Read the description of the quilt to see if there are any palette restrictions or themes to follow
Draw your tile within the transparent area of your checked out tile (any changes you make to your neighbour's borders will be discarded by the system)
Create only original art (cutting and pasting from others is generally frowned upon)
Leave a fun, interesting (and usable!) edge for your neighbours
If you're given a bad pattern or something odd in your checkout tile, don't continue it. Try to be creative and incorporate it into your work
See something in the border that you recognise? If you like it, try to continue it rather than make something surreal/weird/funny.
The tilers next to you will enjoy knowing they gave sufficient clues to allow you to continue it, and it gives the quilt an overall better feeling of continuity.
Use a brush tool or pixel tool to blend (not smudge!) the edges of your tile with the existing edges of your neighbours to create a wonderful, seamless image
Remember that the website will show the author's name so there's no need to sign your name on your tile
Check your tile in before your check-in deadline
Link to your tile once it has been made visible! Everyone will want to see it! Social media, blogs, etc
