    February Fat Quarter Swap - Reds, Pinks & Whites

    FEBRUARY FAT QUARTER SWAP Reds, Pinks & Whites

    FAT QUARTERS MEASURE 18 x 22.


    Each pair of swap partners is swapping ONE SET OF FIVE FQs. You may sign up for more than one swap partner if you like. ((However, you may not necessarily be paired up with more than one)).

    Send me a PM to sign up including your board name real name, address and a phone number where I can reach you in case your package is not sent/received. Please PM me when you send and when you have received your FQ's. Tracking ###s are nice but optional. Per board rules if you do not follow the swap rules you risk being banned from future swaps.

    PLEASE COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR SWAP PARTNER WHEN YOU HAVE RECEIVED YOUR FQS.

    MAILING DEADLINE IS February 10th. THIS IS ETCHED IN STONE.

    Sign-ups are open until February 3rd and names will be posted on the 5th.

    I'm in. And I'm the first to sign up. Come on gals, let's get a lot of us in on this. I don't care much for themed fabric, but sure do like those colors. P M ing Jane as we speak.

    Theme, not theme, color choice, all good to me, its fabric, and as I am a fabriholic, it all works, and I'll find a way to make it work. I'm in. I have decided to try something new this year, so having some on theme and some just color selection should prove to be interesting. I am going to make a quilt, that will take a year if this fat quarter keeps up for a year, and make blocks out of what I receive each month, and make it into one single quilt. This should be interesting, or absolutely terrible. But have decided to use only one other fabric, a neutral of some sort to off set or go with. I went thru what I had and will be using in deep cream I think. Scary, way out of my comfort zone, but here I go.

    Great idea, AnngelAnne! I hope you post the blocks you make. We'll cheer you on, I'm sure.

    And, yes, the FQ Swap will go on - - - - if nothing else, we're continuing in memory of Linda, our previous host.

    How about if each of us post in other various threads on the QB encouraging others to join in the swap?? Guess we'll find out if the Moderators approve or not - - -

    Let's get lots of swappers!!

    OK! Here are our swap partners. Please get in touch with your partner for mailing information, etc.

    These FQ's do not necessarily have to be Valentine related; simply reds, pinks and whites. Find out what your swap partner prefers. Be sure to communicate with your partner when you have received your FQ's!!

    Bullock2us with sewellie

    Have fun and post pictures. We love pictures!!

    I have mine ready to mail tomorrow. Red is MY real favorite color. I shopped my stash and am happy to say I have enough to share. I did have to fight the shopping feeling though!!

    I found a cute little Valentine's hanky I'm going to send along with my FQ's to my partner. Hope you like it, partner!

    Can't believe how quiet this site is this time around. I sent a pm to my partner and haven't had an answer, so sent one again today. Hope she is doing okay. I will be sending out her package tomorrow. I also found a pattern for January block. I think I will do the block in the quarters I got from my swap partner and then again in the material I sent to her. Think if I do that every month, I will have 24 blocks by the end of the year to put into a top. Not sure if I will do a different pattern every month or the same one. I am leaning towards a different one. That will be 12 different patterns. This is going to be fun. I even hooked my sister into doing it with me. I split the fat quarters into fat eights and we can use just one other fabric, being the same through. Wish us luck!!

    Anngel - that sounds like a great plan. Would love to see a picture of the block you're planning to make.

    I mailed out my FQ package yesterday to my partner & she mailed out yesterday too. We're all set.

    How's everyone else doing?

    One of those looks familiar, I know I have some of it too. Nice selection sewellie. I have the pattern for the January swap picked out, will be cutting it this weekend, hopefully putting it together too, so I will post them as I go along. I think it will be fun. One block in my swap I sent, and one block in the swap I got for January, same pattern. Come on someone, join the challenge, lol. Man am I out of my comfort zone, I don't usually branch out on my own on an idea. This and the fish quilt I am currently working on, scary, lol. I know that sounds lame, but scary.

    I got a real surprise/shock in my mail. The package I mailed out to Lucky Alf2 came back to me; says 'insufficient funds' which is strange because I used the automated postage machine at the PO and paid for the amount on the screen. So sorry!!! Will mail out again today.
