    Thanks ladies! I mailed a couple of packages the other day and used the USPS.com site to print postage and label. It was so easy and free delivery confirmation. The padded envelope cost me $5.10. I'll use this method for shipping candy back to all y'all for sure!!

    Darn, just when I thought I was on top of things...I forgot about the postage increase. Sorry SheriR, I'll have to send additional postage for my return package. I'll get it in the mail tomorrow.


    P.S. I mailed my package Saturday.

    All the candy is in nice, neat stacks in their little bags. Will mail tomorrow. Before I try to straighten and organize my sewing "mess", will you do this swap again soon. If so, I may as well continue cutting the main "candy" variety and organize later.

    Mary Ellen Brace OH, by the way, I just did the 15 sets and did NOT include any Holiday or Batik.

    Quiltinghere, yes yes you have time to cut still! I've still got to do my Holiday....

    Twisted, PM me about your postage. I've got padded envelopes and plan on making my labels and printing shipping off the USPS site. It will cost $5.10. Free delivery confirmation. Some ladies sent $6 or more and will be receiving money back from me.

    Marybrace, I am hopping I can continue hosting these candy swaps. I'm thinking the next one will be March/April/May.

    Also, I wanted to share pics of what I've made with some of my "candy". All were Christmas gifts, I still need to make one for me. Thank you to CountryHouseQuilter who gave me the idea. I believe I was checking out her blog ans saw pics of here making some with her friends? THANKS again CHQ! The bags are Midi-Mondo bags from www.quiltsmart.com. They also have a larger tote (Mondo). Super easy, super fun, super cute and well received by their recipients.

    Happy quilting ladies!

    Hey SheriR - glad you checked out my blog and saw the Mondo Bags. I love mine. I have one done in batiks for Spring, one in all fall/halloween squares for my favorite time of the year, and one done in purple/gold/black/Ravens fabric for my favorite football team!!! I've made several others and sold them as they are awesome bags!!!! That's why I wanted to do this swap. I need more 2 1/2" squares for my stash!!!!

    I'm mailing mine out to you on Friday. Can't wait to see what I get back!!!!! I' sooooo excited!!!!

    Here's an idea from Jenny at Missouri Star Quilt Co. that I had not seen before. It looks like a great way to use 2.5 inch squares!

    I have offically lost my mind and am now buying fat quarters just because they will cut up into 2.5 inch squares nicely.

    Me too.

    Good thing we get to trade soon. And as for next time....I was actually thinking of a "neutral" twist.

    I am really lacking in neutral 2.5" variety. It would be great to swap neutrals with the group to add to my stash.

    Mine were mailed on Friday. You should get them maybe tomorrow!!!! I'm getting really excited now, as I have all sorts of ideas spinning in my head for what to do with all this "candy" I'll have coming my way. I know I need to make myself a couple new bags, so that might be what I work on. And my Mom wants a new bag too. But I've got a couple other ideas up my sleeve. We shall see

    Well, it's good to know I'll have friends when I get sent to 2.5 inch rehab!

    A neutral twist could be good. Off white, muslin, what are you thinking?

    In thinking white, off white(cream), white on white, cream on cream. What would all y'all use? Would you use any with color. Say it READS white or cream?

    Thanks for the info Sheri. I actually bought a few neutrals yesterday just because I thought the were pretty. When I cut them up, I'll toss them into a different box for a potential twist on the next swap.

    I would say anything that looks white, off white, almost white.
