Description:

I really like lots of color themed swaps and since I love to sew too, I thought why not make it a quilter's fat quarter color swap. I see a lot of swaps for yarn out there and also just for colors, but none for those cute little fat quarters we all see at the material shops. You can use them to make quilts, hats, purses, doll clothes, or anything that takes about 1/4 yd of material.

We are on swap #12 and it will be Red, White and Blue for the 4th of July theme this time, since it is July and I think of stripes and stars. The swaps are fun and I love doing them.

This swap will be all about colors Red, White and Blue. That means any material as long as it has the red, white and blue colors in them.

This is an open swap to overseas and USA.

You will have one partner to send to.

Send:

  1. 4 fat quarters in red, white, and blue
  2. red, white, or blue thread
  3. red, white and blue or any one of these 3 colors note cards/journal/stationery
  4. red, white, and blue surprise gift

Make your package go together....

You should send a package that keeps true to the colors red, white, and blue as much as possible and is worth at least $15 (pre-postage). If you wish to substitute other items for #2 and #3 that is ok as long as it is something to do with sewing and the package theme color or colors.

Please note that I have added a Flickr page to post your photos and Thank-you for all your packages received. See the site address above.

Look at your partners profile and include extra items such as notions, buttons, stitckers, needles, pins,a pattern, bias trim, ribbon,lace,or any other item you think in prints that would be nice to receive. This can be an inexpensive mailing package. That is why it will be fun.

Please have a rating of 4.75 and zero no sends. Newbies are welcome; please have a well filled out profile and email me BEFORE you join. Otherwise I will delete you from the swap!!

Lastly, please rate your partner accordingly. When you receive your swap, rating them is a great way to let them know you received it.

If you have not received your swap in a timely manner, please email me and I will try to assist you in conacting your partner.

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this swap.

Happy Swapping!

I have one request of mmy partner. I would prefer not to receive fabric that was 4th of July related. Stars are fabulous, but nothing that would be specific for the 4th of July please :) thanks a bunch

I'm hoping the same thing as igobylorib! :) I love red, blue and white combined together! And I adore Gant and Lexington type products and stars and stripes, but as the 4th of July is not a special day here in Finland I hope that my partner doesn't send anything too much related to that day or USA only! Thanks :)

hello! As Piiata and igobylrib; me too, I live in the Netherlands and our flag has the same colours ;-) but please don't send anything 4th of July-ish. I wish all the swappers of USA a great 4th of July celebration ;-)

I would love any Fabric that contains the colors of Red, White and Blue. It can be 4th of July Prints or any other prints... you choose.. I am not that picky ;) I am just looking forward to participating in the swap.

Ok Ok ... I am old and Dumb... This fabric doesn't have to be just Patriotic fabrics.. Does it have to be a fabric that only has those three colors??? Or just a fabric that has red, white and blue colors in it...with other colors also. Exp: a print fabric that also contains...green orange and yellow in it is also an acceptable fabric?? Just as long as it has red, white and blue in it? Thank you for clearing this up for me...

Oh my gosh this sounds like so much fun! I am really into the Americana theme.

You mentioned at least $10.00, 4 FQ's are over that amount, thread is $2-4 a spool, etc so I see this as being at least a $15-20 swap. FYI

DaCraftyLady 07/22/2008 #

probably true...I was thinking of $1 fat 1/4 and then thread....sometimes fat 1/4 ar $1.99 that is still $8 + so I will raise the cost I guess.. inflation.. lol

DaCraftyLady 07/22/2008 #

some people make their own and others buy all the 1/4 my sentence reads at least....
