This swap is for 10 (Ten) 5"x5" quilt charms. No more than 2 of any pattern. The theme this month is Retro 30's reproduction prints. These are cheerful prints with small motifs, often florals but also including checks and geometric shapes. Novelty prints of this period are encouraged. No solids, please.

100% cotton only, sender's choice. Choose from your stash or use this as an excuse to buy more fabric. It does not need to be designer quilt shop fabric but it should be at least Joann's quality and something you would like to receive yourself. Please don't send junk.

Fabric should be clean and pressed. No musty fabric, no pet hair, no cigarette smoke please.

Please remember to include a card with the name of the swap, the date and your SwapBot name.

Rate when you receive your charms. Not rating is rude.

You must have a 4.95 rating to join this swap, with no outstanding or unexplained 1s. I reserve the option to ban anyone who I feel might not be a good swap partner.

You must be 18 years of age or older, per Swap-Bot rules, to join this swap.

Please ask if you have questions. I would rather have questions up front than misunderstandings and hurt feelings later.

I'm taking suggestions for the last two swaps of the year. If you have a favorite color or type of fabric to swap, leave a comment here, or PM me. :)

We've done: Blues, pink, green, random, summer, Christmas, fall, and retro so far.

I am so into what I call the "vintage word print" fabrics. I found some at 2 different shops I go to. Old document prints, uplifting words/phrases, patriotic documents, ledger prints, song lyrics, old bookkeeping prints, maps, graphs, receipts, etc. I don't know if folks are into that kind of thing like I am but if you set up a swap for them, you can count me in. since this is a new fabric option, maybe the number of charms could be less and the cuts larger than 5 inches so that more of the print is shown. Let me know what you think. thank you.
