Once you prewash and remove salvages, you may find that 2 yards wont yield 16 pieces due to shrinkage. You can always send multiple fabrics. They dont all need to be the same for each person. And FYI, groups will never exceed 20 so the most you will be sending is 19 F8s for your other members and possibly keeping one for yourself.

I bet your trip with your son will be hugely enlightening and educational. A couple of our Boomers live the RV life, at least part of the year. 😀

Thanks Janice! I was starting to think about the 'multiple fabric' choice. I could send 12 pieces of one fabric then another 4-8 pieces of another fabric. I could get two smaller lap size quilts from that! These are great possibilities!

Hi, I will be joining the 3 month swap. I was in Boom 9 and 10 many years ago. I have come across the Quilting Board website and just love the ideas of the boom. Boom 9 was the very first swap I ever did. I have to wait a few months for the new boom to start. It was challenging and scary at first to work on other people's fabric. I ended up having lots of fun trying out all sorts of different blocks. I took a long break from quilting and got back to it last year when I all the sudden have so much time at home. Looking forward to the swap and meeting all of you.

I'm in (with a twist) for the three month group. With Janice's permission I'm teaming up with my quilting friend stcpawz. It will be her first boom. We are going to split the blocks up and each do half. We'll each send our own fabric, so there will be two fabrics ( you,ll get one) from the MJP/STC team. STC and I quilt together most Thursdays. Since we each are almost complete with our Moderna vaccine we'll be able to quilt in my sewing room again.

My daughter's twin pregnancy ran into a hiccup and she is in the women's hospital until (a very early) delivery. We consider each day the babies stay inside her a victory. The hospital has scrounged the 2nd Pfizer vaccine for her and her babies will have some protection against Covid. As soon as the girls are born I will be spending much of May in Omaha helping with the two other kids. I am going to bring a sewing machine and sew with my bonus grandchildren.

MJP what a glorious sewing area, I am jealous in a good way.

Last night we found out they will be moving our new trailer onto our pad late this afternoon. It will be a huge relief off my hubby’s shoulders. Hope all goes well.

Have a great day

We have a storm coming through too which should bring much needed rain. The pressure system though is messing with my head, so sewing strings together is about my speed today!
