Thanks for stopping by, but the swap is now full!
I've been wanting to make an "i spy" quilt for a long time. I'm too impatient to slowly collect enough appropriate fabric and I keep missing out on all the charm swaps. I figured the best solution was to host my own swap! Want to join in the fun? I'm looking for 55 participants (US residents only for my first swap). You send me 56 charms of one fabric and get 56 unique charm squares in return. What a deal!
If you know of anybody that may be interested, please pass this along. I'm fearful that my first swap will be a huge flop!
to join the swap:
- Leave a comment on this post if you want to join the swap. Leave an e-mail address if you are a no-reply blogger. I will e-mail you to confirm your spot in the swap.
- Purchase one yard of 100% cotton, designer fabric appropriate for an "i spy" quilt. (No Hancocks or JoAnns and no licensed prints.) We will be exchanging 5 inch charms so make sure the scale of the print you choose is appropriate.
- After you purchase your fabric, upload a picture to the Flickr group. Do this as soon as possible so we can make sure there aren't any duplicates.
- Do not prewash your fabric. Cut your fabric into 5 inch charms. If you need a tutorial on cutting your fabric into charms, please read this tutorial by Elizabeth Hartman.
- Place your 5 inch fabric charms in a plastic zipper bag along with a 3x5 card with your name, mailing address and e-mail address. Mail your charms to me (my address will be e-mailed to you) and be sure to include a self-addressed stamped envelope so I can mail your charms back to you. The tentative due date for me to receive your charms will be March 15th. (I've never coordinated a swap before, so we'll see how quickly the group fills up!)
- Try and wait patiently for your charms to arrive in the mail then create something amazing!
I'm so excited I've already ordered my fabric!

There are so many cute fabrics, though. Here are some of my favorites from Fort Worth Fabric Studio (my new favorite on-line fabric source):
