    Everyone in Quail, 3 month group should send me F8s. Please wash, press, remove selvages, cut into F8s (approx. 18x11, no smaller than 18x10), bag, label with your name and any requests and then put them into a large ziplock-type envelope inside your mailing envelope with your name and address on it. Remember, you will be shipping with tracking. All fabrics must be in my hands on or before Thursday, January 18, 2018 and I will turn around and send them out on Monday, January 20, 2018. If all fabrics are in sooner, I'll mail sooner.

    Shipping: When you mail to me, please do so in whatever manner you wish as long as you do so with tracking. Please review shipping rules below and be sure to send me the tracking number as soon as you get it. Be sure to include $7.25 for return shipping. If the money/prepaid labels are missing, I will hold your package until I receive it. No checks or Paypal please.

    Please have fun! It’s time to play with fabric you might not normally use, show your skills, make some new friends, say hello to old ones, and generally enjoy the experience. Let’s go!

    Rules/Guidelines:

    Please make sure to also refer to the basic policies that apply to all swaps through the board: Rules for Swaps and Similar Activities - Updated 8 December 2010.

    Fabric, Completed Block and Package Preparation:
    1) Use only 100 percent quilting cotton. Please pre-wash and press your fabric without any fragrance residue. Remove selvages before cutting into Fat Eighths, generally about 18” x 11” but no smaller than 18”x 10”, no exceptions! Please keep off-sized pieces for your own use. If you send me smaller pieces, I will return them to you at your expense.
    2) When mailing your F8s to me, please make sure they are individually sealed in a small Ziploc-type bag, no hard zippers please. Label each F8 with your board name easily visible to me along with any instructions or color requests for your fabric. (Do not specify a recipient unless a fabric is being directed to a particular person.) Labels are useful to help the recipient prevent fabric mix-ups, something that’s easy to do. Please then take all the individually wrapped F8s and put them in a Ziplock-type bag large enough to accommodate them all onto which you have written your name and address. When you send your completed blocks back to me, please seal and label your completed blocks with the owner’s name and your name easily visible to me in a similar manner as you did the F8s.
    3) Please mail your F8s to arrive by Thursday, January 18, 2018. The sooner everyone gets them to me, the sooner they go out! Be sure to send me the tracking number as soon as you ship.
    4) Carefully handle all fabric received and completed blocks, placing them somewhere safe until mailing time comes.
    5) To help keep track of the fabrics and blocks made, I may establish an online Fabric Gallery.
    6) You are required to keep in touch with your group by posting to the dedicated Boom 20 Quail thread at least every 2 weeks. This is a requirement. If you don’t wish to keep in touch, this is not the swap for you.
    7) All blocks must be completed within the time frame for the group and mailed to me with a tracking number.
    8) All blocks must be 12 1/2” unfinished. Blocks may be regularly pieced, paper-pieced, appliquéd, whatever the block maker decides to do. It is up to each individual. Please do not request specific blocks as the idea is to let everyone, of every skill level, join in and show their talents.
    9) Most importantly, have fun!

    Important Shipping Details
    You must supply me with tracking numbers on all parcels sent to me and I will do likewise when I mail to you. All shipping costs are your responsibility. You may ship to me in whatever tracked package you like however I will only ship to you in USPS Padded Priority Envelopes (unless other arrangements have been made) at the rate in force at the time of shipping. Today that cost is $7.25. Please send a pre-paid envelope or label or you may send me $7.25 in well-concealed cash and I will supply the envelope. Envelopes stamped with “regular” postage stamps will no longer be picked up by my carrier but must be taken in person to the post office. This will delay shipping until I can get to the post office so please no “regular” stamps. I do not accept PayPal or checks.

    Keep in mind the following:
    You must be in good standing with previous swaps. Anyone with a poor track record of fulfilling swap commitments will not be permitted to join. If you sign-up and do not fulfill your commitment, negative feedback will be given.

    All skill levels are welcome but you must be able to sew a 12 ½ inch, basic, well-constructed block. The block doesn’t have to be detailed but it must not be falling apart. All seams should be ¼ inch with at least 12 stitches per inch. Blocks should not leave your hands until you know you have made every effort to get them as close to the 12 ½ inch size as you can reasonably get. We all respect new quilter’s need to learn and that will be taken into account. If you cannot consistently construct a 12 ½ inch block, this is not the swap for you. Also, this is important: Please allow yourself enough time to complete your full set of blocks. In other words, don’t leave them to the last week! The results can be hit-or-miss. And please be sure to clean up the blocks by trimming your threads and cutting dog ears.

    Please pre-wash your 100 percent cotton quilting fabrics without any fragrance residue. Please note that that some swappers may be smokers or have pets. If pets or smoke is a problem for you, this isn’t the swap for you.

    No public complaints or criticisms for any reason are permitted. All complaints must be addressed by Private Message (PM) or email to me at [email protected]. No Exceptions.

    Plenty of time. The f8s are due 1/18. Everyone should probably keep an eye on the weather though with this storm bearing down on the East Coast, it might slow down some mail service. Happy news, we're a balmy 28 compared to yesterday's low of 11.

    Also, I think I'm up to date on the Gallery for the photos of fabrics. Don't forget to post your fabric pix here before you ship! Pix should be 200kb or smaller please.

    My F8s went out this morning. Tracking number has been emailed. I think with this storm coming, now is the perfect time to stay inside and search for some new-to-me patterns that I can try out. Stay warm and safe, Everybody.

    Received my email and responded. There are lots of quail in my area. Love watching the mommies usher the babies across the road. They line up so adorably. Just don't like them when they jump our fence and eat my garden seeds. They drive the dogs crazy!
    I have my fabric pre-washed, just have not cut it and bagged them yet. Will get that done this week. Now to get those labels done.

    Janice, do you have a photo of what the bag should look like. I want to be sure I get this right. Then do I put a label on the block itself with their name and my name or just on the bag? I want to be sure I get this right. I know, confused I am.

    Here is my fabric - I know its already in the file but I wanted to try and put my name on it . Amazing when you actually hit the right button and are able to write!!
    And the picture of our local quail - I just love the plume that dangles. It reminds me of when someone puts fabric or chocolate in front of me!!

    QM, a small ziplock-type baggie will work just fine. Please try to get the sandwich or quart size without the hard zipper. Since you are in both groups, the smaller the baggies the better. Too large and it'll be tough to get your blocks back to you in a single packet. Labels on the outside of the bag work just fine as long as they stick well. You can always put a paper inside with the info as well as long as it faces out and I can read it without having to open it. Does that help?

    LJ I had to laugh at you comment about snow. My neice and her husband from Mass. took their camper down to south carolina to escape the snow you are expecting in Mass...she posted a picture of her husband shoveling 4-5 " of snow in his shorts down in SC... Strange weather everywhere!
