Houston MQG Mini Swap Sign Ups

Here are the details for our swap with Houston MQG!
This will be a blind swap. You will be randomly paired up with someone from the other guild. Someone from the other guild will stitch for you. These will not be the same people. Please remember to do your best but everyone is at a different skill level. We will match based on skill level. You will make a mini quilt. It should measure between 15x15" and 24x24". It does not have to be square. Please take your partners likes/dislikes into account. But remember, it's not a custom order, YOU are the maker!
Your mini is due by your guild's September meeting. If you have questions, please ask Amanda or Lee (Triad) OR Debbie or Amy (Houston).
We'd love for you to share on social media! Use the #HMQGTRIADMQGSWAP hashtag when you post:)


Sign up here!
