Let the trades continue!
Here it is again... another thread full of people willing to share and swap. Tell us what you are looking for, what you no longer want... just come and have fun!

OK... here it is. A place to get rid of some of YOUR scraps and no longer wanted yardage in exchange FOR something you DO want!

Please use the following format.
I WANT...
I HAVE... unless you specify, it is assumed this is 100% cotton and suitable for quilting.

If the fabric is NOT prewashed, please state that. When you are NO longer interested in trading, simply delete your post. If you have a new want, repost do not edit unless it is for qualification sake. That way "read new posts" will still be a good way to check updates.

You can exchange precut 5" charms blocks or anything else if you can find a willing exchange partner. You are responsible for having your address in the address exchange. It is a matter of trust and preference if someone will or will not trade with you. If you are NOT a member, and have not established yourself, you might have trouble finding trades. Ok, let the fun begin!!

Please post feedback so people can determine who is a "good trader" and who may be experiencing some issues.


RECAP as I currently know it for IN SEARCH OF: ANY updates quilters???


Mojoquilter/ Sonja white and/or cream tone-on tones TRUE red and white (NO other colors in the print) Dark Autumn stones: dk blue, greens, burnt orange, red, black & dk purple, beige & neutrals, ALL at least 8x8

Quilterbdsr5/ Barb: White and/or cream neutrals and tone-on-tones

BarefootT/ Thunder - Dog prints and other 'kiddie' and juvenile prints for the quilts she donates. Scraps as small as 1.5 inches for a postage stamp quilt

Quilter: WANTS nothing at this time!!! LOL

Mittsy: donates baby quilts to a neonatal center AND working on a placemat project

Abbisgranma/ Marion: does not need anything at the moment... maybe later!

Siliolegma: None stated yet?

Psychw2/ Pat: Scraps in pinks or lime greens, black&whites." Safari or jungle animal prints, they need only be 5 x 5 or bigger.

FLStu: Black & White and Black&White&Red prints, especially positive and negatives (reversal of colors on same print)

Taters55: nothing stated at the moment.

A big thank you to all the generous people who have so willingly shared their bounty!!! Barb and Karen especially! Most of us have benefited from their generousity. I hope we are all current with our postage costs, either in "advance" or "after you get your package" however any fellow quilter prefers to handle their postage expenses.

Are there any changes to the above "Want list" that I need to edit???

And here is the thread for the RESULTS: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1122524/

The company that used to work my husband until 11 PM and then have him back on shift at back at 7AM to 3 PM or another favorite, work until 11 PM and have another shift from 3PM to 11PM and a special mandatory meeting at 10 AM, that used to frost me!! WHEN did they expect him to sleep? Everyday I am grateful he no longer works there.

Laura (Housse) sent me fabric that included some BRIGHT lime greens (to go in the 'cat quilt') and strips of brown fabric and a really nice sage green that will look great with the animal fabric.

Is anyone up for a challenge? I'm not, so...

I got some FQ's in a bulk purchase that are either bum ugly or I'm sure that I will never use them.

Honest to pete, there are a couple of these that I can't even imagine in a string quilt. We're talkin' ugggggggggleeeeeeeee. Anyone want to give them a try?

I don't want anything for them - I just want to not have to move them out of my way every time I go to do something. :) Anyone want to try to make silk purses? (Though, realistically, some of these don't even rise to the level of "sow's ears." :D )

Psych are you looking for any specific types of greens? I have been collecting fabrics for an applique quilt and that will have a lot of tone-on-tone and small prints and blenders. I might have some extras in there.

I've been throwing all the greens that have come my way from my sister's garage sale stuff etc into one bin. I'll make a scrappy quilt out of it one of these days! ANY green is fine as long as it's basically "all green"; meaning green and black plaid is ok, or white and green print, TOT, blenders etc but not a green foliage with pink flowers. I'm probably not making myself very clear!! What you described is perfect.

I don't think I could find a use for miniature beer steins if I quilted for a hundred years. And that world map thing - ugh! A couple of them were okay, but they don't fit with anything else I have.

I'm glad they got there so quick, though. If nothing else, you can use them as foundation fabric for string quilts. :)

Jean/Quilter, the BIG squishie envelope came today with all the beautiful fabrics in it. LOTS of greens and lovely teals! The giraffe fabric is so pretty. I don't think it will make it into my current Safari print, the beautiful teal does not harmonize well with the other fabrics but it is certainly going into something beautiful I'm sure!!! THANKS so much!

The other wild animal print goes REALLY well with some other jewel tones fabrics I have. I think I'll likely combine them for a lap blanket for the assisted living facility where I visit.

I'm thinking the beer steins & globes would go nicely in a QOV -as background - manly, a bit different, & the right colors!!!!!
The hats, florals, & polka dots will be nice for a Downey/Childrens quilt.

That leaves just the black & beige floral needing a purpose.

I was gifted with this fabric a year or so ago. I think there are at least 6 yards if not more. It is wrapped 18 times around the bolt cardboard. I'm a pretty good crammer so I think it might go into a medium flat rate box, but not sure as I don't have one at the moment. The pattern is burgandy and hunter green. I'll get a medium box first chance I get and edit message. Let me know if you need exact yardage.

Ok, I'll give it a go . . .

I WANT... looking for Disney type material. My sister is big into Disney cruises, and she's already planning for the next one. She wants to make something called a fish extender . . . which I hadn't heard of, until she showed me the link to the forum where all the Disney cruisers post . . . She likes fireworks, too . . . so if there are any Disney materials with fireworks, that'd be fantastic. Yardage . . . pattern calls for 1/4 yard, then smaller pieces from there.

I HAVE... a great variety of fat quarters . . . or postage, if I have nothing that someone wants . . .

Silio... Maybe try a quilting cruise. I haven't yet, but I have been on a seminar cruise where I was in lectures when we did the 'cruise' portion. It may not be for your companion, if you bring one, but there are usualy other things that you can do besides sit poolside. Cruises aren't for everyone, that's true. However, once in a while I don't mind doing nothing and just relaxing. It's so rare to be able to do.

Between last Sunday and today, the fabric department has reappeared. Don't see the $1 0r $2 cheepies, but most of the $4.44 and $5.55/yd are of decent quality and a lot of fun prints. Maybe most not for my regular quilts, but for runners, dog covers and mats, charity quilts,etc, they're very decent.

Last year the tent sale at Keepsake had $1.00 fat quarters. I selected a lot of them. Didn't have them this year and prices were pretty high, no real bargains. The porch boxes were a bust as the "gimme hoarders" took everything and didn't share. No fun, at all.

I know what it is Pat but I'll let Mittsy explain. She's much better at that. Let me just say this. I've found myself being disappointed in Keepsake lately and I can't really put my finger on why. I don't know if it is the people there or the lack of consideration by the customers. But it is different.

When Keepsake has their giant once a year tent sale, you line up two hours (or more) before the tent is opened for business. To keep you entertained the employees bring out cardboard boxes filled with fabric for you to pick through while you are waiting in line on the porch. You can buy a quart bag for $5.00 and put as much fabric in it as possible. Last year 2010, this was the most fun! This year NOT! The early line up people literally took all the boxes and hoarded it until they picked it over and took everything they wanted. Last year we "helped" other people in line search for things they wanted, and it was very different, nice and friendly. If you mentioned that you'd like fruit fabric then every piece of fruit fabric that surfaced, you were asked did you want this one? It was wonderful! If you said you needed various greens, then we all offered you the greens. It was just FUN! Suitable for Quilts of Valor, she got first pick. This is a picture of the porch.

Some things I'm less willing to give up than others and if I don't have to, it's even better. It's hard to be at this time of our life and not have what we had planned so carefully for. Along with many others this sad economy has turned our life upside down.

Anyone have any bright coloured/patterned fleece? I'm making 16 patch blocks for lap blankies for our church's cry room (behind the Sanctuary). The squares I make the blocks out of are under 4" square. A bunch of leftover fleece was given to me by my cousin, Cher, and a lot of it was browns, dark blues, dark greens, burgundy and black. There is a bit of the yellows, whitels, pinks, grays, and light greens, but not much. I'd like cheerful fleece to balance it out. I don't need much, and they don't have to match. This is a crazy quilt, of same size pieces I'm putting together, but no specific colour patterning.

I'd never bought any fleece before, either. It was only my cousin giving some to me that caused me to think "out of the box" and create this soft blankie for the church's cry room.

I bought a funky piece of flannel, 3 yards worth for $1.50 from a yard sale last weekend. It's mint green with bacon and eggs print on it. I think it will make an acceptable man's lap quilt size rag quilt of denim and flannel.

usually all made up of all of the fabrics in a "collection" most jelly rolls have 40 - 42 strips
honey buns similar
layer cakes are usually about 42 pieces
charms are often 42 pieces, but the amount varies with how many fabrics in a collection, and with manufacturer

have you been to the Moda bake shop???
http://www.modabakeshop.com/ they have lots of great free patterns, you may have to sign in?? I don't remember?? but it is free...

Pat, once we move all our rooms around I will look to see what I have for iSpy. We have a lot of neat fabrics like that and I am sure I have some that would be great for you. It may be a few weeks before I can reach them, but I will look.

Does anyone have any camouflage cotton fabric or know where I can get some? I can't find anything local, and guess I am not looking online in the right places?
Something like this one, and two or three other fabrics to go with it. 1 yard of each would be enough.

I'm changing sewing area again!!! I have a bit of scraps of "Warm and Natural" and "Warm and White". Most are pieces that were cut from a finished quilt. I usually send way too much to the quilter and she saves as much as possible and then sends it back to me. I know a few of you are interested int doning the quilt as you go blocks and these scrapps may work for you. If you are interested, I'll send for price of shipping. Let me know...(I have a totes worth of these...)

They run from about 4'' wide up to about 8 maybe 10"" There are also some triangles and odd pieces that don't make quite a 12.5" block. I was going to use that tape they have now for joining batting but I have almost two full rolls of batting as it is. If nobody wants it, I'm just going to toss it. Thought I'd ask first since it is W&N and W&W.

Barb... you can also use the Batting scraps by doubling or tripling the batting and making Christmas pads for your four legged family using scraps. I like to take my scraps and woops blocks and just add and square , working from the center out... kinda like a crazy quilt. I can use up a bunch of left-overs that way.

Yes, Stuart, I used to "weave" them into a mat, make the top and botton and then sew thru them to keep them from shifting. I would use up my batting scraps that way and my jean scraps. I made a LOT of doggy kennel pads that way for friends of mine. Guess I just hate to waste anything!

If you get no takers Barb let me know and I'll see if I can find someone closer to you that might want them.

I posted a while back about Men's ties and got No takers... *sigh*. I might just sort them and pull anything that could be combined for red/white/blue and see if I can't come up with a tote.

I just ordered the backing for a BIG quilt for kid #2. I would love to have it for his Christmas or Bday (Feb) but I doubt I'll even have all the fabric collected by then!

The grandson leaves today so I can be take down the single bed, and set back up my sewing table. He's been fun to have but I've been chaffing at the restricted space and having to put my work away between sewing!!!
