Welcome!

Group size: 20

Quilt Shop Quality State Fabric 10" square swap (layer cake set)

Each participant will provide two 10-inch squares per participant. With a group of 20, it would require 1.5 yards of one fabric to cut 20 10-inch squares.  You may send two of the same squares or two different squares. (If you are using the same fabric for both, it will take 2 5/6 yards- I recommend getting 3 yards just to account for wonky/off grain cuts.)  Be mindful to cut the fabric on the grain.  This is the address for cutting fabric, in case you need it. 

http://www.quiltersclubofamerica.com/groups/fabric_swaps/pages/guidelines-for-cutting-fabric.aspx

Type of Fabric: Fabrics should be 100% cotton that represent your current state or another state in which you have lived (no sports related fabrics please).  So, if your state has a fabric with its name, etc, great.  If not, look for state flowers or other specific iconic fabric related to your state.

Put two squares of your all fabric in a small clear plastic baggie and label each bag with the state represented - you can use a return address label for ease if you like. Place all baggies in one larger bag. Put a piece of paper or 3x5 card inside with my name and address on one side, and your name and address on the other. Place it inside the bag with MY address showing. This will help ensure delivery should the package be damaged during shipping. I will put the same paper or card in your return package with your information facing outwards. Please send a stamped pre-paid and self addressed envelope for your return fabric. Send me a PM letting me know when you ship your package, and the tracking number. When I send the return package out, I will send you each a PM with the tracking number of your return swap items.


Close date will be Friday, June 6 or when the swap is full, whichever comes first. 

I should receive all fabric no later than June 25.

Send me a friend invitation, along with your information: Name, state choice, physical address, screen name, phone number and e-mail address to join the group.

Let me know if you have any questions. :)

I've ordered my fabric and it should be here Friday. I'll hold off until we know exactly how many we have before I start cutting. Excited to see all the fabric from everyone!

Kristie, could you look back through the Swap Ideas pages and see who else said they were interested in being in this swap? I know there were several not listed yet.

Just sent those ladies who expressed an interest a message/friend request.  Thanks for the idea!
