Noodle Swaps

In the beginning of January I entered 2 noodle swaps on swap-bot. I entered both the regular swap as well as the modern swap. A noodle is a 5" by length-of-material strip. In the swap you are assigned 5 people that you send to and 5 people that send to you. Depending on how many are in the game, they may or may not be the same. These are the noodles that I received, and sticking off the top are some little extras that where in a couple of the packages.

I am going to use my swap noodles for a values quilt. I got started last week and have about 20 squares done from scraps and noodles. The brown and pink fabric is one of the fabrics that I sent out.

Sign ups are open till February 12 for the next round, so if this sounds like fun here are the links:

Round #7 US Version


MODERN US & Canada #2

Reminder, till 2/12 each of your comments are an entry in the February Giveaway!


  1. Hey Diane ... Oh I love these little HST for you value quilt ... I have been collecting fabrics for mine ... cutting 4" squares out of everything I can get my hands on! I'm aiming to make mine a King size so I need lots! Fancy our little swap?

  2. How fun! I'd never heard of "noodles". Your fabrics look great...can't wait to see how you put them together.

  3. I do the noodle swap too...just recently the modern, it is such fun to get treasures in the mail! Have we been partners yet??

  4. Hadn't heard of the Noodle swap so thanks for the link Diane. I've seen some value quilts around and they look great. Looking forward to seeing yours!

  5. I have just enjoyed looking through your blog Diane.You have made some beautiful quilts.
    I love making scrappy quilts and things.
    The noodle swap sounds like a great way to collect different fabrics.

  6. I had such a BLAST doing the last 5" noodle swap! Maybe we will be partner again! :) Can't wait to see your values quilt - which I've never heard of before. You ROCK Diane!

  7. The noodle swap sounds so fun, Diane. Thank you for visiting me and leaving the kind comment.

  8. What a great idea. I'm not sure if I have any noodles lying around, but I am sure I could make some! How fun

  9. Looks like a fun swap. I've was in a few 2.5" noodle swaps and got some beautiful fabrics back.

  10. Yes, this looks fun, but this is the first time I'm hearing about noodles! It will be interesting to see your finished project.

  11. The noodle swap looks like fun, but what is a value quilt?
