Christmas Fabric Charm Swap

I started two charm swaps on Swap-Bot using Christmas fabric. I think it will be great to see what kind of prints we can get from other people. You can use some novelty prints. If anyone is interested follow this link. You have to be a registered swap-bot user to join. Don’t let that shy you away. There are great swaps on Swap-Bot. Occasionally you get a flaker. However I do Angel my swaps. So if your partner doesn’t send to you I will.

Swap 1 & Swap 2

For those of you who don’t know what charms are, they are a 5 inch square of 100% cotton material. Used in various sewing projects.

Here is how Moda sells them.


Here are a few things I have made with charms.





New Quilting Group – My Quilting Buddies

A dear friend of mine Tina,  has started a new online quilting group. It is called My Quilting Buddies. If you like to swap or chat with other quilters around the world you might want to check it out. I am hosting a few swaps.

There are no sew swaps: 4 1/2 inch charms, fat quarters, fat 8ths, strip swap, and a layer cake swap.

The sew swaps are: a themed 6 1/2 inch nine patch swap, Scrappy Tennessee block, I’ve been framed block, Box quilt block, Stash buster block, and a wall hanging or table mat swap.

There are 3 different blocks of the month to choose from. There is also a barter board where you can post items you no longer want and list what you want for it. Very cool. I have traded blocks that I made but never made into a quilt and fabric I no longer wanted. We all have that moment when going through out stuff and think, “Why did I buy this?” Usually for me it was because it was on sale. LOL.There is also a list of great free patterns and tutorials.

I am hosting the scrappy strip swap, 4 1/2inch charm swap, and the 6 1/2 inch nine patch swap.

So please come by and say Hi and maybe join a swap. Hope to see you there.
