New Little Quilts Swap - Friendship Strips

Buy three yards of a reproduction style fabric from Little Quilts.  Cut it into 2 1/2" strips.  Bring 42 strips (you may get 43, then keep one) back to Little Quilts by June 24th.  For each set of strips turned in, you will receive a ticket for the swap party, to be held 10AM - 8PM on Tues. June 28.  At that time you will collect forty two 2 1/2" strips, assorted, for each ticket you have.  Perfect for making scrap quilt projects.  You can make projects from any pattern designed for jelly rolls.  Laundry Basket Quilts has published a book called Friendship Strips and Scraps.  Most projects in this book use 1" or 1 1/4" strips.  You can cut your 2 1/2" strips in half and get 2 for one!  Here is a quilt, for inspiration from the book  We have it on display in the store now.

Well, we want everyone to "play", so here goes. The local customers need to buy the fabric at LQ to assure it is A) reproduction style B) quilt shop quality. For Hawaii, that would mean three separate shipments, so we will make an exception. If you are sure your fabric is current, quilt shop quality and reproduction (i.e. Judie Rothermel/Marcus, Jo Morton/ Andover, most Windham etc,) then use your own fabric. If it is not appropriate, then we won't be able to swap it. Cut 42 2 1/2" strips per swap. Mail to Little Quilts to arrive by June 24th. We will swap and return. In your strip swap, include a slip of paper with your credit acard info. we will charge you $6 for s/h.
