    I've been straightening my novelty fabrics and I was wondering, what would be a good size square to offer for I-Spy Blocks??

    How many should I put in a grouping and what would be a good price?

    the last 3 I spy swaps I did were 5 inch exchanges, so some may want that size to add to their collection.
    not sure on count and price, maybe similair to charm pack?

    Thank you so much for letting me know :)

    I didn't see that post floating around.

    I'm glad to know what size - that is a big help.

    What is a normal count for a quilt?

    Do most people border each square?

    I am making 3 quilts for my kids and am using a 1" sashing, but everyone is different, so far on my sons I have used about 80 squares and may need more.

    Most of the swaps here have been for 5" blocks. It would be nice to be able to add to these that we already have :D

    50 make a 22 1/2" X 22 1/2" and with borders and sashing make up a nice size baby quilt too

    100 5" blocks makes a 45" X 45" quilt, a nice size for a toddler.

    So Maybe offer them in groups of 50? :D:D:D

    I will be sewing them all together, no sashings, making it more of a challenge to find the squares.
    Some add sashings or incorporate them into blocks...

    I don't have any right now. I have been straightening my novelty collection and thought I should try to sell some. I had no clue a swap was going on.

    Was there anything in particular you were looking for? maybe we can work out a trade

    I'm looking for boy novelty fabric. My 3 year old wants a new quilt and I thought an I spy would be a good one. He likes super heroes, cars, veggie tales, bugs, sports, fish, things that boys like, lol. Most of my stuff is girly. I don't have a 5in templet or I would find and cut them myself. I would love to trade or work something out with you.

    oh no.. looks like we both need to go buy a 5" square. I just went through mine and I have a 4.5" and a 6.5"

    I have so many boy novelty fabrics, sports, ocean, bugs, frogs, character, etc.

    I do have to go to Wal-Mart tomorrow (one w/o a fabric department) I wonder if they carry 5" squares?

    Kriscraft I have the 4.5 and the 6.5 in ones too. I have cut lots of fabrics up already with these, mostly small flower prints so far. Is there anything you are wanting.
