    Please PM tlambing by Thursday November 3rd to sign up. I will then match up names and get them out to you ASAP. You will have until November 30th to mail your tiny quilt to your partner. This is a FIRM DEADLINE!
    Please don’t sign up unless you can commit fully to this deadline.

    Please continue to post on the thread throughout the swap. Let everyone know of your progress, post sneak peeks and encourage other swappers It’s so much fun seeing everyones progress and sharing in our quilting friendship.


    Any swapper that fails to follow through and does not contact me and their partner will be banned from any of my future swaps and will receive bad (swap)feedback. I know that sometimes things happen that are out of our control, I certainly would take this into consideration, but you MUST COMMUNICATE.


    Swappers should treat each other as friends and focus on the fun. So…please be prepared to be flexible, patient and understanding if necessary and appropriate.


    ****Please make sure to read the general rules that apply to all swaps here on the quilting board****

    What would constitute Holiday vs Winter? Holiday would be manger scenes or Christmas Trees? Winter is a snow flake? I ask because sometimes what I think of as winter , someone else may think of as Holiday.

    Blue lady...do join in! I think holiday would include Christmas trees, Santas, sleighs and reindeer, presents, carolers, candles and Christmas lights, gingerbread men, poinsettias, wreaths, nativity scenes and so on. To me winter would be snow scenes, snowmen, red cardinals and evergreens, snowflakes, fireplace with roaring fire, mittens and so on.

    This is my first time in this swap. Do you usually choose your own design, within the theme, or custom design something your partner asks for?

    Will appreciate your thoughts.

    The design is totally up to you. Your interpretation of the theme
    It is nice especially this month if you ask your partner which direction they'd like you to go. Some folks may not want an authentic Christmas mini, but rather a wintery one. But the design(pattern)is totally up to you. Hope that helps.

    Glad to have you join us!

    I am finally settled in after the disaster at the condo and closing the cottage in Maine. Count me in -- I have to make 9 table setting/place mats and this will also be the right size. I do enjoy the minis.

    I have a steel door here in Olympia and use magnets to"hang my minis each month.

    On to Thanksgiving. I am trying a few new recipes and just made a mushroom barley soup. Very easy and tasty with a hearty crusty bread. Yumm!

    my fabrics are red and green -- one has gingerbread houses -- another has holly -- another has candy -- so I guess you could call them holiday -- I hadn't thought of differences before

    Thanks Karen, still seems to be a lot of work to do but we are getting there. Had to replace the stove fan today and found a cockroach in the enclosed patio, they're coming to spray tomorrow. I'm getting use to the heat but seems like by 7pm I'm yawning and think it should be at least 10.
