   Red = PM me, we've got issues

Remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

IMPORTANT - When sending me any PM's about this swap please put APRON SWAP in the subject line.

There have been several people who have commented that the send-by date is on a weekend.  It is OK with me if you send after the weekend, just PM me and your partner so everyone is in the loop.
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Signature Qulit - Pen / Ink HELP on: September 15, 2007 09:56:02 PM
I am organizing a baby shower for two friends in a week or two and would like to have all the guests sign blocks for singature quilts for the new moms.  I'd like to use different colors of cotton for the squares, instead of the muslin I've seen on other quilts.

What type of pens / markers should I use?  I need something easy for the guests to use, something quick drying since we won't have much room, something that won't bleed into the fabric and something that will hold up through repeated washings ... you know, in case they actually want to USE the quilts for the babies.

I've never done one before and would appreciate the help of all you brilliant quilting craftsters out there.  Thank you thank you in advance!
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Apron Swap Anyone? on: August 23, 2007 01:00:17 PM
I'm an apron junkie, and haven't made myself a new one in a while.  But I'd much rather swap one than make one just for myself.  I'm thinking a few weeks of sign up and a few weeks of crafting time - maybe a month or so, since the fall is a busy time with back-to-school, holiday craft lists growing and so on.  Anyone game?  If so, I'll set up a swap.  It will be my first moderating!  Wahoo aprons!  Grin
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My First Quilt (Yippee) on: June 29, 2007 06:55:19 PM
My mom became an addict a few years ago.  Now whenever I go home for a visit, I root around in her fabric stash for a quickie project.  I figured I could make a go at a quilt.  Enough friends were having babies that I figured a small quilt could find a good home (and I was tired of knitting baby snugglers)

Turns out I didn't invent this quilt style ... though I probably should have figured out this was NOT my idea first.  It is a string quilt made out of tiny, girly print cottons and backed with more of the same.  The batting is thin cotton and it's tied with thick cotton yarn.

It's pretty small, about 2 1/2 feet x 3 feet.  But it only took a few hours.  Unfortunately, this seems like an excuse to buy more fabric.  I'm gonna need a second job Wink
