    Please include me in the next charm swap. I am addicted to a certain website using 2.5 charms. I just completed one and I started on another. Each block contains 100 different charms x 12 blocks. Thanks and if this one needs a new person I can mail something today or next week. I am leaving Wed-Sat.

    Hi Everyone, here's my progress so far..I sew 3 of the 5 together chain piecing then set the remaining 2 on top of the 3-piece...I then stack them so I don't lose track of them...I have over 100 sets done this way so far...here's a photo.

    I'm doing the same as Honchey. Everything I have is sewn in groups of 3 with the other 2 pinned to it at the moment so I can't misplace them. When the new ones come, I will sew their 3's and then start playing. I have less than 100 sets so my quilt will not be huge. I suppose I will lay them on the bed and start sewing. It will be motivational since I won't be able to go to bed until it's finished!

    I didn't post a photo for that...I stack the 5 piece sets turning each one slightly so that I can pick the set up easy by the corners..these are placed to the right of the sewing machine on the table where it's comfortabe for me to grab them...where I placed them earlier... I take all 5 pieces up then remove 2.. face them right sides together stitch them..don't remove from the machine. the 3 remaining pieces are on the bed of the machine as far to the right...next to the pillar...leave them there....pick up another set and repeat the procedure...just make sure the 3 pieces are placed in the same order as the 2 piece you have sewn...when you are done sewing them all...remove the chained 2 piece's from the machine and clip and stack them in the same order that you sewed them...turn the 2 piece stack over....turn the 3 piece stack over.....pick up a sewn 2 piece open & finger press...take a 3 piece set..remove one..place the 2 remaining pieces on the left side of the machine...sew the 1 piece to the 2 sewn set..do not remove from the machine....repeat the same procedure as you did in the beginning.... when all the sewing is done..remove the chained 3 piece...clip and stack in the same order sewn...turn the 3 piece set over stack over as well as the remaining 2 pieces...finger press the 3 piece...place the 2 piece on top...if you sew & stack in the right order then turn them over...you don't have to scramble to match them up later on...you do it as you sew...

    I have been tracking your packages ladies. And guess what...today is squishy day for many of you...if you've been good. But hey, even if you've been bad, squishy day should come tomorrow.

    Can I tell you how exited I am ! My package came today and I am in amaze as to all the wonderful fabrics. Thanks to all the Ladies (and Gents if it applies) to whom participated. I have fabrics from many states and when I make this "charming" quilt all of Ya'lls name will be on the back and the state you're from. What a wonderful gift. This was my 1st 2.5 inch swap and I'm hooked just like the Charm Pack's. Unfortunately my "Charming Quilt" will have to stand in line. I'm committed to 4 children's quilts before it and with the summer here, boys all day. I am not working too much on them. Again THANKS Fraew you were great!!!!!

    I can now join the happy club.. I'm so thrilled my guests left, as I would have a hard time explaining why I am hugging a bag of fabric squares. Thanks a lot Fraew for being a great host, and to all that joined in the fun.. Besides getting the squares, we have such a great time leading up to our packages arriving..
