Question about secrecy!

Me again - my posts are like buses these days - none for ages, then loads come at once!

Anyway, it's just come up in conversation that some people might have expected this swap to remain "secret" until quilts were actually received in the post. As I knicked the swap format from the yahoo group quiltswap, I had never intended to do it that way, but had simply intended to post a list of who got what quilt, once I had matched them up (which is what I did). I've just re-checked my guidelines/rules for the swap and it doesn't specify which way it would be (whew!), so I don't feel too bad about doing it this way, though my apologies if it surprised you, if you were thinking you'd not know what quilt you'd be receiving until it showed up.

More to the point, a question - when this swap runs again, which would you prefer? Would you rather know once a decision has been made, which quilt you'll be lucky enough to receive or would you rather wait until it arrived on your doorstep? Please vote in the poll in the sidebar - anyone can vote, whether or not you took part in this swap and whether or not you plan to take part in any future ones. Just curious what most people would prefer!

Hi I didn't think we would find out what one we were getting but when I did it was a surprise now I can't wait to see it in person. Its like someone having a baby some what to know and some don't want to know. Me what ever I can do either one. It was fun either way.

I have an "in" with the organizer of this swap, so could probably have found out anyway. (I'm Kate's mum.)

I prefer knowing as soon as the quilts are assigned.

I prefer for the quilt to just arrive.
