    2014 Birthday Swap 2.5 sign up now !!!!

    2.5 Candy Birthday swap is now open for sign ups and will remain open until we get 35 people to join or February 19th.

    Hello and welcome to the 2.5" Candy Birthday Swap.
    this is how this swap will work:


    1. VERY IMPORTANT this is a year long commitment.
    2. PM me your name address, EMAIL, and your birthday (month and day)
    3. Get your packages of 50 unique 2.5" candy squares ready to be mailed.
    4. Starting for March I will send everyone a list of who is celebrating a birthday that month so you can send out their "candy present". I will send out the list on the 20th of each month.
    5. Birthday person please keep track of who you received your candy from please let me know if you have not received a package from someone.
    6. Sit back and wait for your birthday then go to your mailbox and enjoy little packages all month long!
    7. Please post on the thread when you have mailed your birthday package and of course wish them a Happy Birthday.
    I am going to limit this to the first 35 people and only address in the USA (for postage sake Sorry).

    The general swap rules apply: RULES FOR SWAPS AND SIMILAR ACTIVITIES - Updated 8 December 2010

    In addition the following rules apply:

    1. Please make sure to acknowledge everything you receive by posting to this thread. It would be faaaaaaaaaaaboulous if you also include photo(s).
    2. Any participant who fails to send all parcels expected in any given month will be immediately and permanently dropped from the mailing list.
    3. If that participant has already received parcels for her/his own birth month, that participant will also receive a Negative Feedback annotation.

    Any questions please feel free to post them in this thread...because someone else probably has the same ones!
    This is our second year for this swap .....the first year went well and many friends were made.

    I am in for this birthday swap. It was a lot of fun last year!
    Just a quick note, there are a couple of scrappy square quilts on the Islandbaik.com site for Quilted in Honor. There are some really nice free quilt patterns there.

    I believe she does want 50 different fabrics. Part of the object of the swap is variety. And boy are we rewarded!! It's a blast!

    What is a candy square. I am still relatively new to the new world of quilting--my granny taught me to quilt in the 1950s. I know a lot of the new expressions and love the new way of scrappy quilting--but candy square is a new one to me.
    Make every day count for something!

    They have10" Layer Cakes, 6.5" Charm Packs and Honey Buns, turn overs and Honey Combs. http://www.unitednotions.com/equivalent-measures.pdf "Candy" is another name for the little 2.5" mini charm packs. And they're addicting without the calories!

    Hello ladies...sign up is going well...with our 12 veterans returning from last year we have already added 4 more quilters!

    To answer some questions (you did great SheriR thanks )
    let's quilt: yes all fabrics need to be different. 50 different to each birthday girl.

    oldtnquiltinglady: candy square just a sweet term for 2.5" square

    A charm pack is 5" you could cut a charm pack into 4 equal pieces and have almost enough squares for four different people. (I think charm packs have 44 pieces...check for doubles).

    Hope this helps and I hope you join the fun......you will LOVE your birthday month!
