Charm Square Swap Information

Charm Squares are the perfect size for many scrappy projects and this month we'll be giving you the opportunity to trade some of your charm squares for a surprise assortment of new-to-you ones.  Here's all you have to do to join in the fun.

1. Fill out the Survey...keep an eye out for an email from Lynne (STLMQG Secretary) or follow the link below (please only fill this out once).

2. Bring anywhere from 10-40 Charm Squares in a small ziploc bag.  They can all be the same print/solid or a random assortment.  **See below for more info regarding the types of prints**

3. You'll turn in your Charm Squares at the beginning of the meeting (Your name and Quantity brought will be noted).

4. By meeting's end, you'll go home with a new assortment...Surprise!!!!!

Remember, swap onto others as you'll have swapped onto you...that means:

:: Fabric should be Quilt Shop quality.  Should you decide to bring fabric from Jo-Ann's or Hancock it must be from their Higher-Priced/Quality Lines (DSQuilts, Michael Miller Prints, M'Liss, TopShelf, etc). 

:: Precuts are a fast and easy way to participate in this swap, just make sure that the fabric is Quilt Shop quality as mentioned above and is bright and cheery like the photos below.
::As we are a Modern Quilt Guild, please make sure that you fabric is fun, fresh and cheery.
Here are some examples of the types of prints/colors to bring...

We ALL have different likes and preferences, please note that the above was not meant to put a damper on your fun; but rather to ensure that everyone has a good time. 

 We'll see you all on Saturday!!!
