Fluffy Sheep Quilting Rainbow Charm Swap
I have several scrappy quilt ideas brewing in my mind, so I was wondering if any of you are up for a rainbow charm swap?
Here's the idea:
Sign ups will be held for 1 week starting today (25 March to 1 April 2013). I would like to get 28 interested folks, but if I hear from 56 of you I am open to a larger swap.
Once all of the spots are filled, each person will be assigned one color. You are to run off and look for a print that is predominately that color. If there are 28 of you, you are buying 1 yard of fabric. If there are 56 in the swap, then 2 yards of fabric. We are looking for modern prints, not solids. Be sure that the print you are choosing is of a reasonable scale to be cut into charms. Fabrics must be 100% cotton of high quality - no cheap-o prints that will bleed everywhere, please.
When you choose your fabric, please upload a photo to the flickr group. To ensure no duplicates, be sure to check what others have uploaded before you buy your fabric.
Being a Fluffy Sheep Quilting sponsored swap, a 10% discount is offered on any fabrics purchased from the shop. I'll send out a discount code in the email with your color assignment. If you buy from FSQ, I'll also cut the charms for you AND you won't have to pay shipping. Oh, the happiness!
Get your fabrics over to the Fluffy Sheep household by 6 May 2013 pre-cut into pretty little charm squares. Include in your parcel a pre-addressed return envelope. No return envelope, no returned charms. Be sure you press your fabric before cutting. Here's a great tute if you've never cut charm squares before.
I will return charm packs to you the week after (13 May 2013), assuming all of your charms arrive on time. This swap will be open to international folks. When shipping comes around, I will ask you to send (via paypal) to me the cost of your shipping. I will not be invoicing you, but requesting you send the payment directly to me by email.
Let's get swapping, ladies!
PS - Please do spread the word on your blogs. A button will follow, but until then feel free to just swipe the photo above to use in your posts...
