    Feb 2013 - Musical Mayhem 10.5 layer cake swap

    LuvTooQuilt is hosting another swap!! …….10 1/2" layer cake Swap..

    February is MUSICAL MAYHEM … With a charming twist……


    Swap open for registration until 20th of Feb or until 130 sets filled, whichever comes first.....

    Each swapper will submit 12 squares of any 1 (one) UN-washed 100% cotton ANY colored quality quilting fabric that you deem 'MUSICAL" (no flannel, no homespun, no eyelets, and no broadcloth ) OPen to your vey own interpretation.. SO think outside the box even!!!!. Please be curteous, and keep in mind, send what you would like to receive in return ~~<<~@

    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 are shedding, squares that contain selvages, or those that are not 10.5 or larger, will be returned unswapped. 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.. (If you would like /require assistance in cutting please contact me.- Ill need these fabrics sooner.. )

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

    • ~ 1 gallon size Hefty (or the like) 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 selvage ends- Including selvage holes.
    • ~ Please remember that each set MUST be cut from a different unwashed fabric
    • ~ 5-6 sets fit in ONE priority flat rate envelope
    • ~ 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 8 TWIST(s) MAX

    ~ INCLUDE your screen name ON your baggies along with SET amounts. *Example- I would like to do 4 (four) sets and a twist - ((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, should your envelope be swallowed by the USPS machines for identification purposes- an adhesive return label perhaps.?. )
    ~ Please staple a piece of your fabric on the outside of the baggie...A selvage piece with manufacture name of your fabric is required stapled on the outside of the individual baggie for identification purposes.


    Also in your package INCLUDE a Sample pieces of each of your fabric – ( 2x3 tiny strips pieces from your leftover fabric is the prefect size..) 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

    Also in your package INCLUDE in a sandwich baggie: a self-adhesive return address label, and return priority postage AND mandatory delivery confirmation. ($6.05 in Postage stamps, Concealed cash, or Postal Money orders ONLY)... 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!!! I will not accept stamped envelopes.

    ***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 the LAST BUSINESS DAY in FEB (2/28).
    So with a post mark no later than 2/22 that should give the USPS ample time to deliver via parcel post with a few days grace period. After 2/22 PRIORITY is recommended. After 2/25, Mandatory OVERNITE shipping is required.... International members need to send them to me sooner- PM for details

    Please remember that any packages received after 2/28 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 3/1-3/10 and hope to mail out squares No later than 3/11

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


    AND THE TWIST…………..Charms !!!!!

    FEB's theme is: SPOTS AND DOTS
    Any color and/or colors, must contain spots or dots to be acceptable


    Here’s how it works:
    ~Cut ONE 5x5 from 10 different 100% quality Cotton fabrics –no flannel, homespun, eyelet, see thru fabrics- When in doubt, leave it out!.
    ~Place the 10 different fabric sqs in a ziplock SANDWICH baggie for safe transport thru the USPS. (Ten DIFFERENT 5x5 sqs = ONE Twist ……………(MAX 8 Twists) )
    ~Label the baggie with your Board Name and the total count of TWISTS you are participating in..

    LuvTooQuilt x 8 Twists


    *** This TWIST is optional - Not mandatory to participate in the twist to join this swap ***

    @@@ Please EMAIL me ALL the info below to : [email protected] @@

    Board name,

    Man - you must be sewing up a storm and finishing everything if you are ready for a new swap

    I thought I was doing good to get three sets of curtains and a quilt done in January.

    Have my first February project blocks done ready to assemble and quilt. !!!

    Guess everybody is on a fabric moratorium this year. Well I could make just about anything musical if I really stretch it lol. Lots of nature sounds are musical, kinda. Time to get creative folks and join the fun!

    I am in for 6 sets. i just had to check my stash to see if I had enough fabric that qualified as "Musical" I will not do any twists. I very rarely use 5X5 squares.

    I will get them ready to mail so when you say send, they are on their way!
