    Wall Hanging Swap for July - October 2017

    Welcome to our Wall Hanging Swap!

    You have 4 months to make a wall hanging of your choice.

    Size and Type of Wall Hanging:

    A wall hanging should be smaller than a lap quilt but larger than a mug rug.
    You can use any technique/ any style / any colors.
    Embellishments are a fun way to add to your wall hanging if you like

    Sign Up list

    There is no deadline.
    The Sign Up list is just to see who is interested in joining us.
    But please remember that the only list that counts is the Ready to Mail list at the end of the 4 month swap.

    Ready to Mail list

    Ready to Mail list will be posted the middle of October.
    If you are not on this list you will not get an address to send to.
    Deadline - MIDNIGHT central time last day of October 2017

    I Need:
    Please send me an updated info even if you have been swapping with me for awhile. I seem to be missing some info I need.

    Real name
    your address
    send international or not
    Allergy info
    Pet and smoking information
    Would like an email address
    Phone number would be appreciated

    As long as you have a wall hanging ready to mail by the last day of October you can join us any time!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Addresses Sent Out:

    I will be sending addresses to each swapper at midnight of the last day of October!!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    You will then send your wall hanging to the quilter who's address you get.
    You will receive from a different quilter than the one you send to.

    This is not a partner swap.


    IMPORTANT:

    Please send me a pm when you mail and when you receive!!
    Only those who send me a pm to let me know they are ready to mail will be on the mailing list.
    Anyone who is not done on time may enter theirs in the next swap.

    Please Post Pics of:

    Your fabrics
    Embellishments you are using
    Progress pictures
    Finished wall hanging - since noone knows who gets what -not even me-there is no surprise ruined by posting your pictures.

    Prewashing or not is up to you

    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

    I'll have to start thinking about something "fallish". Love those warm colors. What are the rest of you thinking?

    Fall yeesh. I'm already dreading it. I really am not a cold weather person. Summer should be nine months long and spring three. I like the pretty colors of fall but that's about it.

    I hear ya' ube, I'm the same way. At least in the fall I have Florida sunshine to look forward to. About the only time I miss Wyoming in the winter is at Christmas time. Snow Christmas Eve ...maybe Christmas Day and then it can be gone. Only thing is it just doesn't happen that way

    R-sea. This swap doesn't have any themes. You make what you like. Choose anything you can thing of that you might like to try. There is really only one basic rule, larger than a mug rug and smaller than a lap quilt. other than that, anything goes.

    Thanks Ube, Maybe if I do one with spring it might bring warmth into your home. At this stage I have no idea what I will do

    There is plenty of time to decide and pick and choose and do. I usually change my mind several times before I settle on something.

    Thinking about the Christmas wreath twister pattern which would be fun to make or maybe a turkey theme in time for Thanksgiving.....who knows? I will have to give it some thought.
    Sew many Quilts.......so little time!

    I rarely use holidays or seasons as starting points for the quilts I make. I can remember three in three years. I just see something I like and go with it.

    I do like those twister wreathes. Fun to make.

    R-sea no matter the season we are in the person getting it will enjoy it when they are in that season. Just make whatever makes you happy to make!! Having fun with this is is the only real consideration.

    I have a question for those who are willing to mail internationally.
    I had a thought that if those people can mail a week or so early then the ones waiting will receive their WH closer to when the US people get theirs.

    I hate seeing someone waiting a week or 2 longer than everyone else.

    If this idea is acceptable I can post it as optional in the Swap rules next time.

    I don't want to push anyone to get done ahead of time. but some are just naturally early.
    Please don't take this as you having to get done quicker than you'd like. It's just a way to even out the waiting time.

    I asked our international mailers this month and with the exception of R-sea all of our internationals have been received already. Hopefully R-sea will see hers this week also.

    Just so you know most international mailings will take between 10 - 20 days and some have been longer.
    I just think if we can get them out a week earlier then it won't seem so long for those waiting on an international pkg.

    so make sure you let me know if you are willing to mail internationally and if you are willing to be done a week early.

    Mailing international does not mean you HAVE to be ready to mail early!
    You can be willing to do international and not have to be ready early.

    Thanks everyone!!
