    Default FEB. F4 SWAP! St. Patrick's Day and Green fat quarters! Closes Feb 2nd

    FEB. Fat Quarter Swap! St. Patrick's Day and Greens!


    Description: This will be a monthly swap. You will sign up each month and you can choose each month whether or not to participate. You will be given a random person to swap with and that person will change each month. This is a secret pal swap.

    Each month there will be a different theme or color that we will swap. There is a limit of two swaps per person.
    **Each person will swap 5 fat quarters that go with the theme or color of the month.
    **FQ's can be purchased or can be from your stash but they must be 100% cotton and they must measure 18 x 22 inches (standard FQ).
    **They should be 5 DIFFERENT FQ's. but coordinating fabrics are never a bad choice!

    For the month of Feb. we will be doing a St. Patrick's Day and Green theme. While these are traditional St Patrick's Day colors you do not have to use St. Patrick's day fabric. There are hundreds of marvelous shades of green to chose from. please make sure if you chose a patterned fabric that GREEN is predominant not some tiny little leaf in the corner so you partner gets a good selection of fabric that the eye registers as mostly green.

    This month we are working on a regular turn around. I will give you your ship to names by the 4th. I would ask you have them mailed within 5 days of receiving them. GET your packages ready to mail prior to receiving your names please. I don't want any hurt feelings or sad people because they did not receive but they were good enough to send. If there is trouble this month I will go to partners next month. It would be tons easier so if you want to keep this a secret pal type of swap then please be responsible.


    Participants are required to PM me when they have received their FQ's and are required to post a PM thanking the sender. You don't need to let me know you have mailed.


    *When you send your FQ's please be sure to include your board/screen name so that people know whom to thank.

    If you would like to participate please PM me with: your board name, full name and address and the number of sets you would like to do. Two set limit.

    Please see the rules for all board swaps and PM me with any questions. This swap has been approved by the admin.

    I'm sending my PM. I haven't played since October when I never received any fat quarters from my swap person. I hope she's not allowed to play any more (I don't know who it was). Hoping things go better for February.

    So sorry that happened to you- if I would have known I would have been happy to send you some. Hope it doesn't happen again-that's no fun!

    So sorry you didn't receive in past swaps. Unfortunately since I didn't run them I have no idea who was to send to whom. I do check for bad feedback before you allowed to play and will leave it if you do not fulfill your obligation. So future swaps should be clear missing fat quarters. I am putting trust in all of you to sign up and send! so glad to have you back and will work hard at following up on any future missing fat quarters

    The greens are so very versatile even if you do not do a holiday theme they tend to be used often in so many things from table runners to wall hangings or if you do boom blocks and your needing a bigger variety of greens to mix things up a bit (always just missing that one shade that matches aren't you?) Today the snow is blustering about Wyoming. Its not laying down a ton but the wind sure is swirling it in clouds like crazy! the side walk is covered yet its just from blowing from left to right and back again
