Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
I know there are a few of you out there that are aquiring quite a stash of charms. How about a summer table runner or topper to use up a few of those extra fabric tidbits!! Sign up by July 7th.
This will be a good chance to use some of those charms from the charm swaps.Think summer days and colorful gardens to get your creativity flowing. You can choose to do a table runner or topper.
For runners 38" to 48" long by 12" to 15" wide, for toppers 24" to 36" square
For this swap lets keep the top lively and colorful, use charms or some of your own stash fabrics. Paper pieced,applique' pieced, quilt as you go or scrappy.
Backing can be one fabric or more of your charms if you want to make it reversible. (You could do Summery on one side and Fallish on the other )
This will be a partner swap, partners will be assigned after sign-up ends.
Sign-up through July 7th,swap ends and runner/topper received by your partner by August 18th.

Sounds awesome! Count me in. I will however send you a new address because by the time this swap is over, I will be moved into my own house!! This way I can have a table topper (I have a smaller round dining room table) for my new house :)
Count me in Mary. Great idea for all these charms we've been swapping!
Debra, wow I like excited participants!! you are picked and the first on the list.
Elizabeth, your in. What a great little house warming giftthis will be, a fun new topper for your table.
Cindy, welcome to the group, you can fling those great little charms you have collected out of the stack and onto a table.
I used some of the toppers and runers I have as a guide for the sizes, an 18" would not be bad.
I had not thought to put it in the guidelines, but those participating could mention what type of table they have so your partner has an idea as to which syle to make. I have already noted that Elizabeth has a round table, so if the rest of you let me know what type you have I will make a note of it on the sign up list.
This one sounds like a winner! I have 2 tables - one is 36" round that can be oblong or oblooooong depending on the number of leaves. The basic size of the other table is 40 X 70, and it expands to 40 X 110 at maximum. Amazing set that I bought from a dear friend when she moved. She brought it from Norway when she was first married.
No preferences on size, color or type - runner or topper is ok.
Melanie, i have you added to the list. Welcome to the group!!
Count me in. Sounds like a great swap.No preference on size, topper or runner or color. My tables are oval and oblong and size depends on the leaves I have in.
Welcome to the group Trudyann, I have you on the list!
my table is rectangle, but really no preference. The room is pale yellow & teal, nautical.
