Modify Tradition Swap Guidelines

Hi, folks!  You should have received your secret partner's information by now.  If not, please email me!  Here are the swap guidelines.

SIZE:  12x12" to 24x24" finished quilt.  Invisible hanging tabs welcome.

CONSTRUCTION:  You must use traditional blocks in some kind of modern format.  See our discussions on what's modern as well as inspiration and tutorials for a place to start.  Please note that you are not limited to blocks listed in our tutorials; any traditional blocks are welcome.

INSPIRATION:  Please post an inspiration mosaic to our flickr group so that your partner can see your tastes.  Go to fd's flick toys to make your mosaic! 

LABEL:  Please label the back of your quilt with your name, your partner's name, and the name of your quilt.  Feel free to include the names of any blocks that you have included.  Here are a few ways to label your quilts.

SECRET:  This is a blind swap, so your identity will remain a secret to your partner.  Please do not contact that person.  Don't forget to also browse your partner's blog or flickr stream and favorites so you can secretly get to know them. You may email me if you need additional information.

DEADLINE:  June 8th, 2010 for international swappers; June 15th, 2010 for domestic swappers.  Please email me once you have shipped your quilt.  Also, please notify us as soon as possible if you will be shipping late.

COURTESY:  Please keep us abreast of what is going on with your swap.  If you are going to be late or need to drop out, let us know so that we can make arrangements for your partner.  It's only fun to play if you get to send and receive.

Thanks to the swap mamas at the flickr Doll Quilt Swap for setting a great example!  I took my cues from them.
