Noodle Swapping

Last month I joined a Swap-Bot noodle swap - aka - 5 inch strip of fabric swap and I just wanted to share what i've been receiving the past several weeks. I joined two swaps and each of them I was assigned 5 swap partners to send noodles to, both national and international. I love it! I love receiving packages from all over the world and I love sending things all over the world too! Today, I received a wonderful package from Holland that was beautifully wrapped in polka-dot paper and tied with ribbons and inside, what a great noodle.

Don't ya just love the fun fabric in black, white and hints of red!

This is what I've received over the last two swaps so far, still more noodles to come for November's swap but I jut love the variety. I already have plans to make some simple coasters with some of the christmas fabrics received and some swappers even send some minie blocks put together - that's ambitious but gives me an idea for the next swap too! If your'e interested in joining in on the fun, go on over to Swap-Bot and look for the 5 inch Noodle Swaps - they are coordinated by Ryan, another guy quilter like me!

This is a great way to collect different fabrics from around the world. Will you be making a quilt out of them or shuffle the fabric into your stash?
