    Immemother - I remember seeing that one on the original boom thread before we were broken into groups. So glad I get to play with that one!!!

    Elsabrat - I saw that Diamonds are way ahead of us, some folks have received 3 or 4 F8 and made blocks and posted them already!! Whew! As for being the slowest - that award might go to me cause I take a long time just to pick colors and blocks. I'll let each fabric speak to me and tell me what block it wants to be when it grows up.

    NYGal - Another color that would unify them all is GOLD. Will be fun to work with those!

    Will my mailman bring me anything to play with today? Let's hope!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    In the last couple booms I did, each block would take a few hours just to sew as I was trying out new paper piecing patterns...don't know what I'll do this time. I was lucky to do a block every 3 days with the rest of "life".

    Oh My!! April - I have a rainbow of colors and looking forward to doing wild things with your FQ.
    Jacqie - I have a storehouse of blues. Seems, looking at my stash, that is my main color!!
    nygal - never worked with asian fabric before - so will enjoy the stretch.
    Not sure about reds - there are just way too many varieties and will they all come together?? I am a bit color blind - so always worry about what really goes and what clashes!!
    My squishes went out first thing Monday morning. The Postlady marked them special that they shouldn't go through the machine and they ended up at .65 which I was happy about. She kept asking what were in them .... and if they needed insurance....i told her that it was not valuable going out as a FQ but priceless when it goes out as a block! she didn't understand.
    Work three very stressful days (TWTh)and no sewing those days. hoping by Friday I will be able to start to play. I put my other projects away except for a set of placemats which don't take much brain power!! So looking forward to play with you all!!

    Oh - immemother - just noticed I got to play with your beautiful fabric. I love love love it.
    Lets just hope my measuring skills improve cause lately I am not coming up with 12.5" blocks. My august block partner got two - on that was 12.5 and the other was 13 that couldn't be sewed down to a 12" block! I do not like scant 1/4". It doesn't make sense. It doesn't make a sturdy quilt. but i will keep attempting!!

    NYGal I think you're going to end up with alot of shades of red that in the end just won't match. On my swatches I stated no red, don't care what other colors, there's just a few to pick from that will go with mine. When I put it together my setting fabric is in the same fabric line and has the red in it. That way it's all 1 shade and I won't have to fight it. If it were me, I'd say no red and add that yourself so it's all 1 shade and unifies your quilt. My opinion only. Keep measuring travelinggramma, it's really so much easier for the receiver if those blocks measure 12 1/2 X 12 1/2". Better too big than too small. I had about 3 from the last boom that I just could not use because they were 11 3/4 to 12" and the way the block was you couldn't "add a border". Think maybe later on they'll end up as throw pillows. Haven't gone to the post office yet, hope there's some little pkgs. in there. All should be getting my soon, they were mailed Monday.

    I have to agree with the opinions already voiced NYGal. Red varies greatly and you may end up with something that hugely contrasts versus comes together. I would say send your fabric and ask for no red but anything else that goes and then sash and set with a red you buy. It is amazing how this ends up because usually the blocks all pull together in the end quite nicely
    It is okay to not be at the head of the pack Remember slow and steady wins the race.
