I've only done this swap for a few months and she has had some varied and open to interpretation themes too. She could also have Feb. have a "president" theme since President's day is in Feb. -but not sure how that would fit for international-maybe English swappers would do royals.
    Unless it is too overwhelming for Brenda to get suggestions on the thread here I would guess it is where folks could suggest themes. I really liked last August's theme -I think it was Summer or what summer means to you.

    Anyway as hostess the theme is Brenda's call.

    Now I better get my pm sent to Brenda.

    I think I'm going to join in this month, I don't have much Valentine's fabric. I'd like to do two sets.

    I like the themed because I don't have any themes. So I buy 1/2 yard and have some for myself and my swap.

    I like the themes and what uncommon themes could we get? the color of your favorite wines/ blue unicorns? I mean how uncommon is there and who has five of them if they are uncommon? ok like the color of all of your pets. give me valentines day anytime and st patricks or easter or spring if you dont do easter then that leaves what april showers so rain? and may day some german ribbon fabric? and june bugs only bugs.. those would be uncommon. valentines can be something like red purple pink white black hearts roses flowers candy fabrics surely there as so many that are valentines that are not valentines right?

    I have lovely valentines sitting on my iron board waiting to go out. and only one says valentines the rest are just ones that work with the theme. Anyone want some? lol come and gettem! I love novelty fabrics so you cant miss with me.

    IMHO .... what about themes of stripes, batiks, plaids or specific colors (like blues or yellows or browns or greens) or maybe colors of fire or kids prints or flowers or transportation or subdued colors or colors of the sky..... I could go on and on with a variety of themes. I like holidays, just like creativity more; guess I'll have to be content with creative fabrics for holidays.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I just joined for the first time this month, so don't know what previous themes have been. I'm working on a black and white quilt, would love a b/w print swap, same with red and white.

    I heard the flu is pretty bad this year, even if you did get the flu shot, different strain. I'm interested in this months swap.

    Brenda, I gotta' put in my 2 cents. I hope you leave it just the way you've been doing it. It's been easy to put together fabric and I have been able to use most of it, if I found a piece I couldn't I can always pass it on and hope someone else can. Please don't change, it's perfect the way it is.

    Hi everyone...just to let everyone know...sometimes we do things like colors or batiks (that was one of the summer month ones actually)...we've also done senders choice...we just happen to be in the midst of several holidays
