    boom 7 quilt

    okay girlscouts1 I got it measured and mine is 6 X 7 blocks set with 1 1/2" finished sashing on sides and bottoms. Then I put a narrow 1" (1 1/2unfinished) border and another 2 1/2" finished border on the top, bottom and sides. Mine measures 84 1/2" X 98 1/2". Then I measured if you do the same size sashing, you should have about a 57 1/2 X 82" for a 4 X 6 setting, for a 5 X 5 you would have about 71 1/2 X 71 1/2". If you wanted the 82" length but wider you could either make 6 more blocks and add extra wide sashing on the outsides. Hope this maybe helps you decide what will work best for you.Name:  DSCF0843.JPG

    Ooooh, pretty quilt!

    I'm getting caught up from the weekend, and will post an update momentarily. We biked almost 17 miles this weekend. Whew! Not too bad for someone who hasn't been on a bike since she was a little kid. My husband built me a recumbent trike, and I'm pedaling all over the place.
    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here. Please note that I'm usually unavailable on weekends, but I'll get back to you on Monday.

    That is GORGEOUS!!!! I didn't receive all my blocks back. I have 27 blocks.... so it would be either 6x4 or 5x5.... I unfortunely don't have any more fabric either to make more... so decisions..... Since fewer blocks, was thinking 2 1/2 inch sashing.... I can post what I have and see what you think....

    Nice blocks!! Thanks everyone, wish the lighting was a little better in my living room at night but I really love this quilt. I'm going to put it on the love seat in the TV room downstairs. It will look wonderful and I'll get to look at it all the time since my long arm table and machine is set up in there. I did make 4 blocks and have 2 left that I received a little late so I'm going to make some throw pillows to go with it. Gees, I'll have the best of 2 worlds, I get to look at it alot and if I get tired I can just lay down and rest my noggin' for awhile.
    Forgot to add, so proud of you Quiltermomma, you did great at the fair and you should be very proud!!! It''s alot of hard work plus all the other stuff you've had to do with the garden and all. Take a breather for a little bit, you so deserve it.
    Elisabrat didn't get there for dinner, sorry, but I'm sure it is delicious!

    Moonrise, I just can't wait to see your finished quilt, it is going to be so beautiful.

    I am sending blocks home to Daisey, Tam Moo and Nancia.

    No squishies in the mail for me. Everyone that sent me and F8 should either have their block or have it shortly. Please let me know if you did not get your block. And thank you so much for being in the Swap with me, I have really learned a lot by swapping little bits of fabric!
    I am missing 1000 projects, areinn, lv2sew2011, and maricalee.


    This has been a really fast swap for me. I am going into phase 2 of my training so I won't be around as much, until after it is done! But I will be here in spirit and once I have this run behind me (my last one for sure for sure) I am going to just do exercise running and leave the distances to the young and younger.

    Thanks, Marybeth
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    wow such pretty blocks that came in! I can see the vision. Marybeth I havent got fabric from those also and i think we are not the only ones.. maybe they just decided to not play? would be nice to know all in all.

    I sent a block to April, fun heart and a card too. i did not sign the block as well, I dont have any fabric pens and I dont think a sharpy is the best next choice. It was like making a valentine, a grand idea Charlottemarie!
    Congratulations on winning all those ribbons quiltermomma, I bet you are very proud and should rightly be so. What a rush. I think also those bandstand squashers of fun need a life. Sheesh. sit down? give it up cowboy nice try.
    Raiders fans here, though truth betold its by association. Needless to say we were not jumping up and down with joy tonight. Where is baseball when you need a team pick up? sheesh twice.
    dinner was delicious tomorrows will be also extremely good. Jaba your chair awaits you. Wonderful beans and hamhocks.. truly good the store here has a real butcher, you pick your own food before its wrapped.. first class all the way. Those hamhocks have an amazing amount of meat on them, three beans, basmati rice and a cool salad with pears, pecans and feta cheese.. rice wine vinegar. Taking orders now, just submit them to yourcookingtoomuchfood.com that the kids wont eat because there is vegetables in it.. argh. oh oh made a head of roasted garlic tonight, french bread and baked brie to go with it, well no left overs there.. so sweet that garlic was.. yum. tomorrow also is roasted eggplant with carmalized onions on french bread with feta also.. no left overs and that poor boyfriend can starve get em hungry enough it might sound good. doesnt eat vegetables in my house? joke right?

    Which means of course (banging her head against a wall repeatedly) that Mosher92 got yours! They were the only 2 that went out that day. Sorry, ladies. I blame DH, of course, he was probably begging for his dinner or something and distracted me. Let me know the postage and I will reimburse you both.
    Glad that missing f8 showed up, little devil. Was it at least looking guilty?
    Quiltermomma, you are my hero. I can't even get up the courage to consider entering one of my projects into a public area.
    I took a couple days off from sewing and did some much-needed yard work. I did get a heart done for April, though. Back to the machine today.
    Received an f8 from Daisey, and a beautiful grownup block fromLinda58. Thank you both!
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    If you put your quilt blocks on point with a secondary design of an hour glass it will definitely be big enough. that is what I am doing with mine because I did a small boom 7 swap. With 16 blocks, 4 x 4, and then being on point, I get a 70 x 70 size. I don't have it accessible right now, but it is an option for you to do.

    I you have enough material you could make another border, just like the one you have now that goes between the block rows and then add a solid black 1 in there too just to put between the 2 or if you don't have more of that fabric add a black row and a light blue row between each one with the border you've already made and then around the outside. This would give you added length and width either way. It turned out really nice in the 2 color scheme.

    Sorry I haven't been around more this last week or so... my second machine up and died and so I'm taking that as a hint from fate, or karma, or the universe (whatever works) that I needed to take a break from all things fabric for a few days. I'm heading up on Saturday to get my main machine back and so I'm extending that fabric-prohibition until Sunday morning. Honestly, I have just felt like every time I touch thread, or fabric, or even the iron - I've just jacked it all up. Does that happen to anyone else?

    I rec'd a block in from GirlScouts1 yesterday.

    Other than that, I am missing F8's from 1000Projects, AreInn, GirlScouts1 and Lv2Sew2011.

    If you sent it out - let me know please! My mailperson keeps delivering my mail to everyone EXCEPT me - and if I know enough details, I will hunt these things down!

    All the blocks coming in (and going out) are looking amazing.

    Hopefully this funk passes over soon and I can get back to business.

    It will pass, I've been like that all this week too. Maybe it's fall fever setting in. Like spring fever? I just put it down and go to my next thing, if I mess that up, I put it away for the day. I think I need an outdoors day and that is very unusual for me. Now for my update, I am sending out a block to Chewboo tomorrow. See what a steam engine I've been...
