    I love your quilt, Sheri! What a great use of the mini-charms with blacks and whites. Genius.

    I saw this quilt the other day. I loved it then and I'm still in love. I wonder if she used a FQ bundle. The colors blend nicely and I really like that bit of red(?) scattered around. I wouldn't have enough in my scrap bin to make a top that coordinated.

    Well! I just enlarge that photo and it is not a coordinated bundle but scraps. It is beautiful.

    I just PM for this swap. I can't start cutting until the last week in April, but I should be able to cut lots after that week. I'm so excited. I'm looking for patterns now. Next year is candy scrappy quilt making time. Looking forward to seeing everyone's squares and finished projects.

    Someone just gave me a pattern out of the "The Quilt Life" February 2014 magazine and it is a perfect scrap quilt pattern--except the squares are 2" square so I will have to cut my "candy" to 2" square. But I love the pattern. The pattern is called "My Journal Quilt" so you can check that out if you can find that magazine or I can mail you a color copy if you would like.

    The link to the pdf. pattern is on this page.
    It's beautiful-- just a scrappy Irish Chain, really. I think it's what they call a double Irish chain... I love it!

    I have my 15 cotton sets all cut (as of today-- whew!) and only need to cut my batik twist sets. Lots of cutting, but worth it!

    That's a fun quilt! I bet you can make it with 2.5" squares. I can't imagine cutting them down to 2"!!

    Yeowch. That's a lot of work. I would make it with your 2 1/2 inch squares. You'll just have to adjust the measurement of the white parts in the middle, is all. The great part about getting all these squares is that they''re already cut and that's the part that takes the longest!

    It's a Double Irish Chain, so you could probably find a pattern for it that uses 2 1/2 inch squares. Then, if you want to use the same quilting pattern that was in the magazine, you just copy it on a copy machine and enlarge it until it fits the square you're going to put it in.

    Good luck! It's always been one of my favorite patterns.

    I was thinking, too, that I could resize the "Plain" block pieces and use 2 1/2" squares. Would be easier.

    Hi - New swapped here. Just wondering if "Flag Day" has anything to do with the colors our charms have to be? For example do the charms in this swap need to be patriotic and/or shades of red-white-blue?

    Your charms can be any cotton. I just picked Flag Day as my date to return to you.
