I Spy a Wrap on Swap 3!

Something I’m thankful for this week: Spoonflower I Spy Swap 3 is finished! All of the participants should have their fabric in-hand now. Or under-presser-foot. Whichever.

There are a handful of picks in this swap that’ve been chosen in previous swaps. The cameras, kites and alligators, for example. I love the variety of color and subject matter that appear in the swap sets. Even though I myself have combed through thousands of prints available through Spoonflower, there are always new surprises for me in the picks.

I made a few changes to the process this time in an attempt to streamline it. For example, I asked folks to buy a spot for $1 rather than sign up via the comment section, and that helped keep things more organized. The trickiest part, as it has been for the past two swaps and for any swap as far as I can tell, is the part where people have to send their fabric in. The timeline didn’t stretch as much as the first two, so I’ll call that a “win”. There were three people who fell off of the face of the earth, but fortunately there were some last-minute heroes. The biggest happy part of the whole scenario is that these were on their way back to swappers before Thanksgiving! HOOOOOORAY! If you’d like to read more about the past swaps, you’ll find the wrap-ups here and here.

If you see a fabric here you must have, you can find the full link list here. And there are exactly five swap sets available in the shop.

Upcoming excitement: On Friday we’ll announce the BIGGEST crafterhours giveaway ever! If you’re wondering what that could be– you’ll just have to come back and find out! Or feel free to guess. I love guesses. Maybe there’s a prize if you’re right…

    I think my favorite is the mammoth print. I want to buy a yard just to make something for myself. I still haven’t figured out what to do with any of them but for now I’m happy just to look at them :) Thanks for hosting the swap for us!

    I thought this was the best of the 3 swaps! i really thought it went really smooth!! great job!!! To be honest, i was surprised when they came in the mail so quickly. I was expecting more delays, which really doesn’t bother me at all because it is so worth the wait. I already have it sorted into a girl pile and a boy pile so when baby arrives, i can get started on the quilt!!

    I can’t wait to see what the giveaway is. If it has something to do with spoonflower, i might pee my pants. Partly from excitement and partly because this baby keeps kicking me in the bladder :)

    I started my project with the swap squares today, and it is flying by! It will be a baby quilt for a coworker’s little boy. Very exciting!
