    I'd be interesting in joining a swap for 4 inch or larger sizes blocks.
    I love making scrappy quilts and always love having new material to work with.
    I am not perfect and I do not make perfect quilts.
    I do make quilts with love and they are meant to be loved.
    If i can transfer those feelings with needle and thread,
    that makes me happy.

    Rhona, I can do scrap squares in whatever size anyone else wants to do.
    I would prefer to do cotton, or cotton blends. I am open to colors or combos
    of colors.
    Come on scrappy makers, here is a fun way to trade fabric!

    I'm interested! I would like to swap strings of various widths (not smaller than 1.5 x7) with someone. That way I could make string quilts, or cut the strings down into smaller pieces as I need or want. I'm not interested in cutting squares at this point--I'm in 3 other swaps for squares and FQs.

    Only 100% cotton.

    This sounds great!

    I would be most interested in strings, same as zozee. Minimum of 1.5" x 7".

    But, I will add that I'm a nut about using every last bit of fabric. I have sorted bins with crumbs and strings that are an inch or less, and have started cutting and stacking 1" squares. So, I'll trade with anyone with a similar obsession! Or, if you just throw those away anyway, throw them my way...I'll pay postage!

    So we have these swaps available. I can swap with anyone.
    You will have to discuss how many scraps you are swapping. That is between the swappers

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I'll be happy to swap with you Flowergurl

    Flowergurl ---- scrap squares in whatever size cotton / cotton blend /any colors

    Rhonda -------- I'll be happy to swap sq
    uares any size you like.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    You two can swap then
    zozee -- --------
    strings of various widths (not smaller than 1.5 x7)

    pinkflowers ----
    strings of various widths (not smaller than 1.5 x7)

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I've been given alot of scraps that some of them I can't use. so I am able to send most anything except batiks /civil war/ etc.

    I may jump in the strings swap. Depends on how soon you want to mail. I don't have any cut but am willing to cut them.

    So swappers you can talk to each other and see when you want to mail and the amt of scraps you want to send.

    If anyone knows of anyone who could really use a helping hand with scraps or fabric let me know. I like to help someone who can't afford much. I started out not being able to afford anything but yard sale clothes I had in a closet when I taught myself to quilt in 1980

    QuilterMomma does the quilt over the long arm have blocks in it that we traded with each other? I am on my phone so it is hard to see. I just wondered if you ever used those blocks. You know I made a lap quilt out of mine and use it all the time. Loved those blocks.

    No Anna, those are just from my scraps. The blocks we traded are in a quilt that I made queen size and is on my guest bed. I admire it every time I open the door to the room. I used everyone of them we traded and then from the swap we did as well. Plus, I had to make a couple more to have enough.

    I have a fondness for hearts. Mom reminded me it's time for me to make more hearts for her. I make hearts and stuff them with stuffing. she likes to give them to family and friends. My uncle stopped the other day and took some of what she had left so now she needs more LOL Some of the velveteen ones we glued old jewelry to. Those are the ones he took I think. I'll have to see if I have any jewelry left. I cleaned out a lot of stuff and may have gotten rid of it. My favorites are the pieced hearts. Some are confusion(my version of crazy quilting) and some are strips.

    Of course the hearts in the basket are little ones. They vary from 1 3/4" down to 3/4". I do love my minis! Velveteen makes it possible as it stretches really well. I have done cotton ones but not 3/4" maybe 1 1/2" on those.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
