The July Postage Stamp Quilt Charm Swap Signup is closed. Quilters everywhere, start cutting and saving up charm sets for the October Swap.
Now I am going to bury myself in the matching process! I know that you all the swappers are eager to get your matches, mail your sets, and get new ones in return. Bear with me for a few days while I sort it all out!Newbie donors, and people getting newbie gifts, you will be getting emails from Barb Kibler, who has graciously volunteered to shepherd that process along. She will also need a couple of days to get it all ready to go.
One of the unusual things I have noticed about this blog is that you, the readers, often chat with each other via the comment sections. I am delighted! Before you start to chat amongst yourselves today, please do go to our pages on Flickr and share pictures of your charm sets, or your PSQ quilt progress! Then come back and tell people what you posted, and what you saw there that inspired you.Oh, and, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, this swapping is not just about collecting charms. Start SEWING! Even if you do not have enough, you can chain pairs and begin to make your Postage Stamp Quilt grow. If you are not motivated to colorwash or use a fancy design, the classic random look is still stunning, and blocks can be built over months, or even years.
