All the fabric piles were carefully laid out to prepare for swapping.
This is when it really pays to have extra tables in the house.

It also pays to have friends that love quilting:)
After several hours of swapping
all the piles were swapped and ready to be shipped out.

And now to annouce our winners!
 The Cutest Fabric Award goes to Cindy!

Cindy entered this adorable Retro Car fabric
and will receive a Barnyard Buddies charm pack by Amy Bradley!
Congratulations Cindy and thank you everyone for taking the time to vote.

And now for the drawing of the kitty!

All participants who submitted their fabrics with a postmark of April 15th
or earlier qualified for the drawing of 120 additional 5 inch I Spy squares.
                           A list was formed and the winner chosen using Random Number Generator,
    and the winner is
  Sharon of Camp Gramma!
Congratulations Sharon!
We will expect to see some awesome quilts coming from your neck of the woods:)

     Sent and Received
The final part of the swap is a return trip to the post office, and here is the update.
               All I Spy packages within the USA (except for New York) were mailed Saturday, May 7th.
     All I Spy packages to Canada and the New York package were mailed Monday, May 9th.
Would all swappers kindly reply to this post or by e-mail when your fabrics arrive?

Also, as you begin making projects with your squares
 please feel free to post your photos on the group flickr site
so we can all stay connected in our I Spy journey.

Thank you everyone for an awesome swap!

May you always Sew in Peace:)
