Thread: Boomerang 6 - Winter - Blocks I have made -- Don't peek if you want to be surprised

    For the Boomerang 6 - Winter group I think I'll only use a couple patterns this time. See what it's like to use the same pattern over and over with just a little variety when the fabric "speaks" to me to do something else.

    In a boomerang swap, there are groups of either 18 or 36 swappers. (I'm in a group of 36 again) You mail a F8 (11" x 18" ) of your fabric to the other members in your group. They in turn mail you a piece of their fabric. Everyone makes a 12 1/2" block to mail back to the F8 owner....you choose the block you want to make and the coordinating fabrics. Some swappers give a few guidelines to follow so all their blocks will be somewhat uniform.

    We have a thread in the swap section where you can see eveyone's blocks they have received. In order to keep them a surprise until the receiver sees them, we don't generally post our "made" blocks to that thread. Some of us though want to share our work with everyone else too.

    This is where I'll post my blocks as I make them. I'll notify the receiver on our main swap page and give them the chance to peek (I'll tell them what page their block is on in this thread :) ) if they want to see them before they arrive at their house.

    I hope you enjoy these blocks...I've learned so much by working on them. These are the first 2 of this swap...33 more to come in the next 4 months (blocks are due back to their owners by 02/01/12).

    This pattern is "Birds in the Air" off the Quiltercache website under the 12" finished block section.

    Thanks so much for checking these out. Please feel free to bookmark this thread so you can check out my progress if you'd like to.

    paintmejudy -- green leaf fabric -- for a young girls quilt so I thought "kiss a lot of frogs" on the way would be a great combo

    Working slowly it seems...

    Here's two more finished blocks that will head home on 10/21/11.

    Home they fit in well with their others. :D
