This is just a simple fabric swap. It is the 5th 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 7 more swaps, you will have enough to make a queen size quilt.

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

Canada Post may be striking on May 25th. I don't want to miss out on this swap - will notify my partners if strike is on. I have squares ready to go, but don't want them stuck in transit - will mail as soon as I know it is OK

Canada Post is on rotating strike - you may choose to wait or take a chance the swaps will go through. Thanks to all for understanding this Canadian dilemma

Hi everyone: Just want to say Im enjoying swapping so much Im getting addicted. Im moving back to Squamish, on June 25th, but Im going to keep on swapping. To those who sent me a package, my friend will send your package forward to me. The postal lock out is on now, so things may be hung up for awhile, so if I dont post my receiving your squares that is why. So ladies Im looking forward to swap #6.. Lois
