We have a new swap! Chez is hosting a Fat Quarter Swap with a Different Twist. Please allow her the opportunity to post the guidelines before you post.
Guidelines will be posted October 13-15. Watch for them then! I know you will want in!
Hi everyone:I'm so excited to host this fabric swap! Here are the guidelines:
COTTON PRINT FABRIC SWAP
This is a straight-forward fabric swap that doesn't
have a deadline, or minimum or maximum number of participants. And there's no
waiting for others to send their fabrics in. Simply send in 1
to 8 yards of fabric in 1-yard cuts (note that each yard needs to be a different print), and
you will get 4 different fat quarters for each yard you send.
Opening Date: 10/13/2016
Sign Up Deadline: None! Just send me a personal message here on QCA to get
my contact information. In the message, be sure to include your real name and postal
Ending Date: It's an open-ended swap. If I decide to end the swap, I'll try
to give a minimum two-week notice and post it here.
Return package Mail Date: I'll send you fabrics back within 2 business days
of receiving your package.
Number of Participants: 1, 20, or . . . whatever! It doesn't matter. The
first participant will receive fat quarters from my own stash. As I receive
yardage from swappers, I'll cut each yard into fat quarters. So the second
participant will receive fat quarters from the first participant and from me.
The third participant will receive fat quarters from the first two swappers and
from me, and so on.
Please follow these guidelines for the swap:
Please feel free to ask additional questions if something is not clear.
First swap package received--8 gorgeous prints from Swapper #1, Cathy Wiggins. In return, Cathy was sent 32 fat quarters, including fabrics made by Moda, Riley Blake, In the Beginning, and Fabric Freedom of London (pictured here).
Who will be Swapper #2?
Do you want yardage or fat quarters or both??
Please send 1-yard cuts.
I'm asking for 1 yard cuts for two reasons: 1) it's easier to track who sent in each print, and 2) the selvage will contain information about the manufacturer so I can make sure everyone is getting quilt shop quality fabrics in return for the same.
Good question! I'll update the guidelines to clarify.
I updated the guidelines to clarify two points:
Please, don't hesitate to ask if you have questions about anything.
I am a little confused of why we send 1 yd cuts and then in return get 32 fat quarters. What is the 1 yd cut going for? Is it just an "exchange" thing?
Okay, I answered my own question. LOL It happens sometimes. I just have to ask the question and then I find it. I will participate. I will send you Fabric.
Can you email me your information to send the fabric to. My email address is email@example.com
I sent you an email with my contact information.
Apologies if the guidelines were confusing. For each yard of fabric you send, you will get 4 fat quarters in return.
I sent a friend request to you and would like to participate in the swap! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to receiving the contact / mailing information from you.
Your first post of the cut fat quarters is awesome. Love the colors!
Hi Patty, I sent a message with the contact information.
Thanks so much!
