32  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Lap Quilt Swap 5 - FALL on: September 12, 2009 06:28:27 AM
If we only get enough for one group in the next few days I will just do one group. No biggie and less work on this end. Is that ok with everyone? Only one person signed up for 2 groups so far anyways.

34  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Lap Quilt Swap 5 CLOSED - Send 10/8/2009 for fabric; 12/22/2009 for blocks on: September 07, 2009 09:22:29 AM
GALLERY: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=321561.0

Swap name: Lap Quilt Swap 5
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: chinarockfishakm
Sign-up date range: 09/07 to 09/19/2009
Date to send item by: 10/8/2009 for fabric; 12/22/2009 for blocks

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 24....You may sign up for one group if you are a newbie, and veterans may sign up for one or two. To give more people a chance to get a spot I will give veterans wanting 2 spots only one at first. After the 3rd day of signups I will add veterans to the 2nd group if they wanted two. Make sense?

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? US and Canada, but be prepared to pay postage if you sign up. Somebody signed up from Mexico and I think thats ok since its just as far as Canada but in the other direction.

All ages allowed? Or 18+?  18+

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: NO
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: Sure will!

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

*When you send me PMs, the more specific you can make the subject line the better!

You will make 11 blocks from a pattern of your choice out of the fabric that is mailed to you plus one for yourself out of your own fabric.


You will be responsible for sending a minimum of 3 different fabric, totaling 3/8 of a yard, to each participant in your group. No piece should be smaller than 9"x9"  though larger pieces will accommodate for block design and mistakes. The more variety the better since this will give your partners more freedom for the block construction. You can prewash your fabric if you want but it's not necessary if that's not what you normally do.

If you have any particular idea or theme you would like your blocks to follow add a note along with your fabric. The requests do not have to be honored but it may give your partners ideas on where to go with your fabric. If you think you might want to add fabric from your own stash PLEASE contact group members first to see if it's ok. They might have a very specific color scheme in mind and only want their own fabrics included. Each block will measure 12.5" x 12.5". You may make the same block or all different blocks for group members. It's all up to you. Be sure to send back all extra scraps to their respected owners with their completed block. The finished quilt will be lap sized but this will vary depending on how each participant finishes their quilt.
Please only join if you are confident in your abilities to construct quilt blocks and have done so before. Everyone deserves an equal chance of getting a quality block for their final finished project.

Please mail your fabric in a Ziploc type bag with a self addressed return label. Any type of label will do as long as it can be taped or stuck onto the return envelope. Please don't send the bags with the slider as it will add $$ to the postage. Gotta save money here!!

All the fabrics must be sent by 10/09/2009 with a DC# if mailing domestically.  

All completed blocks must be sent by 12/22/2009.   DC # for mailing finished blocks is required.

People sending internationally do not have to get dc's, but they will need to save their postal receipts as proof of sending in case their packages don't make it.

Everyone will need to reserve themselves a spot in the gallery for posting their finished blocks. Just go post a comment in the thread and you have reserved your spot. You will go back and edit your post to include pictures of your finished blocks. Please do not start discussion until everyone has reserved a spot.  I will open the gallery after signups are complete.

Participants will be asked to update every Monday on their progress. Please notify organizer/co-organizer of mailed and received fabrics and blocks. Notify in the event that you may be late sending. Late is better than never but at least we will know you still intend on doing so. If for some reason you feel you cannot finish your blocks be prepared to mail back everyone's fabrics. It's not fair that you would get to keep the fabric.

Feedback will be given as soon as you send all your completed blocks and they are received.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer: chinarockfishakm

I have the colors marked off in the program and in a printout too. I have a few 30's fabrics right now so im just going to look what blocks are a little easier in those colors and start there.

Just waiting on word from klum on co-organizing and we should be getting going on this. How would everyone feel about 2 groups of 12 instead of 3? That way we can still do the swap but it might be more manageable. I was just thinking about leaving the rules and requirements pretty much the same since it has seemed to work before. I'll post back when we get something started Grin

I would be willing to run another installment if there is enough interest. It would follow the exact format of the previous swaps.
