How many are we supposed to send and are they to be cut in any particular way? Is anyone interested in things for crazy quilts, all kinds of non cottons, velveteen, silky, etc? I have lots of odds and in's like that but more than I will ever use.  In exchange I would like cotton scraps. Let me know and I will decide.

Bob must really have put his foot in it!

What I did last time around was go though my scraps and toss out/cut off things that should not have gone into the scrap box in the first place, as I strongly doubt anyone would find them useful. I'll try to start on that sometime next week. I have been throwing selvedges for Golo into the same box, so I will sort those out as I go. To me, that means nothing under 2 1/2" square.

I agree with Marynel. I think nothing under 2 1/2" square should be included. And it should all be quilting cotton.
If anyone is interested in Bobbie's Crazy Quilt fabrics let me know.

Redwork, we haven't gotten to amount yet. I am in the middle of moving my daughter for college and need about a week for things to settle down so I can work through the particulars. I appreciate ya'lls patience.

I think I will take part either way. If anyone wants the crazy quilt fabrics, good, otherwise I will join in the cotton exchange. I really want some "different" scraps.

Got to take a minute and tell Mamu how pleased I was with her box of scraps. There are a dozen UFOs lurking around that will get finished from that box. Now who wants a box from me?

Oh my goodness. I completely forgot about this. I am sooooo sorry! Tomorrow I will be home, so I'll put together some packages for those who sent me their addresses.

Sheesh. :hammer:

Sheesh, you aren't the only one who forgot. And I started the darn thing! Embarassed  I am so, so sorry everyone. I totally dropped the ball on this.

Do y'all still want to swap or did y'all give up waiting? I am so sorry. Embarassed 

I did do some research on those prepaid boxes and came to the conclusion that we will be better off stuffing  a large 10 1/2x 15" padded envelope rather than use a prepaid box from the post office. I say padded envelope because they are sturdier than the plain paper ones. You can safely do more stuffing.

This was the last list I had made up.
"Swap"pers: Exchanging scraps for scraps:

TxMary
Golo
Linda 2B
Jill
Memaw
Redwork
Sarah( Redworks' friend)
Marynel
Slumbersoft

Will pay postage for scraps:
TexasMusicMom
Redmadder
Krafty Lady
Linda 2B

Will send scraps in exchange for postage:
Fiberbabble
Mamu

Still thinking on it:

HummerLou (only if its a bit later)

Please let me know if you still want to swap and if you do please send me your current address by PM. We have had a few mix ups on addies in the past and I want to make sure I have all the current ones to give out.

Those of you who want to send scraps to those who are willing to postage for them, please contact those ladies by pm and come to an agreement on what you are doing. Obviously Mamu and Redmadder were on the ball and did just that. Thank goodness. whew 

Once again I do apologize. Time and life kinda got away from me. Embarassed

Well, actually I meant to trade scraps for scraps, but I know I was kinda indecisive at first so it may have been confusing. I will send my address.

Oops, my bad Bobbie. I've got you on the right list now. Sorry.

Golo, it is one on one but if anyone wants to swap with more than one person, like Linda and Redwork, just let me know and I'll set you up. So are you in?

Who else is still in?  Memaw? Jill? Marynel? Hummerlou?

Gonna close this Friday and swap names. Let me know ASAP

Golo are you in?

Marynel I will need your addy.

I am going to send out names this weekend and since we are not making anything, I think we should all be able to gather, pack and mail so that everyone has their package by the 15th of Sept. Don't want to draw this out.

To recap:
No scraps smaller than 2 1/2" square.
Good, clean fabric.
10 1/2" x 15" padded envelope, very generously stuffed. (Like the swap hostess lol!  )
Have in mail to reach destination by Sept 15th.

Any questions?
