#HalloweenQuiltSwap2019

This is the home page for all things Halloween Quilt Swap-related!

There are 37 participants this round so I’ve decided NOT to assign teams. I didn’t want to limit the way you interact with fellow creators and any teams smaller than 20 tend to feel a little bare. I am happy to share that I’m also personally participating in this round and am thrilled to join in the Halloween fun!!

PROGRESS POST due no later than September 30. Post as many as you like!

COMPLETION POST due no later than October 13.

DO NOT MAIL until I have commented on your completion post and given the OK.

RESOURCES

I wanted to share a few links to helpful tutorials. Feel free to comment with additional ideas you want to share with the group!
