    You think so well alikat110.

    (Maybe those interested in a fast swap could also sign up for a regular swap group. 1St 2 months focus on fast swaps blocks, 2nd two months focus on regular swaps blocks. This, in essence, would give them 2 fast groups, one right after the other! )

    Sent an email. One small group at the 'snail's pace' for me!
    I love quilting - it's cheaper than therapy!

    I guess I do have a few moments of brilliance! (Hehehe....just kidding.) Just seems logical. It will keep the fast turnaround pace for those who want it, and they won't have to wait months for the next swap.

    I did sign up for one fast paced small and one snail paced small. This will keep me busy all summer. No slack for the ocd person.

    Hi April, I would like to be considered for the small group again. I participated in the small Boom 8 and it was fun.

    Actually alikat110, it is equivalent to 3 blocks a week since it is 8 weeks, you will have spare time. My bad in the Boom 7 & 8 swaps was that I worked on them, but then piled them up and then did them all in a week. Yes, they can be done in a week. But if when the fabric comes in, you work on those that came in only and get them out, it works out pretty good. When they came in I would pull fabric for the block that I thought would work without knowing the type of block and then when I sat down, I had all the tools infront of me so I could enjoy puruising my patterns. It works for me. Also, if you decide on just one block, the rest is even easier to do the fabric pulling from your stash. Just a few thoughts. I also found that I needed to follow the sheet April sends you. So wonderful it is. Then you can remember who you mailed and where you are at with each block. It works out pretty good. I am not an organizer so if I can do it, anyone can.

    Boom 9 was my first swap ever. I learned so much from everyone and had so much fun! I did a small group because it was my first time, but because I have the summer off and no plans I am going to try a big group and a small group. I already have my quilts planned Cant wait!

    I have enjoyed the Boom9 so much I would love to go again. I would even brave a large group (slow pace). Thanks April for hosting again.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    I started working right after 9 started and had a hard time getting myself organized and ended up being 4 days late on mailing the last 4 so In think I will sit this one out and try to get myself together better for the next one lol

    I want one fast small and one slow small. I just sent an email confirming the same. I think this is a fabulous idea. Now all I have to do is decide on fabric.....

    I am missing 3 blocks as well but I am sure one is on the way. The other two, I have not seen either one even post a block they have received, might not have camera ability, but not even a note. We had only one in Boom 8 that did not send any blocks, but she received them all. Hope she made a beautiful quilt. Would love to see it posted. Well, I am still thinking on 10. Happy sewing my sister. Ctmhjenn

    Frenchfryqueen and Jane...you were not in my group but I hope you decide to join again! There are the majority of people who get the blocks back in time...others life happens ...but take heart in the fact that MOST of the ladies are very good at getting the blocks back...Im still missing 3 but they have been kind enough to post that they are sending them soon...In 8 swaps Ive only had 2 people not even acklowdege they were sending and never posted a picture or sent my F8 back....needless to say they havent been in any other swaps! HOPE you both join and maybe we can be in a group together!

    Thanks for the kind words, Joan. And believe me, I am very understanding about life getting in the way! I know deep down, we'd all rather be sewing! I think the girls will come through, and since I posted that, one has put hers in the mail. I've been keeping an eye out for any swap fabric that catches my eye. So far, none has.
    The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow. Do good anyway.
