Vintage fabric square swap???

I have had a little brain wave....
and wondered if anyone would be interested?

As you know....
I was recently very blessed to stumble across a vintage quilt.
and after reading all the lovely comments...I sort of felt almost too lucky....
 I so wished that we could all have one just like it!

Then my brain began to tick....
and I thought...
What if I were to host a vintage square swap...
and a group of us were to all swap some vintage fabric squares...
it would mean we would be all well on the way to creating a quilt like this of our very own.

So if you would be interested in participating in the swap
 please leave me a quick 'Yes' message at the end of this post....
that way I can judge if its a worthwhile idea or not.

Out of interest...
the squares would be 6" x 6"
they could be any colour or pattern.....in fact that's the beauty of it....its a totally eclectic mix.
They would need to be vintage fabric......and in good condition.
The swap would be simple...
You send me as many as you wish....and you receive that amount back.
(Just include a return postage paid envelope)

Let me know what you think...
and fire away with any questions too.

Have a super weekend...
Mardi x
