Thanks to stampqljnr (Jan) for offering to take over the goup and keep it running. So nice to see it has a reprieve. I am sure that you will all support her as much as you have supported me in the past.

Keep your eyes open for news from Jan.

Group Description

Make a miniature quilt during the swap period. When your quilt is completed send a photograph of it to the swap Mama who will post it to the pool. When voting starts choose your favourites. Voting will be secret. Once the votes are in, then the swapping will begin. You will be advised who has 'won' your quilt, but you won't know which quilt you have 'won' until it arrives in your mail box. So don't let the secret out of the bag.
A photograph of your quilt must have been received by the swap mama before voting begins for you to be in the swap.
You must vote - a link to the voting sheet will be posted in the discussion thread
Send your quilt promptly as soon as you receive notification of who has 'won'' your quilt
Wait with baited breath for your new quilt to arrive, and don't forget to thank the sender, and post to the received thread in the group. Full rules and guidelines are posted in the discussion thread

The votes will be added up for each quilt.
The person who makes the quilt with the most vote, will get the quilt they voted as their favourite. The second highest quilt vote maker, will get their favourite ( unless it is already taken, in which case they will get their second favourite) and so on.

There will be no flaming, or arguing.
Please make sure your quilt is of the highest standard you are able to make, while understanding that everyone is at different levels in the craft, shoddy work, or poor quality fabrics are not acceptable.

This is a family group, please post nothing offensive that can not be viewed by children.

Group Rules

All members are required to agree to the following rules when they join the group.

1. First, no flaming. This is a friendly group and we want to keep it that way.
2. While a swap is underway, only the administrator will be able to post photographs to the pool. It is also asked that you do not post a photograph of your quilt to your own photostream until after voting has finished. This is to ensure the maker of each quilt is a secret.

3. All members participating in the swap must vote.

4. While it is understood that some members are very experienced and others perhaps new to quilting it is expected that all members submitting a quilt will have made it to the best of their ability. Shoddy workmanship or sub standard fabrics will not be acceptable.

5. The administrator will collate the votes and advise each member who has 'won' their quilt. This is to be kept secret until such time the quilt arrives in it's new home. It is expected that quilts will be posted out as soon as possible after the details have been sent out.

6. When a quilt is received it is expected that a personal flickrmail be sent to the maker thanking them, and that a message be posted in the group.

7. Arguments or discussion regarding which quilt is sent to any member will not be entered into. The quilts will be allocated by a mathematical spreadsheet.
