8. While I'd love to say wall hanging, I'm not allowed to put them up as I don't have a dedicated sewing room :( Maddy has a couple already, and Austy has a couple of teddy quilts too but I steel them occasionally to use as photographic backgrounds/props. Would be happy for another for either child, or something I could place on the coffee table (our lounge will be getting a coffee table soon and is white and neutral tones, or something with a bit of chocolate brown or beige and a bright turquoise or lime would go nicely in the family room.)

Deadline to sign up: Monday 5th of September.
Quilt post deadline: 12th of November.
5 days for me to get the partner swaps organised and 8 weeks of sewing?? Enough time??

This has been such a successful swap in the past....please don't spoil it....if you don't think you can meet the deadline don't join in.

Please stalk your swappee and look at their blog...it will give a feel of the types of fabric/quilts that they like!

It is getting harder to swap you with someone of the same skill level and someone you haven't had before...feel free to PM or email me a preference for a swapper expecially if they are not the same skill level as you. No promises but I will do my best to make the swap as even and as fair as I can!

Anything I've missed??

So who is first??
