    Fabric Choices . Boom 23

    Okay, I am reading closely what everyone so far is doing here. I have chosen 3 different fabrics. I was thinking of making a "florida beach" feeling quilt. I chose 3 very different fabrics to send out. I figured the darker fabrics would make nice accents while the lighter fabric says the beginning. I look forward to seeing how others fill in the blanks. Happy quilting. Here is a pic of the fabrics I chose:

    This is not my first swap but it is good to be with another newbie to this swap. We will learn the ropes together. Happy quilting.

    Florida beach, I may need to look up pattern I made a few booms back (or more likely redraw it out)

    I just sent an e-mail to sign up for the 3 month set! I've done other swaps but I'm a newbie to this one. I'm looking forward to it since I've gone through the photos of previous swaps and they all look fantastic. The hard part will be deciding on what fabric(s) to choose.

    I was really looking forward to Boom 23, but currently have way too many WIP's and a ton of UFO's. I'll be lurking.

    Cricket looks totally content with her baby. If it's as hot there as it is here, she won't need her clothes for a while! Scorching here.
    These are my two fabrics for this Boom.

    Oh boy even more new boomers, welcome again.

    Love all the fabrics. Julia, I already have my fabrics for the next boom and I have gone with a Caribbean beach theme of coral and turquoise.

    Kass glad Cricket is doing well, when you have babies do you just have to wait and see if they have feathers or not

    Ha ha on everyone’s UFO’s and not joining this swap. I should be more like you, have 90% of my boom blocks sitting in a box just waiting for their day to be worked on. Not much extra sewing time in the summer since I spend the majority of my time in our destination trailer at the lake. Use to sew non stop in the winter but now having to much fun running around the country visiting my kids and hope to spend 3+weeks with my sister in sunny Texas this weather.

    Pretty what are you thinking for the fabrics we will add? That blue one looks like the inside of a fancy book.

    lol I was thinking the same thing, if I only played in booms when my previous blocks / projects / ufo's were finished I'd never get to play! I have made 3 or 4 quilts from previous boom blocks and have one that is almost finished.

    The background is striped print also, and they are arranged in the hexies for form rectangles.

    Juliasb, welcome! I hope you will enjoy yourself. As i may have said in my email, the swap (me) is a bit fussy the first time around, getting all the little moving parts (rules) set but ultimately, it's making blocks you are proud of. Once the shipping is out of the way, it's a piece of cake. And there are several new people so far this round who will all be learning the ropes. Don't hesitate to ask any questions because if you have a question, I can guarantee someone else has (or has had) the same one. There are no silly questions at all.

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.
    Kassaundra...hmmm, repeats huh?... Love the Cricket pix. It's good to see her and the baby looking so healthy.

    SuziSew, I've got your email but haven't responded yet. Will try to do so later today but I've got you down on the list for the 3 month. Thanks!

    Libster, thanks for the fabric pic. Am already grabbing the pix and adding them to the gallery. Do you know which fabric is for which group or does it even matter to you?

    Janice, let's do the black starry sky for the 2 month and the blue for the 3 month.black

    Kass, I'm asking for 1 bright TOT only with the black sky-no pinks please. It's for a young guy.
    The blue-anything matching goes. I didn't even specify a background color.

    OK, quick update. I did manage my emails already so everyone who has written to me should have received a reply.

    As of now, there are 15 people signed up for the 3 month group and one tentative. We have 6 for the 2 month swap. Max for each group is 20.

    I'm offline until the weekend. Will reply to emails in a day or two. Have a fun and safe Independence Day!

    I might be changing my mind. I have a piece of frog fabric that I love, but the frogs are way to big to do much with, but I only have about a yard of it. I am thinking about sending the blue solid fabric and then using the frog fabric as appliques added to to quilt blocks / sashing / border

    Hi all - I'm officially in! This will be my first Boom swap but I have done the Summer swap, two of the RWB, 9 Patch, and Birthday swap. My head is spinning with ideas of which fabric to send and I'm excited to dig in. I've followed some of the other Booms from a distance and they inspired me to buy a book of blocks and it was great fun spreading my wings and using it in the RWB. I will be in the 3 month group -- August gets busy sending the girls back to college, I'll need that extra time!

    Currently I am free motion quilting my first queen size quilt made from the 9 patch swap. My goal is to have it done by this weekend for visitors coming next week. That's another reason I like swaps --- I need deadlines otherwise the squirrel in me sees new and bright shiny things to do!

    Happy 4th of July!

    Welcome, IrishMom! I can't wait to see your 9 Patch quilt. Which book of blocks did you get? We love new Boomers!
