    SWAP THEME: Spring colors, flowers, pinks, blues, yellows, purples, and such. NOT Easter prints--eggs, bunnies, jellybeans.

    Here is how it will work:

    *Each person will take 2 yards of fabric (36x44)and cut it into 2 1/2 inch x 44 inch strips. Each yard will give you a minimum of 12 strips each.

    *This swap will be limited to 24 slots/participants You can sign up for more than one slot, but not more than 3. You will have to submit a different colored fabric for each slot filled.

    *Fabrics must be 100% cotton and pre-washed to avoid shrinkage.

    *You must be 18 yrs. old or older to participate in this swap.

    *Strips are to be sent to me no later than March 31st with a return envelope and postage included. PM me and I will send you my address.

    *Folks can sign up for one month and not the next, for however long we continue. No need to promise to be here sewing for a year. One month at a time!

    You can drop out and join at any point along the way, but you MUST send out the strips that you committed to after the 31st of March 2010. I will try to cut an extra strip or two in case we have some failures, anyone else who would like to do the same please do, and let me know. Thank you!!

    BYC and staff are not responsible for what happens within this swap and that people should only swap if they are comfortable knowing they might not get a block in return. (Mail or failure on the part of one person to send one) I will do my best to make sure that doesnÂ’t happen, and will try keeping a few blocks on hand to make amends. Please PM CoyoteMagic if there are any failures

    Some strip projects:






    Thank you all for your participation in the swap

    Will do. We have an "I-spy" swap too that has just ended. I'll post those for you too. An "I-spy" quilt is like the game. I spy something.... or the other version I've heard, I spy with my eye something.....

    It doesn't have to be just plain squares either. I've seen them made into stars, animals all kinds of things
