    I swapped with three from Australia, and one from Canada... I don't notice any difference in the fabrics from there.. I don't want to buy any fabric, but I do notice that there are more variety out west. I only have Joann's, and there are a couple of them. I like seeing the fabric before buying. I went to The city quilter in NYC, and was disapointed in the limited choices. I had a great time in Lancaster PA. I also ran into a couple of problems whe I was in the stores with sensory overload. There were too many choices, and I didn't buy much.

    So sorry, I won't be getting fabric from Malaysia to show you. The other swap I am in offers newbies an opportunity to receive squares. I was sending 2.5" squares to Malaysia, but won't get any back. Just helping out somebody who is just starting.

    ~ when i go to my lqs that happens to me also, sensory overload. i love everything!!!! so i usually just go over to the remnant bin or look on the mark down tables and purchase from there. it makes it easier on me.

    ~ ok on malaysia. so we won't get to see malaysian fabrics. maybe next time. i also swapped with australia and canada for the cq swap. well the fabrics i received was nothing i had in my stash before so it will all be different which is what i wanted. i am sewing so many strip sets for both of my psq's and i was buying so many 1/8 yard pieces to get different fabrics for them, it will be good to have so many other different pieces to sew together.
