    Cool Sign Up July 2013 47th Doll Quilt Swap - Self Portrait and/or Where I Live

    Doll Quilt Swap #47 Ė July 2013

    Theme: Self Portrait and/or Where I Live. And thatís all Iím going to say except Ö donít be boring.

    Everyone is welcome to join us no matter what your skill level may be. Making and sharing doll quilts offers a wonderful opportunity to try new techniques, use up scraps in your stash Ė or an excuse to buy new fabric Ė and itís a great way to make new quilty friends.

    Here are the details. I know they are long and boring, but please read them. Really!

    As always, rules for this swap also agree with the general guidelines for all Quilt Board Swaps Ė Read here http://www.quiltingboard.com/member-...-a-t20154.html

    You know the drill Ö


    SIGN UP: Easy As 1-2-3 - 4
    1. To join the fun, just send me a PM no later than NOON (EST) on June 30, 2013
    2. You will not be able to sign up if you have any outstanding quilts from previous months Ė except for the current month.
    3. Please let me know whether you are able to swap internationally as we have a few members who are outside the USA.
    4. Let me know you have read the guidelines and make sure your QB mailbox isnít full.

    Partner Assignment: Partners will be assigned on May 1st. Bookmark this thread for partner assignment Ė or find your partner at our Group Home here http://www.quiltingboard.com/groups/...group-g14.html

    Mailing Deadline: You must have your quilt in the mail no later than July 31, 2013. If you do not think you can meet that deadline, you might want to wait a month or two until your schedule frees up and you donít feel pressured.

    DOLL QUILT SWAP GUIDELINES

    SIZE:
    Doll quilts can be between 12Ēx12Ē to 24Ēx24Ē or any size or shape in between. If your finished quilt measures 24" x 26", or 11" x 13" it's fine. No worries or excessive rules for this swap.

    MATERIALS: Most participants use cotton, but you can use any other natural fiber like wool, linen or silk.

    EMBELLISHMENTS: Let your creativity rule. Add beads, buttons, ribbon, lace, rickrack, or whatever if you feel like it. Or add nothing at all. Itís up to you.

    CONSTRUCTION: Pick your technique. Doll quilts may be pieced, appliquťd, wholecloth, quilted by hand or quilted by machine. All quilts should have binding.

    LABEL: Please add a label or sign your quilt on the back with your name and the date. It is a wonderful record of your work and years from now, it will help your partner remember who made this magnificent work of art! If your quilt is reversible and you donít want to sign it, please include a card or attach a removable tag with your Quilting Board name or real name if different.

    MANNERS: Donít for get to thank your partner. A simple post on the thread for the month is terrific, but a PM is nicer still. Please leave feedback for your partner.

    HELP YOUR HOSTESS KEEP TRACK: When you mail off your quilt, please send me a PM. Also send one when you receive a quilt youíre your partner. This will help me keep track and to ensure that everyone receives a quilt.

    PHOTOS: At the Quilting Board we love photos! A big part of the doll quilt fun is seeing what everyone has created, but as with most things in life, there is a little etiquette to follow. Usually the receiver will post a photo, but not everyone has a camera, so please photograph your quilt before you send it just in case. Donít post a photo until your partner receives your quilt so the surprise wonít be spoiled. If you cannot post a photo, please ask your partner to do so.

    PARTNERS: Once sign up has ended, I will assign partners. I will try to pair you with someone you havenít had as a swap partner previously. You will make a quilt for your partner and s/he will make one for you. Please PM your partner to share physical addresses. Do not post addresses on this thread. Although there is a theme and it is often senderís choice, it is always nice to ask if your partner has any preferences.


    COMMUNICATION: If something unexpected comes up and for any reason you cannot meet the deadline or need to drop out of the swap, please let me know as soon as you know. If you take the time to communicate any difficulties, I can make sure things work out favorably for you and your partner with no hard feelings as a result. If, however, you just disappear off the face of the earth, you will not be permitted to participate in future swaps until you make good on your commitment.

    I am signing up for July. I have the perfect fabric for where I live.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Kind of excited about this one... There is a Civil War block called Richmond. Then there's Sweet Virginia Breeze, City of the Monuments. I might have to try my hand at printing on fabric some of my favorite Richmond pictures.

    Has anyone had done the pictures to fabric transfer? How is it holding up?

    Is "boring" similar to "beauty" - as in it's the eye of the beholder?
    The field is so wide open, I bet we'll see quite a diverse group of minis this month. I'm going to be like you Kitsy and try something new too.

    Just have fun. But not boring fun because fun isn't boring.

    Sorry I was MIA yesterday. Went to the dentist for a cleaning which ended up being what I imagine is similar to being water boarded. I seriously felt like I was drowning and that triggered a lovely meltdown. Hint to dental hygienists - when you are spraying a hose full of water into someone's mouth don't tell them to breathe through their nose and then spray water up there too. I think I will clean my own teeth from now on.

    I am trying raw edge applique for the first time but I have to take off my 'perfectionist' hat before I start sewing. I think I have fallen out of the box into the arty side of quilting for this month...Yikes !!!

    Sharon, someone said making a room with lots of fabric in it and a hand sticking out as that is where they live. I live among cornfields so . . . I had earlier thought of a doghouse, haha.
