Any thoughts of extending the deadline on this swap?

Hi Lisa,

Our signup is actually closed (I was being an idiot and forgot to change the title); however, there has been some expressed interest in having a monthly square swap, so keep your eye out..

Im just curious what you all are doing/what preferences are  Is everyone making 12 identical quilt squares or would it be better if the two you send to each person were different since the finished quilt is going to be random designs?

I think that most, if not all of my squares will be slightly different, partially because I'm using fabrics I already have to make the squares in most of the cases (my stash is huge), partially because I have patterns I want to try/practice (don't worry, I'll only send the ones that work out), and partially because a bunch are going to be either crazy quilting or scrappy quilting, and those are never "regular."

What about other people?

I was planning on making one square that would be all the same to send to everyone (representing Chicago, where I live, though I am not sure how I am going to go about this.)  But the other squares will probably be random patterns.  I got a quilting book out of the library and am hoping to try some new techniques to make my squares (weaving, pleating, gathering, beading etc.)  I hope everyone is OK with that.....if you'd refer I can just make more traditional quilt blocks.  I am going to be using up fabric in my stash too, so no matter what, they will all be a little different.

Any chance of extending the deadline?  I think I may have been too ambitious when I signed up!!

I just received my squares from Dukesbean, too, and they're awesome.  I'm hoping to get photos soon.  I've started a thread in the Swap Gallery for people to post pictures of all the fabulous squares that are being swapped!  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32794.new#new

Yo swappers!  I seem to have a grip on things now and can probably make the deadline.  This is a fun swap, even though I'm not a fancy quilter!

btw: Jen: continuing the quilt square exchange is a great idea, esp on themes, esp if we can opt in or out depending on the month!

I'm going on vacation today and will post my squares on the road. I have a bit of handstitching to do on the train!  Should be in the post by Sat, but I probably won't be online again til Wed.
