    I got my package today, but won't have time to look at them for a a few days. I hope they are perfect.

    As far as squares not fitting the rules, it should be stated up front that they will be returned if they don't fit the requirements. I am disappointed when the shape is off in one corner or will be hidden in the seam and can't be used. The nice thing is most of the time everyone does a good job.

    I have done several of these swaps. I just consider squares that do not fit part of the course and will put them in my scrap bin or rehome them. I figured some one miss understood with the none kids prints. Now that person has the I Spy swap blocks back they will know what is expected for the next swap. I do feel the host has all right to contact the person and ask what happened if she so choose to do so.

    I am not big on Christmas/Halloween prints, celebrate it but slightly different so will rehome them. The fussy cut Santa was very cute. I also sort by boys and girls prints. It seems I make way more boy I Spy quilts but there are way less boys kids prints available in general and even those often have pink.

    I really appreciate how many people fussy cut with this swap. Much better then I am used to. I know it is a lot of work. Thank you too all for swapping with me.

    Special thanks to our swap host owl vamp. I was very happy with the blocks.

    I am up for it as long as it is not till the end of September. It would be nice to know so I can buy fabric and be sure I can use it to swap.

    I think you need to take the time you need to care for yourself and your husband and then do the swap That will give us all time to buy some awesome fabric and have a wonderful swap next time. I am looking forward to it!!!! In fact, I just heard about a quilt shop in close to me that I had no idea was even there! Headed there Monday morning!!!

    Owlvamp -- Take a break and just take care of yourself. No swap until you are 100% back from surgery. I have plenty of squares to make a couple quilts.

    Two months will give us time to find the correct fabric used in I-Spy quilts and fussy cut as necessary.

    To answer your question I would say let's swap as before: 20 swatches per bag/6 bags max, and add a twist, but this time with true batiks. (Just my thought.)

    Take care and heal fast.

    I left on vacation the day my squares were scheduled to arrive. I'm new to this site and swapping so I was very excited to swap. I had to wait another week but finally got my held mail yesterday and am happily sorting through squares.

    I love my squares! So many cute prints I have not seen before! Yes, there were some that I would not consider eye spy material but those will go into my scrap pile and used for other projects.

    I am definitely excited to do another swap and will be on the lookout for new prints at the local stores. Or shop my stash

    Thank you Sandra for coordinating this swap. I appreciate the time you took to make this happen.

    My name is Julie and I just joined the Quilting Board.

    I am looking forward to the September swap! I will shop for fabrics this week and start cutting.

    I just had my first granddaughter this summer and I figured if I start collecting now I will have plenty of time to gather my fabric and complete an I Spy quilt. I just finished her baby quilt and I am looking forward to making another quilt for her!

    From reading the messages everyone seems very nice and helpful and I look forward to being a part of the group.

    I'm so glad I looked at this thread. I joined the board too late to join this swap, and I was looking for an i spy charm swap. I'm looking forward to the next one and will start shopping now!

    Yes I would like to see more children's fabric, liscence fabric is okay to. Just no plain ,stripes or flower fabric. These will go into children's quilts. Toys,bike, cars, food, is all great. Think what you would want in you children's I spy quilt.

    I'm doing okay and so is husband. Both get dizzy when we walk and trying to get our strength back. One day at a time.
    Thanks for asking.

    I wish we lived close by. I would make you a pot of homemade chicken and rice soup!

    I agree with your suggestions for future swaps. I have to make 9 I Spy quilts, so please keep them coming!!!

    Will the September I Spy swap include the option to do the twist if we do at least 2 of the baggies with 20 squares each? (I hope so!)

    Julie

    PS: I hope your recovery continues to go smoothly.

    I hope so too. I have 6 sets of 20 blocks and 2 twists made up. I hope the twist is the same as last time. If not I guess I have a start on the next swap. Lol

    Yes I figure I would do the same swap in September. 6 sets max 20 in each bag and have to the regular swap to qualify for the twist. It will be matching again. But this time with the twist if you used any fabric in the regular sets you can not use it in the twist. Plus it needs to be all children fabric no solids,lines,flowers, etc.

    Recovery is coming slow but getting there. So I will be writing up the requirements and submitting it for approval soon.

    I am also super excited and have fabric bagged up already!

    I hope you and your hubby are feeling better. It must be hard to have two recoveries in one house at the same time. Hopefully you have someone to take care of you both!

    Someone suggested we do a batik swap. I don't have time until a couple months. Maybe some will host one.
