    I Spy Picnic Swap *Dead Line to Join is June 9th, 2014*

    I Spy Picnic Swap Dead Line to Join is June 9th, 2014


    Please cut your charms before joining.

    Charms need to be in my hands by June 16th, 2014
    Will start swapping on June 19th, 2014

    If you would like to be part of the I Spy Charm Swap, here are the guidelines. Please read carefully:

    1. Please pm me telling me that you want to enter the swap. In the pm please tell me how many sets you want to do,I will then send you a pm giving you my mailing address.


    2. We will be swapping sets of 20 charm squares, each 5 inch square. You may send more than one set of 20 charms, up to 6 sets. Each set that you send to me CAN be cut from the same fabric (or 20 different fabrics) . You should be able to cut 20 five inch squares from around 1/2 yard of fabric depending on the design spacing. If you send more than one set, please use a different fabric for each set. I will divide up the charms randomly and return back to you 20 different charms per set. At least that is the goal, and I will try hard to do that! (If you send several sets, please realize that you might get duplicate charms in return.) If you do the twist no fabric from your originals are to be in there.


    3. Please send 100 percent cotton only. Prewash or not prewash is exceptable . Squares should be carefully rotary cut from 100% cotton fabric. Keep in mind that your squares could end up in a child's quilt. Select fabrics that will hold up to a lot of love, wear, tears, draggin', cuddlin', washing, and trips through the dryer. Fabrics that fray easily, or are fairly easy to see through are not good candidates for this swap.

    Please be advised that fabrics that are not square, squares too wonky or too off grain, squares that are shedding, squares that contain selvages, or those that are not 5" square will be returned unswapped. Be accurate in cutting the 5 inch squares. The novelty design should be good size, not tiny...it needs to be easily recognizable from a distance.Try to have the character centered on the charm as much as possible.

    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.

    4. Place each set of 20 charms in a zip lock sandwich size baggie. INCLUDE your name, address, and QB name on a piece of paper and put it inside baggies. Please buy postage or concealed cash put in your envelopes. You just need to give me the correct postage. If postage is not included I will have to wait to send your charms back until you send the correct postage. I will provide flat rate envelopes they cost $5.95 now. Try to get the new "forever" postage that's available for flat rate. anyone who sends that won't need to send cash, and won't need to worry about rate changes.
    ****Outside the US needs to add more postage for it will cost more. I'm sure when you send it you will know what to send. Please send correct amount for I will not ship until correct amount is received.****

    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.

    Let's do 15 different fabrics in each Baggie. Max you can do is 6 sets!
    I will swap Baggie for Baggie .

    To qualify you have to Belong in the regular swap and do at least two sets.

    6.The last day for me to receive the charms is June 16th, 2014. I will post when I receive your charms. If you are sending them from outside the US, please keep this in mind as it sometimes takes weeks for packages to arrive. I will divide up the charms During the week and send out by June 23rd, 2014. Anything received after that will be returned to you.



    Remember to send in what you would like to receive back.
    Letís have tons of fun,and of course you have to follow all the basic rules, found here.

    I want to make sure I understand the twist. 15 different small-scale prints in each baggie. Baggies can have the same prints as each other. Twists are not picnic themed. Do I have that correct?

    Yes you can have all your baggies the same as long as there is 15 different fabrics in each Baggie. Twist does not have to be picnic theme just small prints. Please be creative in this.

    Let everyone put your thinking caps on. Let's try not to use stars and hearts, dots. I'm sure most have this in there stash.

    I was looking on fabric.com last night. I saw thermoses, fruit pies, deviled eggs, ants digging tunnels, very hungry caterpillar! Lots of fun ideas. I'm going to wait a bit to see if I'm ready to commit to this round though. ; )

    owlvamp, it is very possible that I am blind, but I don't see the requirement for the fabric to be food or picnic themed. I know and others who've done the last swap know, but anyone new might have missed this part.

    Oh Yes! I have lots of food fabrics. Not sure how many I can make into sets, but I definitely want to join in. I'll do some cutting today to see if I can estimate how many sets I can send. I'm thinking 6 if that's OK.....

    Ugh! I am so mad at myself!! When I went to make my first cuts in the birdhouse material, I had 2.5" on the mind, even though we said 5"! So.....I ended up with not enough for 15 full size, only 8. And the birdies FQ only gave me 12 full size. (I hadn't bought it with a swap in mind, thus the FQ purchase.)

    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!

    I'm going to join again but not officially yet, since I haven't cut anything. I LOVE the minis in our twist!
