We are full ... actually overfull but that's okay, I just added 2 extra spots.  That's what happens when you get a rush at the end and you can't say no to anyone  Grin

I am just waiting for one person to reply to a question and I'll get the pairing done.  Should have them sent tomorrow morning, at the latest.

This one seems like in might be good for a beginner... https://www.pinterest.com/pin/444308319472665939/

If anyone has any suggestions for more beginner patterns I would love them.

The Disappearing 9 Patch is a great one for beginners. 

Log Cabin is another good one.  Pinterest has many good examples of easy mini quilts.

This is the 13th swap I've personally organized on Craftster, not counting those I've also co-organized ... I don't remember any time in the past there has been so much kerfuffle over details.

I tried to clearly, and politely, make it known in the first post that we were swapping pieced mini quilts.  When the question came in about applique, I answered I'd prefer not to include it this round.  Then it was pointed out that one of my examples uses applique and rather than remove that picture, I chose to be flexible and allow some.  I have swapped numerous mini quilts outside Craftster and it's not an unusual 'rule' that they be pieced only.

I'm trying to word the next part kindly (and have retyped it more times than I can count) ... I don't need to hear any more opinions about applique.  I'm the organizer of this swap and the details are set as they are for this round.

I would like to do this swap, but I am a beginner quilter. Not sure if I should sign up unless there are more beginners.

There are other beginners and you're welcome to join!

The hedgehog mini-quilt - which is freaking adorable - has to have appliqued glasses.  Otherwise, that is some amazingly precise piecing for the black glasses.

You are correct, the hedgehog does have applique glasses and I totally forgot about that fact when I said 'for this round I'll say just pieced'

So to clarify, if your pieced quilt needs some applique to improve it's looks, use it.  What I don't want to see is a solid piece of fabric with everything appliqued on top of it.  That's not a mini quilt, in my opinion, it's an art quilt.  Use applique sparingly.
