Christmas block swap

Christmas stash
By now most of our members have registered to participate in the Christmas swap.  A couple are yet to send me their preferences so if you have not already done so please get these details to me.  It will work exactly as the general block swap only with a Christmas theme on the block and fabric.
The swap will start in September and I will send out (email) partners in the last week of August, and then I will send the regular swap partners out first week of September so it is staggered each month.

Most months you will have 2 different partners - so we can mix it up a bit, I will try hard to get this right. I have excell spreadsheets all set to go, and my stash of Christmas fabric is growing in readiness.

I'm busy looking for Christmas fabrics and have just ordered a gorgeous matched collection by Moda from the USA, which are just over $2 per fat quarter. I'm looking forward to starting the swap too!

I am new to this group from the USA. I'd like to do both, the xmas and traditional. I really would like sunbonnet sue's or Sam, however, if you are uncomfortable with either, I will take a Friendship Star in any color in the traditional group and Xmas goup a burgendy or blue sparkle fabric. I am not particular, and enjoy getting anything that you wonderful quilter friends feel comfortable with. I really look forward to get my September person. Mary in California.
