Yes I am totally stealing this idea from www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/2008/05/vintage-sheet-patchwork-swap.html
but it sounds like it would so cool to do a swap like this.  I think what we could do is to instead of shipping to the organizer, we pick a number of fat quaters we would like to swap and then we mail them directly to a partner or partners. Time frame could be after school starts, and before the holiday season sets in, like Sept to end of Octoberish?  so we can get out and do some thrifting or shopping around to find vintagy sheets or pillow cases. 
Maybe we could speicify what we really do not want, like flowers, stripes, or character prints. 

I hope others would like to be invovled in this type of swap since I missed sign ups for the other vintage sheet swaps that I could find on the net!

hopefully we can get some more interest in this.  I found some cool sheets and have been slowly cutting them into FQ, which is a pain when you don't have a nice cutting board!

Hhhmmm, interesting...

I don't think I have any vintage sheets, but the idea sounds interesting.   I do have some vintage feedsacks I would be willing to swap, could the definition of the fabric be expanded to vintage fabric FQ?
