Thimble Blossoms Mini Quilt Swap

Kristi sugarndspice77 - Thimble Blossoms Mini Quilt Swap 2015-07-31

Swapping mini quilts seems like an appealing thought right now and, after having signed up for the (now closed) SewMyStash2015 Mini Quilt Swap, I decided to go ahead with another swap, due to its beautiful theme, the Thimble Blossoms patterns.

This Instagram swap is hosted by Kristi @sugarndspice77 and it is the second time already that the popular Thimble Blossoms patterns are used. The deadline for shipping internationally is February 2015, which leaves long enough a gap between the SewMyStash swap deadline in early October and this one.

The hashtag for this swap is #tbmqs2, but I’ll put up a button in the side column for quick access, should you want to look at what people create. I’ve already been assigned a team, #tbteamdarling, and my inspiration mosaic for the secret swap partner is this:

Clockwise from the upper left corner, the makers are: Camille Roskelley @thimbleblossoms, Jade @stitchmischief, Mary @classicquilter, and @mommy2lu.

Unfortunately, Instagram is very difficult to search through, and when scrolling down a page, at times it gets eternally stuck in the loading mode, so to link to a particular photo is ridiculously challenging. Suffice to say, I do my best to give proper credit where it is due.

If you’re interested in swapping smaller projects, there is something going on all the time with new swaps announced on a weekly basis it seems. Follow people and search for the most obvious hashtags, so you won’t miss out but can join in the fun!

    Do you know where I can get information about how this swap works? I have signed up for it but I have not done many quilt alongside and would like to begin gathering what I will need. Thank you.

      Hello, well since it’s an Instagram swap, and you have signed up, perhaps you received an email you can consult? Everyone should have received those by now, and also the hashtags for swap and team, and the swap mama are great resources. Good luck!
