Rainbow Fat Eighth Swap

Hello again everyone!

I'm so excited about the response we got for our rainbow mini swap! In case you weren't able to make it to the meeting, we are exchanging fat eighths NEXT MONTH, so if you want to participate I need to know by FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26.

The swap will go like this: you pick a color (they will be listed at the bottom of the page), and buy ONE yard high-quality quilting cotton of that color, then cut it into fat eighths, as described in the attachment (which also has this info -- sorry!); each fat eighth will be approx. 9" x 21". At the time of the swap, we will exchange fabrics within each group of 8, so everyone will go home with one fat eighth of each color.

PLEASE DO NOT BUY OR CUT INTO ANY FABRIC UNLESS YOU HEAR FROM ME! I would hate for someone to cut into their fabric, only to find that the group they signed up for isn't going to actually have enough people to complete the group!  (If you've signed up at the Guild meeting, those groups will all happen except possibly not Group #8 -- depending on the response we get to this email.)  I will send out all Group assignments on Friday next week, and then you will know which group you are approved for. :)

If you still want to participate, I will make these groups on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you want to sign up for more than one group (e.g., to join 2 groups for 16 different cuts of fabric), you may at this point, but please join DIFFERENT groups and sign up for DIFFERENT colors. We may not have enough interest in all 10 groups, so if that's the case I'll work it out next Friday.

And one more thing... I'm sorry, but you MUST be a member of the guild, with dues paid, to participate in the swap. Our esteemed secretary will be checking, so please get your dues in if you want to join in the fun!!

The colors that are available are:

Group #7 -- yellow
Group #7 -- blue
Group #7 -- purple

Group #8 -- red
Group #8 -- pink

Group #9 (if there's interest)
all colors -- red, pink, orange, yellow, blue, aqua, green, purple

Group #10 (if there's interest)
all colors -- red, pink, orange, yellow, blue, aqua, green, purple

I'm so excited -- I already cut into some hoarded B&C aqua for my slot in Group #5!
