Ideas for June swap...just in case I get up the nerve to host a swap I want to know what others are interested in.  Since this is totally new to me I would prefer doing the same as May...fat quarters.  What would you want to swap?  Specific color?  Batiks?  30's reproductions? Patriotic?

My only hesitation in doing it is that there are specific rules and it's frustrating when they aren't followed.  Such as putting your fabric in a baggie and putting your name on it (so you don't get back your own fabric!).  Also, being fair and not sending junky fabric.  Diana has a perfect list of rules that I'd copy...IF I did it.  I sure wish someone else would host a swap!  I'm thrilled that Diana started the idea in the first place!

Patricia, I think it's too late for the first swap...all fabrics were supposed to be at Diana's by today and then she'll swap them and send them back sometime this week.  I was hoping someone would start a new swap for June.  I'd do it, but I've never done one before, so I'm kind of nervous about being in charge of everyone else's fabrics!  Anyway, Diana is having computer problems, so she's not posting a lot right now.  But I do know she's about ready to be sending everyone their fabrics who participated.

ALSO, there were several posts about the swap and it got rather confusing, so Diana started this group so all swap info could be in one place.  The rules are usually set by the host of the swap (fabric quality, size, color, etc.).

Hope this helps, and I'm sorry you didn't get to do this one, but there'll always be more!

I'd paricipate in a scrap swap...how about I send everyone my scraps and no one send me any!  I'd love to get rid of them! They're hogging precious space! LOL!!!

I'm just so enjoying the interactions that we can swap hair cutting - its all about the community of quilters-my sisters-in-a wonderful obsession.  So if I have to make a mug rug then I will.  I agree, I would rather swap fabric.  And I have been in a couple of block swaps at my guild.  Believe me when I say that 8" means different things to different people.  But bring it on.

Patricia, mug rugs are kind of like small potholders or large coasters.  I've seen a few blogs doing those swaps (I only heard of mug rugs recently).  And yes, it would be for potholders (or blocks or whatever) that we've made.  Of course I've never made a potholder either!  I'm not much of a sewer!  My preferance is to swap different fabrics, but some people love swapping blocks.

I would love to be a part of your swapping-but I don't know what you mean by a mug rug swap.  And when potholders are mentioned are we talking about ones we make?  But whatever the swap is I'm game.  Hey we can swap scraps.LOL!!
