Sign ups for Summer Swap Open!

Happy bank holiday weekend! Sign ups are now open for our Summer Swap - a tote bag!  I hope you will join us in making a fun summer project.  The idea is to make a tote bag for your partner, big enough for a craft magazine and a hand sewing project and to include a little surprise inside.

A small handmade item or a favourite sewing notion would be ideal.  Chocolate is always welcome but if you are going to send sugary goodies please put them in a plastic bag so as not to melt all over your beautiful creation!

To participate please make a mosaic of items you like to give your partner an idea of what to make! Our previous post How our swaps work has step by step instructions to make a mosaic using Flickr or images from Pinterest. 

1. Tote back, 2. encomenda, 3. Handmade foam tote bag., 4. a Tote Bag, 5. bag-3, 6. Library Bag, 7. Urban Grocery Tote, 8. Anna Maria Horner Tote Bag, 9. Julinha's bag, 10. LEANNE'S BAG, 11. Denyse Schmidt tote, 12. Solids Only Tote Challenge, 13. tote bag, 14. large tote bag, 15. 241 Tote - present for a friend..., 16. Natasha's First Birthday Tote Dec12

Our swap is open to all sewing levels and as always is a beginner friendly swap. Sign ups will be open until next Saturday, 6th June, and partners will be assigned by Friday 12th June latest. You'll then have all summer to make your item for your swap partner, and posting dates will be 1st-3rd September. For inspiration have a look at Pintrest where there are links to all sorts of free tutorials.

This swap is open to members of Modern Quilters Ireland residing in and outside of Ireland. If you are not currently a member, and want to join up (membership is free) please find the information and link to the registration form here or email us at

Please post your mosaic to our Flickr Group  or Instagram #mqisummerswap #modernquiltersireland.
The sign up form is here.  I hope you will join us in making for each other this summer!
