It's time for some spring cleaning! I have too much fabric - in particular, yards and yards of some fabrics that are just taking up space in my sewing room. I rarely sew with large yardages. I'll use a yard for a back of a baby quilt, but mostly I need smaller pieces for quilt fronts.
So I'd like to propose a "3 for 1" fabric swap with my blog readers - I send you a three quarters of a yard's worth of fabric, and you send me a fat quarter in return. We could do this in multiples too, i.e. if you wanted to swap a yard and a half for a half yard. I thought about setting up an Etsy shop to sell this stuff, but I thought this sounded more fun.
Here's what I would like to swap for:
1. Flea Market Fancy in gray
2. Vintage fabric. Gray would be especially nice, as would orange, but beyond that, just something neat. Here's a sample of my fabric collection on Flickr to see what I like.
My list of available fabrics is below. It's all vintage, picked up at garage sales or thrift stores or antique malls. Comment on the post in a way that leaves your e-mail address for me, and I'll e-mail you to find out your shopping list.
A. oranges and other fruits
B. little calico in brown or in green
C. flower fabric by Waverly (I have gobs of this one)
D. poly or poly blend flower fabric (I have a ton of this one too)
E. floral fabric I was going to someday make aprons out of
F. dark floral print
G. pink floral print
H. vintage juvenile print. the background is light yellow, with a slight texture
I. ballerina fabric
J. bears and beehives
K. blue geometric
L. pink turtles on yellow
M. red kitchen print
N. juvenile fabric, with a slight texture
O. vintage Disney three pigs fabric (this is thinner than quilting cotton)
