A fussy-cut square is one where you centre the design in the middle of the square so that the maximum of the pattern in within the square. (eg on a character print, you would make sure that the character is in the square, see last rounds galary for some examples). You will swap a minimum 2 square feet of fabric. You should send as many different and unique squares as you can and ideally they should have something identifiable on them to spy! Here are the equivalents for each size of square (there is also the option for half inch cuts too ie 3.5 inches):

If you and your partner want to send more than the required 2 square feet for material, then this is for you to discuss and decide privately, and work out the number of squares required yourself.

Welcome to our first 2 swappers. I can't wait to start sorting out some fabrics this swap. I have managed to pick up loads of new ones that I haven't even cut for myself yet, so once this Christmas crafting is done I might get into that! We don't have any returning swappers yet, but hopefully they will join us soon.

I recieved some amazing fabrics in the post yesterday. I ordered them from the states. The most expensive one was $10 a metre - we pay about $20+ a meter for most fabrics here! So even with the interenational shipping it worked out cheeper.

I got lots of diggers and road signs, mazie mouse letters and numbers, a greatt kis drawings one with dinosoars, cars, bugs and all sorts on it! Really excited to start cutting.

WIll give the participants a nudge after Christmas and see if they want to join. Otherwise, I guess we might just have 2 partners each!

I am still trying to get a swap out the door and waiting on feedback, but I do plan on joining.  I have been planning to make the quilt pictured for a long time now and when I saw the picture for this swap, I knew I had to join Cheesy

I bought some new fabrics today, and cut a bunch out.....until I remembered that I said I'd swap with 2 people instead of 1!  D'oh!  Oh well, I'll do more cutting tomorrow.  I've also raided my mom's and MIL's stashes, and am going to the quilt store tomorrow for a few more fat quarters.

I'm trying to decide how I want to put together my own quilt.  I LOVE the magnifying glasses but have neither the time nor patience to do that.  I might put it together with black sashing between the blocks instead.
