    September Mini Quilt Swap

    September Mini Quilt swap

    September theme “Makers choice……something special just for your partner”

    Sign-ups close August 31st, 2016


    For this swap we will be making miniature quilts. The suggested size is 6-18 inches or anywhere in between, finished. Square, round, rectangle, hexi, it’s up to you.
    (If you and your partner decide to go slightly bigger, that is up to the two of you)


    The theme is “Makers choice……”
    (I am hoping that you will find out something about your partner and make something special just for them)
    The little quilt must have a top, batting and backing and must be bound. You can use any method you wish to fashion the top, piecing, appliqué, whole cloth, thread painting etc.
    This will be a partnered swap.)
    Please PM tlambing by August 31st to sign up. I will then match up names and get them out to you soon after. You will have until September 30th to mail your tiny quilt to your partner.
    This is a FIRM DEADLINE! Please don’t sign up unless you can commit fully to this deadline.


    Please pm the following info to tlambing if you wish to join us:


    *if you’re a returning player, I have your info just send me your name and any changes*

    Board name:

    Real name:
    Phone # :

    Do you have any allergens (cats, dogs, smoker etc.)

    As soon as names are given, please contact your partner right away.
    Please contact me asap if you are having trouble getting in contact.
    Please continue to post on the thread throughout the swap. Let everyone know of your progress, post sneak peeks and encourage other swappers It’s so much fun seeing everyones progress and sharing in our quilting friendship.
    Any swapper that fails to follow through and does not contact me and their partner will be banned from any of my future swaps and will receive bad (swap)feedback. I know that sometimes things happen that are out of our control, I certainly would take this into consideration, but you MUST COMMUNICATE.

    Not going to have time. I have my Boom blocks, fair exhibits, company, and quilt show exhibits to get done. Plus tennis elbow still and doc said I have to limit my quilting. When he said that, I grabbed him on the coat and told him that I must quilt! Like that went over well. Good thing the doctor has a sense of humor.

    QuilterMomma, Tennis Elbow can be just awful to get rid of. Everything aggravates it. So sorry you have been side lined by this. Take the time you need to get well.

    Hello Mim, Glad you are playing.

    I was hoping to get to participate in Sept. but I'm still living between two houses, probably for most of the month of Sept.

    Don't worry Teresa, I will be joining in for October. This is my favorite swap. I think that people are just busy with school and vacations.

    Nedra and I have already PM'd. This should be interesting.

    In October I may not be able to join -- Our condo is all torn up. We will go west Sept 30 and stay in a motel or with relatives as the workmen have to move everything out so they can replace all the rugs. What a mess this has been -- since the beginning of August.

    Chasezz, both are so inviting. I have no drunkards paths in my collection so I would lean in that direction.

    How about you? Any theme, color, pattern you would like to see. Something you wouldn't normally do for yourself?
