I have been having so much fun with all of the swaps and quilting bees that I have joined that I thought it was time that I hosted one. I am so excited to *meet* new people here in bloggy land.
It has been so weather crazy here in California. One minute it is raining and cold and the next it is 80 degrees outside! The weather is teasing me with Spring. It really needs to pick a season and stick with it. So in honor of the weather I have decided to call this swap:
Everyone is welcome in this swap, if you would prefer to not ship yours internationally let me know and I will match you up with someone from your neck of the woods. Everyone will send out 2 Fat Quarters of fabric that is GORGEOUS and makes you wish for spring.
If you need to know what a Fat Quarter is then I will tell you. A lady at my Quilt shop said it best:
A Fat Quarter is a 1/2 of a yard cut on the fold so that you have 2 pieces of fabric and each of them is a Fat Quarter. Therefor 2 Fat Quarters = 1/2 yard of fabric.
I like how she put it, it totally made since to me and I GOT it. Before that I did not GET it. I hope that helps, if not check out this site for measurements.
Please do not send anything that I like to call "Grandma Fabrics". Everyone loves to get nice Gorgeous fabrics so please don't send anything that you would not like to receive yourself. Also a note to pass along the bloggy love, I don't know about you but I love to find new great blogs! Of course, you are welcome to send anything else that you desire (Chocolate anyone?). It is all about having fun and waiting impatiently (or is that just me?) for your package to arrive and see what is inside.
I will keep this open for a week (so you have until Feb. 11 to sign up) and then match everyone up with their partners. Here is how it works:
- Please leave a comment on this post letting me know that you would like to join in.
- Then email me with your mailing address. Darcisews@gmail.com
- PLEASE post about this on your blog to get as many people as possible to join us!
