    I was responding to the thread it general, but I would be up for a swap too. It depends on the time frame. I just got a new maching and learning to use it.

    Judy-68 there are no rules, you can just follow, you can sign up to swap scraps or to follow along on Rhonda's quilt along with scraps, you can make comments and post pictures. Hope this helps.

    So, do we just contact our swap partner and decide on the swap between ourselves?

    I would just keep them separate. They can be hard to use as a "color" I've found. You might call them your focus fabrics box. That'll help you think about how to use them effectively also.

    the scrap swap is simple. You get a partner and you and your partner decide what you are swapping. This way each one gets what they need and can send what they want to send.

    I am starting a new list for an item swap. Let's start with a quilt block swap and then change the item for the next one. I can make one swap an anything goes swap and one swap could be a mugrug swap.

    ITEM SWAP - QUILT BLOCK

    You will get a partner and you can exchange addresses.
    PLEASE HAVE YOUR QUILT BLOCK FINISHED BEFORE YOU SIGN UP
    When you get your partner then you can mail out.

    Let's aim for Feb 6 as the deadline to mail. that gives you 10 days. This is not set in stone however. If I need to change it I can. I just don't want to drag it out too long.

    You can make a controlled scrappy quilt block as in the ones I post for the quilt along or you can do a one patch scrappy quilt block. anything is fine as long as it is scrappy controlled or not.

    I have a scrappy fall quilt block I made with fabric from my less than f8ths piles. its ruby fall tones however and its 12.5 inches. would make a lovely little mat for a small table I am in for one swap. is that controlled block scrappy enough or does it have to be your blocks Rhonda? I think this is a pretty nice block and heck if you only have one it will be scrappy by the time its incorporated for sure.

    I am in for the next swap of parter agreed swap and also in for a mug rug scrappy spring

    I don't understand what you are using the adding machine paper for.

    Here are a couple of blogs I found that have great scrappy ideas!!

    http://niftyquilts.blogspot.com/2010_10_01_archive.html

    this one fascinates me! She used a tumbler template to make this one.
    Sorry the size is what she used.

    And another one I really liked. I found these on Pinterest and went back to the original blog owner so I could give credit where due.
