Open, Open, Open!

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418377.0





Hey all, who's ready for another round of the Mini Art Quilt Swap? The last one started in March, yikes!

As far as timeline, I'm thinking sign-ups right after Christmas, partners around Jan 5th and sendouts around Valentine's Day. 5-6 weeks should be plenty of time even though we've had a bit more in the past.

Quote
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 (12 to 24 inches), 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.

I've truthfully been avoiding this swap every time it comes up. Not because it isn't AWESOME BEYOND BELIEF...but I can only do block quilts -.-U I don't do curves or applique. All the other quilters intimidate me with their mad skills and I can honestly say whatever I make would be inferior Tongue (Plus my machine is an evil demon spawn from hell sometimes >.>)

I love this swap, I think I'll have to join again! My only regret is that we won't have partners earlier, I'm off work 12/24-1/1 and it would be the perfect time to sew a mini. I'll just have to find something else to work on for that time period - like one of my many WIPs  Grin

Incidentally, there are precious few MAQ to be found on Pinterest. This must be fixed. We need to represent!

My life has changed into such a full schedule in the last year or so, and I find that I don't get a lot of time for random floating around craftster as often as I once had.
 However, this is one swap I will ALWAYS come out of the lurking shadows for!!! Best swap ever, always great people, amazing partners and really stunning galleries. I always love to up the ante in this swap and make something really unique!  I'm so in! Cheesy

Just started an art quilt board, too. I'm sure many of the full-sized art quilts can be inspiration for mini ones!

I'm finding myself being drawn to trees, flowers, and birds..........

I haven't felt all too crafty lately...the thought of making another doll makes me insane.  Then all of a sudden I felt like making myself a lap quilt (I never make ANYTHING for myself), then got on a mug rug kick, so I think I may be all over this one again.

You can't ignore this one! You made the MAQ used as a pic for this thread! And I am the lucky recipient of that great MAQ!
I hung it up today, pfew, how about that!? Not because I don't like it, just me being lazy...

Unfortunately I can't join you girls. I am way too busy writing a paper, research and some sort of essay. I really need my time to do it properly. So sorry. I had lots of fun!

I will stalk the gallery though! I already wish you all lots of fun!

I completely understand that! I am getting so excited....I got a Hobby Lobby gift card for Christmas....only problem, the closest one to me is over an hour away....I think I'm gonna wait until I get partners for this and maybe head that way to check it out...of course, there is a JoAnn's nearby that I frequent..A LOT....I am so excited to make my first MAQ.
