So I squeezed in at the last minute to join this swap! Basically, what I’m to do is cut up vintage sheets into fat quarters (22″ x 18″) . Each Swapper sends Gail return postage and up to 50 Fat Quarters that they would like to swap. After she receives every one’s fat quarters, she will send each swapper an assortment of fat quarters equal to the number they sent her.
I’m sending Gail 38 fat quarters from 3 different sheets. I’m planning to make quilts for my two youngest daughters beds with all the pretty fabric I get back.
Here’s the fat quarters I’m sending. I bought the first two, and the last one is from my Oma. She was cleaning out her linen closet a few years ago and I was lucky enough to get it… holes and all! I had to cut around them because, really, who would want to get a FQ with holes in it! (not me!!!)
Look at all my leftovers! I kept enough fabric from the two on the bottom so I can make a couple of aprons.
And for Jennifer from http://lipstickandlaundry.blogspot.com/ , here’s your sneeky peek at what I’m sending you for our apron swap! (ha ha! not much of a peek, huh? you’ll just have to wait ’till it gets there!) ;o)
One more thing…
All four of my daughters and I have joined a Christmas Stocking Swap!
