Text Swap!

This is a very texty week.  I received this lovely bunch of charm squares from the all Canadian text fabric swap.  56 of them I think.  Oh man!  There are just so many lovelies in this bunch and I have no idea what the plan will be for them but it was just so much fun to be part of this swap.  Many thanks to Barb at the Quilting Barbie for organizing all of it.

I think this might be the start of something with some more all Canadian swaps to come.  With the price of postage, it just makes sense.  For these charm squares, the postage was only $2.20. Not too bad.  Rumour has it that low volume fabrics might be up next!

And why am I thinking this is a texty week?  This week at my guild meeting we will be swapping text fabric fat quarters!!!  Woo hoo!

Happy Tuesday!


  1. Darn! When I first saw this, I thought you were starting a swap! I love text prints and have asked my bee partners for some text prints in my blocks this month. You have a lovely bunch there ; )

  2. For some reason I was surprised we got two of each, even though I knew that would happen. It was an extra bit of goodness for me.

  3. I love text prints...don't see them to often tho. I thought same as Carla...a text swap/giveaway thing! Oh well...I'd say "hope" you enjoy them but I am positive you will...just make sure you show us what you do with them!

  4. Sounds interesting... I'll be looking out for the next one!!

  5. oooooo - a text swap! What a great idea! Where do you find these swaps! I would love to swap!!! Enjoy those great fabrics!
