Time for round 13! (This one is USA only)

Sewing with vintage linens is so much fun! The "fabric" is affordable and eco-friendly, and the prints are retro-cool. Here are a couple links to inspire you:

In this swap, you'll have 2 partners. You'll send each partner 2 FQ (fat quarter) sized pieces from vintage sheets. The two pieces should be different, but they don't need to coordinate. This means you'll send out a total of 4 pieces (2 pieces to each of your 2 partners). A fat quarter is approximately 18"x22" in size. You can include hems, but they should not count in the measurement for the FQ size. Please cut your pieces nicely and make sure they are AT LEAST the correct size.

The specifics:

  • You can use 100% cotton or cotton/poly blends, but no flannel, jersey, satin, silk, etc.

  • Please only send fabric that is in good condition. Some fading and wear is to be expected, but carefully inspect the pieces you send out to make sure there are no holes, stains or very worn spots that would make them unusable.

  • The color/print is wide open (except no solid colors!), and is sender's choice. Please stick to the 50's-60's-70's era. Check out the links above for some great examples. Please do not send children's characters unless you clear it with your partners first.


  • This round is USA only

  • You must have at least a 4.8 rating, with at least a few snail-mail swaps and no unexplained 1s. I will allow newbies, if you PM me ahead of time and have a filled-out profile.

  • I will angel if needed, but I sure hope it won't be!

  • NOTE: If you are significantly late in sending, without communication to both me and your partners, you will be banned from any future swaps I host. I know, that's a pretty lame penalty, but it's all I've got! Having to follow up on people makes hosting less fun, and I want to keep hosting. So please, just send on time. Heck, save yourself some stress - send early!
