Welcome to Swap 2011!

It looks like we are going to have a “double your pleasure, double your fun” Layer Cake Swap as a start to 2011! Pat will host one color choice and I will host the other.

The dates will be the same to sign-up and mail by, but you will send one set of fabrics to Pat and the other to me. We are encouraging you to participate in both Swaps, but understand some people may not want to collect that many Layer Cakes…

This is the “Creamy Neutral” Layer Cake Swap.

For an idea of “creamy neutral”, think about what you would use as a neutral background for one of your quilts…and make it as neutral as possible.

Since creamy neutrals can be really hard to photograph, I will be posting an album, but it will be far too difficult to use it as a tool to help avoid duplicates. For this swap, please expect doubles or even triples or more of some fabrics in your return packets.

Here are the dates:


Sign-ups will start immediately and close on January 15, 2011.

Sign-ups are closed as of January 17, 2011.


The mail in date is January 31, 2011.

The date is .


Pat and I will swap your layers and return them 2 weeks after we receive the last package.

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

Here are the rules:

1) We are swapping 100% cotton quilting fabrics.
2) Please be sure to wash and press all fabrics first.
3) Please cut carefully and be sure all selvages are removed from all squares. Squares that have any SELVAGE showing WILL BE RETURNED TO YOU UNSWAPPED.
4) You may swap as many sets as you like. Scrappy sets are okay. 5) However, PLEASE DO NOT SEND MORE THAN 10 squares or ONE SET of each fabric. Different color waves of the same print are okay.
5) Please pack each set separately in a plastic baggie with your name and address and Set # on the outside.
6) Please mail your swap packages no later than January 31, 2011.
7) Include a return envelope, self-addressed with stamps for the correct postage on the envelope. Post offices will not take pre-dated postage labels.

Please use Priority Mail or First Class padded envelopes. Prior experience has proven those to be the most likely to be returned to you by the post office. If you would like delivery confirmation, there is an extra $ .70 charge.


International swappers are always welcome! Swappers from outside the U.S.A. may make private arrangements with me for the return postage. Please PM me and we can find something that works well for both of us.


To Sign-Up, all participants should please post in this thread and send me a Private Message with your …

Okay then; We are off and running!

Glad to have all of you on board. This time, you get to help with the decisions.

Pat and I mulled over how to describe "Creamy Neutral" as to color. I would like to hear what each of you think and maybe we can come to a decision. It would sure help me know what to shop for as to color.

We are in Seattle, so I went to visit a LQS yesterday. Found lots of neat stuff, but nothing I was satisfied with .

Ideas?

I'm like Sally - white, creams and lighter tans. In some light no matter what some white are creamy next to others but look white just on their own. It can be sometimes frustrating. By covering all then eveything will fall into place, I think anyways.

Just my thought on the swap.lol

Still thinking about it, however. No pay and I have to think a little harder.

Hugs and stitches

Thank you ladies for defining it a little more. There are so many options, and so many choices. The one thing I would hate to have would be too many white on whites and no creams.

By the way, when I posted last, I had only one hand...you know, granddaughter. Anyway, I found lots of really neat stuff, just nothing for this swap. I bought with color in mind and decided to shop at home for the creamy things.l

Have a very Merry Christmas today.

I like the idea of a range of color.... so that we have light tans, cream, beige, and white...

Here is a scrappy disappearing 9 patch block I've made several of using a variety of colors, and I LOVE the way they all play together...

But then... my name isn't scraphappydenise for nothing!

Pat, I can see this with appliqued Christmas "things" like Santa, snowman, candle etc on these. Or any applique, really, if you do a "country" style quilt. I like the idea of scrappy backgrounds. And as a subdued quilt top by itself, it looks great, Denise! It reminds me of the coffee and cream quilts that were popular a couple of years back, I think there were even some books and patterns out for those, but I don't recall any like this one of Denise's.
