    March is BOLD and BRIGHT Layer cake swap!!!!.... With a BLACK twist..


    March is BOLD and BRIGHT !!!!!!!!!! With a black twist..


    Swap open for registration until March 20th or until 130 sets filled, whichever comes first.....

    Each swapper will submit 12 squares of 1 (one) UN-washed 100% cotton ANY colored quality quilting fabric that are sun-glass wearing BRIGHT color or colors (think fushia, hot pink, neon green, etc..... (no flannel, no homespun, no eyelets, and no broadcloth ). Please be courteous, and keep in mind, send what you would like to receive in return ~~<<[email protected]

    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 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 would like /require assistance in cutting please contact me.- Ill need these fabrics sooner.. )

    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 8 TWIST(s) MAX

    ~ INCLUDE your screen name ON your baggies along with SET amounts. *Example- I would like to do 4 (four) sets and a twist - ((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)

    ~ Please staple a piece of your fabric on the outside of the baggie...A selvage piece with manufacture name of your fabric would be sufficient- not mandatory- stapled on the outside of the individual baggie for identification purposes.



    ~ 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.?. )

    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 may be over 100 sets


    Also in your package INCLUDE in a sandwich baggie: a self-adhesive return address label, and return priority postage - Tracking is now included in all FRE packages.. ($5.95 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 29th of the swap Month - should it fall on a holiday, Saturday or Sunday- or NO 29th in the month, it must be received in hand the previous business day.
    So with a post mark no later than the 1st that should give the USPS ample time to deliver via parcel post with a few days grace period. By the 5th PRIORITY is recommended. After the 7th, Mandatory OVERNITE shipping is required.... International members need to send them to me sooner- PM for details

    Please remember that any packages received the 30th or after 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 when all rec'd and hope to mail out squares No later than the 10th of the following month

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

    AND THE TWIST…………..Charms !!!!!

    March's theme is: BLACKS
    Any 100% unwashed cotton fabrics that contain more than 60% black in color.


    Here’s how it works:
    ~Cut ONE 5x5 from 10 DIFFERENT 100% quality Cotton fabrics –no flannel, homespun, eyelet, see thru fabrics- When in doubt, leave it out!.
    ~Place the 10 different fabric sqs in a ziplock SANDWICH baggie for safe transport thru the USPS. (Ten DIFFERENT 5x5 sqs = ONE Twist)
    ~ there is a EIGHT twist limit- all baggies cannot contain the SAME fabrics so mix them up- you may use the same fabric up to four baggies but the baggies MUST not have duplicates of themselves or be identical to other submitted baggies..
    ~Label the baggie with your Board Name and the total count of TWISTS you are participating in..

    LuvTooQuilt x 8 Twists


    *** This TWIST is optional - Not mandatory to participate in the twist to join this swap ***

    I am looking out my window and hardly see the neighbors because of the @#$% snow. Everything I can see is either white, gray or brown. YUCK! I need something bright and pretty to look at right NOW. Maybe it's time to get some of that fabric with the neon flip flops.

    When I was looking for more people to join the pincushion swap I put together pictures from the last couple of swaps and posted it in the pictures forum. I thought it might give people ideas, and catch the eye of people who don't usually look at swaps. We did get a few brand new swappers.

    We cant 'advertise' .....
    this is the PM I got from the moderator QuiltNnan:

    " i did not change any words to my own. i only removed the words pointing to another thread. you already 'advertise' your swaps in your signature... and quite loudly, i might add. members are not supposed to 'advertise' their other threads within a post to get more interest. members who are interested in swaps will go to the swaps forum to find a swap they want to participate in."


    i posted this with a picture of what i made with my scraps. she removed all whats in bold.. and sent me the above pm.. . :


    " I have been organizing my scraps.. My goal is use up the scraps before i cut into yardage or bolts.. so far so good.. Well anywhoo, I host swaps.. 10.5 swaps to be exact. And ive been hosting for years... I did take a sabbatical for a while but im back up and running ( so if anyone needs to add to their stash hit me up and i can add ya to our swaps )"

    I am in. Bold and Brights are good to have on hand and there are just way too many fun patterns to use these squares in.

    Hi - I got a note from a friend on the board who knows my fabric choices that you needed another person for this swap - I might have to order some fabric, but bold and brights are my favorites!
