    October 2019 to December 2019 Table Runner Swap

    Hi Guys,

    Welcome to our ongoing Table Runner Swap! This swap will run from 1st October 2019 to the
    31st December 2019.

    You have until the 31st December 2019 to make a table runner - the theme this time is……….....
    Flora or Fauna. This means that you need to make a table runner that represents the theme in any way…. i.e. style, pictorial, colourway, fabric choice etc.

    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 2019.

    Ready to Mail list

    Two Ready to Mail lists will be posted this time..... the first around the 15thvand the second around 27th December 2019 (I am doing two this time to remind you as I am sure you will all be busy getting ready for the holidays). If you are not on these lists you will not get an address to send to unless you contact me and get on the final listing.

    Midnight on the 31st December 2019 – 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 2020. 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

    Oh I'm in again. Surprised huh? lol. So floral fabrics or blocks or whatever huh? hummm...... Gotta go get the old brain awake. Happy Halloween to those of you that celebrate. It's suppose to be cold and even some snowflakes here. Glad my kids are in their 40's and 50's. I'll be snuggled up in a warm quilt while all those mom's and dad's and grandparents etc are out there trick-or-treating. Sometimes it pays to be old. Just not often enough.

    I will play again. I love floral fabric, especially cabbage roses and then there's the Rose of Sharon and Carolina Lily. The possibilities are endless.

    I’ve been trying to recoup from the flight to Florida, thought it would be better than driving, not so sure. My system is not cooperating very well so hope the doctor gets it figured out soon. Hopefully I can get a runner done and swap with one of you.
    Happy halloween everyone, enjoy the little goblins

    I'm in too. I like the idea of Fauna, but have tons of floral fabric, so that is probably the way I'll go.

    Fauna means animals? Ha! I’ve been looking at how to do the butterfly block. Do bugs count?

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one that didn't know. Been working on sewing 18" doll clothes and shoes for Christmas and maybe sell. It's fun but they are small. shoes are about 2 1/4 inches long. I need to at least find a pattern for our swap.

    Fauna means animals? Oh my goodness! I was thinking of greens - wild plants, trees etc. That would have been a surprise for someone wouldn’t it?
