Fabric Giveaway / Stash Swap

Looking for a some fabric for a project to start the new year?  Tidying up and have some stuff that you've realised that you're just never going to use?  Welcome to the Stash Swap.  The idea is that you publish a Stash Swap post with details of fabric you want to give away, create a link on the Stash Swap page, and both help someone out and clear out your stash at the same time.

Here's the fabric I'm hoping to clear out this month:

I have no idea where this pink background cotton fabric came from!  It's evidently been used for something, as it is L-shaped.  There is a 98cm long section that's the width of the fabric (115cm), with a 60cm long by 54cm wide piece beneath it.  You can have this one with no postage cost at all, as it'll fit into an A4 envelope.

 I think this material has been in my stash longer than any other.  Its a fine suiting fabric, but I'm not sure what it's made of.  I love the feel of it, which is why it has stayed in my stash for at least 15 years even though I'm not into wearing green at all!  It's 148cm wide and 1.6m long.  It'll fit into the smaller size prepaid satchel (which costs $6).

This is some leftover curtain fabric (unlined) from a roman blind I made for a kitchen in a house I moved out of a long time ago!  The main section measures 47cm by the width of the fabric (145cm), plus there are other bits and pieces.  The fabric is 100% cotton, and I think it would be best used as the basis of a quilt, and if I were into 'country' then that's what I'd do with it.  Altogether there are 56 17cm x 16cm "squares", plus several part squares (I have the breakdown of what type of squares there are if you're interested, but in addition to those shown there are other florals, a rooster, bull, plough & sheep - a total of 15 different squares).  Again, I think it'll fit into an A4 sized envelope, so no need to send me any post satchels.

If you're interested in having any of this fabric for the cost of posting it to you post a comment (you'll need to say which fabric you're after and make sure you leave an email address).  If you have some stash you'd like to 'swap' or want to see what others would like to pass on then click here.
