As the current round is winding down and the gallery is just about complete, I know I'm ready for more cushion covers. How about you?


Photos taken from the gallery


Come on, look at all those lovely pillows. You know you want in  Smiley

The fabulous LimeRiot has volunteered to co-org with me so...who's up for it? Any thoughts on when to start? How about any tweaks to requirements from this round?

The first round has really been my favorite swap ever. I don't know if I really need any more cushions.... but it is sooo tempting. I had such amazing partners and I had such a blast.

Well, I'm still waiting for my 2nd cover from the first round but I'd consider doing another round.

My one suggestion would be making the pillow covers larger - I really don't want anymore 14" covers but I'd love one or two that are 18".

I don't really need more cushions either, but I always need covers. I love to change them out for new looks depending on the seasons and what mood I'm in.

That picture is so cool, Calabaza!! It's really fun to see all of those awesome covers in one place! 
I tried to pick just one. I failed  Smiley

YES YES - I want to do another round - I especially liked this round I just participated in - having one swap requirement is so great - it's easy to do and I had a blast in this one!!  I like the idea of 18" pillow covers for next round.  Variety is always good for me.  Smiley

Love that picture, Calabaza - the collage is so cool!!   Cheesy

Cool! I'm glad to see there is interest in another round.

Calabaza and I talked about maybe opening it up in a couple of weeks. That would give everyone in the current round time to finish everything up. Plus, there are sure to be more pillow covers for us to admire in the gallery soon Smiley!!

Wow!  Round one set the bar high, but I think the variety of people and styles makes it a very doable swap even for beginners!

I kicked myself for missing the last round so I am definitely in!  I love stalking and making things just for a specific partner...and I also love the idea of not a lot of pressure to make too much stuff...epic swaps tire me out! Cheesy

I think changing it up with 18 inch covers is a fun idea! A little bigger and they'll still fold up nicely for international shipping.

Lime and I are chatting about dates now. So far it looks like send-outs will be sometime in May and sign-ups in April. How's that for specific  Cheesy I promise we'll get that pinned down soon.

Yay, more cushions!

I have a suggestion for the questionnaire. I think it could be helpful if you asked what mediums people are comfortable using/what they would like to receive. Then after all the international people and allergy people are partnered you could use that information to help you partner the rest of the group.
