Fabric Fat Quarter Request Line R12

04-25-11 thru 05-14-11

The request line is once again open, with one change this time. Instead of sending two fat quarters to each partner, you will only send one. This is in an attempt to cut down on the international postage.

(Fat Quarter = a 18”X21-22” cut of 100% cotton fabric)

In this swap you will have two partners and send each partner 1 Fat Quarters of 100% cotton fabric. Please no recycled fabric, you should send new purchased FQ’s or you can cut the FQ’s from your stash of 100% cotton fabric. Cut as accurately as possible, so as not to cut less than 18”X21-22”. Larger cuts are welcome, but not less than 18”X21-22”. Be sure to list below your choice of color print, and try not to be too specific in order to make it easier for partners to meet your request.

Newbies are welcome with a completed profile, 5 snail-mail swaps under their belts, and at least a 4.9 rating. Yep, I check profiles before letting the computer assign the partners.

Questions, or concerns are welcome, just PM me.

Hi ya. I haven't done one of these fabric swaps before but when I saw a lot of you requesting 1930's fabric. I had to check it out. There's some really cute stuff out there!! I'm liking the pink and white small flowery types or the 1930's pinks or reds. Can we send more than one fat quarter if we want?

PixieFirefly 04/22/2011 #

Oh yeah, I like the sailor jerry type fabric too. :D

what is Line R12? im really new and i need help to understand - i have signed up for this swap but to whom am i sending fabric?

koalascout 04/25/2011 #

boy or boy related, snowmen, western/cowboy, native american (indian), koala, panda

koalascout 04/25/2011 #

R12 is round twelve

perkl8r 04/25/2011 #

thank you koalascout so much for your help in clarifing the R12...I also sent kranot1989 a PM to explain.

I wanted to express my happiness at all the new faces coming to check out this swap. I've sent PM requests to the following folks offering them the option to do a private swap with me instead of joining this swap so that they can begin to build their ratings and their number of completed swaps.

FabricHorder, heatherfeather022, and kranot1989

I will look forward to hearing from these new swappers and seeing them in future rounds of this swap series!

PixieFirefly, I hope you won't be disappointed if your partner isn't able to get the specific 1930's prints you've requested....as I'm sure you know not all prints are available at some fabric shops.

I love the sailorboy prints too but don't have access to them at my fabric shop. I'm thinking that the print that your partner picks for you will be something just as wonderful! I've never seen an ugly 1930's print!....how about you!

remember: " Be sure to list below your choice of color print, and try not to be too specific in order to make it easier for partners to meet your request."

perkl8r 04/26/2011 #

please remember that this round you only have to send ONE fat quarter to each partner!


PixieFirefly 04/26/2011 #

Oh, I will be happy whatever I get. I totally understand that not everything is available everywhere. I was just noting ideas. Thanks!

PixieFirefly 04/29/2011 #

Gonna try to get to Joann's this afternoon and get some fq's!!

PixieFirefly 05/ 1/2011 #

Items are packaged and will be sent Monday! I hope my partners will like what I got!
