I read the fat quarter swap hosted by Sew,Mama,Sew had 450 participants, which is just fabulous. Imagine the variety of fabrics that are being shared all over the world!
I received a couple packages so far, and I had to convince my husband these packages were part of a trade, not fabrics I ordered! (he thinks I get a package of fabric A DAY, which I don’t!)
This first package was from Regan in California:
Aren’t they lovely? The fat quarter is the brown piece on top. She included the other two scrap size pieces as a bonus! The middle piece is a cheerful, summery piece, and the bottom piece reminds me of redwork.
This fat quarter came from Maren in Tennessee:
This fat quarter came from Jacqui all the way from New Zealand:
I also did a side swap with Rebecca of Lula Dahl, who also works part-time at Sew,Mama,Sew. She prepares their fat quarter sets, and she also coordinated the swap. After spending hours sorting out the participants and sending out all the emails, she had forgotten to put her name on the list. So she called out for others who might be interested in doing another swap. She sent me these goodies:
Rebecca sells her adorable aprons in her etsy shop, and she was so generous to share one with me (it’s the purple fabric on the far left in the photo above). She also sent along those pretty ribbons and adorable fabric-covered buttons.
Here’s a close-up of those fabrics (notice the Heather Ross gnomes!):
I’m thinking about making a couple drawstring bags with these fabrics for a trip I have coming up.
Thank you so much for your generosity, ladies!
Share some of the fabrics from your stash by joining the Sunday Stash group.
Check out everyone else’s stash at the flickr group. It’s fun to see the variety of fabrics out there, many of which I have not seen anywhere else.
