    Is it just my imagination or are the blocks getting more varied and exciting then ever? I think I am seeing so much variety and new blocks that say make that one make that one! to me. lovely selection ladies absolutely lovely. Abbys blocks Traveling grandma and Old Cat lady can you tell me the names of those? I would love to add them to my Christmas quilt I am making and they are so striking.

    I wish everyone a marvelous day. three more blocks heading out of here today maybe four if time allows. Its getting late yet the sun is barely up ontop of the mountain. It hasn't hit here yet. I love to sew in the sunshine.

Size:  1.22 MBI'll have to wait until this afternoon to check the mail and post any updates as to blocks back or F8's. Our little PO is only open 1-5p.m. now. Cloudy here today and it looks like rain, but maybe later sunshine I hope.

    The blocks are looking so awesome. I agree with Elisabrat.......I want to try some of those too. Well I haven't sewn since last WEdnesday. I feel terrible. I had jury duty for two days, a quilt run on Frid, Helped my quild out on Sat, Church and grocery shopping yesterday and now it is Monday. This morning I am going to a lady's house who is going to show me how to use my embroidery software and maybe I can talk her into helping me to use the darn machine. LOL. But I hope to sew this afternoon. I have to start cranking out those blocks. I have 46/90 done. WHEW! It is so much fun.

    Elisabrat - the block I made for Abbys Mom was called "X Marks the Spot" and can be found at Blockcentral.com
    I know that this year I have really attempted to do different blocks and trying new techniques.
    I wish everyone would post their received blocks on this thread so we could all enjoy - pretty please?

    I also would love to see everyones received blocks! It always gives me ideas and thoughts for other blocks. Or post a link to a page of your own that whos the blocks you have made or received? Im loving all the blocks this swap and it does look like people are getting more creative! My son still ahhhhs and ohhhhh at the compass block I received in my black/red/white swap... just not brave enough to try it myself yet!
    People may not remember what you looked like or what you said but they will always remember how you made them feel!

    This is the link to my albums for all Boom swaps.

    Hello everyone, I have finally caught up with the posts and I see that some may have thought I had disappeared. I have not, I have my F8's wrapped and ready to mail and since I was late getting them out I thought I would just add them to the finished blocks when I returned them, well it might have been a great thought but I have them wrapped to go in one size envelope and the finished blocks in another and they don't play well with each other. I have five more finished blocks to get sewn, fabrics all cut just need to sew. Hopefully I will have most out this week. I do have two fabrics that came without instructions so I am in hopes to get some feedback from you folks in case I may have miss some special post. Babyfire04, her fabric is purple with dots and The Mamahauser, her fabric is a marble type green and brown.

    I am rearranging my sewing room and guestroom. The sewing room will no longer be 1/2 guestroom now. I did manage to get a block out today for NanaKathy in the mail. Hope to get a few more out this week. Phannie

    travelinggramma was worried about not using all black...she didn't want to make a black heart. Dad said that was okay since his pirate days of having a black heart were over He "loved" it too along with your great note.

    I received your fabric lovinggrandma. I also received some pretty blocks today which of course I am going to share with you right now!

    The first is from gaijin. Thank you I love it! the second is from Nanakathy beautiful pumpkin patch! and last but not least is from Travelingramma. A very cool block with a nice story to go with it. I did want to mention perhaps all the tape you use on your envelopes is why they are charging you so much? Nanakathy sent her block for .66 cent and yours cost $2.07! If you folded longer flatter and only used scotch tape on the flap I think you could cut the cost of sending way down. That is ridiculous! and yours was in the same type envelope same type inner wrapping (not a baggie which costs a lot more too) .. just wanted to try to help you a bit because that would definetely put a huge dent in my budget.

    There is nothing so far for me to put pics so sending and reloading..

    I think she also puts tracking on them so that adds additional cost. I don't put tracking on them...guess I've been lucky too.

    Did you peek at the block I posted for you Brat on my link?

    oh dear ... send her your fabric QUICK guys. Jaba is outta blocks to sew. Didnt you do something like 90???? OMG. so glad I decided not to compete with you this year. oh heck no. It has to be hard to be finished and not get any in the mail back those are the long days. When do you need to finish this quilt Jan? I am sure it has a deadline like all your other projects. I say if you havent done mine yet put Jabas before it. It wont bother me at all. I am happy with slow and steady right now as I dont need things done asap. I do hope they call come home before the end of the swap this round if possible. I had two come 30 days late last time. I had given up on those. In fact they couldn't make it in the quilt I had already sent it to be quilted. I will get two more out this afternoon. I keep saying ok only X amount more! then another piece of fabric comes in. I thought I had them all but apparently some are still sending? SEND ok?? Its so muchmore fun to count down 30, 20, 10, 5.. way fun for me like a little high that comes from accomplishing something. It feels good to getter' done. Anyone else get that thrill on the last block?? or am I the only dork here. DONT ANSWER THAT. I will live in the dillussion that there are others just like me. less scary.

    Yep just like you Brat, like to getter' done. That's why I don't have anything to sew. Have started squaring up all the blocks and putting sashings on them. Have got all the Indian and Atlantic group done but still holding off on actually sewing it together. I need to put some on the long arm and get them quilted so I can take on vacation next month to have something to do. That binding will get done in no time. Better than twiddling my thumbs. Have about 3 yet that need quilted, 1 large and 2 smaller...like table cloth size from the mystery quilt. Maybe today my mail box will have something in it.

    Jaba- you are on my table ,,,,,,your Fabric is on my table! It took me awhile to find the perfect matching fabric to go with it. It sits there and I put a couple of pieces by it - and the next day I say "what were you thinking???" and try again. But I got it now!
    Yes, thank you for the tips about the tape. Did I tell you my DH helped!! i sent out a stack yesterday at a different PO. I put in "invitation" size envelopes, didn't let DH help, no heavy tape, and they were only .92 or 1.12 - So I am a happy camper
