Details of swap:

This swap is to make a mini quilt for your partner! We are only going to swap the mini quilt itself, no extras required, 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.

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

Anything else you would like your partner to know?
