Does anyone have a couple yards of red fabric (solids or prints, multiple smaller cuts are fine) they'd like to trade? I have a bunch of cute retro prints, sedate florals, bright Hawaiian prints with planes in the pattern, and kid-friendly flannel prints to offer.

I've got a ladybug quilt pattern I'm itching to do (Stargazey Quilts' Ladybirdz) and very little red in my stash.

I'll look and see if I have any reds in my sewing closet and let you know.

Thank you!

I'd also be happy to do sewing for you in exchange.

Freecycle
Have you ever heard of Freecycle.org? There are often people offering different fabrics for free.

Re: Freecycle
I have. I rehomed a lot of things I didn't want to move cross-country the last time I moved with Freecycle.

I'm picky when it comes to fabric, so I posted some cross-stitch things to swap on a community here on LJ and someone offered me a box of fat quarters and half-yard cuts of quilting cotton in exchange. I am thrilled. (:

No problem! I scored a box of fat quarters in a craft swap through cross_stitch and I've asked Santa for a red fat quarter stash builder in my stocking this year. (:

I love living in such a crafty family that holidays mean stash building and swapping things from our unfinished projects. One of my aunts had dozens of unfinished quilts stashed away until another aunt bought one of those huge long-arm quilting machines. Now she's got so many finished quilts she's been selling some of them at the quilt store they run together.

BTW, re a past comment asking whether I can sew leather, the answer is yes for lighter weights. I've been keeping an eye out for a proper leather sewing machine, but my sturdy old metal-geared machines can handle lightweight leather. I can do it by hand too, though that's obviously slower.
