    I have all my envelopes addressed. I put my board name and group name on the lower left corner. I just have to get the fabric ready and stuffed. Hope it goes in the mail tomorrow. I can't wait to get my squishies and start sewing.

    Hi Alikat...

    I pre washed my fabric and of course it shrunk some. That is why we pre wash it! Cutting my F8's they are a bit short on one direction. I didn't worry about it. I sent them anyway. 10 X 18 is just as good as 11 X 18. If it were several inches short, I'd worry about it. Its still a lot of useable fabric.

    I hope you enjoy the swap. I have done 3 other boomerang swaps here and have some wonderful fun quilts from the blocks.

    hugs, Jupiter

    Hello all!
    I will be leaving for Canada early tomorrow morning for a work conference and be returning late on Thursday. I am not sure how often I will be able to check in as it is a super busy one with events all day and dinners too. It is the World Credit Union Council conference and The Global Women's Leadership Network as well.
    So I hope you all have fun, behave and try not to miss me too much LOLOL You can always send me a PM or email and I will answer as soon as I can.
    Hugs
    April

    catgirl, you are really fast. I received you fabric today and it is beautiful. I have to give it a little thought before I make the block. My fabric should be mailed tomorrow morning.

    Hey Traveling Gramma.... I got your fabric in the mailbox today. Looks like fun fabric. This evening I will be checking out block designs for this one.

    So glad to know that the postmaster actually sent everything out!! I had brought an envelope a few weeks ago and had them check the weight and thickness and they said it was ok for just a reg. stamp. Of course they did that before and I found them back in my mail box!
    Enjoy the fabric and have fun! Try something new!

    Brat, I have never recieved your new address. Want to mail out Monday. Sent you a PM request for address. Will mail all others on Monday. I will mail yours after getting your address.

    I have not recieved any objections to sending coordinating fabric square to send out so I will cut them today and stuff the envelopes. The envelops are labeled and ready for stamping and mailing.

    I set up 2 photo albums and put the links in my signature box. 1 for blocks I made and 1 for blocks received for ALCYONE and CELAENO. If you want to peak, go to it! If you want a surprise, don't do it.

    hugs, Jupiter

    I am here to say if you didn't PM me for my new address, didn't mail to the Ralston, WY address I think April did not send corrections. So PM if you still need my address please!!!

    I received five squishies at the Ralston Address. I am going there for dinner tonight - actually we are all going out for delicious Mexican food oh yeah! margarta bowls here we come! oh they don't deliver it in punch bowls anymore? dang.. a trough will be fine I promise to let everyone know whose fabric came in when I get home. Five I wonder what tomorrow holds for me?? two blocks that is my daily limit before I flop over. I will do two more on Monday and Tues and Wed (do you detect a pattern here?).

    I hope everyone takes serous the need for a uniform 12.5 block that your returning. I know you may think your checking it but I can truly say the best way to keep up on not redoing that block is to check your cut is it accurate? are you using an accurate 1/4 inch seam? put painters tape on your machine if you need help seeing that edge. Also there are a ton of videos available for free on line on how to cut, sew and MEASURE your finished block. I know its harping but I just put boom 8 together. Only 21 of my blocks were 12.5" some were a lot bigger some 3/4" inch smaller. I received back over 35 blocks. If you need help trying to figure out how to square something up so its even on all sides ask!! if you whack a bunch off on one side then you might take the points or edges of your block off leaving an uneven block. We all try our very hardest. Its easy to just guess its the right size. Take your time. This is the no rush group.if you have time I also suggest making one practice or four practice 12.5 inch blocks to make sure you have it down before you start cutting for the swap. Any quilt store near you will also give you tips on how to do this and the advice well its free take it!!! ok off my lecture box and back into margarta bowls.

    happy sewing! off to sew Marytoddliz's block. I think Aqua is the way to go in my minds eye or maybe the pretty purple. Her little grand daughter is a total kick. She is perfect for a high energy quilt that little one! oh oh MB I got your fishies today in the mail Muchas Gracias Amore!

    I received some bubbles in my package from travelinggramma. I love the fabric. Can't wait to see the finished quilt. I have to work tomorrow so I will hope to work on your block Monday.

    When I saw how your fabric was folded nice and flat I opened all my envelopes and started over. Now I am much happier with them now but I missed the P.O. today. They will be out Monday morning.

    Thanks

    Dahna, so sorry to hear your missing four. Hopefully with a small group here we will all be responsible. I have to ask are these same four that are missing playing in this boom swap now? If you alert April to the players who are not fulfilling their obligations she has the right to ban them from playing until they do. Just a thought. EVERYONE this is NOT a huge commitment. Fourteen Blocks. You get fourteen blocks. I will be extremely unhappy if this happens in this swap. I will find deadbeats. On a positive note.. I believe in all of the players. POST POST POST it lets everyone in the group know your alive. Less scary for us. Overall Dahna I think this is a good group of players. Right guys??

    SEWING TODAY! yeah!!! Send your fabrics so my box of envelopes can grow bigger and bigger. I love it!!!! oh a sunny 82 in Cody Wyoming today how about you guys?
