Anyway, details of this swap:
"This swap is to make a mini quilt for your partner! We are only going to swap the mini quilt itself, no extras required, so we can focus on making the quilt. If partners agree you may send a couple of tiny extras, but they are not required and you must check with your partner to see if it is ok.
"The size of the quilt should be between 1 and 2 feet square (12 to 24 inches), with any size, shape, and dimensions that fits within those parameters. So 12 x 18 inches is ok, and so is a 15 inch circle, but any one side shouldn’t be smaller than 12 inches or longer than 24 inches. Use whatever methods you want to make a lovely art quilt for your partner! Piecing, embroidery, hand dying fabric, adding beads or charms, etc."
This was part of the questionnaire I received from my partner, StickerChic87, so I knew what to incorporate into the quilt for her:
--What are your favorite colors: Grey, purple, green, red, black
--What are some of the colors in the room of the house you might display this in: Our rooms dont really have themes or color schemes, so Im not too concerned with this. Everything we have is mismatched!
--What colors do you dislike: Pinks, oranges, and yellows. Small amounts are fine though.
--What patterns/shapes/objects do you like: Plaid. Circles.
--What patterns/shapes/objects do you dislike: I cant really think of anything.
--Any specific fabric or quilt patterns you really like? As far as fabric, I really like batiks, and fabrics with fun, colorful prints.
--Any specific fabric or quilt patterns you really dislike? Licensed stuff like Disney, John Deere, Hello Kitty, etc. Not big into country type stuff either.
Please list at least 5 themes/ideas to help your partner know the kinds of things you might like (they can be more specific, ie dolphins, or less specific, ie the ocean) More than 5 is allowed, but 5 is the minimum:
1. The Beatles
2. My state-Michigan!
4. Retro campers
5. Jane Austen (Northanger Abbey and Emma are my favs)
6. Robin Hood (prefer classic over Disney)
7. Bob Dylan
8. Books in general
9. A surprise inspired by my Pinterest, profile, etc!
StickerChic87, if you happen to read this before you get your quilt, stop reading right now!!! There are spoiler alerts ahead! :)
Looks around the internet. Is she gone? She is? Okay, here's what I made. As you can see, I went with the vintage camper motif. :) There is batting inside and I even pressed the plaid edging out when I was done. :) I'll iron for other people, but I won't iron for myself.
|Since this is meant to be a wall hanging, I made very simple loops from matching fabric and a little bit of quilting. The camper buttons came from one more Etsy seller.|
|These are just pinned through the loops and through the plaid edging. That way, if StickerChic wants to hang it differently, she can take off the loops and still use them and the buttons, if she wants.|
