Scrap Vomit Square Swop
Yes, I know I said I wasn't going to make another vomit quilt but I love it so much and I've got new fabric that didn't go in the old quilt, so I'm starting another one or at least starting to collect the squares.
If you don't know much about the Scrap Vomit quilt, please check out imagingermonkey but for the smaller quilt I made last time, you need 965 different squares.
I know there are a few on flickr who want to swop some squares so I thought i'd organise a SV Swop.
Of course, if your saving up your squares for a postage stamp quilt, you could come and swop with us too.
The idea is you cut up 49 different 2.5" fabric squares, please not the selvedges or scraps and IDEALLY they will be DIFFERENT fabrics but if you have to duplicate, please not more than 3 or 4.
I know I used different types of fabric in my scrap vomit, some polycotton, some linen, quilters cotton and some slightly thicker stuff but preferably the swop will be for Quilters 100% cotton. They can be gorgeous fabrics, they can be novelty or yukky fabrics because all fabric is beautiful in it's own way. Please not completely plain squares.
I'm hoping there will be enough people willing to swop Worldwide, if you can't afford postage out of your country, please let me know via Email and I'll make sure your paired with someone from your own country.
Swop will be left open until June 10th, I'll email you your partners by the 14th and i'm envisaging everyone will have posted their squares by the end of the June.
Please spread the word, the more swoppers we get the more yummy fabrics.
To register for the swop please Email me with SWOP in the subject line, I need your name, mailing address and how many people your willing to swop with and if your fine with worldwide or only your own country.
Let the swopping and cutting begin :)
