Kris:

If one browser works but another doesn't you may need to empty the cache, delete bookmarks and remove cookies from the one you've used frequently. As QCA updates the website data will change and the info saved on your browser will be outdated.

You should do this periodically to keep your browser running smoothly. Do a search on how to empty the cache, etc for your specific browser. They're not all the same.

Isn't it great that QCA is taking a turn for the better?

Heh Kris,  thanks for this info! I know this works I followed your advice you had posted in the main forum!!  Thank you! So excited things are looking up!

Plus remember your password for when you empty your cache as you will have to re-enter it to get into QCA and the other sites that you have stored passwords for.  QCA I am sure is updating also because of the heartbleed fix that has to be done for all SSL sites.  It is great that they are cleaning up this site and making it friendly for us again.  It is nice to see old members returning and new ones able to stay and to be able to post without too much trouble!

Roxana I really like the idea of  a large print fabric exchange like you said, with a pattern included.

I was reading through the posts on the "did you work on a quilt today" thread and Debbie Do had posted a photo of her Shadow Box quilt and my first thought was 'how pretty!' and my second was 'that would be a great pattern for a large print fabric swap'!  So if anyone decides to do a layer cake swap for large prints I am very interested in joining!

I have edited the guidelines for being a member of the Fabric Swaps group in accordance with our discussions over the past several weeks. Please look at it and let me know if anything needs to be changed or added. Thank you!

What about a Fat Quarter swap instead? That way we get to choose from the large print what size we want to use instead of the layer cake size choosing for us. What do you all think?

I also like the idea of an oriental fabric swap.

Let's get someone to hostess that hasn't hosted in a while or at all. Read the Guidelines for Hosting on the Pages for Fabric Swaps.

Guidelines for Hosting a Swap

How about it? I'll help you with the details.

What is a no sew swap? I get no sewing involved, but what exactly is it?

Erin, it's where we swap fabric. What makes the swap particular is what the cut of fabric is to be. We just cut a layer cake, a fat quarter, etc.

I would love to be a part of a no sew fabric swap.

Someone would need to give me the block measurements :)

Ahhhh, okay Roxana, thanks! I've been in no sew swaps, just didn't know it! LOL   I was thinking maybe it was swapping notions or something- still a newbie I guess! :/

good day all, I've sent a message to Roxana telling her about our great swap last spring for the beautiful flora layer cake and jelly roll matchup. We had 20 participants and the selection was superb. I know it is hard to get a fussy cut from a LC however, if you would like to do FQ then we will need to limit the participants. Without going to do the math or finding last years info, I can tell you approximately 3.5 yards of one fabric is required for 20 LC and JR match up. for FQ 3.5 yards yields 14. So I am wondering what the majority would rather see. We can do 16 for 4 yards of large print floral.  floral would consist of natures beauties such as every flower we see. However, in this swap the main objective is beautiful fabric So I say floral not flower prints.

 

Let's hear comments for a floral swap. JR/LC or FQ .  your opinion matters  Thanks Roxana can watch for me on comments or find me and message me here or in Facebook.

Hi Everyone:

Since I am new on Fabric Swaps, what does JR/LC mean?

Hope to hear from someone.
