    SUMMER has some members doubling up and some making a single block. Those who are NOT doubling up will send me 12 F8s and will have 12 blocks made for them. Those who ARE doubling up will send me 19 F8s and will have 19 blocks made for them.

    Please wash, press, remove selvages, cut into F8s, bag, label with your name and any requests and then put them into a large ziplock-type envelope inside your mailing envelope with your name and address on it. Remember, you will be shipping with tracking. All fabrics must be in my hands on or before Tuesday, July 18, 2017 and I will turn around and send them out on Thursday, July 20, 2017. If all fabrics are in sooner, I'll mail sooner.

    Shipping: When you mail to me, please do so in whatever manner you wish as long as you do so with tracking. Please review shipping rules below and be sure to send me the tracking number as soon as you get it. Be sure to include $7.20 for return shipping. If the money/prepaid labels are missing, I will hold your package until I receive it. No checks or Paypal please.

    Please have fun! It’s time to play with fabric you might not normally use, show your skills, make some new friends, say hello to old ones, and generally enjoy the experience. Let’s go!

    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) Use only 100 percent quilting cotton. Please pre-wash and press your fabric. REMOVE SELVAGES before cutting into Fat Eighths, generally about 18” x 11”. Please keep off-sized pieces for your own use.
    2) When mailing your F8s to me, please make sure they are individually sealed in a small Ziploc-type bag, no hard zippers please. Label each F8 with your board name, easily visible to me, along with any instructions or color requests for your fabric. (DO NOT SPECIFY A RECIPIENT unless a fabric is being directed to a particular person.) Labels are useful to help the recipient prevent fabric mix-ups, something that’s easy to do. Please then take all the individually wrapped F8s and put them in a Ziplock-type bag large enough to accommodate them all onto which you have written your name and address. When you send your completed blocks back to me, please seal and label your completed blocks with the owner’s name AND your name easily visible to me in a similar manner as you did the F8s.
    3) Please mail your F8s to arrive by Tuesday, July 18, 2017. The sooner everyone gets them to me, the sooner they go out! Be sure to send me the tracking number as soon as you ship.
    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 19 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 MUST be 12 1/2” unfinished. Blocks may be regularly pieced, paper-pieced, appliquéd, whatever the block maker decides to do. It is up to each individual. Please do not request specific blocks as the idea is to let everyone, of every skill level, join in and show their talents.
    9) Most importantly, HAVE FUN!

    IMPORTANT SHIPPING DETAILS
    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 (unless other arrangements have been made) at the rate in force at the time of shipping. Today that cost is $7.20. Please send a pre-paid envelope or label or you may send me $7.20 in well-concealed cash and I will supply the envelope. Envelopes stamped with “regular” postage stamps will no longer be picked up by my carrier but must be taken in person to the post office. This will delay shipping until I can get to the post office so please no “regular” stamps. I do not accept PayPal or checks.

    Keep in mind the following:
    You MUST be in good standing with previous swaps. Anyone with a poor track record of fulfilling swap commitments will not be permitted to join. If you sign-up and do not fulfill your commitment, negative feedback will be given.

    All skill levels are welcome but you MUST be able to sew a 12 ½ inch, basic, well-constructed block. The block doesn’t have to be detailed but it must not be falling apart. All seams should be ¼ inch with at least 12 stitches per inch. Blocks should not leave your hands until you know you have made every effort to get them as close to the 12 ½ inch size as you can reasonably get. We all respect new quilter’s need to learn and that will be taken into account. If you cannot consistently construct a 12 ½ inch block, this is not the swap for you. Also, this is important: Please allow yourself enough time to complete your full set of blocks. In other words, don’t leave them to the last week! The results can be hit-or-miss. And please be sure to clean up the blocks by trimming your threads and cutting dog ears.

    PLEASE pre-wash your 100 percent cotton quilting fabrics without any fragrance residue. Please note that that some swappers may be smokers or have pets. If pets or smoke is a problem for you, this isn’t the swap for you.

    NO public complaints or criticisms for any reason are permitted. ALL complaints must be addressed by Private Message (PM) or email to me at [email protected]. NO EXCEPTIONS!

    Hello Summer Boomers! We're up and running. Please post here. I've picked up all F8 pix from the sign-up thread so no need to repeat adding them here unless you'd like to. They're in the Gallery already. Also, emails have been sent. Please read and hit "reply" so I know we're all on the same page. Thanks!

    This is how I understand it Janice may set us both straight here in a minute! lol In order to allow everyone who wants to to double she divides the extra (doubled) blocks amongst the doublers. So you will get 19 f8's to make blocks with, but you won't get 2 f8's from each "doubler". So each doubler in the group will do 2 blocks for most of the doublers, but no one will get the exact same doublers.

    Joanelizbay and everyone else, the max number of people per group is 20 which means 19 F8s. Only once have I exceeded that by one block to accommodate all who wanted to double. It was a nuisance, changing fabric needs right before starting and getting the ok from everyone. It was my idea and I regretted it immediately. This round, it's working out well so that those who want more blocks can get 19, not just 12. Not everyone wants to make a lot of blocks in a couple of months so group size remains at 20, which is 19 blocks.

    I suppose it shouldn't be called "doubling up". It was a much better name when the group didn't have so many who wanted to do it so that we exceeded the max of 19.

    I agree Janice's method of the multiples is genius! It's not exactly doubling. Maybe we could call it "Nineteening".

    Is it okay if I lurk here? I am not quite sure what you all are doing but I am finding it intriguing. I am new at the whole quilting game, so I am unfamiliar with how these swaps work.

    Welcome, lurkers are always welcome. I lurked on the first boom before I participated in the the next ones. This swap is a little different then others, it is my favorite swap though.

    Hi, tscweaves. You can lurk and also ask questions and comment. I guarantee if you hang in with us through the Boom, you'll be hooked and want to sign right up for next time.

    Sewbiz- You just sent me down a rabbit hole! That's a new-to-me site and I love it! I already see several patterns I'm sure going to make for myself now to make sure they size right for me. Some new blocks for me this go-round! This gives me something to do until our fabric gets back to us. Thanks for sharing with us!

    Everyone should have received an email from me. Please hit reply so I know you have it and presumably have read it. Btw, if you are in both groups, you only need to reply once. Thank you!

    I hope you got my reply to your email Janice. I have read it.

    My pkg goes out on Monday!

    Joan, what I do with block patterns is save them to my pinterest board called "Blocks I Love". Then I have them all there for easy access. I have a laptop, so it's easy to take it to my cutting table and work right off the computer. Printer ink is so expensive!

    Between Quilter's Cache, Jinny Beyer's site, and now this patchwork square site, I think I have plenty of choices!

    Thanks for the site Sewbiz, looks like lots of fun eye candy ahead. Lots of times I print out the blocks I'm interested in also. Internet can be spotty for us.Dh and I rode our jet ski's today for the first time this summer, it has been to cold and windy before this. Love the wind in my face. Enjoy skimming across the water at 50 mph but motorcycle's scare me to death.

    Bootsy, I think that's because there is only 1 page in this thread so far. The numbers 1-23 is referring to the number of replies on just this page.
