Mini-quilt Swap Participants

I have kept this swap smaller to make it more manageable so I am sorry to those of you who were too late to sign up.

Here are the participants

she quilts
fran (currently without a blog but we are working on her!)
sew to bed
susie sews
quilt dude

(I have included the people who emailed me early to express an interest in this swap which is why there will be some names here that aren't on the comments on yesterday's post)

Those of you who have signed up should have received an email from me with the html code for the swap-badge and the questionnaire. If by any chance you have not received it could you let me know straight away. I need all the completed questionnaires back by Wednesday afternoon (unless I have yours from an earlier swap) so that I can allocate partners and publish the list on Wednesday evening.

This swap should be great fun - but I just need to clarify something that has been making a few of you anxious - the binding! When I said that the quilt needed to be properly bound what I meant was that it should not have raw edges. This can be done by binding or backing the quilt and turning it through like a cushion cover - or any other method you like as long as it is "finished" and ready to hang up.

I hope this sets your minds at rest!

I'm really pleased you all wanted to play and I'll leave you with a photo I borrowed from Lina of the lovely quilt she gave away for her 100th post.

I missed this one, but I don't think I could match anything that you've shown here. They are all stunning. I'll play next time, if it's easy enough!!

I gave you an award on my blog


Patti said...

What a great idea and good organising there.

Hope everyone has fun

Am I really the only one without a blog????? Oh, dear, no pressure then???? Fran x

Lina said...

Bless you - what a great list you've got there!

Leanne said...

What a kind, fast working gal you are Mrs Locket. I will now have to put my thinking cap on.

katelnorth said...

well shoot, I missed that one, but funny enough, I have been organising (and have just posted) my own little quilt swap, so I guess it's a case of GMTA!

Marie said...

Well, my thinking cap is on. But it's not working. I think it might need to go in for a service. Better get it sorted out sharpish!

I can't wait to get going though really.


Kitty said...

A couple of people have asked me how come I was out and now I'm in ... basically the goodness that is Lucy, Lesley and Trashy have been utter sweeties, and I felt I could, after all, have a go.

I'd like to thank all three of them very very much.

Hugs and kisses all round.


Katy said...

phew. I was having a binding panic!!!
Best get my practise head on.

And I think I'll pester Fran into getting a blog too....that woman, she says she's afraid of techy things, excuses excuses ;)

Annie said...

Looking forward to it Lucy. Now to add that badge..

trashalou said...

pshaw Fran! Blogger isn't a techie thing! Blogger is like writing in a notebook but on your computer!

Thimbleanna said...

Wow -- look at that fabulous list of stars! You are all going to have a wonderful time!

Lorraine said...

Ooooops! too slow - maybe next time! looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.....
