    Hey all My blocks arrived and they are wonderful! Thank you so-o-o much!

    Jaba - how big is your beautiful medallion? I'm using two sizes, 23" for the lap quilts and I was thinking 65" for the bed quilt.

    Got my blocks and have been playing with them. The medallion is 24 x 24" and I'm going to do 6 blocks wide and 6 blocks long so I have to make a few more. I started laying them out, trying to decide what colors to use and where...but it is a start Thank you ladies for the nice blocks, it will make a great boom quilt.Name:  DSCF3412.JPG

    Received my blocks yesterday and just had a chance to take them out of the baggies today. I LOVE them, all of them are perfect. Thanks for putting your hearts into each and everyone. I am going to try the QAYG method with these.
    Happy Sewing, Lisa E.

    I just returned home form a weekend visit to Iowa to see parents and in laws to find my blocks!!! I took them out of the baggies and even tho I haven't finished boom 17 quilt yet I think I will be putting this one together first. I bought some orange and purple fabric for my borders a while back so i'm ready to go as soon as I figure out a layout.

    I want to thank everyone for the lovely blocks, this is going to be am awesome quilt and I can't wait to see everyone's finished quilts from boom 18.

    I'm back and happy to see that packages are arriving.

    Just want to let you know that I've just heard from NanaKathy and she asks for your prayers. There's a serious medical issue with a family member that has quickly come up. She and her family are very worried so any prayers and/or healing thoughts sent their way would be welcome.

    I've got to check on the Aprilites now. I'm so far behind...

    When I start it, I am going to piece them the old fashioned way and I may make them 12 1/2 blocks instead of 6 1/2. I'm not sure I want to work with such tiny pieces.

    Just got in from Memphis and found my package! I've opened every bag and taken out every block and I'm so happy with them! Like someone already said, the gallery photos do not do them justice! In person they are even more beautiful. The blenders you all used with my fabric are wonderful. All the differing reds and grays I got are going to look so good together. I'm doing the Stormtrooper quilt (Star Wars), in case you forgot... and I was thinking about QAYG with a turquoise sashing, just to introduce another color for some 'pop'. I think it will look great with the black and red and grey of the blocks. And thank you for the bonus blocks I got, too.

    My son in law is going to go nuts over this quilt! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I've made 5 more blocks today for my Stormtrooper quilt. That brings the count to 30, for a 5x6 layout. I had you all use gray black or red with my print, but I planned to use an aqua for sashing and QAYG. So these last 5 blocks are the blue blocks, with the same aqua as my sashing. I was hoping to toss in this little bit of blue to balance out the color scheme. Now I can begin to QAYG the blocks. LOVE using my smaller pieces of batting up this way!

    I will get to mine after I finish up a couple more UFOs that are on deadlines of April 15. Lots more quilting to be done. These blocks might give me a breather, we shall see. The setting fabrics for these blocks got set aside in a pile lost in the abiss of cleaning up and moving the longarm.
