Fat Quarter = a 18"X22" cut of 100% cotton fabric (sometimes 18"X21", but never smaller)

Summary: 2 partners each receiving 2 DIFFERENT Fat Quarters

In this swap you will have two partners and send each partner 2 different Fat Quarters of 100% cotton fabric. Please no recycled fabric. You should send new purchased pre-cut FQ's, or you can cut the FQ's from your stash of new fabric. Measure and cut as accurately as possible so as not to cut less than 18"X21"-22". However, larger cuts are welcome!

Please post below the color or basic print you'd like to receive from your partners. Try not to be too specific so it will be easy on your partners to fill your request.

Senders, if your partners do not post a request below, go to their profiles and do the best you can from the data found there, or send them a PM requesting their help.

I will angel this swap, but will publicize if you flake. Flakers will be banned from my future swaps, so plan ahead and don't join if you don't think you can meet the requirements.

Newbies welcome with a filled out profile and 5 snail-mail swaps and a 5 rating to their credit. Seasoned swappers must have a 4.9 rating. Contact me if you'd like an opportunity to prove yourself.

Communication is a wonderful tool so be sure to notify your partners and me if "life issues" get in your way and you are unable to send on time.

I would love any 1930's reproduction prints and if you don't have access to those, I love teal, aqua, or turquoise prints.

I'm watching for now @perkl8r :) I miss our lovely swaps.

KimberlyJDC 04/27/2010 #

I'm not too picky. Love bright colors like oranges and yellows (my profile has a pretty detailed list). I just LOVE fabric!

I am just learning to quilt and just learned what a fat quarter is last week! But I can't join this yet as I don't have any stashes built up to swap! Maybe soon!

VallesAvallonis 04/27/2010 #

@bookwormleah - one thing I do to build up a stash is join swaps like this, and buy 1/2 of a yard of 4 different fabrics, and just make FQ's out of those and then I have 4 new FQ's that I get to keep. :)

bookwormleah 04/27/2010 #

@VallesAvallonis - thanks for the tip - I will watch for now but may have to join!

This time around I'd like fabric with lettering on it - types, fonts, words, writing, newsprint, abstract, exotic or ununderstandable - something with letters of sorts. If that is not possible, I am into blue, tourqouise and purple and not at all into batiks :-)

VallesAvallonis 04/27/2010 #

@bookwormleah - yeah I'm watching too - hahaha I need to get the OK from hubs to go fabric shopping. Sigh - a one income house hold is difficult esp. when there are so many fabulous swaps I want to join! I also am just learning to quilt so the neat fabrics I've gotten are making me antsy to find time to sit down at my sewing machine again and get some work done!

I would prefer modern designed fabric. See my profile for Designers that I like. No country or florals please. When in doubt, just ask.

ChelelosGirl 04/29/2010 #

Anything pretty and colorful works for me! just a question though - can you buy pre-cut designer fat quarters at any old local craft store?? Mine has hundreds of precut selections, but I've never noticed any set apart from the rest. Just wondering...

The last Fat Quarter swap was soooo much fun! I LOVE tiny prints in colorful bright prints. They will be used for Blythe dolls which are 11.5" tall. Nice, tiny unique print!!!! More info available on my profile.

I prefer small prints and I like the colour old rose. I also enjoy florals and country prints.

mama2llama 05/ 2/2010 #

I just love fabric. so you can't go wrong. I really enjoy the different unique type of prints. Something you like and have no idea what to do with it. Well send it to me. ;0)

I am addicted to vintage / thrifted sheets and pillow cases with pretty florals. I love red, all shades of blue, GREEN (except mint and hunter), orange and yellow. I can handle pink and purple in smaller doses. If this is something you don't have or have time to find, I love 30's reproduction prints (I LOVE Aunt Grace patterns), cut animals, woodland themes, anything with numbers, POLKA DOTS (white dots with color background are my favs).

nanthom 05/ 3/2010 #

Any color is good. I love polka dots, batiks, and summer novelty prints. If possible no floral prints, love them but have an abundance of them right now. Thanks!!!

theycallmeWanda 05/ 4/2010 #

I am loving the new designers of modern fabrics these days (Amy Butler, Michael Miller, Heather Bailey, etc)! Dots, bright colors, no batiks or reproductions please. Anything orange, purple, lime green, pink & brown, funky & retro are the bomb! It's always fun to anticipate what you'll receive!! : )

mumbles17 05/ 4/2010 #

I really like pink and green, fun bright and happy prints....or pink/brown.... ...thanks so much !

koalascout 05/ 5/2010 #

open to any fabric, my favorite is western (cowboys and indians-native americans) and anything frosty the snowman or just cute snowman. if you like it then i will probably like it. SMALL doses of pink please.

koalascout 05/ 5/2010 #

ooppps.........also wild animals such as wolves, leopards, hawks, etc.....

SusanLS 05/ 6/2010 #

purple, blue, green, small prints, batiks, or just about anything!

I can work with any color you choose to send me. If I do not have something to match it right away, I will put in my ever growing "stash."
