From October 2016 to February 2017, we're holding our first-ever international MQG swap, and all active MQG members are invited to sign-up! Spots are limited according to the number of volunteer helpers we have, but we're accommodating as many people as possible! For this first one, we're making mini quilts — no larger than 24" x 24".
This swap is a member-to-member secret swap, so participants will know who they're making for, but not who's making for them. The timeline will be from October 2016 to February 2017, and the delivery date will coincide with QuiltCon. If you're going to QuiltCon and your partner is too, we'll have a special meetup so you can swap in person. Not going? Not a problem! Mail your item to your partner, get yours in the mail and join the virtual meetup on Instagram.
