    I've saved the pattern for that out of the American Patchwork and quilting. Maybe sometime we should have a swap for those, or have it as a twist - do sets of 5 squares, with 4 sets in a twist for the usual 20 squares.

    Someone posted this one today. http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...k-t220202.html. I was just trying to figure out how to swap sets of five lol. My big problem now is getting the pattern. Which issue is it in? Infact. Thanks for posting the entire magazine name. I had no idea what APQ ment in some of the posts. ....see I really am a quilting newbie!

    When I received this issue I immediately started keeping little stacks of 5 squares...I started sewing 3 of them together and pinning the other 2 with the sewn 3.... I think it would be a great if we could swap more than 5 sets.

    I had to go through some squares today that I've had. I'm thinking on how to mingle a five square swap with our candy. Let me think on it. I wonder how many of us would be interested?

    AND I did receive our last candy package SOOOOO you know what that means... Swapping tomorrow!!!!

    I saw the quilt, and was thinking of doing it, but don't think I need the pattern.. I think it is doable to swap the five pieces. We could pin the five together, and swap them out in packs of five.. How many packs of five can we get in a flat rate envelope?

    Djmat posted this quilt on Mariposa's 1.5" thread, post 112. She used 2" stamps and it's super cute. I love her state border. The picture here is a screen shot from my iPhone lol. I'm glad THAT worked!

    I can fit 15 sets of 50 plus 10 twists in a padded priority envelope. 15 sets of 5 would certainly fit in one, possibly more. I will experiment. So far I've seen four of us interested.

    Edit expired while I was rethinking my math. Here's what I should have posted. (It's early I hope it's right.)

    I can fit 15 sets of 50 plus 10 twists in a padded priority envelope. That's 190 sets of 5... IF we,say, traded 10-12 sets of five (50-60 total candy stamps).... I think 15 swap sets would fit. 100 candies fit in a 5.5x8.5 envelope if we traded person to person. So far I've seen four of us interested.

    It appears there would be good interest in a Charming Swap. Stay tuned while we get approval and fine tune the details.

    I jus tmade on of these because of this thread. I needed a quick quilt for a friend with cancer. I thought the "pluses" would bring good vibes and healing thoughts so that's why I used it. I haven't gotten a picture yet but when I do, I'll post it. It's for a 27 year old guy. I used yellow, orange, grey and white.

    LET THE SWAPPING BEGIN!!!

    I know you're shocked. I appologize for my tardiness. April was so full and lovely. Also, I think my swap is my OCD area. I had to have everything in its proper place. I'm there and.....swapping!

    Love you all!!
