    Just checking: are those sizes accurate? It seems a narrow range to me.

    Because we want to keep this doable, with sizes that are achievable, we're keeping this to lap size-- anywhere from 45x60 to 60x60.

    Very interested in this but a question - how is the quilt to be quilted? by hand, LAQ or domestic machine. Can it be a mixture of two types of quilting. Carol

    I can quilt on my domestic machine, or I can tie them. I might be able to hand quilt using the method called 'big stitch', since I can't see well enough to do regular hand quilting. I can't afford to 'quilt by check' at this time. I hope this is OK.

    Finishing before the required date is certainly allowed. I believe I have to wait until the closing date (12/15/2011) before I make matches; I'll check with Patrice as this information is not in the instructions. Mm... yeah, let me check on that right away. Cuz I bet some of us would like to start our quilts now. (The late date is due to the fact that most people who expressed initial interest said they couldn't start until after the holidays.)

    I am in, I already PM you right after you posted this Still need to send you the info tho, just been busy getting stuff done for other swaps. I think this time I might have extended myself but I will not let anyone down in my swaps. Even if that means I stay up all night sewing. LOL But I am looking forward to this swap for sure!!!!

    I'll be machine quilting mine. there's no way I can hand quilt in that short of time. :) I'm still working on hand quilting my baby quilt for my DD who will be 3 in December. And I started it right when I found out that I was pregnant.

    This is very exciting. I spent some time this evening comparing who wants what with who wants to make what; so far so good. We do have almost two more months before the signup closes. This is very fun (for me, at least). :-)

    It's up to the maker of the quilt how they would like to quilt it. Just keep in mind that it has to be complete and sent to your swap partner by July 15, 2012.
