We are excited to announce the 13th round of the Doll Quilt Swap!
Sign ups will start here, there is a link at the bottom of this thread where you will go to enter your information.
There are a few changes this round, hopefully for the better. The swap is not going to be first come first served. We have set aside a certain % of places for newbies and the rest of the places will be assigned to oldies by means of a lottery draw.
The swap guidelines are as follows:
SIZE: from 9x9" to 20x20"…any size or shape in between.
MATERIALS: natural fibers/cotton, wool, linen
CONSTRUCTION: Pieced, appliquéd, quilted by hand or machine; and bound.
LABEL: It is recommended that you attach a label to the back of your quilt. I know, this can be a bit scary for some people though, so I will not make it a requirement. A label is however a very nice addition to any handmade quilt. Whether or not you decide to label your quilt, please do include a note with your quilt with your name and contact information (URL, blog, email address, etc. so that they can thank you).
SECRET: This will remain a secret swap. Your partner will not know your identity. If you need to get in contact with your partner do so thru your swap parent.
ACTIVITY: Please be sure to check in to the group periodically and check everyone's progress. Post sneak peeks of your WIP, and your completed quilt. Once you have received your quilt, post a pic of it on flickr, and email your thank you to your partner as soon as physically possible. Email or flickrmail your mama to let her know you received.
DUE DATE: The deadline for all quilts to be mailed is February 7, 2013 (international), and February 14, 2013 for those sending nationally . I like to plan on sending mine a week early…just in case life gets in the way and I'm delayed. There is nothing more disappointing than not receiving a package. Also, please email your swap parent when you have mailed your quilt. Delivery confirmation is required, within the U.S.
In addition to having a DEADLINE for sending BY a certain date, we also ask that you NOT SEND TOO EARLY. Part of the fun of this swap is the anticipation, and if you send out within the first month, your partner is essentially done. NO fun. Please SEND OUT NO EARLIER THAN January 24, 2013..
COMMUNICATION: If for any reason you cannot met the deadline or you need to drop out of this swap, please let your Swap Mama know as soon as you know. If you communicate any setbacks with us, we can make sure things work out favorably for your partner, no hard feelings.
