- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

- Has posted at least 15 times: YES/NO
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES/NO
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES/NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES/NO
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES/NO
- Participant lives in the United States: YES/NO
   - If yes, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES/NO
   - If no, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES/NO

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. If partners agree you may send a couple of tiny extras, but they are not required and you must check with your partner to see if it is ok.  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.  

*I will leave accurate feedback regarding sending on time, meeting swap requirements, and having good communication with organizer and partner. My definition of good communication is sending pm's to both organizer and partner when BOTH sending AND receiving, answering pm's from organizer and partner in a timely manner (within 1 day), and letting organizer and partner know if you will be out of town or if you know you will be unable to communicate for a set amount of time.

*Organizer reserves the right to refuse entry to the swap based on poor performance in previous swaps with this organizer or poor feedback on swapper's profile.


If you want to participate, information to send to BOTH MareMare and pjherbert:


You must fill out all questions! And please list 5 themes where 5 themes are asked for, not less. Thanks!

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Mini Art Quilt Swap 3
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name and Mailing address including the country, formatted for shipping:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 13 years old (yes/no)

Do you live in the United States: YES/NO
   - If yes, do you understand that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES/NO
   - If no, do you understand that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES/NO

Please state that you understand that communication is very important in this swap, and you need to stay in touch with the organizer and your partner("poor communication" feedback will be given accordingly).

Would you describe your quilting skills as beginner, intermediate, or advanced?

What are your favorite colors:

What are some of the colors in the room of the house you might display this in:

What colors do you dislike:

What patterns/shapes/objects do you like:

What patterns/shapes/objects do you dislike:

Any specific fabric or quilt patterns you really like (ie, you  have really strong feelings towards paisley fabric or star type pattern quilts)?

Any specific fabric or quilt patterns you really dislike?

Please list 5 themes/ideas to help your partner know the kinds of things you might like (they can be more specific, ie dolphins, or less specific, ie the ocean):
1.
2.
3.
4.
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?

Are you someone that is really helped by having a set list to craft from, or do you prefer to be a little freer and do some research/stalking?

Would you be ok with your art quilt containing 3D elements such as beads, sequins, charms, etc? This might have to do with how you plan to use it (ie, if you might use it as a centerpiece/table runner maybe you won't want  3D elements).

Do you plan on or think you might possibly use 3d elements in the art quilt you make?

Do you have an idea what you would use your art quilt for?

If yes, is there anything specific that the sender needs to know/do? (ie, a loop put on it would be good if you plan to hang it, please dont use 3d elements if its for a table, etc)

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 (list specific animal please) or smoking in your house?

Anything else you would like your partner to know?





IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

I'm wishy-washy right now. Might have to wait a couple weeks, because by then, all my current swaps will be done. I need to sit down with this "new" (Kenmore 605, from 1961 best I can find out) sewing machine and see how I feel about it. I have, however, learned some neat concepts that border on Art Quilts that I could use.


We'll see. I might sign up. Undecided. Cheesy Are there any others who would be super-beginners? That might tip my hand a bit. Wink
