Welcome to our Wall Hanging Swap!

You have 4 months to make a wall hanging of your choice.
All techniques are allowed.

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 and any style and any colors.
Embellishments are a fun way to add to your wall hanging if you like


Ready to Mail list - NO sign up list

Ready to Mail list will be posted the middle of Feb.

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

I will be posting addresses to each swapper on March 1st!!

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.

Count me in again. Sorry to hear that you get signups that don't produce. I enjoy making wall hangings, especially when I'm not limited on size.

I think some people forget they signed up. And some just run out of time. Some have life interfere. As long as we have enough interest I am more than willing to keep this swap going.

Glad to have you join in again Jeanne

I'm going to try and recruit some of the new members. Just today I welcomed a new member from NC and told about checking out this swap. What's great is that we have several months to get something together. I think maybe since this one is due well after the holidays you might see a better turnout. Summer coming to an end, school starting and then 3 holidays and we all know how much time Christmas takes up in our lives this last swap might have been put aside by many and just forgotten about. I noticed that there were hardly any posting of progression pics on this last swap, and I was guilty of that. So I guess we just have to keep the thread active so that everyone sees it on a daily basis.

I've been doing this swap for a couple of years now. This is the 8th one. The first one was July to Oct 2012.
I did this because I know life gets in the way and that is why I thought 4 mos would be a good time frame. I'd appreciate any help in getting it seen. Several of our players in this swap have been loyal and joined in most of them or have been in other swaps I've done. We always get a few new people every time and several of our regulars. I appreciate everyone who joins in and makes this a good swap!!

Hope we have a good turn out!

Hi everyone. Count me in for another WH. I understand how time can so easily get away from us and we give up stuff for what ever reason things happen.

One thing doing the swap has taught me is to stay committed to the project, any project, I am working on. I want to start trying new techniques and these little WHs is the perfect place to be a little creative.

Not having any restrictions on what we make is so much fun for our more creative side. Seeing and sharing what we design is like eating icing for dinner, all good stuff!

Now I have to do some research on what my next project will be.

Thanks R for hosting another WHS. I always enjoy the banter and seeing progress of what we are working on.
peace to all

Thanks Ube for your kind support. I so enjoy having such wonderful swappers. We do have several who keep the converstions going. 4 months is a long time to keep a converstion going all the time. but I am blessed to have swappers who post pictures from time to time and help keep this thread seen.

I actually sent out addresses this time and didn't make any blunders!! Yeah me! LOL last time I screwed up a couple because of allergy problems I had forgotten to check on and had to tell swappers I had to change their receivers after I sent out addresses. You would think after doing this so long I'd have it down pat but oh no I still find a way to mess it up LOL Keeps it interesting I guess LOL

I'm going to participate in this swap again. It's my favorite and by putting in this comment I know I will get notified when someone posts. (That way I won't forget....) You do a great job Rhonda.

I'm determined to have something ready to swap in February. I planned on swapping in the last two swaps and now have two UFOs, lol, so I hope I can complete at least one of them by February!
