So, we send you 40 squares of the same fabric. You divvy it up and send us back 40 different squares? If so, I'll play. I love collecting I Spy fabs.

Actually, you'll have three different fabrics of which you'll cut 40 squares from each for a total of 120 squares. That's if we have 40 participants. If we have 20 participants, you would cut 20 squares from each of your three fabrics for a total of 60 squares. You will receive as many squares as you send and they will all be different prints.

I hope that is clearer. Let me know if it's not. :D

When cutting up I Spy type fabrics, it's really nice to have the pieces "fussy cut" so that the design is at it's best.

Not all novelty prints cut up equally well into five-inch squares, so doing an "audition" of the fabric is a good thing before committing to it.

Excellent advice, bearisgray! I try to choose smaller scale, all-over prints to avoid fussy cuts. Here are some examples.

I will think on this for a couple days, at least until I can get to the store and see what they have.

I think we're going to have enough people to make this worthwhile! So here are more details:

1. Three different I Spy fabrics cut to 5" x 5" squares. The total of squares you'll need from each fabric will depend on how many people sign up. I'll have that information October 17. I'm hoping we get 40 participants, so you would cut 40 squares from each of your three fabrics. One square for each participant.

2. Deadline to sign up for this swap is October 16. If we get 40 before the sign up date, I will close the swap. Forty will be the maximum. The mailing date for your squares to me is November 20. You can start cutting now if you have the fabrics on hand.

Let me know if I left something out. Now go tell your friends and have them join us! :D And thanks for playing!
