    You can appliqué if you wish. All up to you. Usually there are 16-20 people in the small group. It's all fun!!!

    that is allowed. you can send the muslim for people to sign I am gearing up. finished minus one row of border my rubies quilt enough left over to make a wall hanging that coordinates! those are the applique blocks as I was so worried they might not wash as often as the pieced. If you do applique its really nice to get a satin stitch around the edge to make sure that they are washer friendly. even with fusible underneath a straight stitch around the edge will fray over several washes same with the pretty blanket stitch which I love to use on applique too. No rules but thats just my humble washable opinion. Big groups are fun too.. quick join a big one. it worked out so so few blocks a week even with over 50 last time I finished in half the alloted time. "LUKE COME OVER TO THE LARGE GROUP SIZE" imagine what you can do with 35 blocks!! one great quilt or maybe a couple crib quilts or a few wall hangings for gifts, a cozy just for you! or table mats go check out diamonds and Jabas placemats they came out wonderful. (how am I doing guys anyone else join yet?) wait! Yosemitesa.. get out those pom poms! its.. song and dance time.. COME ON OVER TO THE QUILTY SIDE! come on over to the ..

    oh yes everyone get well immediately. it has been said so shall it be done. (tada)

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

    tlambing read the 1st page. April tries to keep this very close. 18X11" pieces, small group you will send out 15 plus 1 for yourself so you end up with 16 blocks, large group send 35 plus 1 for yourself, end up with 36. Can we see some sneak pics at the fabrics some of you have ready to go? Then maybe I get an idea of what I have to go with it or if I need to make sure to get some blues, yellows,etc. Well not really, just snoopy want to peak. Pics Pics please.....

    Thanks jaba. I guess I stopped reading too soon. Scanned again but didn't see it. Maybe my adult onset attention deficit disorder has finally gotten the better of me I'll get cutting this afternoon!

    I was think abouat this adult onset attention deficit disorder. Hmmmmmm I am thinking that people who do crafts like quilting, knitting, etc. have craft attention deficit disorder or CADD. that's why we have lots of UFO's, many projects going at once, and just keep creative juices flowing. What do you all think? How many of us have CADD

    Hi Everyone,
    I still do not have enough for a large group so perhaps those who want a large maybe two small?? There is still time for signups so get your friends and family to join us so we can do one large and lots of smalls lol. I had had my fabric picked out for this go round but I am still not sure if I am going to join in this round or not lol
    Hugs
    April

    April, I signed up for 1 large and 1 small. I can do 3 small if it helps and just do some extra side swaps.

    This is my first adventure doing a boomerang so please be gentle! LOL I was surprised to see that some send a variety of F8's. I guess I figured I would be sending all the same F8's. What's a newbie to do??? Also, does the group want pictures of fabric I'm considering? Actually, my potential F8's might come from a large scale fabric, so it might be a good idea to see it 'intact'. hahahaha - - -

    Thanks in advance for your guidance!

    How many of you remember the Empress Woo line from Free Spirit? I think that would make an interesting swap. Here are a few fabrics from that collection. Let me know what you think.

    Sure we want pics of fabric.
    tlambing I already posted mine #65 or 66. Right in there, the florals, 1 blue and 1 purple. Think I'll have some side swaps too with a few people for my flames but that won't be my "mass" mailings. Got them all in the envelops and just waiting for addresses. I like your fabric this time around too, and yep I got those colors....
    I PM'd you April but in case you didn't get it, if you don't get the large group that's okay I'd just do 2 more small ones.

    Jane, thats very pretty fabric! Trambling, yours would be great to work with!! Ive got my Boom 8 maroon blocks put together but they just barely cover the top of my queen size bed so have to figure out what to do with the borders to make it bigger. Had one block left over that Ill make into a pillow to go with the quilt.
    That was the lst time I had divided up my F8's 1/2 one color 1/2 another and probably wont do that again as it doesnt make enough blocks for a good size quilt. Cant wait to see everyones fabric again!

    April, if you dont have a FULL large group will there be a cut off to number in it? I would like to send out 35 F8's so if I need to sign up for a small group too I will...
    People may not remember what you looked like or what you said but they will always remember how you made them feel!

    This is the link to my albums for all Boom swaps.
