Desperately Seeking Solids

Well, maybe not desperately...

But I am seeking solids.  All hues.  Small sizes.

I'm starting a project, and I am wanting to use all solids. And teeny tiny pieces.  But I don't ever work with solids, and thus I have almost none in my stash.  And my source for solids here is JoAnn's.  Which is a rather limiting supply of colors.....  Can you help me?

Would you be willing to put a couple of squares of solids in an envelope and mail them to me?  I'm looking for pieces about 2.5" square, so Very Small.  A couple could travel via postal mail in a regular envelope with a 44 cent stamp.  And I would be very, Very appreciative!  Would you comment if you would be willing to part with some scraps?  Or send me an e-mail (address on the right).  And is there something I can send to you in return?  I'd love to raid my stash for you!  

Thanks so much!

  1. How about a swap? I have some solids, but in exchange I'm looking for 1.5 inch squares of royal or navy blue, red and butter-yellow.

  2. I don't have many because I rarely buy solids too but I'll gladly send you squares of what I have.

  3. I'd be happy to mail you some solids. Let me know where to mail them. Many quilters have helped me out in the past and I'd love to do the same. Quilters are the nicest people on earth, after all!

  4. I'm willing to swap if you still need some. How many will fit in an envelope before it ups the 44 cent price? I'm willing to swap about 88 cents worth of solids for 88 cents worth of I spy...sound good?? (Assuming the envelopes will hold more than two before costing more.) I'll email ya.

  6. I'll send you some; I accumulated a lot as I am using solids as the first ring in my grandmother's flower garden quilt. Are you wanting more of brights or pastels?
    Would you want browns and beiges -- I assume you have white, black and cream already.

  7. I had to run down and check to see if I had any solids before I could answer... : ) I guess I'm like you. I don't have very many. But I found a few. I could send them if you want me to. They're mostly pastels, for some reason...

  9. I have a lot of 1 1/2 " squares if they will work. Let me know. (Not sure if there is a private message mechanism here or not.)

  10. I'd be happy to send you some. I've got probably 20 colors or so. Do you need just one square of each color?
