    You're welcome to join up until the mailing date. All you have to ahve is a wall hanging ready to mail. there will be a limit of 2 weeks past the mailing date for running over the time limit.
    You will get an address to send to a few days before the mail date. So you just make whatever you like.
    Posting progress pics is always great and you won't spoil any surprises as noone knows how gets what til it comes in the mail!

    I've been thinking of what to do over the last couple of days...hmm what to do lol. Then it came to me today I'll do what I love doing and don't do anything Im not used to. Its like trying a new recipe when you have visitors. Anyway as I love embroidery I guess this is what I'll be doing. Here is teaser no.2 if I can upload the pic
    Happy days.

    oh, didn't anyone tell you? the quilt police were overthrown and tossed out of the board! NO quilt police here!! you'll do fine. not very long ago i was a newbie, too. we all were. and this is probably the nicest group of people you will ever meet!

    I have posted long sermons on being in your sewing journey LOL
    to make a long story short we are all on a journey and we all had to start somewhere. we all have alot to learn and noone is concerned with your skills in the swaps but with getting something you made! My biggest thing is I think it is so cool to hold in my hand something my partner was holding in her/his hand not long ago!
    I LOVE getting stuff someone made for me!!

    We all are our own worst critics and we can pick our own stuff to pieces when it comes to flaws or mistakes.
    besides how does anyone know that you didn't mean for it to come out that way? LOL

    swaps are for having fun and NOT a quilt contest where the best one wins! We ALL win when we get a sweet pkg in the mail from the swap!!!!

    Hi All!! I decided what I wanted to do and started on it today. It's not very big (about 15 inches) and I hope someone loves it. It's the 2nd wall hanging I've made from this pattern so, obviously, I like it All I have left is the quilting, backing, and binding which won't take me nearly as long as the paper piecing did!! The photos were taken with my cell so the colors are a little off.

    Happy Quilting Everyone!!

    well, i think your wh is coming along swimmingly! i sing a song for my dgd (who will be 2 in august) "down in the meadow in an itty bitty pool, lives a big mama fishie and her baby fishies, too. swim said the mama fishie, swim if you can. and they swam and the swam, right over the dam. wop wop diddem daddem waddom shu, wop wop diddem daddem waddem shu and thy swam and they swam, right over the dam! anyone else know that song? everytime i say shu, olivia's mom beep's her nose! i point my finger at the camera and olivia gets nose bopped. she loves it! and so do i! of course, the words i learned first were more 'baby talk. maybe her 2 yr old quilt will feature fishies! thanks for the inspiration!!
    i agree on the mind issue. it may be warped and kinda dirty from thinkin outside the box, but i'll keep my brain!

    I think I have finally decided on a pattern, now to pull some fabrics from my stash. Will try and get that done over the weekend and post a sneak peak. Of course by then, I will have probably changed my mind about the pattern...aaarrgghhhh I think prep is the hardest part of making a quilt.

    I can't seem to decide on a pattern. Now I can't start for a while as I had surgery on my right hand Wed. but I'm on the mend & as soon as I get the bulky bandage off I want to start on this. Rhonda, I know you didn't specify size but what do you recommend? I don't want to go too big or too small.

    it's hard for me to give any size. what size is comfortable for you to work on?
    smaller than a lap quilt would to me be something about 3 ft by 4 ft maybe?
    I'm a miniaturist so I am more comfortable with working on something like 14" x 14" or slightly larger.
    your pattern will help to determine the size too

    They can be square or rectangular like a table runner or octagon etc
    Anything goes!
