Listed here will be ideas for swaps, we often think of things and then forget them or they get buried in posts. So here is a spot to keep them safe! Add any ideas you come across or think of.


* Shelf/Jar quilt (such as seen here http://www.geocities.com/quiltfrenzy/bottlequilt.html)
* Pin Cushions
* Mini quilts
* Bookmarks

A different recipe swap. This time each person buy some blank note cards, choose a postcard or photo from your local area and stick it on, making your own little recipe note card. Then write your favourite recipe inside (you could print it and glue the folded page inside too) That way when we swap we will have a collection of recipes in a different format

There is a really cute pattern online for a coin purse with a window for your drivers license. I'd love to swap that. I made one and like it, but would enlarge it just a little. I have a clip on it and if we go for a walk or some where that I want to bring only a little money and my drivers license, I bring that and clip it to my jeans belt loop. There are several patterns online.

Has anyone hear of a lasnaga quilt. If not just type it into your search space, I found the pattern on you tube. It starts with jelly roll. You just sew each strip on to make a 1600 " strip. As you sew each piece you have to miter the strips. it sounds interesting. So i am going to try it.

Redwork I just finished making one... they just called it a Jelly Roll Quilt... It takes quite a while to sew the strips together but after that it goes pretty fast... I am waiting for some border fabric to come in to finish it up....
