Hey peeps! I'm planning on starting another round of the Mini Art Quilt Swap soon! I'm kinda thinking if sign-ups started fairly soon to have sendouts in early April. Does that sound good? Here are the last rounds:

I'd love to participate again, but I've got some really intense family stuff going on right now and I need to be mindful to not over-extend myself. I can't imagine missing a round though! I love the MAQ swaps.
I guess it will depend on when the swap starts, how long the crafting period is, and how my mom is doing.

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!

Ok, I'm thinking of starting sign-ups next week, running them for a week or a week and a half, and sendouts the second week of april. Sound ok?? That gives a solid 6 weeks of crafting which should be more than sufficient.

I wish I had the time and the skill to join this swap-but the galleries have really inspired me. I want to dig out my fabric and leather scraps and make a steampunk one for my room now!

I was thinking if I get my other swaps finished up, I might like to try a practice one.

Anyone have any tips for beginners, maybe something you wish you knew before you began making these?

That it's addictive? Cheesy I would suggest to anyone just starting to maybe do a practice one first just so you're not too stressed out when it comes time to make one for your partner. But I do have a question in the sign-up that is based on skill level (are you a beginner, intermediate, or advanced quilter) and I match people based on experience first, then allergies and interests so if you're new to quilting you don't have to be worried about having a partner that is way more advanced.

Sadly, I think I'm going to have to sit this round out.  I have so many quilts on my list at the moment, that if I hope to finish any of them, I should start working instead of dreaming up new items to add to the list.  I'm sure I'll be back for another round in the future though.  Cheesy
