Debbie:

Barbara - tried to add a new post about a swap for batiks - is there any interests for one with batiks FQs?  or any size?  I would be willing to be a host if there is, say 12 - 15 to do the swap. 

anyone? 

I would be interested in a batik swap

Can you give us a brief rundown of what you are thinking for this swap? Then I can make a more informed decision.

Debbie , I think if you do this you need a longer deadline .April 30th is just alittle over a week and that is really not very long to get fabric cut it and send .Many will have to order fabirc. I will open a thread for you .get your requirements set and you can then wirte it all up .Looks at some of the other swaps for a refrence .  Barbara

 I was just curious about the amount of fabric we are swapping. One (1) FQ per/participant?  What is the limit on participants? When is it starting? etc.

I am proposing another Fat Jellyroll with a piece of Cake for a new swap. It will be Primitive Americana. Colors that represent the country are soft burgundy, dusty blue & cream. The primitives are so precious; I would love to have a few for some projects.
We will be only 9 participants for this one as it will require 3¾ yards of one fabric.  After the fabric is square you can cut 10 FQ from 90”, put one on the side, the 10 X 10” cake from 20” (+ cut 2 sq. from extra FQ) and the JR strips from 20” 133”/ 36= 3.69 yards.  

Who wants to play? Swap will open on Thursday April 26, close on Wednesday May 15, 2013 mail by the 22nd and I will ship out when all packages arrive.
These fabrics make up cute 4th of July and labor day table runners and place mats too.
 Send postage $5.60 in check or prepaid postage no stamps please.

JR 2.5” strip wof

 

FQ 18” x ½ of wof

Primitive Americana swap is on hold. We may try to do this one again in the summer.
Want to share with you all the fabrics that have wowed me from our just finished Floral FQ & a Jellyroll swap. The participants have made my decisions of what to use for the needed Floral FQ and the Jellyroll (piano key border) quilt for my eldest Grand’s graduation. If you have not tried a swap just do it and join in the fun.
