Canadian Fat Quarter Round Robin

I followed the post regarding the FQ round robin that Dan the Mailman organized and it looked like so much fun.
Are there any members in Canada interested in doing the same thing? Nannykins has expressed interest but in order for it to be successful I think we need to have at least 5 people. Are there 5 or more members in Canada that would like to participate. I will organize it if we have the interest.

Do we have to be members of this forum to take part? My sister would be interested in joining and perhaps a few members of her quilting group might be interested as well. You set the guidelines though.

RE: Canadian Fat Quarter Round Robin

How about we wait and see if we get interested members. If not, we can make up a group of trustworthy friends and relatives...my sister and her step-daughter would probably be interested too.

Hey Mary,

After a year long hiatus I'm back in this years BD swap but I don't drop in as regularly as I used to so I had to track down the thread you mentioned, but it sounds like fun. Sign me up! The Maritimes is under a TON of snow right now but the mail is still getting through, haha.

Cheers
Faye

RE: Canadian Fat Quarter Round Robin

As soon as I had posted my reply to you, I realized I was being presumptuous to ask about other people. But my sister was visiting and when I told her about the swap, she was very interested.
So yes, let's wait and see who (and how many) would like to take part and then go from there.
Incidentally, my sister lives in Burlington, quite near your area.

RE: Canadian Fat Quarter Round Robin

So far there are 3 of us any other interested parties?

Nanny, where do you live? My sister is in North Augusta just NE of Brockville. Aren't you in Eastern Ontario too?

Mary


 o
RE: Canadian Fat Quarter Round Robin

I am in Windsor, Ontario. As south as you can go. Although you wouldn't know we were south from the amount of snow in our yard.


 o
RE: Canadian Fat Quarter Round Robin

You are about 3 hours from me. I am near the 401 and Highway 6 south in Puslinch Twp. Don't know why I thought you were in Eastern Ont. We still have lots of snow too. Twenty days until spring and I hope it arrives on time!

RE: Canadian Fat Quarter Round Robin

Is it day2day, Geraldine, who lives in Eastern Ont.????


 o
RE: Canadian Fat Quarter Round Robin

Isn't it day2day, Geraldine, who lives in Eastern Canada??


 o
RE: Canadian Fat Quarter Round Robin

I am in New Brunswick. When I was a regular here a few years back, I think I was the only Maritimer. Do I have company now? That would be great!

Anyone else from Canada want to play?

This is a Fat Quarter Round Robin .
I will put a pre-determined number of FQs in a package and send it to someone on the list. They will take out the FQS they would like to keep and replace them with the same number of FQs from their stash/purchased. You can take all of the FQs or as many as you like making sure that you forward the same number on to the next person on the list. When the package has been to everyone on the list, it will be returned to me. It will be fun to see if any of the original FQs return home to me!

Thanks

I am still looking for a few more Canadian members.....I know you are out there and then we can add our sisters to round out the numbers if necessary if this is okay with everyone.
