Let's Do This

 It is spring!!!

Even though it did snow this morning.

For those of you who are new,
in the spring I do a rainbow swap.

This is how it goes. 

Step one......

Sign up.

You sign up on this cute little google doc 
that my friend Aimee made for me. 

Now in the past this has been very popular so there are going to be three swaps.

Click on one of those links.
(or all three if you feel so inclined)

Pick your color.
Give me your info, and you are in.

Look how easy that is.

Step Two....

You get to go shopping!!!!

You will buy ten fabrics of the color you chose.

All you need is a 1/4 yard, or a fat quarter.

You see there are twenty people in each swap,
each buying ten fabrics.

So you will get back 200 different fabrics.

I know awesome right.

Step Three....

Cut them up.

You need to get twenty squares from each fabric.

Four inches each.

I have provided you this nice little tutorial .

Step Four....

Stack them up.

Please show that you love me, and you are thankful for this swap.

You can do that by stacking your fabrics into twenty individual piles,
one fabric per pile.

This saves me from touching 800 separate pieces of fabric,
and for that I am very thankful.

Step Five....

Send them to me.

The deadline for them being in the mail is May 6th.

That way I can sort, bag and hopefully have them in the mail 
back to you by the end of the week.

Then you will get a nice Mother's Day present.

Somethings to remember....

This is not Orange...

this is not Yellow...

and this believe it or not is not Green.

There is a difference,
 and we want to love every fabric you send.

We want to put a little bit of you into our quilts.

So let's play nice.

There is a difference between aqua blue and royal blue,
lime green and kelly green,
light pink and hot pink.

If you think this is going to be a problem for you, go ahead and pick yellow.

This is a spring swap so we want cool bright fabrics,
not warm moody fabrics.

Sunny orange not pumpkin orange.

Ok are you excited?

Have you been waiting?

Have you been planning your projects just waiting for me to come back?

Just kidding

Go sign up...

I will send you an email with all the gory details,
in case you got lost along the way.

Have fun!!!!
