Description:

I have asked gnomeangel if I could host a scrap swap in the USA only and she has kindly let me.

For those wanting to make a Scrap Vomit Quilt as seen on "I'm a Ginger Monkey": http://imagingermonkey.blogspot.com.au/2010/10/care-for-some-scrap-vomit-aka-quilt.html

Details: 1. What to Swap - You'll be swapping a Scrap Vomit Square Pack. The pack contains 49 x 2.5" squares of material. This is enough Scrap Vomit Squares to create one Block A. (Obviously, you can use the squares you receive any way you like.) This is a scrap quilt so there's no expectation that the squares will be fussy cut. You just have to make a 2.5" square of a single material - please don't use selvage or sew scraps together to make a square. It would be great if you could swap 49 different fabrics in your Scrap Vomit Square Pack, however if you can't do this I ask that you try to include as many different fabrics as possible it will help people to have unique and one of a kind quilts.

2. Give unto Others - It should go without saying, but just so we're clear: only swap material that you would be happy to receive and use in a quilt yourself. This means swapping quilting quality material (preferably cotton). Using a mix of pattern that you think is both pretty and vomitty. (Obviously this one is a little subjective, so again if you'd be happy to use it swap it - if in doubt probably best to either contact the person you're swapping with to see if they'd like it or maybe keep it for yourself (and you're next scrap quilt!).)

3. Communication is Key - I understand that life sometimes throws you a curve ball and means that you can't always do what you would like, so if for any reason you have to pull out of the swap just drop me (and if you're so inclined) your partners an email to let me know and we'll work around it. The more warning you can give the better so that I can redirect packages, etc.

4. Time is Money - Please post your squares to your swap partner by the postage date specified. If you're anything like me just knowing that something is coming in the mail is uber exciting, so it would be great if all our packages arrive around the same time so that we can all celebrate together.

5. Quilt Karma - Ultimately a swap like this is only as good as what you put in to it so please remember to treat everyone as you would expect to be treated. Chances are if you shaft someone today, you'll be shafted tomorrow.

I love the looks of this quilt!! Thanks so much for hosting! I do prefer 100% cotton fabric in my quilts....OK, call me a fabric snob but over the years I've found that cotton works best for me! ;^)
