    Oooh! When tealfalcon submits her answers, we'll have TWENTY participants. (I have no idea what a typical size is for a swap...)

    I want to encourage folks to get as specific as possible about what they want to receive and make. It's really okay to ask for what you WANT! (It also will help me match partners!)

    22 and growing (I hope!)... By the way, non-U.S. board members are welcome to sign up! We have one from Canada; another from Australia! I will connect people willing & able to deal with international shipping costs.

    I think I'd like to do this but my experience is limited, I am mostly a scrappy/ piecer in my quilting, I do have an embroidery machine so I could do an embroidered quilt if anyone wanted, I would also like to experience something other than what I would normally do for myself, but I REALLY dislike civil war/1930's repos and pastels. So have I disqualified myself from this swap?

    Terryl, I would be thrilled to receive one of your quilts. Everybody starts somewhere.

    Terryl, it sounds to me like you've QUALIFIED yourself for this swap. We have participants with a range of experiences. Please do join.
    The instructions are in the first message of this thread. (Page 1.)

    I would love to have one from you too. Not all of us are as talented as some on this board. That is not the point of this. We are making quilts for each other, not the quilt police. In fact, quilt police are not invited to our swaps. :thumbup:

    Here's the deal: I set the 12/15 deadline because so many people who initially expressed interest said that they would not be able to start until after the holidays.

    THAT SAID, a number of you would like to start NOW. PatriceJ tells me that I can start matching/pairing you as soon as I want. And frankly, I've already started the work of finding what I hope will be compatible swap partners.

    SO... if you want to get started NOW, let me know via PM (please do not post your answer here) and I'll communicate the partner choices. JUST KNOW that if you want to start right away, the person I partner you with may not be able to start until after the holidays.

    But there's no reason why some who want to start now can't.

    I look forward to your PMs...

    I so badly want to be part of this swap but the last swap I signed up for over a year ago ended with me never receiving my quilt top back. I have not signed up for any swaps since then so I hope that all who sign up really stick with their commitments when they sign up for this amazing swap.

    Tam Moo, I'm very sorry that happened to you. If you sign up for this swap, and your partner let's you down by not sending you a quilt I PROMISE you I will send you one. It may not be by the dead line (you won't know til then) but it won't be too long afterwards. Girl scout honor.

    For $.70 you can have a tracking number attached to your package, that allows the receiver and sender to keep track of the package. I use it all the time. Get it at the post office. Cheap peace of mind. :thumbup:

    By now, each of those who have signed up so far should have received a PM from me with the name of their swap partner. If you've signed up and haven't received such a PM from me, contact me.

    Although I've paired people up, new participants are still welcome to sign up until December 15, 2011.

    AND folks: I really want this to be a lot of fun.

    If you feel I've made an incompatible match, please let me know and I'll find you someone else.

    And if you have any concerns, questions or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    And because there's been a question about it, the dates of the swap have NOT changed:

    The swap remains open to new participants until 15 Dec 2011; fully completed quilts must be sent to your partner by 15 July 2012.

    We have so far, 28 participants.
