I was wondering if anyone else would be interested in another round of the Fussy-cut Fabric Square Swap.  Typically this is linked to making I-Spy Quilts but could be used for other projects as well. 

We can set an amount of fabric to swap in equivalent squares.  I would be willing to try my hand at organizing, but to be honest with a young, pukey baby, I might be a bit scattered so if someone else is willing that might be better.

The previous galleries can be found here:Round 1 and Round 2.

So if anyone is interested how much fabric would you like to swap and when would be convenient for this to occur.

This sounds like a simple, easy and cheap swap to do. Have you see that there is currently a fat Quarter swap with signups open? I understand that squares would potentially be much smaller than fat quarters.

I' be interested in joining. I think it would be fun to send a few squares to a few people and do groups of 4 or 5. What size square were yuou thinking of? would hte square just be a single fabric or several pieces stitched together?

Hi guys, I've run these swaps in the past and TBH, there wasn't much interest in either round, both were fairly small swaps. We swapped the equivilent of 2 sq feet of fabric. I was after 2.5" squares, but most people were after larger 4" ish squared. I'd be more than happy to do personal swap with anyone interested as I have a HUGE collection of fabrics that I could swap, and do still need more squares. But I think I'd probably give it a miss organising another official round at this stage. Please feel free if you want to take up the fussy cut square swap and run a round 3.

Crafty Butterfly--the squares would be single fabric and between 1" and 4" or so. 

Thanks for the input nilmerg.  I won't hold my breath for a big response then, and consider the personal swap route.
