have to worry about it. I can enjoy all the wonderful things created by all of you.
    peace
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Ube, you are so nice, Thank you......It was Glacé fabric by Moda, I think. I will try to post a few of the blocks.
    And SewingSew.......thank you, too......it wasn't that I took my time...haha...it was that I did the blocks, didn't know if I liked them so I put it in the closet unassembled. Finally found some fabric online a few months ago for the backing...yea, some store still had some! Now that it is done I do like it. It is actually Christmas fabric.
