OK, I'm in for 20 sets.

QuilterMomma 08-04-2011 07:29 AM

so let me get this right. I cut up 50 different 1.5 squares of fabric, put in a bag and that is a set? If I cut 20 of these different 50 piece bags, that is 1,000 different pieces of fabric I am sending in to get 1,000 different ones back?

Or, is it I cut 50 1.5" squares of one fabric and I can have 20 different fabrics for 20 bags? Was just wondering. I have some scraps that would be great for this because I throw nothing away and my backings are always cut larger so I have those long strips that would make good 1.5' squares to share with others. Please inform.

Yep, that's correct! :lol:

It does sound difficult doesn't it? But it's really not. Just start cutting, make 20 piles and keep adding to each pile without duplicating in each pile. It does go quickly and you can use up your scrap strips.

Just wondering how many stamps everyone needs to complete their quilt, and have you started yet?

I believe I need to swap about 7 more times, maybe 7 1/2. At this moment, all my stamps are still in the envelopes mailed back to me. I'm still not sure what pattern I'm going to use. This is definitely a work in progress.

This is my first time swapping 1.5" squares. So I am guessing I will need to swap many, many times just to get enough for a lap size quilt.

or use them to make blocks to mix with other scrappy blocks

I definitely have enough for at least a lap-size, but why stop there! I've made about 25 blocks that will finish to seven inches. Have been putting the blocks together in between all the other projects going on. You know how that goes . . . .
