The October Postage Stamp Quilt Charm Swap Signup is closed. Quilters everywhere, feel free to keep cutting and saving up charm sets for at least one swap in 2013.
Now I am going to bury myself in the matching process! I will be joined again by Barbara in Michigan, who is doing the Newbie Gift matches. I know that you all the swappers are eager to get your matches, mail your sets, and get new ones in return. I must tell you that I did not expect to land a new job that starts today when I set this date, but it might slow me down for a day or two. Please 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 once again graciously volunteered to shepherd that process along. She will also need a few days to get it all ready to go.
If you haven’t shared your own progress with using up all your fun charms, 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. You should be 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.
