Link to original discussion thread http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=296024.0

This swap is to make a mini quilt for your partner! We are only going to swap the mini quilt itself, no extras so we can focus on making the quilt. The size of the quilt should be between 1 and 2 feet square, with any size, shape, and dimensions that fits within those parameters. So 12 x 18 inches is ok, and so is a 15 inch circle, but any one side shouldnt be smaller than 12 inches or longer than 24 inches.
Use whatever methods you want to make a lovely art quilt for your partner! Piecing, embroidery, hand dying fabric, adding beads or charms, etc.
Since this is a longer swap I want everyone to know that they need to keep in contact both with the organizer and their partner. Im not going to implement anything as rigid as weekly check-ins, but post try to post to the thread at least every couple of weeks and please dont leave your partner or myself hanging if we pm you!  Please make sure you post in this thread for updates as soon as you sign-up/think about signing up.  Smiley

5.

Are you someone that really wants to have one of these themes crafted for you, or are you ok if your partner does a little stalking to come up with other themes you might like?

Do you have any allergies severe enough to prevent you from being partnered with someone? (ie, if you are only a tiny bit allergic to cats like me, dont put it down, but if someone sending something from a house with a cat will make you sick, please list it)

Do you have allergens like pets (specific) or smoking in your house?

Anything else you would like your partner to know?

This sounds like fun! I've never made a quilt before though...

Aw, heck. I've got til July to learn, right?  Tongue

Actually, I've always wanted to sit down and make a quilt and this may be the motivation I need. And I've got SO MUCH FABRIC from when I was in my "make tons of purses but don't stay motivated and actually line them and put straps on" phase.

I'll send my info later in the day!

Yay, I fixed a couple things on the sign-up for clarification (don't worry if you already sent yours in, that's how I realized my goof)
