"Spring Back to the 30's" Layer Cake Swap

Sign-ups are now CLOSED

(Please join us in our next swap!

This is a 10” Square Layer Cake Swap!

Sets of TEN 10” squares will be swapped.

Jess has given me permission to post this swap.

Nola has agreed to be my co-host again.


Here are the dates:


Sign-ups until: March 30th

Please mail your swap packages no later than: April 15th

I will swap and return: two weeks after the last swap packet is received by me.


We will again be swapping 10” squares in sets of TEN.


You may swap as many sets as you like. Scrappy sets are okay.
However, PLEASE DO NOT SEND MORE THAN 10 squares or ONE SET of each fabric. Different colorways of the same print are okay.


I will be again making an album so we may enjoy seeing all the fabric and I will ask you to post pictures of your fabric in the thread or email them to me and I will post them in the album.  If you do not have a camera, you may still participate, but please check the album carefully for duplicates.  I will take a picture of your fabrics and post them when I receive them.


Important note … please send only 100% cotton quilting quality fabrics and please be sure that you wash and press all fabrics. 

 Please cut carefully and be sure that all selvages are removed from all squares. Squares that have any SELVAGE showing WILL BE RETURNED TO YOU UNSWAPPED.


Also … your sets may be scrappy, but please be sure all fabrics MEET THE FABRIC REQUREMENTS OF THIS SWAP …


All fabrics should be 30's "Depression Era" repros, washed quality all-cotton fabrics … LIGHT, MEDIUM to DARK … all colors are okay … pastels and brights are okay … prints and tonals or solids are all okay … checks and plaids are okay … feedsack and other similarly cheery fabrics from the late 20's to the end of the 30's are also accepable ... think “Everything but the Kitchen Sink” !!

Here are some sample fabrics …


There are so many wonderful patterns out there for these cute fabrics, such as this free pattern from Marcus Bros …

http://www.marcusfabrics.com/makeit/projects/aunt_grace_authentics/index.html

 

Please pack each set separately in a plastic baggie with your name and address and Set # on the outside.


Please be sure to return and STAMPED self-addresses return envelope.


Please only use STAMPS … no pre-dated postage labels will be accepted by my post office.


Please use Priority Mail or First Class padded envelopes, if possible.  You may send Parcel Post but please be sure to allow at least an extra week mailing time. If you would like a Delivery Confirmation Number for the return package please enclose the extra cost in your envelope.


International swappers are always welcome! Swappers from outside the USA may again make private arrangements to send additional fabric for the return postage. Please send a self-addressed envelope.  Fabric may be sent in exchange for your return postage.  PM me and we can find something that works well for both of us.


IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT DUPLICATES:  Although there is a vast variety of 30's repros, many of them are very similar in design and color and although I will ask swappers to submit photos of their fabrics again for us to all enjoy ... and to try to avoid sending the same fabric as another swapper...  it may be too difficult to tell from a photo if the fabrics are actually the same.  So, although I will again try to avoid duplicates in return packages, I am not going to worry too much about this. Okay, swappers?

Debbieann ... Yes! 

Different colorways of the same print are okay and are considered different fabrics!!

I have amended the first post to help clarify this.

Thank you for asking this question ... Pat

You get 4 across, and needing 10/set, you would need 3 rows (= +30"), so 1 Yard/meter would give you a set with a bit left for your stash. OK?

Debbieann ... lovely fabrics!!!        I have you down for 5 sets for now. Thanks for PM-ing your info to me. I am so happy you have joined our circle of swappers!  

Sally ... I will add you to the list and you can let me know how many sets later.  Please remember that you may send "scrappy sets" if you do not have a yard or you want to keep extra for yourself. 

Dorian ... hope you will be joining us soon ...

Tiffaney ... yes ... one washed yard of fabric that is at least 42 inches wide will give you 12 squares  ... 10 for a set ... 2 extra for you ... and strip of about 5-6 inches wide left after cutting.

Gerda ... thanks for jumping in with your expert help, sweetie  ...

I have started the album here ...

Hello Pat

Here are the other three fabrics that were hiding on me so to speak. So add 3 more sets for a total of 8 sets.

Thanks a bunch.

Hugs and stitches

Debbieann

Pat

I would like to join in on this swap but won't totally commit myself yet as will wait and see what I can find next week when I am at Tomball.  Fabrics is just sooo expensive in the UK at the moment and so much cheaper in the US so will have to keep you hanging on for a bit if that is OK with you.  (I can also post from the US which would be better too).

Pat - Please put me down for 7. I found some really cute fabric on-sale on-line and just ordered them. I will post a picture as soon as they arrive.

Now I just need a pattern that will work well for these retro fabrics.
