Welcome! This is gonna be alot of fun & a huge bonus is....no pressure if you don't get a quilt done. If embroidery, applique or paper pieceing is your thing...showcase your talents on your quilt and well just make something you love. It's that easy! more details @ the bottom of the page.... ROUND # 2 DEADLINE IS now FEBRUARY 7, 2011!

Group Description

How the swap will work:

•No pre-assigned partners. Instead of being assigned a partner in advance, you may make any style, theme or color of quilt that you like. You may also, if you wish, use a quilt which you have made. All quilts should be roughly between 16"x16" and 24"x24".

•DEADLINE TO FINISH YOUR QUILT- JANUARY 31, 2011

•Because of the way the swapping will work, I can take as many people as want to make quilts. Also, due to the way the swapping will work, you can join right up until the last minute, though on the whole, I hope most people will at least make an expression of interest early in the swap.

•No guilt/no droupout problems. I will maintain a list of those who are INTERESTED in playing along, BUT YOU WILL NOT BE OFFICIALLY SIGNED UP FOR THE SWAP UNTIL I HAVE PHOTOS OF YOUR QUILT emailed to me. This means that if you are unable for whatever reason to finish your quilt before the deadline, no one will be left without a quilt, it simply means you won't get the chance to choose a quilt and participate yourself.

• As quilt photos arrive, I will post them in batches in flickr with the descriptions, though not the names of the makers. I am not trying to keep this a complete secret, though, so if you wish to talk about (and show photos of) your quilt on your own blog, that's fine just not on flickr...trust me it makes it more fun. :)

•Choose which quilts you like best! After the deadline, when I have received photos of all the finished quilts and posted them in the flickr group, you will have the chance to vote on your favorite 10 quilts.

•I will collate the lists and work out who gets what quilt.Though obviously, not everyone will get their first pick. Some priority will be give to the makers of the most popular quilts (so if your quilt is the number one choice for half the swappers, you will probably get your own first pick), but on the whole, I will simply move things around until they are as balanced as possible. You will then mail your quilt to whoever is chosen to receive it.
