Hello there all you quiltaholics! Are you ready for another great quilting related swap!?! Rules are the same as all my other fabric swaps. Keep swapping those strips!
THIS IS THE MODERN EDITION OF OUR NOODLE SWAPS. DO YOU PREFER TO RECEIVE MODERN QUILT FABRICS? ARE YOU JUST NOT INTO THE CIVIL WAR, COUNTRY, OR NOVELTY FABICS? THIS SWAP IS FOR YOU. ALL MEMBERS WHO JOIN PLEDGE TO SEND ONLY MODERN, CONTEMPORARY FABRICS. HERE ARE A FEW DESIGNERS TO SEND: Amy Butler, Joel Dewberry, Mark Lipinski, Tula Pink, Tanya Whelan, Kaffe Fassett, Anna Maria Horner, Erin McMorris, Heather Bailey, Heather Ross, Valori Wells, Michael Miller, Paula Prass, Some Moda, Sandi Henderson, etc.
I decided to start a simple monthly fabric strip swap. In my quilting circles we've always called them NOODLES. We love noodles. They are so versatile!
What can you do with a 5" noodle? Cut them in half to make (2) 2.5" noodles. Great for strip quilts! Cut them in half again to make (4) 1.25" noodles. Great for log cabin blocks! Cut them up into 5" charm squares for half square triangles. Great all around!! Need I say more?!?!
Every participant will take one yard of fabric of their choice. After washing and pressing, cut your 5" noodles by WOF (width of fabric). You should end up with 6 noodles and a little left over. Save one noodle for yourself and send the remaining 5 noodles to your 5 partners. That's right, I said you will have 5 partners!
Just think of how happy you will be when you get 5 envelopes containing 5 different fabric noodles in the weeks ahead!
YOU WILL HAVE 2 WEEKS TO CUT YOUR FABRIC AND MAIL IT TO YOUR PARTNERS.
Here are the requirements:
1.All Fabric must be Quilt Shop Quality, 100% cotton. Please wash and iron before cutting. We don't want any surprise bleeds, runs or puckering that can happen when using unwashed fabric.
2.Please try to be very careful when cutting to make sure your strips are straight and 5" wide the entire length of the noodle. After you cut your strips, please open them out to be sure that they are STRAIGHT with no V's or curves in them!
3.PLEASE SEND WHAT YOU WANT TO RECEIVE!!
4.I will allow newbies with a fully filled out profile for this swap. I know I was frustrated when I first started and no one would let me swap because I was new. BUT, if you flake or have a shady profile I will drop you.
HAVE FUN & HAPPY QUILTING!
See you next time!
