PostSubject: XMAS Present Swap!   Mon Oct 24, 2016 12:43 am

Wanna swap xmas presents with your friends here? Just think, arriving in your mail box, a beautifully wrapped gift, bow curling and a gift tag with your name on it!!
gift gift gift gift2 gift2 gift2 gift2

What could be more fun? Did you know there are only 63 more sleeps to xmas?   (yeah, I know you're all so glad I told you that one, it was my pleasure to share the good news with ya'll !!) tree2 tree3 sleigh

So, you want me to shut up and just get to the point huh? Well ok then!  For this swap you will only have to make one quilt Shocked  I mean, one mini quilt, actually just one simple 12 1/2" block that takes about half an hour from cutting to final pressing.  Once you have your block made you will sandwich and quilt it, add some binding and a hanging sleeve and its ready to post  mailbox Its that easy. TxMary has been hoping to swap presents with her friends, its a great swap idea (I will post another swap for those wanting to swap blocks as well if people want to do extra, they are so easy to make, you could strip piece the central part then cut to size and just add the top and bottom strips)

This is the block, I whipped up a sample to show you, its just some pieced strips then a fused and appliqued bow.




I made the gift tag by fusing two fabrics together then stitched around the outside, cut a little hole and threaded ribbon through



wrote To:  & From: on the back



Tucked the ends beneath the knot of the bow and fused it in place, then just did my applique stitching, the gift tag didnt get in the way at all



I then hot glued a snowflake button to the front Very Happy  You can decorate your gift, I imagine you could glue those crystal things on,  add buttons of even perhaps attach a real gift tag, there are all those cute keepsake ones out there now. So who wants to join the fun?  

Gifts will be due to arrive at their recipient by Dec 15th, for most people thats what, 6 weeks to create and allows a week for mailing (those swapping international need to allow 2 weeks for mail)

This project is so easy, join the fun and give a gift to a friend gift gift gift

Well this will be fun. Hope more will join. It's been a long time since we had a major turn out for a swap. I think the Summer quilt swap was our last really big one with like 17 participants. That was really fun. So come on ladies, this is a really easy swap. Really hope y'all will join in.

Wait, I take that back, I think Sewn had a pretty good turn out for her mug rug swap. This is no harder than a mug rug. Only about 30 minutes to make and then recieve a nice keepsake decoration.
