MQG Swap

The first MQG swap was so fun we are doing it again!

From October 2017 to February 2018, we're holding our second 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! Once again, we're making mini quilts — no larger than 24" x 24" — with the suggestion (not requirement) that they be themed for your swap partner’s sewing space.

This swap is a one-to-one partner swap, so once matched, participants will know who they're making for and who's making for them. Based on last year’s feedback, members were looking for a greater sense of community, and we think an open swap can help foster a new friendship. #makeaminimakeafriend

The timeline will be from October 2017 to February 2018, 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.
