5" scrappy charm swap

I have seen a few group swaps around and some lovely scrappy quilts made up, they make brilliant summer picnic rugs or perfect for draping over the couch, I just love them and have been meaning to make one for quite some time. The 5" square is so versitile to, join 9 together and make a disapearing 9 patch.
Or sew into rows and make a ragged edges quilt, they make excelent baby quilts and so warm and fluffy, and can be whipped up in a weekend...LIKE!
Or how about sewing right sides together and making a perfect half square triangle that can be turned into a pinwheel. Lots of options for the 5" square but I think my fave is the scrappy patchwork quilt look.
Anywho I thought I might put the call out for interested people to join in a charm swap. This will be a very simple swap, you have 1 month to cut as many 5" squares as you like and come 1st of August I will need you to post them to me where I will mix all the squares up and return new squares to you.
Squares must be cut at 5" from100% quilters cotton, and this is a perfect oportunity to clean up your scrap bin and get rid of some uglies!!
Interested? Sign up below and I will message my address closer to the date xx

Ok, but I really hope I don't end up with a package of 'uglies' at the end of the swap. I see another values quilt in my future :)
