Heather Ross Mini Quilt Swap

I am incredibly excited to be hosting my first mini quilt swap.  While I have participated in many and been a swap mama in a few, I have never taken the reigns.  Heather Ross is my favorite fabric designer, and like many of you, I love her colorful and whimsical artwork.

Her new fabric line Tiger Lily for Windham Fabrics will arrive in stores in August 2015, so I thought it would be fun to celebrate with a summer swap.

For those of you interested in participating, here are some important dates to keep in mind:

Swap Sign-ups: Monday, June 1 at 9:00 am EST

Swap Sign-ups close: Monday, June 8 (or when swap is full)
Partner information will be sent via email by: Monday, June 15
International Ship Date: Thursday, October 1
Domestic Ship Date: Thursday, October 8
**Please do not ship early!**

Please read these rules carefully before sign-ups open on Monday, June 1.

  1. This swap is exclusive to INSTAGRAM users who have a PUBLIC IG account ONLY.  Please understand…when creating a mini, your partner needs to have access to your feed to get an idea of your style and interests.  If your account is private, you won’t be able to participate.
  2. Because this is a HEATHER ROSS mini swap, you are required to use her fabrics in the mini you create for your partner.  I realize it’s hard to cut into her fabulous fabrics, but it’s a requirement to participate.  
  3. While patiently awaiting your partner information, make a MOSAIC and post to your IG feed ASAP…this gives your partner a better of idea of your style, color combinations you prefer, and a better chance of making something you’ll love.
  4. Post PROGRESS pictures frequently on your IG feed to show that you’re actively and enthusiastically participating during the creative process.  Use the hashtags #hrminiswap "heatherrossmini as well as your team name hashtag (TBD).
  5. Be sure to respond to your swap mama at the MANDATORY check-ins.  We will have several of these over the next 3-1/2 months.
  6. Create a mini quilt with dimensions no less than 12” in any dimension.  
  7. This is a secret swap, so stalking is good, but SHHHHH! Keep your identity a surprise until the end.
  8. SHIP ON TIME!  You have 3-1/2 months to plan and create something special for your partner, so don’t wait until the last minute to get started.  Deadlines are stated in the beginning for a reason.
  9. You will be REQUIRED to send your swap mama a copy of your TRACKING NUMBER once you ship if you’re in the US.  If you’re international, then a copy of the customs form will suffice. 
To sign up for this swap, find and follow crookedwhimsy on Instagram!
