INTERNATIONAL Fabric Swap

Fat Quarters of different fabric from different countries swap. I will never be able to travel the world, but I would really love to have fabrics from all over the world. What a neat quilt that would make!!! Are there any international quilters out there that would love to swap fabrics????

I thought we could run this for a while so we can utilize the sales for the holidays from now through Christmas. Sign-up will close on January 5, 2012. PM me if you wish to join.

You can send in as many different fat quarters as you would like. You will receive as many back as you send in. There is no limit.

ADDING A SIGNATURE scrap with the fabrics. It was suggested that we add a small scrap of fabric signed by us and where we are from, to go with each FQ. One for each of your FQ's. That way who ever gets your fabric would have a signature scrap to go with it. I would LOVE to include the signature scraps with my quilt that I will be making from the international fabrics. I would feel like each person is a part of my quilt. The scraps can be a scrap big enough to sign our name, board name, and where we live. They can be any size!!!! Or you can choose to make a block if you want. This could take place of marking EACH ONE of your fabrics with a little slip of paper. It is totally up to you.

Please mark EACH ONE of your fabrics with a little slip of paper. Please include your real name (optional), Board name, and the country it is from.

Please put your fat quarters into the mail no later than January 10, 2012. Please pm me for my address. If there is going to be a problem with having them here by the deadline, please pm me. You also have the option of dropping out of the swap.

I will mail them back out by January 30, 2012 or as close to that as possible.

Send them to me along with a self-addressed, stamped envelope for return postage... whatever it cost to send it to me, it will cost to return them back to you...so be sure to put enough postage on your envelope.

Please review the rules that apply to all swaps. They apply to this swap, too. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

(one exception - swappers are not required to prewash the FQ. It's recommended, but not mandatory.)

I have a question. Are you making a specific size for the fat quarters? Why I am asking, because I have noticed that JoAnn's fat quarters are 17" x 21", I do not know what Walmart size is and others are 18 x22". Thanks.

If you are getting FQ's already pre-cut then it would be whatever they are. I really never noticed the difference in sizes. :oops: I guess I am goofy!!

Blessings!!

i would be interested but i don't see any international people signing up.

should we just send fabric that has an international feel since the swap hasn't really attracted people from other countries.

H'mmm, this sounds like an interesting Swap. I see there are currently eleven participants. Could you make a column indicating what Country/Ethnicity/Culture is being swapped by each person? That would help stimulate interest and fire up the imaginations, I believe. For example, I'm in Michigan, but I might want to send in some Japanese kimono cotton, but it is traditionally 13-14 inch width, based on the size of the loom. Would this qualify?
