    October 2018 to December 2018 Table Runner Swap

    Hi Guys,

    Welcome to our ongoing Table Runner Swap! This swap will run from 1st October 2018 to the 31st December 2018.

    You have until the 31st December 2018 to make a table runner - the theme this time is... Something you haven’t tried before. This is a method, block, applique, quilting… anything or way that you have not tried before.

    Size of Table Runner

    The table runner should be a minimum of 12” x 30”.
    You can use any technique/ any style.
    All fabrics used should be 100% cotton.
    The runner must have wadding and be quilted.

    Sign Up list

    There is no deadline so you can sign up at any time during the 3 months as this will be just an intention to participate. When you have made and are ready to mail your runner you can then sign up to the “ready to mail” list which is binding commitment.

    But please remember that the only list that counts is the Ready to Mail list posted at the end of December 2018.

    Ready to Mail list

    An initial Ready to Mail list will be posted around the 24th December 2018.If you are not on this list you will not get an address to send to unless you contact me and get on the final listing.

    Midnight on the 31st December 2018 – is the deadline to get on the “Ready to Mail” list. If you want to take part, I will need the following:-

    Real name
    Your address
    Whether you are willing to send international or not (Please consider this as it enables everybody to take part)
    Allergy info
    Pet and smoking information
    Email address

    As long as you have a table runner ready to mail you can join us by letting me know any time before the deadline.

    Addresses Sent Out:

    I will send out the name and address of the person you should send to on the 2nd or 3rd January 2019. You will have 7 days to get your table runner in the mail - No Longer. If you are unable to keep this commitment - please do not sign up.

    You will send your table runner 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.

    Please remember that there are quilters of all abilities on this board and you should appreciate the table runner you receive as your sender will have worked hard to make it for you.

    You are welcome to send some goodies in your package if you would care to, but please don't expect anything other than the table runner.

    Please Note.... You must let me know when you mail and when you receive. Also, please PM the person that sends to you when you receive to say thank you and to let them know that the table runner that they have sent you has arrived - it is only polite to do so!

    So come and join our fun.

    Hugs

    Caroline

    Is it OK to do something not so special? I am drawing a blank.

    Anna you can do whatever takes your fancy, just try something new that you havent done before on it such as free motion quilting, or a disappearing 9 patch or use a block you havn't tried before....look up blocks of the month. the challenge is to try something new to you. you'll do well!

    I'm going to play again too. It is going to be hard to come up with something I haven't done. I think I've tried it all.

    apple core is a trial unto its own.
    curves
    paper piecing
    english paper piecing
    miniature blocks
    prairie points
    applique- machine and hand
    curved edge binding
    original pattern
    quilting by hand and machine

    and a few I haven't thought of.

    I've still been procrastinating. I have the pattern but apprehensive about it but tomorrow I bite the bullet and buy the fabric!

    Embroidery? Drunkards path? Dresden plate? Log cabin? Blindfolded? One hand tied behin.... ok maybe I’m getting a little carried away trying to brainstorm possibilities.

    Blindfolded, LOL! This would be new. Haha

    I enjoy doing curves so maybe I'll try a new pattern with curves like Robbing Peter to pay Paul or the easy Cathedral Window look-a-like. There are just too many choices to make.

    I'm still drawing a blank but will keep pondering until I come up with something...hopefully.
    Just checking in with all of you, sorry it's been so long.
    Since being in Florida, I've had to go through a battery of tests that have really taken a toll on my immune system. It's pretty much non existent at this point. I had a CT scan last week that actually left me weak in the knees and really ill from the fluid they have you drink. Now I have a cold and stomach flu that will not go away. They postponed the MRI until next Tuesday so hopefully I will be better. Not a good way to start the Florida season.
    My other quilt for the Boom swap is pieced and put together, just not enough energy to get it on the machine and quilted, soon I hope.
