Ok, Charm Squares it is. Listen carefully! 
 
I think charm squares need a theme, if it's too random it won't work, but we also want variety so....I propose three colour schemes, pink, blue, and green.
 
1) Check if your name is on the list, and post a reply or message me if you want to join in
2) Let me know your preferred colour scheme. Depending on how many people want to join in, you may end up with your second or third choice, so please reply asap with your first, second and third choices.
 
Please complete step 1) and 2) by Monday 16th Feb!
 
WAIT for me to find out it everyone wants pink or if this will work out OK!
If it's OK then....
 
3) Find/buy enough fabric to cut 15 pink 5" squares, 15 green 5" squares and 15 blue 5" squares.Prewash your fabric if it's big enough before you cut it. Don't try to wash any pre-cut squares.
4) Send them to me! When I've received everyone's I'll repackage them so that everyone gets 45 squares back of either pink, blue or green.
5) Make something with your squares - bags, toys, wall hangings, whatever you like!
6) Show us some photos and tell everyone how you're getting on.
 
 
Clear as mud?
Shout if you need more explanation.

Caz  - yes the fabrics can be patterned, or whatever you like, but I should be able to tell whether it is destined for a green blue or pink set!
 
Thanks Ros - hurray a Blue!

I will need your address again, my inbox does not save messages as before, is this just me? or is this the way it now works?
