Quilt With Us

Hi Everyone, it's been years but I use to belong to a quilt group and we would do fabric swaps, gadget swaps, block swaps and just about any other kind of swap.... are there any of these going on? If so can someone point me in the right direction? I absolutely loved doing these swaps. Thanks!!

We could start off with a fq swap and see how that goes. Then we could possibly do a gadget/pattern/thread/needles swap... like making a little surprise package that we would send to each other. Way I'm thinking is everyone signs up.. we set a deadline to have the fq's to me.. I will then mix them all up (making sure no one receives their own back) and ship them off to their new owners. When/if we do a gadget swap, we can use things in our quilting rooms or we can set a price limit on the items, again whoever wants to play will have to sign up... I can or someone else can take all the sign ups and pull names..... assigning each of us a lady to send our surprise package too. Starting this evening thru Sunday I'm going to be pretty busy but if you all are interested in a fq swap then send me an inbox with your name, mailing address so I can go ahead and have that. Once everyone signs up... we can either come up with a theme for the fq's (batiks, florals, blenders, etc) and how many fq's we want to trade. How's this sound? If anyone has other ideas I'd love to hear them!! Oh and did the above make sense? LOL

I like the idea of a fat quarter swap. This could be a great way of seeeing what others have in differernt areas of the country/world. I friend just brought me back 2 FQ from Alaska and I was totally thrilled as I have nothing like them in my stash from my Florida shops.

Your ideas sound interesting! Keep us posted! The only thing I have swapped is blocks, other little items sounds like fun too.

I sure will Gayle. For a block swap I'd like to have at least 10-12 people. If we do a fq/thread swap we can have less than that. And we don't even have to include thread.. it could be some other little gadget, even ones you have laying around that you don't use anymore or not going too. Kind of like recycling. But we can all discuss this if we can get several people that are interested in doing a swap.

Maria, let me know what and when and "maybe" I will be able to join in your swaps.  I love some of the ones I have been in but I have never did one with any thing other than fabric or blocks.

Hi Sheila! If I can get enough people to join (at least 12) then I'll host a swap. I've really missed doing them! Will let you know if we get enough to do one!

Maria I've joined and sent in blocks for 3 swaps not received any of the swaps back yet but they should be arriving soon.  So if you start a swap count me in I've loved doing them.

quilting canadians did a charm swap, we are working on a BoM sew along (I am co-ordinating it) and we may do a signature quilt block swap in future....jump right in!

hhmm Aida you may have just given me something to think about. Gee it's been at least 10 yrs since I've headed a swap. Going to look at the groups that have already been started on here and take it from there. I always found it more fun when we'd swap more than just a couple of blocks... ie ... quilt gadgets, cute personal items, fq's, a block or two and we'd always recycle quilting books/patterns that we'd already used or decided we weren't going to use.


Connie... thanks for the info... will def check into them.
