    Checking one of the bucket list! Woo hoo!

    Yes, I was hoping there would be enough interest for us to collect enough to make the whole quilt. This will get us pretty close.

    Nice try with the "sign up at the last minute". We got ya down.

    But seriously, sign up when/if you want for as many sets as you like. No pressure, not today anyway.

    Besides my longarm quilting, I have 4 quilts to make from scratch before July 1....one baby quilt, 2 signature quilts and one memory quilt.

    If I figured correctly, I'll only need 9 1/2" of fabric to cut 150 2 1/2" charms.....and then there's the box of 2 1/2" strips I have!

    Thanks for hosting the swap.

    Oh green...I have been collecting green fabrics for something yet to be determined. Really, I have no idea what I am going to make with them.

    If you post a picture of your project, I might be willing to share some green 2" squares with you. Hint hint.

    30 sets all cut? Already? Where is the high 5 button on this thing?

    If I get a chance, I send in more sets than the 16 I signed up for. Hope that's okay. I'll let you know for sure in just a few days. I always like to do the maximum number, but the last few weeks have been crazy. Our debit card was compromised due to malware in Mapco gas company's computer system (a lot of other people were affected, too), and our bank was a royal nightmare to deal with despite their assurances that their customers aren't responsible for unauthorized purchases ... and we ended up changing banks ... and then we got a new puppy who is adorable but also a handful ...

    Anyway, I'll try to cut some more squares this week.
    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here.

    @moonrise you certainly have your hands full. 16+/- plus the puppy as bribery is just fine.

    Pre cuts (unwashed) can be the perfect choice for this swap but use what's in your stash (washed or unwashed). If you are concerned about what you receive, take care to prepare your bounty to fit your needs.

    Swappers, if this changes anything for you, my apologies. PM me. Thank you.

    Oh I've got to be crazy but here I am going to sign up. We really need a support group for 2 1/2" charms. I need to pm once I figure out how many I can do.

    I pulled out the accucutter yesterday and have started on cutting my 30 plus sets. This morning I pressed more FQ's. Will be cutting more of them today. This makes it so quick to cut the squares, with just a little bit of prep can cut quickly.
