PostSubject: Swap Ideas for 2010   Thu Sep 03, 2009 6:13 pm

On another thread we were brainstorming ideas for quilt alongs for next year. Some people have ideas for swaps that might be conducted too so I thought we needed to start a swap ideas topic here. I have also started a list of swap ideas, its locked so it doesnt get filled with chat which we can do here ;) This list doesnt mean the ideas put down will necessarily be done as swaps next year, its simply a list of ideas and things members think could be fun. Anyone can host a swap, dont be shy, if something on the list catches your fancy - go ahead and start the swap, its fun and we all enjoy swapping!

I added bookmarks to the list, been thinking about them all year, light to post, keep the cost down. Easy to make adn achievable without a major layout of time and materials. They could be done like postcards only smaller, could be embroidered, appliqued, pieced or done using mediums like paint/pencils/papercrafts/scrapbooking. They could be spiffed up with trinkets and treasures or left simple. We all have books, quilt books, cook books let alone novels. We could even swap themes, orientated to the books they are to be used in such as cook book themed onces, quilt book themed ones, gardening themes etc etc. Just an idea so I popped it on the list.

What ideas have you got or is there a swap you'd like to see run?

Oh I really like those patterns Golo. I've never worked with Asian fabrics before. They look lucious and rich.

Are these patterns free to download?
