    I would like to swap. I'm sorting sets right now, so I'm not certain how many there will be. I will let you know soon. Mine will be all cotton -- no batiks. I have zillions of 2.5 inch squares in a tub and never really knew why. I guess I have a reason now!

    Just before reading about this swap I pulled out all of my flannels and decided to cut them into 6" squares and make lap quilts from it all. When I start in on my cottons I will cut the 2.5" squares.

    I am searching and thinking, I think I have enough to do max on both, but I will send you a PM when I finish counting, LOL, sometimes counting is harder than cutting!

    @psailer - Not sure whose avatar you are asking about. Mine is Hoopsister's MysteryQuilt 1011. Name of the quilt is "Card Trick."

    @Jannie and jarenie- I have both down!! Yipee!!

    @marytoddliz - Fingers crossed for you joining lol... counting isn't hard for me, cutting is. I cut alot of stuff. But if it's super pretty...oh boy is that hard.

    Marybeth, A year ago I had ZERO Batiks. (GASP) Today I have 20.....my daughter and I joined QB and started swaping in luvTooQuilt's 10.5" swap and I think I picked Batiks for every set I did. I just fell in love with them. Now I love them even more and have a really hard time cutting some pieces they're just so pretty!

    I'm really excited about this swap! I've received so many gorgeous 1.5" stamps that it made me want to work with bigger pieces. I've got a few 2.5" already cut. I think I'll take it slow & easy so I don't burn out.

    Thanks for hosting this swap SheriR.
