Santa's Stash Swap

 I know I personally end up with extra fabric at the end of most of my quilting projects. In some cases I see something I love or that is on sale and grab it up but haven't found a project for it and it's sitting in my stash. Other times I buy a fabric and think it's the right one and get home and change my mind. Some quilts get more than one backing before I decide which way to go. I don't think I'm the only one with this problem. In any event this is a swap for people with extra stash that they would like to shake up.

I am hoping that this one will turn out well and will be a lot of fun!! For this swap you can choose what you would like to send, and what you would like to receive. The options are 4 fat quarters or an 8 oz bag of scraps. 

This is a Secret Santa style swap. Meaning that the person you send to is not necessarily the person who will send a package to you. The guidelines are as follows.

  • The swap is open to participants in the USA only to keep shipping costs low.
  • You will send your package by a method that includes a tracking number.(USPS first class parcel includes tracking if mailed from the post office I believe.)
  • All fabric should be quilt shop quality fabric. 
  • Send good quality fabric that you would want to receive. 
  • If choosing the scrap option make sure pieces are at least 2.5" in every direction and no larger than a fat quarter (18" x 22")
  • If choosing the fat quarter option make sure they are 18" x 22" each.
  • If you would like to participate please send the following information to by 11/26/2016.
    • What you will send (4 fat quarters or 8 oz of scraps)
    • What you would like to receive (4 fat quarters or 8 oz of scraps)
    • What types of fabrics you like, be as specific as possible to help your partner.
      • Example: I like red and blue fabrics, I am working on an eye spy quilt right now and could use some more fabrics. My favorite fabrics are Robert Kaufmann and Riley Blake. I don't like yellows and gold. I don't like floral fabrics or 1930's reproductions.
    • And finally include your name and mailing address.
  • I will send your Secret Santa information to you and their wish list by 11/28/2016.
    • Pick, package and mail to your Secret Santa by 12/17/2016 to hopefully receive by Christmas.
      • Make sure that you do your best to follow the wish list of who you are sending to. The idea is to swap from within your stash so get as close as you can to their wishes. You can shop for fabric if you would like to, or if you need a reason to go to a quilt shop.
    • Post the goodies you receive at the Santa Stash Swap Flickr page.

    ***The bag in the picture weighs 8.57 oz and fills a quart size ziploc bag pretty snuggly. This quart size ziploc bag empty weights 1/4 oz. Make sure to check your weight on a kitchen scale or at the post office. Quilting cotton weighs about 5-6 oz per yard, and batiks are about 4 oz per yard. So know that batik heavy scrap bags will take a little more to get to 8 oz.***

    Can't wait to get to swapping!
