    Smile Sign Up for June 2012 Doll Quilt Swap Closes Noon EST May 31st

    Sign up time for the Quilting Board's 34rd Doll Quilt Swap!

    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 – or an excuse to buy new fabric – and it’s a great way to make new quilty friends.

    Here are the details. I know they are long and boring, but please read them.
    (There might be a quiz [IMG]file:///C:/Users/CHRIST~1/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtml1/01/clip_image002.gif[/IMG])

    Doll Quilt Swap #34 – June 2012

    Theme: Celebrate June There are so many wonderful things about June. For those of us in the northern hemisphere, we’re enjoying the best part of Spring – and at the end of the month we have the Summer Solstice and the official start of Summer. It’s a month for Brides, for Dads, for Grads. It’s time to dig in the garden, smell the flowers and listen to the birds sing. For everyone in the southern hemisphere, let us know what June means to you! As always, the theme is optional, but if it's not for you, please let your partner know.

    DEADLINES:
    SIGN UP: Easy As 1-2-3
    1. To join the fun, just send me a PM no later than NOON (EST) on May 31, 2012.
    2. Please let me know whether you are able to swap internationally as we have a few members who are outside the USA.
    3. Let me know you have read the guidelines and make sure your QB mailbox isn’t full.

    Partner Assignment: Partners will be assigned on June 1st or maybe sooner. Find your partner at our Group Home here

    Mailing Deadline: You must have your quilt in the mail no later than June 30th. 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 don’t feel pressured.

    DOLL QUILT SWAP GUIDELINES

    SIZE:
    Doll quilts can be between 12”x12” to 24”x24” 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. It’s up to you.

    CONSTRUCTION: Pick your technique. Doll quilts may be pieced, appliquéd, 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 don’t want to sign it, please include a card or attach a removable tag with your Quilting Board name or real name if different.

    MANNERS: Don’t 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 you’re your partner. This will help me keep track and to ensure that everyone receives a quilt. Once your partner has received your quilt, I will leave positive feedback for you.

    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. Don’t post a photo until your partner receives your quilt so the surprise won’t 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 haven’t 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 sender’s 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.

    DOLL QUILT GROUP – Besides this thread, there is a Doll Quilt group on the Quilting Board. There you can upload photos, start discussions on ideas for themes, share resources about techniques for doll quilts and other mini quilts, and whatever you want to do. It’s your group, so you decide!

    Hi Lynnie,
    I love AFL football. Go CATS and Kangaroos. I have to cheer both teams. LOL.

    I am in again for June. So many choices. Weddings, graduations, summertime activities, etc. Hmmm will have to think about this one.

    Oh by the way....Lynnie and I bought these templates at the quilt show. They are made by www.fliplak.com. I made one up in the fan pattern and showed it to my quilt class. They were all amazed and thought it was so neat. But they are not sold anywhere in the USA.Name:  DSC_0084.JPG

    PS This square if from the quilt that we are making in my quilt class. It is called the ABC of quilting. It is a free pattern on lynbrown.com site. We are now up to letter J. It will take the whole year to do.

    Oh gosh I will find the templates and have a play this week. The fan ones look great, did you find it easy to do with the iron on interfacing?

    Got everyone's PM's! Will be responding today. It was a beautiful weekend ... too nice to be indoors on the computer ... and I have the aches and pains to prove it after playing in the garden. Right now it's raining cats and dogs, so lots of time to respond to everyone!
    So ... as we get into July and August ... just remember that I live in a beach community so I might be a little slow getting back to you. There are waves to ride and fish to catch out there!

    Oh no, not yet. I just haven't had a chance to respond to sign up PMs to let each person know I received it! Sorry for the confusion!

    I'm pretty sure this is what you do. At the top of the page there is a "Thread Tools" click on that and a menu drops down and select the subscribe to this thread, and you will get a window with Notification, on the box that has "through my control panel" you can click on the little arrow to the right. Then you can select the control panel or 3 different selections for updates by email --instant, daily, or weekly.

    oops then click the blue "add subscription" box at the bottom of the subscribe area selection.
