    Boomerang Friendship Swap 10.0-CELAENO Group

    Boomerang Friendship Swap 10.0 CELAENO Group

    Mailing deadline for completed blocks will be November 10,2013.

    Hello and welcome to the Boomerang Friendship Swap. This swap is about a great opportunity to get a large number of blocks from all over the world made by our online quilting friends.

    How it works:
    1) You will select a fabric or selection of fabrics from your stash (or you can buy new-up to you) and cut them in to Fat Eighths (18 x 11) or (9x22) We prefer the 18 x 11 for this swap as it gives a bigger cutting area for certain blocks but either measurement will work.
    2) You will send each member in the swap one F8 to work with. The person who receives the fabric will make you a block with your fabric in it.
    3) You may advise the person of colors you would prefer they use or not use but please do not request specific blocks. This is meant to be a “friendship” swap where your friends pick, design and create a beautiful 12.5” unfinished block for you based on the fabric you send them.
    4) In turn you will receive an F8 from each member in the swap and have to make them a block.

    Rules/Guidelines:
    (please make sure to also refer to the basic policies that apply to all swaps announced through the board.)
    1) Please make sure all fabric is prewashed prior to making the block and sending it home. You do not have to wash the fabric you receive.
    2) When sending your fabric please make sure it is in some kind of sealed item (Ziploc baggy, saran wrap) with a piece of paper or even a peel-off label with your name, address and quilt board name so that the items are protected and won’t get mixed up. Please do this when returning blocks as well. (This way if for some unhuman reason the PO mangles a package the plastic has a chance at saving the work and with an address visible it just might make it home)
    3) Please mail your F8 within three weeks of receiving the address list. This helps ensure we all have ample time to work on everyone's blocks.
    4) Please handle all fabric received with the utmost care and place it somewhere where it won’t be lost or forgotten about.
    5) In order to help keep track of the blocks sent and received I will be emailing out a chart to all members who participate so that you may fill it in as we go.
    6) All blocks should be 12.5” unfinished. They can be regular pieced, paper-pieced, appliquéd-whatever the quilter decides to do. It is up to each individual. Again the feeling is to get a true friendship quilt out of this. Please do not request specific blocks as the idea is to let everyone, of every level join in and try new things and grow.
    7). Please remember to trim your threads, cut your dog ears...in essence remove any excess work from the back of your block that the receiver should not have to worry about. We do not want to have any extra bulk in these blocks that are not needed (harder to quilt them :-) )
    8) You may sign the back of the block if you wish to or perhaps pin a small muslin square with your name, where you live and what the name of the block is.
    9) Please measure your block before mailing it. We all started somewhere but it is nice to be able to get all the blocks back measuring the same size so the quilt can go together nicely. So measure, measure and when you think it is right, measure once more
    10) Please make a block that you yourself would be happy and proud to call your own.
    11) This is a one block per swapper swap. You will have to make one block for each member in your group (not including yourself.)
    12) Please be courteous to our swappers and post when you receive either someone's fabric or a completed block. This helps us to know the postal gremlins are not at work lol If for some reason you cannot get on the board to post please let me know and I will let the members know. We appreciate interaction with all of our swappers. You can do a weekly update as well if that works better for you.
    13) Have FUN!!! This swap will let you explore your creativity as you do not have to make the same block for everyone. You can try that block you always wanted to. Try new fabrics, new colors...step outside of your comfort zone in to a different box

    PLEASE DO NOT SEND FABRICS/BLOCKS WITH PERFUME OR OVERWHELMING FRAGRANCES ON THEM DUE TO ALLERGIES. THERE MAY BE MEMBERS OR FAMILY MEMBERS WHO HAVE SEVERE ALLERGIES TO CERTAIN THINGS SO PLEASE TRY YOUR BEST TO NOT SEND ANYTHING THAT COULD CAUSE AN ATTACK

    Also please remember when posting on the board to use members board names or just first names and not their full names. This is a courtesy to our members as the information here can be seen publicly and we do not want anyone to have that private info.

    Please, NO public complaints or criticisms of other swappers, items received, or other type for any reason. ALL complaints must be addressed by Private Message (pm) to me. THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE!!!!!

    Just one more friendly reminder-please make sure your packages have proper postage on them-if you are unsure either take them to the PO or throw another stamp on. We do not want anyone to have to incur any extra expense during this fun time. Also be aware postage could run high on this swap so if you think that may be an issue you may not like this swap.


    I think you will find yourself enjoying the blocks because you can work at your pace as they come in as long as they are all out by the established deadline once the swap is closed.

    As always please feel free to PM me with any questions or concerns-I am always happy to help.

    Hugs

    Woo hoo! Glad to see both some familiar faces, and some new ones as well!

    Here's a little sneak peek of my fabric, which should be going out in this morning's mail. The flowers are small, so it should be easy to work with, and there are lots of colors to play with. For those in both the Taygete group and the Celaeno group, you'll be getting two identical F8's, mailed separately.

    Thanks for swapping with 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.

    Envelopes are labeled and ready to go, will put the fabric in them and get to mailbox hopefully today. Now i did realize, in case some of you did not, that we have one special person on our list, Gaijin. She is in Japan. Wow, how exciting for us. So be careful when sending that you put enough postage on the envelope. I calculated for 1oz, which is what mine weighed, with using the rigid envelope option to be $1.30. Hope that helps you ladies.

    mine was in a 6x9 envelope and cost 1.10 at the PO today. Having a little extra to be safe is a good idea though.

    All of my fabric is making its way home to y'all. FYI- I used saran wrap, a small note in each one, and a white business size envelope. Domestic mail was 66 cents for each one. Japan was $2.05. Since there are some of us in more than one group, I wrote on the back flap of the envelope which group it was for. Hope this helps.

    I just realized after i got both of my groups done, that I did not put the name on the outside of the envelopes to which group. It is on the fabric note though. This group is the salmon floral fabric.

    I Have her in 2 swaps. Postage will be less to send one heavier envelope than 2 light envelopes. So I will be doubling up for Gaijin. fun-fun-fun!

    hugs, Jupiter

    Let's see if I can attach a picture of my fabric. Most of mine are this piece of red. I came up short just a few pieces and I used another that will coordinate with it. I'd like a cream TOT or COC background so everything will go together nicely. Prefer no muslin or orange, please. Other than that, anything goes!

    Here is a picture of my fabric. I would like either color green, hot pink, light mauve or white. No blue please. I am sending mine out tomorrow. This is my first time.
