    That is not necessary - optional if you want to. But Ii can make the 14 work.
    One day, when I am frayed and strained and drizzle at the end, please someone cut a square and put me in a quilt that I might keep a child comforted.

    I put an advertisement for this swap in the Secret Pal swap. Hopefully we can get a few more.

    I searched what I have available and found that I can do 8 bags. I'm not sure if any of the prints have been swapped before. Hope that's okay.

    I'm not the hostess of this swap. However, I think you can end up with duplicates no matter whether you've swapped them before. Generally speaking, I buy at least a yard of any I spy fabric as that is the minimum cut at lots of places, both online and at warehouse type places. (It also takes a yard to participate in an ABC swap.) So, I swap the same fabric again all the time. (See reply #11 on this thread.)

    I think you are more likely to get duplicates because several different swappers recently bought their fabrics from JoAnns and Hobby Lobby than older fabrics that have been swapped before.

    JMHO, Rena may have a different take on it.

    Pinkfllowers - sure that would work.
    We have some new participants and some who welcome duplicates, so send them if you want to.

    As Bkay said, many places have 1 yd min in purchases, so they need to be used.

    Okay, that's good. I don't mind duplicates. In fact, when I cut out my own I spy squares, I pair them up for matching game quilts or placemats. Hey, would that be an idea for a swap? Instead of 10 unique squares per baggie, maybe 5 sets of doubles?

    Quiltindragon, glad to see you. Will add you to my list.

    Mmonohon your squishy arrived yesterday.

    Saw this cute idea in a FB group - reminded me of Moonrises bags, but using a different medium.

    Hey guys, we are going to Nashville on Wednesday - our daughter defends her thesis at Vanderbilt on Thursday. We are staying through the weekend because her daddy-do list has grown. She has to be at UCLA by the first of April, so she has a lot to do in a short time. The PO will be holding our mail, but if you have not mailed yet. you are welcome to hold off until next week.

    I will still check-in here while gone, Thursday may be out! There is a party later that day, so not sure how the day will unfold. Plan to get some shopping in while I am there. There is an amazing store with approx 16,000 bolts of fabric - but it is stacked everywhere! However, the owner knows if she carries a particular line, and approx where it is. There are 4 or 5 aisles of novelty fabric, so I love going there and stocking up.

    Here is an updated list of participants:

    An idea was thrown out about doing a matching set swap - would y'all pm me indicating a yes or no on doing a swap like that and how many sets you would like to put in a baggy - 5 fabrics in pairs or what.

    I'm going to look, but I don't think I'll be able to have enough cut to meet the deadline (I'm usually far ahead for this swap, but dropped the ball this round). So, if I can't get it done this time, I'll be back for the next swap.
    If your dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough!

    We made it home from a great week - it is so wonderful to see one's child in her "element". She is a science nerd through and through. She will because good professor one day - she can explain complicated topics in ways I can understand.

    Hope I got addresses to all who needed it. Sleepy Hollow, if you can get them wecwould love to have you, but if not will see you next time.

    Thank you for your patience while we were away, I came down with my husband's cold, so spent much of today in bed before we decided to drive in. I will pick up our mailing Monday.

    Rbwiese, is it too late for me to mail? I've worked 20-something days in a row. I have them cut, just not bagged. Let me know and I can get them in the mail, otherwise I'll save till next time.

    I'm in Texas. I mailed on Tuesday. The post office said Rena would get it on Thursday. She's in the middle of the country, so I would guess that if you mailed it Monday, she would get it by the due date.

    Great, thanks. I will get everything packed up tomorrow afternoon while my boss is in-flight and get it to the post office.

    I started cleaning out my sewing area and came across a box with about 20 different i-spy swap/worthy fabrics. So much for not having any to play with this swap! Next time, I'm in for sure!!
