    @moonrise you certainly have your hands full. 16+/- plus the puppy as bribery is just fine.

    Pre cuts (unwashed) can be the perfect choice for this swap but use what's in your stash (washed or unwashed). If you are concerned about what you receive, take care to prepare your bounty to fit your needs.

    Swappers, if this changes anything for you, my apologies. PM me. Thank you.

    Oh I've got to be crazy but here I am going to sign up. We really need a support group for 2 1/2" charms. I need to pm once I figure out how many I can do.

    I pulled out the accucutter yesterday and have started on cutting my 30 plus sets. This morning I pressed more FQ's. Will be cutting more of them today. This makes it so quick to cut the squares, with just a little bit of prep can cut quickly.

    mom and I share the cutter ......... it stays at her house which is about 30 ft from my front door. LOL We converted their garage into an apartment for me when she got sick.

    Yes now that we finally have it out of the closet is was stored in, will be much easier to use. LOL

    I have pressed about 50 FQ's today, cut them down to 13 in squares to make it easier in the accucutter. Fun part is putting all te sets together after layering the blocks.

    I can wait to see what comes in for this charming quilt addiction.

    I started going through my stash, and ironed most of what I need.. Now I have to wash the floor, as it is a sticky mess from the starch.. Since I use the kitchen counter to iron on, it isn't a problem.. I look forward to cutting the squares, as I find it relaxing in front of the t.v. The only problem I come up with, is since I am in a one bedroom apartment, the place is starting to look like a grenade went off in a fabric store, but I have to admit the place is pretty colorful...

    I have the best little grandson. I watched him on Monday and he took two long naps so grandma could cut squares. Now just have to package them up and send out.

    Everyone is so ambitious! I may have to make more than 9 sets out of sheer guilt lol! I know how moonrise feels - we have a puppy also and it takes over your whole life! He likes to lay on my feet when I sew and pretend he is a shark. Any fabric that swims in his vicinity always gets a nibble. He is so handsome though that I just can't help but laugh.

    Now Sheri you know we are close enough that we could always plan a cutting day. LOL If you ever want to come over and use the cutter....we could have a cutting party.

    It would be cheaper to drive to Dallas than to set myself up with a new toy.

    Thank you for the offer. You are a dear. Let's see how my schedule goes. We leave early in the morning to watch princess golf with her college team at NATIONALS in Florida. Today they ended SECOND and princess hit her best game ever!

    Next week I'm going with two of my daughters to visit family in Idaho for a week. LeSigh...I'll get it done. Just another crazy moment in my life right now LOL...

    All I can say is that I'm so happy someone decided to do this swap. I have a partially started section of this quilt and stopped because I didn't cut enough doing the swaps to have leftovers for this quilt...Now I will!!!

    We have 1 person about to start a "bucket list" quilt, one finishing a UFO and the rest of us petting our fabrics. I love it!

    As I am cutting my squares to trade, I am making a set for me. If I'm doing the math correctly, I should have enough for almost two quilts. I have just one problem I can think of.. This quilt requires a design wall, and since I am in a one bedroom apartment, I don't have a clue what I am going to do. It should be very fast to sew up, but I can't lay it out on the floor unless I ship the dog off.. Hmmm
