    Boom9-Pacific -- Blocks I've made--check back often :)

    This will be a slow thread most likely as I make the blocks a few each week.

    I joined the large Boomerang 9 Pacific group so I have 36 blocks to make in the next 4 months. They have to be a 12.5 x 12.5 (unfinished) block using a fat eighth mailed to me from 36 different people.

    In turn, I mailed them a fat eighth that they will make a block for me and mail it back. Here's the fabric I mailed out for them to use. I'm going to make a surprise quilt for my Dad that lives with us. He is 82 and loves to help me by doing all the seam ironing and critique. He enjoys red so much that I couldn't resist. He loves all the blocks that come in and will be so surprised to find out they are made with him in mind.

    Blocks will be added to the thread as I continue to make them.

    Here's my first block I'm mailing back on Wednesday.

    roseirish48 - sent the fun turquoise background with "links" of bright colors that I matched with the funky flowers.

    Hope they like these as Dad put his seal of approval on them before they were packed up.

    Here's the "main" link to the thread where everyone is posting all the blocks they have received. You can browse through them if you wish to have a visual happy time. It might make you want to join the next boomerang that will come around in about 5 months.

    You're doing a great job! I'm sure your Dad will love the quilt you make with your fabric's blocks they send to you.
