Since these tiny little squares don't cost much to mail no matter where you send them to, I am inviting all our international friends to join in the fun:)))
Several months ago I hosted a series of these swaps, but due to circumstances that was beyond my control, I had to leave swap-bot and my love of swapping behind for awhile. Now I am back and am starting fresh with this brand new series of swaps:) This is Round 1 of what I hope to be a monthly swap for many months to come:)))
For this swap you will send 50 1.5" fabric squares to each of 2 partners. Send no more than 2 squares of the same fabric, so you will be sending atleast 25 different fabrics.
The fabric you send MUST be 100% cotton or a cotton blend. No wool, rayon, polyester, etc. allowed!!! Please send quality fabric (not necessarily quilt quality), but MUST be good quality fabric that isn't so thin you can read the paper through it, lol. Be sure to choose pretty florals and prints mostly, but if you want to mix in a few neautrals, that is perfectly fine too. Just please limit the percentage of neautrals you send versus prints. Also, PLEASE.....be sure to measure and accurately cut each square 1.5".
I know that 50 to 2 partners sounds like an awful lot, but these little squares are so quick and easy to cut, you will have them all done before you know it:)))
Now some of you may be asking...."What on earth can you do with such tiny pieces of fabric?" Well, you can stitch them together to make a Postage Stamp Quilt, handbag, tote bag, placemats, coasters, tablecloth.....the possibilities are endless:))
Now let's get down to the Nitty Gritty:))) Newbies are welcome to join this swap, but must have a very well filled out profile. Seasoned swappers must have a 4.8 rating with no unexplained no-sends or 3 ratings. If you have received a 1 or 3 rating within the past 3 months, you need to pm me before signing up to explain your situation.
We all know that sometimes life happens that's beyond our control:) If for any reason you see that you are going to be late sending, be sure to contact both your partners and myself and let us know what's going on and all will work out fine:)))
If someone happens to get flaked on for this swap, either I will angel for you or I will find you an angel:)
