Down Under Doll Quilt Swap: Round 2

by Kate on March 9, 2011

These are some of my favourite and most inspiring quilts on flickr, all very different but special in their own way. I sometimes look at the quilts that pop up on flickr and think I would never try and make one similar on a large scale. ‘To hard’ or ‘to time consuming’ but doll quilts are different, they are the perfect size to try something you may not normally attempt.

Down Under Doll Quilt Swap - Round 2
1. Detail 4, 2. Boro Blues – Stitched Patched and Quilted Wall Hanging, 3. Vera, 4. SWAPBOT – MUSEUM POSTCARD – GEE’S BEND QUILTS, 5. summer blocks, 6. Ingrid Press quilt, 7. Beaded Curtain Quilt – Kaffe Fassett design, 8. patchwork squares quilt, 9. the whole thing

Sign ups for round 2 of the ‘Down Under Doll Quilt Swap’ are now open.

  • Sign-ups will remain open until Sunday 13th March. Sign ups are now closed
  • The swap is a blind swap. Partners will be allocated by Wednesday 16th March.
  • Quilts must be posted to your partner by 27th May.
  • To participate in the swap you must have an active blog and/or a flickr account.
  • Doll quilts range from 12×12 to 24×24‚Ķany size or shape in between.
  • You must reside in Australia or New Zealand to participate

To sign up, please email me and join the down under doll quilt swap flickr group (yes, you need to do both). In your email include your full name, postal address, blog and/or flickr details as well as any likes and dislikes. I will do my best to match you with a suitable partner. Sign ups are now closed.

From all accounts the first round of the swap was enjoyed by all involved and I think that comes down to a: everyone receiving a quilt and b: when the quilts were made, the makers kept their partners tastes in mind. These things are important to keep in mind when thinking of signing up for a swap.

Just before I go, please keep in mind what other commitments you have before signing up. It really isn’t fun when people miss out on receiving something.

Oh crikey … I’d love to since I LOVED it so much last time. So tempted but I’m guessing the fact that bub is due the following week may place me in doubt. Will ponder further ;)

I’m not a quilter so I’m not putting my hand up, but I am a quilt admirer and loved the quilts from this swap last time and am hugely looking forward to seeing what beauties pop up this time around.
