My Quilt Project Needs Your Help ~ Fabric, Scraps Recycled Fabric for Dish Cloths!!!

I'm in the process of making hexagons to put together a quilt top.  It's my dream to put together a quilt top something like this Water Colour Quilt that I'm in love with.  So to get the effect I want will require a lot of different fabrics.  I'm talking A LOT of  I also don't want to buy new fabric for this quilt.  I want to challenge myself, my brain & the creative process to re-use & re-purpose fabric.  So in keeping with that challenge I want to use fabric that I have on hand as well as upcycle sheets, pillow cases, clothes, that are the right fabric.  So I've been wondering how I can get a variety of fabric into my quilt top?  I'm going to frequent Thrift Stores of course & look for pillow cases, sheets & fabric. 
But then I had another idea, & I have to admit I think it's a brilliant idea.  I'll put the request out there to other crafters, quilters, recyclers, fabric artists etc.  So here is your mission of you chose to accept  I need fabric & for your fabric you will get hand knitted dish cloths.  This is my idea:
~ For about a Fat Quarter Size 18"x22" I'll send you two hand knitted dish cloths
~ If you think it's less than 18"x22" I'll send you one hand knitted dish cloth
~ Fabic Accepted:
   ~ any 100% cotton, or flannel
   ~ sheeting or pillow cases (washed  In the case of sheets I don't need the whole a
~ Condition:
   ~ scraps will work but please, nothing smaller than 2" x 2"
   ~ used is fine as long as it's been washed & as long as it's not to worn
~ Colours:
   ~ any colour & all colours needed
Please help me with my quilt & I'll send you great hand knitted dish cloths!!!!!!!!

If interested please email me via the email link in my profile & I'll get back to you.  Thanks everyone!!!!

Thanks for visiting my blog, and it never ceases to amaze me the wonderfully creative ways artists reuse and recycle to recreate. Love what you do with ragged cloth, too!

Hey! I swear I had posted on here but apparently not. lol, I'm such a spaz. I would love to help you out! I have enough fabric to probably start my own store, so you would be helping me de-stash some too ;) I can't find your email to save my life but if you want you can email me and I can send you some pics so you can pic and choose if you want.
