    Or, instead of having a themed swap, we could focus on a color. Like, please try to send in one green background fabric. I'm having a hard time finding reds and greens these days.

    3) turn the pile to make it a diamond
    4) begin again, setting your six as a square on top the previous diamond
    5) repeat

    This way, all you have to do it pick up six at a time to swap them and we don't use crazy amounts of baggies. But if baggies are truly easier, I'm good with that, too.
    Yes this is the idea.

    Yes we could do this too. Like for the twist do solids, polka dots, swirls. Something in this manner. See we all have ideas.

    Sorry, I wasn't very clear in my post. I mean, I Spy fabrics with a red background or a green background.

    frizzymama13 thats really neat. how many of each color did you do? how many total charms for the swap? it would be neat to sew them like you have them too.

    We swapped 1 yard of fabric, so 56 5" charms. There were 9 different color options people could sign up for and 6 slots for each color (blue and green had 7 spots), which added up to 56. It was neat to see the variation within the colors that people chose. Some colors were harder to find than others, but the end result was so pretty!

    Sorry Owlie, I will have to wait till next month to join you again. I really don't have any fabrics at home that fit the theme. But, I will keep an eye here for next months. I am cutting some other things I already have on hand.
