    Now remember the twist does not have to relate to the picnic theme. The twist is for tiny prints if someone wants to cut to 2 1/2". Charms. This way they can either have the 5 inch or cut to what they want it to be.

    Love love the fabric you choose. The fried chicken doesn't appear to look to big but you'll know when you get it.

    Would 6 people like to trade 15 mini charms (2.5") with me? They can go in a regular letter envelope.

    I will trade with you. Also if anyone else wants to trade can send it in their swap package and just leave me a note.

    Okay... so you want me to send them to you with my swap package and then you will send them out with the packages of whoever sends in a trade? That sounds good... no extra expense. I fussy cut my 2.5"s from my scraps. I don't have enough small print fabrics to make many 5" squares that can be quartered into 2.5"s, so I am only going to send 2 twists now, instead of the 6 I signed up for.

    So who else would like to trade for my boo-boos? They are bags of 15 2.5" squares. (You can cut some from your scraps that are too small for 5" squares.)

    Yes send them in your package to save on shipping. I will get mine ready for you. I can do six sets to if we get a total of seven players this way we don't get ours back.

    Yes, I think so, Library lil. If I understand, six people can ALSO send in a Baggie of 15 different 2.5" squares. Btw, my earlier twist pictures are misleading because they show 6 sets of identical prints - the rules say 15 different prints! So my sets will be those prints plus several more.

    And Owlvamp, I will do a 2.5" Baggie to swap with you and Sewbizgirl, too!!

    I'll send in my six 2-1/2" baggies and hopefully there will be enough to swap.
    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here. Please note that I'm usually unavailable on weekends, but I'll get back to you on Monday.

    Well... we need 5 more to do six of these mini sets (15 different). If you can't/don't want to do six sets, we need more than 5 people! Can you do more than one set? Look through your scraps....

    Yes who sends in 2 1/2 inches I will swap them out. Once you cut up the fifteen you'll have four sets and then do another fifteen you'll have four more sets. That's if you use 30 different fabrics. Hopefully more will send in if not we will do our best. I want to make a few of the I spy books so I can have triples or more doesn't matter to me.

    Same here... I'm planning to do some I Spy books to donate to the children's hospital so I don't mind duplicates. I had those books in mind when I cut my mini squares.

    My fabric arrived today, and I just finished cutting it.

    I was unfolding the corn fabric to cut it, and noticed that it seemed a lot bigger than the 1/2 yard that I ordered. It was almost a yard! Then I saw a sticker on it. It said, "Jackpot! You got the end of the bolt!" How cool is that?

    The fried chicken fabric is particularly awesome. It's so realistic that it looks like a photograph. I had to do some serious fussy-cutting, but I ordered extra of it just in case.

    Anyway, I'll hit the squares with an iron tomorrow ... it's almost 90 degrees outside, so I don't feel much like ironing right now (LOL!) ... and will get them in the mail early next week.

    I'm having trouble inserting the photo of the quilt I made with half square triangles. I'll keep trying. In the meantime, I followed this pattern. http://stitchyquiltstuff.blogspot.co...boy-quilt.html
    I followed the pattern pretty closely, but I've been wanting to use twice the number of charms so I can make 2 that match. Thought it would be a cute idea for siblings. I would use different colors for each quilt's neutral.

    That's such a cute quilt! I hope you can get your own photo posted. It is a long, multi-step process to put photos in our posts. Not terribly user-friendly.

    I finished my cutting. I have 6 sets and 6 twists. One of my sets is a print with different toys, many, though not all, of which you might play with at a picnic. I hope people think it qualifies. There is a baseball glove, jacks, a boat for picnics by the lake, a ball, and a tea set for tea party picnics. I also found a really awesome cherry pie print at a quilt shop on Friday.

    Ok - sign me up for 4 sets right now - if I can find more fabric may increase my total. I have ordered hotdogs, tacos/quesadilla's (I'm southwestern - what can I say!!), s'mores and I already have ants. so we should have a good picnic assortment.

    I really like this quilt - will keep it in memory - I know that I will have a lot of extra squares (hundreds!!) and will make some cuddle quilts for our quilt guild - this is a good idea for some of the smaller all over squares.

    I just thought - I have some really gross bug print - flys and ticks and things - so I will do 6 sets and hunt for one more fabric. Sorry owlvamp - I am really making you work keeping up with things! Thanks!

Size:  553.1 KBMy husband figured out my photo problem! Here is the one I made following the pattern I linked. Hers doesn't have a border but I didn't think mine was big enough without one. Hers says "boy quilt" but I made this before we knew baby's gender. Turned out my friends did have a boy, so it was a boy quilt after all. I did this one before I discovered I Spy swaps, so most of the fabrics aren't I Spy which is part of why I want to make another one. I thought this would be a good project with the small scale fabrics from the twists.
