Les Soldes (or a give away)

I'm clearing out bins - I've emptied one only to fill it up again with possible backing fabrics.

So I've got some stuff to give away or swap.

When I started quilting I collected/bought/acquired flowery fabrics. Now my tastes and quilt ideas/designs have changed and I've got this lot to get rid of. It's mostly old dresses/skirts that I thought I may use. Some of it is Laura Ashley and there is a bit of Liberty Lawn in there too.

It's been sitting in the bin for well over a year so instead of storing it for another few years you can have it.

Leave a comment saying what you want, if any, and it's yours. This is on a first to comment gets it basis.

There may be more to come - I haven't finished going through the bins. I'm sure there is some more of that pink and blue flowery one (top left) somewhere.


The dark blue and pink flower one (top right) is Laura Ashley and like Liberty Lawn - thin.

The grey/green gingham type fabric is slightly seer sucker'ish so don't know if it's of any use to anyone. Anne or Fiona perhaps? Or even Bonnie!?!

I would be interested in the floral fabrics as they would integrate well with reproduction fabrics.

Bonnie knows me if you need a reference. :-))

Ohh how I love the florals, so springy and sweet. Thanks for the chance.

I have a friend of a friend who lives in Idaho, she's on assistance and has started sewing craft projects for extra monies.......maybe these could be sent to her.
I sent her a box before the holidays as I am downsizing my stash as well.

Hi Clare! How generous. I had some seer-sucker in the plaid bear paws and thought it added some fun texture. The one I'd love, though, is the Laura Ashley for a leafy-rosey KF quilt my mom has commissioned. Have a great weekend.

You know me Clare I never refuse anything but blows, especially on the fabric front and would happily swap if you wanted anything I had in return (by that I mean fabric or made item) but if there are more worthy/needy recipients ot's not a problem :o)

I would love, love, love anything you are parting with. My 14 year old daughter is crazy about Paris, France so she'd love it if I got fabric from there!! :) Thanks for being so generous! Send me an e-mail and I'll send you my address.
