LuvTooQuilt is hosting another swap!!! …….10 1/2" layer cake RED Swap..

REDS, REDS, and more REDS…(With a twist) ~ “You will put your heart in it!!!”

Registration is open to the first 130 Sets or until 16 Feb, whichever comes first.

Each swapper will submit 12 squares of any 1 (one) UN-washed 100% RED cotton fabric. Fabric must be RED but not limited to all red, it can be red & white or red and anything… However fabric MUST have red in it (but not limited to: Calicos, Batiks, solids, Oriental, novelty, seasonal...) You will in return receive 12 DIFFERENT squares per set submitted. Perfect for stash building and scrappy quilts!!

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 squares that are not square, or those that are not the right size, will be returned unswapped. Will accept any squares larger than 10 ¼ as most of us will use them as 10 inch squares. Anything less than MY 10 ¼ 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... please nothing over 10 ¾ as they become hard to put in baggies..

Here’s how it works:

In your packet to me you will enclose:
1 gallon size ziplock bag with 12 ct – 10 1/2 inch squares of ONE fabric for each set

~ Fabric must be UN -washed, ironed and in ziplock bags for safe passage thru USPS.
~ Please remember that each set should 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 inch squares.
~ There is a FIVE SET limit in this swap plus ONE optional twist
~ INCLUDE your screen name ON your baggies along with SET amounts.
***Example- I would like to do 4 (four) sets - ((4 sets mean that you would send 12 ct – 10 1/2inch squares from FOUR different fabrics for a total of 48 squares, each set in separate gallon size Ziploc bags)) so, written legibly with a sharpie marker or pen, on each of my Ziploc bags will have:

luvTooQuilt X4

~ 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.?. )
~ Please staple/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 pic)

Also in your package INCLUDE Sample pieces of each of your fabric – ( aprox 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

Also in your package INCLUDE a self adhesive return address label, and return priority postage. ($4.95) Should you require delivery confirmation- highly recommended!!! - An additional $.70 is required. 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. Do not mail the return envelopes, postage only please!!! Too hard to keep track of the envelopes.... (PM me for international info)

I would like to have these in hand no later than 2/23/2011(so with a post mark no later than 2/17/2011 that should give the USPS ample time to deliver them with NO grace period.) After 2/17, OVERNITE shipping is required. This is a short month- no leeway available... International members need to send them to me sooner- PM for details

Please remember that any packages received after 2/24/2011 will be automatically returned unswapped. Any member not fulfilling commitment will not be accepted in future swaps.

I will then sort 2/24-2/27 and hope to mail out squares on 2/28/2011(but no later than 3/1/2011)

@@@@@ Please PM me all the info below: @@@@@

Board name,
How many sets you're doing
Date when you plan ship your package
Your real name
Your mailing address

@@ After all info has been rec’d & you have been approved I will add you to the list of swappers... @@
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@


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


AND THE TWIST………….. ‘Put your HEART in it’

~ ONE 10.5in sqs from 5 (Five) different 100% cotton UN-washed heart fabric

Each member is allowed ONE set of the twist. This is something new I will try and if it flops then, it will have been a learning experience. Members who choose to participate will rotary cut ONE -10.5 square of 5 different fabrics- Fabric MUST have a heart(s) on it somewhere-No specific color requirement, you will then mail them all in ONE gallon sized bag.--- NO NAMED--- I will then swap bag for bag –Squares will not be removed from the Ziploc. You will in return get 5 DIFFERENT heart squares from another member of this swap..

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

Now...did you have any doubts!!? Nahhhh.... :thumbup:

oldmountaincrafts 02-03-2011 05:04 AM

OK, what the heck. I couldn't screw this up, right?? I'm in for 3 sets. I'm assuming, but please correct me since this is my first time doing this, that this is for "true red", not variations of red like a dark pink or a light burgandy?

Thanks and please be easy on the newbie!!!

sew scrappy 02-03-2011 09:20 AM

I'm in for four sets plus the twist. What fun!

KarenBarnes 02-03-2011 10:09 AM

Have we got the go ahead? Want to stay on top of this! I'll stay with 2 sets and the twist.

Yes this is for TRUE REDS ONLY..

Fire engine red.. cherry red. Hot lips red.. Cinnamon red hot reds.. TRUE reds

HOWEVER it may have a true red with white.. a true red with blue.. or a true red with any colors... It just has to have true red color in it.. now a red burgundy is fine but light pink does not qualify.. Use your best judgment.. If it looks 'red' to you it should be fine...

** please PM with the required info if you would like to join this swap..

cctx. 02-03-2011 11:59 AM

Sign me up for 2 sets. I had mentioned doing 1 set, but will do the 2 sets of Reds.
No twist swap though.

Thanks!

sewwhat85 02-03-2011 01:36 PM

how fun

texasgirl 02-03-2011 05:43 PM

would love to join the swap sending 2 sets and the twist. this will be my first swap. Look forward to doing this.

rainagade 02-03-2011 07:39 PM

I was out today and picked up a red/white just for this swap. I'm in! look for my pm.

I went to Hobby Lobby but didn't have anything likeable. I did get a red with daisys shadowed in...I was going to get a red and white stripped but it was to expensive and to thin. I'm waiting to get to Hancocks or JoAnns.

rainagade 02-03-2011 07:53 PM

I have a couple GOOOD quilt shops I shop. they will not let me down. I had to stop at one today....it was hard to walk out with just one. I will be at the other one this weekend.

I am careful when I am at Joanns. Other than that I shop online if I know the fabric line. I have a project in mind for the red/whites. Last year I did a black/white BOM it really turned out nice.

Momma_K 02-03-2011 08:14 PM

There is a small QS in our next town where my daughter lives. I think I'll go there this weekend also. She's small but has loads of shelves packed full! I bought some black and white a couple weeks ago, very nice!! Keeping it for something special!

How is Jess doing?? And the rest of the fam??

SewExtremeSeams 02-03-2011 10:10 PM

Hmmm... I am seriously going to sleep on it and let you know in the morning. I really like it that you are asking for true reds. Looks like a fun swap! :-D

luvTooQuilt 02-03-2011 10:16 PM

True reds are really in the eye of the beholder so hopefully We all see the same red!! lol.. But you never know, someone might go rogue on us and send a Rouge then Im sure we will all see red!!! .. lol..

Hee hee.. I see Momma_k doin something sneaky like that.. !!!! lol..

Momma_K 02-03-2011 10:18 PM

Renee my other daughter spoke to her today, she says she's bored out of her mind, still sore and can't move her neck but so far, and wants to get up and do something but can hardly roll over enough to cut the cheese!! The kids are here in Soddy with me and her sister, we may have to take little Mary in to the Dr tomorrow. She's complaining of hurting and her arms are swelling now. I told Renee if it's not down by in the morning to come by and get me and we're taking her to the ER. Not sure if it's realated to the accident or not but we're playing it safe just in case. Jackie is fine but still doen't have the use of her left arm yet, so she has to go to a pediactric orthopedist as soon as I can get her in. It's all ongoing but like I said, it could had been a lot worse, so thankful it wasn't.

Thanks for asking LUV! :mrgreen:

Geez, did they give Jess pain meds or muscle relaxers?? They have some good stuff these days.. I know.. :thumbup: I slipped on slippery stairs, man was I loopy on the relaxers.. :shock: and yes Keep an eye on Mary - swelling doesn't sound good.. and hopefully Jackies lack of movement is just soreness and nothing severe..

Keep us posted..

Charming 02-03-2011 10:31 PM

Hi Luvtooquilt,

Yeah they gave her Lortabs 10mg. I reckon they're good. She'll cut them in half for during the day and maybe a whole one at night. But she's trying to cut herself off from them for fear of getting addicted. I remember when I fell off Mom back porch and tore up my knee, I learned to LOVE Demoral! I fell asleep setting up on the bedpan!! Ha! They don't give that anymore, says it's strong enough but doesn't last long at all. But I'm like Elvis, give me a Demoral and a Jelly Donut and I'll be fine! :thumbup: :XD:
