HI all, some ole' Boom swapping friends and some new boomers!!
Excited for another round of swapping!! This is my third boomerang swap--these swaps are so fun!!:o (I still have "several" boom swap quilts to make....yes, I am behind in making my quilts from boom swaps! Don't know where the time goes!?!?!) Even though I haven't finished sewing the blocks together from my previous boom swaps I didn't want to miss this one! Call me crazy, or just your "average" quilter!!!
My plans are still to make charity quilts from the blocks I have received and will receive. My goal is to finish many of these charity quilts by the end of the year---I do need to get busy! Other projects have just gotten in my way. Imagine that!?!?!:D
I'm with you Cuppy!! I will be sending patriotic fabric, too. (I'm sticking to Reds Whites and Blues) Quilts made from Boom 8 blocks I plan to donate to Quilts of Valor! Have to cut my fabric then will mail them out to you all!!

I mailed all my f8s today. Yeah!!!!!!
Hello all, I am also in this group. My stuff is being packaged up and mailed by Wednesday, cross my fingers that I will get to the post office. I am excited about the swap. The kids all start back to school on next Monday, yes!, so then I will have a lot of time on my hands to get these done as quick as possible without neglecting housework (although with the kids at school, the house shouldn't get so messy anymore right?). I am excited about the two patriotic quilts mentioned. I did a patriotic quilt this summer using the simple friendship star, blue and red stars with a white background, all the fabrics were different so I have a lot of fabric that will go with your themes.
My fabric is a simple dot pattern in turqouise green on a cream background. I added a note asking that you all please just used the colors in the fabric (turquoise green or cream) or light pink and chocolate brown fabrics to go along with my fabric. I like traditional quilt blocks usually, but with this fabric choice the dots scream out modern or wonky squares would fit my quilt vision. With that said, I am challenging you all to see how modern or wonky you can go, circles? anyone good with circles? I found a chocolate brown fabric with pink spots that I was going to make a block to go with my boomerang blocks and I was going to try few circle patterns maybe a drunkards path block/circle in square block or free floating applique circles like this: http://www.purlbee.com/storage/liber...=1298598903740
Just a few ideas...I would love to hear all of your ideas for your quilts too.
Ok ladies i mailed out all my f8 today!!!! Watch your mail boxes...
Christina/QuilterMommy I love getting important tips from the fabric owner. Which colors to use or not use, but then I usually let the fabric tell me what to do! I know that sounds crazy but it usually works out pretty good.
I am not very good working on a curve, but I will do the best I can with your fabric. I received two F8's this morning from the Diamond group.
Having fun with Fabric today.
I received my first squishie today from Marybeth (this is our 3rd boom swap together!!). Now to hunt for the perfect coordinating fabrics for it and the perfect block pattern. Let the creative process begin!!!!:o
MaryBeth I got your teacher apple fabric today....I'm thinking red school house with a abc 123 boarder?
I got all my f8's mailed today. Also received f8 from goldendog55.
My f9s have all been sent now!
