TTMT Friendship Swap

***For TTMT Video Makers Only***

friendship swap 2020

Hello fellow TTMT Video Makers!

After several suggestions and conversations with you wonderful people, I am pleased to share an invitation to join your fellow Talk To Me Tuesday Video Makers in a Friendship Swap!

To make this as easy and stress-free as possible for everyone, this swap will work a little differently than the ones we’ve had in the past.

Each swap participant will make:

  • 1 wall quilt, 15″ – 18″ finished
  • The quilt should be friendship themed!
  • It can be pieced, paper pieced, appliqued, or embroidered, but it does need to be a quilt.
  • Please include an option for hanging: sleeve on the back, corner tabs, etc.
  • Please sign and/or label your work.
  • You may include one other small item (postcard, bookmark, etc.) but it should be small. Please don’t go crazy, we want to keep the swaps as even and fair as possible.
  • Please do your best work. We’ve all had a stressful year and this is intended to bring both maker and recipient a bit of friendship cheer!

We won’t have sign-ups today. Instead, you will sign up when you have COMPLETED your quilt. I hope this will encourage as many people as possible to jump in and play while keeping this as stress-free as possible.

In order to participate, your swap should be completed and the sign-up form submitted by FRIDAY, AUGUST 7, 2020. Sign-ups will be open July 28 – August 7, 2020.

Once everyone who has completed a wall quilt has signed up, each person will receive a random person to send to. We’re all TTMTers and we’re all friends. Just think “Friendship!” Feel free to show your progress in your weekly videos. I think it’ll be fun to share since we have no idea who we’ll be sending to. How much, if anything, you share is up to you!

Send-to addresses will be sent no later than Tuesday, August 11, 2020. Please mail by Tuesday, August 18, 2020.

And don’t worry, I’ll be sharing a reminder every week. 😊

Please do let me know if you have any questions!

Ready, set, GO!

I could have edited this more, but am running short on time. Doing this on my lunch break! I’m working on last year’s swap quilt while also finishing up quilting my first quilt on the frame so far this year!

TTMT 2019 Swap/Challenge

Thank you for your feedback! This post has been edited with final swap details!

Hello, friends!

For the 2019 Swap, I want to try something completely different.

Let’s swap 2 1/2″ strips and make TTMT Jelly Rolls!

The number of 2 1/2″ strips sent to each person will depend on how many people sign up. The goal is for each person to send and receive 40 unique strips. This will be a stash buster using fabric that reflects who you are or something you like. With that in mind, I am asking that swappers not use pre-cut jelly rolls. Also, I kind of detest the pinked edges those have! 😉

Swappers will send their strips to me and I will make and ship jelly rolls. Your strips are due by the week of February 28, 2019. Jelly rolls (or possibly jelly sandwiches!) will ship no later than March.

Detailed instructions will be sent to each swapper at the beginning of January. Please don’t send ANYTHING until then. We need to know how many swappers we have first. 

  • If you are in the U.S. – please send return postage for a flat rate envelope. This can be a postage paid address label, a stamp, cash, check, or PayPal. I’m flexible. 😉 I prefer padded Flat Rate envelopes for shipping fabric, but this is your choice. I can also ship in a regular flat rate envelope.
  • If you are not in the U.S. – please send your strips and I’ll figure out the shipping on this end.
  • If shipping costs are prohibitive for you, please email me and we’ll work something out. ♥

Once all strips/jelly rolls are received by our TTMT Swappers, I challenge you to make a project with your 2 1/2″ strips by the end of 2019!  The Challenge is optional, but I think it would make for some very fun future videos! 😀

The 2019 TTMT Jelly Roll Swap & Challenge is open to anyone who has made a TTMT video and posted to the WordPress site in the last six months. TTMTers who have previously posted videos but have been absent for a while have until the end of December 2018 to share a video in order to participate in the swap. Just to reiterate, this swap/challenge is ONLY for TTMT video contributors.

Sign-ups are Closed! 🙂

The deadline to sign up is December 31, 2018.

Questions, etc, always welcome.

TTMT #280 – jewells68 – September 13, 2018 – Dead Again

I cut a ton out of this but it’s still got some ummmmmms. Sorry about that and any jumpy cuts. Commission quilt is about to get under way. I also talk about the TTMT Swap blocks and stuff I bought at Hip Stitch. And damn, you can really see how grey my hair is getting, what the heck is up with that???

Also I think I may have used this title before but oh well, I’m too tired to check, lol.

TTMT #73 Swaps, Memory Quilts and Packages

Hi everyone,

I finally managed to get a video done. Only took 10 tries.

In saying that, I am sorry that the video is 20 minutes long. After so many tries, I just gave up trying to make it shorter. Promise that future ones will be shorter.

Hope everyone is having a happy sewing and crafty week.
