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.*

*New round 7* If your partner expresses interest in a mini quilt in the form of a sign/banner or a table runner, and you would like to craft that for them, you may disregard the above dimensions to make a more rectangular, longer piece. This is an easygoing swap, I'm more concerned that you make your partner happy than follow my arbitrary rules Wink

Use whatever methods you want to make a lovely art quilt for your partner! Traditional piecing, English paper piecing, Foundation paper piecing, embroidery, applique, thread sketching, hand dyeing fabric, adding beads or charms, etc.

Everyone should know that they need to keep in contact both with the organizer, co-organizer, and their partner. Im not going to implement anything as rigid as weekly check-ins, but please try to post to the thread at least every couple of weeks and please dont leave your partner or myself hanging if we pm you!  

Please make sure you post in this thread for updates as soon as you sign-up/think about signing up.  

*I will leave accurate feedback regarding sending on time, meeting swap requirements, and having good communication with organizer and partner. My definition of good communication is sending pm's to both organizer, co-organizer, and partner when BOTH sending AND receiving, answering pm's from organizer, co-organizer, and partner in a timely manner (within 1 day), and letting organizer and partner know if you will be out of town, if you will be late, or if you know you will be unable to communicate for a set amount of time.

*Organizer reserves the right to refuse entry to the swap based on poor performance in previous swaps with this organizer or poor feedback in swapper's profile.


If you want to participate, information to send to MareMare :

You must answer all questions! And please list 5 themes where 5 themes are asked for, not fewer. More is ok though.  Wink Thanks!

Oh!  Yayayayayay!

Aw, I'm glad you're excited!

You guys, I don't think I'd cleaned out my Craftster PMs since the last round...just deleted 42 pages of PMs lol! (I have a very specific way of organizing my inbox when I'm running a swap, basically if it's in my inbox it's "to-do" and once it's taken care of, ie a sign-up is approved and added to swap, I move it out of my inbox and under a label). So I'm ready now! Cheesy
