    2" Squares Swap NOW OPEN

    WELCOME SWAPPERS!

    We will be swapping sets of 50 unique (no two alike) 2” squares. Participants may swap one to eight sets. Each set is to be packaged in a baggie with the sender’s real name, and board name on the bag. I will swap baggie for baggie.

    Please be sure you have 50 well cut squares in each bag, with no duplicates in one bag. All bags may be alike, but no like squares in any one bag. Please use only good quality quilting 100% cotton. NO blends or homespun fabrics, please. Rotary cutting is strongly recommended!

    To sign up, pm me by July 31, and tell me how many sets you want to swap, up to 8. When you pm I will also need your real name and private email address. I will then send you my mailing address to send your squares to. Squares must be received by Aug. 15. I will swap and mail packages out by or before Aug. 22.

    Enclose $5.95 in cash or stamps (no metered labels!) in your package for return shipment. I will mail your squares back in a padded priority envelope. International swappers will need to mail at least two weeks before the deadline, and will be responsible to research and send the proper amount for return shipment.

    All general board swap rules apply… RULES FOR SWAPS AND SIMILAR ACTIVITIES - Updated 8 December 2010

    So start going through your scraps and cutting your 2” squares and get ready to swap! Use the thread to chat and visit with other members, and share patterns and ideas for using the 2" squares-- let's have fun with this!

    Please mail early!

    Got your pms, ladies! We have 4 in the swap so far, on the first day! Looking good...

    I thought I would show you all some blocks Ive been working on today, because they use the 2" squares for the 4-patches in them. The HSTs are made with 4" squares, sewn diagonally then trimmed down. I've used a lot of 2" squares in this scrappy quilt, so far.

    The first photo shows my Jacob's ladder blocks in blue scraps... laid out the "star" way I will assemble them. The second photo is my stacks of brown blocks, ready to be sewn together.

    This swap is really tempting! I have so many things going on though. I do have two of my swaps finished and ready to mail, also I see that Bonnie Hunter's blocks require mostly 2" squares, hmmmmm.
    I'll just have to think about this. I am going to be gone (family reunion) for a full week in August, too bad your send in date is so soon. I'll just have to think about this.
    Either way, I am going to keep in touch and lurk around. Is that okay?
    Good Better Best, never let it rest till the good is better and the better best

    Absolutely it's okay! The sign up is still open for 11 more days, receive date is nearly a month off. If you are busy in Aug, you have plenty of time to get your scraps cut and mailed before the end of the month. Hope you decide to play! 2" squares are so versatile.
