Anyway, one swap is 100 squares, and I chose 2,1/2" squares to swap. I have to cut 100 different squares for a swap of another 100 different squares from someone else. I can send in up to 8 packages of 100 squares. And each packet has to have 100 DIFFERENT squares.. no duplicates! So I chose to do 4 packets of 100 squares each. I send out 4 packets of 100 and get back, 4 packets of 100. It will be interesting to see what others have! And a great way to utilize my scraps...and not buy new fabric! So I got out my stash of scraps... and started cutting.
This is where the scraps "start". My cutting table is right there to the left of the drawers, (top drawer is out and on the table to be gone through to cut (above)... and when I cut scraps, they go into the top 2 drawers.
I am well on my way to having the 4 sets of 100, 2,1/2" squares for the swap in March...and looking forward to those I will receive in return and getting them together for an I Spy quilt!
If you'd like to join the swap...here is where you join and can read the rules of the swap. Postage Stamp Quilt Swap March 2014.
Sign up is March 14
So the next few evenings will be spent cutting 2,1/2" squares and then waiting for March 14th for the next step!
I currently have a "postage Stamp" style quilt as a WIP...I just altered 2,1/2" color/printed squares with a white 2,1/2" square and have about half of a twin size quilt done...intention of this quilt is an outdoor quilt..at the park, beach or just the back yard. Haven't had time to work on it for about 6 months as so many other things to do instead. But maybe this summer I can get back to it...after the postage stamp challenge/swap.
