    Wall Hanging Swap for March - June 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 June.
    If you are not on this list you will not get an address to send to.
    Deadline - MIDNIGHT central time last day of June 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 February you can join us any time!

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

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

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

    You will then send your wall hanging to the quilter who's address you get.
    You will receive from a differant 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 am happy to play again.

    Has everyone received from the last swap. Just curious?

    The snow storm in my area wasn't quite as bad as other locations so I feel happy about that. The call was for 2' of snow and we only got 7- 8", not much wind and didn't loose power. What a relief.

    peace

    It is always a little disappointing when you see a nice list of swappers and then not follow through for what ever the reason may be. Those that stay in the game truely enjoy the the doing and commit themselves to the swap. Some of us make the rounds in a lot of swaps.


    Come play!

    I'll be in again but won't start on it until we get back to Wyoming for the summer. I haven't received from the last swap yet so hopefully it will be here before we leave.

    Just so you all know jaba's wh was mailed on Mar. 3 so it is in the mail. but it is coming from Australia so it may take longer than most.

    I am going to see if we can track it. I'll let you know. I'm so sorry jaba that you have to wait so long.

    Sorry to be such a disappointment to you. Being sick with bronchitis for over 6 weeks was no fun, I can assure you. I guess I'd better reconsider this swap so I don't disappoint anyone again. I think this is the first time EVER in a swap that I was unable to follow through.

    Thank you Rhonda for the update! I figured it was on the way just wanted to keep it up to date and figured my partner had sent. It certainly will be very special when it arrives. Belfry you are certainly not a disappointment!! None of us know when the "bug" is going to bite......I certainly have been there myself

    Belfry I set this swap up so you can join in and if you aren't ready on time you are not letting anyone down. You can use that wh you were working on and join in the next swap.

    This way noone is left without a wh. and when there has been an oops and something fell through as in a wh that went missing in the mail I have several angels that love to jump in and help out so everyone gets a wh. tho international can be a waiting game.

    So jump in and get to sewing and if you are ready on time then great!! and if you need more time to finish then join in the next swap!

    I hope you feel free to play with us!! we have some great swappers in this swap!!

    Belfrybat. You are not a disappointment. My comment was intended to do the exact opposite, I am sorry for any mis communication. I was trying to explain that sometimes things do get top priorities over a little quilt. Usually most things do. I am sorry if I disappointed you. I meant that whatever reason anyone needed to drop out, it is sad that they had to. I am so, so sorry. If I did damage to the swap I will drop out. I meant no harm.
    Peace

    Ube you didn't damage the swap. Everything is fine. I'm sure Belfry and others understand now that this is a forgiving swap. There is no pressure to get done at any particular time. We all understand life gets in the way and that is why I set this swap up so noone is left hanging. If a swapper isn't ready by mailing time they can use their WH in the next swap. So no pressure!

    Sorry too Belfry that you thought it meant you. It didn't. It was just a statement that so many show interest in the first few weeks then forget or things get in the way. It isn't intended as a slam to you or to anyone else. I just think it would be so much more fun with lots of little wall hangings being sent around.

    Well the weather is breaking here in Pa and we enjoyed 66 degrees today. The Wood Ducks are making daily trips to the big pond and my miniature window sill rose is showing signs of liking the warmer weather.

    We had about 8" last week and most of it is gone now except for some shady patches. Frogs started to sing again. When does spring like weather get to you in Ontario?

    End of April usually! I live in a valley, so we always get at least one more snowfall some time in April!

    I just got back from walking the dog, and it's -13 with the windchill with freezing rain in the forecast for the afternoon!

    Hello ladies, I am in for this swap. I have never done a wall hanging before but I would like to give it a shot, I will go to my local quilting shop and ask for assistance in how to do this. If I don't get it done in time for June then I will continue and use it for the next swap.

    Welcome Armylady2012. The possibilities are endless as to what you can make. Using your local shop for assistance is a great way to help you get started if you are not sure. Don't hesitate to ask questions right here too. Have fun and keep updating your progress. We all like to see what each other is up to.
    peace

    Ube quilting, Thank you for your encouragement. I have only done mug rugs and FPC swaps. Could you perhaps direct me to where I could find some patterns or do you have some you could share. Any assistance from any swapper will be greatly appreciated. I am not an imaginative person so It is easier if I have a pattern to go by. I have only been sewing for about 3 years and I am still learning. Thank you again.

    Armylady - the sky is the limit!!! Well, actually there are some limits in sizing LOL but otherwise, it's a free for all in design, shape, etc. If you look through previous threads under the swap, you'll see some awesome examples of wall hangings!

    Ube got one of mine that was likely way to big for a wall hanging, but I got carried away!!!! (remember that one Ube? with the embroidered flowers LOL)

    Welcome, and just be as creative as you want to be!
