Welcome to the Quilting Board!
ok, this is making me nervous! Ya'll are talking about mailing several boxes. I understood that one "requirement" for this this swap is-4 fat quarters. and to spend no more than 20 bucks. we can shop our stash and make whatever else we like to send. first timer here so am I on the right path here? I don't want to disappoint anyone!
You never stand taller than when you stoop to help a child.
Sounds like you got it just right. Some people have a very large stash with lots of extras already put back. I can honestly say, I may be going a bit over $20. Inflation...and not a very large varied stash. And, I am getting a bit creative on the homemade items. But, unfortunately, it won't be tremendously over. I have a very limited budget at the moment. But, I don't think my Secret Giftee will be disappointed.
Last year, I was right at the $20 dollar mark. It was fun. A first time for me also. I also was very nervous. I think if you just keep it quilt related you'll be good. Unless of course, your Secret giftee gave you other suggestions.
I have shopped my stash, bought the fat quarters and a few small gifts. I made a few items as well with things I had on hand.
I think my recipient will be happy with what I am sending, even though I have had to watch my spending.
I showed the unwrapped items to my mil tonight and she is jealous (she does not sew, but is a painter).

Sounds awesome. I'm sure your secret gifted will be so suprised.i don't know about y'all, but, it makes me feel like a kid wondering if thry'll like it or not. And,I so totally know I'm way over thinking it. Lol
overthinking is easy to do; specially if you don't know the person.
I keep going back to it's just supposed to be fun.
