The October 2013 Postage Stamp Quilt Charm Swap Sign-up Begins

A favorite Postage Stamp Quilt.

Are you tired of seeing this picture of a PSQ that I made with over 4,000 two-inch charms?


October 21, 2013 Update: While this swap is now closed, there is a lot of good information on Postage Stamp Quilts in this post. And if you are interested, sign-up for the next PSQ Charm Swap will be March 14-23, 2014.

Let the fun begin! The October 2013 Postage Stamp Quilt Fabric Charm Swap begins today. You can sign-up to swap, or request a Newbie Gift by leaving a comment on THIS post, anytime between October 12-20, 2013. The nitty-gritty details follow, and even return swappers should read on to learn more.

Start packaging your sets and sign up to swap. I KNOW that many of you are already hooked, but I encourage you to invite a friend to join this time. The more swappers, the more variety. Returning swappers, I am glad to have you back. If you are a new swapper, you must review all the rules below carefully, look through the links included. You can find inspiration in the Postage Stamp Quilt pages on the menu bar above.

© CQ PSQ Flickr Photo SamplerYes, I am repeating my words from previous swaps, but there are new swappers out there too, so bear with me please. Even if you didn’t take part in a previous swap, you are most welcome to take part in this one. And if you have been here before, I am comforted to know that my obsession is shared. Be sure to put your collections and progress shots up on our Flickr pages! We have lots of photos, and there are a couple of really fun variations shown.

What is this all about? Postage Stamp Quilts (PSQ’s) are made with small square charms, ranging from 1″ to 2.5″ before sewing. Most quilters strive to make one with as few duplicate fabric squares as possible, but there are some really striking quilts out there that have alternating solids, or lots of repeats. A lot of people are like me, they collect fabric scraps or charms with the plan to make a PSQ sometime. The goal is to get people to actually MAKE a postage stamp quilt. Sooner, not later.

Me? Obsessed? HA! My collection of two-inch treasures reached well over 40,000 charms, and I started stitching them up a couple of years ago. I have finished seven of them, with 3-4,000 charms in each. And yes, I do keep cutting and collecting them. Every quilt fabric that comes into my house gets a few charms cut out of it. If you are new here, or just want to prove to your family that SOME people have more piles of charms than you, read more, and even more, about my journey to use my collection.

Postage Stamp Quilts Playing with Color

There are many ways to play with little fabric charms!

Help a New Quilter start a charm collection! Newbie Gifts are included in the swap this again round. I hear from new quilters who want to make a PSQ quilt, but do not have 100 fabrics to cut charms from. This is NOT a swap, it is a gift. If you are a new quilter who cannot swap, but would like to start a charm collection, sign up below. If you are a quilter with charms to spare, please sign up to donate a set or two. Details below.

Special note about newbie gifts. Many previous Newbie Gift Donors do not want to do it anymore because their Newbie Partners never acknowledged receiving their gift. Some common courtesy is absolutely required. Your donor makes the effort to cut and pack your charms, and pays the postage to get them to you. Let them know when the package arrives!

I am repeating the basic rules (updated here!) for swapping below, but also want to refer you to the main Postage Stamp Quilt 2012 Swaps and Challenge page, and the FAQ’s About Postage Stamp Charm Swaps.

One note for returning swappers: I am not a meanie, really, but if your partner(s) still hasn’t received their charms from you, I will not be matching you with a new partner this round. Fix it, and you can join!

Preparing your Charm Sets to Swap Sign-Up to Swap Newbie Gifts! Puzzled? Find help!

Needle and thread line copyright The Curious Quilter at WordPress dot comPreparing Your Charm Sets To Swap:

Before you sign-up to swap, you should already have your charm sets ready to mail. That saves time at the mailing week, and ensures that you actually have as many sets as you want to swap already cut and ready. Last minute cutting messes up swapping big time! Please note, for this October 2013 swap, you are limited to swapping 8 charm sets in each size that you select.

Charm Size Comparison - stitchedYou have to decide which size charms you want to swap. (My personal favorites are 2″ charms, but most beginners use the 2.5″ ones.) Check out the info in Let’s Talk Size, which compares sizes and the number of charms needed for a quilt, then pick 1.5″, 2″, or 2.5″ charm squares, get out your scraps, and start cutting. Cut some for you, and some to swap. Please use only 100% cotton fabric that is suitable for quilting. When you hold it up to the light, you should not be able to see through it. Homespuns or flannels should not be used for this swap. Yes, a few solids are fine in a set, and if you have the pinked-edge pre-cut charms a few of them can be included as well. Hopefully, your fabric has been pre-washed before cutting, but that may not always be possible. Be sure to use good cutting practices while preparing your charms, no selvedges, never torn, no ripped out stitch holes showing, and so on. No one cuts perfectly, but strive for accuracy in your cutting.

For this swap, if you are interested in one inch charms, please cut two-inch charms to swap. You will have more people available to swap with, although you will have to quarter the ones you receive.

Novelty Charms

Novelty charms are fun in these quilts!

Keep cutting. Fussy cut some fun novelties. Solids, stripes, plaids, prints, metallics, embellished, almost anything goes. Bust up as much stash as you want. Cut up strips and charm squares that you are not using.

Make sets of 100 to swap. Count them out into stacks of 100, with no duplicates in each stack. (Large-scale prints may read as different fabrics when cut into small charms, which is acceptable.) So every set of 100 charms will have no duplicates, and is a UNIQUE set. If you cut 400 squares from 400 fabrics, you have four unique sets. If you cut 400 squares, 4 each from 100 fabrics, you have four matching sets. OK, that may sound confusing, but think of it this way: with unique sets, you could swap them all to one person, but with matching sets, you would swap one set to each of four people, so no duplicates came through!* Don’t sweat it, justRed Star Means Changedholler if you are stuck. If you have 100 charms to swap, you will get 100 charms back. If you have 800 charms to swap, you can get 800 charms back. You are limited to swapping 1-8 sets in each charm size you select.

*Note: A UNIQUE set has each one different. Two UNIQUE sets have 200 different fabrics. If you only have one set, with all different fabrics, it is UNIQUE. TWO MATCHING SETS means that you have two sets cut from 100 different fabrics, but each set is the same. The sets match each other. A goal with postage stamp quilts is to have few or no repeats, so ‘coordinated sets’ – say with 4 each of 25 fabrics, are not acceptable for this swap. That said, however, some duplicates are acceptable in Newbie Sets, read below.

Keep some for yourself. Set aside the number of these stacks that you want to keep for your own stash, after all, they are YOUR little treasures! Once you get started, you may want to make more than one quilt.
Needle and thread line copyright The Curious Quilter at WordPress dot comSign-Up To Swap!

Now that you have cut and counted, you are ready to sign-up to swap. I will be matching you up to one or more other swappers, and emailing you both so you can share mailing addresses. I will be getting those emails off as fast as I can, but please do not worry if you do not hear before October 27! (Remember, I have a job and write two blogs, so it takes me a little while to pull it all together.) Once you have the swap info, you should contact your partner/s and arrange for mailing your charms and get them out within one week.

3- Yes Int’l.
4- two inches.
5- three matching sets, and two unique sets

If you swapped in previous swaps through The Curious Quilter, an effort will be made to give you different swap partner/s this round, to help you get more diversity in your charm stash. But this will not always be possible, so please just enjoy what comes your way!

Red Star Means ChangedBefore you sign up, double-check that your charms are all set to mail! That is why we have a week to sign up, if you want to swap but aren’t through cutting your sets, do not sign-up until you finish cutting and counting them. Please do not directly point a comment at another swapper asking them to swap with you. The only sharing of info between swappers should be through me. I am not trying to be controlling, REALLY, just trying to keep it fair.

NEWBIE QUILTERS! Are you requesting a NEWBIE SET? Read those rules below. To actually sign-up, any time between October 12-20, 2013, leave a comment below, stating each of these items: (it will be helpful if you use the numbers to answer, you can copy and paste sample below and type over my info.)

  1. Your first name.

Red Star Means Changed*Note: Please Do Not Share Info once you get your swap lists! I really am not a total control freak, but I work hard to keep swapping fun. So I have a firm reminder for everyone. Looking ahead to the matching, please remember that you simply can not share your swapper’s names and emails with other swappers. This is a privacy issue, as well as a swapping issue. Also, do not offer to swap with people in the comments, all matching is done behind the scenes, not by comments.

Needle and thread line copyright The Curious Quilter at WordPress dot comNEWBIE GIFT INFORMATION!

What is a Newbie Gift?

Two Inch Treasure Frames

There are many ways to use PSQ charms, even if you do not have thousands of them.

A Newbie Gift is a set of 50 fabric charms in the size requested. All fabrics must be suitable for quilting, with no homespuns or flannels. Preferably, all 50 fabrics will be different, but, since these are probably ‘overstash’ from a seasoned quilter, some duplicates will be acceptable. (After all, the new quilter can trade them with a fellow quilter.) In no case shall a set include fewer than 25 different fabrics, so two of each.

Who Donates Them?
Any quilter with charms to spare! As you probably know, most quilters are very generous people. They may be stash-busting, or have duplicates to share. Or they just may take delight in helping stash-less quilters become fabric addicts!

Red Star Means ChangedBut they are donations, not swaps, so they REALLY MUST GET an email when the gift gets to you. Sounds so basic, but well over half of our NEWBIES in the past have not acknowledged receiving their gifts. Do let your donor know!

Who Can Receive Newbie Gifts?
Red Star Means ChangedAny quilter who has insufficient stash to create a charm set of 100 different fabrics AND HAS NOT PREVIOUSLY REQUESTED NEWBIE SETS! But please note, if you sign-up to swap, you cannot receive a Newbie Gift. While you are waiting for gifts, you might enjoy my PSQ tutorial. Then, keep cutting so you can be a SWAPPER in the October Swap this year! When you GET your gifts, remember to send your donor an email letting them know it arrived safely. (I simply cannot stress that enough!)

How Do I Participate?
Follow the directions in the Sign-Up section, above! Donors, use the SWAPPER instructions. New quilters will find their own instructions there as well.

How Can I Build My Stash?
Red Star Means ChangedOur Newbie Gift Goddess from 2012, BARB K., had a few super ideas for building your own stash quickly, and moving into being a swapper.

  1. Join a local quilt group, as quilters are always willing to share the wealth. Ask for small pieces they don’t need anymore, tell them why!
  2. Check at your local quilt shops, one near Barb has a basket that people leave their leftovers!
  3. recycle or freecyle! Check online for local free-cycle sites, Craigslist, and more. Join these groups locally online and place an ad that you are looking for unwanted fabric suitable for quilting. You will have to pick it up.
  4. Buy SMALL! Buy from your local quilt shop, or the chain stores like Joann’s and Hancock Fabrics. Barb buys a 3″ piece when they are on sale and cuts it into squares. Most of the time the fabric piece is around 35-50 cents. She doesn’t know how small a quilt shop will cut but most Joann’s and Hancock’s will cut as small as 2″ BUT allow for crooked cutting and shrinking and get at least half an inch extra. (Mary says: When I find nifty small novelties, but feel broke, I treat myself to an eighth of a yard, and get as many fussy-cuts as I can out of that!)

Needle and thread line copyright The Curious Quilter at WordPress dot comHave fun! Keep watching for more Postage Stamp Quilt goodness. And thanks so much for taking part!! Oh, and do not forget to start SEWING the charms together. Collecting is fun, but a finished quilt is an accomplishment. And a QUILT is the goal of all this swapping!!

  1. I thought I had scheduled this to post at 2:45 AM, but apparently made it 2:45PM. I know some of you were really watching, here it is!

    • Peggy Malone says:

      6. No newbie gifts, sorry.
      7. I have never swapped before. Currently working on charm quilt but lack variety to get past 1/3 of quilt. Your help would be greatly appreciated! Not sure the destination of the quilt, but want to lovingly use it myself. All my other quilts have left home shortly after completed!

  2. Mary Van Kleeck says:

    1. Mary

  3. Karin says:

    1.Karin
    2.Glendale, AZ USA
    3.2.5 is what I have been cutting my scraps into, mostly – some smaller, but mostly 2.5.
    4.I am a newbie – both to quilting and to PSQs. I have a quilter friend in Wisconsin who has sent me some of her scraps so I could get started. I have made some small projects – potholders, little zippered bags and such and I have found that I love the scrappy look, which is what drew me to the postage stamps. Plus, I am frugal, so I like to use as many of my scraps as I can and this seems to be a perfect way! I have been sewing for eons, but just recently started looking for quilting projects.

  4. Lea Springer says:

    1. Lea
    2. Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada
    3. 2.5 inches
    4. This is the second year that I have read your posting re the swap. I am a beginning quilter so I do not have enough of a stash to share yet but mostly certainly hope to do so in the future. I hope to begin a postage stamp quilt to work on during the long winter (s)! And so I am requesting a newbie gift. Thank you so much and rest assured that I will acknowledge receipt with thanks!

  5. Pam Mamon says:

    1. Pam
    2. Tucson, AZ, USA

    3. 2 inch charms please so I can make a 1 inch project.
    4. Honestly, as a newbie quilter who is curious to make a psq I’m not sure yet what size. If I cannot wait to see a finished project, I will make a lapghan. If I can hold out for a bit, I will make a single sized quilt for my mom’s bed in the nursing home. And if I find I absolutely love psq’s I will graduate to a quilt for our kingsized bed. I was going to start with 2.5 inch, but really, it is the smaller size ones I want. So, challenge me! Longtime quilter who swaps with me…a quick thank you in advance for your generosity! I hope to one day forward the favour!

When I’m done with his, I want to make one for myself. I have been collecting from friends and when I saw the swap, I thought this would be a fun thing to do. Thank you for creating the swap!

    7. got the idea for p.s. quilts from this group. when i found a bunch of scraps i decided to make one for my best friend. the colors were rather dull so i decided to put that one aside and use my brighter colors and many from quilts i had already made for her. then, lo and behold, i spy this swap. now continuing to cut for my friend’s quilt, 2 sets to swap and one of each fabric to make samplers. what fun!

Thanks to all the tips you have posted it may not take as long as I thought.

    Thanks for hosting, so glad I found you 🙂

    Hello Mary, I would love to do the swap AGAIN, but got too much on my plate right now. I have loved doing the swap in the past, and encourage ALL you swappers to do your best!. It is soooo fun to get all the little charms in the mail. Just like Christmas. I am still sewing mine together with my granddaughters help. We are making blocks of same color families.
    My reason for the reply is that I never did get my charms from a lady named (edited). I dont remember her last name, as I threw all my information away. Maybe you got the past info on it, but I have emailed her and you Mary and never did get a reply, so just let it go.
    I really dont expect to still get them, not big deal, but just want to encourage you ALL to please try to meet your swappers needs. Thanks and have fun!

    • Remember, you do not need a pattern, they are optional! Try just sewing blocks like in my demonstration. They can then be sashed or not, and you will have a traditional, random-style PSQ quilt!

I want to make a psq quilt as well as a scrappy one, but simply do not have enough stash. I am beyond excited to have found this post today. I have recently discovered a love for quilting fabric, and it’s so nice to find others who share that. The first time I saw a psq was when I stumbled across your blog a couple months ago and discovered a picture of one of yours draped across a bench in your garden. Love. Love. Love. I can’t wait to make my own, and thank you in advance for everyone’s help!

  104. Maureen Massey says:

    1.Maureen.
    2.North Augusta, SC USA.
    3. 2.5 charms.
    4.My sister-in-law made a beautiful bed size coverlet using 2.5″ hexies. I’ve started one with scraps my friends had but I don’t have enough of my own fabric to have each hexie a different fabric. I’m hand sewing them together and it’ll probably take years to collect enough fabric to finish but I’m having fun!

    • Maureen, check on your size. If you want hexies that are 2.5 inches across from point to point, charms might not work for you (no seam allowance.)

      But if you are doing 2″ hexies (point to point, one inch on each side) the 2.5″ size charm works well!

  105. Brooke Lindenman says:

    1. Brooke
    2. Grinnell, IA
    3. No international this time, please.
    4. Two inch charms.
    5. 7 sets of matching charms.
    6. One newbie gift.
    7. I have about 15 8 square by 8 square blocks completed from my own stash and previous swaps, working on piecing those to make a very scrappy postage stamp quilt.

  106. Dawne Michaud says:

    1. Dawne
    2. Calgary, Alberta, Canada
    3. Yes, international is fine, but not to Calgary or Courtice, please. We’ve already swapped! 🙂
    4. 2 inches
    5. Two unique sets, six matching sets
    6. None, sorry.
    7. I’d love to do one like yours at the top of this page! It’s outstanding!

    I’m hoping you’ll be willing to host another swap for us next year. This is so fun!

    Thanks!

    Melba

    • Melba, welcome to the swap!

      You do not “turn them in” on this swap. You mail them directly to your swap partners.

      After the swap closes tonight, it will take me a few days to sort that all out. Once I have it, I email everyone with their list of partners, including their email addresses. Then you contact each other for mailing addresses.

      I ask that you have the sets ready now so everyone is ready to mail when they get the address info in a few days!

      I encourage you to read the sign-up post in it’s entirety, so there are no surprises for you later!

  110. Melissa W. says:

    Can someone please tell me if I did sign up to do the 2.5″ swap so that I can make sure to have the 8 sets plus the newbie sets I think I signed up for ready? ???

    • Melissa,

      According to your comment, you signed up to swap 8 sets of 2″ charms. You also stated that you have 4 Newbie sets to share!

      But earlier you had signed up differently. So you have every reason to be confused! Let’s sort it out over email.

      Best of luck, glad you are in the swap. All the partner emails will be heading out very soon!

      – Mary
