My thought was to make the Easy Lap Quilt from the book, but instead of describing your tastes/style/likes to your swap partner this is what I propose:
- You purchase our own fabric for the quilt. That way you definitely like the combination and can choose the fabrics that feel good against your skin (and you can spend as much or as little as you see fit).
- I'll organize the swap partners then send you your partner's mailing address. You'll mail your fabric to that person.
- She'll use the fabrics to create an Easy Lap Quilt then mail it back to you. The creating swapper can add embellishments or other creative elements such as applique, embroidery or free motion quilting. (Or not add anything, I'll leave it up to you.)
Hopefully that makes sense. Let me know what you think by casting a vote in the poll on the left sidebar. Of course, this doesn't commit you to swapping. I'm just trying to get a feel for what other's think of this idea. =]
