    Late summer I spy swap, Signup Closed (Full)

    I am looking to start a 5" I Spy charm swap with 40 members. The 40 members will submit 40 squares of 3 different quilt quality fabrics.

    * SIGNUP ends June 29, 2012 or until we have 40 members. You must send me a PM in order to get on the sign-up list.

    First things first: Please read all the general swap rules of the board, these also apply to this swap. They are located on the top of the swap board written by the administration. Or, here is the link ...

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    ~~The rules had to be posted, but now to the fun stuff!! So who is in????

    *MATERIALS:
    Purchase (or raid your stash) three different I Spy fabrics (a yard should do it depending on if you wish to fussy cut or how you cut designs out). Cut 40 (forty) 5 inch squares out of each of the 3 (three) different fabrics (washed, ironed and in marked zip lock bags for safe transportation).

     Please use 100% cottons only! If in doubt of fiber content, please leave it out! And NO flannels (this time).

     Please be sure to trim off the selvages before cutting your squares. Also, try to be accurate in your cutting of the squares, so they DO measure 5".

     Be sure that your image will fit in the square and not be hidden in the inch seam allowance.

     Please, please, please double check that you have 40 squares per set!! We don't want to short change anyone.

     It seems to work best if you put each sets of squares in small ziploc baggies. Be sure to label each baggie with your board name, name, address, etc.

    * MAILING DEADLINE: I would like to receive all packages by July 31, 2012 and will sort and mail out squares by August 20, 2012. Please PM me your address so I can add you to the list and send you my mailing address.

    You will mail the squares to me in a priority flat rate envelope or regular bubble wrap envelope using postage stamp(s) on the identical return envelope. Please, double check the postage, as I wouldn't want your squares to be held up. I can't be responsible for extra postage fees. I'll sort all the squares and send them back to you.

    Important!!!! There has been a problem reported with the post office accepting the pre-metered return envelopes, and I would hate to have your envelope held up because of expired postage. So please use a stamp or stamps!

    COMMUNICATION: If something comes up and you are not able to meet the deadline for mailing, or if you need to drop out, please let me know as soon as possible.

    Are licensed fabrics allowed? Examples: Dora the Explorer, Bugs Bunny, Batman, etc?

    Are seasonal/holiday fabrics allowed? Halloween (ghosts, black cats, pumpkins), Easter (Easter eggs, bunnies), Christmas (Santa Claus, etc)- etc.???
