We have 32 members participating and aprox 50 swaps... **** MEMBER SIGN-UP IS NOW CLOSED***


LuvTooQuilt is hosting…….5" I Spy charm swap,

Registration is open to the first 40 members or until 22 Oct, whichever comes first.

Each swapper will submit 40 squares of 3 (three) different Funky, child, novelty fabrics that you deem perfect for use in an I-Spy quilt..

Squares should be carefully cut from prewashed 100% cotton fabric. Keep in mind that your squares will most likely end up in a child's quilt. Select fabrics that will hold up to a lot of love, wear, tear, draggin', cuddlin', washing, and trips through the dryer. fabrics that fray easily, or that are fairly easy to see through are probably not good candidates for an I-Spy quilt.

Please be advised that squares that are not square, or those that are not the right size, will be returned unswapped.

Here’s how it works:

In your packet to me you will enclose:

3 Ziploc bags – In Each individual bag will consist of- same design - 40 count- 5" squares BUT… Each bag will have a different fabric than the other ones..

Example-
Bag 1/Fabric A: 40 squares 5"
Bag 2/Fabric B: 40 squares 5"
Bag 3/Fabric C: 40 squares 5"

*** Fabric must be washed, ironed and in ziplock bags for safe passage thru USPS

INCLUDE your screen name ON your package along with SET amounts you are doing

Example- I would like to do two sets so, written legibly with a sharpie marker or pen, my Ziplock bag will have

luvTooQuilt X2

Please remember that each stack in each set should be cut from a different fabric. Please do not send more than 3 sets***

***3 sets mean that you would send 40 from 9 different fabrics for a total of 360 charms.

Also in your package INCLUDE a return address label, an empty envelope exactly like the one you used to send, and return priority postage. Please remember that if you do not send enough return postage i will hold them until you send the difference. After 30 days, i will donate the unclaimed squares to charity. (PM me for international info)

I would like to have these in hand no later than 10/29 (so with a post mark no later than 10/23- that should give the USPS ample time to deliver them to me plus a day or two grace period.) International members need to send them to me sooner- PM for details

Please remember that any packages received after 30 Oct will be automatically returned unswapped.

I will then sort and mail out squares on Nov 1st.

Please PM me your address, board name, how many sets you're doing and aprox when you plan ship your package so I can add you to the list and send you my mailing address.

We all look forward to seeing and swapping the funkiest, oddest, cutest, child's novelty fabric you can find.. I dare you!!!!

Happy quilting everyone.

Thank you for signing up for this swap.. I'm so very exited and sooo looking forward to seeing what fabric you all find for this charm swap....

How much yardage of each print would be needed to cut the squares for that? Just want to see if I can join or not, thanks!

quiltingnonie 10-09-2010 04:15 PM

So can you clarify what I will receive in return? Will it be 3 bags of 40 squares of 3 different fabrics? Or will it be 120 squares of all be all different fabrics?

sunrise450 10-09-2010 04:20 PM

1/2 yard equals 40 4" squares.
I will send 3 sets of 40 squares, each set 40 of the same 4" fabrics. Will PM you.

5 inch squares

I recommend at least 7/8 yard - to allow for shrinkage and possible skewing of the fabrics when they dry.

Also, allow more if the design should be fussy cut

When all the squares are in (or whenever she wants to), the hostess will make 40 stacks. Each stack will get one each of the 120 fabrics that are sent in.

EC 10-09-2010 05:04 PM

I'm in, thanks for hostessing!

craftymainemom 10-09-2010 05:37 PM

I would like to do 2 sets. (that's 6 different fabrics :)) I love shopping for novelty fabrics.

rejenea 10-09-2010 05:42 PM

I would like to do three sets

Will pm you
