8th Annual Humble Quilt Swap CLOSED

The past seven years I've hosted a doll size quilt swap and they have been resounding successes! Time for our 8th Annual Humble Quilts Doll Quilt Swap 2021. 

Continue reading for all rules. When the number of participants continues to rise, please READ everything before asking me a question. Please take the time to make a quilt that you'd like to receive. Due date for your little quilt to be in the mail is May1st. Please do not participate if you cannot meet the deadline.

Swap is CLOSED with 70 participants!

Fabric: 1775-1910 is a wide span of time but that is what we are looking for. Look HERE if you are unsure what reproduction fabric is.

We are not using 1920's-Current
Not primitive style, like Jan Patek, or cutesy like some of Primitive Gatherings or Joined at the Hip. (which I love, just not for this swap)
We want the quilt to look like it time traveled from days past.

  • Hand or machine quilting is fine. Quilted with a few ties is fine. Ties only is not.(please no yarn)
  • No pre-printed panels
  • Please attach a label and add a note so the recipient knows who to thank.
  • Thank the person who sent you a quilt. 
  • If the workmanship is very poor and it looks like it was done very unthoughtfully I want to know and I'd like to see photos. 
  • There is no need to send extras and please do not feel pressure. Some people are on a tight budget but  we still want them to play! 
  • We will have a linky party so we will be able to see all the little quilts!

  • 24" x 24" or smaller. (It doesn't have to be square), Civil War reproductions, a label, with a deadline of mailing by April 30th.   Please no smaller then 12"x12" .

    If you cannot mail international for financial reasons please let me know. You do not have to leave that info in the comments, you can email me.  In previous years I let you not mail international for any reason, but I'm changing that. It is the same people willing to send international doing it over and over.  If you just don't want to send overseas because going to the post office is a hassle, then please join another swap. 

    If you are interested please send me your full name, mailing address and if you  cannot send international to    
    Even if you were in a past swap, please send me the pertinent info. 
    I'll take signups through - Midnight PST

     (Or until I reach a total of 70 swappers- it won't take long!)
    I will send you your swap partner soon after. 

    If I do not know you, if you have never commented on my blog or

     we've never emailed than I may not allow you to join. Don't take

     it personal. 

    It isn't a race (although there is a deadline) there is no reason to rush and do a crappy job. This type of workmanship is not acceptable.  It doesn't have to be perfect. So many of my points do not match, but I do know how to attach a binding and basic quilt construction. Have fun and enjoy the process!
