    Has anybody noticed that pre-cut fat quarters measure a scant 18" X 21" these days? Why do I continue to cut mine a generous 18" x 22" or larger?

    Yes i have noticed that also. Most real quilt shops stay with the 18 X 22, but walmart, Ben franklin, Joannes, Hobby lobby... they are stocking msaller... I Just don't buy them! Most of the NON-quilt shops are stocking lower quality of fabric and selling them for alomost the same as Q shops... that's not right.. Here in our area WA. fats are 3.00. No way is the fabric at walkmart worth 3.00. Careful ladies and gents at what you buy if you want good quality.

    Ladies, for those of you who inquire about my condition, greenini aka JO introduced me to a site you can visit daily for updates about my condition. You can go HERE to stay tuned on what's going on and I won't have to keep repeating the same story over and over. Thanks JO (greenini) for the site and all of you who have shown concern.

    I actually have been cutting most of mine bigger than the 18x22, to make up for any pre-cuts I may also be sending that are smaller...lol...don't have any "reasoning" behind it, just what I do...

    Well, if mine are like 19x23 or 24 I leave it and send it on. Not going to shave that little bit down to get it exact.

    same here ... I'd rather send more than less.
    Got my summer fabrics gathered and bought, just need to wash fabric and cut and then wait for name. I'm excited to see who gets these .... and what they do with them. That's the best part of this swap.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    some input please. I have a few prints for a summer theme, but would it be better to send all prints or a mix of prints and tone on tone/textures?
    Have 5 prints, but none would actually 'go' together (due to poor selection at several not so Quilt stores)
    any input welcome

    I will be combining a variety of fabrics .... from prints to batiks to whatever. I don't think they have to go together, just follow the theme somehow. Some of the fabrics I've received in the past have not been complementary ... and that's ok with me. It's good to have a variety of fabrics in your stash. Friends here have helped get outside my box ... really appreciated! Do what you want.

    Go look at earlier threads at the pictures of what other people have sent and received. Maybe this will give you some ideas.

    I have been sending fabrics that go with the monthly theme, but not necessarily together...I really didn't think about matching them all...lol...guess its because at my lqs where I belong to a great group, my "quilty sisters" are always telling me to quit being so "matchy matchy"...and try new things...really its just that I am picking out fabrics that match the monthly theme, and just sending that way...I think whatever you decide to do is fine...we are all pretty easy-going around here and just enjoying the fun and mystery of the swap!
    Regards,

    I can't remember how many I signed up for, but
    have most of the fabric "picked" out.
