I had so much fun participating in the last Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt Swap, that I decided to try it again! This time there were SO MANY PARTICIPANTS! Kristi of Schnitzel & Boo is one brave woman for setting these things up!
If you are unsure of what I’m talking about then let me explain. I signed up for this swap back in November i believe, possibly October. I filled out a form with all my information (name, address, email, social networking names, etc) and a list of what I like, dislike, allergies and more. Then Kristi goes through everyones applications and tries to match them with someone who has sort of similar taste. I then get sent a email with my secret partners name and all of her information from the form. The partner I receive is not the one who will be making a quilt for me, that way its all secret like. Then you have two-three months to stalk your partner and make them something you think they will love! It’s a lot of fun, in my opinion.
If you like the idea of this too, let me know. I can post a list of interesting swaps on the blog here every so often!
The quilt I made hasn’t been delivered yet. I had to wait until last minute to send it due to the flu, pneumonia (again) and icy roads. I’ll share photos after its been received though!
However I received my package from Jess P., of Sew Jess Handmade a few days ago (she was so on the ball) She was super awesome and sent me TWO mini quilts!! how sweet is that? TWO! She used my list of likes and dislikes to design these two pieces (hint: I really really dislike the color red!). Jess also made CT an adorable little zipper pouch, which she grabbed and ran off with. CT looks forward to these swap packages as much as I do these days.
As always I am blown away by the work that goes into the pieces I receive. Every quilt swap I do makes me want to do several more! It’s been great meeting new quilters, networking with other swap members, and it helps me step outside my comfort zone (which you will see when I post the mini I made!!)
Thank you again Jess!!!!Pin It
