    I sure hope I don't get into a fast group! I'd rather take it slow and easy!

    for my groups, I am going to make color wheel blocks. Each block will be made with just one color. If you have a color you especially like or have lots of one color of fabric, if you're in my group, please let me know and you can make that color of block for me.

    I can work with 9x22. And it IS an acceptable cut listed in the rules so you're OK. A vintage sampler sounds intriging, I hope we're in the same group

    Good evening all! I'm fairly new to the board. I have sent an email to join a small, fast group if space is available. I'm looking forward to Boom 10 and getting the opportunity to get to know you all a bit and make blocks for you and receive some in return. I'll just wait to get a confirmation before I start picking fabric - although I think I know exactly what I want to use already. Fingers are crossed there's still space!

    Please don't drop out. I am completely happy to use your fabric to make a block for you.

    Welcome to all of you newbies - I was there two swaps ago - so nervous about making the perfect block for everyone. And then I realized how much fun it is to play with a piece of fabric and only have to do one block and you can experiment with fabrics and colors and patterns - and oh my, how much time you spend on quilterscache.com and all the other free block pattern sites. whew - and you get to make friends and look forward to checking the forum every day cause you might miss something.....
    I have yet to get a "bad" block from both of the swaps - even a basic 9 patch works with all the other blocks!

    I fold it to fit in a regular long envelope and us pressnseal plastic wrap and it flattens out really well and I never pay over $0.64 to mail out fabric and lots of time my return blocks work out that way also. I also press t well so it is as flat as it can be

    I wanted to send a solid green and ask for Christmas prints, but after reading the post it sounds like most have solids in their stash, not prints. Would it be better for me to send out a print instead?

    I have lots of Christmas prints Marcialee so either way is good if we are in the same group!

    I have very little solids and TONS of prints. In fact, before Boom 9 started I bought a lot of Kona solids in case I needed them and they were my saving grace. I'm going to stock up again on solids and blenders. I have a huge container of xmas prints so no problem here

    I actually don't have any solids at all but will get them as needed from my LQS. I'd guess you should send whatever you want to send and we'll all make it work out!

    Decisions, decisions... There are pros and cons for both solid and prints.
    I saw in one boom there was this pretty yellow solid that swappers added solid white to. Sure made for a beautiful quilt. I think that was probably listed in preference note. Solid or print, if you have a preference a little note. Whatever you decide on, print or solid, I can't wait to see. It will be fun to work on all the different fabrics.

    A whole bin of Christmas prints at my house! I rarely buy solid. I hate working with solids I do love blenders/tone on tone fabrics. I usually have to restock on basics blacks whites, reds, blues for the swap. Soon as you buy one shade however you find you need another one oh darn it! so blenders are wonderful to use. I recall a swap were black was sent and we were asked to work with brights. I love the prints coming in its like shopping in a quilt store a bit of this a bit of that... the best part is getting one you say UGH to only to find once you have made it into a block you really like it. so..its a great learning experience the boom. and you do get a little bit better with each block.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    I much prefer that you send the solid and we add the print. I do have solids but I fid it hard to have the right shade. Plenty of Christmas prints I never seem to use so it would be great to add to your solid green.

    I would be willing to use a solid with my Christmas prints also.

    Well said, again, Linda! You are on a roll!! LOL Personally I think send whatever YOU want because its YOUR block thats gonna return to you and if you have a certain request ASK...people are great about cooperating with requests!
    Im ready to begin...cant wait to see the fabric you all send.

    I agree with the ladies above.. This is YOUR fabric. We all agreed when we signed on to swap that we would follow any special requests as closely as possible, so choose whichever fabric you want to see repeated throughout your blocks. I don't think there's a single gal on here who would be mad if they just *had* to go to a fabric store and buy a little to make your block.
    The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow. Do good anyway.
