    Been on the fence about this one, but decided to swap! I have tons of I Spy fabric so this will be an easy one for me. I'm in for 15 bags of 10, Red.

    I have no memory of which of my fabrics have been washed and which haven't... and I can promise you it will never make a difference! All of them will work fine together.

    Will pm you too, Red.

    Oh, also wanted to say I am the same way as Macybaby with scents. They make me very ill. Anything scented is going right into an outside trash can. I just can't work with it. Please don't send me scented fabric. I appreciate it very much!

    Also, with regard to having to turn the 5" ruler off-grain to get a good fussy cut, I should think it's fine. I have done this many times, to capture an image in a "tossed" setting. The off grain is never a problem for me.

    Wow, there are 19 of us so far. Nice, for those who do not want duplicates. I know moonrise likes those, so I'll see what I can do, but at least for the rest of us, there shouldn't be a problem.

    Yay!

    I still have to cut mine. But that is a good rainy day project when I am struggling with getting my mojo back to work on other projects.

    It is supposed to be raining most of the day so this is my rainy day project. My online orders haven't arrived yet but I expect that this will be the day!
    Raining or sunny, I wish you all a great day!

    Pamela, I toyed with getting the charm cutter for my accuquilt. You'll have to let us know how you like it compared to using a rotary cutter and ruler

    I LOVE it! I was able to cut all my charms in such a short time last night and with no pain! I would like to amend my commitment to 12 bags rather than 15 though, as that is how many charms I can get out of a fat quarter. Im so excited for this swap. I really had fun shopping for it.

    You are more than welcome to swap 12, Pamela, and I'm glad to hear the cutter helped with the pain level! No one wants to have a hobby that brings that on!

    I have had a number of people contact me with concerns their fabrics were not going to pass muster, so to speak due to being washed, unwashed, cut off grain, with grain....goodness the concerns were overwhelming! It also caused me concern because some folks were considering dropping out because of it.

    I do Not want these swaps to be so over-burdened with demands it causes stress. This is supposed to be a fun swap, and they typically are, but some of the questions, requests, demands, are "sucking the fun out of it" as my daughter would say. So let's make sure that doesn't happen.

    You can send washed fabric. You can send Unwashed fabric. You can send fabrics cut on the grain or not on the grain. As long as the fabric is "conversational" as Pamela put it (love that term, it fits this swap perfectly!), and children or adults can "find" an item in it....it is good to go. ((I really wanted to do this in a Dr. Seuss rhyme, but just didn't have the energy or the time, LOL))

    I don't know about anyone else, but I feel like my quilt board peeps are my friends and I don't want to add any stress to anyone's life, especially my friends! Let's play nice in the sandbox and when we do, I bet we will get a mountain of fun-filled fabrics that will make Everyone smile. Isn't that what life's about? Finding reasons to smile?

    Of course it is!
    (okay, life is also about going fabric shopping, but we can incorporate that into these swaps! How Convenient!!)



    Thanks for reading, my special online friends ((hugs))

    Please disregard my question/request about duplicates. I didn't mean to be any trouble.

    It's kind of funny - in that most of us feel we'll be OK with what we get. However we are all worried that we might send out something that someone else won't care for!

    I think if we all stick to "If we would be happy to get it, it's OK to send" we will be fine. My personal problem with smells is my problem, and I'll deal with it on my end so no one else needs to be concerned.

    One time I bought some old sewing machine parts online, and they smelled like old sewing machine parts. The seller thought the smell was unpleasant, so they tossed a scented dryer sheet in the box to cover the normal smell.

    I mailed out my package yesterday. Red, you should receive it Monday.

    I got a little carried away when cutting, so each bag has at least 10 charms each.

    Dale in SD is me - I thought I wrote macybaby on both the front and back of the envelope, but I didn't check it after DH put the label on so maybe he managed to cover them up.
