Default Closed -January's I LOVE SWEET TREATS 6-1/2" squares Swap is full !!!

January’s swap theme is “I LOVE Sweet Treats”!!! 6-1/2” squares, up to 6 sets.

Registration is open to the first 156 Sets or until January 13th, whichever comes first.

***There are some changes this time, so please read ALL of the directions before signing-up!!!***

Each swapper will submit 12 count of size 6-1/2” squares of any 1 UN-WASHED 100% cotton fabric per set that encompass SWEET TREATS or LOVE…such as chocolates, flowers, hearts, cupcakes, Valentine’s Day, etc. This is open to your interpretation. *(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. Make sure you completely CUT OFF SELVAGE ENDS. Select fabrics that will hold up to a lot of love, wear, and tear as well as washing. 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 or the right size, those with the selvage edge still attached, not 100% cotton or those that are deemed unusable by me will be returned unswapped, no questions asked.

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. If you are fussy cutting, you will need to get extra.

Due to the message constraints with the new private message (PM) system, 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 E-mail me all the info below: *~*~*
Board name:
How many sets you're doing:
Date when you plan ship your package by:
Your real name:
E-mail address:
Your mailing address:

*After I have received all of the info I will add you to the list of swappers and send you a message with shipping instructions and a checklist.

This swap was approved by PatriceJ. Click the following link for general swap rules. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

Here’s how it works: - In your packet (flat rate envelopes work great and will hold up to 6 sets beautifully) to me you will enclose:

** 1 quart size (Hefty/Ziploc) slider bag with 12 count – 6-1/2” squares of ONE fabric for each set. Fabric must be UNWASHED, ironed and in quart size bags for safe passage thru USPS. *Please remember that each set should be cut from a DIFFERENT unwashed fabric and in SEPARATE baggies.

** Write your screen name ON your baggies along with SET amounts. For example, if I wanted to do 4 sets (i.e. 12 – 6-1/2” squares of 4 DIFFERENT fabrics), I would write YosamitesaX4 on the bag in a Sharpie or pen that will not rub off or on a label attached to the baggie.

** Please staple 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)

[ATTACH=CONFIG]300002[/ATTACH]

** Include sample pieces of each of your fabric 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 100 sets and a toddler who gets into EVERYTHING!

[ATTACH=CONFIG]300003[/ATTACH]

** Also in your package include a self-adhesive return address label, and return priority postage of $6.00 (this will include delivery confirmation) – DO NOT SEND YOUR OWN ENVELOPES. I will be putting delivery confirmation on EVERY package. With the price increase January 22nd, $6.00 will cover the cost to ship the package with delivery confirmation. 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.

I would like to have these in hand no later than 01/20/2012. A post mark no later than 01/14/2012 should give the USPS ample time to deliver without a grace period. After 01/14/2012 PRIORITY shipping is recommended. After 01/18/2012, 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 01/20/2012 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 01/21 –01/29 and hope to mail out squares on 01/30/2012 –No later that 02/01/2012.

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