    Here is a cute way to use left-over squares! A placemat using fussy cut charms.

    One day, when I am frayed and strained and drizzle at the end, please someone cut a square and put me in a quilt that I might keep a child comforted.

    Thank you owlvamp and sewbizgirl. That's the joy of doing the I Spies - kids love them! No problem sharing, and starting my collection over is also part of the fun. Owlvamp, thank you for your offer, but hopefully, she'll join in one of the upcoming swaps!

    This is an adorable idea. It would be great to take when your in a restaurant. A nice way to keep a child quiet and busy. Might have to whip up a couple for my daughter to use. Thank you or sharing the idea.

    I got mine today as well! I especially appreciate whoever contributed the castle charms. My 3 yr old snatched those up immediately to add to "her quilt pile"! : )

    Mine also arrived yesterday! Thanks everyone! Love them! The castles are one of my favorites, too. And to whoever sent the foxes with mustaches and sweater vests and monocle--if you bought it recently, do you know what it was? I may have to look for some of that!

    I didn't contribute them but aren't they the cutest? they are called Fox and The Houndstooth Foxes by Robert Kaufman - and fabric.com has them on-sale through today.https://www.fabric.com/buy/0320875/f...oth-foxes-aqua
    Plus a really cute bow-tie print and glasses that are part of the same line. I saw these yesterday.

    I received my squares and found some really cute prints in them - thanks everyone!
    One day, when I am frayed and strained and drizzle at the end, please someone cut a square and put me in a quilt that I might keep a child comforted.

    I was away for the weekend, but got home this evening and my package was here! Great fabrics. Some were exquisitely fussy cut and I thank those who took the pains to do that for us! It made your squares special.

    Thank you to all participants!

    Weren't the safety pins cut so straight and neatly? I've already used the lobster block in two projects, loved it! Already used the teapot/coffee pot on the black background too! So many fun charms, thanks again!

    Hi All -

    I contributed both the castle print and the foxes. They are both new lines, as I was out of big enough pieces to Swap! The castles are from the Storybook Line by Kate and Birdie for Moda, and the line comes in 2 colorways, the aqua and the pink. The foxes are The Fox and the Houndstooth is by Andie Hanna for Robert Kaufman. I got both at fabric.com but there are a lot of shops carrying the lines.

    Owlvamp, I got mine, thanks so much!

    Hi Givio, I didn't get any of the pink and orange castle, (I contributed the blue background castle print), sorry if I caused confusion as I didn't know there was another one!
