Sign ups open for our Summer Swap

------------SIGN UPS ARE NOW CLOSED - Thanks to all who signed up to swap!--------------

Sign ups are now open for our Summer Swap.  Aideen and Cindy have chosen a fun, stress free project this summer - the one hour basket!   The idea is to make a small basket for your partner, big enough to store a few fat quarters  or a hand sewing project.  The pattern is by @Kelbysews and is free to download from Craftsy here!

Extras are great fun and always welcome but shouldn't break the bank.  An extra like a nice piece of fabric, a fat quarter, a favourite sewing notion to the value of €5, a fat quarter worth of scraps or a small handmade item 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!

The sign up form is here and as always our swaps are open to all sewing levels and is beginner friendly so don't hesitate to join up!

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 images from Pinterest.

Sign ups will be open until next Saturday, 25th June, and partners will be assigned by Monday 27th June latest. You'll then have all summer to make your item for your swap partner, and posting dates will be Monday 5th through to Wednesday 7th September.

You can customise your basket with some patchwork or play with fabric choices for a fun project for your partner!  The most important thing is to have fun!

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 Instagram using the hashtags #mqisummerswap.  The sign up form is here.  I hope you will join us in making for each other this summer and thanks to Aideen and Cindy for looking after us as Swap Mamas!
