The quilt group I belong to had 13 active members is doing a strip swap in May. The rules are simple:
1. Bring 13 bags with seven light and seven dark fat-quarter length strips.
2. No 30's, novelty, neon, or pastel fabrics.
3. Has to be quilt shop quality fabric.
We can trade strips after the trade, but I doubt I will do that as sometimes the fabrics I don't really care for make the best quilts.
This is the book that sparked this idea. Darcy has already shown us the Kitchen Sink quilt she made, and it was gorgeous. I am planning to do the basket quilt as I love basket blocks.
I think this is going to be one of the best projects we've done. Everyone in this group has great taste in quilts and fabrics, so I know every quilt will be a winner.
