    Cute quilt LibraryLil - I love the idea - glad to have the posting here so i can refer back to it.

    fabric.com has all of their novelty fabric 15% today (5/12) if anyone is interested in future swap needs.

    I like the idea of maybe a few themed swaps - animal kingdom, back-to-school, games etc. What do you others think?
    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.

    I agree if there's something you would like to see in our swaps please let me know and I'll see what I come up with. I was thinking doing A christmas swap in July. I was also thinking like doing jungle/ zoo theme along with school fabrics in September. I'm just thinking out loud. But I'm up for ideas.

    Ditto on the Christmas in July swap!

    I'll be mailing mine in morning. I'd intended to yesterday, but got carried away re-arranging the tables and shelves in my sewing room. Boy, am I sore today! LOL!
    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.

    Love the Christmas in July idea...and that would be another good time for a mini print twist since there are so many Christmas small scale prints. I think themes are great, but I also have fabric in my stash I'd like to use at some point.

    Oooh! And I just won a bid on ebay for the cutest fabric for the picnic swap! That will complete my sets and I'll be able to ship out when it gets here.

    I like the idea of occasional themed swaps, but overall I enjoy the variety and freedom that comes from broader swaps. I also can't get to the quilt shop that often and like to support my local shops rather than order online, so I wouldn't always be able to go get something for a specific theme. With the more generic swap, I can stock up and know I'll use them in the next few swaps.

    I have to agree... since I make my I Spys for charity mostly, I really prefer the general swaps of just great prints rather than themes. But themes can be fun every once in a while.

    We can have a regular swap and the twist can be christmas . This way those who would like christmas fabric can still have it. And those that want regular will have it. Win win !!

    Maybe change the twist so it isn't 15 different fabrics per twist? I would like to do it but don't have access to that many fabrics without ordering 1/2 yard of the 15 different fabrics - which would be too expensive to do for me.

    Perfect idea! Could the twist, though, be the same as the regular in that you would swap them? That way, rbweise (and everyone else) could buy one fabric, just like the twist, cut it into 20 pieces, and get 20 different ones back.

    I can't change Junes Twist for I already have some in. If I was to do the twist of christmas fabric the same can you all help me with your twist? Like 6 sets is the limit so that would be 120 charms. Now if each person took those 6 charms sets and separated them and made twenty piles of 6 charms in each we can do the 20 charms the same in each Baggie. For this would make it easier on me and a lot faster .

    i think I follow you. Another way to do the same thing is to:
    1) set out your six sets
    2) take one from each pile and place them on top of each other in a uniform square
    3) turn the pile to make it a diamond
    4) begin again, setting your six as a square on top the previous diamond
    5) repeat

    This way, all you have to do it pick up six at a time to swap them and we don't use crazy amounts of baggies. But if baggies are truly easier, I'm good with that, too.

    Waiting is so hard!! I'm eager to get my last fabric by mail so I can get these out to you! Should be able to mail Monday. They said Friday delivery, though I was hoping for today!

    Or, instead of having a themed swap, we could focus on a color. Like, please try to send in one green background fabric. I'm having a hard time finding reds and greens these days.

    Yes we could do this too. Like for the twist do solids, polka dots, swirls. Something in this manner. See we all have ideas.

    Sorry, I wasn't very clear in my post. I mean, I Spy fabrics with a red background or a green background.
