    Had to order some fabric (darn!), but I'm in! My 6 sets will be: watermelons, fried chicken, grilled cheese sandwiches, M&M-like candies, chili peppers, snack mix (like Chex mix), and corn on the cob.

    (Yep, there are 7 listed, because the fried chicken is kind of a large print, so I'm not 100% sure if it'll be usable. I bought an extra for backup.)

    I'll have to let you know on the twist. I know I have enough for 4 sets, but I'm hoping to come up with 6.
    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.

    So anyone who gets a full size birdie will get an extra 2.5" birdhouse as a bonus, and full size birdhouse swappers will get a bonus 2.5" birdie. Here are the other twist fabrics. I love the birthday cakes!
    Okay, PeginCO, clearly we are sharing a brain when it comes to fabric choices. Not only did you beat me to the raccoons in Frizzymama's swap on Flickr, but now you have the birthday cakes I bought! :-)

    I wanted to double-check this also. The theme is anything food, plus any type of bug?

    Oh no! I'm sorry! Do you want to do the birthday cakes and I can use my tiny spools fabric? I can definitely use the birthday cakes for something else. (The fabrics I pictured are for the twist...so not necessarily bugs or picnic food, I think...just mini scale.) Really, I am fine with that. Just let me know.

    Nope, you beat me to it, fair and square! Besides, I like them enough to save them for another project. They're just so cute!!

    Here you go
    Be creative in your shopping...it would be great to not have too many sending me the same fabrics! In doing this I've only had a couple doubles. If you want you could post pictures of fabric it helps others in what they will send. Not a must though. This swap is all about a picnic. What ever you would bring to a picnic is a loud. Lots of insects/bugs and food. What would you put in your picnic basket? So put your thinking caps on. Ask if you have questions.

    It's under number three! Thanks

    5. **Now for the twist**.
    This is for those tiny prints on fabric. So the ones who would like to cut them to 2 1/2 " charms they can without losing the print. Any children's print. Please no lines, dots, flowers or things that you wouldn't want in a child's quilts please.

    Okay these are actually 5" charms for the twist. * ( So the ones who would like to cut them to 2 1/2 " charms they can without losing the print.)* I just put this here because some might want to cut there 5" into 2 1/2 " charms. I'm sorry for the confusion. If you cut them already send them in I'll trade them out. Did everyone think they are 2 1/2 inch charms? If so and you cut them already we can leave it at that.

    Oops! Yep, I already cut them into 2-1/2" charms, and have them packaged up and ready to go.
