Arrange a fabric swap with friends or guild members. Keep the rules simple: Bring fat quarters or larger pieces of quilt shop quality fabric. Swap for as many fat quarters as you have brought. This is a great way to collect enough fabrics for a particular color palate (blue and yellow for example) or theme (Christmas for example) for your next quilt.
