50 States I Spy Fabric Square Swap - WE GOT 50!

Recommended Posts

Jeannie,

 

That is the panel I am using for my backs.  I love that Alaska and Hawaii are in their respective spots, but Alaska is huge. 

 

Just a tad bit of information:

 

You can fit Texas into Alaska 2 times.  It is 1/5 the size of the lower 48.  Alaska is larger then Texas, California and Montana combined.  Impressive!

I apologize if this has already been addressed but I just wanted to be sure!  Are we to prewash fabrics before cutting into squares and mailing or not?

Thanks so much!  This  is my first online fabric swap and my first I Spy quilt and I'm super excited!

Just to clarify, are we including 50 little strips for each state, with a fun fact?   My fabrics are all cut and ready to go.  Unfortunately I am out of printer ink

I thought we were attaching a one line explanation of how our fabric represents our state to Tonilyn and she was collating into a sheet she would e-mail to us. At least that's what it says in the first post...

Thanks Dave.  I guess I didn't read carefully enough.  It's been a long week- state testing at school and I have the read aloud group.

Yes, Dave is correct.  Send me, via email, the explanation of why the print(s) represents your state(s).  I will collect all of them and mail out when the squares go out.

As I receive squares, I will line out the list on the first page of postings.  Please check it out so you will know when I receive your squares.

 

 

Thanks for getting them out!

We are waiting on 9 states.

 

If you have not already emailed me with your explanation of your choice of fabric for your state, please do so.  Several have sent them with your squares.  I don't have time to type all of them out.  Cut and paste is my wonderful friend!

 

Amazing - so far we have only 2 matching squares choices.  I will let you try to figure out the states before I mail them out.  LOL  B)

Wow, that is great...where did you find it?

I found it on Etsy.  The designer is Krista Hamrick, and I love her art.  Might keep an eye on ebay too.  This was the only place I found it, and the seller had about 2 yards left.  It really is a beautiful piece.

We are waiting on 4 people's squares to get here and 2 people to email me their descriptions.  You know who you are.  ;) Please answer your email and let's get this tied up.

Most everyone's envelope is in the mail.  If you were short on postage I sent you a separate email.  I am not being cheap but extra postage adds up when mailing 22 envelopes.

 

I would love to see what is created with the squares.  Please post pics here.

 

Thanks for participating.

My blocks came in the mail today. They are cool.  I am going to do trivia/eye spy quilts for the grandkids.
