Purple Square Swap

UPDATE: Sign up Extended until Aug. 18. 

Welcome to The Great Fabric Swap, Round 2! 

After our successful yellow swap, we're moving on to a new color. I'm trying out a new format this round in hopes of making the process a little easier for everyone.

First, you must fill out the registration form, join the flickr group, and pay your $6.00 via paypal to in order to be accepted into the group. The first 39 people to do so will be in the group. I'll send you an email confirmation with some specifics about the swap, along with my shipping address. 

For the swap, you will purchase 3 yards of quality quilting fabric to cut into 40 10" squares. That's 100% cotton fabric from a recognized fabric manufacturer. If you purchase from a big box store, you MUST purchase from the "quilting cotton" section only (it usually runs $10-$12/yd.). Otherwise, I'm fine with your purchasing from any quilting shop, etsy, or online fabric company. Fabric purchased from the "calico" section or similar lesser quality will not be accepted. ***More details will be included in the confirmation email.  

Remember, you will not be accepted into the swap unless you join the flickr group, pay your shipping fee, and agree to ship by the date designated in the confirmation email (You'll have a month to purchase, cut and ship your fabric). 

Please be patient with the process. I"m doing this as a side project and, while I enjoy coordinating this, it still requires time and effort on my part. I'm not a professional blogger or quilter. If you'll uphold your end of the bargain, I'll do my best to get your squares to you in a timely manner. I have a smoke-free, pet-free home. However, I do have four children and my first priority is to make sure their needs are met. 

I can't wait to see all the beautiful fabric you choose! 

Don't forget the registration form. 

Registration will close Aug. 9  Aug. 18, 
so register now before we're full


  1. I do not have paypal. Can I send you a check? Prior to buying my fabric? I am afraid to open a paypal as it would be TOO EASY for me to buy things.

    1. Maxine, you can still send money via paypal without an account. You just use a credit card and send it via "friends & family" to my email. It won't show me any payment info other than your name and contact email.
