State Historical Society of Iowa: Mary Barton Collection
State Historical Society of Iowa Mary Barton Collection- Quilt Index
Fabric: 1775-1910 is a wide span of time but that is what we are looking for. Look HERE if you are unsure what reproduction fabric is.
We are not using 1920's-Current
Not primitive style, like Jan Patek, or cutesy like some of Primitive Gatherings or Joined at the Hip. (which I love, just not for this swap)
We want the quilt to look like it time traveled from days past.
24" x 24" or smaller. (It doesn't have to be square), Civil War reproductions, a label, with a deadline of mailing by May 1st.
If you cannot (for whatever reason) send international please let me know.
If you are interested please send me your full name, mailing address and if you do NOT want an international partner. email@example.comEven if you were in a past swap, please send me the pertinent info.
I'll take signups through Sunday, March 20, 2017- Midnight PST
I will send you your swap partner soon.
If I do not know you, if you have never commented on my blog or we've never emailed than I may not allow you to join. Don't take it personal.
It isn't a race (although there is a deadline) there is no reason to rush and do a crappy job. This type of workmanship is not acceptable. It doesn't have to be perfect. So many of my points do not match, but I do know how to attach a binding and basic quilt construction. Have fun and enjoy the process!
Need some inspiration?
