You all have been so patiently waiting for me to start the next round of the 1930s fabric swap. I really appreciate it. Sometimes life gets crazy and gets in the way of being able to have time for all of the fun stuff.

Well, the third round of the swap isn’t finished yet. I have one swapper left that hasn’t received her fat quarters and I’m trying to get it straightened out. I’ve received a lot of positive feedback from those that participated in the round. In case you aren’t familiar with it, those that signed up were assigned somebody else to send four fat quarters of 1930s repro print fabric. I’m glad to hear the positive feedback but for me it required more of my time. I’ve had to do a lot of follow up emails with everybody making sure they received their swap package, etc. I’m not ruling out doing one of these kind of rounds again but I think I’ll wait a bit. Sorry to sound like a Negative Nellie!

Now, on to Round 4! I’m going to fall back to what we did the first two rounds. Those two rounds were fantastic! We’ll have 28 spots and be swapping 5″ x 10″ pieces. Whatever you like to call them — bricks, double wide charms, etc. Every spot is responsible for one yard of a 1930s repro print.

I plan to open sign ups in the next day or two. I need to finish getting everything set up first. In the meantime, you can join our Flickr group, if you haven’t already. If you’re not familiar with how this swap will work, please read about Round 2.

Sound good? I’ll be back in the next day or so to take sign ups. I also have something similar but different planned for Round 5 and you won’t have to do any work.

PS — Thank you to everybody who filled out my survey. I’ve skimmed through the responses but will be taking a closer look. I’ll also tally up the responses for the different size cuts and share the results.
