Quilting Swap, anyone?

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in doing a Christmas Themed swap? It would be a bit like playing Secret Santa.

- Each participant would be assigned a person, and they would then make a mini-quilt for their person. The mini quilt would probably be a wall-hanging or table runner (or we could make mug rugs if the majority wanted).

- You would customise the mini-quilt to your partner's taste (partners will have to give clues as to what they would like, and preferably make a mosaic in Flickr to show some similar items that they like).

- The quilt will be using your own material and supplies.

- As you are making the quilt, you will be required to put up a few 'sneak peaks' in Flickr. (Your partner won't know that they will be receiving a quilt from you, so they will be able to admire the various 'sneak peaks' and speculate about which they may receive).

- It would have to be posted on or before a specified shipping date (probably around 7th December... so you will only have about 5 or 6 weeks to make your item). The shipping date will be strict ... as everyone will want to receive their 'present' and have enough time to enjoy it before Christmas.

Any questions?

If you are interested, please leave a comment. Also state which type of quilt you'd like the swap to involve ... ie mini quilt for wall hanging, or table runner, or mug rug. Only stick your hand up if you have enough time to produce and ship something. I know lots of us still have blocks to complete for VBQ so it may not be feasible to run the swap right now! If enough people are interested I'll organise something!
PS a Mug Ruby is like an oversized coaster. Large enough to have a mug and a biscuit sitting on it.
