I think you need to take the time you need to care for yourself and your husband and then do the swap That will give us all time to buy some awesome fabric and have a wonderful swap next time. I am looking forward to it!!!! In fact, I just heard about a quilt shop in close to me that I had no idea was even there! Headed there Monday morning!!!
i'LL BE IN FOR THE NEXT SWAP, WHENEVER IT IS. MARGIE lOU fmhall2
Owlvamp -- Take a break and just take care of yourself. No swap until you are 100% back from surgery. I have plenty of squares to make a couple quilts.
Two months will give us time to find the correct fabric used in I-Spy quilts and fussy cut as necessary.
To answer your question I would say let's swap as before: 20 swatches per bag/6 bags max, and add a twist, but this time with true batiks. (Just my thought.)
Take care and heal fast.
Okay wonderful will wait till September and then post a new swap. Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts.
I left on vacation the day my squares were scheduled to arrive. I'm new to this site and swapping so I was very excited to swap. I had to wait another week but finally got my held mail yesterday and am happily sorting through squares.
I love my squares! So many cute prints I have not seen before! Yes, there were some that I would not consider eye spy material but those will go into my scrap pile and used for other projects.
I am definitely excited to do another swap and will be on the lookout for new prints at the local stores. Or shop my stash:)
Thank you Sandra for coordinating this swap. I appreciate the time you took to make this happen.
My name is Julie and I just joined the Quilting Board.
I am looking forward to the September swap! I will shop for fabrics this week and start cutting.
I just had my first granddaughter this summer and I figured if I start collecting now I will have plenty of time to gather my fabric and complete an I Spy quilt. I just finished her baby quilt and I am looking forward to making another quilt for her!
From reading the messages everyone seems very nice and helpful and I look forward to being a part of the group.
I'm so glad I looked at this thread. I joined the board too late to join this swap, and I was looking for an i spy charm swap. I'm looking forward to the next one and will start shopping now!
Glad you two joined! Owlvamp does a great job with these swaps! :-)
Owlvamp, since everyone is wanting to shop, do you have a theme yet for the next swap?
