This will be a swap of fall fabric fat quarters.  I would prefer that we not include Halloween fabric, let's save that for another time.  This can be anything having to do with fall of the year including Thanksgiving. 

This will be for 2 fat quarters for each participant.  Since fat quarters are a little expensive, we will limit this to 12 people.  Remember, dimensions of a fat quarter are 18" by 22".  Most quilt shops are happy to cut your chosen fabric into fat quarters for you at no additional cost.

This number of fat quarters is a little more difficult to get into a flat rate envelope, but it can be done if you use the traditional fat quarter fold and some extra tape.  Put your fabric in a plastic bag, zip lock or fold over, and put your name on the bag.  Please send a stamped pre-paid and addressed envelope for your return fabric. 

Close date will be Monday, July 29. Surely we can narrow down our fabric in this length of time!

I should receive all fabric no later than August 9.  I will do my best to have it back out in the mail by August 16.

 As you sign up, please friend me so that I can send you my address and my email address..

I will update the list daily so check in often to make sure I have your name on the list.

I so enjoyed all of the 4th of July fabric I got in that swap, I can't wait to see what kind of fall fabrics we all come up with. 

If we lose our website during this time, you can email me with questions and/or information and I am also very active on Facebook.  Facebooks is how I keep up with my kids and grandkids that live out of state.   I have all my privacy settings so that no one can get to my friends list or any information about me.  I do not play Facebook games so they can't get information that way either. 

Let me know if I have left out any information.

Start looking for that absolute perfect fabric!

Do I put the two fat quarters in a plastic bag or all 24? Also, do they all need to come from the same fabric or can I use quality fall fabric from my stash? I have lots of left over fat quarters from the HST  exchange and would like to use it instead of buying more. Your call.

Put all 24 in a plastic bad.  That way if the bag gets wet or something, hopefully, our fabric will stay dry.  Use whatever fat quarters you want, they don't have to match or be from the same fabric.  Please, just make at least some of them ugly for my sake!  In the 4th of July swap some did a mix and they were all great, beautiful fabric and I had a horrible time choosing. However, I have not run across too many pieces of fabric that I thought were ugly!  I love them all.
