    Owlvamp...........sent you a PM.......doing 6 sets and 4 twist..................and the 4 twist all have different pairs of fabrics.......so you don't have to worry about giving two or three or all four of my twist to the same person.........

    took me long enough to get the twist done ......I got distracted by looking at all the fun fabrics I received in the last swap.........

    Can all your sets be the same fabric or does each set need to be different fabric?

    Thank you for hosting again Owl vamp. I just signed up for 6 sets.
    I was in another swap and I hate to complain, but several of the charms I received were just calico prints.
    I think frizzymama did a great job choosing designs that are recognizable to children and are "fussy cut" so the design is easy to identify. I received a flamingo with the head cut off before so I am hoping for a better experience this time.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    I must have been in the same swap. The calicoes are no go in this type of swap. Special thanks to those that fussy cut. It is a lot of work and takes more fabric. I look for prints that will fit the 5 inch square.

    I do agree with fussy cutting them. I wouldn't want a back end of nothing. But there are people out there that doesn't mind. I can tighten the rope on this and start sending some of there blocks back if enough complain about it. I however in the rules state to fussy cut. But I think where the problem lies is that when the blocks are cut the fabric is in half and just because one side comes out right the other does not. Something is always cut off. So picking fabric with the right size print is the key. When I sort all the blocks I count and recount and make sure everyone doesn't get their blocks back. I however don't always examine each block. I can only hope each one of you send in the blocks correct. I do count to make sure I have the right amount from each of you.
    So Please fussy cut your blocks. Send in what you would want to get back. Yes I've seen a lot of floral coming through in the last swap. Was going to say something but figured would wait for the next swap. There is so many wonderful fabrics out there we just need to explore and get them. I want the swap to be fun for everyone so I try not to be to hard.

    What type of squares for the disasters?

    Thanks for the extra input Owlvamp. I agree, choosing fun and appropriate scaled prints is important. I'm not a huge fan of the adult looking floral stuff, but I understand people might have different tastes and thoughts on what ”I spy” means.

    Here is the description from the rules.

    "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. "

    Just got mine in the mail. Didn't realize how close to the first of July it's getting - June just flew by! The priority envelopes seem kinda flimsy, so I used the smallest priority box. Almost the same cost and the boxes are so much sturdier, I don't know why it hasn't occurred to me to use them before.
