What 'cha lookin' for??

We haven't had one of these threads in a while - and with the holidays approaching and so many new quilters coming out of lurkdom, I thought it was a good time to ask "what 'cha need / what 'cha lookin' for"? I may have some bit of fabric that would be just perfect for a project someone out there is working on - as many of us probably do. So.... speak up!!

Wow, what a great thread! I need funky images on fabric. Like those things that you might fussy cut. I really like weird. Bugs, birds, flowers, cars, icons, cartoon characters, equipment..... you name it. Or maybe something that's just a normal pattern all over -- like paisley. I love paisley and would really like to have a bunch of 4" or larger pieces of paisleys (did I spell that right?)
I can offer in kind. I have one piece of fabric that has sewing notions on it. This is an older piece of fabric and I don't think you would find on the market right now. I have enough to share five 6" squares. And I may have something else that somebody needs. I'll keep an eye on the thread.
What fun!

I am not looking for anything. I am NOT. I am definitely not!
I am on a fabric diet.
I do not need more fabric.
I have enough fabric (gasp!!!) for five lifetimes.
I am not looking for anything.
But if anyone should happen across a piece of warm coloured (maybe brown or red) fabric with a copper metallic pattern, swapping isn't really "buying" fabric is it? I mean - not REALLY.
I am making an etui and I have one copper fabric, and I would like to find a contrasting one. I actually found five on Equilter, but I WILL NOT buy fabric this month. (whimper - hope it's still there in a couple of weeks!)
Seriously, I am not looking for anything but I will read and see if I can help out anyone who is.

I sent a message off to the Time Lords asking them to transfer four hours of my afternoon (that I absolutley did not use at all) to you. As I am in front of you by so many hours there should be enough time for them to lengthen your day by at least a little bit.
Don't thank me - it's the very least I could do for a fellow quilter lol

I'm always looking for plumbing related fabric, from toilets to privies ideally. I don't know if there ever has been such an animal but if it ever exists, I want some.
I like a wider variety of fabrics, from purples to batiks to Civil War repro to stuff suited for crazy quilts, but that's a like and not a Need.

This isn't fabric but I found it when I did a search for outhouse on quiltshops.com. Unique to say the least! lol

Not *yet* fabric, perhaps, Georg! But, if you really want some, get a plumbers' catalogue, photograph what you want, and then do some transferring from the photographs to fabric. I've seen this done more and more - and I love the results. . In message , Georg writes

I could beg Da for jpgs of his lecture, couple it with the scanned in pics I have collected of plumbing through history and make Da one heck of a nifty quilt... ;) Yes, my Da has a slideshow/humorous lecture on the passing of the backhouse... started by his Da. I think all of us are lucky to not be named after plumbing luminaries like Thomas Crapper or Sir John Harrington.

I love the outhouse sewing kit! Very clever.
I am looking for a scarecrow about 3" or taller. I want to make a city wall-hanging next year and we have a scarecrow festival in Oct.
Thanks. Debra in Idaho
