I'm so excited about the gray charm square fabric swap, and thrilled to see that you are too!
A couple questions have come up, so I'm going to do a short FAQ here. Let me know if you have other questions; I can always add to this.
I have been trying to keep up with sending Flickr group invites to participants as they sign up. I'm also going to post the link so you can simply visit the page yourself.
Visit the Shades of Gray/Grey fabric swap Flickr group HERE.

Now onto the FAQs:
Q. Can I use two different 1/2 yard cuts, or 4 different fat quarters rather than 1 yard of the same fabric?
A. I'd prefer you just used one fabric. However, if you have 2 generously cut 1/2 yards (my math says it'll be hard to get more than 24 squares out of a 1/2 yard), you can use two different prints. No fat quarters, please.
Q. Do black & white fabrics count, or should it be just gray fabrics?
A. If the black & white fabrics "read" as gray (i.s. small pattern), that's fine. If it looks distinctly black and white, please choose a fabric that reads as gray instead.
Q. What is the due date for sending the fabrics in to be swapped?
A. September 20. Once the swap is filled, I'll email everyone with details and my home address for sending the squares.
Q. What's the deal with the Flickr page?
A. We're trying to avoid duplication so that all participants have a wide variety of gray prints to work with. Please take a photo of your fabric and upload it to the Flickr page so that everyone else can see what you bought. If you can, also list the collection name and fabric company. I'm excited to see all the different grays that people are finding!
Any other questions? Let me know!
Thanks! I look forward to swapping with you!
