    LIGHT and Airy Spring 6-1/2" fabric swap March 2012 - SIGN-UP CLOSED!!!

    March’s swap theme is LIGHT and Airy Spring!!! Pastel colors and prints. 6-1/2” squares, up to 6 sets. Think light, think delicate, think 1930’s fabs, think airy spring. Please leave the brights at home in your stash and go with the lights.

    Registration is open to the first 156 Sets or until March 12th, whichever comes first. I would like to have these in hand no later than 03/20/2012. If you sign up, please follow through with commitment and deadline. If you sign-up and need to drop out let me know ASAP!!!

    Due to the private message constraints, I will be doing correspondence by e-mail. I have set-up a swap only e-mail address (approved by PatriceJ) at [email protected] (*Please use for swap ONLY correspondence)

    *~* Please E-mail me all the info below to [email protected]: *~*
    Board name:
    How many sets you're doing:
    Date when you plan ship your package by:
    E-mail address:
    Your real name:
    Your mailing address:

    *After I have received all of the info I will add you to the list of swappers and E-MAIL you a message with shipping instructions and a checklist.

    This swap was approved by PatriceJ. The link for general swap rules. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - *

    Each swapper will submit 12 – 6-1/2” squares of any 1 UN-WASHED 100% cotton fabric that encompass Pastel colors and prints. The fabric must “read” pastel. Think light, think delicate, think 1930’s fabs, think airy spring. Please leave the brights at home in your stash and go with the lights. *(If you have any questions please ask.)

    Squares should be carefully rotary cut from UN-WASHED 100% cotton fabric. If needed, please take the time to fussy cut. Fabric contains two selvaged ends. Make sure you completely CUT OFF BOTH!!! Select fabrics that will hold up to a lot of love, wear, and tear as well as multiple washings. Fabrics that fray easily or are fairly easy to see through are not good fabrics for this swap. Please be advised that fabrics that are NOT appropriate related fabrics, squares that are not square, off grain, those that are not the right minimum size, those with the selvage edge still attached, or those that are deemed unusable by me will be returned unswapped.. Please keep in mind I have the right to return all or part if your set is deemed unacceptable…so please take the extra moment to look over your 12 squares carefully before sending to me.

    I will accept squares 6-1/2” – 7” as most of us will use them as is. Anything less than MY 6-1/2” 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 need be... please nothing over 7”. Approximately 1/2 of a yard will yield 12 count – 6-1/2” squares nicely. If you are fussy cutting, please buy extra.

    * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - *

    Here’s how it works:

    In your package to me you will enclose:

    ** 1 QUART SIZED (Hefty/Ziploc) SLIDER bag with 12 count – 6-1/2” (up to 7”) squares of ONE fabric for each set. (Please note that the gallon sized baggies are getting harder to stuff into the flat rate envelope)
    ~Fabric must be UN-washed, ironed and in quart sized 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)

    ** Write your screen name ON your baggies along with SET amounts. For example, if I wanted to do 4 sets, I would write YosamitesaX4 on the bag in a Sharpie or pen that will not rub off or on a label attached to the baggie. ~~MUST HAVE NAME ON BAGGIE!!! If there is no name, you may get your own fabric back or you may get someone elses...
    ~ You may also include but not mandatory, your real name and mailing address on each baggie, should your envelope be swallowed by the USPS machines for identification purposes - an adhesive return label perhaps???

    ** Please staple (or tape) a piece of your fabric on the outside of the baggie. A piece of your fabric is required stapled on the outside of the individual baggie for identification purposes.

    Also in your package INCLUDE a sandwich baggie or envelope with the following:
    **Sample pieces of each of your fabric(s) stapled to 1 small piece of cardboard/cardstock/paper/etc.
    ~The fabric must be big enough for me to determine which fabrics you sent in; approximately 2”x2” from your left over fabric is perfect.
    ~Also include on the paper your board name, your name and your mailing address (an address label works great).

    ~My goal with this is so that I will NOT give you any of your fabric back. This helps me keep up with what everyone sent in as a quick reference, since I will have (hopefully) over 150 sets and a toddler who gets into EVERYTHING!
    **A self-adhesive return address label
    **Return priority postage of $6.00 – DO NOT SEND YOUR OWN ENVELOPES. Every package will contain delivery confirmation back home to you. This way I can track to make sure all are delivered. Please remember that if you do not send enough return postage I will not be able to return your swapped squares until you send me the difference. IF YOU DO NOT SEND AT LEAST $6.00, I will return your squares unswapped once postage is received. After 30 days, I will donate the unclaimed squares to charity. Due to quick turn-around I WILL NOT ACCEPT PERSONAL CHECKS!!! Postage stamps, Post Office money orders, or concealed cash at your own risk will be accepted as forms for shipping costs (NOT metered postage as some of these expire before I can get the packages back to you).

    * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - *

    I would like to have these in hand no later than 03/20/2012. A post mark no later than 03/13/2012 should give the USPS ample time to deliver without a grace period. After 03/14/2012 PRIORITY shipping is recommended. After 03/17/2012, OVERNITE shipping or FedEx, etc. is required.... International members need to send them to me sooner- PM for details.

    Please remember that any packages received after 03/20/2012 will be automatically returned unswapped. Any member not fulfilling commitment will not be accepted in any of my future swaps and negative feedback will be posted to members account per Moderators requirements.

    I will then sort 03/21 –03/28 and hope to mail out squares on 03/29/2012 –No later that 04/02/2012.

    Any questions please pm me. I'll be happy to assist any way I can. Happy quilting everyone!!!!

    No, not exactly...Each set is 12 of 1 pattern, so 3 sets would be 3 different fabrics. Does that make sense? 1 set is 12 count 6-1/2" squares of 1 fabric.

    To sign up:

    *~* Please E-mail me all the info below to [email protected]: *~*
    Board name:
    How many sets you're doing:
    Date when you plan ship your package by:
    E-mail address:
    Your real name:
    Your mailing address:

    *After I have received all of the info I will add you to the list of swappers and E-MAIL you a message with shipping instructions and a checklist.

    for each SET you need ONE fabric- cut it into twelve 6.5 to 7 inch sqs and stuff in a baggie with your board name, and how many sets your doing this swap...

    When you get your baggie back THEN it will be like a charm pack.. you will then in turn rec Twelve DIFFERENT fabrics ( one 6.5x6.5 sq from 12 swappers) ..

    Clear as mud?

    Sets all cut - just have to get the $$$ ready and off to the PO. At least the "crystal ball" kept the boogie man away from these sets

    Welcome to the group.

    Feel free to add to the conversations and confusion.
    We are a happy bunch of people who like to laugh and tease. We also support and encourage each other and share ideas and comments willingly. I have learned a lot from this group as well as other swaps and posts.

    PS- Don't believe everything LUV tells you about me- she made me the Rebel

    We are really starting to fill up. There are a lot of returning faces and some new ones too!!! For the returning swappers, thank you for coming back so that the swaps are a HUGE success. For the new ones...I promise we will try not to scare you away with our craziness from time to time. It is wonderful to see new names as we embark on a new swap journey. If you have any questions, please ask. Also, everyone please feel free to contribute to the conversation!!! Let us know your ideas about what you will do with your squares, what you have done in the past, etc. Hugs and love...it's gonna be a fun and wild ride!!!
