When you sign up you are agreeing to send a mini quilt made by you to the person you are assigned. I know life happens so if something comes up in the swap and you can’t fulfill your obligations I just ask you communicate it to be as quickly as possible so I can find a replacement.
The mini quilt you make should be sized within the range of 12″-24″. It does not have to be square. Any shape or size within that range will do. 12″ x 18″, 16″ x 24″ 19″ square, etc…..
What are you going to make? Design something yourself, use an existing mini quilt pattern, or make a single block from a regular quilt pattern. Sewing methods can vary as well, traditionally pieced, foundation paper pieced, epp, applique. All of the above.
Filling out all the sections on the form like, favorite colors, style, fabric, treat, quilt block. Will give your swap partner all the info needed to make something you love. Ultimately if it gets to stressful or you are sure just make something you love.
I will provide guidelines for extras. This will help people that haven’t swapped before, as well as give everyone a similar package to open.
Sign ups end July 5th and partners will be emailed to you on July 7th. There will be 4 required check in via an instagram post during the swap timeline so we can share what we are working on, recipient will not know who is sewing for them, and have accountability so no one is left without an amazing mini at the end.
Finally you must fill out the form in it’s entirety to participate and you must have a public Instagram to participate.
