    MAY FQ SWAP : Patriotics! Red! White! Blue FQ's!!! SIGN UP CLOSES MAY 2nd.

    May Fat Quarter Swap: Patriotics! Red! White! Blue! Fat quarters!!! sign up closes May 2nd



    This month is a swap for Patriotics or patriotic colors!. If your unsure what those are please check them out on websites such as hancocks of padducah or perhaps equilter.com for great ideas.

    READ ALL THE RULES NEW NOTES THIS MONTH:

    Description: This will be a monthly swap. You will sign up each month and you can choose each month whether or not to participate. You will receive a PARTNERS name to swap with and it is up to you to trade addresses and personal information. IT is not the posters responsibility.

    Each month there will be a different theme or color that we will swap. There is a limit of two swaps per person.
    **Each person will swap 5 fat quarters that go with the theme or color of the month.
    **FQ's can be purchased or can be from your stash but they must be 100% cotton and they must measure 18 x 22 inches (standard FQ).
    **They should be 5 DIFFERENT FQ's. but coordinating fabrics are never a bad choice!

    May is Patriotic swap. I am asking you send at least 3 coordinating fabrics and two optional coordinating fabrics. this way your fat quarters have the highest likelihood of being used! There are so many exciting and wonderful color ways out there be sure to talk to your partner to make sure your working together to send something that the other person will be thrilled with.

    I don't want any hurt feelings or sad people because they did not receive but they were good enough to send. If there is trouble with this you will be held back from swapping for one month. If there is trouble again the second time you will be permanently banned from swapping. I need to keep this fair and equal to all who send on a regular basis.


    Participants are required to PM me when they have received their FQ's and are required to post a PM thanking the sender. You don't need to let me know you have mailed. But its a lovely option


    *When you send your FQ's please be sure to include your board/screen name so that people know whom to thank. THIS IS IMPORTANT we like to keep our true identies off the forum so they are not misused so please include both so you can be thanked appropriately.

    If you would like to participate please PM me with: your board name, full name and address and the number of sets you would like to do. Two set limit.

    LAST BUT NOT LEAST: Sign ups close for the 5 pm May 2nd. Names will be give out by May 4th mailing to be no later than May 10th. If your going to be late you need to PM me and also your partner so they have the courtesy of knowledge of this.

    MAILING DATE: YOU MUST MAIL by May 10th. NO LATE EXCUSES WILL BE ACCEPTED THIS TIME UNLESS THERE IS A MAJOR FAMILY EMERGENCY. Save your postage money up now! people are getting hurt feelings by these late mailings, worries they will not receive from their partner and this is absolutely not fair. Pick your fabrics before sign ups close, have them ready to mail in a preaddressed envelope and you will be set to go to make that mailing date. I will have to leave late mailing feedback if these late mailings do not stop. I do make mistakes so if you feel I left you out after I post the final listing please let me know. Make sure you include your full email and mail to information for my records with your notification. I will repost the list and if all is good send out partners. sometimes this takes a bit of time but pay attention to the sign up date and the posting date so I can fix it quick!

    Please see the rules for all board swaps and PM me with any questions. This swap has been approved by the admin.

    I'm in for 2.. I have a lot of red white blue / patriotic fabrics...
    I hope everyone sends and receives their fabrics on time this month. Not only because "Its just common courtesy..." as my dear dad used to say regarding manners...but also because Le Brat needs extra rest time with her upcoming surgery.

    I'm gonna sit the next couple out. I hate to do it, but my DH's mother has had a stroke and needs our attention. But I'll be back and watching whenever I can.

    Jvan228,
    I hate to hear that about your mil, I will keep you all in my prayers. I know the extra prayers I have received for dh and myself have made our recent "increase in trials" easier to handle.
    Regards,

    We have over a dozen signed up already! so if you know anyone who might be interested tell them come on over the fabrics are lovely!!! so sorry Maggy you will be missed and the same with Jvan. its been a tough month it seems. I am in the middle of moving (oh joy!) but hoping it will all be worth it in the end. Cute house with potential.Key word is potential. Lots of Potential lol. Least the man who owns it is going to cut the grass in the next few days so that keeps it nice looking while we scrounge around for a new USED lawn mower. one mans too small is my works great. praying its not a push mower that my man will not be happy about at all. Hey you get what you get right? sigh. easy for me to say not me doing it!

    Just sent a PM for 2 partners. I do so love this swap and love the FQ's I receive. I have never gotten an ugly one, but I use to hear about swapping "ugly fabrics." I take that back....I would say that the skull & crossbones are ugly. I just don't really care for that print of fabric.

    Its amazing what one can do with 'ugly' fabric and what it turns out looking like. Doing the blocks for quilting bee here on the board and for the swap for blocks is one truly great way to see just how a fabric turns out. Things you think are OMG I would NEVER buy that can be pretty darned good once all cut up. most fabrics. Not sure about something say with.. the hulk all over it. Probably get a hulk quilt and not so sure about that at all... ok fine some fabrics are just not going to be to your liking .. here is not the case! who doesn't LOVE patriotic fabrics???? just to show how many do love it here is a temporary list of the people I have signed up. if your name is not on it give me a holler and I can fix it lickity split!

    Brat, take a breath, and take care of you!! I will do a 2nd partner with Sheri R. Or whoever you need me to. I figure if I have my 2nd set and no partner it's like I got to pick my fabrics for me...as I will use my own 2nd set... and be my own grandma with the way my message is sounding..
    Regards all,
