    Round 7 Rules

    Welcome back to all of our previous players and a big welcome to any new members. For this swap we are doing players choice for fabric selection. That means you can select any fabric(s) you want, just remember there should be a dark and a light side. This one will be truly scrappy!

    Each member can send as few as 2 and as many as 6 of the completed Laundry Basket Quilt HST papers (each paper makes 28 HSTs). You will then receive the same number of HST's in return. We are increasing the number to 6 as we skipped the last quarter so folks could work on holiday projects.

    For the new folks, for each paper, you will need a 6 1/2 X 22" piece of light fabric and another of dark fabric As before, let's not use any solid colors for this swap but instead use prints or a color on color pattern. You will sew per the directions and cut them out but do not iron open or tear off the paper. You can sign the paper if you chose when you send them in (folks commented on how nice it was to know who did the squares the last swap)

    Each set of 28 should be placed in a separate zip lock bag and be mailed to me. So for every member, I should receive between 2 to 6 bags depending on how many of the sheets you decide to swap. Once I receive them all, I will break them down and mail back to you the same number of HSTs as you mailed in.

    Please make no more than 2 sets of any fabric so the results are truly scrappy.

    There is a video that explains this a little better than I probably am. Take a look at the swap 4 rules for a link to the video.

    For our returning players, you will need to purchase your own papers. Also, if you could either send me a PM or reply to this thread and let me know you are going to play this round - that will allow me to know who to expect papers from. If you mailing address has changed, please let me know.

    For any new folks, please send me a PM with your name and mailing address. In the past round, I offered to send new folks 2 of the papers so they had an opportunity to try this once and see if it was something they were interested in doing again. That offer is still open so let me know if you want the papers. If you are interested in swapping more than 2 sets, you will need to purchase your own papers.

    Deadline for mailing HSTs this swap is March 1st. You can find my address in my user notes. Please include $3 with your HSTs to cover the return shipping costs.

    Feel free to ask any questions here or PM me. Happy scrappy fun!

    Have read the rules and accept. I can't wait to see what this round brings. Thank you for all your time and effort in doing this. You have done a terrific job in 2016 and I know it will be terrific in 2017. Thank you so much it is such great fun.

                Please, is anyone able to tell me how much it'll be to mail 6 HST sets from USA to Canada... so I can send the correct postage payment?

                    I'm in again, too.

                      6 sets done, ready to ship Monday.


                        I'm in again!


                          I'm in. I've ordered my papers and bought some gorgeous fabrics. I'm in England so the postage is a problem. I've got no dollars, and I went to the bank today and the smallest note they do is 100$ so I've bid on some on ebay. I'm very excited about this swap and any excuse to start a new quilt and obtain some little bits of different fabrics. As if I don't have enough on the go!

                          Ah! Time for a cup of tea and to read about a castle (Gwydir Castle in Wales is my latest castle romance. I stayed nearby at Ty Capel in Rhiwiddolion - google it. If you're not Welsh you pronounce it Rid - oh- lee-on)


                            Thank you for the reminder that I forgot to respond! Yes I am interested. I will have 4 -6 done by the end of February, I have 3 already.

                            Thanks again!

                            1. Bring a smile to someone else's face
                            2. Make them wonder what you are up to :icon_razz:
                            or ....
                            3. Scare them :icon_woot:


                              Yes, I will be participating this round. Thank you for handling this for us.
