    [QUOTE=moonwork42029;5759376]Names, names & names... come on y'all-- I know April needs suggestions for the group names.

    I like the "candy" idea from last time since I'm sure we're all on New Year resolution diets (rolling my eyes)...this might be the only sweets we get each day Snickers, Baby Ruth, Tootsie Rolls, Mints, etc



    Peanut M & Ms.....

    This sounds like an interesting swap, but I have a question before I join. Is it best to send everyone in the group the same fabric, a different fabric, or a fabric that has a theme but each piece is different? What do most people do or have a preference to?

    Jannie, it doesn't matter, whatever you want the final outcome to be. If you want a quilt out of a main fabric, like red roses, send that to everyone. They might put red and white with it or only white....All you blocks would come back with the roses, but each block would be a different pattern or co-ordinating color. If you want it all different, then you can send it out that way. You can also state in a little note your preferences. Like on the Boom we are just finishing up, for my fabric in one of the groups I asked that they do not use red. Hope this will help you, love to see you join us, we need new people and different ideas.

    Roseirish48, welcome, glad you're going to join. Heard you were watching very closely this last one. Are you going to be able to convince anastasia to join again or is her schedule to demanding with working now also. I know she is busy with work and school.

    Jannie,
    As Jaba stated (thank you), it truly is up to you and what you hope to get back from the swap. If you want one really large quilt that is cohesive in some way send the same fabric to all. If you want two quilts split it and send two different focus fabrics. If you are going scrappy you can send all fabrics different. I have seen many different things done and to be honest, I have loved all of the quilts that have been made as a final result of the Boomerang blocks. I hope you will join us. We are always happy to help and answer questions along the way too
    So happy to see new names and "faces" and of course so thrilled over my continuing members.
    Hugs
    April

    Hello world! I am so happy to see all of you again. I look forward to behaving the entire time I am in chats. (uh huh). I did both groups last time and already am putting the top together for the small group. I ended up with a nice lap size quilt or huge baby quilt not sure. I think a large group is easy for almost all to do and a small group for sure. I hope tons sign up April. I have my spooky pumpkins all ready to go out to you.
    If your new let me tell you there is nothing like going to the post office and getting oodles of envelopes containing fabric. then when you send them back the anticipation of hearing your block was received and enjoyed. Then comes the real fun of opening an envelope and being suprised with the block someone created for you. This is so much fun. We had one lady who had lady bugs whose father, elderly, so much enjoyed seeing the blocks come back home. Too great for words.

    well that was as .. good as I can get world. Did anyone see it? I behaved right? New Years resolution to not be me. love resolutions because well they are meant to be broken. (the maverick in me)
    Linda
    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    I've done a couple large ones and a small one in the past....had to sign up for a large one again because the small one was over just too fast. Now that the holidays are over and I saw how much Dad enjoyed getting mail (yep, me with the lady bugs ) I know a large group will fit the bill once again.

    Come on in, the water's fine

    I said 2 small or 1 large, whichever made the numbers easier for April.

    This is my only boom this year - I student teach this fall and there's just no way I'm going to be able to do swaps, too.

    I might go into withdrawal.
