Frontera Swap Bee


Several members of FQG have been inspired to work on scrap quilts and have expressed an interest in fabric exchanges and in the future possibly blocks will be exchanged as well.

I have prepared the following guidelines and will assist, however I do welcome others to step forward and be the swap masters and offer any swap ideas.

This bee is open to all members. So here we go, these are the guidelines:

1. All fabrics must be quality 100% cotton.

2. Follow fabric and size guidelines for each swap. There may be fabric variations for each swap.

3. Participants will receive the same number of fabrics or blocks that they bring to the swap.

4. Selvedges should be removed and not included in the fabric measurements or blocks

5. Seam allowances should be 1/4" and threads should be trimmed if blocks are traded.

6. Trades may be brought to the general meeting or provided to the swap master by the due date.

7. Trades will be returned to the participants as soon as possible. This will depend on the volume and the number of participants.

Smaller swaps can be completed at the general meeting of FQG, other swaps may be additional time and to swap and then return to the participants.
