Postage stamp charm swap/ Stash challenge

Why I do this, I do not know? Well, yes I do know- I love working with these 1.5 inch pieces of fabrics!
Sweet Pea at Coffee Time quilts had a blog about a postage stamp charm swap and I joined. I had to cut up 35 sets of 50 -1.5 inch charms to trade. I hope to receive 1750 different charms soon.
Here is a picture of the ones I sent out. I need about 6400 to make a true charm quilt. From my scrap bin I cut up to date 650 pieces just from my scrap bin! I found bits of fabric that I used in my first quilt 2.5 years ago. I have not started cutting from my fabric stash but I will soon.

What fun! I love the look of true charm quilts! Are you going to hand piece it?

I think I can definitely help you with some charms. After my retreat I will go through my scraps and cut some up for you :) I have lots of scraps!!

This looks really wonderful. I wish I could sift through your stack :-) Can't wait to see what you get in return, and what you do with them!
