    I haven't heard of one! But would love a "cookbook" swap! Because all 'quilters' cook!!

    I think both would be good and maybe 2 Inch block for a postage stamp quilt.

    What do you use for the magnet? Do you get those magnet strips that are sticky on one side?

    I would love to do this too! Maybe like a recipe card swap? Sounds like a ton of fun. I love to cook! Don't tell my sewing machine but I think I might love my kitchen aide more lol.

    i buy magnets at michaels about 50 for $5/ but use my 1/2 off coupon., or recycle shower curtain magnets, ( 3 in a $1/ shower curtain liner. or cut up the ones you get for business cards).
    i use scraps of fabric, and seed beads, amd decorated them up for the holidays
