Designed by Beth Helfter, EvaPaige Quilt Designs, Teal Mini Swap is an annual event intended to raise awareness of ovarian cancer, funds for Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, and give quilters and sewers a fun little swap.
Participants each recieve a small piece of the specially selected teal swap fabric - this year a lovely Moda teal! - which is to be used in their mini quilt, along with information about their swap partner. Minis are to be completed during the month of September and mailed to partners no later than October 2.
Participants have a choice of making either a mini quilt (18" square maximum) or a mug rug (10" square maximum). Be sure to check your preference on the registration!
The cost to participate is $15 for US registrants, and $18 for Canadian residents, of which $10 per participant will be donated directly to Ovarian Cancer Research Fund during the first week of September. The remaining funds will be used to offset administrative and shipping costs.
For more information, check out and join our "Teal Mini Swap" facebook page, where we'll be able to post photos of our minis mug rugs as we receive them, and the informational blog post "Two for Teal Almost Here!"
The fine print: Unfortunately, there are two small caveats to participation.
Hit that cute little button down there to register! I'm excited to have you aboard!
Thank you to this year's sponsors!
