I agree with 20 being too many especially with the block of the month ones, our other groups we may belong to, and our own projects we are working on.

Just my 2 cents...I love penguins I collect them but snowmen...any other I would love to do this.

Sorry to be so slow.  I read this while I was half-asleep this morning and forgot to respond until now!

I would be happy to swap if others are comfortable with me doing it.  I know I'm a relative newbie on the site (started in August), but I've been pretty active since joining and by the time this one really gets going, I will have done 4 swaps here (fall, winter, valentine's and paisley).. So... I think I've definitely got the hang of it.  If a more veteran member would like to host, then I would certainly defer, to allow everyone the ability to have someone more senior in the group host.  But I'm perfectly happy to host myself if you all are comfortable with me doing it.

 I say go for it Carolyn, get your feet wet, it is not a difficult task just one that you are committed to. I am completing my first swap as a host, and I enjoyed doing one & plan to do another.

I would prefer a layer cake swap, but will go along with whatever is decided.  Layer cake would be a little better for my budget than a FQ!

Phyllis,

You could host a layer cake swap and you could then decide what you'd like to swap. I'm sure we can have more than one swap at a time. Especially if they are different.

Ok, great!  I'd love to host a Shades of Grey swap!  Let's make it a layer cake swap with 2 fabrics for participant.  If 20 people participate, we could actually have up to 40 Shades of Grey.  lol.

This would require no more than 1.5 yards each of 2 fabrics (so no more than 3 yards total). 

I'm thinking March deadlines.

Barbara, I'm ready for you to open a thread whenever you get to it and I'll post a clear and complete set of details there.
