Nancy, sorry you are having trouble with the rules.  The general rule for my swaps are no holiday or novelty fabric unless specified since not everyone likes them.  Under the theme area for this particular swap, I specified that the theme was patriotic fabric so holiday and novelty fabrics that pertain to this theme are acceptable.  No editing of the general rules required.  I think Bridget and possibly another lady, Laura, are thinking of doing another type of swap so maybe they will do something you can get excited about. 

I have never been interested in patriotic fabric either but due to the timing of this swap thought it would be fun to branch out and try something new.  The fabrics I have been receiving from everyone are wonderful and I am really glad I chose this theme. 


Looking forward to the next swap, especially if it is something other than FQs.  Push me out of my comfort zone a little.

I'm having trouble understanding this swap.  The rules that I downloaded say something about no holiday or novelty fabrics unless specified.  AND...I don't see that specified.  Did I miss something in the rules for this swap.


I'm really not interested in patriotic fabrics, as I think this swap is, but it really needs to be clear to all of us in the rules.  They need to change based on the details of this specific swap.  Please don't just copy someone else's rules if you don't mean it for this actual swap!   EDIT THEM  (I'm really picky about this, obviously.)

Well then what could it be.  You know about a week or so ago there was a blog (about 12 of them) all about viagra and other medications.  I emailed AQS and they took care of it immediately.  So yes I think the next step is to write to them.  Just go to quilters and type them in (I think that is what I did).  Good Luck Garnie!

Laura, so far there have been two.  Diana did the first one and I was not involved so I don't know what the rules were.  Maybe someone who participated (Bridget) can help out with how that one was run.  The second swap is in process and the rules for it are in the discussion forum.  I think anyone can start a swap (right, Diana?).  You just need to post the rules as a separate topic in the discussion forum.  You could then send an invite to all the group members so everyone knows about it.  I don't know that everyone gets noifications in their email of updates to this site.  As Bridget has stated in earlier posts, this group isn't just for FQ swaps.  A swap can be anything folks want to participate in.

Covering yourself with friendship; that makes me re-think the block idea! 
Comment by Barbara S on June 17, 2011 at 7:32pm
Patricia-that sounds like fun to me. I love the explanation of covering yourself with friendship.

I've been involved w/ block swaps and they can be fun but as I've said before not everyone has the same ruler-8" varies-though it shouldn't.

Two years ago in my quilt guild I ran a 9 patch block exchange.  It kind of fizzled out because not all were considerate and gave in sloppy blocks-but I kind of think that wouldn't happen here.  I know that I am much more fussy if it is going to someone else.  And w/ all my 9 patches I made a few comfort quilts to give away.  And then of course is the idea that when you cover yourself with a quilt of exchanged blocks you are really covering yourself w/ friendship.

I'm not sure when I will volunteer-maybe August or September if its open and I know already what kind of fabric I want to swap.

As far as a block swap goes, I don't have a clue!  Diana mentioned that she's had fun with those in the past.  I personally don't want anyone elses blocks in my quilt, but she said it's fun to do just that.  Probably something fast and easy...it was just an idea since Diana mentioned the idea of swapping is for all kinds of swaps and not just fat quarters.  Also, that anyone could call a swap at any time; having a few going on at once so if you don't want to do one you can do another.

Welcome.  If you want to participate in the June FQ Swap, just go to the first discussion in the "Discussion Forum" tilted June Fat Quarter Swap.  It has a link to a MSWord document with all the guidelines.  The theme is patriotic fabric and the deadline is July 1.  I am really getting some fabulous fabrics to swap.  I think I like this hosting thing coz I get to see so many fun fabrics.
