October 2018 to December 2018 Table Runner Swap
Hi Guys,

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

You have until the 31[SUP]st[/SUP] 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.

Being a newbie, there are lots of things that are firsts for me; log cabin, Dresden plate, applique, etc., etc, etc. lol

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

lawsonmugs 10-25-2018 07:55 AM

No Anna,the police say it has to be special..... just like me. lol. I don't have any idea either yet.

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!

Annaquilts 10-25-2018 10:50 PM

LOL m-fay I think I got my months mixed up and did the try something new last month. I think it lives at your house now. ~smile~

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 12:47 PM.
