BENCH  PILLOW TOP SWAP 

"FALL...Time to Cool off!"



Hostess is QUILTBABY

It's finally FALL!  We are ready for a break from all the heat! It's time to sew a trendy bench pillow top!  

The Requirements:  Open to all QATW members who have signed the swap agreement and who are in good standing, i.e. not in the dreaded Briar Patch.  Swappers should be confident beginners and above.  New members are encouraged to join us!

Weekly check-ins are required by posting in this thread.

The Swap:  Each swapper will make one bench pillow TOP.  The theme of the pillow will be “FALL”.  Pillow cover TOP must be  16.5” x 38.5."  To save on shipping and to allow for flexable use  Each swapper will be responsible to take the top they receive and turn it into a bench pillow case OR use it for a table runner or a wall hanging.  YOU decide how to use this piece of art.  

This TOP can be pieced, machine or hand embroidered, machine or hand appliqued, and can be made of cotton, flannel, or wool with the addition of silk, corduroy, home decor, or more.  Fusibles and stabilizers can/should be used as needed. "Bling" can be added as desired.  This swap will be fairly open in regard to techniques and materials so that you can have FUN and use your imagination!

 

The Fabric:  All fabrics must be Quilt-Shop-Quality (QSQ); no fabrics from big box stores like Walmart, Joann’s, etc.  You may use cotton, flannel, or wool with the addition of silk, corduroy, home decor, or more.  Fabrics and trims must be prewashed until the water runs clear if they are launderable.   

To join: Post intent below and send a personal message (PM) to the hostess, QUILTBABY, which includes the following:   

  • Given and Screen Names
  • Mailing and Email addresses
  • Telephone number
  • Do you want your top to be made based on your LIKES or just to have a FALL theme ( as you might be gifting it )
Please indicate if you have a wool allergy.  We need a minimum of 6 swappers for this to become a swap.

Once your PM is received, the hostess will reply with further instructions and contact information.  You will receive the name to whom you are mailing your pillow cover after the sign-ups close.

Deadlines:  

Sign-up by Saturday, Aug 24 (names shared on Sunday, Aug 25)

Mail by Monday Sept 30 . (one week earlier for international)

~ Fall is a wonderful time of the year... ~

Ok you Fall loving swappers, We need more peeps to join us. Im looking forward to starting this beauty. so far the choices are no one cares the theme just so its Fall. So as soon as we get our 6th person you can start your creations.        Just think, no quilting no binding no finishing you beautiful piece. Just create a top you would love to receive.   It can not get any easier or better than this!!!  Then you get the option to do what you want with the beauty you receive back.  Will you create a table runner, a wall hanging or scarf above a firplace. or maybe turn it into a pillow sleeve? Or use as all 3, why not its yours!!!  Shoot you could even add borders to expand the size if you wanted.   SEE..... Choices and Fun!!!  Come join us.   So many creative people in this group.  Would be thankful to have you all join.

I really need a fall table runner so this will be perfect, then I'll add some placemats and it will be a new table.  Can't wait.
