    Sign up for Valentine Post Card Swap!!

    Sign up if you'd like to join a Valentine's Day Post Card swap.

    We can do partners or I can just assign addresses. Either is fine with me. If we have an odd number I'll assign addresses. If we have even number I can do partners.

    Would be good to send me your postal address then in case we need to do random addresses instead of partners.
    If we do partners then you will exchange that info with your partner



    Sign up now til Jan 22nd
    I'll assign addresses or partners on Jan 23rd
    Mail due date is Feb 1st

    Any style of sewing -quilting
    Valentine Theme of course

    Question: Rhonda, I have made fabric note cards in the past. There is a fabric motif on the front with an embossed "Happy Valentines Day" stamped impression also on front. Blank inside, with envelope. Do these qualify? If so I would love to swap. Or if you need to see a sample, I can take a picture and then post.

    If it is something you made then yes it would be fine.

    Rhonda, then sign me up. I just need to know how many in a set or do you want a certain number?

    Goldendog55, I was in a post card group for a short time and really loved it, but I dropped out because it took so much time away from quilting. I did keep all of them, I have them stacked on a toy wrought iron chair and every once in a while I thumb through them and put a new one in front. I think they are so much fun to make.

    i know what you mean. If no one else wants to swap, that is fine with me. I have a disease that is making me sleep 16-18 hours a day, am trying to dye for the store that sells for me, and am working on a major project for a publishing company, that is due before the end of the month. If someone is really interested, I will do it, just to keep the thread going.

    I love to see what everyone's making and such and chatting about what we're working on, but am not really interested in swapping right now...just too many irons in too many fires, so why stress myself out more? But I love seeing and sharing with everyone!

    Well, kind of disappointed not to have a swap, but I do have a lot to do. However, I did get three valentines made already. I am ahead of the game on my family valentines.

    I'm still looking for more red and white or pink and white scraps so if we have at least 4 including me interested we can do another scrap swap.

    Everrose and Pollyvan if you two would like to swap post cards you're more than welcome to.

    Rhonda, are you looking for particular sizes of scraps? I've got lots of scraps I'd be happy to sort through for you but the pieces aren't terribly large. Let me know! Janice[QUOTE=Rhonda;6530646]I'm still looking for more red and white or pink and white scraps QUOTE]

    Rhonda, I don't know how the swaps work so can you tell me about how many scraps, size, I assume 100% cotton, what else? I may be interested in swapping for pink and white and maybe the red and white.

    I'll take anything any size. I will be happy to trade. I can use any scrap down to 3/4" size. I am doing several projects and one of them is crazy quilting for stuffed hearts and probably post cards. I am looking for more variety so would love to trade for whatever.

    for this swap I dont care whether it is cotton or other fabrics. I use velveteen for my hearts and I have used corduroy and other types of fabrics as long as they are red or white or pink. I will be happy to trade. As to how much that is up to you. whatever you have to send I'll try to send the same amt.

    This is the type of Valentine I am making for my Children and Grandchildren. I hope they like them. These are on a fabric base of faux suede then I layered the laces, trims, earrings, beads. etc. The photos are just printed from the computer then glued inside earrings. I actually made these to go on my Christmas tree. Will have to make some more for next years. I have the Valentine hanging on a fishing lure so will twist when hung up.

    wow such creative valentines. I wanted to share my medallion quilt along top that I am making. I am doing it scrappy. I love seeing scrappy quilts I have a difficult time making one. I hate them every time I work on it especially if you just go with what is in the bag grab one.. omg.. give me a heart attack every single time. So I have this stack a rainbow stack at that of less than f4. I know that might not be a scrap to you but it sure is to me. ahhh! so I started with yellows went to yellow orange and now this round is all reds and one orange red. I will follow next month with a purples round then a blue round and end at green. if I have my rainbow mixed up best me now. Not that a 9 yr old will care phew... so inspite key word INSPITE of being scrappy.. I kinda like it.

    Linda, make your rainbow however you want it, and however your fabric will work for you. Looks great already!
