    I could have sworn I was signed up for this swap but I guess not. Glad I didn't miss the deadline. Count me in for 15 cottons and hmmmmmm I'm gonna go look and see what I have for neutrals.

    This is the quilt I made with some of my "candy"

    Okay, I am in! Sign me up for 10 sets. This is my first time doing this so I may ask some questions. I think I have enough scraps now that I am able to participate without buying anything. I'm excited, I am going to try the starch method and used rotary cutter, I just need to pick up a new blade.

    So I am getting new carpet tomorrow in my bedroom, which means I have to clean out my closet where all my sewing, quilting, and crafting stuff is. I made a basket of all my scraps and so forth, but I have a question. Is there anyway of telling if the fabric isn't 100% cotton?

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but it you try to burn it and it melts it's NOT 100%

    If it is cotton, you'll get ashes. Poly will melt~

    SheriR: Sign me up. I am also addicted to these charms. I move recently and packed my box of 2.5" squares that I collected last year and still haven't found it and I'm starting to panic. About 7500 squares in that box. It is somewhere. But I keep cutting and swapping. Will send PM.

    Hi. I just sent a PM to join the candy swap. I signed up for 15 cotton, 5 batik and 5 neutral. I have most of them cut and ready to package. I just need a few more batiks. Can't wait to see the great assortment I get back.

    Okay, I've got 15 sets cut. Well, I had some already cut for another project, but I had lots of duplicates, so they came in handy. Will send a PM to sign up shortly. I can mail them whenever you're ready.

    Hope you get one of mine, it will have some Moda in it. Without knowing at the quilt shop I usually always pick out Moda fabric. Love it!

    I could pick out Moda fabric blind folded! It's always so soft.

    Christine, deadline for me to receive the Candy is April 15. Does that help? OR start planning now, we will have many more. Remember....at least one of us here is addicted.

    I am impressed with my effort to get my package out .. It happened today.. Usually I'm good on procrastination.. I actually read the beginning of the thread before I shipped to make sure all was right, and when I got to the p.o., I forgot to get a tracking number.. I'm glad it doesn't have major value. Actually strike that.. It has sweat/time value
    Have a happy Easter to all that are reading this.

    Tracking, I think, is automatic. Check your receipt for a number. I'll watch for it from my end and let you know as soon as I have it in my hot little hands.

    I am a week behind, I had my 3 year old granddaughter last week. So tonight I am getting stuff ready to mail, and I am frantic! I can only find 14 packets of candy for the cotton. I think how weird is that because I know I cut out 15!

    So when my daughter calls me telling me she got home, she says she loves the cute baggie of fabric I gave to Charleigh!!!! Mystery solved, I don't have the heart to take it from her! The little quilter in the making! So I am sending only 14! I hope this does not mess you up too much! I can throw another together but it won't even match the other 14? Let me know what your thoughts are!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Marybeth, that's the cutest story ever! 14 sets will be fine. Don't stress out.

    I'm laughing.. I was counting my bags before putting them in the envelope, and I had an extra.. My sister in law was helping me.. I was hoping on getting her interested in quilting.. She didn't take the bait.. I tried last week with two nieces, and that didn't work either.. I'm still all by myself, but I found a couple of friends through the board, and we have gotten together once, and should be going to a museum that has a quilting exhibit in a couple of weeks..

    I have been battling bronchitis for the last week, I won't be able to mail out until next Monday. Good thing I don't live too far from Sheri. LOL could take the longest to get to her.
