Description:

CHANGES HAVE BEEN MADE TO THIS SWAP. IF YOU HAVE BEEN PART OF THE FIRST THREE SWAPS IN THIS SERIES THEN PLEASE READ THIS NEW POSTING IN ITS ENTIRETY. THERE IS IMPORTANT INFORMATION IN THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS:

This is just a simple fabric swap. It is the 4th swap in a series of 12. We will be sending THREE 9"x9" squares of fabric to EACH of your partners (you will have four). This means you will be sending 12 squares of fabric and hopefully after about 9 more swaps, you will have enough to make a queen size quilt.

(Due to my faulty mathematical calculations, I have increased the number of squares we will be sending to our partners and the number of swaps in this series. We need 132 squares. The previous amount of squares would not have been enough [8 squares X 9 swaps = 72 squares]. So, I have extended the series and increased the squares [12 squares x 11 swaps = 132]. Since we've already done three swaps with eight squares, that means we have 24 squares [132 squares - 24 squares = 108 squares left; 108 squares / 4 partners = 27 squares; 27 squares / 3 squares each partner = 9 swaps left].)

You can join as many as you want. There are no material requirements and it's sender's choice, so feel free to send your leftovers, if you have any. If you don't like the fabric you got, reswap it in the next one (no one says you have to keep it). DON'T give the sender a bad rating. If your partner sends you a fabric square measuring 9"x9", then they get a five regardless of your preferences! If you like the fabric, give them a heart.

*There has been a problem in the past with people not cutting their squares actually SQUARE, so please make sure this time that your squares are, indeed, actually square. This goes for everyone, including myself. Thanks, guys.

*I made the turn-around shorter this time, because it's a really simple swap and everyone should have few problems with sending out sooner. However, if there are concerns about it, just let me know. Thanks.

*I have also decided that the time between swaps will also be shorter so that we can get to making our quilts faster! If you have any concerns about THIS, just let me know. Thanks, again. (:

Newbies welcome with a well filled profile and everyone must have a rating of 4.8 and higher. No recent 1's or 3's. That means 1's must be at least 6 months old and 3's must be at least 3 months old. I will be checking profiles and if I have questions or concerns, I will message you. I will angel if necessary (but I pray it isn't, this really isn't that hard). :D

Do we have to send in 3 of the same fabric square to each person?

Selah, I send three different fabric squares to each person. But you can send the same three different patterns to each of the four partners. There again, I read their profiles and try to send something that each one likes. One of my partners likes birds. I had three different patterns with birds, that is what I sent her, another liked yellow, she received 3 different patterns of yellow, another liked pink, she received her beloved pink, 3 different patterns. Each one of my partners have sent me different patterns each time. Hope this helps.

Ok, yes that makes sense. Thank you!

Canada Post may be going on strike next Wednesday the 25th - do not want my swaps stuck in transit - they are ready to go - will mail when I am sure they will go through. To my swap partners, please be patient.
