    October to November Table Runner Swap

    Hi Guys,

    Welcome to our ongoing Table Runner Swap!

    Due to requests this swap will have a shorter turnaround time than usual, so we will be getting runners off in time to be received for Christmas....


    You have until the end of November to make a table runner - the theme this time is Winter or Christmas whichever you prefer. If you do not celebrate Christmas please let me know and I will endeavour to match you with a winter runner.


    Size of Table Runner

    Thetable 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 2 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.
    But please remember that the only list that counts is the Ready to Mail list at the end September.

    Ready to Mail list

    An initial Ready to Mail list will be posted around the 26th November 2016.
    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 30th November 2016 – is the deadline to get on the “Ready to Mail” list

    I will need:

    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
    Whether your runner is Winter or Christmas.

    As long as you have a table runner ready to mail by the deadline you can join us any time!

    Addresses Sent Out:

    I will send out the name and address of the person you should send to on the 1st or 2nd December 2016. You will have 4 days to get your table runner in the mail - NO LONGER. Normally we have 7 days but as we will be up against the Christmas post the sooner we get them sent the better.

    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 note 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 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!

    Hugs

    Caroline

    Oh, this sounds great. Count me in. I'll send the PM later today. Quick question - I see where we can list what kind of runner we are going to make. Where/ when do we request the kind we want?

    You can post it here like I did, just be sure to let Caroline know what you want to trade when you are ready to send.
    I want to trade for a Christmas one and I will make a Christmas one

    I too have a question; this says the end of September? Was that a typo?? The next paragraph says November. I'd be interested too.

    There is no deadline so you can sign up at any time during the 2 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.

    Hi Sewnclog,

    That sure is a typo and should read November.

    Hugs

    We all get a bit busy through the holidays so I got the jump on the Nov. table runner. I might get a few done and have a choice. Here is what I have done on the first one.

    It is 36" long and 15ish" wide

    This is such an easy pattern. Any bunch of 2" strips and a 5" square in the center, working out, alternating sides. It worked up really, really, really fast. I am having fun with this block.
    Thanks
    peace

    Looks really good Ube, I started early too and have finished the top (4 blocks) that looks good for a table topper. After looking at your mini quilts I think I've worked out how to reduce the size, make 12 blocks and make a runner.

    The pattern is in BH&G American Patchwork & Quiltinng Creative Collection book, 2006,
    Quilt Lovers Favorites, Volume 7.

    It is called Limerick Log Cabin by Bettina Havig.

    I just made three blocks of a full size quilt. It works up really fast.

    Count me in! Winter or Christmas is fine with me. I'd be happy to do a winter theme for anyone who has requested.
