    November's 6-1/2" square I-Spy Swap

    November’s swap theme is “I-SPY” gender neutral 6-1/2” squares, up to 6 sets. We will be doing a noodle twist this month…see information below!!!

    Registration is open to the first 156 Sets or until November 13th, whichever comes first. I would like to have these in hand no later than 11/21/2012. 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 can be used in an I-Spy quilt for a boy or a girl. Please be creative and think outside the box, have FUN!!! *(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) more than 6 sets will fit in the legal sized or padded flat rate envelopes.

    ** Write your screen name ON your baggies along with SET amounts AND TWIST AMOUNTS. For example, if I wanted to do 4 sets and 2 twists, I would write YosamitesaX4 + 2 TWISTS 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...

    ** ALSO INCLUDE YOUR REAL NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS ON EACH BAGGIE***NEW REQUIREMENT!!! Should your envelope be swallowed by the USPS machines, they can get the fabric back to you.
    ** 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. (See picture)
    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). (See picture)
    ~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).
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Now for the TWIST!!!
    The twist theme will be NEUTRALS – any NEUTRALS as long as it “reads” neutral -- NO homespun or broadcloth!!!
    ~ ONE 2-1/2” x WOF strip from FIVE different NEUTRAL fabrics in each set.
    ~ 2-1/2” strips must be from 100% unwashed cotton fabrics
    ~ Please cut carefully - NO ‘V cuts at the folds …
    *** Place all five 2-1/2” x WOF in a SANDWICH size baggie- FLAT and staggered so I can count them.
    *** Label EACH SANDWICH baggie with your board name and twist amount. i.e. Yosamitesa x2 Twists
    *** Max SIX (6) twists per member
    *** This TWIST is optional - Not mandatory to participate in the twist to join this swap, however you must be in the swap to participate in the twists.***

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

    I would like to have these in hand no later than 11/21/2012. A post mark no later than 11/14/2012 should give the USPS ample time to deliver without a grace period. After 11/14/2012 PRIORITY (Flat Rate) shipping is recommended. After 11/18/2012, 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 11/21/2012 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 11/21 –11/28 (minus family time for Thanksgiving) and hope to mail out squares on 11/30/2012 –No later that 12/07/2012

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

    Hey ladies!!! Sorry about last night, it was hubby's birthday and he was a lil needy last night. He didn't feel good (migraine came on) and then I got one too. Lil man did NOT want to go to bed, however...he slept in his "pretty panties" as he calls them, ALL NIGHT LONG!!! No accidents!!!! WOO HOO!!! For those that don't know, I have a 2-1/2 year old lil man who keeps me on my toes!!! Literally now since we are potty training!

    Oh I so do remember those!!! They actually have "apps" of Find Waldo. They are CRAZY...the books were better. Also, if you watch Big Bang Theory, they had an episode where they played Find Waldo without glasses on. It was SO funny!!!

    December is NOTHING. I take December to be with family. Besides, it gets too crazy with the holidays and mail to try to swap. We will be back in FULL force in January, however next year is going to change some. I will only be hosting 4 swaps instead of 11. I'm having a really hard time getting them done and with everything else in life, I have to cut back. Also, will help a lot save on money for shipping, etc. January-March will be Transportation - anything that transports you, needed for transportation, etc. i.e. cars, planes, trains, boats, wheels, roads, water, air, etc. Be as CREATIVE as you can.

    Duh!!! You thought I would slack??? HA HA HA HA!!! Well, I actually thought about waiting until today to post, but figured I'd have a lot of hate mail by morning.

    HAPPY NOVEMBER y'all!!!
