What is it called and where do you purchase it? Happy quilting all. I can't wait for my boomerangs to find their way back to me.
    It's called Glad Press 'n Seal. It has two sides - the sticky and the non sticky. You can get it next to the Saran Wrap and foil. Make sure when you use it to wrap your fabric or block that the sticky side is on the inside. I received two squishies where the sticky was on the outside, and it all stuck to the inside of the envelope. : )

    what is going on with the p.o.? i think it now stands for that other famous p.o. expression where o stands for 'off'. they are certainly arbitrary! i wanted to send a package to australia and they (the clerk helping me) told me it would be $20-$40. urk! i took it in, much slimmed down, the next day and it was $6. and that clerk said she could have sent the other one for around $12. i'm not a cheapskate, but i believe it travels on the same airplane either way. i just didn't want to pay for its seat of its own in first class! they must have had a pep talk about increasing revenues to keep the office open. let 'em close.
    if i go to the right clerk i can send squishies for 64 cents. i've had some go thru in business size enveopes for 44 cents. it's thickness as well as size, so i somethimes do some fancy folding on grown-ups so seams don't stack up. i use the 64cent envelopes because it's easier, and i'm confident no one on the other end will have to pay. peace of mind for 20 cents. lol

    Most of my squishies go at .44. The fat 8ths do. The blocks go at .44 if they're pretty flat. I use the sticky Press 'n Seal, but sometimes there are lumps from seam junctions that just make the envelope too thick. Our postmaster (who's my next-door-neighbor) uses the little template that you slide the envelope through, and if it hangs up then he recommends adding the extra .20. It's all based on the weight first (and they all weight less than an ounce) and then the thickness. I use the legal sized envelopes. So far I haven't had any returned for additional postage, and I hope the swappers on the other end don't have to pay extra, either.

    i'm going to try to post 2 photos-- i am never confident it will work. the first is my project that took 33 yrs (i'm not the only slow one, i'm sure) 8-)! and the 2nd one is my f8s.

    i am most proud of the first! this is my new (and only) grandbaby, olivia kate. she was born aug 3rd, and is 2-3 wks old in this picture. it is amazing how different she looks now! they grow so fast, don't they!

    well, my lack of confidence is justified! can't seem to bring pix from desktop to here. oh, whell, another time perhaps!

    all my 8ths went for 44 cents, 98 cents to Canada, and 105 to England. My blocks are being sent for 61 cents in the US..Not sure about the out of states for them yet.

    I found that when mailing, if you fold the material so that it's almost the same size as the envelope it mails better. I know with some of the envelopes I received were fine, but it the material was folded thick and smaller than the envelope the machine left skid marks on them and postage due was added before I received it. Mailing out the finished blocks can be just as bad at a fussy post office-Last swap I had envelopes go for $.44 to $1.74 because of the thickness of the seams. Towards the end of the swap I was much more attenative to the seams and the blocks went out for $.64 and I did use larger envelopes! It also depends on who's at the counter, some clerks are better at letting things go through. :lol: But the big difference in price was because of the thickness (not just a letter inside)-or so the clerk explained to me-I sent 6 at $1.74 ea. that was a shock, but then I changed the size of the envelope and had no other high postage. 8-) I just put it up to trial and error!

    I wanted to say that I love both of these blocks but I hit the send button before I typed that. I'm a good quilter, but not such a good photographer or computer uploader!! Ha

    Okie Dokie... all the F8's left Possum Trot today. I squished them down real flat and used saran wrap in bigger envelopes. They all went for .44 and rates for international.

    I put some notes of guidance in with them...hope you enjoy.

    Post 'em! I am kind of drowning at work and can't hardly be active in the message portion of the group - but I'm here and using PMs and checking in here and there.

    Share all you want! I'm not a big fan of surprises.

    Can't wait!

    Thanks heyjami,
    Thanks for permission to show your block. I put it in the mail yesterday - you can get a sneak preview.
    Your F89 was just beautiful!
    It gave me permission to use the cardinal in fussycutting which I love to do.
    Well, enough talking. Hear is your block.
    roseysue

    I made this block for heyjami. I really enjoyed working with her fabric because of the variety of color. Enjoy it heyjami.

    Wow! Bonanza mail delivery yesterday!

    Received blocks from
    GOLDENDOG
    JENNIFER22206
    MOONRISE
    PEGGERSS
    They all are wonderful, thank you so much. If you could, please post pictures of your blocks - camera cord is packed in the garage and just found out the wood floors won't be laid for maybe 3 weeks! It is backordered so who knows when it will get here. But at least they found the leak!

    F8s received from
    OK DARLA
    GOLDENDOG
    JENNIFER22206
    BABYFIRE04
    Look forward to getting started on making blocks. Been a bit confusing around here lately and I'm trying to find time to sew but it seems impossible to concentrate with all the banging going on. Got 4 blocks mailed yesterday.

    All of the F8's I have received all but one make it through with the postage they sent. Only one had 20 cents added and I didn't have to pay that, I guess my mail man did because I wasn't at home and he just left it...
