    Rhonda's Very First Wall Hanging Swap!!!!

    Welcome!!

    We are starting a new swap with Wall Hangings!

    Here is how the Swap works!

    June - You make one quilt block of your choice
    July - You make one quilt block of your choice
    Aug. - You make one quilt block of your choice
    Sept - You make one quilt block of your choice
    Oct. Construct your quilt blocks into a wall hanging

    Oct 31st - All wall hangings that are posted as pics will be entered
    into the drawing
    If posting a picture is a problem for you let me know and I will help

    Nov 1st - I will draw names and addresses and send each quilter
    the address they will send their wall hanging to.

    Please Post Pics of: Not required but this would be great if you can

    Your Fabric you are going to use or thinking of using
    Embellishments you are using
    Progress pictures would be nice!!
    Each month post a pic of the quilt block you made
    You can post pictures of the quilt blocks you are thinking of doing also

    I would like to see some sharing of ideas and conversation along the way!!
    That is the really fun part!!

    Requirements:

    100% Cotton
    Prewashing or not is up to you

    Sign up:

    Just post on the thread if you are willing to enter a wall hanging.
    There will be no end to the sign up.
    If anyone wants to catch up and send in a wall hanging by Oct 31st that is fine with me.

    Size and Type of Quilt Block:

    A wall hanging should be smaller than a lap quilt but larger than a mug rug.
    You can use any type of quilt block and any style any colors.
    Ebellishments are a fun way to add to your wall hanging if you like

    Layout and Quilting Your Wall Hanging:

    You can put your top together any way you want to. You can add more blocks
    the same size or smaller or anything you like.
    Setting design can be as simple as sewing your quilt blocks together or adding
    sashing between blocks or you can use your creativity and make up anything
    you can dream up.

    You can quilt it or tie it or any method you want to use.
    If you have anyone else quilt it please remember to give credit where it is due.

    I hope you decide to join us and have a lot of fun!!


    Please make sure to read the general rules that apply to all swaps here at the Quilting Board: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    This sounds fun...my only concern is dh and my only son is getting married in July, which is awesome...and keeping me busy! I am so tempted to sign up, but I don't want to commit to something I can't finish...lets see, I bet I can do June and July blocks end of July, then go from there...lol...So, lets throw caution to the wind, and sign me up!

    Congrats to your son and you on the upcoming wedding!! It's such an exciting time!

    Thanks for joining!! You actually have until the end of Oct to get your wall hanging done and a picture turned in. So if you need to rearrange your time to do it that isn't a problem for me.

    I've never done anything as small as a wallhanging but count me in too! My weakness is the actual quilting part so I need to start practicing....

    I love wall hangings and making one for a swap sounds like fun to me. This would be a good time to make a Thanksgiving or Christmas one. So, add me to the list!

    I am with you on the quilting part! I have been a long time hand quilter...only been machine quilting the last 2 years or so....and when I say years, I use that term loosely...lol...I am great with the 1/8" away from the ditch stitch, and outline stitch...but the fmq is something I just struggle with...my lqs "sisters" tell me I am too hard on myself...all I know is if I am doing it by machine, and I don't like it, I revert back to hand quilting...so, you and I can cheer each other on, eh??!!

    Thanks Rhonda, and that's what I figured is I will have time to work on it after the wedding...and yes, dh and I are so very excited! As I already said, ds is our only child, and he is marrying such a dear girl...July will be a busy month for me, ds wedding, and he also will be 27 in July, and my lqs is having our annual Shop Hop in July...so busy times...but the happy of it far outweighs anything else!
    Regards,

    This looks interesting. I do have a question .... Does the wall hanging have to be made in 4 blocks?
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Sorry to take so long to answer. I've been tied up helping my mom.

    For this first swap yes it will need to be 4 quilt blocks. But you can use any method you want and put them together with any thing you want to add. You can use more than 4 or add smaller or larger blocks into the mix. You can use differant size blocks not all 4 have to be the same size or the same type.

    This can be but doesn't have to be a 4 block with sashing wall hanging. The sky's the limit on how you do the 4 blocks and how you put the top together.

    If this one goes over well we may do an anything goes next time.

    I am in! But what is a Mug rug? That term is not one I have heard before! I have a really cool idea, I will do my June block this weekend.

    And let me know if I am correct after we finish with out wall hanging we swap them at the end?

    I am giving a hint of what I have in my Mind: Black and white with a touch of Red ~
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    A mug rug is a mini quilt that you use for setting your coffee mug on and there is usually room for snack on it too.
    Type mug rug into search up above and you should see all hte threads on here about ones people have made.

    Yes at the end of the 4 months I will send out randomly addresses to everyone to send your wall hanging to another player in the swap. Until then noone will know who is getting which wall hanging! Oh the suspense! LOL
