    "How now BROWN cow !! " October 2012 - 10.5 layer cake swap

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

    “How now BROWN cow !!!! with a twist of Orange....


    Swap open for registration until 22nd of October or until 130 sets filled, whichever comes first.....

    Each swapper will submit 12 squares of any 1 (one) UN-washed 100% cotton BROWN quality quilting fabric (no flannel, no homespun, no eyelets, and no broadcloth ) ~~<<~@

    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 51% or more -brown in color, or 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 desire assistance in cutting please contact me. )

    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 6 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, 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 October (10/31).
    So with a post mark no later than 10/22 that should give the USPS ample time to deliver via parcel post with a few days grace period. After 10/24 PRIORITY is recommended. After 10/27, Mandatory OVERNITE shipping is required.... International members need to send them to me sooner- PM for details

    Please remember that any packages received after 10/31 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 11/1-11/10 and hope to mail out squares No later than 11/12

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


    AND THE TWIST…………..Orange !!!!

    ~ONE 2.5x WOF from FIVE different fabrics of any fabrics that are any shade or shades of orange !!!
    ~ Fabrics must contain more than 51% of any shade of orange...
    ~2.5 strips must be from 100% unwashed quilting cotton fabs…
    ~NO flannel, no eyelets, no Holiday, Quilting cotton fabric only...
    ~Please cut carefully - NO ‘V cuts at the folds …

    Place all FIVE DIFFERENT 2.5xWOF in a SANDWICH or snack size baggie- FLAT and staggered so I can count them.

    HA HA HA!!! My mind and body seem to agree with you. They both seem to think that the sleep is optional and have been waking me up around 3 and not going back to sleep for hours. UGH!!! I'm exhausted...

    I'm packing my bags now and will be on my way shortly. Oh, in my dreams! We just had our furnace inspected before we turned it on this winter and guess what. Yep, we have to buy a new one. We have no heat at all right now and it is 48 out. My nose is cold and I know I would warm up shopping! LOL

    OH NO!!! We had ours replaced last year (when we had the A/C unit go out in July). That was an experience...

    Well...I'll just go shopping for you!!!

    July in Texas with no A/C is as bad as October in Nebraska with the heat! I went out and bought a room size heater and I'm now pretty toasty in my sewing room. We are on a waiting list for a service call (3-4 days) and I've called four other places that sell furnaces and it is the same story. Glad it isn't below freezing!

    Would you like a list of colors that I like to take with you when you shop? LOL

    Send me the color list and I'll see what I fall in love with in those colors. Those that need to conviently stay in my stash...or go to our fearless leader...

    BTW, where is the rebel today??? I feel like I'm being the rebel now.

    I am right here - Missy Now don't you get too big for your britches young'n

    Some of us are still working for a living you know

    dottie dodge- come on down and pick me up on the way to Houston. I can help with gas for your car and I promise I will only want to stop at quilt shops and love on the fabric. I won't fill the car up with extra fabric so there will be plenty of room for your fabric
