And I was wondering if all the squares have to be exactly 5 inches, or can they be smaller than that, as long as they are square?  I guess it's the "start" as a 5 inch square that has me wondering...

The way I understand it is that ALL the fabric used for the front of your project must start in the form of 5" squares - after that you can cut them into any shape or size to make your project, they don't have to stay as squares - I hope I'm right or else my project won't fit this challenge  Smiley

^ Yep, Homerof2 has it right! It's a charm challenge, so all squares must start as charms. You can stitch them together like that, make them into half square triangles, or whatever else you like!

This might be a stupid question, but before I start working I just want to make sure that my project wouldn't be breaking any rules  Grin Do the charm squares have to be a prominent spot in the project, or are they just a guideline for how big each piece of fabric needs to be? I have a few ideas, but it would be more like an applique quit, rather than a quilt that would display the charm squares? I don't know if any of this makes sense, but I'm just trying to make sure I wouldn't put a lot of effort forward and then have my project not make the criteria....

As long as all your fabric starts as charm squares, you can cut, sew whatever you want from them!

I'm happy the backing can be made from yardage! I have the perfect project for this swap, but it's only the front that's in charm squares! A lot of them!  Wink

Ok well I have the backing done and everything kinda ready for the front! But I have til the 31st so I don't think it should be a problem... I do have a question again ... I know it needs to be quilted.... can I quilt the back and quilt the front and then sandwhich them together and bind? or does it have to be traditionally quilted?

I hope that makes sense..... I have two different things and well the quilting from the front doesn't really go with the back so I was going to use fusible fleece attached to each side to quilt each the way I wanted and then attach them together with the binding and a few well placed hidden stitches....

Ummm I'm not sure? Does that fit the definition of quilting? (I honestly don't know) Let me check with the other quilt mod to see what she thinks.
