Over the past few months I've been completely bitten by the quilting bug meaning that I can't get enough new fabric. And, it doesn't have to be huge pieces.

Of course those jelly rolls and charm square packs are enticing, but they can be quite costly.

Here's what I'm thinking:

1. Rather than having to create the standard pack size (40 strips or 40 squares) we'd cut it in half. So, you would either be swapping 20 strips of fabric (2 1/2-inches by width of fabric) or 20 squares (5 inches square)

2. You could sign up for up to 3 partners and have whatever mix you want. Three charm packs? OK. Two jelly rolls and a charm pack? Sure

3. There would be a rule that you could have no more than 2 strips/squares of the same fabric.

4. Prints only. No solid colors.

Unsure what a jelly roll/charm square pack is. You can find out more here:

Of course, they're usually done along the lines of a theme/specific fabric line, but I'm thinking we'd do something much more random.

I love this idea and I started a thread with this same idea, but a little bit different, more round robin style.
