What’s in the Fat Quarters Swap Box?

Looking for a new home: the array of fat quarters currently in the swap box.

Fat Quarters Swap Box

How it works: you put in any fat/long quarters you don’t want, take out any you fancy in exchange. There’s a sheet on the inside of the lid of for keeping track of what your in and out totals in case there isn’t anything that appeals straight away.

And don’t forget, there’s also a swap box for scraps.

Linus quilt by Irene O. You can't see it in the photo very well, but the quilting creates clouds/wind for the plane/helicopter, steam for the train, and exhaust fumes for the vehicles.
