Hello all, and thank you for visiting Fair and Square.
As you probably know by now, this is a blog in which our Friendship Quilt Square exchange group will report its activities. I think you will agree with me that Vonna did a terrific job in setting up this blog, and the blog explaining our rules.
Now that you have all read the rules, a few questions have arisen among you lot. One of them is a concern about the actual size of the squares. Some of you pointed out that they may not have enough patterns that would fill a square of 50 X 50 stitches. Please don't worry about that. The point is that a stitched piece should never exceed 50 X 50 stitches; that doesn't mean to say that whatever you stitch should completely fill the alloted area. Please feel free to stitch anything you like, even if it's smaller than 50 X 50 stitches. As long as the 'quilters' among us end up with a set of equally large squares.
Some of you were also wondering about the timeframe. Vonna and I decided to start the 'pairing procedure' on June 1st, which means you will receive the name of your first exchange partner on that date. Our first deadline for posting will be on July 15th. That's still quite a long way away. Right? Plenty of time to go through your stash, in search of something that would fit in a 50 x 50 stitch square :o)
In the course of the next few weeks, I will try and pimp the header of this blog into something a bit more colourful, to make it into a nice, cozy meeting place, where we can all share our fair squares.
Well, that's it from me for now. If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me at anvladar at yahoo dot com, or leave a comment, and Vonna or I will get back to you ASAP.
I hope you will all enjoy this Friendshp Quilt Square Exchange Experience. Happy stitching!
