    Closed for Sign Ups - "Stash Buster 2012" - Jan 2012- 10.5 Layer Cake Swap....

    LuvTooQuilt is hosting another swap!!

    “Stash Busters 2012 “…….10 1/2" layer cake Swap..

    Swap open for registration until 15th of January or until 130 sets filled, whichever comes first.....


    Each swapper will submit 12 squares of any 1 (one) UN-washed 100% cotton that you have in your STASH!!!!! ~~{[email protected] *(no flannel, no homespun, OR eyelets.. ONLY 100% quality Cotton)

    Squares should be carefully rotary cut from UN-washed 100% cotton fabric. Keep in mind that your squares could end up in a child's quilt. Select fabrics that will hold up to a lot of love, wear, tears, draggin', cuddlin', washing, and trips through the dryer. Fabrics that fray easily, or are fairly easy to see through are not good candidates for this swap.

    Please be advised that fabrics that are NOT square, squares too wonky or too off grain, squares that contain selvages, or those that are not 10.5 or larger, will be returned unswapped. Yes it is sad, but it has happened.. Anything less than MY 10.5 measurement will be returned. If you are unsure of your accuracy, over-sized squares will be accepted as they can be cut down to size if needed be. Will accept any squares larger than 10.5 inches... please nothing over 11 inches as they become hard to put in baggies..

    Here’s how it works: - In your packet to me you will enclose:

    1 gallon size Hefty non pleaded SLIDER bag with 12 ct – 10 1/2 (up to 11) inch squares of ONE fabric for each set

    ~ Fabric must be UN -washed, ironed and in gallon bags for safe passage thru USPS.


    ~ Selvages MUST be removed entirely from both ends. Be sure to remove ALL selvage holes.

    ~ Please remember that each set (baggie) should be cut from a different unwashed fabric

    ~ 5-6 sets fit in ONE priority flat rate envelope… *(confirm with your PO for price increase)

    ~ It is aprox 1 yard per 12ct – 10.5 (up to 11I) inch squares - IF your fabric is 44 wide.

    ~ There is a SIX set limit in this swap plus 6 optional TWIST(s)

    ~ INCLUDE your screen name ON your baggies along with SET amounts.

    ********* Example- I would like to do 4 (four) sets - (4 sets mean that you would send 12 ct – 10.5 (up to 11 inch squares) from FOUR different fabrics for a total of 48 squares) Each set in separate gallon size bag(s) so, written legibly with a sharpie marker or pen, on EACH of my bags will have:

    luvTooQuilt X4 (plus 1 twists)

    ~ You may also include but not mandatory, your real name, mailing address on each baggie, should your envelope be swallowed by the USPS machines for identification purposes (an adhesive return label perhaps.?. )


    ******* NEW CHANGE ADDED: *********
    ~Staple a piece of your fabric SELVAGE (with MFG/designer identification) on the baggie...
    **** This selvage piece of your fabric is required. Please staple on the outside of the individual baggie for identification purposes… One exception: Batiks - as they do not have printed selvages.. Should you OMIT the selvage, the baggie will be returned unswapped..


    Also in your package INCLUDE in a sandwich baggie :
    ~ ONE Sample piece of each of your fabric – (at least 2x3.) Some of you stapled the pieces to a small piece of cardboard/cardstock/paper with an addt’l addy label & board name- (see pic) It is my goal NOT to give you back your fabric square… And this aids me keeping track who sent in what since there are over 100 sets.


    ***** PLEASE NOTE AS OF JAN 22, 2012 THE POSTAGE RATES WILL GO UP ****
    ~ A self-adhesive return address label, and return priority postage OF $6.05... Please remember that if you do not send enough return postage I will hold them until you send the difference. After 30 days, I will donate the unclaimed squares to charity of my choice.


    *** DO NOT HIDE POSTAGE IN THE TWIST BAGGIE... ***
    I do not look in the baggies, however you may conceal it in any of your MAIN swap baggies..

    *** DO NOT mail return SAS envelopes!!!!! Postage ONLY please!!! ***

    *** Due to quick turn-around and distance of my bank I WILL NOT ACCEPT PERSONAL CHECKS ***
    Postage stamps, USPS money orders or concealed cash (at your own risk) will be accepted as forms for postage/shipping costs..

    I would like to have these in hand no later than 1/20/2012 (so with a post mark no later than 1/16/2012 that should give the USPS ample time to deliver with NO grace period.) After 1/16 PRIORITY is recommended. After 1/18, Mandatory OVERNITE shipping is required.... International members need to send them to me sooner- PM for details

    Please remember that any packages received after 1/20 will be automatically returned unswapped. Any member not fulfilling commitment will not be accepted in future swaps and negative feedback will be posted to members account per Moderators requirements.

    I will then sort 1/21-1/29 and hope to mail out squares No later than 2/1/2012

    Reminders and swap rules can be found here - http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    Eh I guess I was still in shock mode when the contractor was escorted by hubby
    THROUGH- OUT THE HOUSE !! Ugh I was completely mortified as they walked on and over piles of laundry in the basement.... !!!! Im doing laundry- its in piles at the base of the stairs !!!!! He never told me they were going in the basement- just the main level.. and I made sure that area was decent !!!! Well at least it was 'sexy wear' ...

    MORTIFIED I TELL YA !!

    Poor luv - I understand about laundry- it is not my favorite thing either

    Perhaps we should all move to a nice tropical climate where only short and t -shirts are the popular attire.

    Have the contractor put in a dumbwaiter or a stair lift- then put the laundry basket on it and push the button- wa-la- not carrying baskets

    On the beach, no laundry - just walk under the outdoor showers with your clothes on and dry in the lounge chair in the sun while drinking one of those umbrella drinks
