    Scrapper you are way ahead of me...I don't even have my fabric picked out yet. Have been trying to finish up some other things, but will work on this over the weekend and maybe get it all out by next week. I am usually one of the ones ahead, but this time can't find the extra time. Can't wait, love this swap. Thank you April for setting it up.

    Marcialee, how did that gorgeous fabric you used for the last boom come out?? We all wanted to keep it! I think it was to become a wedding gift?? Pictures!! I am working on putting together the Boom 8 blocks this week, hope to figure out photos so I can share them with you all. My f8's should go out today or tomorrow. Does anyone know if it is possible to attatch a copy of the merged labels list to an e-mail? I could send it to anyone who can't get it to work correctly. Listen to me, I sound so confident now that I did one little tech thing successfully! I probably won't get e-mail to work!
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    I hope to have all the F8s in the mail today. My fabric is a boring plain black. I put notes in most of them, and then forgot to add them for some. Ended up slitting most envelopes to be sure notes were really there. Tried to be smart and use addresses from past Booms to do some of the envelopes ahead of time and it ended up taking more time overall. Let the fun begin!

    Twin, you should be able to save the labels as a file then all you would have to do is attach it to any email you send out. I couldnt get the merge to work either but typed the address on my label form and it worked great. Hope to get several pieces of fabric next week! Cant wait to see what everyone picks!

Only have about 24 of them cut, just can't figure out what to send for the rest..... guess it's time to swim in the stash and see what surfaces Is anyone doing/requesting a side swap?

    Cutting, ironing, cutting, washing . . . forgetting to bring the list home from work. It appears that I'm a "little" behind.

    My fabric will go out next week, I have not purchased yet, will purchase at our quilt show this weekend. 60 vendors!!! now you see why I waited. I will be using only light neutral tones, which are off white, cream, beige, tone on tone, print on print , and white on beige. I prefer no solids ,however a few will be ok, if it is from your stash,for this will be the only colors in the blocks. I have never chose this palate before, but have seen a few quilts like this, and decided upon it. thanks to all of you , cuppy

    oooh a beige on beige.. I can do that. interesting does the contrast come out enough to determine hey that is an ohio star or a log cabin? havent seen one of those.

    black on black.. ok for those without notes what did you want put with yours?

    ok for dad: he likes what type blocks the most? hum an applique cat? I am scared of doing the applique as well how well they hold up in the wash.. like them for wall hangings but worry even with fusing you get ..frays at the edges. then wont dad be mad about that> lol everyone of us loved making your blocks for him to enjoy. It was an absolute pleasure to know he was sitting there waiting on go for them to come in

    APRIL YOUR PLAYING!!! great fabrics. scared me a bit that orange one thinking holly heck what do put with that! so I am sure your envelope to me will be stuffed with that one. my luck. This is the cool thing about this swap. You work with fabrics you might never have used otherwise and it pushes me to think differently. And almost always it was successful. Seeing fabric in a new light. Kinda like.. going to the fabric store where you go oh that is pretty oh that is cool oh that is.. but we buy x fabrics instead. Well here.. we get to fabric store all sorts of things and the end results are amazing.

    He likes all the blocks... I've done several applique cats and went around the edges several times so I don't think that is a problem. This quilt won't end up washed very often so it will be tenderly cared for with him.

    Yes I am. Since I have already been certified might as well prove it right? :P
    I think I will go home this evening and stuff your envelope with the orange so I do not forget lmao It is actually a beautiful print in person but I only have two yards of it so I think it would be great for my swap friends to help me out

    peaking in from work....shhhh... don't tell anyone

    I haven't had a problem inthe past with the mail merge but have with this one. it's the 1st time I'm trying on my new laptop so I'm sure it's me! I had 7 left over labels from Boom 8 that I matched up and the rest is going to be hand written will take me a little longer to get out.

    so glad to see more internationals playing this round

    I haven't worked on the quilt yet as I am so behind on stuff. It is for my nieces wedding and I think it will be beautiful. I have a hard time figuring out how to finish stuff off. I don't trust my judgement. I can get any pictures to post on here. I got a new computer (gateway, exp 8 and don't know how to use it).

    I glad to get this party started. Question ladies some of you have a hyperlink to your blocks in your signature area how did you do that? remember i am computer challenged so go slow on me.

    last Thank you April for putting this all together for us. We do so much appreciate it. No small job at all.
    I held up the bolt for ANastasia to see and asked her what she thought. She told me to "go for it!" I hadnt really meant for her to say it was perfect for this swap but went with her suggestion. But then I didnt buy enough as some are going to get a different fabric that I PICKED out. I'll be sure to send you a f8 of the material Ana said to send out just to make you happy. Happy block making everyone!

    Mine all went in the mail today. It was $0.86 per envelope and then about $1.20 or so for each of the envelopes with 2 F8's and also Canada & Japan. They raised postage prices as of 1/1/2013 - I forgot about that. I need to get some stamps so I don't have to travel to the PO every time I mail a block back to you ladies!

    Its funny how different post offices charge isnt it? I only put 66 cents on all the envelopes except the two out of country. I sure hope the PO was right on the amount!!

    To put a hyperlink in, go into your signature edit area. Type in whatever words you want to be the link, highlight them, and then click the button that looks like a world with an infinity sign at the bottom (Not the one with the red X). It will open a popup where you put the link to your pictures. Hit Ok, then save your signature. That will put the link in your signature.

    If that doesn't work, send me an email and I'll talk you through step by step

    I think that everyone is excited to get going. I was a big idiot who wanted to do all the groups so I am buried in material. LOL. I take one day at a time and I am totally organized for each group so I won't get confused. LOL. I too am sending all the material in oned envelop to anyone who is in more than one group. But dn't despair each piece of material will be labeled as to what group it belongs to. I still have to cut some of mine up and I think that everything will be ready to go by Monday. Yeah...........Squishies are a coming.

    All of mine went out this morning after all, even the international ones that I lacked stamps for. DH ended up having to go to Lowes, which is near the post office, so he took them for me.
    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.
