    I Spy Swap Dead line to join is June 1st, 2013

    If you would like to be part of the I Spy Charm Swap, here are the guidelines. Please read carefully:

    1.please pm me telling me that you want to enter the swap. In the pm please tell me how many sets you want to do,name and address along with board name. I will then send you a pm giving you my mailing address.


    2. We will be swapping sets of 20 charm squares, each 5 inch square. You may send more than one set of 20 charms, up to 6 sets. Each set that you send to me CAN be cut from the same fabric (or 20 different fabrics) . You should be able to cut 20 five inch squares from around 1/2 yard of fabric depending on the design spacing. If you send more than one set, please use a different fabric for each set. I will divide up the charms randomly and return back to you 20 different charms per set. At least that is the goal, and I will try hard to do that! (If you send several sets, please realize that you might get duplicate charms in return.)


    3. Please send 100 percent cotton only. Prewash or not prewash is except able . Squares should be carefully rotary cut from 100% cotton fabric. Keep in mind that your squares could end up in a child's quilt. Select fabrics that will hold up to a lot of love, wear, tears, draggin', cuddlin', washing, and trips through the dryer. Fabrics that fray easily, or are fairly easy to see through are not good candidates for this swap.

    Please be advised that fabrics that are not square, squares too wonky or too off grain, squares that are shedding, squares that contain selvages, or those that are not 5" square will be returned unswapped. Be accurate in cutting the 5 inch squares. The novelty design should be good size, not tiny...it needs to be easily recognizable from a distance.Try to have the character centered on the charm as much as possible.

    Be creative in your shopping...it would be great to not have too many sending me the same fabrics!

    4. Place each set of 20 charms in a zip lock sandwich size baggie. INCLUDE your name, address, and QB name on a piece of paper and put it inside baggies. please buy postage or concealed cash put in your envelopes.You just need to give me the correct postage. If postage is not included i will have to wait to send your charms back until you send the correct postage. I will provide flat rate envelopes they cost $5.95 now. Postage went up.
    ****Outside the US needs to add more postage for it will cost more. I'm sure when you send it you will know what to send. Please send correct amount for I will not ship until correct amount is received.****


    5. The last day for me to receive the charms is June 1st, 2013 I will post when I receive your charms. If you are sending them from outside the US, please keep this in mind as it sometimes takes weeks for packages to arrive. I will divide up the charms During the week and back to you in a week June 8th, 2013 Anything received after that will be returned to you.

    Letís have tons of fun,and of course you have to follow all the basic rules, found here.

    Are there any restrictions to the I Spy fabrics or are you looking for anything that can be identified easily by children?

    No restrictions this time. But please realize that I'm sure most everyone uses the charms in children quilts.

    Well, you ladies are so lucky! Our Joanns store is moving to the opposite side of the expressway to a bigger location and they are liquidating inventory. I got some of the most adorable kids I-Spy fabrics. I don't have a big stash so I have to buy what I send but it was all either 50% or 75% off. I'm making two extra sets for myself! Will post a pic when I get them cut... Lucky you!

    I am a beginner quilter, been sewing for over 25 years.

    I do not have a lot of experience cutting, although I do have a rotary cutter, mat 6X24 ruler, plus a few smaller rulers.

    I cannot be certain I can cut an exact 5 inch square 20 times. If I cut extra large (5.5 inch) squares would that be acceptable? Or does it just create too much work for the recipients?

    I am interested in joining. I have youngsters in the extended family that I would love to make a I Spy quilt for them.

    I can of course wait a year and join a swap when my cutting is more accurate.
    Attending University. I will graduate a year after my son and year before my daughter.

    This blog post was extremely helpful to me when I first began quilting! Maybe it could be useful to you too? http://www.diaryofaquilter.com/2010/...ng-fabric.html
