Time for the SWAP info :)

Fat Quarter Vintage Sheet Swap!
I have been waiting per Elizabeth's request to start a Vintage sheet swap of my own. I was so inspired by hers, but unfortunately missed the deadline. I know there are more of you out there that were bummed to have missed it too. Here is your chance.
How it works -
Each Swapper sends me return postage and up to 50 Fat Quarters (cut from their vintage fabric) that they would like to swap. After I receive every one's fat quarters, I will send each swapper an assortment of fat quarters equal to the number they sent me.
Types of Fabric -
The title suggests Vintage Sheets, but any fun vintage prints would work. Please stay away from licensed characters and solids. Pillowcases, table clothes, curtains, and vintage yardage are all acceptable in this swap. Please stick with Cotton, Linen, and 50/50 percale only.
To sign up -
Leave a comment with your email address on this post by midnight August 7. I am going to limit the number of swappers to 30 people, so the deadline is really Aug. 7, or 30 people, whichever happens first. I will send you a confirmation email with more specifics. I can't wait to get started.
EDITED TO ADD- Fat Quarters will need to be mailed to me by September 1st. I hope this will give everyone plenty of time to get their hands on some vintage goodness. If everything works as planned I hope to mail the Fat Quarters back no later than the 15th of September.
*ONE MORE THING**** I have the swap open a little longer 6 spots remain, but you must be able to ship to me by Aug. 31st :)

What fun! Such a great way to get fabric for a scrappy quilt. I don't have the time to participate this time around, but if you ever host another I'd love to do it!

Quick question: Do the fat quarters have to be from a variety of prints, or can they all be from just one or two sheets? I've never done these before. Thanks!

I forgot to leave my email! I hope I still get to join in!! It's mmquaal (at) yahoo (dot) com. My blog, which you commented on, is a collective so the posting was from someone else and I'm eager to sign up. (She is burned out, but not me!!)

Gail :) said...

THe fabrics can be from one or two sheets, that is fine. We need more participants though, so there is more variety. So tell your friends ;)

can I still join in? I have a bunch of vintage sheets. I washed them today and the are almost done drying so I'd just need to cut them up. I can email you a picture of the sheets so you could tell me which ones qualify??? (I'm not really sure how "vintage" you are wanting them to be... 20 years? 10 years?) let me know!
