I'm kicking around a winter-themed exchange.  Here are my initial thoughts, but by no means are these set in stone!

  • Winter-theme (not Christmas)--snow, snowmen, penguins, etc.
  • Either block exchange or fabric swap, although I'm leaning towards a block exchange.
  • Thought is if a fabric swap, mail date would be approximately October 4-5.
  • If block exchange, mail date would be November 2-3

Anyone interested?  I'm still working it through in my head, but those are my initial thoughts.

 

I know Kelli said she was interested.

Barbara - I am wondering if anyone is going to host a secret santa gift swap this year!  And No I can not do this but wanted to throw the idea out there as we have done one the last few years on QCA - I was not able to participate last year but did the year before and it was a lot of fun getting things together for my secret person - I like having time to do this and we are running out of time if we are going to do one this year!

Susie - if this was a snowman block exchange you would have my participation as I collect snowmen and would love to be involved in a swap block exchange of them but I couldn't participate if the number of blocks got above 12.

Barbara - I know how busy you are - so someone else might take up this big endeavor - i was not suggesting in anyway that you add this to your already overflowing plate... I wish I felt up to doing it but know that there is no way I could do it and do it right!

Just ideas  all ..Barbara

I'd like to see a flannel swap. I'd be happy to host it if we get enough interest.

If we set the number @ 12 participants for the snowman block exchange, I would be interested in participating. I would be interested in hosting this exchange if you need someone to do it.

I would be interested in a block exchange but am not sure what a snowman block would require?

Barbara--I think there is enough interest for a snowman block exchange.

Can you please start a thread for it?  Once you have it set, I'll post what my initial thoughts are, along with guidelines, dates, numbers, etc.

Thanks much :)

I would be interested in a flannel swap.  I would love to do a rag prayer quilt that was made out of solid and plaid flannels.  My husband, Paul, his son's church made one for Paul last winter, and when Paul died. I gave it back to Philip, but now kick myself because I wish I had kept it. :(  So I would like to make one.  So I would definitely be interested in a layer cake one of solid and plaids, as a suggestion.

I am concerned, though, as I talked with Melody, that there are different types of flannel and we would have to be careful about swapping flannel to make sure it is"yarn dyed"?  Just a thought.  I don't have a clue as I am new to the material qualities that everyone is so concerned about.
