LuvTooQuilt is hosting another swap!!! …….10 1/2" layer cake Swap..

“Stars & stripes FOREVER.. .“


Each swapper will submit 12 squares of any 1 (one) UN-washed 100% cotton fabric that contains STARS OR STRIPES OR A COMBINATION OF BOTH in any color or combination of colors.*(If you have any questions please ask.) ~~{[email protected]

Squares should be carefully rotary cut from UN-washed 100% cotton fabric. Keep in mind that your squares could end up in a child's quilt. Select fabrics that will hold up to a lot of love, wear, tears, draggin', cuddlin', washing, and trips through the dryer. Fabrics that fray easily, or are fairly easy to see through are not good candidates for this swap.

Please be advised that fabrics that are NOT stars or stripes fabrics will be returned, Squares that are not square, too wonky or too off grain, or those that are not 10.5 or larger, will be returned unswapped.
Anything less than MY 10.5 measurement will be returned. If you are unsure of your accuracy, over-sized squares will be accepted as they can be cut down to size if needed be. Will accept any squares larger than 10.5 inches... please nothing over 11 inches as they become hard to put in baggies..

Here’s how it works: - In your packet to me you will enclose:

1 gallon size Hefty slider bag with 12 ct – 10 1/2 (up to 11) inch squares of ONE fabric for each set

~ Fabric must be UN -washed, ironed and in gallon bags for safe passage thru USPS.

~ Please remember that each set should be cut from a different unwashed fabric

~ 5-6 sets fit in ONE priority flat rate envelope

~ It is aprox 1 yard per 12ct – 10.5 (up to 11I) inch squares.

~ There is a SIX set limit in this swap plus ONE optional TWIST(s)

~ INCLUDE your screen name ON your baggies along with SET amounts.
***Example- I would like to do 4 (four) sets - ((4 sets mean that you would send 12 ct – 10.5 (up to 11 inch squares from FOUR different fabrics for a total of 48 squares, each set in separate gallon size bag(s) so, written legibly with a sharpie marker or pen, on each of my bags will have:

luvTooQuilt X4 (plus 3 twists)

~ You may also include but not mandatory, your real name, mailing address, should your envelope be swallowed by the USPS machines for identification purposes- an adhesive return label perhaps.?. )

~ Please staple a piece of your fabric on the outside of the baggie...
**** A 2x3 inch (aprox) piece of your fabric is required stapled on the outside of the individual baggie for identification purposes. (See pic)

Also in your package INCLUDE Sample pieces of each of your fabric – ( 2x3 tiny strips pieces from your leftover fabric is the prefect size..) Some of you stapled the pieces to a small piece of cardboard/cardstock/paper with an addt’l addy label& board name- (see pic) It is my goal NOT to give you back your fabric square…And this aids me keeping track who sent in what since there are over 100 sets…

Also in your package INCLUDE a self-adhesive return address label, and return priority postage. ($4.95) Should you require delivery confirmation- highly recommended!!! - An additional $.70 is required. Please remember that if you do not send enough return postage I will hold them until you send the difference. After 30 days, I will donate the unclaimed squares to charity. DO NOT mail return SAS envelopes!!!!! Postage ONLY please!!! ANY ENVELOPES SUBMITTED WILL NOT BE USED - to hard to keep track of the envelopes - exceptions for Tyveks can be made, please contact me.. (PM me for international info)
***Due to quick turn-around and distance of my bank I WILL NOT ACCEPT PERSONAL CHECKS***
Postage stamps, USPS money orders (or concealed cash at your own risk) will be accepted as forms for postage/shipping costs..

I would like to have these in hand no later than 7/22/2011 (so with a post mark no later than 7/16/2011 that should give the USPS ample time to deliver with NO grace period.) After 7/18 PRIORITY is recommended. After 7/20, Mandatory OVERNITE shipping is required.... International members need to send them to me sooner- PM for details

Please remember that any packages received after 7/22/2011 will be automatically returned unswapped. Any member not fulfilling commitment will not be accepted in future swaps and negative feedback will be posted to members account per Moderators requirements.

I will then sort 7/23-7/28 and hope to mail out squares on 7/29/2011 –No later than 8/1/2011
Reminders and swap rules can be found here - http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

AND THE TWIST…………..a POTHOLDER !!!!

~ ONE potholder of choice.. Any color, any size, any pattern….. Only requirement is that it is a usable potholder... Please keep in mind it will be used as intended so make it as heat resistant as possible to avoid burns… Make one as if you were making it for yourself to avoid harm and injury..

Each member is allowed ONE TWIST. Please enclose potholder in appropriate sized slider/ziplock bag for travel thru the USPS. Write board name ONLY on the baggie and I will then swap bag for bag –potholder will not be removed from the baggie. You will in return get ONE DIFFERENT baggie from another member of this swap

I have a couple of "duh" questions -
Do they have to be patriotic colors, or just anything with stripes and stars?
What is a twist??
Thanks! May be interested if I can make a trip to the LQS in time.

Thanks for your interest in this swap.. The fabrics can be any color and design and not limited to 'patriotic' theme.. So if you have celestial fabric with .. Stars... it is acceptable.. If you have a green solid with white stripes randomly thru it.. it is acceptable..

As for the 'twist' its just an added bonus to play.. sometimes its 'different 10.5in squares but this swap the twist is a homemade/handmade potholder.. ANY size, ANY design, ANY color - the only requirement is that it MUST BE A USABLE POTHOLDER.. So heat resistant is a must..

clear as mud.. ?
