We will be swapping 28 5x10" "bricks" from the Liberty Lifestyles (quilting cotton) line Bloomsbury. One can achieve 28 bricks from a single yard, please choose two different fabrics in one yard lengths (some people buy 1 1/8 or 1 1/4 for "insurance").

There are 28 spaces total. You may have more than one spot, meaning you would buy 4 yards total and get duplicates of each fabric. I will share my mailing address via Flickr mail, and our deadline will be one month after the group is full.

We will be making sure there are NO DUPLICATES in the selections - there are 55 prints, and we all want to get all of them.

Please see this link for official color names and prints!

She's typing RECEIVED next to the names on the list at the top of the page, but it doesn't appear to have been updated lately. She mentioned internet issues or something previously. I know the delivery confirmation on my package says she should have it already, too.

HappierThanABirdQuilts, Brenda just heard back from her liberty rep, and what we need should be in her hands next week! Which means it'll be in mine shortly thereafter. :-)

After an incident with my niece, a pair of scissors, and this fabric, I had to re-order. It should be here within the week & to you within the next two weeks! Sorry for the delay!

HappierThanABirdQuilts,

I received from daiseyclover on Saturday. I have not received the shipping notice on the order for me and locodowo yet, I am emailing them because it's been a while.

emilyinez,

admin
kejreeves 6 years ago
Pink Castle has mailed my fabric, yay! It should be here in the next few days. I'll pre-sort everyone's and get mine cut asap!

Emilyinez, I haven't heard from you, is everything ok?
lindsey_stitches 6 years ago
If you don't hear from her, I'll step in and take her slot, unless somebody else is wanting to join in.

Hey Emilyinez - Were you able to get replacement fabric?
admin
kejreeves 6 years ago
I've heard from Emily - I expect her replacement fabric and my shipment to arrive Saturday. I will cut the fabric for me and locodo (and ulla bee's "make up" bricks) on Monday and get everything out as quickly as possible - likely Tuesdsay.
Certified-Cute 6 years ago
^Awesome! I just wasn't sure if she got your messages. If you put the link to their profile within brackets ([url-here]) it adds it to their little 'news feed' on their home page so they know their being asked something.
lindsey_stitches 6 years ago
yay!
Certified-Cute Posted 6 years ago. Edited by Certified-Cute (member) 6 years ago
Just wondering if you received the fabric by Saturday and if you have made the stacks and ready to ship?

Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!
admin
kejreeves 6 years ago
Certified-cute, I didn't receive it. informs me that it'll be in the mail tomorrow, there was some snafu with her sister not mailing it. I'm sad that I don't have them all back out, but they will be ready to go and awaiting the last blocks, so it'll be instant turnaround when they arrive!

Everyone who had an addressed envelope - your packages are out - if you were part of the "group" from hehehe992, I need to put together your mailing labels. :-)

Small snafu: someone whose package went out yesterday is missing part of the stack. I don't know how I did this, and it'll teach me not to seal each envelope as I finish it. So PLEASE check your package, the stack will be short by 22 bricks. Which you would THINK I would have noticed.

I am so sorry, and please message me if it's you, along with your mailing address, so I can get them to you ASAP.

And seriously, no more sealing envelopes until everything is accounted for.
Certified-Cute 6 years ago
lol. Happens to the best of us. I work as a shipping person as my full time job for an online company and sometimes it just happens. I know I will seal a envelope and think about it and realize I forgot something and then I have to go through the huge pile figuring out which one it was.
lindsey_stitches 6 years ago
Got mine today, thank so much!
theconfusedquilter Posted 6 years ago. Edited by theconfusedquilter (member) 6 years ago
Mine just arrived, and I have all my absolutely gorgeous bricks!

Mine arrived but I'm missing a couple prints and I have extra of a few prints. I mailed Kate but if you're missing any prints I might have them :)
jkpwynn 6 years ago
Just started checking mine and I did too. Let me get them all sorted and I'll report back - maybe we got mixed up and have what the other one needs.
jkpwynn 6 years ago
Wow - when I starting checking, I can see how some of these got mixed up - a few are very VERY similar!!

Ok here's what I have extra of and what I'm missing:

LYTTON - good (these were so close I thought at first I had two of the same, lol)

DOROTHY - missing Natural Brown

CATHERINE - extra Magenta Teal

DANCE - extra Natural Brown

GARNET - extra Pale Blue, missing Magenta Teal

LEONARD - I have two of the same ones of these, but by the picture linked above, I can't tell if I have two Rich Red Blue or two Magenta Teal. I THINK I have 2 Magenta Teal b/c the red leans more toward pinky than orangey - Maybe if someone else has two we can figure it out that way.

Thanks for looking fordcowgirl, I would've never noticed until I started a project and who KNOWS when that would've been as far behind as I am right now, lol.

kejreeves 6 years ago
First, the garret pale blue is the intentionally duplicated print, this collection had 55, so I chose to make that the 56th.

Also, the Leonard prints looked nearly identical to me, too. I'm not sure if liberty just didn't make the color different enough between the prints or if a supplier got theirs mislabeled. It's the one print I'm officially annoyed with -why have what could be mistaken as two reds?

But as for the rest, I am so sorry, and I'm not sure what is going on!

Ok, I'm making a new thread to help sort this out: www.flickr.com/groups/2066124@N24/discuss/72157632154239482/
jkpwynn 6 years ago
Thanks for helping sort it out, kejreeves.

When I was going through my stack my eyes started to cross, lol - so I can't even imagine trying to sort as many as we had.

You're only human - We'll get it figured it. :)

I received my set. I flipped thought them and didn't notice anything missing (let's face it they all look really similar). I hope people aren't being to difficult to deal with. After doing a ton of swaps my expectations are always pretty low. I think you did a great job and I am super happy with what I received.

Marci Girl Designs:

Marci, I wanted to thank you and tell you, my daughter loved the charms you sent, and wanted to sew, so we sewed them on to some plain 5x10 bricks - I'll be using them as accents on a pair of project bags!

People have been awesome. I'm frustrated with the error, but since the world is run by humans, I know errors happen. Heck, squid overlords would probably make errors, too. ;-)
shecanquilt PRO Posted 6 years ago. Edited by shecanquilt (member) 6 years ago
My fabrics came today, thank you so much. I have the same missing ones, etc. I am totally good with what I have, this is an amazing set. Thank you for sorting it all out. I am excited to have it before the holidays for holiday sewing.

Oh yeah! Glad to hear they got put to good use!
