Here's how it works.
You will dmail me your preference for colors. I will pair each of you up with a buddy who chooses the same or similar color preferences.
I will tell you which goes first, and you will then send your buddy 12 fat quarters that coordinate in their color preference. When they receive their fat quarters, they will in turn send you 12 coordinating fat quarters, not duplicating any of the prints you sent her.
If you go buy a half yard of fabric, and send your buddy half of that half yard (cut at the fold), and keep the other half for yourself... and your buddy does the same... then in the end you'll have 24 different prints, and enough fabric to make the top for a wonderful lap quilt.
1. All fabrics must be 100% cotton. No poly/cotton blends, please.
2. Should you not be able to meet the deadlines for mailing, please let your buddy know... it's just the courteous thing to do.
3, We want to see pictures of all the fat quarters together... so the 2nd buddy of each pair should post a pic of their new stash.
I will begin taking names today, and will close to new participants on January 18th (next Sunday)... the first buddy will send her fat quarters by January 31st.
Let the games begin.
This swap is closed to new participants.
I WILL HOST FAT QUARTER SWAPS ON A QUARTERLY BASIS. WATCH FOR THE NEXT ONE AROUND THE MIDDLE OF APRIL.

Good to see you all here... I'll update again this evening... thanks.
Well, of course I'm in. Have to feed the demon you know! Now I have to come up with colors!
One more addict checking in. Colors--Surprise me!! Haven't met a color I didn't like so far.
I'll bite .... I know better in the middle of wedding planning but can't help myself!
BJ, can I request to be in the first round this time?
Yup, Debra... you sure can... and I'll do my best to fulfill that request.
Thank you! That will help me not get into a time crunch as we get closer to the wedding.
Are we suppose to list colors here or dmail you?
Welcome all... I'll update the list shortly.
List them on a dmail to me, please... cause it's a secret at this point.
Good Morning Ladies !!!
I'm going missing for a couple days, but fear not... I'll be back here to update the list as soon as I can...
Of course, the colors we choose, can have anything else that coordinates with them! JMO!!
My brain is dead today Audrey, explain "can have anything else that coordinates with them" please.
colors, Marion, colors!!! Anything that will work with as in contrast, or blend in!
Oh, okay. I just assumed that was a "given". Shows how my brain is working today. Just one to many calls from vendors with imaginary problems.
I would love to be on this for my first time.
Yippee, we got a new sewer!
Welcome to the group.
Bj will be back in day or so, and will get your name on top.
Make sure you send her a d mail with your color choices.
I have d-mailed my colors and am so grateful for the welcome. I'm sure this is going to be a really FUN time.
Thank you all
Fantastic you made it Quilter5dbsr. I am sure you will like this and we are going to love having you with us and getting to know you better.
Marion aka Maid M.
ok ok ok let me in. I love the fabric. Do we have a theme or just colors.
I think it is just colors. Welcome to the swap, and give Bj, some time to get her foreign exchange student settled in, and she will add you to the list. D mail her your colors you prefer.
ha ha ha I called her and twisted her arm to get in LOL.
Yeah more like twisted my ear. hahaha. didn't take much twisting. I love the fabric.
Whew... what a run I've had today... busy busy busy...
If you ladies don't mind... I'll update the list above tomorrow... I'm so bushed, I am almost too tired to get a shower... but if I don't, I'll just smell myself stink all night...
Welcome all my new quilters... it's really good to see you here...
poof... I'm gone for the night.
...and so the fun continues for the Fabriholics Anonymous.
LOL, MArion, I love that name! ^_^
Can't wait to get our names...
2nd Friday of each month. First to Marions house, then to mine...
Wouldn't that be fun?
Hmmmm, that doesn't work for me. I have quilting classes on Fridays. LOL!
Yup, that is right. You will be issued a real membership card too!! After the wedding then we meet at Debras.
Okay we change it--just not the second Thursday as I have garden festival committee meetings from now til March 20th.
Hey, I have an idea. Why don't you all COME to the wedding!
