    Sonic screwdrivers, fez, bow ties, and Stetsons are cool.

    Joined this morning, first ever swap. Then found out my LQS is having a fabulous sale starting Friday! I think I’ll choose something outside my comfort zone and see what happens.

    I'm still thinking about it - summers are the busy time at work for me. Though I did get the binding on my Sooner swap quilt this afternoon!
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    Macybaby have you posted a pic? I'm interested to see your colorful blocks all put together!

    I so badly want to participate as I had a wonderful time playing in my 1st Boom (22) but I also see the list of projects and summertime obligations that already have me trying to keep up (actually, catch-up as I'm already behind). I reluctantly must stand on the sidelines for 23. So I hope you all won't mind if I lurk, enjoy your party from the sidelines and jump back in for the following cycle I'm anxious to see the creative geniuses in action again soon.

    If there are any 'newbies' considering joining this Boom - I highly recommend participating!

    I'm still debating on what I'm sending this boom. I was bummed I didn't get my act together in time to do my Zuni quilt. I got a back up piece of fabric that is rose / orange / white w/ a close repeating geometric type pattern, I will most likely send it, but am not 100% sure yet.

    Once a Boomer always a Boomer even if you aren't doing this boom you can still share by posting, you don't have to lurk quietly.

    Klaws love your bright fabric. Yes Kass Klaws fabric Is much more my style but totally stepping out of my comfort zone this boom. The other fabric will be a pastel. Terri pastel? Unheard of.

    Well, Macybaby and TheMerkleFamily, you've still got time to decide. Of course, you are always welcome. Maybe the 3 month group to give you the most time? It can never be more than 19 blocks to make as our max group is 20. If not, don't be a strangers! Drop in on us. Lurk all you want!

    GrameE, is this definitely your fabric for the swap? If so, I'll grab it for the gallery. Looks like there are some shiny metallic threads in it. Pretty!

    Boom Biz

    Reminders for our veteran boomers and new info for our newbies...

    Please do not post with all capital words as it's considered shouting by admin and your post will be edited. Use the editing tools above for emphasis... B for bold, I for italics, U for underline.

    Please remember to shrink all photos you post to 200 kb or smaller whenever possible. When we become picture heavy, large files really slow down loading of the pages for some, plus it saves me having to reduce 600 pictures before moving them to the gallery.

    Also, before posting pix, double check that you haven't revealed any personal info accidentally. Some Boomers use the marked baggies the fabrics come in as id in photos. There may be an address sticker or real name on them. Watch out for that. You may chose to reveal your own personal info but not someone else's!

    Thank you. Have a good day!

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Oh that took me 2 seconds to see the fabric I want to work with! ( the repeat one of course)


    On second look that lightest one might have enough repeats to play with too.

    I want everyone to go wild and use any color in the fabric except yellow in addition to WOW. I think it will be so much fun to see what everyone comes up with.

    As a newbie to this swap I am very excited to be a part of this group of swappers! I have my F8's ready to send out and rippin' to go! I haven't done a swap like this in many years as life just got in the way of such fun. I love quilting and have been quilting now for more than 30 years. I mostly love patchworking. My stash will long outlive me. This swap is a great way for me to dig into my stash and use it for just what it is supposed to be used for. I have been on the Quilt Board now since 2010 I think? I went inactive a few years ago, as I said life got in the way. I consider myself an intermediate quilter.
    I am looking forward to getting to know as many of you as I can. Be patient with me as I learn the ropes of this swap. Who know's I might get it just right the first time around.

    No pics of fabric yet (until I decide for sure) but some update pics of Cricket and her baby. These are about a week old but they are still doing great. She got to shed her maternity clothes since her baby has some feathers, and it has warmed up quite a bit.
