Barbara, I went searching her page and found a photo that was labeled 2014 Birthday Swap. Yea, us! That sent me searching for my first photos of quilts from our swap and I found quite a few dated 2014, which meant I got them for my 2013 birthday or that I saved them for a year then started to use them . Is the first year of the swap 12, 13 or 14? I was thinking it was 2012, drat I was thinking the group was in our tenth year.

None the less, Swappers, search the link IBEX94 sent. So many good ideas for using our little 2.5s. https://www.pinterest.com/quiltnls/2...square-quilts/

LOL, saw two of my quilts on that Pinterest page, both made from the birthday swaps. One is my pink and green “Scrappy Swoon” and the other is an Arkansas Crossroads I made with each block a different color family.
Don’t forget that Quilted Twins have many patterns for 2.5s on their free patterns page.

Gannyrosie, sure do like your straight line quilting. Wow so simple and precise. Perfect for your quilt. I did one similar to your lay out but did diagonal corner to corner quilting.This let's us now that once we post a photo out in cyber world, it is no longer ours and that we are some terrific quilters that are admired by others.

Wmuteach is there a preference on mailing. I plan on using poly mailers since I have them. I also use pirate ship to make my shipping labels, it is a little cheaper than USPS.

is there anyone in this swap allergic to dogs? I do have a boxer, who does shed, but he is not around my fabric, ssoni can't 100% guarantee there would not be a stray.

Gannyrosie, If you have the poly mailers on hand use them. I use the plan brown 6 x 9 brown envelopes that I pick up from the dollar store 6 for $1 and they mail for slightly less than 80 cents. Other swappers send cards and pack the little squares in the cards. It is completely up to you. Everyone mails slightly differently.

It is so kind and thoughtful of you to ask about allergies. I have never asked nor been asked in the past. Let's see what every one says.

Gannyrosie you have given me yet another reason to be thankful..... Pet allergies are not one of the things that keep me from sewing! Thank you for asking and this prompts me to issue this change of circumstance alert to the group:

My son and his family have moved in with me while their home is being built. They brought their labrador. So my normally pet dander free home is not a pet dander free air zone. I don't have dog hair problems from the lab but if you do have pet allergies my next batch of candies will be cut in a pet dander air zone. I hope this is not a problem for any of you.

I also have a half lab/ half collie that sheds in the house, but we try to keep up with it.
