Vintage Fabric Swap, Anyone?

Are you a vintage fabric collector?  Want to swap a few? 

February is my birthday month, and I think this will be a fun way to celebrate!


I want to copy this old quilt.


Each block uses a different print.


I wonder if the maker traded fabrics with her friends.


I'd love to include fabrics from my friends too!


I've been collecting vintage fabrics for years.



I've got some in every color.



I'd love to trade some small pieces with you!



All I need is one 9 x 12" piece--or two pieces 4.5 x 12"for each block.  I'm looking for medium to large prints, floral or funky.



If you want to swap one or a few, leave a comment and we'll trade addresses.  Let me know what colors and prints you want.  And I'll do my best to make your wishes come true!





















This block is made with my Accuquilt Go! Baby, with big thanks to Victoria for the "Chisel" die.  It fits perfectly with the 3" triangle.

I have some vintage fabrics, and would love to send you some. Shoot me your snail mail address. I don't need any vintage in return. My birthday this month as well--yesterday as a matter of fact! Have a happy birthday month!

Of course, I have vintage. I have a great group of 50's fabrics. They are quite "moderne". Let me know how you want to do this.

Have fun with your quilt.

I have two sizeable pieces of vintage fabric - I'd love to send them to you (they were backs from small quilts that were in my grandmother's house).

Just send me your address and they'll be on their way (I don't see either of them in your photos).

I don't want to trade but I think it is OK to just send you a Birthday Piece or two, send me your snail mail and I will see what I can spare- lol

I have feedsack as well as vintage cotton. Send me your snail mail address and I will see what I can dig up for you. I don't need anything back - just consider it a birthday present. I will just enjoy the fabric when I see it in the quilt!

Happy Birthday Month! This swap sounds fun but sadly I don't have any of this vintage fabric. Look forward to seeing what you all make though.

I'm not sure if I have any fabrics that would suit. I might have one or two.. Ill hunt them out later today and take a photo to show you. I really love the pattern of this quilt and all those fabrics are wonderful!!

I have some vintage fabrics and I'd be happy to swap. I'll have to look through them though and see what sizes I have. I won't get to that until the weekend. Would you send me an e-mail and I'll be in touch with you then.

Oh my goodness I wish I had been collecting vintage fabrics, I've had every chance to and never have.
This quilt is adorable, I especially like the border treatment with the little "pie sections" and the scalloped edging.

Happy Sewing

How old is "vintage"? Feed sacks?

I have some of my hubby's grandmothers fabrics and some calico's if you are interested. Let me know.

Happy birthday month! I've got the wrong stash for this swap, but it looks like a fun one. Please keep sharing!

Happy Birthday month!

I have some vintage fabrics from the 50's/60's that I'd love to swap with you. I can't get around to this until at least Sunday . . . busy days! Send me your snail mail addy in the meantime, and I'll see what I can come up with!

BTW, that pattern is on my Bucket List. I love it!

I have some vintage fabrics I would love to swap for anything you have leftover I got a bag from e-bay years ago and haven't touched them yet I believe they are from feed sacks not reproductions, send me your address and happy birthday to you.

You say it's your birthday; it's my birthday too, yeah! We're gonna have a good time! Happy Birthday to you!
Hmmmm, I'll have to look around at what I have.....

I can send you some 50's fabrics but don't want any in return. Send me your mailing address. It looks like you'll be able to make every block different with all the offers you got.

I've got some stuff that I don't see in your pix. No need for a trade for me either.
