Default Boom 15 "Beignet" 2 month group

Here's the info you need for the Beignet group.

Everyone in this group is a veteran Boomer so you know the way this works. This round only, each of you will be making 2 blocks per person so you will need to prepare TWELVE f8's for your co-members and if you are making blocks for yourself, you'll need 14.

Important Dates
F8s are due IN MY HANDS on Thursday, June 18, 2015
I ship to you on Monday, June 22, 2015
2 month group blocks due IN MY HANDS ON Saturday, August 22, 2015

Rules/Guidelines:
Please make sure to also refer to the basic policies that apply to all swaps through the board: RULES FOR SWAPS AND SIMILAR ACTIVITIES - Updated 8 December 2010.
Fabric, Completed Block and Package Preparation:
1) Please pre-wash your Fat Eighth (F8) fabric before cutting into Fat Eighths by de-selvaging, pre-washing and pressing. Cut your fabric into Fat Eighths, generally about 18” x 11”. Mail them to me.
2) When mailing your F8s to me for distribution, please make sure they are individually sealed in a Ziploc-type bag. Label each F8 with your board name along with any instructions or color requests. (DO NOT SPECIFY A RECIPIENT unless a fabric is being directed to a particular person. Doing so slows my sorting process immensely.) Labels are useful to help the recipient prevent fabric mix-ups, something that’s easy to do. When you send your completed blocks back to me, please seal and label your completed blocks with the owner’s name AND your name in a similar manner as you did the F8s. (Your name is important so that the owner knows who made what block.)
3) Please mail your F8s to me so they are in my hands on the due date.
4) Carefully handle all fabric received and completed blocks, placing them somewhere safe until mailing time comes.
5) To help keep track of the fabrics and blocks made, I will establish an online Fabric Gallery.
6) You are REQUIRED to keep in touch with your group by posting to the dedicated Boom 15 thread at least every 2 weeks. This is a requirement. If you don’t wish to keep in touch, this is not the swap for you.
7) All blocks must be completed within the time frame for the group and mailed to me with a tracking number.
8) All blocks should be 12 1/2” unfinished. They may be regularly pieced, paper-pieced, appliquéd, whatever the block maker decides to do. Again, the feeling is to get a true friendship quilt out of this. Please do not request specific blocks as the idea is to let everyone, of every skill level, join in and try new things and grow. Before mailing, be sure to clean up the blocks by trimming your threads and cutting the dog ears.
9) Most importantly, HAVE FUN!

Shipping Information
You must supply me with tracking numbers on all parcels sent to me and I will do likewise when I mail to you. All shipping costs are your responsibility. You may ship to me in whatever tracked package you like, however I will ONLY ship to you in USPS Padded Priority Envelopes at a cost is $6.10. You may supply me with a pre-paid or pre-stamped USPS Padded Priority Envelope (available for free at USPS.com) or send me $6.10 in well-concealed cash and I will supply the envelope, whatever is easier for you.

Keep the following in mind:
You MUST be in good standing with previous swaps. ANYONE with a poor track record of fulfilling your swap commitments will not be permitted to join. Once names are published on the Boom 15 thread, I will likely be told if there have been previous problems and you may be dropped at my discretion. If you sign-up here and do not fulfill your commitment, negative feedback will be given.
All skill levels are welcome but you must be able to sew a well-constructed block. It need not be fancy or detailed but it must not be falling apart. I respect new quilter’s need to learn and that will be taken into account.
PLEASE pre-wash fabrics without any fragrance residue. Please note that that some swappers may be smokers or have pets. If either pets or smoking is a serious problem for you, you may find this isn’t the swap for you.
NO public complaints or criticisms of other swappers, items received or other type for any reason are permitted. ALL complaints must be addressed by Private Message (PM) or email to me at [email protected]. NO EXCEPTIONS!

This group is getting the assorted floral fabrics for a girls quilt. Pinks and purples (as much as the color pallet pains me girls can be so predictable!!!!!) Flowers and butterflies are the inspiration, be as creative as you would like. If you use whites please keep them white not ecru.

Good afternoon sweet Beignets! I'm working on the gallery today. It's URL will be the same as last time. It's currently offline but will put it up when I've got your pix in place.

Gallery: Boomerangswaps.weebly.com

Enjoy your weekend!

The Gallery is up! I've posted most of the pix I found. There were one or two where people didn't seem sure the fabric they posted was the one they'd use so I left those off. You will find the gallery here: boomerangswaps.weebly.com. If you discover any mistakes or omissions, please let me know by email. Mistakes I'll try to fix right away, omissions may take a bit longer.

I see that several people have already begun preparing and shipping their F8s. Please make sure you've included your fabric REQUESTS in with each individual F8s and that each baggie is marked with your name. Unless you are directing a particular fabric to a specific individual, please don't label them with each member's name. It slowwwwsss me down when I start my sort. Don't forget to send your F8s to me under tracking and send me that tracking number when you get it. (I like to be aware your package is coming so if it doesn't turn up, I can go looking for it. This happened a couple rounds ago, the package was mis-delivered.) Your return postage should also be included in the package. It's easier for me if you send either $6.10 in cash or a pre-paid USPS priority envelope. (They are available at USPS.com in batches of 3 I believe.) If you use stamps, please send them in a small envelope and use large denomination stamps if possible, PLEASE not 13 first class stamps - they hate that at my post office!

That's about all I can think of now! Thanks for your attention!
