    The reason that it is washed, dried and ironed is so that the other swappers know that it is done. After it is cut it can not be washed such as noodles. This way when the swappers use all of that months swap for one project, they don't have to worry about some of it shrinking and some of it not which could ruin their projects.

    A noodle is what makes up a jelly roll. It is a 2.5 inch strip by Width of the Fabric (WOF) which is between 40-44 " in length. The fabric for the swaps should be washed dried and ironed before being cut. This is so there is equal amount of shrinkage. So the 40-44" will vary. If you have any other questions please ask.

    The swap for April is any 100% cotton Noodle.

    Kyia :D

    I will probably be jumping into swaps at some point. My question is this- is it okay that I make my own noodles? I have remnants that I cut into noodles, charm squares, turnovers etc. I just sit down from time to time and start cutting away, then store them neatly. I cut very straight. Would something like this be okay, or when you swap noodles, are you guys wanting things like Moda's noodles or ones bought from the store??

    Camillacamilla, I make my own too. THe fabric needs to be washed, dried and ironed first before cutting. One yard should yield 14 strips. 2 you keep for sourself and then 12 you would send to me. But they do not need to be the same. There is a theme. Like last July we did purple. As long as you send me 12 purple strips it's good, they can be 12 different from diff. fabrics. Clear as mud?

    Thanks Kyiav10, that does make sense! I didn't know if it would be frowned on if you made the noodles yourself on not. I know some people have problems cutting strips and borders straight, but that actually is something I am good at, lol.

    A noodle is a strip of fabric that is 2.5 inches by WOF (width of fabric). WOF is usually between 40-44 inches long. WOF is selvage to selvage. If you have any other question just let me know.
