Our First Challenge

Our First Challenge:
Make Me A Mini!
A ModGal Mystery Quilt Swap

Want to play? It will be loads of fun… Mini is due April  19th, 2012

How do I join? Sign up for the Swap between Dec 1st and Jan 18th

This is what you need to do:

Place a beautiful Fat Quarter of fabric you absolutely love, in a brown paper bag.
Include a card with the following information:

Your name
A list of at least 5 things you love

Bring this bag to our January 18th meeting
*This is a secret swap, so no name on the outside of the bag!!!*

Follow these guidelines to create a Mini for your partner:

1.     Finished size: from 12”x12” to 16”x16” or any size in between
2.     Fabrics to use: you will use the Fat Quarter your partner placed in the brown bag and add as many fabrics as you wish to complete her Mini
3.     Embellishment: buttons, rickrack, beads, thick threads, etc.
4.     Techniques: patchwork, paper pieced, appliqué, etc.
5.     The finished Mini needs to be quilted and finished with binding
6.     Label your piece: attach to back of quilt; include your name, date, your swap partner’s name, etc.
7.     A card: tell about the process you used to create your piece

…and remember, this is a secret swap!
