Anyone interested


In joining in a vintage sheet FQ swap?

Last year (I think) Meika organised one, and this year I thought it might be my turn. (Also I plan on making a couple of picnic blankets and would like to make them from thrifted sheets) so who's in?

Basic details are:

Register your interest below in a comment or email me at thebell01@hotmail.com by the 9th of November and I email you my snail mail addy. You then send me as many FQ's (18" x 22") cut from vintage sheets, pillowcases etc as you like along with a self addressed prepaid satchel (for those in Aus(3kg or 500g depending on how many you send). Anyone outside of Aus who would like to take part please email me so we can work out what the return postage will be)You will need to post them to me by the 20th November and I will get them to you by December 1st. I will send and assortment of FQ's (as many as you sent) back to you!

WHAT FABRICS CAN I INCLUDE?Sheets, pillowcases, tablecloths in 100% cotton or linen are preferable. Please no pre-quilted fabrics, solid colours or licenced characters


You could make this:





(Yes, I basically copied and pasted Meika's post! Sorry, Meika, you are just eloquent!)

ooh, this sounds great! I'll be in it, if anyone else is that is! Is 100% cotton only (or close to it)? I would prefer that, what does everyone else think??

I would love to join in, I participated in the one last year and it was great. I was thinking about a picnic blanket for the warmer weather as well!

Sally said...

Oh if you have seen the pics on my blog of my vintage sheets I think I have a few I can contribute - sounds fabulous!! I did Meikas last year & it was great fun!!

I will put my hand up as well for a swap.

I made Possum a quilt with my last lot of swap sheets, the picnic blanket idea sounds like a good one this time :)

Thanks

Me too, I have some vintage sheets than have been just too fun to cut so this will inspired me to 'bite the bullet', whatever that means!! Thanks. I am for 100% cotton too.

Can I just ask what prints are acceptable or preferred for vintage? The example is more soft florals but most of mine are bold or bright florals. Are there examples of what people like for this swap?
