    ALL F8s due to me Monday, June 18, 2018
    I ship to you no later than Friday, June 22, 2018

    ALL blocks due to me Saturday, September 22, 2018
    I mail ALL blocks no later than Saturday, September 29, 2018

    Gallery: Boomerangswaps.weebly.com


    Welcome to Boom 21, Dunes! This round, everyone will be making blocks due September 22, 2018. Details follow below but anyone who has participated in a recent Boom knows the basics.

    Everyone in this group please send me 19 F8s. Please wash your yardage, press, remove selvages, cut into F8s (approx. 18x11, no smaller than 18x10), bag in a quart-sized or smaller baggie, 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 Monday, June 18, 2018 and I will turn around and send them out no later than Friday, June 22, 2018. If all fabrics are in sooner, I'll mail sooner.

    Please note that board participation is an essential ingredient in making this swap successful. So much information about the swap is found there, much more than I can possibly write in this sign-up post. Please understand it is your responsibility to read all posts and post at least weekly. Subscribing to your group’s thread is helpful. If something comes up and you cannot post, please have somebody email me. Absolutely no disappearing please!

    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 $7.25 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 without any fragrance residue. Remove selvages before cutting into Fat Eighths, generally about 18” x 11” but no smaller than 18”x 10”, no exceptions! Please keep off-sized pieces for your own use. If you send me smaller pieces, I will return them to you at your expense.
    2) When mailing your F8s to me, please make sure they are individually sealed in a quart-sized or smaller ziplock-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 Monday, June 18, 2018. 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 21 threads at least every week. 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, select their own blocks to showcase their talents and your fabric.
    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 mailing 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 $7.25 but it may change at any time. Please send a pre-paid envelope or label or you may send me $7.25 in well-concealed cash and I will supply the envelope. Envelopes with “regular” postage stamps will no longer be picked up by my carrier but must be taken in person to the post office so please don’t send them. Please note: There is no guarantee all blocks will fit in a single padded envelope if you are in both groups. I will contact you to discuss options if that happens.

    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 or a scant ¼ with at least 12 stitches per inch. All fabric should be cut on the straight of grain to avoid wonkiness and fraying whenever possible. Blocks should not leave your hands until you know you have made every reasonable effort to get them as close to the 12 ½ inch size as you can 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. Please note: when you measure, measure units with an acrylic ruler as you go so you can pick up errors before the entire block is made. When complete, measure under an acrylic square at least 12 ½ inches square, not on top of it, after pressing. Also, be sure to 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. Turn them over, trim your threads and cut 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 me at [email protected]. No Exceptions.

    OK, Boomers, let’s play!

    I think instead of multiple colors I am going to go w/ shades of brown. Anything from cream to chocolate. Just please use my fabric as the "background" I will include a note.

    Good morning, Dunes! This is the fabric that I'm sending for this group. I'm asking for COC background with any matching yellows, solids or TOTs. I'll use the dark brown for sashing and binding. So excited! Let the fun begin!

    This is beautiful fabric as always. Those roses are such showstoppers you don't even see those sweet butterflies at first.

    Good morning, Boomers! You found us. I’ve posted pix of your fabrics in gallery already. Should be the first page. If anyone has changed their minds and isn’t going with one posted, let me know and I’ll remove the existing pic.

    Also, I need a reply to last night’s email so I know you got the info. Thanks!

    Very pretty blocks H4B.

    Sewbiz your fabrics and my paisley fabric are quite similar. Still unsure of the colors to add, eas thinking of a true brown and dark greens but just not sure.

    I decided to go with the Tula. I’ve put together bags
    with a focal print and coordinates from the All-Stars line, feel free to use with any colors you want or stick with the coordinates, it’s wide open.

    Nice blocks, Hav4... were they 10" blocks enlarged to 12" by the borders? I do that sometimes if I want to make a block out of my 10" block book.

    PamO, Yay for the Tula Pinks! So glad you went with that decision.
