thanks for the great support ladies.. I can't sleep right now so checking in a few minutes.. shift change you know..

Well I have seen that the list is not getting any longer.. there is only one postage stamp that you will need and the scraps from your stash to make a mini one of your members that receives it will cherish forever.. I know I will for sure... It will only take a couple of hours of your time to piece it and a good Saturday night movie to quilt it.. and a Sunday coffee coffeecup (while you are waiting for your dial up) to put the binding

Once we start posting the mini's that we receive you will kick yourself in the butt for not joining in so I am only giving you fair warning.. we have until the end of August to get them to your "secret mini pal"

Let me know what is holding you up do you feel intimitated?, do you think that it is to small a quilt to make? oh please don't tell me you have no scraps!! I will send you some... lol!
I will be away for the next 24 hours I hope to see more enthusiast.. if you need to pm me with questions please feel free I will get back to you on Tuesday evening..

I think that is called a little pushing..... :bday9: Imagine looking like this little guy when you open your mini gift...

Mamu I don't know how it happened but you got a free ticket to get on the bus and so they put your name on the roster...there is even a window seat so that you can enjoy the view.. even though I don't think I can make it any better than where you already had been...

lmao lmao lmao

Breezepines I am sorry I am laughing but one for each that are going to sign up would be alot of work.. now at the end of June (that is the sign in deadline) everyone will send me their address and I will put everyones name in a basket and I will select who you will be sending the mini to.. I will send you their address.
Mini's are to be bigger than 10" square and NO bigger than 25in square.. make your mini on how you would interpret. You will have until the end of Aug to have it in the recipients hands.. you are allowed to post pic of your progress cause no one will know who you are sending too..doesn't that sound like fun?? the posting of pics will give others confidence and idea's and great initiative.
I think with this group it will be great I have done block swaps and row robins with many of the members here and I have always found quality and thoughtful workmanship.. better than I would at my own guild.. how often have you done a quilt for a guild auction and the blocks all have to be fugded to fit.. I am on my 3rd quilt from the swaps from most of these ladies and i have had no problem putting the blocks together.. In fact I have a block from you.. LOL

Members you will not be disappointed.. we have a wonderful thoughtful humorous, sensitive, bunch a quilters that I know will give their best... I KNOW

Not sure if interested in this swap but need more details. What size of a mini? Have never made a mini before. Do we send it to one person and they send them on or are names picked and send one mini to someone. New to this type of swap. Do the minis have a certain theme or anything goes. Just need details then will decide. When visited youngest son last week DIL and I visited a material shop. They had what they called blankies hanging up. Really cute and only 4 large squares in flannelette and the edges were showing so had a raggedy look. Babies would love to touch the raggedy seams. Is this a mini quilt? jessie s

Sheesh!!!!!!!!! I am dumb. Just read more topics and found one that set the guidelines out. All my questions answered. Sorry Deb, you were very explicit in your guidelines, I just didn't read far enough. So sign me up. I understand I make a quilt no larger than 25 inches, any pattern or colour I want. And Deb will let me know at end of June who I send it to. No problem in sending to USA or Australia or Europe. So sign me up. jessie s

redworker.. so glad you are on our side.. what a great simple explanation.. you are right if you wanted to try a techique and you don't want to make a big quilt.. make a mini of it and see if you like the technique first..

OK ladies. Sign me up too! I have NO problem sending to anywhere.

I hope I don't regret this! Not less than 10" and no bigger than 25". I think I can do that. Now to just pick out a pattern to do!
