Kristen81, could you please post a larger pic of #11 ? I think I might want to claim that, but I can't really tell. Since my mind is set on metric.. what is exacty 15"x60"? a half yard? :-p Oh, and what do you mean by suiting? Is it cotton, wool or poly?
Thanks!!!! mata

Accordng to the wondrous google, 15 inches = 38 cm and 60 inches = 150 cm, I.e. a standard long roll full width.

ok! so now all i need to know is if it's cotton, wool, or something else, and a more detailed pic :-)
I was just checking out www.fabrictales.com and I think I'll have to order something... although just yesterday I made another order from www.fabric.com :-p With the excuse that I can't go shopping cause I have to study, I end up shopping online.. hehe  Grin

Floral one, cotton pillowcase

I didn't realise pillowcases were acceptable!  I'll potter through my pillowcase stack tonight some time and update my list.

well I know a half yard is 18'' XD i.e. 47cm.
Full width quilters cotton is 44'' i.e. 110cm.
so an FQ is half the width and half a yard, for quilters cotton that's 18''x22'' i.e. 47cm x 55cm

and HERE's the convertor I tend to use between metric and whatchamacallit

*nods*  Keying something like '18 inch in centimetre' into google will also pop out a result directly.  It does most things that a calculator does, as well as conversions - you just need to make sure you don't pluralise the units i.e. metre as opposed to metres.

Whenever I get to pick again (soon I hope!) can I offer up a clean pair of jeans as a FQ choice?

I didn't realise pillowcases were acceptable!  I'll potter through my pillowcase stack tonight some time and update my list.

I'm alright with that, as long as you're able to offer an equivalent of a FQ or 1/2 yard piece from that pillowcase Smiley  Be sure to state clearly that the fabric piece will come from a pillowcase.  Some folks would consider that vintage material, and then there are folks who would not like to receive fabric pieces that are 'repurposed'.  If you plan on offering vintage material, please make sure that the fabric is clean before sending it to your partner! 

Same response to the question about 'clean jeans as FQ'. 

Having said that, please do not offer vintage pieces as your only fabric options for claim!  When you're posting fabric choices, try to offer a variety of fabric selections (vintage, new, cottons, flannels, polyester blends, silks, etc.).  If the swap idles for a day or so, the last person who posted should add to the list of fabrics they are offering.

NOTE: The following edit has been added to the first post of this swap (after Rule #7).



Edit:  There have been questions about what types of fabrics are acceptable.  I have posted a comment here.  There is really no hard or fast rule for this.  Some people like vintage fabric, and others don't.  It would be easy enough to make the rule that all fabric pieces have to be NEW.  I won't do that.  Instead, I ask that all swap participants be considerate and offer fabric selections that others would want to claim.  Make sure that you're offering a variety (i.e. not ALL vintage pieces).  Another good rule of thumb to follow is this: If you're offering a piece of fabric to "simply get rid of it", it's probably not a good thing!!  Similarly, if you're looking to trade junk for treasure, that's not a good thing either!!  Like I've mentioned before, it's common sense...really.

Haha...I believe Kristen81's stash is up for grabs Smiley  You've got time.  BTW, did you get that Strawberry Nesquik Syrup?  I had it for breakfast this morning, and I remembered our banter about soymilk and syrups Cheesy
