I'm very happy to be joining in this year. I already have a project in mind for the candies.

I'll be able to use my stripology ruler to cut the squares, goes really fast!

I also love any reason to play with my stash.

This sounds interesting but I don't quite understand how it works. Are you paired with another person to exchange with?How many packets of 50 would be required during the year? Thanks.

Suern3 the way I understand it is that you get a list of the birthday people and you send each a pack of 50 - 2.5" squares

Barbarakibler23, I just sent my intent to you to be in the group again this year. I really enjoy this swap. My life was so extremely busy last year. I had two daughters and a niece get married, moved my mom to Assisted living and cleaned out her house to sell, and had an auction, and my mother-in-law passed away and had to clean out here house and have an auction, too. This year I have already been cutting as my life has now slowed back down to normal. Welcome to all the newbies. It is so much fun. I am currently working on a quilt with my squares from this swap and my own stash.

Thanks for the info. Now that I understand, I don't have enough fabric to participate.

Thank you for having me. I’ve been scanning my fabric since I learned about this swap. I’ve been in other swaps with many of these wonderful quilters.

Now, i’ll Wait for further instructions. Or when you say begin, i’ll Ask a dozen questions.

GramE.... make sure you read all the info on the first post. Then you can start cutting your squares out. make sure you have 50 different fabrics for each person. So far we are up to 33 people but I pretty sure we will get up to 37.
