    Think of it this way....One bag should contain 50 different fabrics. The baggies can have 'the same different fabrics' but you cannot duplicate a fabric in a bag. You can send in a maximum of 15 bags.

    It's pretty easy to do...from large or small pieces of fabrics. I start by laying out my 15 piles and go around placing one fabric on each. If I have 6 charms then they're only placed on six piles. When I cut my next charms, I start placing them on the piles where I left off and keep going around and around till I have 50 different charms on each pile.

    Signing up for 15 sets of Cotton Candy!

This is so awesome since I now have someone in my family who I inherited my love of quilting from, distant but still cool to me!
    That's a GREAT story!

    HAHAHA! When you quilters have been saying "Done with Christmas" it really was confusing me here! Then the coffee started working and I realized you were done cutting your Christmas Charms! Hahahaha!

    My plan for the Cotton Candy is to just make 4 patches out of them and go from there...don't ask me where...but I'm going there!

    Have an awesome quilting day!

    Well I was almost ready to mail, I had finished 44 fabrics, I had my stacks of 15 and I put them on a Styrofoam meat tray and on the top shelf where I keep extra batting. Hubby needed to cut some batting for place mats and dropped the whole tray! I suppose you can guess what I spent a good part of my day doing! URG....

    I was going to make him do it but I know you want nice neat stacks of "Different" fabric, he tells me I put them back in little piles so what is the problem!

    OH well he just doesn't get it!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!
