    Luck of the Irish! 2.5” ‘CANDY’ swap!!! Oh Sew Sweet! ***Closes February 14, 2014***

    Time for another swap for those who love “Candy”!

    Let’s still call it CANDY, but this swap is not the “candy” you eat. We trade 2.5" squares (another size of postage stamp) in sets of 50 different 100% cotton fabrics. Please send what you would like to receive. Limit is 15 cotton “Candy” sets per swapper.

    More CANDY news! If you choose, the “TWIST” is back. You can choose to do a ‘CANDY Twist’ of BATIKS! These will be 2.5” squares of 20 different BATIKS. Again, please, send what you would like to receive. Twist limit is 5 sets of Batiks “Candy”.

    PM me your information (Real name and address) to sign up, and let me know how many sets (and twists, if you choose) you would like to swap.

    For example:

    SheriR - 15 Cotton sets, 5 Batik twists
    Sheri R…
    1234 Quilter Road
    Quilting City, Texas 02213

    Sign-ups close February 14, 2014. Sets are due to me by February 28, 2014. I will swap them out, and get them back in the mail no later than St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2014.

    Use quality 100% cottons only! NO flannels, NO polys, NO homespun, NO eyelets. If in doubt of fiber content, leave it out!

    All sets do not need to be identical. You can use what is in your stash! Each set does need to contain the right amount of DIFFERENT squares. (50 DIFFERENT cottons and/or 20 DIFFERENT Batiks) Please double check your counts…then count again. Remember, MORE is better than less.

    MAKE SURE to trim off selvages before cutting your squares. Also try to be accurate in your cutting of the squares, so they DO measure 2.5".

    Put each set of 50 (or 20 for BATIKS) squares in its own small, snack size baggies. LABEL each baggie with your board name and state you are from. For example, my baggies will say: SheriR – Texas

    Put all your sets in a larger baggie with your board name, real name and address. This way if your envelope gets damaged the PO can return the contents to you.

    Include for me an address label with your return information so I can easily stick it on your return envelope.

    Include $5.70 for return postage. Tracking Confirmation is free when I print the labels at the USPS.com site. I will not return your swaps until I have exact postage from you to cover the charges. I WILL NOT ACCEPT PERSONAL CHECKS! You can send me A PO Money order, cash or stamps, concealed in your package which ever you prefer. (NOT metered postage as some of these expire before I can get the packages back to you.) ALSO…if you send stamps, send $6.00 worth, it costs more to mail this way. Printing from the USPS site saves money but I can’t use your stamps, I have to pay.

    Mail your swaps to me anyway you choose. If you use the PO flat rate envelopes I would reinforce the seams with tape so they’re more durable while being shipped.

    *PLEASE* I request you send TO me WITH a Confirmation/Tracking Number. This will alleviate any questions as to where your swap is.

    I will return your swapped “Candy” in a bubble padded USPS Flat Rate Envelope which I order from USPS for free.

    If your sets cost more than what you sent me, I have no choice to hold them until I get the difference. Thanks for your understanding.

    Sign-ups close February 14, 2014. Sets are due to me by February 28, 2014. I will swap them out, and get them back in the mail no later than St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2014.

    ** If you’re shipping from outside the USA, please mail 10 days earlier (February 18) to make sure I get them in time. ** Send me a PM and we can make arrangements for payment of return postage if you will have a problem acquiring US$.

    Please feel free to mail your sets early, if you wish.

    General rules for swaps: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    If you have any questions, concerns, or other "candy" swappy ideas please send me a PM.

    Happy Candy Quilting ~ SheriR

    ME! ME! ME! I wonna swap them again!! I will have to buy a bigger tote to put them in, tho. BUT, it is soo worth it!! I am in for 15 sets and 5 twists. I, too, got the 2.5" accuquilt cutter before the last swap and I LOVE IT!! What a time saver.

    yosamitesa ~ you will love it!!!!

    Can't wait to do the batiks with it.

    You ladies in the storm/snow hit areas, plz be careful & stay safe & warm. As much as I would like to get some of that snow, cuz I live in snow country, I pray that all of you stay safe.

    Since I like to live on the edge, and totally over extended on things, I think I will not pass this swap up.. I will PM you when I get home, but I will go for 20 sets. I have to see what I have in the batik section. Not sure I have 20 different.

    Ok, so I gave my 8 yrold Granddaughter (she's 9 now) some 'candy' to play with. She was picking out colors to make her MonsterHigh dolls a quilt. So she points at another pile and tells her mom, "These are for you. Didn't you need to make a baby quilt?" SO my daughter dutifully sews. "Mom!" She says. "How do you sew with such tiny pieces?" I say, "I'm suppose to sew mine?" because my daughter is better than I am, here's what she made. The quilting she did, as you can see, was very simple X's but it sure did give her baby gift a fantastic look!
