A great chance to make a new quilting friend

Be part of our first Mini Quilt Swap, open to all quilters in Canada and beyond. You do not need to be a CQA member to join the fun. Just fill out the form on January 2, 2020 so you can be partnered with a quilter who has interests similar to yours.  You and your partner will be introduced by email so you can get to know who you are making a quilt for and who’s making one for you. You will make a new friend!

The timeline to make the mini quilt, (no larger than 24” by 24”) is February to June 2020 ending with Quilt Canada 2020 in Edmonton, Alberta. For the partners who are going to Quilt Canada there will be a special meet-up for everyone to meet their partner and to swap their quilts.  If you or your partner are not going, you will swap by mail.

A Swap Leader will be assigned to you so you can ask them questions during the February – June time period.  You will “virtually-meet” your Swap Leader in February and they’ll introduce you to your swap partner.  This is going to be great fun!
