Fat Quarter Swap

>> Monday, May 25, 2009

As I noted here, I've been thinking about a fat quarter swap and I think it's time to get one going.

The basics:
*Anyone may join this swap.
*Each person will send 1 fat quarter to 2 or 4 other people (you choose, 2 or 4 partners) and thus each person will receive 2 or 4 fat quarters.
*A fat quarter is a piece of fabric that measure 18" x 22". Take a half yard (18") of fabric, fold it in half, selvage to selvage, and cut along the fold. Voila, a fat quarter.
*Send quality fabric -- no "grandma" fabrics or anything you wouldn't want to receive.

The Nitty-Gritty:
*Sign up by emailing me: 2hippos [at] gmail.com
*Emails should include the following information:

1. Name
2. Mailing Address
3. Email Address
4. Blog Name/URL (if available) or anything you want your swap partners to know about you.
5. Number of swap partners: 2 or 4
6. Are you willing to ship internationally?
*Sign-up by June 3. At this point, I will match all the groups and then send you emails with your swap partners.
*Once I email you your swap partners, you should mail your fat quarters within 2 weeks.
*Please spread the word as the more people who sign up, the better. Feel free to grab the image above, post it on your blog, and link back to this post.
