what about instead of just swapping fabric creating something from scrap fabric and then sending it out?

the thing is, most people like to swap scraps to inject new material into their stash, it works like a compost heap, you keep turning it over and you get new, fertile soil every time.

How big is a "scrap"? Also, how many scraps would we send?

so I was thinking...
maybe it could be a round robin (??) swap where I fill a box full of scrap fabric and send it to a person in the swap, then they take out what they want and replace what they took with fabric scraps they have and send the box on to another swapper and so on until the box gets back to me Cheesy
does that make sense?

sizes for scrap fabric would depend on who is in the swap... if there are a lot of quilters or people who make doll clothes then the scraps could get pretty small (4" square or even smaller) otherwise maybe it would probably be 12" squares

what do you gals think?

IMHO, it is better to assign partners. any size scraps work for me.

This sounds really interesting.  I agree that partners would be better than round-robin style.  The round-robin sounds really fun, but one flaker would ruin the entire swap.

that's a good point!

I'm really anxious to do this swap but I think signups will have to wait until after the holidays unless people are willing to squeeze it in beforehand

Count me in. I am always stalking the remnant bins. You can never have too much fabric!
