    The weather is bad here too, Queenbarbiej. I was hoping to do my full two-week grocery run, but turned around and headed back after the truck thermometer read 31į. It's bitterly cold and raining. I was afraid of it turning to sleet. Better to be safe at home than play games with the weather!

    Janice, I mailed my package out and just emailed you the tracking number. The lady at the post office was admiring my fabric as I was addressing the envelope, so I explained to her about the swap. She thought it sounded like a lot of fun!

    Thank You, Janice! Will gladly follow along. I like the idea of a swap where we'd get to do whatever block we chose with the fabrics. I'm not too sure about my keeping up with your group though. Make 19 blocks in two months? Go Sooners!!

    We also have a 3 month group. The Laters. That group usually fills first. 19 in 2 months is completely doable for a lot of people. Itís not for everyone. Iíve done both but do prefer the 3 month. Youíll find it here: https://www.quiltingboard.com/member...ml#post8197964

    Janice, mine are in the mail and sent you tracking. Glad you ladies like the fabric, I thought it would be fun to work with and make a pretty quilt too. Looking forward to the blocks you come up with, seems like they just get better every boom we have. I think maybe with all the blocks we make our skills just get better and better......not a bad thing at all

    I think you're right, Jaba! I know mine have improved since my first boom swap.

    Today the wool rug pad I ordered (for my ironing board) arrived! Yay. I love pressing on it! The only thing is they shorted me 2" in both directions from what I ordered. Couldn't get through on the phone, but I emailed them and asked them to send the right size asap. This one doesn't quite fit my board, tho I will use it until the other one comes.

    My ironing board was so "hard"... this is really quite an improvement!

    I'm not sure my name was intended to be highlighted. Since I'm new to the Booms and not sure I can do more than one block per member, I only want to commit to one (so, 13 total). I hope I didn't accidentally sign up to double up, did I?

    Thanks, Janice. I thought I had screwed things up!

    Corrected rounding up list

    Zozee, not at all! I put a check mark beside the wrong name. I always count on there being a goof or two. Years ago when I started doing this, I used to freak out anytime I made an error. Now I count on it happening. I'm a big girl now and can deal with my mistakes much better. LOL.

    The list follows. Those highlighted should send me 19. Zozee and NanaKathy55 should send me 13.


    Cheesehead*
    Darcyshannon*
    Hav4Boys*
    Jaba*
    Joanelizbay*
    Libster*
    Macybaby*
    Mona G*

    NanaKathy55
    Queenbarbiej*
    NZquilter*
    Sewbizgirl*
    Terriamn*
    Zozee

    *Will be “rounding up” to 19 F8s/Blocks
    Zozee and NanaKathy55 - 13 F8s/Blocks

    ***************************

    FYI, I've gotten emails from several people in both groups noting packages are on their way. Looks like they will start arriving tomorrow. Be sure to send me your tracking info right away. I have more packages coming in than i have emails so if you haven't advised me, please do. Thanks.

    Have a good day, Boomers.

    My package should ship today - sent an email with the info last night.

    I'm excited to be starting on this - it's so fun to pick out interesting blocks to try, knowing I only have to make one! And I get to play in my stash picking out colors for each block, and I can use FQ and smaller chunks because I don't need enough for a whole quilt. To me, this is total play time!
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    I agree, Macybaby! I've been looking through all the block patterns from the links shared earlier. I love sampler quilts.

    We had a pretty bad ice storm last night. It took my husband over three hours to get home, but I'm just so glad he was able to get home!

    Sooners: My Cupcake Fabric

    Name:  IMG_7038.jpg
Views: 205
Size:  178.4 KB

    Here's the fun fabric I've chosen from my stash. The quilt we make with it will either be a donation into Baltimore's foster care system (a friend of mine is a social worker) or it'll be a tummy time quilt for when my grandtwins come to play. I'll decide that later.

    I'm asking that Sooner Boomers use any color you see in the cupcake fabric except black or white.

    I have plenty of this fabric, so if you mess up, don't be afraid to ask me to send you another Fat 8th.

    I have mailed off my fabrics this morning. The cupcake fabric looks fun and yummy. I already have a few ideas on that fabric.

    Sooner: Rainbow Plaid for 4 of you

    Name:  IMG_7039.jpg
Views: 101
Size:  241.2 KB
    Because I miscut some of my cupcake fabric, only 9 pieces ended up as fat 8ths. So I searched my stash for coordinating fabric that I can incorporate into the same quilt. I cut 4 fat 8ths of this rainbow plaid (grid? weave look? what do you call it?) .

    I am asking that you use any of the colors in this fabric, but please only solid or tone-on-tone so it doesn't get too busy.

    I like your “weave” print, Zozee. I’ve had that one before. It will go great with the cupcake fabric.
