Then I either put them off for one reason or another or sign up for another swap. I bought fabric to make a quilt for us, and a throw blanket for my best friend. I just can't decide on a design for either of them. It's easy to procrastinate and pile up projects, and fabric, when you can't decide what exactly you want to do.

    Going to start stuffing my box today. My Sis brought over 3 more tubs of my mothers stash. In the first box I found several blocks that she had done. I can't wait to put them in a memory quilt. what a wonderful surprise. I haven't opened the other two bins yet.

    I'd like to join this time with 2 boxes. One box packed and one in the works. I was too involved last time to join in the fun.


    No color preferences, prefer no Christmas or holiday fabrics. Am alergic to smoke and perfumes. Dog and cats are OK.

    Okay, I went through my scraps, and pulled out enough to fill 3 boxes. Two of the boxes contain all scraps (lots of strips), and one box contains about 2/3 scraps and the rest is yardage. I saw everything from 30's repro fabrics to batiks to you-name-it! I tried to leave out anything smaller than a couple of inches square or strips less than 1" wide (nearly all are 1-1/2" or more).

    So ... if there are more people who want to swap scraps, I can do up to 3 boxes (paulswalia is already my partner for one of them). They're packed up and ready to ship. BOY, are they full, and they're all the larger medium boxes!

    Here's a quilt I made with my scrap strips awhile back. I'd been saving them to make another one, but I just don't have time at the moment. By the time I do get to it, I'm sure my scrap pile will be huge again. But this can give a general idea of the types of scraps I'm sending. Pretty much everything but the kitchen sink!

    Oh Boy, Moonrise.......I'm really ready now - looks like the sky's the limit!!! I've been tossing things in the box almost every day when I find something that I wonder "what was I thinking?" about.

    Got my box ready. Variety of fabric. At least 1/2 yd. to 1 yd. I didn't include any holiday fabric, nor scraps. Prefer receiving no holiday or scraps. Put in a very small amount of notions. I'm a non smoker and have no pets. Can't wait to find out who my partner is.

    I've been picking fabrics for my box - a few large scraps, some 5" strips, fat quarters, 1/2 yard pieces, and a couple of yard pieces. Still have more cupboards/closets to go through yet, but it's helping me tidy up and find fabrics I had forgotten about. That's the good part - the bad part is it is making me antsy to make a trip to my local quilt shop. In fact, I was just told about a new one that opened 10 minutes from me just recently!

    My box is going to be a very ecletic choices of fabrics. I just purged a lot of disney girlie-princess fabrics that may go in with the bandanna yardage & other fabrics.

    Thanks again for the comments on my scrappy strip quilt.

    I still have one box that contains about 2/3 scraps and about 1/3 yardage, if anyone wants to swap with me. Mine are all the bigger medium-size boxes, and are stuffed as tight as I can get them and still be able to (barely!) get the box closed.
    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here. Please note that I'm usually unavailable on weekends, but I'll get back to you on Monday.
