    Sign up time for the fifth doll quilt swap! Here are the details:

    Doll Quilt Swap #5 -- September

    The doll quilt swaps continue to be popular so we're continuing with the fun! Here are links to the last four swaps.

    DOLL QUILT SWAP GUIDELINES

    SIZE: from 12”x12” to 24”x24”…any size or shape in between.

    MATERIALS: natural fibers/cotton, wool, linen

    EMBELLISHMENTS: if you want to use them, feel free…beads, rickrack, buttons, doilies, ribbon, lace…anything or nothing at all.

    CONSTRUCTION: Pieced, appliquéd, wholecloth, or yo-yos; quilted by hand or machine; and bound.

    LABEL: It is recommended that you attach a label to the back of your quilt. I know, this can be a bit scary for some people though, so it will not be a requirement. A label is however a very nice addition to any handmade quilt. Whether or not you decide to label your quilt, please do include a note with your quilt with your quilting board name, real name and contact information (snail mail address and/or email address, etc. so that they can thank you).

    PARTNERS: You will be paired with a partner for this swap. You will make a quilt for your partner and your partner makes one for you. Feel free to discuss color considerations, likes and dislikes, etc. between yourselves. You will also be responsible for securing delivery addresses.

    DUE DATE: The deadline for all quilts to be sent is September 30, 2009.

    COMMUNICATION: If for any reason you cannot meet the deadline or you need to drop out of this swap, please let me know as soon as you know. If you communicate any setbacks with me I can make sure things work out favorably for your partner, no hard feelings.

    SIGN UP: Sign up begins today and ends Monday, August 31, 2009. I’ll assign partners after that date.

    If you would like to sign up, send me a PM or reply to this thread. Please let me know if you are willing to send internationally as we have several members outside of the US.

    Here are some links for ideas:

    Do I have to wash the fabric? I really prefer working with fabric that is not washed, and leave it up to the recipient to wash and get that old fashioned quilted look if they want it. If not, then it will stay unwashed. I didn't see it in the rules, but i KNOW there are preferences around here. Let me know as I'm about to dig into my stash and get working!

    It's totally up to you Esqmommy on washing. I'm not a pre-washer either. Do what works for you!

    So glad to see some "new faces" to this swap! It's going to be fun... :D
