Please read the requirements below carefully!
What is an "I Spy" Quilt/Fabric?
An I Spy quilt is made from novelty fabrics, such as children's prints, and fabrics with motifs rather than patterns. For instance, many of the 1930's quilt fabrics featured children playing, cats, bunnies, dogs, etc. So, for this swap, you will be sending in strips that feature small-print novelties of any kind.
(Holiday themes are permitted, as long as they are small scale.)
NO FLOWER FABRICS in this swap. Flowers are permitted on fabrics where they are not the only thing shown. For instance, if you were sending in a strip with dogs on it, it would be ok if there were also flowers. Just--no strips that are ONLY flowers.
Please keep these strips to small scale. There are plenty out there, if you look hard enough!
You cut 4 strips of
different novelty fabrics, measuring 18 1/2"" x 1 1/2".
DO NOT RIP OR TEAR YOUR
STRIPS AT ALL.
You mail them here:
by November 30th.
I take each of the
strips, and cut them into 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" squares.
I will swap out the
squares so you have a generous amount to play with.
Make a Quilt from your I Spy squares in
any pattern you choose, and add it to the appropriate
The remainder of the squares are for
