The next charm swap is in April, and you can sign up between April 6-22. I set up a page just for the “swap rules,” and to answer all those frequently asked questions. Comments are welcome and appreciated. As with the January swap, you can swap 1.5, 2, or 2.5 inch charms cut from cotton fabric, please no flannels or homespuns. Find the nitty-gritty info here, and on the upcoming April 6th post declaring the swap signup open.
Something NEW is going on this round! We have a few new quilters interested in joining the fun, but they are stash-less. In my opinion, being stash-less is just no fun, so I am asking anyone with stash who is willing to give some away (not swap) to set up little stacks of 50 charms for Newbies. More info on that is also on the FAQ pages. Thanks to my blog readers who have encouraged me to do this. If you are new to quilting, I hope that you will join in the fun.
To showcase the charm collections and quilts of 2012 PSQ Challenges and Swaps participants, I have started a Flickr group called the 2012 Postage Stamp Quilt Challenge from The Curious Quilter. You can comment there at anytime, and post up to eight photos per month as well. ©2012, The Curious Quilter, thecuriousquilter.net, maryeoriginals.com.
