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!

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.

This group looks fun - how do I get started??

Comment by Suzanne Montgomery on June 17, 2011 at 2:21am

Bridget, what kind of a block swap did you have in mind?  A specific block for everyone or more free-for-all?


Comment by Patricia Loquet on June 15, 2011 at 5:52pm


Silly me.  I didn't buy any of those fabrics for myself-and I liked them (or I wouldn't have sent them of course.)

Comment by Patricia Loquet on June 15, 2011 at 5:51pm

So good to hear from you Diana.  Hope you feel better real quick.

Don't worry about me missing the first swap.  I'm sure that there will be many others and I did do June's so looking forward to getting my surprise from Suzanne who jumped right in.  Good for her.

I talk about you to my NY friends as if we spend time together and I feel the same way.  I have always wanted a quilting pen pal and now I have so many of you to call pen pals and friends.  Thank you AQS for letting this happen.

By the way-we have low 80's today, sunny as all get out and NO humidity-in other words a perfect summer day.  And I was at my comfort quilt group so all in all a pretty perfect day so far.

May it be so for all of you.
