I would like to do this swap, but I am a beginner quilter. Not sure if I should sign up unless there are more beginners.

There are other beginners and you're welcome to join!

The hedgehog mini-quilt - which is freaking adorable - has to have appliqued glasses.  Otherwise, that is some amazingly precise piecing for the black glasses.

You are correct, the hedgehog does have applique glasses and I totally forgot about that fact when I said 'for this round I'll say just pieced'

So to clarify, if your pieced quilt needs some applique to improve it's looks, use it.  What I don't want to see is a solid piece of fabric with everything appliqued on top of it.  That's not a mini quilt, in my opinion, it's an art quilt.  Use applique sparingly.

I've started feedback for everyone who has signed up.  I'm SO looking forward to this swap myself and seeing what everyone makes.

This is a Mini Quilt Swap, not an Art Quilt swap
there is a difference and I'd like people to understand that before signing up

A Mini Quilt has a pieced top, batting center and backing.  It's quilted together and bound around the edges.  It does not have embellishments.  Use applique sparingly if necessary

I am definitely still interested in running this swap and planned to start soon but there seem to be so many swaps going right now that I'm not sure when a good time is.

This is awesome - Love the way you laid it out! I can not believe you took on something like this just days before Christmas.

Me either!  What was I thinking but it's done now and the next one won't be made as quickly.
