#CUTEFUSSYCUTSWAP


EDIT - All places have now been filled.  

I have been admiring for a long time beautiful Fussy Cut character quilts.  My collection however is rather lacking and I think it takes a long time to build up such a beautiful collection of different characters, animals, children, flowers etc.  So I decided what about a swap?

About the #Cutefussycutswap

The idea is to put together 20 - 5in squares with Fussy Cut characters in the centre from your own stash (can be an assortment of 20 different prints or from just a smaller selection of 3 or 4 prints - as long as the character's are in the centre).
The idea of them being in the centre is so that people can then cut them down to the size they require or that the characters are large enough to just put a 1/4in seam allowance around the 5in square and sew up.

Think animals, characters, people, children, plants, flowers, umbrella's, houses, cakes, food, fairy tale characters, bikes, whimsical pictures.  See the photos above for ideas of what we are after and sizes.

How it works

You mail your envelope with your Fussy Cuts to me (here in Aus).  Once they all arrive I will then jumble them up all up and send you back a selection of 20 - 5in fussy cuts from all the stashes from everyone - which should give you a great variety of prints.

For those in Australia - you would need to include a self-addressed, stamped A5 envelope for me to send them back to you in.  20 pieces will keep the postage down and will cost you the same amount to send back as you posted them for.

For those abroad - you would need to include a self-addressed A5 envelope for me to send them back to you in.  I would need your paypal address so that I can arrange the cost of posting them back to you which should just be "Letter Rate" for this envelope.  Of course only the cost of the postage will be charged. 

I am doing this just as fun way to increase your Cute Fussy Cuts and therefore can't track parcels once they leave me.

#Cutefussycutswap - join in the hash tag as you go so that we can see what you are putting together.  

It will be great fun to receive back a collection of Cute Fussy cut fabrics that originate from all over the world to grow your stash without having to send individual parcels all over the world.
