    Thanks to everyone that was willing to wait - owlvamp should have them and be ready to swap this weekend!
    One day, when I am frayed and strained and drizzle at the end, please someone cut a square and put me in a quilt that I might keep a child comforted.

    Cute idea for those with children/grandchildren.

    I got my package today too... What lovely fabrics everyone sent in! I am loving the tiny 2.5 minis, too. The red with black Scotties is my very favorite!

    With all the pairs I will make a "matching game/find the pairs" quilt.

    Thank you everyone for another successful swap, and thanks to Owlvamp for doing the work.

    Got mine today too! All the charms are wonderful! I particularly like some of the yellows, specifically a bunch of bananas and a lemonade theme. The fried chicken is great too, as are all the insects. Thanks so much everyone!

    So much fun!!!!!!! Thanks, everyone! I've been planning a food themed picnic blanket for a while and I can't wait to make blocks with all the yummy food fabric that was in this swap! Also loved all the creative things you play with at a picnic. Who found yo-yo fabric?!?!

    Here's one I made before... all pairs and you get to find the matches. It's not easy! You have to look and look sometimes.

    I can't wait to try some of the I Spy books!

    I couldn't sleep early this morning - and what else is there to do than play with fabric at 3 am? - So I went through all of the squares again - arranging and re-arranging - love the fabrics!! Thank you to all!

    I love it, Sewbizgirl! What are the dimension? 8 x how many blocks?

    I just made a matching game for a firend's kids but forgot to get a picture before I gave it to the kids! Not a quilt, more like a memory game. I used 12 matches. Instead of exact matches, I used 2 of each object but they are different--2 crayons, 2 bikes, 2 zebras, etc.

    Library.Lil, I like this idea. It would be great for older kids. What about a quilt of things that go together like...hammer and nails, milk and cookies. I wonder if there are enough "go together" fabrics to make a quilt? Fun idea anyway.

    Wow, you all are coming up with all kinds of game quilts we could make! Those are good themes for the books, too.

    The quilt I showed you is 80 squares, 40 pairs all mixed up. It comes out at about 36" wide by 45" long. You can always go bigger, tho.
