I have been thinking it up all night ( Having a cold + Baby has a cold = time to mull things over).
This is what I came up with:
Each participant will be sending me the equivalent of 1/2 yard of fabric, or 24 squares. The fabric can be pre-cut in 5"x5" squares, of different prints or be all the same print. Since I will be dividing it amounsgt everybody we shouldn't get much duplicates in the end.
You will be sending a self adressed enveloppe for the squares with about three or four regular 42 cents stamps. I will cover the difference if need be and the international shipping because I can't come up with a better plan.
I ask everybody to send only the kind of fabric they would love to receive, nothing from chain stores please. When you think about it 1/2 yard of good stuff costs barely more than five bucks. So be choosy with your selection and everybody will have a yummy set of squares to work with in the end.
The deadline to enter is October 15th, 2008. I hope we get a good turn out! I will be sending everybody my address through an email after that date.
Meanwhile I made a small button to add to your blog, so spread the word!
