Do you have a stash of fat quarters that you’ve been waiting to cut into? Do you enjoy making quick projects and receiving fun crafts? Why not join the Craft with a Fat Quarter Swap Round 3?!

I have a question already! (Organizing greenhorn and fat quarter newbie here...)

Would anyone NOT be okay with receiving fabric cut to the size of a fat quarter? Or are we swapping the packaged & labeled little cuties only? I'm thinking if I find something I just know you'll love, but it's only available by the yard, I'd just buy half a yard (or more...  Wink) and cut that to size.

Here in Germany (or at least here in Bremen, where I do most of my fabric shopping), and more specifically in most of the fabric places I know) fat quarters are not always to be had. "Not always" not meaning "not in all the fabrics" but "some shops don't carry them at all."

Ordering some wouldn't be a problem of course, as the crafting period is really long.

You are very welcome to cut your own fat quarters. As long as it is 18"x22" it is fine with me.

Well, then if the two of us get partnered up I know which two fabrics to send. For aspenwall and all who'll follow I'll need to do some stalking. Wink

Hi all!  I sent in my questionnaire  Grin

I too would be perfectly happy with fabric that is cut to size rather than prepackaged.  Sometimes people can find the neatest stuff when doing it that way!
