    April,

    I still need to take pictures of the AH fabric that I have. Just haven't had the energy since getting home from the hospital. I really really really am in love with all AH fabric. I was the one who sent out the solid kona black and asked for bright colors used with it. I got some wonderful blocks back. I have enough to make two good sized twin quilts one for a boy and one for a girl. Oh and I got my mother to join in this time around. Woohooo.

    I love!!! fabric like yours moonrise. I think I may have sent one almost like that for a previous Boom.

    With my dyed fabrics, I don't care about the color of the black. I'll figure that out later. Also, given that I have a large golden retriever, very hairy, service dog that sleeps on the bed, and sheds all of the time- it may turn into a huge wall quilt!

    I'm pretty sure someone sent the same or VERY similar fabric in another Boom, because I found a tiny scrap of it in my scrap bin a few days ago. I bet it was yours!

    This is the fabric I have picked and its all ready to go. I would like this to be the focal point of the block.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    We had one other solid that came it was a hand died rich peach tone. totally beautiful fabric. I would say the hardest one for me was the tie die blue and teal with white and you could only use white. that one stumped the heck out of me. On the one wanting only black your not concerned about all the different shades of black that might come back to you? We also had one that came with two fabrics and a note asking to use only those two if we could. But that was only one out of fifty. Sending two fabrics ensures you get what you want BUT is expensive to send I think.

    now that pretty teal pasley fabric.. who makes that ..is it a Kaufman fabric? I love it and I am not one who runs for the blues.
    the daisys will be fun to work with. for some reason I have been thinking daisys this month

    most of the fabrics that are sent are made the focal point of the blocks sent back. Thats why the 18x11 cut is so much better to send. it allows for a whole lot more variety in the block you get back. larger cutting area for bigger pieces.

    Well, tracibug scammed me out of my planets fabric-- KIDDING! We are doing our second fabric swap.. can we say new best friends?

    Is is okay to send half of my group one fabric, and the other half a coordinating fabric? I don't have enough of either of these fabrics to do a full swap. Half the swappers in my group would be getting the paisley and half will get the coordinating dots. I think they would make an adorable quilt when put all together.

    LOL That is her in her swim cap and goggles. She takes swimming lessons once a week which she loves. She has giraffe legs so once she figures out the concept of keeping her head under water there will be no stopping her and she can join the team She is super excited about that!

    Very nice yosa- lots of paisley this year. I know you ladies must have liked mine last year, now this year I have flowers. Marybrace you could join us and then we can look at your pics too and you'll have all kinds of help making a new quilt. Hurry, there's still a little time, isn't there April?

    Well, I went to the PO in fact I stopped at two different ones. I had the 4-1/8" x 9-1/2" envelope with me. They told me that it would cost me $1.95 each one just because I had a small piece of fabric in there and it wasn't considered a letter it was considered a parcel. She told me if I want to take the chance and put 65 cents on it as it only weighed an ounce, but they might catch it at the other end and know that it isn't a letter in there and would charge the difference to who it is going to. Now I don't know what I want to do. I definitely don't want to put $2.00 worth of postage on each envelope as that would be $30.00 in postage. What do you all suggest that I do? Please let me know. When she felt the envelope she knew there was not a letter in it. Help me any suggestions.

    pbadder, If you plan to write a note with each one then wrap it around the fabric so they will feel the crinkle of it instead of the fabric Much better chances! Maybe find a couple people in your group willing to be test subjects and send to them to see if they got charged? (If we get the same group you can test on me.)

    Hopefully someone a bit more know how will know what to do!

    pbadder, I wrap my fabric in the press n' seal cling wrap stuff. Then I put a note in for each person. No issues when I do that. Usually it is 65 cents for me to mail like that.

    I've received several that are in the press n' seal with a piece of copy paper wrapped around it and I get those for right around 65 cents also.

    Thanks for the compliments on my fabric! I'll be glad to do a side swap as long as I have enough extra fabric (I should).

    Fabric.com calls it "Marrakesh", and it's made by Fabric Traditions. It shows that they're out of stock now, but here's a link if anyone needs more information: https://www.fabric.com/ProductDetail...0-5907c0f1c1d5

    Love the green paisleys!

    I fold my fabric the length of the business size envelope and fold the edges in. Use good quality envelopes, sometimes dollar tree has the cheap thin ones so ,pay a few cents more and buy a good box of envelopes. Make sure you spray starch your fabric it before mailing and it will prevent from bunching up and help keep it flat.. I also send a letter the size of envelope, makes it more firm and flat. Postmaster wants to make sure it is flat like a letter.
