There were 14 partcipants...24 swap packages and NO flakers or lost packages in the mail!  This swap is officially done!!!

I've left positive feedback for each of you Smiley  If you still see an "IN PROGRESS" in your swap profile for the "A 1/2 Dozen of Fat Quarters To Go!" Swap, holler at me!

Thanks for playing!  Kiss

okay that will work. I really like this idea! When are you going to start the swap!!

I guess that depends on whether there's sufficient interest to get it started in the first place  Undecided  If there isn't enough people particpating in an ongoing swap, the pickings get pretty slim...and the swap will progress really slowly Tongue  I'm gonna let this topic stew over the weekend and see what happens.  If we decide to go for it, I would love to start the swap sometime during the first week of April.

I would be interested in this one loves2experiment, what a great idea!
I may have a fat quarter or 50 to trade  Wink

ilovepaper, you have 50 options to offer?!?  *hyperventilates*  Oh my.

Oooh.  More fabric porn Wink  I like the FQ with blueberries on them!

I think that the idea of picking 2 FQs is brilliant!  I'm not quite sure about 5 FQs though  Undecided  As a non-quilter, I don't usually purchase fat quarters by the bundle...mostly because I never like the selections they offer.

To reiterate, I would definitely go for swapping 2 FQs!!! Cheesy




verycrafty, I don't have a Hancocks near me, so I don't have an answer for you.  However, it's easy enough to buy half a yard of fabric and cut that piece in half to get 2 pieces measuring ~ 18 inches x 22 inches.  Voia!  2 FQs!!

qazicat!!!  You're a fabric addict?!?  Hmmm...I guess it takes one to recognize another Wink  Regarding the issue of a potential tug-o-war for a prized fat quarter, it all boils down to who has the fastest internet connection and typing skills, LOL!     


verycrafty, yes you'll have to have access to a camera so that you can post pictures of your fabric FQs.  I've given more thought to it, and I'm thinking we might have to take pictures of the FQs in batches of fives (i.e. limit it to 2 picture files per post) so that we don't overload the system Tongue  If there's enough interest to start this swap, I think I'll have to either stick with fat quarters or half yard pieces.  It'll get too confusing if both sizes are being swapped Tongue  I thought of fat quarters...mostly because I'm sure we're more likely to have 10 fat quarters, rather than 10 half yard pieces lying around, waiting to be sent to a good home Cheesy

Here's more food fabric for thought...

I love fabric...and I'm pretty sure that there are others who share my addiction (I'm not naming any names here...Wink)!!

Anyhow, I wanted to find out if there is sufficient interest to do an ongoing type fabric swap, based loosely on the swap style used in "Ongoing Things I Can Make" swaps.

Here's what I was thinking.  The first person showcases 10 different fat quarters that they're willing to sacrifice trade.  When the second person claims a fat quarter from the first person, she would then have to showcase 10 fat quarters for another member to choose.  It wouldn't cost very much to pop the fat quarter in an envelope and ship it off to someone.  It might be a little more for international shipments, but if the fabric isn't too heavy, the cost should stay pretty reasonable.  If there is a lag, the last person who chose needs to add to what they are offering for shipment.  Rules such as "All particpants must be willing to make international shipments" and limitations on what types of fabrics may be listed would obviously have to be discussed if such a swap was organized. 

   

Your thoughts??
