    I Spy Swap 5" squares Deadline to join April 10th, 2013

    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,name and address along with board name. 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. 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.)


    3. Please send 100 percent cotton only. Do not prewash the fabric. Squares should be carefully rotary cut from UN-washed 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.

    Please do not send licensed designs, Disney characters, NFL mascots, and such. Be creative in your shopping...it would be great to not have too many sending me the same fabrics! (If you send me licensed or tiny prints, then I will have to mail them back to you.sorry.)

    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. Postage went up.
    ****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. The last day for me to receive the charms is April 10, 2013 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 on Saturday April 13th, 2013 Anything received after that will be returned to you.

    Letís have tons of fun,and of course you have to follow all the basic rules, found here.

    Tiny prints would be you couldn't see them unless right on top of the fabric. I seen some and I don't like them.
    I chose no Licensed prints because honestly I didn't want a lot of the princess ones or babyish ones. I love Mickey Mouse and some others but just decided I didn't want it at this time. Sorry

    Is there no delivery comfirmation postage included? If we want this can we add extra stamps or money? What size prints fit the requirements? Can the prints be seasonal?
    I guess I'm uncertain about the perimeters of this swap.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Yes I believe delivery confirmation comes with the flat rate envelopes. That's the way it was in the past.
    Yes seasonal is fine. The prints just need to be able to be seen and not when you are just on top of the fabric.
    Basically you don't want to squint just to see what's on your block.

    owlvamp-not to be harsh but maybe others in the swap wanted princess or babyish ones. I have been working on an I spy quilt for a 15 month old. I thought I would join this swap to get more fabrics for it, but it seems my time would be wasted. I have been fortunate to be involved in I Spy swaps here on the board before and received many fabrics to use in it. Gook luck with your swap.

    I'm in for 6 set..............can't wait...........

    I don't mind not having licensed designs........most of the time they are too large for 5 inch squares to cut without doing fussy cutting..........as far as I'm concerned there are lots of prints out there that are not licensed and fit into the babyish category. I plan on one fabric that is young young kid fabric of animals which was in with the baby fabric. Mine will be a variety of boy ...girl..young up to age 8 or 9......and colors.....so please don't decide not to join because licensed fabrics are a no no......................

    From doing I spy swaps for awhile now I know that people differ so much as to what I spy fabric looks like.........I carry around with me a cut out 5" square from a cereal box to audition fabric before purchasing ...nothing like getting a square with half an image in it ..........I've actually gotten the backend of a cow and nothing else in the square............so all I ask is to consider the image size.......

    Anyways lets all have lots of fun with it.............I love sitting down when I receive my package of I spy blocks and seeing all the different fabrics..............can't wait.............
