    Picture is not showing up... will have to try again.. could only get the links. sorry. total operator error on my part!

    I saw this quilt on a blog but didn't keep track of which blog it was :( It was one of those rainy days and I just kept clicking and clicking on links. Not sure how I got there and tried like heck to get back there by retracing my steps but could not. I want to give the quilter credit, but don't know who it is. My apologies.

    Anyway, I love this quilt idea and would love to do it, but I don't have enough variety in my fabrics and I am just starting out so I don't have much in my stash yet. Is anyone else interested in doing some kind of swap for this quilt idea? I would be happy to organize it. In my head I'm thinking, if there is interest, people could mail me some "noun" fabrics (people, places, things !) and I could divide it all up and mail it back. That way people could get a variety of fabrics that they maybe don't have.

    Anyone else up for something like this???? If so, let me know :)

    I see it as a grown-up version of an I-Spy quilt.

    And instead of piecing the squares into a quilt, they're just stitched down (you can see the thread in the pictures) according to however the quilter could make them fit. I guess the name comes from the fact that they do sort of look like stamp collection sheets.

    Anyway, cool concept.

    You might check over in the Swaps section of this board. Maybe there is an I-Spy swap going on already. At least you can get a sense of how they're run here (and that would be the forum to "adverise" a new one). Check the rules first - there's is a sticky post at the top.

    I don't think this board allows links, so as it's just going to show up as a link anyway and not as an image, you might as well just post this:

    No stamping. All the images are cut out of fabric and then each one is stitched down. A lot of work, but it looks really cool!

    You are right - all the images are fabric and each one is stitched down. Thanks for the info on the swap forum. I'll check over there.

    Thanks everyone for your help. I am kinda new to this board, (obviously!) and didn't know about the swap forum or the rules for them. Makes sense though! Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
